Blog Carnival: Kickin' it Old School

This post is a part of 20SB’s Looking Back Blog Carnival, and Ben & Jerry’s is awarding free ice cream to lucky bloggers and readers! This month’s theme is “Looking Back” and we are to post something from when we first started blogging.

I started blogging back in May of '05. And just looking back at the first 50 posts is the most entertaining thing ever (probably only to me, because I pretty much treated it like twitter and wrote some random ridonculous stuff)

One in particular that I like..

The banker's been detained..

Last night I was getting into my Monday night tv routine of Deal or No Deal, followed by 24. Checking the tvo, I was alarmed to see that Deal or No Deal was a 2 hr special. How could Howie Mandel do this to me? Was he not aware of Jack Bauer being stuck in that warehouse explosion last week? Of course I was loyal and switched over to 24. But then I got to thinking..

How cool would it be if Jack Bauer was on Deal or No Deal. It'd go something like this....

You know it'd be great television.. cos 24 is all about suspense, and what do you know.. so is Deal or No Deal. And out of all the briefcase girls, the ones with the big amts like 1 mil and 750K would be Russian spies, that Jack Bauer would have to kill. And then it'd be a huge fight sequence with the Banker, showing his true identity as President Logan. I know it could never work (because its Fox mixing with NBC obviously) but still.. a blogger could dream can't she?

And just because this is the only time its kosher to RP (i'm guessing thats how i say Re Post, like Re Tweet?!) this is the time that I wore Men's Cologne to work by accident...

I wore men's cologne today.

It all happened when Jon gave me all of those makeup freebies last weekend. Well one of them was a small DKNY Be Delicious perfume. Or so I thought. I opened it this morning and it didn't have the spray attachment, you had to dab it on your wrists and then dab it on your neck to put it on. That Donna Karan is super trendy. I noticed it was a little stronger- but i just figured i'm just used to wearing my signature Ralph.

It wasn't until about 7 hours later where I kept on thinking a guy was near my cube because every now and then I'd smell that Guy stench.

Then the wheels in my head started to turn, and a google search later I realized this must be the guy version of DKNY Be Delicious and I MUST be wearing it.

Not that there's anything wrong with it. I just felt like I was hanging around a bunch of dudes all day.

You were still hilarious back then!

I've almost gone out wearing men's cologne too but thankfully I was told before I left the house.

I'm obnoxiously laughing at my desk right now. Thankfully, I'm the only one here. I'm pretty sure you were one of the first blogs I started reading right before I started mine. Sniffle.

Okay, actual LOL. I've seen Howie out and about twice, once with the gloves on, and once not (because he was eating). Poor guy. He's writing a book about the germs :)

Also, I love that you are like, who's that smelly dude?... oh, it's me.
