Back to this lists! This is my traditional first list after Advent list; it pays homage to the first list of ten things I ever did, way back on March 3, 2004. Looking back through the archives, I see that the only year I didn't post a variation on this list was 2005; when I posted a list of ten Simpsons episodes mentioned in the footnotes of Planet Simpson: How a Cartoon Masterpiece Defined a Generation.
(False. January 6, 2006 was a Saturday, so I posted a rare prose entry in my Poet's Corner feature, "Long Sentence" by Michael Kinsley. January 7, 2007 was a Sunday, so I posted a work of art, an illuminated manuscript page depicting the Annunciation from the collection of the Getty Museum in L.A. At first I thought maybe it was a leftover work from that's years Advent project, but 2006 was a poetry year. Just a coincidence I happened to post a work that would have been right at home in an Advent art project, I guess. I have a vague thought that it may have been prompted by something I read around that time about an exhibit of illuminated manuscripts at the Getty. This one, perhaps?)
January 7, 2004, was before I started posting daily lists, but coincidentally I did post a list that day, of "seven random thoughts", including my idea for a collectible card game based on American Girl dolls, in which attacks were psychological instead of physical. Quoth me: "For example, Molly would attack by throwing a tea party and not inviting Kaya, and Samantha would attack by calling Felicity a slut behind her back." I still think this is a good idea.
