Bon Anniversaire, L'Armoire!

A year ago today, Lady Crumpet's Armoire emerged from the foamy brine of my brain to reside here in cyberspace.

It's an eventful day offline as well. Last Monday morning I gave notice that I was leaving. By that afternoon I helped interview the fellow who's since been hired as my replacement. Today the boss is taking me out to lunch, since she'll be out next week. Not long after, I'll meet with HR for my exit interview, since that person will out next week as well. There's too much work left to slack off - in trying to leave my job on a good note, I've actually put in extra hours to get things done so the new guy won't be quite so overwhelmed, and to be honest, so that I don't create ill will when I leave. No one's asked for it, and I suppose I'm a dupe for doing so, but professional purpose is ingrained in me, however I feel about the job and this workplace.

Of course it hasn't been all that bad. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for meeting my good friend and officemate Zeebah. (Miss Zeebah, btw, has a new domain and has finally moved over to using MT. Congrats!)

No great words of wisdom to impart. I feel really engaged with the world, both the external and the internal. I've rediscovered an inner life that ached for expression. I've learned a lot from working the nuts and bolts of running a blog to current events to the thoughts and lives of others. I've made marvelous, dear friends. I think my writing has improved. I'll just try to stay interested, and if you want to stick around, I humbly thank you.

Yours, &c., LC | 11:57 AM | Blogos | Comments (6)


Let me wish you a happy anniversary! I used to think that blogs were like bad middle school diaries until I saw you work on yours--man, did you show me I was wrong!

You've been writing since a year now, congratulations! It's always a pleasure to review your latest news and opinions.
I think the weblog sphere will undergo constant changes as an evergrowing process, hence variations from bad middle school diaries through to a more sophisticated opus as well as sheer tutorial weblogs will enrichen the landscape my humble opinion. It's good to have them all somehow.

Aw, thanks everyone!

I suppose keeping a blog doesn't mean one automatically deserves to have readers. Though I suppose one may get the readers one deserves. ;)

While the internet is reflective of life, there's a lot of online driftwood out there, and I'm rather dreading what will happen once AOL gets their blogging system up and going. Perhaps their current generation of users won't be quite the nimrods who first appeared on the scene, but my hopes are rather faint.
