Submit to Reader Appreciation Week!
Here’s a trifecta of photographic vanity: Me, my kitten, my merchandise. Thank you, thank you very much.
But enough about me. Let’s talk about you. My logs tell me that a few thousand of you drop by each day, which I think is darned nice of you all. Thank you for making me part of your work avoidance routine. Normally in this space I prattle on about whatever it is I feel like prattling on about (hence the name), but I thought that for a refreshing change of pace for all of us, and to recognize the fact that it’s my readers who have made me what I am today (i.e., some guy in a small room in Ohio, typing out missives to people he doesn’t even know), for the next week I’d prattle on about whatever it is you want me to prattle on about.
That’s right, for the next week, I’m taking requests. If you ever wanted to know what I thought about any topic you might think of, now’s an excellent time to ask it: I’ll be posting answers as new “Whatever” entries. Any topic, general or personal, is up for grabs, although sometimes (probably as regards personal questions) the answer might be “none of your damn business, bub.” But for the most part I’ll be forthcoming and full of prattle-osity about the topic of your choosing. Serious or silly, thought provoking or maddeningly random, whatever topic you want. I’m here to perform like a monkey just for you.
So go on, ask me anything. Just drop it in the comment thread for this entry or send it in e-mail. The more requests I get the less work — er, that is, the more fun — it will be for me! Thanks in advance for playing.
(In case you’re wondering: I’ll start writing reader request entries on Monday.)
