A Meta Blog of Sorts


RedLeafWDropsNo1, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

I'm about to celebrate a unique moment in "blog history" (well, at least the history of Carol's Little World.) For the first time since 2005, I'm about to post more than two hundred and thirty six posts in a single year. This doesn't sound very eventful, and it really isn't, but I thought I might talk about it a little bit anyway.

I've yapped a lot this year. I've yapped and yapped and, well, you get the picture. It's been a busy year. I've done a lot. Did a lot of shows, dabbled in new media, made a lot of new connections, changed templates and directions yet again. Those of you who blog out there probably know what this is like. Sometimes, things feel so "eventful" even when they really aren't, while other times? Well, it feels like we're just sort of coasting along a bit. Keeping on, keeping on, as the song goes. This year, or lately anyway, it feels like it's been more change, and most change for the better, I'd have to say. I like the way things have unfolded and are starting to unfold. It feels a bit like, well, a bit like development. At least, I hope it does for you too.

In other, completely unrelated news, HE'S BACK.

Who's back? You might ask. And I'd be all too happy to tell you.

The Christmas Tree Bandit is Back!

Yes, yes, it's true. He's back. I even saw him on Monday, stringing up his garland for all the world to see. And, what's even better than him being back? What's even funnier is that, well, the Austin Police Department came very close to catching him, red handed too, as it were. Yes, not much more than a few hundred yards from where he was "a garland stringing" I also spotted a motorcycle officer stopped to write a ticket to some poor motorist. (And, in case you're wondering what, exactly a Christmas Tree Bandit is, wonder no more, for I have a link.)

Oh, happy happy joy joy, the Christmas Tree Bandit is back!

Until next time...

Thanks, Postcards!

It feels weird celebrating 237 I know, but it's been a bit of a weird year, hasn't it?
