12 of 12 is Sunday
I'm actually really tired, so I'm going to bed (also, the Frankenputer that Keith has been building is making a really loud whirring sound, so I'm annoyed at being in the same room with it. I'm also hungry. Overly hungry. Like where you're so hungry that you aren't hungry anymore, so go with it? Yeah. Like that. Sleep is like that too. Sometimes I get so sleepy that I wrap back around to not sleepy--or incapable of sleeping, probably--and just stay right on not sleeping. So, here I am, still not eating, but going to bed earlier than usual. Yes, I am aware that it is like 3:30am. What?).
12 of 12 is Sunday and if you've never done 12 of 12 then you definitely should do it this month because:
a. it's a Sunday, which means you won't be taking boring photos while you're at work (except for me... Sunday is the day I write my column)
b. the bonus photo is THANKSGIVING or whatever you're grateful for or whatever (that's always a good practice)
d. if you don't do 12 of 12 either this month or next (or both, I guess), then you can't say you've been doing it since its first year (and when it's as big as PostSecret or effin' YouTube and Chad makes $1.6 billion off it, you'll just be some sad Johnny Come Lately who started up in 2007 and everyone will say, "Oh, you are SO a year late," and you will cry).
Anyway, charge your camera batteries, clear off your memory card, and get ready for a fun 12 of 12 on Sunday. Deal? Okay, now I'm to bed. XXOO

Reading the comments on Erik's blog is like watching an improv sitcom. No laughtrack required;)
I'm jealous that I haven't been able to get you on the phone in 7 years!

I could post several pictures of me looking like crap because I'm sick.

Thanks for the shoutout BonBon!
I totally suck because I didn't do 12 of 12. Though I guess it wouldn't have been that interesting if I HAD done it. One of my playwriting groups had a retreat this weekend and so I was listening to play readings all day. (AWESOME play readings.) (Seriously, I was in awe.) (I'm not including myself in that--my play was a mess. Promising, but still a mess.) (But my reading was yesterday and so today I got to just sit back and relax and enjoy, and it was a blast.) (But it wouldn't have made for an exciting batch of photos.)
