A Brief History of Entropy

>> Thursday, February 4, 2010

In my New Year's Resolutions I vowed to make a better effort to come up with original blog entries and not generate lists that refer back to earlier posts when I run out of ideas.

I'm telling you about this resolution because I want to assure you that, despite what you might think when you are done reading this, I have not broken this vow. No sir/ma'am, I have not. I have other blog ideas, sitting in an ideas folder. I'm doing a "retrospective" anyway.

You see, in the past few weeks I have had the good fortune to acquire a few (dare I say many?) new blog readers that check in at least sometimes. As I was reviewing some older posts recently, I realized that we have covered a lot of ground this past year with my battle against the forces of Entropy and Chaos. To be fair to those new to the blog, I figured we could do with a review.

I first met Entropy and Chaos ... I don't know. The day I was born, probably. Anyway, I first introduced them to my blog in My Battle Against the Forces of Entropy and Chaos.

In Chaos Footprint, I introduce my theory that Entropy and Chaos are using Manchurian Candidates to defeat us. I extrapolate on this theory in Who's a Secret Agent? and in Strange, Strange, Strange when I further explore the idea that I (gasp) may be just such a Manchurian Candidate.

Entropy and I are old, old friends, as shown by the practical joke Entropy played on me in this post.

Even in seemingly unrelated posts about unmated socks and stray pieces of tupperware, Entropy rears its head: It's More Than Unmatched Socks.

Of course, everything that interferes with my coffee comes from Entropy, as shown in this post, Descale, Descale, Descale.

I detail some of our full-on battles in Skirmishes and Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So Far Away.

In About That Entropy And Chaos Thing, I reveal that Entropy and retailers of children's toys are aligned in the battle against Order and Organization.

The Christmas Truce is the topic of Christmas Eve -- the Day Before The Truce (as if you couldn't have guessed that).

Finally, Entropy takes over my life (and my blog) completely in the back to back posts, What Happens When You Hit the Tipping Point and More from Entropy.

I hope you enjoyed this little history lesson. If not, I am sure that Entropy will find time to visit your house. Be sure and let me know and I'll pass the word along.
