Blogiversary time has rolled around once again, and this year it coincides with Get on the Blandwagon! racking up more than 100,000 page views.

This is a momentous occasion. True, about 90,000 of those page views were mine, but I'm glad that 10,000 other people found a moment of interest in these pages. Or, alternately, that one person found 10,000 moments of interest... and also no doubt a realisation that he or she was squandering the precious gift of life.

People who haven't seen me in a while often ask me, "So what have you been up to recently?", a question which is guaranteed to produce a panicked, evasive expression and a horrible certainty that I've just been doing the same old things over and over again. However, checking back over the last twelve months of blog posts, I've discovered that I've actually had a lot of newness in my life. A new chair, a new computer, a new garden, a new car, a new The Flatmate, a new dishwasher, a new Giant Red Robot, and new... um... important utilities. So really it has been a year of change, up to and including this plonker person.

According to the Get on the Blandwagon! Modern Blogiversary Gifts List, the 4th blogiversary should be marked with gifts of anti-depressants. As such, I will gratefully accept all donations of Prozac, Diazepam and/or ice cream.

As one who has extensive experience with depression, I suggest a box of Lindt's Lindor Balls; a box with enough cocoa butter and vegetable oil to choke the arteries of a blue whale, and enough sugar to give you twitches so intense that you're diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome. Eat these at 8am.

Along with these drink a double macchiato, which will increase your heart rate to such a strength that your blood will blast your arteries clean again.

Continue ingestion every hour until you collapse through nervous exhaustion and sleep for the next week.

Then repeat.
