A Special Month

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 15 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 15 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 15 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

For all of my present buying fans who missed my birthday and are looking for some excuse to buy me a gift, I have exciting news.

This is my ninety-seventh post. My hundredth is not far away. (Although I have recently deleted a post from the archives, and with good reason, so my calculations will be one post out if you try and count).

Secondly, Friday marks my first anniversary. It will be one year since my first post here on The LBSC, which is clearly going to be an emotionally happy occasion. I’ve already authored my very special post which will go online this Friday. I hope you will enjoy reading it.

If I get chance, I may well post twice more before Friday, so that my Anniversary post and Centenary post coincide. How lovely would that be?

As for what’s actually going on at the moment, I’m busy revising for my exams. Which is depressing. But never mind…in three weeks’ time, I’ll be off until October. Provided I pass my exams, of course…
