HNT - Happy First Anniversary

For a full year now, every Thursday bloggers around the world have been getting half-nekkid. When asked why, they point to a man in Helena, Montana who calls himself Osbasso.

This week, HNT, a "celebration of exposure" celebrates its first anniversary. I joined HNT a few weeks after spotting some folks that my buddy Pete Mitchell had been linking to who were part of one of the first waves of HNT. It appeared to be a neat concept so I thought that I'd give it a whirl.

My First HNT pic

My first HNT post was entitled "Naked Eyes" and appeared on October 27, 2005. In it I showed off my "spooky eyes" underwear. I've since shown different novelty underwear on several occasions, and have lots of great fun boxers to show off. But I've also used HNT for other fun experimental posts, some risque, some goofy, and some, like the Darth Tater serial adventure, a lot of fun to put together. (My entire HNT collection is linkable off a single page, created especially for the project where a few genius HNTers created a means for HNT folks to be part of the Rogue Festival)

There's an extraordinary family of HNT folks from around the world that I've met simply by participating in this weekly celebration. Some incredible, wonderful people. Their blog stories have made me laugh, made me cry, made me glad to have discovered them. I'm certainly glad for those friendships and thankful to Osbasso for starting it all and bringing people together.

Sorry, Os, I know you wanted folks to offer a little "celebratory" picture this week. But I've been working 65+ hour weeks lately, and half a dozen writing projects in the que and no time for celebrations just yet. So for HNT's first anniversary, I offer another "eye" pic that hopefully compliments my first HNT pic.

So, Happy Anniverary HNT! And here's looking at YOU, Os!
