A big thank you to my supporters
This is a MAJOR thank you to all my supporters out there over the past year. I really couldn’t have done it without you. Whether you are people I know – friends, family, co-workers, or friends of friends of friends. Or you’re people I’ve never met who’ve found the blog somehow and are entertained by it.
Each of you have a role in the success of this past year. Some of you have helped out – held a camera, took me to a pottery class, forced me to practice stand-up comedy (this is still going to happen – I promise), went on a date with me, ate weird food, held me up on an escalator when I was too tired to keep my eyes open. Some of you have been put into the blog without you knowing ahead of time and have laughed about it. Some of you have commented, or in some cases debated, to add more depth to the topic of the day. Some of you I’ve been hurt by and some I have hurt (and I’m deeply sorry to those people). Some have made me smile and feel so loved. Some of you have followed along my journey and each “view” that I see on my blog encourages me even more.
My mother will probably kill me for this photo, but as she’s on holiday right now, I won’t hear it right away. This is the look she gives me when she ends up in the blog – again. Probably the same look the Jackass** parents give their kids when they involve them in a prank! Love you, mom!
** I talked about falling down the rabbit hole of research the other day and here’s a perfect example. While looking up Jackass online I came across this:
A Montana man named Jack Ass has sued MTV’s parent company, accusing the music channel of “plagiarizing” and “defaming” his good name in connection with the show “Jackass.”
The 44-year-old Ass, who legally changed his name from Bob Craft in 1997, is seeking at least $10 million from Viacom, which Ass contends is “liable for injury to a reputation I have built and defamation of character I have created.” (thesmokinggun.com)
There are some interesting people in our world. (Apparently he changed his name to raise awareness for drunk driving, after his brother and friend were killed in a vehicle accident. )
Tomorrow is my last post of the project, but don’t fear, I will still be updating the blog at least once weekly, plus you’ll have the book to look forward to!
