The Best Of Words

Another year of words has passed us by.

Last year we took a look at the year’s best from Words For My Enjoyment according to me. And now, here we sit (or stand, or crouch, or half-kneel/crouch) by the computer with another 400+ posts in the hopper.

For new WFME readers and those who have stood by in the past two and a half years — I give you, yet again, a look back at some of the best that ever was, ever has been, ever will be and ever can be. (By the way, I’m shedding a tear as I write this.)

    Do you pinky-swear? ‘Cause otherwise, I just don’t believe you.

    And Happy New Year, Pauly D.!

    But all of these are dated 2004?!? What kind of trickery is this?

    Ah… when you click on them, they are indeed 2005 entries.

    For a second there I was worried that 2005 didn’t happen, and I would have to do it all over again.

    Dave – It’s the kind of trickery that gets fixed behind the scenes without anyone else knowing, thus making your comment seem strange, confusing and one that makes no sense.

    I am God here.

    Thank you ever so much for bringing attention to these. After all, I’m a new reader, and I could have gone through all of 2006 not realizing the dangers lurking within my potato salad otherwise. All right, yes – I know about the excessively warm climate / salmonella connection, but otherwise, not a clue. It may be a cultural thing, this ignorance on my part: here in Canada, the new Stalin has always been beer. In fact, this is so much the case that by the time all the guests arrive, many Canadian BBQs still involve nothing more than grilled dead animals and microbrews. Of course, since Canada’s new Stalin has always been beer, it’s not exactly the new Stalin. It also offers even more tangible proof to you, our southern neighbours, that we Canadians really are commie pinkos, because you’ll never hear anyone here yell, “Down with beer!”

    Thanks for all the words, Pauly. I’ll continue to read in 2006. I only faithfully read seven blogs. Well, seven if you count as a blog.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year from South Dakota… if you ever get this way ….. I’ll buy you a beer. Peace out, inky

    Auld Lang Syne, Pauly! *clink*, here’s to something fabulously wonderful for 2006…and *clink*, here’s to more WFME!!! Thanks!

    word up P-Diddy. Great to peruse the back-issues. I have a question: in four more years will you be doing a “Best of the Decade” retrospective?! That would rock!

    Happy New Year.

    someday i will be as cool as you and have enough pithy words on my blog to warrant a yearly retrospective… happy new year, Pauly, and here’s to you sighting more celebs in ’06 for our amusement.

  10. Will - December 31, 2005 at 10:56 pm -

    Happy New Year, Paul, and good luck in all your endeavors in 2006.

  11. the swede - January 1, 2006 at 12:56 am -

    Happy New Year to you and yours, Paul! I hope this year will bring you whatever you wish for (unless you wish for world destruction and crap like that.)

    2006 will, for me, be filled with a lot more you than 2005. How do I know? Because I just “discovered” your blog about a month ago.


  12. better safe than sorry - January 1, 2006 at 5:47 am -

    happy new years!

  13. Amy - January 1, 2006 at 5:57 am -

    Happy New Year! I hope this one is a great one for you.

  14. LisaBinDaCity - January 1, 2006 at 8:04 am -

    My head is about to explode so I will read your “best of” later.

    Happy New Year to you and yours Paul!

  15. Pauly D - January 1, 2006 at 9:38 am -

    Thanks, all of you! Happy New Year to you too.

  16. kartooner - January 1, 2006 at 10:15 am -

    Thanks Paul for all the laughs this year. Looking forward to many more this coming New Year.

    400 posts in one year?

    I expect you to triple that this year.

    I mean, that’s totally not an obscene lot of posting.

    Totally not.

  18. Pauly D - January 1, 2006 at 6:23 pm -

    JM – Yeah, I’m going for 1000 in 2006. I think I can do it.
