Happy 12 to MNPP

.
Tomorrow (Friday) marks the 12th anniversary of this here place called My New Plaid Pants - I started blogging this site on June 2nd, 2005 and here we are 896 posts about Jake Gyllenhaal later, still going strong. Strongish, anyway. Strong adjacent?

Anyway if you'll allow me a PBS moment I'm going to use this annual yippee as an opportunity to ask for donations, of the monetary sort. I put a lot of work into this here site - too much for my own sanity, probably - and I don't make any money for all this work, so if you've ever enjoyed any of my nonsense why don't you throw me a penny or two? Or three, even!


And over in the right-hand column there's always a Donation Button right there, waiting... waiting... waiting... or you can do your Amazon shopping through our site (also in the right-hand column) and we get a decent percentage on that.

I try to keep ads to a minimum because I find ads distracting and annoying and nobody ever clicks on those things anyway. But I really also could use a little side income, on occasion, given all the work I put in. I love doing it! I do it for fun. But somebody's got to keep me flush in glittery hair-dos and Golden Girls Action Figures, after all.

In all seriousness I love you guys and I love writing this site but money's kinda sorta become an issue and without deep-diving down this particular rabbit hole I'm trying to figure out what the hell I'm doing with my life here just shy of 40 years old and I could use some help, of the compensatory sort, if you're willing or able. Don't think of it as begging... think of it as a reward! That's what I am telling myself anyway, to feel not quite so lame. 

Anyway that's my spiel. I hope you've enjoyed these past 12 years of gratuitous ogling and bottomless bullshit, and I hope I can keep doing this for as long I have nonsense to spout. Thanks to all of you for coming... and staying. 

Now maybe sneak a couple singles on the dresser as you slink out?

This is my absolute favorite place on the internet. Thanks so much for all you do. I love your idea of 'nonsense' cause it's mine too! We all need an outlet to cut away from the crazy reality we all live in now. This is where I go to get away...and books about, of all things, dystopian futures. I'll gladly chip in for your hard work.

Thank you for the kindness, Blair! Very much appreciated :)

How much of you shutting up about La Binoche does 10 bucks get me? That aside, the site is almost perfect. :)

I look forward to your posts every day and even forgive you your long weekends! So I threw a few shekels into the pot! Happy anniversary and thanks so much for keeping my spirits high in these crazy times!

Congrats! I love your site, horse-face Jake notwithstanding. We don't need to take ourselves too seriously and that's the spirit your site embodies.

mangrove - NEVER!!! I have Binoche 4-eva tattooed on my scrotum and I must live up to that. ;)

Thank you to all of you who've donated. I mean it sincerely and sweetly, both of which come hard to my sarcastic ass. (There's a dirty joke in there somewhere...)

Happy Anniversary!! I love MNPP!! I wait for your reviews before I go to Horror Movies because you are right on spot. Also, you turned me on to some really good books, especially my favorite, "Call Me By Your Name". Thanks for being here to greet me every morning (out here in California)! Mick C.
