I recently realized that I am getting dangerously close to the one-year anniversary -- blogiversary, if you will -- of Around the Subject.
And I'm also realizing that a big plus of having a year-old blog is being able to look back at what I was doing around this time last year.
Thunder Over Louisville, for instance. If I had any doubt about my rather vocal refusal to attend this year, I need only read back over the horror that was Coming Home From Thunder last year.
I have a friend who is, I think, boycotting Thunder this year for many socially-conscious reasons. Me, I just hate the traffic. And it's kind of cold. And it might rain.
So today, I will be celebrating the start of the Kentucky Derby Festival by going to Costco, spending a birthday gift certificate on some cool jewelry from Just Creations, and probably making homemade pizza for dinner.
Not a firework in sight, and I'm cool with that.
