Five Years Ago This Month: October 2010

Five years ago this month...

...I wrote a little bit about textspeak/netspeak. I haven't thought much about the theory I came up with there about the "vulgar English" of the internet lately, but it still makes sense to me. (You can see the origins of "OK" for proof that the English language hasn't just started on the road to hell recently.)

...I reviewed Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It was another old, reposted review. Basically I think that The Goblet of Fire is the high point of the series, and that's one of my only opinions about Harry Potter.

...I wrote about my participation in NaNoWriMo. After being called out for my romnov reviews, I decided to actually try to write one myself.

...I was distracted. I linked to a couple of other Modern Library reading blogs, both of which now appear to be defunct, so that's something to be proud of, I suppose!

...I reviewed Lord Jim. Gorgeous writing and some cinematic qualities didn't save this book from being a bit boring.

Perhaps best of all, though, I got a pair of orange Converse shoes like I'd been wanting forever.
