Big News!

Eee! I’m so excited! Something really awesome has happened, but it’s not quite ready to be revealed just yet. There’ll be more details on Monday, so don’t touch that dial!

Hope you’re all staying cool in this heat!


We Interrupt this Program…

I’m not going to have internet access tomorrow or Sunday, so I’m not going to be able to finish the Nostalgiathon. Also, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m really just not feeling it this year. Sorry. Thanks for reading, though. Maybe next year will be better.

Nostalgiathon 2009 Starts Later Today!

I was supposed to kick things off yesterday, but I ended up spending most of the day at church and with friends, which was admittedly more fun than writing.

But don’t worry, I’m still going to do this thing– I even acquired a bit of writing material today. So be on the lookout later this evening! (That’s assuming anyone is still reading this at all.)

Special Announcement!

I am happy to announce that I’ve decided to celebrate this blog’s second anniversary much the same way that I did the first:


That’s right, unless elephants stampede through my apartment (or something equally unlikely happens), July 12-18 will be devoted to Nostalgiathon 2009! I hope you’ll all drop in again this year, since last year was tons of fun and I’m really looking forward to it. Tell all your nostalgia-loving friends!

And in the meantime, check out Nostalgiathon 2008 if you haven’t already!

Well, NJ’s going on hiatus for a while. How long? I don’t know. Probably until I get time/inspiration to write about old crap. I’ll still be around checking people’s blogs and commenting– I’m not disappearing from the internet. I just won’t be writing in this particular blog.

Explanation and Apology

I woke up this morning and realized that I didn’t post yesterday.

Yesterday afternoon, I went to see The Dark Knight (EXCELLENT film) with Daymon, and after that, got sick. I ended up going to bed early, completely forgetting about the Nostalgiathon.

And later this afternoon, we’re going to a friend’s house, as has been planned for a week now. So I don’t yet know if I can squeeze a post in today or not, but I will be thinking about it.

Also, since Sunday is the worst day for views, I’m going to skip Sunday and finish this thing up on Monday instead. And like I said, if I make seven posts by the end of this thing, I do. If I don’t, I don’t. I’m sure everybody here understands that life happens.

However, I would like to try doing this again sometime. I’ve gotten a lot of views and some new readers, which makes me feel awesome even though I’ve been posting late and skipping days and shit. Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting.

ETA: Oh yeah, I’m gonna stop moderating comments because I have 26 emails sitting in my inbox right now. XD

Rain Check

Okay, I’m sorry, guys, but I just really, really, really don’t feel like writing that post today. Sorry x100.

But I tell you what. Instead of skipping today entirely, I’ll just post twice tomorrow. Deal? Deal.
