Happy Blog-o-versary to me!

A glimpse back at the archives tells me that I started this here little blog on 12 January 2006. Three years ago! My blog has apparently past the terrible twos and is into the even terribler (if my friends with small children are to be believed) threes : )

As this date coincides with my return to the day job, I'm not sure my brain is up to coming up with any deep and meaningful posts on the last three years or blogging in general so instead I'm going with Mel's meme of threes (feel free to join in - doesn't have to be your top three, just three of your favourites):

For people who live on opposite sides of the globe, we have a lot in common. Especially celluloid rogues and Bujold's Memory (I re-read it frequently as a self-indulgence.)

Loved the random facts! Here are 3 in return: I collect aliens, I've had two exchange students from Australia, and I love the constellation Orion.
