Another month has flown by! As is now tradition, it’s time for me to wrap up the month by replying to things you guys have been saying and wrap the month up!
Yeah, a fancy new title for this part of the post. It’s the same old thing where I share the best comments and share them with you!
Niamh [on Laughing at London 2012]: Great! Have you seen this photoshop of the diving?!
I had not seen that photo but it made me laugh when I looked at it. Great stuff!
Precious [on Laughing at London 2012 #2]: This is awesome! I love Usain Bolt's arrogance (or is it just confidence?!) about playing for Man U.
I have news on this story! Bolt was the special guest at Manchester United for their match against Fulham last weekend. He was treated very well and met some of the players and had a chat with manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Is he going to be in the squad sometime soon? Unlikely, but you never know!
Niamh [on My Autobiography]: I have only managed to keep a diary for two periods of time in my life, one was a summer when I was about 9 or 10 maybe then one through a few months of year 11 which I think basically consisted of me writing about how we were getting to prom! :L But I don't think I could ever post my diary on the internet!
I wrote a diary inconsistently until 2007 when it saw of fell apart. Back in June though I started up a grand new grown-up one which is much better. I am very embarrassed by my old diaries and still cringe if I look back on the posts featuring excerpts from them. You can read “Dan’s Diaries” here and stay tuned as bits from my 2005 diary will be here at some point during September! I dread to think what that volume contains!
A few comments from the Guest Post which lists the Top 10 Cartoon Characters now:
Filman Santiago: while I love Popeye and Bugs Bunny, my son loves action heroes like Superman. Great list of top cartoons though.
Nellie Vaughn: How did Mickey not make it to number one. I am a little upset.
Horus: U should make a top 10 anime characters too! :D Big hug :3
Niamh: I love the Powerpuff girls! :D
I don’t think anyone could have agreed with the list as we all have our own opinions on cartoon characters. I think Mickey Mouse didn’t make the list because of how poorly known he is amongst today’s kids. Mickey has appeared in very few things over the last few years (the only thing I know for sure is the Epic Mickey games). I’d be happy to run a top 10 anime characters list if someone wanted to write it but I will have a special comics post coming up some time soon which you might like.
Phew! Thanks as always for all your comments and please do write something if you read one of my posts. Or at least give it a star rating underneath!
Minion of the Month: This goes to Niamh for some great comments and that picture of the divers with digestion issues. I love getting responses like that which add to what I’ve written!
Into Geek Highlights: The best posts this month are from my time in Edinburgh. Read about me exploring Scotland’s capital, seeing some great street performers and ending up on stage during a show by clicking here!
Guest Post of the Month: As you can saw from the great comments on it, the most popular guest post this month was the Top 10 Cartoon Characters. Thanks to Liam Ohm for that post and should you want to write your own all the details are here.
Blog of the Month: This time I’ve chose a blog which is a new addition to my enormous reading list and that’s Sweet Home Santa Barbara by Amy. I like her blog because it’s got lots of pictures to liven things up, it’s pretty funny and Amy just seems like a lovely person from her writing. Worth checking out!
It’s time for me to review the month. For me, August was great. It turned an average summer into a great one. The week in Edinburgh was fantastic as were the London Olympics. And I spent lots of time working and I loved it. It’s all ended on a great note too with a visit to the Bournemouth Air Festival and a family holiday to Center Parcs, which you can here all about next week. Overall, it’s been great and if every month was as good as August was I’d be more than happy with my lot in life.
Thank you for reading and come back throughout September for what I genuinely think might be the best month for this blog ever. Bye!
