Happy Thanksgiving!

I'd like to give thanks to all of you - my readers! When I started this, I never imagined that so many people would be interested in my inane pop culture ramblings. I heard once that the average lifespan of a blog is about six months. So many bloggers give up due to low readership, lack of time, lack of inspiration or they just plain lose interest. Since The Pop Eye is nearly 1 1/2 years old, I'm happy to say that I've overcome that six month itch and found some great "blogfriends" along the way. Thanks to all of you for reading my blog and creating blogs that I love to read. A very happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your families!

In honor of this day, I'm linking you all to what I think was one of my funniest posts ever, which just happens to be from last Thanksgiving. It was a bit of sarcastic lunacy that was inspired by everyone's favorite jive turkey - Tom Cruise. If you've never read it, or just want to see it again, click on the pic below to check it out.

Happy Turkey Day to you, too! And thanks for reminding me of the hilarious Thanksgiving post from last year, which is one of my favorites too. Also, congratulations on your longevity in the blogosphere and long may you post -- or until you get hired by VH1 with your own show. :)

See I KNEW you were 'good people'!!
I just wish I'd seen your blog sooner.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh and I am gonna do a 'John" dedication too --not your John who is too cool for words. But a sweet---cool--if he is not your boyfriend he is your best friend --John--can you guess?

most blogs don't last because a lot of people do it to show off to others. if they don't get an audience, they give up.

me, i got into blogging to help turn up my volume of thinking and writing towards graduate school. it lets me think, express myself, and sometimes share some research.

while i've built up a pretty large following, it wasn't my goal. that may be one reason why i have done well.

if they go away, i'll probably still keep writing.

Happy Thanksgiving! I don't think I had "found" you by Thanksgiving last year, so your "Tom-Turkey" post was new for me. But I think it should be an annual Pop Eye Thanksgiving Tradition for you to repost that every year. It's hilarious!

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
