Friday Facts- May 13, 2011-First Anniversary

Today is the one year anniversary of this weekly feature called Friday Facts.  Back on August 13, 2010, I talked about the fear of Friday the 13th, triskaidekaphobia,  so you can refer back to that post on the Friday Facts page if you’re curious and I’ll talk about something else today instead.

The traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper or plastic and the modern choice is a clock.  If you’re thinking about getting me a gift to celebrate, I have a crap-ton of paper already. It seems like I have more paper than ever. The Federal court system here went paperless a number of years ago and all pleadings are filed electronically but attorneys are now the custodians of original documents so, there you go, more paper.  I could probably make a formal gown out of the paper we waste in my office every day.

As to plastic, please don’t get me that either. Most of it stays in landfills for eons.  I also have a bunch of those plastic cups that you pick up in restaurants and my spouse and kids love to drink out of them. I am a glass and crystal kind of girl myself.

As to the clock idea, time passes so fast anyway, who wants to watch a clock?  so, in other words, no gifts for me this anniversary. 

Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed these Friday Facts for the last year and keep coming back to see what I’m doing here every week.  It’s been fun for me to think about what would be good to share.  Peace out!


  1. It’s been an interesting year. I always look forward to what you’ll be sharing on your Firday Facts. No plastic, paper or clocks just nice green e-wishes for you on this first anniversary.

  2. Has it only been a year? It seems like you’ve been sharing your knowledge for longer than that! I love Friday Facts, so keep them coming, sha!

  3. I’m new to Friday facts, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read. Happy anniversary! 🙂

  4. I’m new too but love the different themes you run. Wow, you might be a hard lady to buy for. You forgot to mention that gift cards and money fall in the paper, plastic realm so guess its only stuff in those things that you have to keep. I have a friends that says “If I can’t eat it or wear it, don’t give it to me.” That was her attempt to eliminate the clutter of collectibles.

    • I LOVE IT, Lavada- never thought of the gift card and cash thing- Yep. I’m all about fungible goods. : )

  5. I found you mid-year and I’ve enjoyed every post! Keep it going. 🙂
