Seven Years!? It Only Seems Like Nine!

It's a very happy 7th birthday to us! No, not US magazine, which only seems as though it were written by seven year olds. As of January 20th, the Dictionary of Unfortunate Ideas is seven years old.

The what you say? All right, I realize we've been pretty lax around here lately and 2011 was a quiet year for us. However, we're not out of business yet, assuming you think of this as a business. We've approached it more or less as a highly experimental effort in wasting people's time, just like network television!

So, just like on a network television show that's lasted seven years, I thought it would be a good time to reminisce about some of the more memorable moments in our illustrious history, resulting in many wavy, filtered flashbacks and sudden jarring, yet jolly cutaways to past moments of mirthful mayhem. Think of this as our clip show, only we don't actually have that many clips, as we mostly do written stuff.*

Why some of these moments seem like they only happened yesterday, or would've if we'd posted anything yesterday...

Good times, good times, and there's much more where that came from (just peruse the "Best of" list if you doubt me). Who knows what will happen in the next seven years, provided those wacky Mayans weren't on to something?

* Yes, yes, I know we do a best of post, and that will turn up in a few days. Just hush your belly-aching and play along, will you?
** In Estonia, French Guiana, and parts of Poughkeepsie.
