I Blogged Myself

Welcome to the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational blog since Kermit left just a little bit of the swamp in his pants.

Merry Christmas To All!

Hey everyone,

I'm going to be out-of-commission for a week (or maybe longer), and although I may check my blog and leave comments on occasion, I'll have no time to leave any new posts. However, I wanted to end the year with a hearty cheer ("YAYYYYYYY!") and a special message to each and every single one of you.

Unfortunately, as I don't have all your addresses or phone numbers (or even names, most of you), I have decided to settle for providing each of you with a small message of love.* Again, since many of you pass by every so often and many of you don't even leave any comments to let me know you've been here, I have gone by my list of linked bloggers, over there on the right. I have also alphabetised the greetings, so you can skip to your own if you don't want to read them all.

* Love not included.

If you reckon you were left off this list unfairly, feel free to email me.** My email address is on the right hand side of this page as well, towards the top. Good luck to you.

** This doesn't include you, Mr Kahfarknarkle.

So anyway, in alphabetical order, here's a special Christmas message to you all, starting with "My Nasty Friends", and then moving on to "My Nice Friends":

Dear Tuppence, thanks for keeping an eye on our little under-age swearer.

I bet you get more comments on this blog than any of your others... you might even set a record!

Thank you for the message (its a bit accurate isn't it?!?) and Feliz Navidad to you and yours!

*switches off that bloody radio station which plays cheesy Christmas tunes*

big time

I fucking hate this word verification thing...

Especially when it's longer than my comment.

At Saturday, December 24, 2005 12:47:00 am, Blogger MelbourneGirl said...

why do i have to be after roguemaze?

i have been busy. oh so busy. but i love this post, and you have pipped me. to it. the post that is. i logged on tonight while the cheesecake is baking and the two-nut choc torte is a-cooling on the rack. i thought i would do much the same as you have here.

but i won't double up. see what i've done. and thanks to you too for the friendship. and i mean it.

as for the obsession. we need to talk. i have a different take on the neighbours ending, just haven't had time to comment. but head over to mine, i hope you get the chance, to see what i've been up to.

At Saturday, December 24, 2005 6:11:00 pm, Blogger Jobe said...

Cruel? What the fuck? I wasn't cruel until I read that post.

Everyone else gets something heart-felt and I get that.

Fuck you, man. Fuck you!

*runs off in tears*

Happy Christmas Bevis.

Have a fucking lovely holiday,
xx Anna

P.S. Adam, way to go you for correcting yourself in a comments thread. I thought only I did that.

At Sunday, December 25, 2005 5:32:00 pm, Blogger Chai said...

No probs... bevis...and Merry Xmas!! And Happy Festivus too, in case u celebrate that as well/instead.
More importantly, hope u get lots of cool pressies.

At Monday, December 26, 2005 10:58:00 pm, Blogger Steph said...

Merry christmas jobe/Bevis hehehehe!!

At Tuesday, December 27, 2005 11:07:00 am, Blogger Susanne said...

Thanks Bevis, Have a good one, and I will see you here in the new year. :)

At Tuesday, December 27, 2005 11:31:00 am, Blogger BEVIS said...

Thank you everyone for your best wishes.

(My apologies to Jobe for hurting his feelings. Hopefully he has had a good cry now and is feeling much better.)

Thank you to Thomasr for the link - I will amend ASAP. :)

And Magical_M, your prediction (although kind) fell a fair bit short of the mark. One post a few months ago garnered over 70 comments, so that's the record I have to beat.

Everyone else, your lovely words are very much appreciated.

Here's to a fantastic new year of bloggy-goodness!

You're welcome re: jigsaw. Merry Christmas!

At Wednesday, December 28, 2005 7:39:00 pm, Blogger Magical_M said...

Well all I can say is people are rude not to have thanked you.

Its like the whole "thank you letters for gifts" thing which has sadly fallen by the wayside in these technological times... you think it would have improved it seeing as you can usually get away with sending an email thank you.

Rude I call it.

At Thursday, December 29, 2005 2:30:00 am, Blogger Quirkie said...

Not rude! Not rude! Just been on holiday. Thanks for the thought, Bevis, however misguided :) E-you in the New Year.

At Thursday, December 29, 2005 10:02:00 am, Blogger LadyCracker said...

Thanks Bevis! - and for you a fine new year.
