Oh yes, two, 2 weeks from today! If you are pulled in as many ways as I am these next two weeks, you're feeling the pressure of yet another activity and don't know if "I See What You're Saying, Christmas Edition," is worth the time and effort.
Are you kidding me?
That's like asking if it was worth it to Mr. Starbucks to invent coffee!
How soon you forget the great miasma of seeing your completed video. ["Miasma" actually means "theory of disease" or "great vaporous emanation," but I couldn't think of another word that sounded better in the moment, so "miasma" it was, because, as we all know, everything is relative now.]
Remember the hilarity that ensued when we exposed our most embarrassing moments and alienated ourselves from our families and magically gained 10 lbs in ONE post?! Remember the jocularity of how it took us 200 tries to say "Hi!" just the right way--not too cute, but not too boring, but not fakey?!
Crazy-fun times, I tell ya!
Now, I KNOW that you had a good time because you told me. And I've seen several comments elsewhere wherein a participant actually encouraged a hesitant blogger to join in the fun next time, with the hesitant blogger promising to do so next time. Which would be this time.
So, if you stood with your toes hanging off the diving board but couldn't make yourself take the plunge before, here is your chance to prove that you've got the chutzpah and the janglies to do this. [I don't really know what I just said, either.]
Yes, this PSA is for you.
You know you want to do this. And you know that if you did this before and are considering bailing now, you will regret it December 30 when you see all of the links and realize the blow-out party you're missing.
It'll be like you're standing outside in the snow peering in through frosted paned window at a slumber party for cool, fun girls and you're just out there with Paula Abdul in no man's land, lonely and confused. *EDIT* That last sentence does not apply to my two male readers, who should not even be imagining peering into windows for any reason whatsoever, even if they're cleaning the glass, but I still hope they participate, nevertheless.*
In conclusion, I just want to say that perhaps you are scared that I will reprise my epic length video which rivaled "Shogun" (1980) for duration. Not to worry; I will keep mine at 2 minutes, max. Just long enough to cause my kids to re-unify in their intention to put me away quietly.
So, fire-up for ISWYS Christmas Edition, and let the miasma begin!
