Yay for Olives*

Well would you look at that? Thirty days, thirty-two posts. Can I get a "Whoo!"?

I kid, I kid. It really wasn't all that painful or notable. I mean, it's not like I cured cancer or anything... or even wrote a damn novel, for that matter.**

Anyway, the NaBloPoMo (let's have some fun with that one more time... HeyHoJoeBlow... MeSoDownLow... MarioCuomo***) challenge is complete, and now if you'll excuse me, I am going to go away and never post again for a long, long time. No, I'm not serious about that. Tomorrow is Friday, after all, and you know what that means: time to think of some inconsequential idea to enumerate in list form. You can't wait, can you? I aim to please, you know.

I actually think this posting-every-day thing was really good for me. I was even thinking for a while there that I should try to maintain the every-day schedule (or close to it) after November. But then week four came and I said, "Screw that. This is madness." They say it takes, what, 21 days to establish a new habit? It took me 21 days to realize it was a habit that very likely wasn't for me.

I am, however, going to try to stick to something resembling more regular posting. We shall see just how that goes.

Thank you to everyone who's stopped by via that NaBloPoMo randomizer thingie. My stats have never been higher, but I suspect they will go right back down again once that thing is in less constant use. Oh well; it was fun for a while. Thanks also to Crushing Krisis**** for considering me highlight-worthy within the short summary of 209 different "S" blogs. As I noted in the comments on that post, I am ridiculously amused that strangers on the Internet are pimping to get me a man. What a strange, strange world it's become. And I love it.


* For those of you who have better things to do than memorize everything I ever write but who are puzzled by this subject line nonetheless, go
here and here to shed some light.

** What about the rest of you?
Red? GG? How’d that go? Anything to report? (Sorry if I wasn’t supposed to ask about that; there's no shame in lacking follow-through, but we can all just look away now if you'd like.)

*** That one’s still my favorite. I don’t care if no one else is amused.

**** Who has done the unthinkable and actually checked out every single NaBloPoMo-registered blog. All 2,000-ish of them. Whew.

Excellent work! I hope your future blog output doesn't shrink too much - I'll miss ya.

I will miss your every day posts. But I will see you Saturday! Maybe I will bring a flask to the craft show to make GG proud of us.

Whoo! I gave up after 8 or 9 days, so I'm really impressed that you stuck it out. I hope you win something.

Thank you for the link! I didn't have much time in my whirlwind tour to read far back into your archives, but I certainly am looking forward to doing so over the weekend, and to keeping up with you in the future. Congrats on finishing!

Nice work, Stefanie. I'm proud of you.

Now, could you please write that olive post?
