Five Years of One Catsafterme After Another

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

On September 13, 2011, The Terrible Catsafterme (along with my nephew Adam) turned five years old. It’s been quite a while since I’ve written extensively about the mechanics of this website. While it’s kind of fun to write about such things, it’s not always the most interesting reading. This is currently the 1286th posting. Out of all of these, this is only the third that I’ve dedicated to blabbing about the website. The first one had its merit as it was celebrating the first year anniversary of the site. At that time, I felt like I was a seasoned pro. The second came just six months after that, with the sole purpose in announcing the change of moving from a daily posting to four postings a week. It also speculated that I was about halfway through what I had originally envisioned as a three-year project. This one, as it happens, is here not only to celebrate and reminisce about the first five years of the website – which still isn’t even close to completion, but to point out some improvements I’ve made to the blog.

The Great Transformation of 2006

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

First of all, another disclaimer. The pictures that go along with the posting (and most particularly the humorous one of Briana at right) do not in any way, shape, or form tell my story from this time period. They just happen to be the only pictures at all that exist of this time period, showing what Ashleigh was snapping away with her camera, while I was on the literal verge of snapping. This posting will cover the segment of my life from March 26 thru July 7, 2006. It was assembled with a heavy reliance on old emails, jottings in my work calendar, and my own memories. It tells of what I consider to be my great transformation from one person into an entirely different person in matter of three months. Read the rest of this entry »

December Pontification 1986

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

I have something interesting that helps me recall some events from December 1986. And even more so, it takes a peek inside my head during this time period. And what’s more, it’s all fake. But not really. The truth is that I somewhat cheated on my 7th period English assignment  from Mrs. Walters, where we were charged with writing a daily journal for almost a month (which included our Christmas break). I didn’t fill this thing in daily at all. In fact, I’m pretty sure I wrote most of it in study hall after I had returned to school following the holidays. Read the rest of this entry »
