New DAILY series for December: "31 Holi-Days"

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  Well, at least some of the time, and that's what this new, daily feature here on Turned on Its Ear will be taking a look at beginning tomorrow, December 1st.  I've always been of two minds about the holidays: on the one hand, I'm a true sucker for friends, family, food and presents, and the absolute magic that you can smell on the Manhattan air this time of year.  On the other hand, I'm just as big a fan of the irreverent and the absurd in December as I am throughout the rest of the year.  Accordingly, this series should be all over the place in a good way: expect to unwrap as many Hallmark moments as Nelson Muntz-style point-and-laughs, as well as some posts that have a nice mixture of both.

The series will also be completely free-form.  Posts will likely range from photos with one-line captions on the spartan end of the spectrum to lengthy stories/rants on the more verbose side of things.  It's my Christmas (Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, substitute as appropriate) gift to you all, dear readers: new content every day from now until 2012.  It's also part of my celebration of the spirit of the season...

...and a good excuse for me to shoot my mouth off at the Holidays.


  1. Here here! Bring it on. Perhaps have a contest where readers send in their most favorite/least favorite holiday moments? (I'm thinking about my fifteen years in retail...good and bad!)

    Just a thought...

    Love you!


  2. The contest idea isn't a bad one, darlin'. Maybe in the week between Christmas and New Years. We'll see how it all shakes out.

    6 is a robot!
