One year ago, I posted some anti-resolutions in this space and OH WHAT A RIDE WE’VE BEEN ON SINCE, readers and fans. We learned to love sweaters that double as robes in what I call “The Sw’obe Trilogy” (here, here, and here). I’ve told you all about how I accidentally bought thongs at Target and together we mourned the death of my Good Bra. I related a series of unfortunate events as our Lhasa Apso, Oscar, pushed me down the stairs and broke my nose, I was wheeled out of Harry Potter World by paramedics, and spent three days in the Disney hospital hooked up to IVs.
I’ve posted as many unflattering photos of myself as possible, because I like to keep expectations low.
And, most recently, you helped me to raise $1000 toward a pediatric clinic in my daughter’s homeland of Ethiopia, for which you will be richly repaid in the New Year when I post a most-awesome video of myself rapping “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.
After a year, I feel like together we’ve built a little community here at The Reedster Speaks, and for that, I’m grateful. So for one lucky reader, I’ve got a special gift to mark my one year anniversary.
My friend Tony Horning from high school is a graphic artist and designed my first fan-created art – a “Jaunty Fedora, Motherf***ers” logo.
Just leave a comment below with your favorite post of the year and your T-shirt size. I personally will pull my iron out of the drawer in my bedroom dresser and press the design onto a shirt for you.
Thanks for reading, and see you in 2013!
