A Gift to my Readers


Good morning. (Or afternoon or evening.) Whichever applies.

This post is in the form of a gift to any and every person who reads, has occasionally read, or might ever have cause to read my blog. Please know that I make this offer freely, out of the goodness of my heart and with no expectation of reward, simply because I wish to give you, my esteemed friends and/or friends-in-the-making, something of immense and lasting value. (Also because I happen to be a bona fide angel walking blithely upon this earth in the guise of a short, round, and rather unexceptional-looking woman.) Okay, maybe not an angel, exactly. Let's go with something along the line of a wise, warm, and wonderfully giving entity, but a little less on the exalted side. A good witch, perhaps. Yes, I like that.

Be that as it may, with all the formalities, revelations, and explanations aside, I am ready to present you with the gift to end all gifts...the prize that keeps on giving...un petit cadeau and piece de resistance for which you are likely to thank me tirelessly every day of your life (or at least till the end of summer). And even if you don't bother to thank me...or even to remember my largesse on a conscious level...you will most assuredly wear my name emblazoned in giant red letters across your subconscious mind until the day you die. I'm quite certain of that. In fact, I'm counting on it.

So here it is. No, really. It's coming. Right now. This very minute.


wait for it


So You Think You Can Dance. Wednesday nights. Fox network.

You're welcome.

;)

PS. The tone is tongue-in-cheek, but the gift is real. You'll love it.

PPS. THE LAKERS WON!

I still can't get into that one. What's my problem? Don't answer that.

Amy said...

Angel? I think so.
I think I am in love with any dance show. Sadly I can't ever remember that it is on, so miss it every time.
What a great gift!

Will I ever have time to watch TV again? Tell me so because I am missing a whole world out there! :)
Seriously, I have caught an episode or two over the past couple of years and they have always been super entertaining. Makes me want to get up and dance! ;)

Karen Sue said...

Thanks for the gift!! And for recognizing the desparate need for a vacation! We have had a rough past 4 months+ with some MAJOR church issues and sometimes you just need to be gone for a while from everything in your normal life!!

Jackie said...

I love you. I love SYTYCD. I love this post.
But You more.

Darlene said...

I couldn't agree with you more. It is my favorite show and I wouldn't miss it for anything. I do believe that this year is the best so far...so many great dancers that it may be hard to pick a winner. However, I do think that Alex will be the ultimate winner. I do have a couple of other favorites though. Jose has such a raw talent but I do think that Rob is a dark horse. The guys were really stronger than the girls this year, but they are all really good.

Jenny said...

You are too funny!!!

Love the post!

Amelia said...

Does your gift include a free hook-up of my antennae? I've lived in this house for two years and I can't figure it out, so I've gone without ANY TV...and the only thing I have really missed is American Idol & SYTYCD. I've heard it's gone downhill, but I wouldn't know since I CAN'T WATCH IT!

Hi, by the way. Nice blog! I wish I was a good writer like you! I'm Amelia & I'm following Cjane around (like a puppy).
