The Moon Topples One Hundredth Post Extravaganza!

Jeez. The one-hundredth post. A milestone, I suppose.

I should make sure to post something special for the 100th. Maybe some sort of grand comment on our times.

If you think about it, I now have twice as many posts as there are ways to leave your lover. Unless there are new ways they've invented since the early 70s.

I guess I never thought I would make it to 100 posts without getting bored of the whole blog thing and moving on to something else. I suppose I still might: the blog is less than 3 months old.

OK, focus. It's gotta be big and impressive. Funny, but still thoughtful. Something about the colony structure of naked mole rats, used as a metaphor for Congress? A dissection of societal mores using the A-team and Frito-Lay ad campaigns? An in-depth look at the death of interpersonal kindness in America, which slowly grows more and more insulting to the reader?

Nah. Maybe just something funny. Hmmm. I can't do prop comedy on a blog. Maybe a string of puns? Me as an insult comic? Seven words you can't write in a blog? Crap. That's all been done already.

Maybe just something wherein I express my gratitude to my readers for sticking around through 100 posts. Or an explanation of the name of the blog. People might like that.

As long as I don't do some awkward meta piece, I'm sure it'll be fine.

You just had to bring up that damn "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover" song didn't you? You KNEW that would get me to comment.

Okay, I am commenting.

Yes, a hundred posts since mid August. You are averaging over one post per day. One post per day, eleven phone calls per day, talking about those over one posts per day. That is a whole lot of energy you could be using to write that damned novel.

Oh and congratulations, by the way.

Massive congratulations - I believe most bloggers quit before the 3 month mark, so it looks like you're a stayer.

Hope the NaNo's coming along well.

HWDNS: Whatever. And thanks.

Julia: I still haven't quite made 3 months, but I don't see myself going anywhere. Unless, of course, I start having a regular job or something silly like that.

And NaNo's going great.

Congrats on your 100 posts. I wonder if anyone has actually read ALL 100 of them?
