It’s My 4th Blogaversary!

1 Jul

Technically, it was yesterday, but I forgot to post about it (this morning’s joke refers).

It’s hard to believe I have been blogging for four years, but I have: 2561 posts’ worth.  You wouldn’t think there was that much nonsense in the world, would you?

Despite the teeth falling out of my mouth and feeling generally unwell and forgetting to do the kind of stuff I do every day, the blogaversary crowns a rather good week:

  • I had a poetry reading
  • I had a poem accepted for publication
  • My son made me burst with pride
  • My other son phoned home, which made me burst with happiness
  • I have a new secondhand couch in the lounge AND we managed to get rid of the old secondhand couch on the same day so it wasn’t lying around the bottom of the stairs blocking access in case of fire
  • My friend sold her house and found a new one so I don’t have to worry about her
  • I had a huge stats bump on Saturday after a ten-month slump
  • I lost another kilo which brings my total loss in one month to five kilos
  • I had my first Have you lost weight? query

Happy Blogaversary to me!

bad memory, funny quotes

I have posted a joke a day for the last 118 weeks and four days…on Day 5 of Week 119 (today), I forgot!  Sorry.

By way of apology, here are some quotes about memory.  They’re not that funny but, if I remember correctly, I’ve already told you all the funny jokes about memory.  Also, they’re not that funny but, if I remember correctly, I’ve already told you all the funny jokes about memory (like that one).

  • Nothing is more responsible for the good old days than a bad memory.   Franklin P. Adams
  • Why is it that our memory is good enough to retain the least triviality that happens to us, and yet not good enough to recollect how often we have told it to the same person?   Francois de La Rochefoucauld
  • We can remember minutely and precisely only the things which never really happened to us.   Eric Hoffer 
  • There is not any memory with less satisfaction than the memory of some temptation we resisted.   James Branch Cabell
  • Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory.   John Kenneth Galbraith
  • When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not.   Mark Twain
  • He who is not very strong in memory should not meddle with lying. Michel de Montaigne
  • Nothing fixes a thing so intensely in the memory as the wish to forget it. Michel de Montaigne (1533 – 1592)
  • It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.   P. D. James
