The great thing about having a long-running blog is I can type almost any word into “Search the diary” box over on the right hand margin, and find posts about it, sparking memories aplenty — sometimes even memories that are amusing or thought-provoking.
Some enjoyable posts I re-discovered yesterday:
- 28 Dec 2004: What’s changed (Since my sister went away)?
- 5 Sep 2003: I’m tempted
- 25 Mar 2002: Blessed commute
I’ve just attempted to use the search to recall if I’ve read the seemingly unscathed copy of Ben Elton’s “High Society” that I found in the bookshelf. No answers, alas.
But it does let me work out if I have blogged about a particular topic before. ‘Cos I try not to repeat myself excessively. Yes, I try not to repeat myself excessively. I sometimes hope I can come up with at least some kind of new idea every day; something inspired that will give people something to think about (in the same way that a really good book gives you a new idea every few pages). Though I usually fail to do so.
