The Best of Words

If you can believe it — the daily postings of Words For Your Enjoyment began back in December of 2003 — marking this month as the official one-year anniversary of the blog.

(If you can do me a favor here and picture a bunch of those old-school Arthurian trumpeters doing a whole big fanfare right here at this moment, that would help me out immensely.)

In celebration of a FULL YEAR of posts (611 to be exact) — the tirelessly working staff here at WFME has picked out their favorite posts from the previous year. There are some gems in there… Hell, they are all gems. So if you see a title of a column you never read, you can probably bet the family farm that indeed, you have never read it.

Thanks again to everyone for helping create a community on here, being supportive, friendly and blokkerish (you know who you are). I wish all of you the best in 2005 and a Happy New Year!

And yes, that is a bowling trophy. And yes, I wish I had one. And yes, words and bowling do have a lot in common because in bowling you are knocking down pins for a high score while in the world of creating sentences you are also knocking down letters to create… Oh, forget it.

    All good choices, Pauly. But I think your staff is sadly mistaken if, in August, they don’t pick “My Candy Lies in Wait.” Sometimes, when I need some inspiration (and when I’m a little high/bored, I’ll admit it) I read that post and snap my fingers, and I’m practically in Washington Square with Neil, Jack, and Alan.

    Congratulations on the anniversary! Tres bon! The April and May entries gave me a much needed laugh today. And thank you for being such a wonderfully talented writer Pauly. I really enjoy my daily visits here. 🙂
