January, 2009 — Part 1 in a 12-part blog series.

1. 6 reasons why we didn't talk about the way Caroline Kennedy looks.

2. Going out without a hat does not make you as cold as going out without pants.

3. I kind of liked Twitter.

4. Random thoughts about "Gran Torino" lead to an important development.

5. "Naturally, I was interested. Interested in eeelection, which I took to be a way of e-voting for electric eels. Also screwing civility sounded hot, though I deplore the close proximity of screwing and electric eels."

6. You can't tell from the post, but this is all there is on the blog recounting the first date in a relationship that led, by August, to marriage.

7. "Wouldn't it be funny, Barack, if, after all of this, you wake up one morning, and you think: I hate my job?"

8. Ah! See what's on the iPhone? Meade sent that.

ADDED: This was important. Make that #9.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if #7 was one of the first things that went through Obama's mind when he found his vacation interrupted because of a crazy Nigerian who tried to blow up an aircraft on Christmas day.

You had a crush on Jimmy Carter?

You showed good sense going with Meade, instead.

I just found your blog, Ann, and I love it. (From a Madison WI expat living in Chicago.)

Had Althouse only substituted "Sarah Palin" for Barack, she'd be really prescient.

Revisited the post and comments about Gran Torino, because I finally saw it -- and absolutely loved it. (My only wince was when he falls at the end in a crucifixion posture. Not being a Christian, I'm embarrassed by what seems to me the vanity of equating a movie character with Christ -- Willem Dafoe in Platoon comes to mind. But perhaps if you're a Christian, the idea of imitatio Christi, aspiring to reenact Christ's sacrifice in your own small way, is perfectly legit.)
