Default '99 Camry, 115K miles, does not start on first attempt

Hello all,

My '99 Camry with 115,000 miles is doing this for the first time in its
life - DOES NOT START on first attempt. It appears to start and then
dies immediately. The second attempt will fire it right up and then no
problem in driving at all. I have never seen this behaviour even in
peak Northeast winters, it used to start very first click. The original
battery is replaced after 7 years of service, a year ago with new
DIEHARD GOLD from sears.

Before I go to dealer and unload my wallet, I want to know what can I
check/repair myself. The spark plugs are new, I replaced them about 2
months ago. I can try cleaning throttle body, put some injector cleaner
in gas tank etc.
