For the entire month of December, I’ve decided to challenge myself to post one story a day. Of course that challenge—#lwsblogchallenge as we’ll call it henceforth and forevermore—starts right now on Dec. 1 and of course today on Dec. 1, I find myself on my couch, 11-pound dog sitting atpop my forehead, an ever-present sniffle tickling my nostrils, and a general sense of ickiness scuttling across every inch of me, brought about by a nasty sort of cold-ish thing. Alas, my in-depth Gilmore Girls review planned for today will have to be published tomorrow and instead, to kick off the #lwsblogchallenge, I invite you to explore some posts I’ve written over the past few weeks that I find particularly weird, interesting, curious and nonsensical (sometimes though not always in that order). 
P.S. If you’re a blogger reading this, feel free to join the one-a-day challenge and tag your December posts with #lwsblogchallenge so we can be in this together. There’s nothing I love more than the solidarity of super-cool creatives just doin’ their thang.
Anyhoo, some links for your reading pleasure:
