|Like last years.|
But for 2016!
It seemed like yesterday we were enjoying the A to Z Challenge, doesn't it? We read each other's blogs, commented on a few, welcomed new followers, and laughed and laughed and laughed. At my prom pictures.
|Yeah, this one is kinda horrifying, too.|
Well, wouldn't you know it, it's almost time for another go-round. This one, the seventh annual such blogfest, is called the 2016 A to Z Challenge (which, I would think, makes sense).
The brainchild of Arlee Bird, this will be the seventh (already covered) chance for us all to slave away for 26 days in April to provide the unsuspecting with riveting, educational, humorous, or revolting posts which circulate around the letters of the alphabet. The English alphabet. I have no idea about the Cyrillic alphabet. And you can just frikkin' forget about the Chinese alphabet.
|"Yeah, ha, ha, raff it up funny man. |
Soon we own your ass."
"But, golly, Al, doesn't April have 30 days?"
Well, I can see you paid attention in school. The reason that we're going with 26 posts is...well, just sign up at Blogging From A to Z Challenge and find out. I mean, I could tell you the rules here, but I'd just as soon post one of my favorite pictures.

What's not to love?
You can adopt a theme throughout the month of April or you can
just free ball it (ooh, that's an unfortunate term right there). I haven't made my mind up yet. Last year, I wrote 26 haikus. Great fun, but I want to do something different. In the past, I adopted a "History" theme (trust me, it's not like I wrote anything which could be used to take a History placement exam). I've also "winged it." This is a lot like I normally do business. Except I'm constrained to a specific letter for a specific day (e.g. 'A' for April 1st. And so on. I wouldn't know any more than that unless I wrote it down).
|"Nothing unfortunate there."|
|"Whatever he decides, I hope he includes us. |
Now, how 'bout I work on those glutes?"
Hurry now because space is limited*! There's already 809 sign-ups so add your name on the list. I'm there somewhere. You'd think I would have written my number down, but noooooo.
So go ahead and play the game. You'll get a chance to meet a lot of great people, some of whom may actually want to have anything to do with you. For instance, if you're reading this, you're already part of Penwasser Place. Well, lucky you!
*Yeah, that's a lie. Everyone is welcome. Hey, they let me in.
