The Times and Seasons Hat Trick

August 27, 2007 | 27 comments

This summer, Times and Seasons was fortunate enough to host three superb guest-bloggers: Dave Banack, of Dave’s Mormon Inquiry fame; Patricia Gunter Karamesines, who came to us by way of A Motley Vision; and Kathryn Lynard Soper, who blogs and writes at her pseudo-eponymous blog and the journal Segullah. We are proud to announce that, one by one, all of these fine guestbloggers have succumbed to our desperate pleadings and wholly fictional promises of shiny new kitchen appliances stuffed with cash have agreed to make their presence here at Times and Seasons more permanent. For more proper introductions to them all, see our welcome to Dave here, Patricia here, and Kathy here….but for now, welcome the new permabloggers!

All right, fine, breaks over; back to posting, all of you, or you’ll get the lash. [crack!]

    Congratulations! A step up for T&S in all respects.

  2. Adam Greenwood on August 27, 2007 at 7:10 pm

    Bah! I’ll redouble my mediocrity. There will be no step up, this I swear.

  3. Ray on August 27, 2007 at 7:15 pm

    Thanks Dave, Patricia and Kathryn – for continuing to give me threads I can enjoy as I tolerate Adam’s.

  4. Emily M. on August 27, 2007 at 8:16 pm

    I look forward to reading your posts. And, hey, I checked the blogger bios to see if you’ve updated them yet…

    What is the salary of T & S bloggers?

  6. Ardis Parshall on August 27, 2007 at 8:21 pm

    You can’t afford us, CC.

  7. Patricia Karamesines on August 27, 2007 at 8:58 pm

    Actually, I think we’re the ones who are gonna pay.

  8. queuno on August 27, 2007 at 9:03 pm

    Worth every penny!

  9. m&m on August 27, 2007 at 10:08 pm

    This is great. Congrats to all.

  10. Dave on August 27, 2007 at 11:42 pm

    Thanks for the nice thoughts, everyone. Yes, I have always aspired to posting clever little notes under “Notes from All Over.” The blogging stuff is just cover.

  11. Keri on August 28, 2007 at 12:03 am

    Welcome aboard!

  12. Frank McIntyre on August 28, 2007 at 1:13 am

    Welcome!

    May all your posts be understood, all your words spelled correctly, and virtually none of your commenters inebriated.

  13. fMhlisa on August 28, 2007 at 1:58 am

    Oh, this is very nice! Good ideas all around.

  14. Kathryn Lynard Soper on August 28, 2007 at 9:13 am

    Frank, are you saing I can’t spel wel? I’m crushd.

    And it wasn’t polite to bring up Adam’s drinking problem in public.

    Thanks, everyone. It’s an honor to be here. Virtual tithing envelopes will be available soon so that you can make your donations through PayPal. I want to install hardwood floors in my house, so please be generous.

    Very nice additions.

  16. Mark IV on August 28, 2007 at 10:44 am

    So, where does this leave Segullah, AMV, and DMI? If this means that those wonderful parts of the bloggernacle have been assimilated, I’ll see you in hell, T&S!

  17. Ray on August 28, 2007 at 10:52 am

    Mark, if (as I hope) I won’t see you there, will we be able to be pen-pals, at least? That actually would be a fascinating blog if you end up there, but . . . (*grin*)

  18. Mark IV on August 28, 2007 at 10:58 am

    Ray, I’d call it smooth blogging.

  19. Ray on August 28, 2007 at 11:09 am

    Now that is a comment before which I can bow in recognition of a higher intellect.

  20. Adam Greenwood on August 28, 2007 at 11:42 am

    And it wasn’t polite to bring up Adam’s drinking problem in public.

    I don’t have a drinking problem, I’m able to drink just fine.

    [True anecdote: when I in training in southern Arizona, I managed to beat the company's record time for downing one canteen, except I did it with two. I puked immediately and my drill sergeant was heard to sigh and say 'what a waste he's a Mormon.']

  21. Kathryn Lynard Soper on August 28, 2007 at 12:30 pm

    Mark, Segullah is still going strong. They told us resistance was futile, but since we’re all women and therefore have superior spiritual power, we’ve been able to resist.

    Adam, that would be a great trick for your ward talent show. My husband’s standby is cramming 3 Ho-Hos in his mouth at once.

  22. Mark IV on August 28, 2007 at 12:38 pm

    Ah, Kathryn. I’m so glad that you adornments of humanity will continue to beam your delicate smiles upon us.

    :)

  23. Kathryn Lynard Soper on August 28, 2007 at 3:17 pm

    *snort*

  24. William Morris on August 28, 2007 at 4:01 pm

    Mark:

    I think the more relevant questions is — where did T&S go off its game that it had to raid talent from other blogs? ;-P

  25. Adam Greenwood on August 28, 2007 at 4:33 pm
  26. Jacob on August 28, 2007 at 5:21 pm

    Adam – I see exactly what you mean!
