Welcome to ISWYS Christmas Edition, 2008! Can I get a "Woo-to-the-Hoo?!"
Bi'ness: Please be sure to link directly to your video post below so that viewers go to your video and not to your shopping list or New Year's resolutions list or something like that, although I'm sure your resolutions are interesting and completely rational and attainable, as all resolutions always are. On the day you make them.
However, if you vlogged your resolutions, I think that was a great idea because you will be memorable to us, and we will check back with you in 12 weeks or so to see how you're doing with those promises that you made before the world. Just another service I provide: unsolicited accountability. You're welcome.
To those of you reprising your roles in your stunning videos from September 30: I cannot tell you how excited I am to see you again! You are veterans now, captivating Vlog-land ingenues all of you, well, except for Greg, who cannot strictly speaking be an ingenue, so I'll just call him a "heroic luminary for our troubled times" instead. To those of you debuting today: I cannot tell you how excited I am to "meet" you! Break a leg, etc., etc.
So here is my video, complete with bloopers at the end, expertly edited by my wonderful spouse, Jorge, who worked many hours to sync up our new computer with our older camera. He is the man. Oh, I could kiss him. (That will be funny in a minute or two.)
You will notice about three seconds of our kids in a van singing Dexy's Midnight Runners' "Come on Eileen" (1982) on our way back from summer vacation, but hey, we meant that to be there. Think of it as a musical interlude. OH, Just go with it, OK?
