Getting the best of you.

Backtalk Roundup Ate My Kinja

This day has been the strangest and then I remembered, duh, the time just changed, plus the month changed and there is only one more December left and then 2014 is history which is nuts because that means it's almost 2015 and I don't know about you, but I never got used to the idea that it was 2014 even and now it's past that. Time just keeps marching on whether you pay attention or not. Time does not care. Time is like your big sister and will always tell you they're smarter and get out of their room. Luckily Backtalk Roundup is always there to agree that your sister is a heinous wench and here's stuff that has been on Backtalk to distract you from her:

Intherain wrote a lovely thing about parentals, and getting old, and candy, and sniff....

Teapot checks in to say hi, which is a fabulous reason for a post...

Also, Granddad gets COTD for this post in that thread. (Backtalk Roundup is a sly one, slipping the COTD in there. That's why you love us, xoxo.)

Snacktastic hired this up-and-coming artist to write an ode to Kinja and omg, this kid, Robert Plant, he might be going places, you have to hear him! The song is a little long. Maybe he needs a haircut. Other than that, he's going places...

Scavengers is playing with bunnies. Some people might be afraid of bunnies but Backtalk Roundup is not and says you're being silly and to get ahold of yourself...

K2b wants to know why you're not appreciating the kitty and honestly, whyyy? why aren't you??? kitties don't lick windows for their own funsies, y'know, when a kitty performs a public service YOU APPRECIATE IT. Sorry we raised our voice it's just that Backtalk Roundup cannot let injustices just sit there...

Gamecat shared some William Orbit music and Backtalk Roundup agrees, it truly is fun to hear and great for doing nothing, but it's also great for doing the important work of roundups, which is hardly nothing, so it's a multitalented piece of music..

Snacktastic reminded us to do our duty and Backtalk Roundup didn't feel guilty because it remembered to vote today! Pshew! If you didn't vote, it's OK, it's not too late, everybody's election is officially on the 4th, this was just early voting, so calm down. Geez, you get so worked up. Does everyplace have early voting? We don't know, do we look like Google? Backtalk Roundup assumes so but then again elections are not situations in which Backtalk Roundup is accustomed to assuming anything, so you'd better check with your local supervisor of elections. Well anyway, that's for next week, we're not done with this week and it's still 2014. You need to calm down...

HungryHeart gives a shoutout to all the writers toiling out there on their novels for National Novel Writing Month, which began yesterday. If you haven't started you're not too late, and yes, some people are already 4,000 words or so into their novels, but others are not, oh no sirree, unless you count in their heads where they're already finished and sipping mai-tais...

Speaking of live threads, Goodnight Backtalk Open Thread is up and running as we speak. We're running next to each other, actually, on our separate treadmills listening to Beyonce on our earbuds. Hey Backtalk Open Thread! Lookin' good! Aw, thanks, Pilates, y'know! Haha, totally...

And now we come to the sad part, when Backtalk Roundup says that's all you get for today. Which is a lot, considering kinja had a hiccup or a nuclear meltdown or something in-between and was in READ ONLY (oh god! imagine! the passivity!) for so long that the topic threatened to overwhelm Kinja Twitter. Which just proves that Backtalk Roundup really is like Miley Cyrus. It can't stop. It won't stop. You're begging now aren't you? OK fine. Goodnight!
