Twizzy Update

With just 8 games remaining in The Twizzy, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my Twizzy Stars. These are people who took time out of their days to answer a bunch of nonsensical questions – and they did so with such humor and flair. I appreciate every single one of them.

I’m happy to see many of you still eagerly await its posting on Monday mornings. Thank you for your interest. I’ll be taking a break from The Twizzy for several weeks. I’ll be sure I give you fair warning before the start of The Twizzy Game 31.

For those of you who are new to The Twizzy, or for those who have forgotten, please take a look at the list of Twizzy stars. I’m truly honored they played along. They’re wonderful people. Please consider buying their books, newspapers, etc.
