All of these impressive stats mean that it’s also the perfect time to announce that I’m taking a break for the holidays. Readership is usually down around Christmas / New Year’s and if I wanted to tell stories into a void, I’d just talk to myself (which I do anyway but which requires way less typing).
If I were a better American, I’d post again on January 2. If I were a better Spaniard, I wouldn’t post until well after January 7th. Since I’m just me, the ass between both worlds, I’m splitting the difference and will begin the new year with new things on Monday January 6.
In the meantime, here are some of my favorite posts that you might have missed or would like to revisit. (If you’re a regular reader, perhaps you’d care to nominate a favorite and I’ll link to it too.)
→ Word Mystery: bleach. This one got lost during one of my no-Internet time periods, but I like it.
→ My sister likes yogurt (or whatever the hell it’s called).
→ Read scenes from my in-progress Spanish screenplay about how horrible Spanish people are.
And if you’re feeling festive, here are some holiday thoughts from the Way Back Machine. Remember to keep your holidays shitty!
→ My favorite scatological Catalan holiday tradition.
→ Tonto, Tarzan and Frankenstein wish you a happy holiday season.
Finally, since I started doing this as a joke, here’s my official happy dance. (Click to hear the song, though you really don’t want to hear the song.)
