Those of you still reading may remember that at the start of the year I put up a blog post saying that my blogging days were coming to an end, but that I would be going out on a (possible) high by doing one last series of Strictly. Since then the Universe has basically repeatedly hopped in saying “are you suuuuuuuuuuuuuure?”. Kevin and AJ, two of the most…content providing pros leave, the coronavirus strikes and makes us all miserable, the coronavirus strikes and makes me feel like it’d be a bit rotten making fun of what will no doubt be a show doing its best under very testing circumstances and necessarily coming up with a compromised end-product, the coronavirus striking and making me very very very busy at work, the coronavirus striking and making it impossible to tell when this series is even going to start and under what format…a lot of stuff, mostly, let’s face it, regarding coronavirus.
And on Friday came the two final straws that broke the camel’s back – firstly, after over a decade of letting me run endless pointless polls on this blog for free, wordpress have decided they’re going to start charging for the privilege, and secondly, and infinitely more importantly, the news that there’s going to be NO BRUNO this year. Either because of, yes, coronavirus travel restrictions, OR because he’s finally found D of such high quality in LA that one week a winter is no longer enough.
At any rate, the upshot is that sadly, I won’t be recapping this year’s series of Strictly, mostly on the grounds that if you’re not going to be doing something properly (ie with polls on whose face when they’re called safe most looks lime they’re cumming) then it’s not worth doing, and the last piece of #content that will be shared on this blog will be the results of the Pro Poll 2020. WordPress at least having allowed me to get that in before they turn the taps off. The countdown begins next week, get yourselves ready.
