A very special holiday time at the blog

December 20, 2009

Blog Guy, do you have anything special coming up in your blog for the holidays?

Do I!

Do you?

Yes, that’s what I meant by “Do I! “


Traditionally the end of the year is a time of lists and recognition, and I’m starting off tomorrow with the closely-watched Goofiest Photos of the Year announcement.

Then comes the Top Ten Blog Items of the Year as measured by reader page views, followed by my personal list of favorite posts for the year. And of course the annual Oddly Enough Blog staff photo, some thank-yous, etc.

donnatellaSo like in other words, retreads and leftovers that you can knock off pretty quickly, right?

Exactly. But there also will be plenty of new stuff as well, as I post unseemly items of questionable taste to earn a flurry of end-of-the-year page views from half-hammered bottom-feeders searching for sleaze.

Awesome, Blog Guy. I for one am looking forward to seeing you aim for the lowest common denominator.

Thanks, stranger. Yep, I won’t be able to look at myself in the mirror much for the the next couple of weeks, if you take my meaning. God bless us, every one!

Wow. She’s an advert for why you ought to accept the ageing process. Or demand all your pictures are air brushed.

Robert, I’d have taken you for a guy who doesn’t dig transvestites with more aesthetic (loosely used in this context) surgeries than Michael Jackson!

But then again, it does look like you’re calling out for the picture to be taken quickly so you can dash away and stand next to somebody nice.

I strongly suggest you screen more thoroughly who you let stand next to you in cocktail parties. Hey, I can understand the popularity and the fact that everyone wants to have their picture taken standing next to you, but I think there are limits you shouldn’t cross, don’t you?
