Since I’ll hit 20 years of blogging this November, this year I’m posting a daily list of anything I published on this day in the past.

There are 19 posts previously published on November 20th

    • She’d heard all the comments: Everyone only remembers the first person to do something. Once it’s done once, it’s not exciting. Who was the second person on the moon, after all? But really—being the second person on Mars was still pretty damn exciting. Microblogvember: second
    • Apple sleuths hunt Northwest for varieties believed extinct: “E.J. Brandt and David Benscoter, who together form the nonprofit Lost Apple Project, log countless hours and hundreds of miles in trucks, on all-terrain vehicles and on foot to find orchards planted by settlers as they pushed west more than a century ago.”

    • Transgender Day of Remembrance I know and count as friends a number of transgender (including genderqueer, genderfluid, etc.) people today, and I'm very glad to know each of them, and to know them as they are. As horrible as this world can be, I hope that through ever-increasing education, visibility, and acceptance, each of them can continue to be true to themselves, and to stay safe and healthy, and are people I know for a long time to come.

    • Our house, all lit up for the holidays.
    • Whole putting together the bouquet for the table, Prairie decided I needed to be pretty too. Lacking a boutonnière, my zipper pull did the trick. (325/366)
    • Criticism is Patriotism To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.

    • The Answer is Probably “Yes” I'm trying to decide if I'm a hypocrite for being unsure about how I feel about Kid Rock's new single 'All Summer Long' -- which, though catchy, is little more than new lyrics on top of the riff from Warren Zevon's 'Werewolves of London' -- when I'm sitting on a 10.79 GB collection of 1,462 mashups.
    • Links for November 17th through November 20th Sometime between November 17th and November 20th, I thought this stuff was interesting. You might think so too!
  • 2007
    • Filler Post This post was intentionally left blank. If this were a real post, I'd actually say something with some actual content, rather than simply throwing a few random words up here to continue with the (mostly) one-a-day theme.
  • 2006
    • Header Images I'd like to get further into customizing my site later on down the line, but for the moment, I think most of my tweaks will be pretty simple. I have had fun grabbing a selection of images to use for the randomized header image at the top of the page, however.
    • Pop Culture Disconnect The professor spent a few minutes talking about the Mongol's invasion techniques, which were simple but could be fairly ruthless. After summarizing this, he commented, 'really, they were pretty close to the Borg.'

    • Basketbrawl I'm not much of a sports fan --rother's many years of goalkeeping -- but even I am likely to sit up and take notice when reports start hitting the 'net of pro basketball players jumping into the stands and beating the fans.
    • The Typical Briton The typical Briton is polite, witty and phlegmatic, but lacks a certain style and has a dental hygiene issue while having an occasional drinking problem.
    • 2004 Weblog Awards Nominations are now open for the 2004 Weblog Awards. I'm not sayin'. I'm just sayin'. ;)
    • It’s like a violin… Now, okay, admittedly, I have a somewhat stronger grounding in music than many people, but I am having real difficulties trying to envision how someone could make it to their mid-20's and have absolutely no idea what an upright bass is.
  • 2003
    • Miss Digital World Here's a fun idea for a new-millennium beauty contest: Miss Digital World, a beauty contest complete with virtual contestants!
    • Human Stupidity Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
  • 2001
    • Belinda rocks! Just a quick note to say that Belinda is all sorts of cool, and that I hereby bestow instant celebrity status upon her (at least among the five or so people that read my website).
