NaBloPoMo Roundup

Folks. We did it. You may now breathe a sigh of relief for either having survived it without missing a day's post, or because you can't wait until all these lunatics get back to posting real stuff, not the claptrap that they've been exuding for the last 29 days.

In honour of me nearly officially making it through (until I hit "Publish Post", that is) I've decided to summarize five of my favourite nablopomoers' latest-posts in one sentence each, and five given to me from the NaBloPoMo randomizer. It's the NaBloReduction, people.

1. Brianna and friend argue the ins and outs of clothing, marriage, divorce, fishnets after childbirth, and how association with wealthy hotel heiresses causes crotch flashing.

2. Sween laments a crunchy floor, but perhaps more than that he appreciates a timely photo op.

3. Sassy is goddamn tired of everybody completely ignoring the spirit of the holidays, which is WOULD YOU PLEASE LET ME RUN MY OWN F**CKING LIFE people?!

4. Sadie posted a youtube link most recently, but previously could not wait to go out with a girlfriend and torture boy-kind with her flirty but well-intentioned behaviour.

5. Chirky is suffering from public servantitis, a condition wherein everybody has work to do, but refuses to do it either alone, efficiently, or quickly.

From the Radomizer:

6. Celebration abounds at Corgifeathers, where self-congratulation in vanquishing NaBloPoMo and in realising that Billy Idol and Mark Twain celebrate the same day of birth (and now I have Dora in my head, thankyouverymuch.)

7. Phenix86 posted plentiful paraphrased, perfectly poignant P-words.

8. Today (yesterday) pseudostoops acknowledges that matrimonial chemistry can be baffling.

9. MLE half-finishes a list of 100 things on day 29, reflecting on such things as speeding through school, love of only the cutest bugs, calorie counting, American Children's literature, scary hobbits, romping through Europe, and poor, poor, oh so very poor handwriting.

10. Lia recounts her favourites of Christmas-passed while delving into the dichotomies of personal enjoyment, big Italian families, and the intergenerational nature of holiday traditions (and associated dysfunctions requiring therapy).


So... that's it? NaBloPoMo is over?

Wow. That was kinda fun.

Next year, NaBloPoMo meets Movember. Expect some scraggly posts and some well thought out facial hair.

Yay, you did it!! I missed the one day (to the puking) and then bombed over Thanksgiving. Oh well, I still blogged more this month than I have in SEVERAL months, so...I did accomplish something at least. Thanks for the plug!

Thanks for the shout and many congrats back atcha! If Dora isn't in your head you probably aren't really the parent of a toddler.
Hope the lungs are better today. Consider using medicinal pot--no matter what Dr. Prig says.

Congrats on finishing. I can only imagine how difficult it was to find cogent posts near the end of the month. I would have been relagated to "what I am wearing and eating today" posts by day 15.

Whee, thanks everyone. I'm kinda happy it's over, but I've also got renewed verve to post more from now on.

Corgimom: Dora's out of vogue at the moment, though with all the sick-days lately, it's come back into rotation on the telly.
