29 Oct Holy Krakatoa! It’s So Shibumi!!
I mean, HOLY KRAKATOA tomorrow is going to be ONE WHOLE YEAR since I started my blog!!
But since I have a special post planned for tomorrow, I thought today I would share some of my favorites from the past year.
But first I have to get all mushy and say thanks for reading. This has been way more fun than I thought it would be, but without comments (really without WordPress site stats) to confirm that people are actually reading, I am sure I would have stopped long ago.
So first, as we wind down, I have to say that as much as I love shibumi, there really are times when Holy Krakatoa just fits the situation better. So I need to give a big shout out to Rena from the original search for a signature phrase post, for suggesting Holy Krakatoa. I don’t think I recognized its true genius at the time (although I did like it from the start). But what can I tell you? It just rolls off the tongue.
Holy Krakatoa really stands alone whereas something is so shibumi. Sometimes you need to live with a phrase, see it in action before you get the real, proper feel for it. And so it was with these two awesome signature phrases.
Wait, can I have two signature phrases? Um, yesss. This is my blog. I can do whatever I want.
OK, without further ado, here are my top 5 favorite posts:
The Tiger Has Roared (Ok, I was literally laughing out loud as I reread this. It’s completely random though.)
And of course the debate that blew my mind:
I’ve had fun revisiting a lot of my old posts–lots of wackiness, some decent advice, tons of great books, in my humble opinion.
I’ve got a special post planned for tomorrow, the actual one year anniversary, so be sure to check back then.
In the meantime, it’s been lots of fun. Thanks for making this such a SHIBUMI year!!
Which is your favorite? Tell me in the comments.
