Old Time, that greatest and longest established spinner of all!…. his factory is a secret place, his work is noiseless, and his hands are mutes.
This may be a somewhat obvious statement to those who have followed the blog or know me in real life, but I read a lot. When I was a kid, I was always the one in the corner with a book. I’d sneak them into church, not out of disrespect, but because-purely from a narrative standpoint-they almost always topped what I was going to hear. I had them in my textbooks in high school and college because, there, they ALWAYS topped what I was going to hear. I had a friend put it to me quite well once. I’d rather live in other realities, because I have no idea what to do with this one. That’s very true and remains so to this day. So, what to do about that? Sign up for Audible so that now even driving and walking let me read? Bully!
Killing Time milestones this week: The numbers dip hasn’t quite resolved itself, but we had a good enough week to push past 32k and 33k, so thanks for visiting so much. The Latest vs. Greatest feature seems to be quite popular from the numbers, so I’m going to have to start doing some research if I’m going to keep cranking them out once a week.
The most popular article of the week was a summary of what TV Shows Have Been Renewed or Canceled This Season Thus Far. We also had a change atop the all-time most viewed article. The mutant phenomenon that was The Lone Ranger Trailer #4 getting over 1200 hits and becoming my most-viewed article (despite my essentially stating how much I thought it would suck) has been eclipsed by thousands of yellow minions pushing my Despicable Me 2 Review to the top of the heap.
No new countries this week to visit. French Guiana, I’m honestly just passive aggressively hostile toward you right now. I don’t have the energy to engage in a long debate and to reiterate how border security along the Maroni River is shoddy so anyone in Suriname thinking of trying it….
