Back to The Basics

Good morning there puppets.

I simply wanted to write an update post today. I have been busily working on several projects for the up and coming year. One of them involves ventriloquism. One of them also involves a men’s urinal. What a combination, right? Those are the only hints I can give.

This weekend, be on the look out for the duo vlog from me and La La. There is something in it for you. We also think in the video, so you really don’t want to miss it.

On the morning of January 4th, my second article will go live on The Indie Chicks. It’s about that Color Run I didn’t actually run a while back, but it is also about expectations versus reality. I think we all can relate to that. Oh, and there is mention of slip-n-sliding so now you are required to read it.

There will be no fancy new blog theme for 2013. My blog avoids aesthetic improvements… much like your mom. Did you see that “your mom” joke that just happened?  Soak it up.

The end of this year has been really fun. Money was raised, there were shout outs galore, vlogs, blog parties, contests, special friendships, a few power couple formations, and I spontaneously combusted on ACOF.  Then, I even coerced some of my real life friends to start reading my blog. In doing so, however, it was brought to my attention by a non-blogger friend of mine, that sometimes reading my blog is like being the third wheel in a two-way conversation riddled with inside jokes.

The past three months has been outstanding to say the least, but come 2013 I want to get back to the basics of 25toFly. Good ole humorous posts that everyone can enjoy. Until Movember of course. You can still expect the occasional link love, and I would like to keep showcasing weekly comment winners. Other than that, I am focusing more on the writing come 2013. That’s why we are all here in the first place, is it not?

On a final note, New Years Eve is my favorite holiday. I am not responsible for any comments, e-mails, tweets or Facebook posts during this special time, but I will surely write them anyway.  Here’s to hoping I don’t end up blowing something up or making out with a wall at midnight.

P.S. One of those hints in the first paragraph is not true, but I am not telling which one.

  1. Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template
    or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.

    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    With thanks!

  2. Does the men’s urinal comment have something to do with ME?! (if you’ve seen an automatic flushing urinal you’ll know what I’m talking about…)
    OUWWWCH. fack, an ant just bit me. Damnit Thailand and her viscious bugs!

  3. You’ve got to write about the urinal; I’ll be so disappointed if you don’t!!

  4. A men’s urinal and ventriloquism? I hope hes worth it becca. I HOPE HES WORTH IT. Which ever one is true…. I hope the mens urinal is the fake one.

  5. I think this is awesome. I struggle with the same thing – trying to make sure everyone ‘gets’ every post. It’s not easy! Even when you’re talking about a family member you mention frequently, it’s tempting to think, “Nah, they know who this is. I don’t have to explain.” But that’s not fair to readers.

    Basically, I think of my blog as the Baby-Sitters Club LIttle Sister series, where Ann M. Martin always uses chapter 2 to explain the family dynamics. That b*tch never left you hanging.

  6. Becca, I love your blog. Congrats on your Indie Chicks article. Good for you. Cheers to a great year!

  7. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
    Enjoy yourself on New Year’s Eve, Becca! I hope you find a real-live human to make out with…

  8. Becca, not fun, don’t mess with mom please!
    NYE is my favorite holiday too, I have a post in my head that is so nice, too nice for my blog, I mean it, too nice to even put into words, so it’ll just come out lame and hard to get, as most of my posts.
    However, this time I hope I don’t miss you on Chatroulette.
    Remember, if Im still alive you can count on me be for Movember.
    I can’t believe I just made that rhyme, I’m a poet now.

    • I like you as a poet. I will keep you on the board for Movember. See you on Chatroulette. I will be wearing a crown and drinking from a large brandy snifter full of wine. I don’t follow glass wear rules!

  9. Hey, as long as you’re enjoying yourself.
    And you keep blogging.

    Have a great new years eve, and a spectacular 2013!

  10. Bec, I kind of agree with some of the non-bloggers. You have had a whirlwind of new blogging friendships, and I kind of felt like the kid who missed two days of school because of the flu and then when I got back the social dynamic has completely changed. Although, I do think it is way cool that you are collaborating and doing some very fun blogs. I look forward to your 2013 posts!

    • I did my rounds, I made a lot of new friends, and now it is time to work on putting out even better content than last year. Thanks Cheryl. The last thing I want is for anyone to feel out of the loop!

  11. It’s good to have a plan. 🙂

  12. Hi Becca! I just found your site over at Anka’s Keeping It Real blog! I had to come check you out and I’m glad I did! Funny Girl!

  13. Ventriloquism and a men’s urinal? If you can make a urinal talk you would be my fucking hero.

    Aside: men’s urinal is a little redundant considering there’s no such thing as a woman’s urinal. At least, not that I know of. That would make for exciting times in the ladies’ restrooms, though, wouldn’t it?

  14. Urinal-based ventriloquism is a market that has yet to be fully tapped, so I applaud you for trailblazing that new frontier in entertainment. Now, every time I see one of those blue cakes in the urinal, I will think, “Aww, Becca.”

  15. I can’t wait for your vlog with La La! 😀 When I saw this post, I was like shit is it the weekend already?! How did I miss the vlog?! And then I realized it was only Thursday… 😛

    As for NYE, I’m purposely going dancing with my mom and her friends to avoid the many many penises that get rubbed on me anytime I go out anywhere. I’m trying to AVOID making out with anyone, especially now since I’m going out with my mom and her friends…

  16. The end of this year seems like such a whirlwind for you! It’s like you’ve been out on tour and are finally back home. Can’t wait to see how you ring in the New Year!

  17. Good luck not making out with a wall.
    This year I hope I find the one I’m supposed to make out with. In 2011 I lost track of time in a chilling conversation about Michael Myers and what we think might be a “shape” that lives in the park behind my house. She wasn’t thrilled when she finally found me around 12:15.

  18. Inspirational as usual. I need to get together my own blog goals. Blogoals. They are floating around in my head somewhere.

  19. Okay let me guess, let me guess. You’re not writing a post about a ventriloquist. Am I right? Can’t WAIT for the posts whatever they be and your next for the Indie Chicks. Enjoy your New Year, must check I’m following you on Twitter for that ..

  20. Really looking forward to the vlog with La La. I broke a nail on a urinal once. Just got a new French manicure that day, and it was ruined that night.

  21. Nice. I think busting out some old fashion humor posts will be a great way to grow your readership in the next year and put your writing chops on display. They’re great for sharing with the rest of the internet outside of the WordPress bubble. I think my most viewed/liked/commented content are all pretty general humor posts.

    Who knows, maybe a or Mcsweeney’s internet tendency post will be in your future 😛

  22. Becca,
    You set the bar pretty damn high, with urinals and ventriloquists and indie chicks. Keep your tongue in when you get to that wall!
    I’m looking forward to another funny fucking year!

  23. Becca,
    Good call. Good call. See you in 2013. Exciting times.
    Le Clown

  24. the real one is the ventriloquism. you’re going to do a vlog and make it look like your vagina is talking. i know, vagina isn’t a very sexy word, but it’s not easy to refer to “that” with women because so many of you are so particular about which word is okay and which is gross and which is insulting. i prefer pussy.

    also, making out with a wall. great line.

  25. Has there always been a cat on the mic in you avatar? I feel silly if there has. That’s funny stuff.
    I’m excited about the new year. I’m in a terrible blog slump right now, but hopefully that will change in the next few days. I am looking forward to more of your writing though. Happy New Year!

    • Jon, the cat and the mic is my blabel (blog label). My gravatar is just my photo. So, no you didn’t really miss anything. I’m sure you will pull out of your slump in no time. Happy New Year to you too!
