Just 18,685 views all year. Compared to 106,366 views during Cycle 5, back when GMTD was on blogspot.
As per GMTD tradition (see previously 5.365 Linguine in Clam Sauce…), here’s the highlight reel for Cycle 6, a year marked by Tao Yuan and buffets…

BEST DINNER PARTY

Most of the good stuff happened in the early part of the year, when I was perhaps more open and attuned to positive experiences.
Recently, I’ve struggled with the notion that the blog may be suffering from a lack of enthusiasm, as suggested by the perfunctory writing (see generally 6.222 Crunchwrap Supreme), which may signal the need to shut it down (see generally 6.318 Flash-Fried Bugs…)

And yet, even if it is time, I can’t bring myself to quit GMTD.
