Weekend Threesome – 10/17/21

Though it was a pretty active week for me, especially with my store’s inventory on Thursday, there isn’t really anything for me to include in one of these posts.  So I’ll use two-thirds of this Sunday’s Threesome to announce a couple of features I have planned for The Nest’s upcoming milestone since I need to do it sometime in the nest few weeks anyway…

As hard as it is to believe, Evil Squirrel’s Nest turns ten years old on Christmas Eve this year… and you knew I wouldn’t let it pass without some exciting features looking back on a decade of Nestiness.

Designed by Miss Wartnose’s remedial kindergarten class.

I have two series planned out that will be run on Tuesdays beginning in November and continuing into next March.  The first will celebrate my blog’s most enduring segment, Saturday Squirrel, which has been featuring my sciurine photography for a tad over nine years now.  Beginning with The Nest’s first full year, 2012, you’ll be treated to my favorite squirrel pics from each year of my blog’s first decade, along with a brief synopsis of what was going on at The Nest in that year.  So be on the lookout for all those cool retro squirrels beginning in a few weeks…

Oh boy, oh boy! I can’t wait!!!!

When that series ends on January 4th, I’ll pick up on the following Tuesday with another 10th anniversary series themed around one of my very favorite annual features that, thanks to Google’s hypocritical stance on “protecting privacy,” I’ll be unable to properly run for 2021.

Good, I could use a break to polish my golden nose.

Since there will be no Sandy Awards this year due to the utter lack of search terms that break through Google’s encryption, that calls for a special 10th anniversary Sandy Awards spectacular!  I’ve gathered up all of the greatest Sandy nominated terms from my blog’s entire decade long collection and sorted them into my classic categories, which will be revealed week by week beginning January 11th until the final post that contains my favorite terms from each category, as well as THE all time Sandy Award for the best search term EVER on The Nest!  Prepare to laugh, cry, and fidget about in your seats as the show drags on entirely too long once again, only this time on a weekly basis!

The Official Awards Show of “That Other Place”…

And finally, on a non blog related anniversary note….. after much delay, welcome Autumn!  I don’t think I’ve ever had to go this far into October before without breaking out the jacket or turning on the furnace… but maybe by Halloween, there’ll finally be some frost on the pumpkin.

I shouldn’t joke… it snowed on October 30th just two years ago.

  1. YAY! Ten years of Nesting huh? That’s a whole lot of creativity and mayhem and we’re all glad to have it believe me. We’re wondering what’s up with Fall too. Just got back from a week in Maine where they are wondering the same thing. It was warm….we usually see all the colorful leaves and people with cozy sweaters and Fall colored sweatshirts on…..this year we saw flipflops, shorts and way more skin than we’ve ever seen in Maine in October. Looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve for these special events – knowing you there’s more than an arm up that sleeve of yours!

    • Last weekend it creeped up into the 90’s… but other than that, the weather’s really been nice. Just not really Fall-like. That’s definitely changed the last few days. I’m sure the squirrels, who’ve been growing their fur out like normal, will appreciate the cooler temps.

  2. Here’s hoping the frost isn’t quite ‘that’ thick on Halloween. 🎃

    It’s pretty warm here too.
    Looking forward to the anniversary madness!

  4. Ten years – congratulations!

  5. I suppose you are aware that you have jinxed yourself and your furry friends now and there will be more than a bit of snow coming your way very soon? Or not. The meterologists don’t know what the weather is going to do, how could an ordinary citizen find out? I hope it stays frugally temperate for a week or two into November at least. But we’ve got snow out here where it’s supposedly desert country and hot, the snow is far away on the tops of the mountain peaks granted (and can stay there for all of me), so I don’t think the mid-west should be spared. It’ ain’t fair! 😉 (heartiest congratulations for being a fixture for a decade now! I’m glad I was encouraged to visit! 🙂 )

    Congrats! I just got notified that today marks 9 years since I signed up on WordPress. Pretty neat that I stuck with something this long!

    • Congrats on 9 years! That means you’d been around for two months when I found you. I’d like to think I was your (cough) inspiration for sticking around….

      • Mer O'Leary says:

        Thanks! Of course you’ve been a major inspiration over the years, we hit it off right from the start! Plus I had to stick around, who else would give you a good slap when you’re ornery?

      • Mer O'Leary says:

        Ya know, I hope that I haven’t offended you but you don’t read my posts anymore. 😦

      • That’s not intentional if I’m missing posts, and I apologize. I usually only check my reader on Thursday and Sunday mornings and only go back a day or so. If I’m looking for something specific out of that range, like SYW on Monday or Pam’s Teaser on Tuesdays, I can click on the link to their blogs in my comments. But I can’t do that with you, so scrolling through all the posts in my reader’s the only way to find you. I’ll go check what I missed!

      • Mer O'Leary says:

        I guess that the magnets didn’t fix the paranoia part of my brain! You’re (cough) kinda special to me, like Draliman is. OG blog friends and all that are still around.

      • I can be lackidaisical somet…. er, a lot. but I’ll never ignore you on purpose. It’s an honor to be special just like Draliman! Us weird people need to stick together…

      • Mer O'Leary says:

        Fuck yes we do! And I’m always behind myself here in blogland nowadays but I try to make sure that I read you and Draliman’s posts…

  7. Happy Anniversary. Thank you for sticking it out and being consistently entertaining, smart, and cute! From all of my critters (and assorted weirdos, vampires, ghosts, cats, and ghouls) to all of your critters and cats – everyone is looking forward to another 10 years. Seriously you have to stick it out with me. xoxoxoxo

    • I don’t plan on going anywhere unless I start running around in the middle of the street like my squirrel friends. I’m already bouncing around ideas for the Contest of Whatever in February…. this time I will make sure to remind you!
