Top Ten Posts of 2010

Remember that time I made a huge, honkin’ deal about how I don’t post on weekends? Welp. Here we are.

So guess what. It’s my blog’s second birthday today! (These little blogs grow up so fast, don’t they?)

{Nom, nom, nom}

AND it’s basically the end of the year! Which means it’s time for another one of these.


10. The Lemon Pledge – I’m glad my suffering wasn’t for naught.
9. A little something in the morning – My Dunkin boyfriend isn’t the only one who likes me!
8. Monsters Inc. – Who doesn’t love a Me Monster?
7. Hunger thoughts – Apparently my starvation was fascinating.
6. Nobody likes you when you’re 23 – Except you guys, of course.
5. Signed, sealed, delivered – Proof blogger swaps are a good idea.
4. Can’t sleep; won’t sleep – Still can’t do this.
3. So young, so naive. – Everyone does this. EVERYONE.
2. What I did on my summer vacation – You can probably guess why this is my favorite post.

AND, the number one most looked at post of the past year IS…

1. Narwhals. Seriously. – ‘Nuf said.

But seriously. I get at least ten random views a DAY from people searching something to do with narwhals in Google. EVERYONE LOVES THEM.

Sorry for all the caps. Nostalgia gets me excited.

So there you have it! I want to thank everyone who takes the time to read this silly thing. It wouldn’t be near as much fun without you all.

To the new year, new beginnings, and narwhals!


Working for the weekend

Well folks, it’s that time of year again. Which means my weekend starts tomorrow. Which means you’ll have to last three days without a post instead of the standard two. (Here’s where I’d normally make a self-deprecating “I know, you’re inconsolable” joke, but it occurs to me that I’ve done that a few times already. Suffice to say I realize this announcement doesn’t ruin your day.)

I recently explained to my friend Bryan that I have a policy about not posting on weekends. (Well, aside from the occasional Out of Context quote. You’ve gotta get that stuff down while it’s fresh.) He thought it was amusing, which I suppose it sort of is. After all, I’m not getting paid here. I don’t have deadlines, except the ones I impose on myself. I could start a “no posts on every day except Wednesday” policy if I really wanted to.

But I guess it never occurred to me that my policy was funny until then. I mean, I update my blog almost every week day. I have a pretty loyal following of readers (and even a few I don’t know! Progress!). And if I can be a Me Monster for a second, I break 200 views a day with a fair amount of regularity now. (300 is the goal for 2011. I’m looking at you, casual readership.)

So maybe the policy is silly. But you never know how things will turn out. And having set days I don’t blog reinforces the unspoken rule that I should write the other days.

I know, you’re all eternally grateful.
