Open Thread, “Happy Birthday, Open Thread!” Edition

It’s right about the anniversary of the Open Thread, since we missed a month or two when Open Thread love dipped to nearly none. Lately, the love has been back. So: Happy birthday, Open Thread.

We’ll do this year what we did in the first, because a lot has changed in the world since then.

Tell me: Who are you? If you wanna keep your name all private, that’s cool — I just want to know more about who’s out there and what they do when they’re not coming around here. Job? Age? Town? Favorite boxer? Other interests besides watching people punch each other? Whatever else you think we need to know?

After this month’s [censored] music pick — GO. Go go go! And then, when you’re done making acquaintance, start talking about whatever the heck is on your mind. (Although maybe for comity’s sake, we should avoid Andre Dirrell-Arthur Abraham.)
