I'd like to think that over the busy holiday season my friends and family would have something better to do than "keep up with my blog".

I used to do a handwritten blog years ago (2000?) where the posts were actually done in my own handwriting, using a wacom tablet. But then I was like, 'what about blind people?' So I had a phone number you could call at the time where I had recordings of all my latest posts and comments. It was an awful lot like this.

For perkiness and old-fashioned simplicity, nothing beats fashioning a note from letters pasted from a magazine, tying it to a brick, and throwing it around a window.

It's always meme-worthy, and few people rarely say "meh" to it.

Okay, through a window. How's your egg-nog?

You've obviously never found yourself at the center of a Tootsie-Pop.

divabat, mad props for the title of this post. The "1" at the end of a lengthy batch of exclamation marks is a meme that will never get old.

You and your modern conveniences, nancy boy. I'm partial to smoke signals and hoof taps myself.

jonmc - you had horses? When I grew up, some old guy said he saw a horse, except it was part of something called a "cave painting". Of course, everyone knew caves and paintings were science fiction, so we didn't believe him...

No, I had hooves. My mom's part centaur. I try to keep quiet about it around here, since some of you sity folk don't approve of mixed marraiges.

When I grew up

you got to grow up? We had to stay the same size our entire lives other wise we'd use to much oxygen. Oxygen was scarce in those days. It's tough sending smoke signals as a toddler sixed 36-year-old, lemme tell ya.

loquacious: That was perfect.

jonmc: Hoofs? Luxury. Oh, we used to DREAM of having hoofs. We used to have floppy webbed feet, that could barely support us on solid land. And at least you got to BREATHE your oxygen. We had to suck it out of the water with gill slits in our neck.

I am reminded of a recent New Yorker cartoon where one dog is saying to another something to the effect of, "I think I'll give up blogging and go back to incessant pointless barking."

Ynoxas:

Ya'all had feet? Back in my day, we had flagella we waved around aimlessly. And oxygen? We wish we had oxygen. We had to be anaerobic! But WE LIKED IT THAT WAY!

Hey, I took a lot of heat when I was the first on my block to crawl up on the shore and breathe air. Now, not only is everybody doing it, but they've got all these fancy hooves and wings and shells and horns and some of them are even walking on two legs! I think they're calling it Walk 2.0.
