Anniversary

Marilyn Monroe with birthday cakeIt is exactly one year to the day since Spectacular Attractions settled into its home on WordPress. In that time, its readership has grown steadily, and I’ve had a great time adding regular entries and reading comments from visitors. I look forward to continuing in the same spirit.

You may have noticed that Spectacular Attractions has been uncharacteristically quiet for a long time. Some of this was expected: attending a dear friend’s wedding in upstate New York, my partner and I decided to make a full holiday of it, stopping for most of the time with some of her superhumanly accommodating relatives in New Jersey, but also taking a few nights in Manhattan for good measure. However, towards the end I was admitted to hospital with stomach pains that turned out to be a ruptured Fall Riskappendix, then readmitted the following week to treat a resulting infection. After two weeks of drugs, drips, tubes and needles, I’m writing this from a comfortable hotel room, waiting for collection to take us to the airport for a flight home to the UK.

I can’t wait to get back to full fitness and clear my in-tray so that I can give this blog some care and attention. Normal service will be resumed shortly…

  1. Thanks, Catherine. Much appreciated. I notice that, on the contrary, Film Studies for Free has been kicking into overdrive lately. I’m still catching up on all the stuff that’s been piling up on my Google Reader. Keep up the excellent work!

  2. Get well soon, Dan! And looking forward to lot more fascinating posts at Spectacular Attraction…It’s been an immense learning experience reading the blog over the the last one year.

  4. Congratulations on the anniversary, Dan. My blog turned a year old quite recently, and it was an emotional moment. Sorry to hear about the illness – hope you get better soon.
