One F*cking Year!

I know, I can’t believe it either – who thought I would stick around a whole year (my recent inactivity ignored of course). Yup, Redhead and I’m Always Right have been around for 365 days (or wait, is today 366?). Why I started on Valentine’s Day is anyone’s guess, but what a year it has been. I had many weird moments, spilled my guts to you people, pissed many of you off (sorry about that, but I seem to have a gift), told some classic Redhead stories, bitched about…everything, lost a job, gained a job, blah, blah, blah. So, in true blog fashion, we’re going to celebrate with a look back. Here are some of my favorite posts:

My 3rd post, and a nice little introduction to me.

For all the ladies out there – this wish list is still pretty fucking accurate.

My first Drunk Redhead story.

One thing to know about me – whether you like it or not, I love me my Yankees. Oh, and…um…A-Rod. Shut up!

Seriously, this is how my brain works…it’s like I have ADD or something.

My friends and I are so weird.

When it comes to certain guys, pride apparently means nothing.

I still can’t drive a stick. Just saying.

You can find the weirdest stuff on the internet. But for me…well, that just gives me something to write about.

I was in a bad mental place when I wrote this. Sadly, I was in the same mental place yesterday, yet I wrote NOTHING. You’re welcome.

For once, I gave legitimately good advice. Strange, I know.

So I had a fight with a spider, and MAN did I lose. The Hideous Trifecta: One, Two, and Three.

I am a goddamn awesome friend, and don’t you forget it.

I should have realized at this point that it was only a matter of time before I became a vegetarian.

I may be a selfish bitch, but for my nephews…I’d do anything.

An important lesson: I’m not nearly as cool as I like to pretend I am.

And…ah shit, this is getting long. OK, I’m going to stop here – if there are others from the archives that you want me to link to, just say so and I’ll add them. If not…well, you suck. Either way, I guess what I’m trying to say here is I’ve had fun this past year. Hope you have too. Now enough of the mushy stuff – I’ll be back next week with some more Redhead goodness/badness/whining/annoyingness.

Congrats on the anniversary!

It's been a great past six months or so since I stumbled across your blog. I appreciate your honesty and willingness to share the adventures of a smart, beautiful and semi-crazy lady.

Thanks for letting us peer into your little world as you pass along life lessons.

Chivalry isn't dead, they just don't grow real men where you live anymore.

Dave: Wow, that felt like such a compliment until you called me semi-crazy (which may be true, but still...).

paine: No shit. Yet more pearls of wisdom from the mind of Paine - my new favorite commenter.

Red, thanks for the laughs, entertainment, and even the disagreements. There are very few people who I'm willing to disagree with on-line on a regular basis, believe it or not. It's usually a waste of my or their time, but here it's entertaining and educational.

My own one-year anniversary was 2/11...what is it about Valentine's Day season that inspires people to start blogs? Wait, no one answer that, I just figured it out.

mcb: Awww, I knew you liked me!

bella: It's been a weird year, but...not so bad all things considered (after all, I got to meet all of you guys)!

Wow, I'm such a dork right now.
