One year later


Today is a very special day: DCoE is officially one year old. Happy 1st birthday to my blog! Here's my very first post. Over the past year, I've learned that I am not a good a writer as I had previously believed (but I make myself feel better by telling myself that I deliberately use a "conversational" writing style), I read a lot of books and watch a lot of movies, I have a bizarre fascination with interspecies friendships, and try as I may, I just can't rise above indulging in celebrity gossip. Thanks to all five or six of you who read this thing, and especially to those of you who leave comments. Comments are like crack to me- they make me feel oh so popular and interesting. So far, I've enjoyed working on the blog, although lately things have been picking up at work, which means more science and less screwing around on the internet. Speaking of which, off I go- I will try to post a longer summary about the first year later on this week.

It's been enjoyable reading your blog over the last year. It's good to know what's going on with the 'ham crew on a regular basis.

Happy 1st Birthday, Eileen's blog!! Fyi...Your blog is awesome. I read it often - not that you would know, b/c I rarely leave comments. But I'll try to do so more in the future. I leave you with this: We're still the funniest people we know (but you're way funnier than me). -Lauren

Congrats! I also read but rarely leave comments! Maybe I will try to be more proactive in commenting. I agree with you that comments are like crack! I love when I get a new comment on my blog as well.
