See You April 1st



  Okay, that's it for now.  I'm going to take the next few days off to recharge my batteries (I know what you're thinking: "What do you mean, 'Recharge your batteries???  You've given us nothing but hideous reposts all frikkin' month!!!'").


  I know, I know, but I hope you at least somewhat enjoyed the late winter reruns.  Especially since you're in for 26 (well, actually, 25) brand new posts.  I've spared no expense in coming up with some great ideas. Well, I haven't spent a dime.  Because you can't put a price on brainpower.  And Blogger doesn't pay me.


  So, between now and the 1st, I'm going to make sure all is ready for the 2012 A-Z Challenge.


  And my underwear is pressed.  Because, really, you can never underestimate the power of starched drawers.


  I hope it will be worth your wait.


  See you on April Fool's Day!

  6. @Mynx: I hope you're right. The Southern Hemisphere gets mentioned at least twice.
    @Matthew: You get mentioned in the 'F' post, so I hope there's not TOO much clobberin'!
    @Nellie: Oooh, TV...well, there's always Netflix.
    @Eva: Or anything I write.
    @Pat: The 26th will be a repost on Easter (coincidentally, it will be for the letter 'E.' Go figure).

  8. Ohhhh, lucky you! ;-)
    Yep, that won't stop.
    The only problem (and you may have noticed) is that sometimes I duplicate on Facebook what's on my blog. Mainly, because most people on my FB account don't pop over to Penwasser Place.
    And I do so love to share this nonsense.

    1. i duplicate on fb and my blog some too. but the blog gets more than the fb account. maybe cuz i don't feel that i should share boob or poop stories on fb, but i'm very free with them on my blog.

    1. Oh, I just read my comment to you. It looks like I meant April 26th. I meant the 26th POST will not be new (as opposed to the other 25).
      I don't blame you if you're confused. I'm confused myself.

  15. Enjoy your break, we all need a little time off from writing. Sometimes our brains just doesn't want to think.

  16. "You can never underestimate the power of starched drawers." That's so funny! Enjoy your time off, Al. I bet you have lots of fun on April 1st, huh? Hmm, I need to think of some good April 1st jokes. Thanks for the reminder!

  23. My question to you - should you decide to answer it while you're on vacation, that is: Who inspired your sense of humor?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've wondered that, too. I think I got my sense of humor from my father, although (I would hope) much less cruder and definitely less narrow-minded. He wasn't above "pull-my-finger" jokes, though.
      Also, a lot of where my sense of humor comes from is where I grew up. Whether or not all the funny people live in the Northeast (clearly, they don't ), there is a certain humor style to growing up sixty miles away from New York.
      It may have something to do with the cold. Or the hookers and rats. Or rat hookers. I don't know.
