It’s December, must be time for some Classic Caterpickles

I can always tell when Thanksgiving is over because the searches for my Santa posts go through the roof. Most years, I repost the Santa questions on Mondays as Classic Caterpickles, which let me get through the holidays without doing any extra work. (Wait, did I type that out loud?)

Ahem.

This year, I have higher aspirations for myself. I’m still planning to repost those Santa questions because clearly, folks want to know when Santa’s birthday is, how old he is, and why some folks call him Kris Kringle, but I’m going to do them on Thursdays, and keep slogging through The Nine-Year-Old’s ever-growing list of fresh questions on Mondays. It’s the Caterpickles version of #throwbackthursday.

(For you Caterpickles trivia buffs out there, my most requested post of all time is “How long can jellyfish sting after they’re dead?” — which, interestingly enough, is a question that came up on Christmas vacation.)

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
