Thirteen

Me and Bill, circa 2003, Hawaii!

If my blog were a girl, it would be having a slumber party this weekend. One in which three of the girls are “real” friends, two of the girls are obligatory family invites, and one girl is the social status invite that ends up backfiring in a bad way and splits factions straight down the middle.

Pizza, cake, and boy talk, and someone will throw up. Truth or Dare, painting nails, and watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off four times in a row. Debating the merits and flaws of Janet Jackson versus Whitney Houston. Somebody will sneak in a cigarette, someone else will purloin some Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers. Someone else will throw up.

The next morning everyone will agree that what happened at the 13-year-old birthday party stays at the 13-year-old birthday party. Late night confessions of “who likes who” will be respectfully forgotten.

Despite the ringing silence around here as of late, I don’t intend on ending this blog any time soon. Thanks for all of the years of loyalty, my wonderful readers!

Twelve.

Snerkology has been around for 12 years as of tomorrow.

I’ve been blogging for as long as I was in public school.

I’ve been blogging for twice as long as my first marriage lasted.

I’ve been blogging since I was 26.

I’ve been blogging since before the invention of the iPod.

When I started blogging, gas was around $1.50 a gallon.

Perspective. I have it.

I’m probably going to regret this, but here is one photo of me from each year of Snerkology.
