December 24, 2008
So, I was midway through writing this serious little piece about the never-ending and ever-escalating traditionalism/”evolution” debate when I realized, jeez, no one wants to hear about that sort of thing on December 24th. I mean, I don’t. Christmastime is Chill Time in the Milliken household.
So let’s just have some fun. Some of you will remember something called Show & Tell from grade school. Each person just comes up to the front of the class and shares something he or she thinks is rad. It’s fun and easy, and you don’t have to study for it. And everyone’s input is special. It’s great.
I’m thinking the Internet version can work pretty much the same. Just comment with something you think might interest us or touch us or give us a laugh or something, or that you just think is cool. I’m going to leave it completely open-ended, but you do get bonus points if it somehow involves country music. Here are a few ideas to get you going:
- Mention a cool present you’re getting someone for the holidays.
- Share a cool YouTube video or link (fun tip: you can embed videos directly into your comments by simply posting the video’s URL with a ‘v’ after the ‘http’, like so: httpv://www.youtube.com/blahblahblahblahblah).
- Perpetuate (by way of lovingly and reverently ripping off) the awesome “turn a country song into a haiku” idea popularized by The 9513 here and originated by Chris N. here.
The only reason
He stopped loving her today
Is that he is dead
Just go crazy, y’all. And of course, Merry Christmas Eve!
