You guys. It’s December 31st, which means that this is my last blog post of the year. I’ve made it through almost an entire year of posting an entry every day (well…ahem, sometimes I would skip a day or two and have to catch up — but that was the exception rather than the rule :)
I would like to thank each and every one of you for reading my site. For those of you who took the time to comment and give feedback — you rule! I really appreciate it.
From the entire team here at Mental Skillness, we wish you a very Happy New Year, and all the best for 2013!
Liberté, egalité, fraternité.
At this point, all I really want in life is a black-and-white checkered floor.
Bonus: walls painted to look like the night sky.
Many years ago, a friend of mine and I had a debate about how much we would be willing to pay to be able to travel back in time and see Led Zeppelin live during their heyday. My friend went so far as to say he would cut off one of his hands, which I thought was a little extreme. But anyway, we both agreed that we would pay mucho dinero for the opportunity to experience a Zeppelin show. As a bonus, their concerts were usually crazy long…3-1/2 hours (or more!) of pure rocking out. That’s some pretty epic bang for your time-travelling buck, I’d say.
I was thinking about our conversation the other day, and I realized that one of the great things about having a blog is that with a little imagination — and a bit of photoshopping — you can totally insert yourself into any fantasy scenario you want. The sky is the limit, my friends! With that in mind, I present to you my first installment of what will henceforth be known as ‘Wishful Skillin’. After all, you can’t make it happen if you don’t dream about it in the first place!
If you are reading this and thinking to yourself ‘MSkillz, time travel is indeed a beautiful dream, but sadly you can’t actually go back and catch a Zep show’…well, take a look at this picture of their legendary performance at 1970′s Bath Festival:
dude, I was totally there
Front row, of course! Why not? After all, it’s my fantasy.
Let me know…what’s your Wishful Skillin’?
Do you remember this guy? The little monster who would always run out from behind a tree and gobble you up at the end of a game of SkiFree? Well, he has his own facebook page now.
I used to play this game a lot when I was a kid, and I could never seem to avoid being eaten. But maybe I will see him in the woods the next time I venture out…I think we’re due for a re-match.
You guys! I have exciting news: Mental Skillness has buttons!!! These stylish little pins were made for me by my talented pal at Recovery Network Toronto and I couldn’t be more stoked to be proudly sporting one on my lapel right now.
If you’d like to be a cool cat too with your very own Mental Skillness button, just drop me a line at email@example.com with your mailing address and I’ll flip one into the mail for ya. Simple as that!
Buttons for everyone!
