Starting Monday, a new story for you while I'm on vacation

Sep 17 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

Hey folks,

I'm going on vacation for three weeks. But instead of leaving you hanging, I'm going to introduce to a new story that I wrote a while ago called Thank You For Calling.

Don't worry, Stuck Station will return October 10.

Thank You For Calling takes place in the Stuck Universe, but does not have anything to do with our current story (maybe).

By the way, as of today, Stuck Station is 29 posts behind my goal. I plan to catch up this year if it kills me.

I'm off, don't miss me too much.

P.S. I'm experimenting with using more bold words to try to make the story more readable.   Please tell me what you think about the new story and the use of bold.

Oh, one final thing. Some of the quotes don't have ending quotations marks on them. That's intentional.

For example, sometimes you'll have two paragraphs like this:

"Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla.

"Bla bla bla bla bla bla."

From what I can tell, that's how you punctuate paragraphs when the words are part of the same quote but they're split into two different sections, one after another.

I split up some of the larger paragraphs to make the story (hopefully) more readable.

Today is my birthday: The presents must flow

Oct 27 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

Today (Thursday) is my birthday, and I'm taking the whole day off.

There will be three posts up at 10 p.m. Friday.

If you want to get me a present, you have four voluntary (for now) options.

1. You could read the "Best News Ever" (always conveniently located in the menu above). If, after reading it, you have comments, questions, criticisms, marriage proposals etc. I'd love to talk to you about them. My email is cranny777@gmail.com.

2. You could donate by clicking the Donate button on the right. Even a dollar would be cool.

3. You click the Facebook Like  button on the right.

4. You could simply wish me a happy birthday in the comments.

I think the first option is the most important, but the other ones are cool too.
