That “you’re welcome” post below is annoying me. It always annoys me when bloggers ask for money of any kind, to be honest. I know some bloggers are doing wonderful journalistic or artistic or culinary or whatever sort of work, and work deserves compensation of some form, but the whole “like this blog? Donate to my PayPal account!” irks me in a nonspecific way I can’t really articulate. There’s nothing wrong with it, I suppose, but I don’t want to pretend to myself that my little letting-off-steam/scrapbook/journal/ranty blog is exactly revolutionarily (?) transforming the world and as such deserves your hard-earned dollars. (I know, I didn’t ask for donations, I asked for you to buy yourself a present—but still!) Mostly I write it for myself, and love it when like-minded thoughtful people stop by and say hello. And that’s good enough.
So I want to put another post up to push the other dude down a little, but my mind is a little scattery and it’s that time of year when I want to play in the sunshine instead of argue about The New Yorker, so I will leave you with just this:
That say “puppy smile.”
