They say there's a worldwide economic depression looming... a slow down. Does this affect aspects of our society that aren't monetized? I only spent 40$ on Christmas gifts this year, while previously spending as much as $50 per year, but do I walk the dog less? Or do I take fewer pictures? It's hard to think of examples that don't have monetary impact without getting right to what brought me here: I don't have any financial stake in doing my blog here, but I do sometimes check out how many people are logging on. I guess it's like social capital: are people looking at what I'm doing? For whatever reason it matters; I guess I just like having an audience for all my attempts at humor and photography. Well, my monthly visitor tally is falling harder than the NASDAQ. There is no price of admission, so what happened? Did everyone with an office job that previously logged in twice a day lose that job, giving them no incentive to look at the web? Or are people too busy trying to hustle their way to a meal to waste time on non-essential endeavours? Or has it been right here all along: If I don't have any economic optimism, will I not do anything interesting (car adventures, vacations, travel, action shots), leading to no interesting content on the site? For example, a picture of a sweatshirt and a table cloth? I don't blame you, people who have emigrated. Ok, sorry for trying to think. I'll talk about fan-sites and tallboys next time. My bread and butter.
Our Bike posse, as you may have heard, is 2muchbikeposse. Because it's really too much! Anyhow, P dogg had a dinner party, and she got all sleepy once everyone left. She just pulled up a blanket and hit the hay, right there. I guess maybe she wanted to savor having the dinner table out with the nice Xmas themed centerpiece. It was quite nice, with sprigs of evergreen, holly, and Santa.
Wilson and P were pretty adept at handling the snow, being raised in Alaska and going to high school in New Hampshire respectively.
It snowed! I took yesterday off because it was supposed to be an arctic blast! OF CHAOS! anyhow, it was raining in the afternoon, so I was just basically kicking it, feeling a little sheepish to buy into the news' hype.
