Well, this is it.
I had planned to make a little video to celebrate this final post, but there were, um, technical difficulties:
Ah, well. I tried.
Yes, Typewriter Monkey Task Force is ending at last. Before I lay the blog to rest, I should probably answer a few final questions.
What will happen to your typewriter monkeys?
A few readers have asked about my typewriter monkeys—as a precaution, I presume, in order to stay out of their way. Never fear! I don’t intend to unleash my monkeys upon any of my readers.
My monkeys wanted to set off some fireworks to celebrate the blog’s end, but that never ends well, so I threw them a goodbye party instead. I provided snacks, and they brought their own drinks. (I didn’t even know you could make cocktails with rum and bananas.) They drank enough rum to float a boat, and ate enough bananas to sink one.
While my monkeys slept off their hangovers, I took the opportunity to pack them comfortably in a large crate, and to ship them to Australia.
Of all places on Earth, the Outback seemed like the one where my monkeys could do the least damage. (Even so, brace yourself, Australia.) If the Mad Max movies are to be believed, the Australian interior is already pretty wild, so my monkeys will fit right in.
What will you do now that TMTF is over?
I will catch up with long overdue housework, sleep, work on my story project, and play some video games… probably not in that order.
Where can I follow your future projects?
You can always find me on Twitter, where I’ll share any future news or announcements.
Do you have any final comments?
I made most of my concluding remarks in TMTF’s final posts, in which I highlighted the best of the blog, thanked readers, reminisced, and looked forward to something new.
As a matter of fact, I have just one more thing to say.
I want to leave you with a blessing. It’s an old one from the Bible, and I mean every word of it:
“The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine upon you, and give you peace.”
It’s been quite a journey. Thanks for coming along.
Adam out. Peace.
