The Chronological Project

Ok, I've been meaning to do this for a while, but it took me a while to get it together. And, since I have a thousand things to do over the weekend that I've been procrastinating on, I figured this was as good a time as any to occupy the front page with it.

I've had dozens of comments in the past about how hard it is to try and go back & read The Project from the beginning, and it is a pain...I was going back through the other day, trying to find an old post, and it almost drove me up a wall.

So, what I've done is put the entire story (so far) in chronological order, omitting all the present-day ramblings & leaving just the timeline itself; if you wanna get the whole picture, you'll still have to go back through the archives. In other words, I've just made it that much easier to dwell on my past. And I just now realized it, but man...with all the words I've written on this stupid thing, I could've have started my own religion. Maybe I should; that's where the money is.

What's really funny is that you can track my listening habits over the last several months by reading the chapter titles. It makes for a fun trivia game, too...

Oh ya go. I'll add to this post as The Project grows & keep it linked off to the side.

It's not a religion, it's a freakin' novel. Wowie. Good work. (And thanks for taking care of that other thin. ;)

Wow, that must have taken forever doing that...

I found it most useful to just start at the beginning and slough through it all in order to catch up. It was a tough few days of pretending to look busy at work while I read your life, but I managed.

I'm glad we're in year 1... I'm catching up on other blogs that are 2+ years old and it's taking me WEEKS of determined slacking to get through.

It's not for everyone, that's for sure.

Ten years??? Mine goes back that far too, but I'm about done with the ex's. You are a busy guy!

Can't wait for the next "looking back" post! :)

I've thought (but never mentioned, I think) that perhaps when you're all done with this, you ought to send it off and see if you can sell it as a memoir... nothing says you have to attached your real name to it.

And if it's a memoir, you can apparently make stuff up and still rake in lots o' cash. So, the money's in religion and made up memoirs, which I always thought was called a novel, but hell...whatever works.

Glad I started early too. Damn that is a lot of chapters! I've been here a long time! At least this way you will have it more in order -- more like book format. Keep it coming!

I think this is the first time I've ever commented here, and I feel kind of bad that I'm going to nag you, but we're approaching almost a month since you've actually worked on THE PROJECT here. Time to get back to the healing maybe? ...and to satisfy our collective cravings?

not to mention the strain it puts on Dene and my relationship when she's late because she's been reading this blog.

Just wanted to point out that between Chapters 44 (Put the Load Right on Me)and 45 (Out of the Frying Pan) you left out the "Dishes are done" chapter:

Thanks for the project! It's always nice to know you're not the only one out there.

A month ago I was exactly feeling how you are feeling now, in pain, crying, heart broken, and then I found this site and I followed their instructions, I had my girlfriend come back to me in no time so fast !! I was so so happy and I'm still very happy, don't give up! I suggest you view the free videos that tell you what to do on
