Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the first time I linked to TAY! It was a cold January morning and I had nothing to do at work that day. I was scrolling through Kotaku as I was prone to do during my free time and I noticed the daily Kotaku round-up of TAY articles for the first time because a certain Tentacruel caught my eye.

But I didn't become a TAYer then... No not yet. I forgot TAY was a thing shortly after since I didn't realize exactly what it was at the time. It wasn't until late February that I started lurking here in this wonderful place and I didn't comment until mid March! When that anniversary rolls around in two months I will write something but in the meantime let's discuss some TAY memories!
