So... I just realized that today (give or take a day; I'm not 100% sure) is the one-year anniversary of my joining the Herd. That's kind of a strange thing to think about. I've spent the last year
obsessing over a My Little Pony
cartoon. This time last year, I was bored out of my skull, sick of seeing pony avatars everywhere I went (even on a Godzilla forum, of all things. Thank you, Hayes and GTU), and looking for something to pass the time while waiting for season four of Clone Wars.
I wound up not watching most of Clone Wars
, because my entertainment priorities had been drastically re-ordered by the time it premiered.
Man... on the one hand, it feels like I've been a fan of this show forever. At the same time, it seems like yesterday when I begrudgingly decided to give the first episode a shot. I was home alone at the time, but I still locked all the doors so there'd be no chance my family would get home early and catch me watching it.
A year later, I've converted one of my brothers and gladly wear a Join The Herd
Yeah. So, it's been a hell of a year. I never would've expected to spend it like I did, but I certainly wouldn't trade it. I think I'll celebrate by re-watching the pilot episodes today, if I get a chance. Haven't seen them since November, anyway.
