We Interrupt Our Program
Dear followers (or people who've inadvertently stumbled on this blog looking for porn.),
This will be my last post (I hope at least a couple of you-and my mom-are numb with dread that I'm disappearing) until April 1st (really, April Fools Day). Penwasser Place is going to shut down for a week to prepare for the A-Z Blogging Challenge hosted by Arlee Bird, he of the Tossing It Out blog. http://tossingitout.blogspot.com
The reason I'm taking a week "off" is so that I may prepare for what will be an arduous effort as I endeavor to submit a new post each day from April 1st until the 26th. Each post will center around a letter from the alphabet (sorry, English only. I have no clue about Cyrillic, Mandarin, Hindi, Farsi, Hebrew, Martian, Esperanto, Heiroglyphics, Polynesian, Alpha-Bits, or New Jersey). 26 letters, 26 days. Pretty clever, huh? And the nuns never thought I'd remember all the letters of the alphabet.
For the next week, I'm going to start writing posts in preparation for almost a month worth of mindless rambling. To help keep me on track, I'm going to take advantage of Blogger's delayed posting feature. This way, I can write and post something for a future date. Obviously, I won't be able to write 26 posts in one week (I'm just one little man!), but it will certainly help get me going (sort of like a blogging laxative). Hopefully, I won't post something about somebody on April 15th who dies on April 14th.
The A-Z challenge allows me to post just about anything. Essays, stories, poems, random thoughts, menus for beef jerky, everything is fair game. Of course, what this means is that I won't be able to break some of my posts up (like I am wont to do) to help you slog through them (and give me three days worth of posts for only one topic), unless I can cleverly come up with the next letter in the series being part of part II of the post. Confused? I'm sure you are. I know I am.
So, look for the grand reopening of Penwasser Place on April 1st.
I'm looking forward to seeing you back.
(Of course, I'll still be looking at your blogs-so keep a light on for me, ok?)
