2011: The Year of Vigor

Happy New Year! Really, I mean it. I plan on having a great year and I want you to have one as well.

How am I going to do it? Not exactly sure. 2010 did not meet expectations (or I didn't raise myself up to the bar I set). In any case, I'm optimistic in a way I don't recall last year. Full of Vim and Vigor. Or Moxie.

What will you do? I have a few suggestions. In 2011 I hope you will:

  • Write a novel
  • Publish a book
  • Have a complete stranger compliment your good looks
  • Find $20 in your pocket
  • Break a record or make history
  • Issue a proclomation
  • Dare to eat peach (or any other fruit)
  • Visit a library
  • Shout your barbaric Yawp!
  • Be at peace
  • Kick butt and take names
  • All of the above

Happy New Year!

Retro Costume Winners

Congrats to Lyn Gardner for her photo of herself dressed as William Morris! Also congrats to Laurina for the retro pic circa 1974 (via Facebook)! You both win a copy of Retro Spec: Tales of Fantasy and Nostalgia.

I'll be in touch to arrange for shipping of the book. Thanks for participating!

Retro Reminder

Hope you all had fun trick or treating. If you have a picture of yourself in a retro costume (or a retro-picture that evokes that time-gone-by) post it by this Sunday, November 7th. I'll pick my two favorite to give away a copy of Retro Spec: Tales of Fantasy and Nostalgia

As an example (and show of good faith for old photos), below is my yearbook photo, circa 1985, skinny leather tie and all:
