100... like "300", but without the leather underwear...

     So... blogger informed to today that this would be my 100th post.  Really? I thought.  100 posts?  I had to stop for a moment.  This means that since Saturday,  September 1st of 2012 (except for that one post in November of 2011 that is positively abysmal) , I have taken the time to sit calmly, compose my thoughts, and then put them to "paper"... a purely selfish act.  I have taken time for myself.  What a novel idea.... heh.

     My blog has become a place to share my thoughts (in a somewhat organized fashion), record my children's funny little bits (before they are lost in the exhausted jumble that passes for my brain these days), and meet some wonderful folks.  I have to admit that this last one was the most surprising, not because I thought you were all creepy weirdos, but because so many of you are so effing awesome.  I have found myself wishing on many occasions that we all lived a bit closer and that I could meet you, your adorable children, and your hilarious significant others face-to-face over a glass of something alcoholic.  I want to throw a Bloggy Boil where we all stand around a picnic table, eating shrimp and corn on the cob, while the littles abuse my Lab in the back yard on a soft summer night.
Low Country Boil
This dumped on a table covered with newspaper... just heaven.

But this is not to be.  And twitter, while nice, is a poor substitute.  But I will take what I can get....  ;)

     So thank you all.  You have validated my insanity, puffed up my ego to extra-enormous proportions, and dispensed invaluable advice.  You have shared your innards/inner workings with the world and we are all better for it.  Here's to you, blogging friends!  And here's to the next 100.... may they be better constructed and more useful.  ;)

  5. It is amazing how you meet people through blogging while not actually meeting them.

    Congrats! But there's a rule once you hit 100 posts, you need t turn off your robot captcha thing.

    1. Hah! I would but my name (with its origins and the "Ø") make me a magnet for spammers and bots from across the seas. I took it off once and it went very, VERY badly.

  10. Congrats! So you're saying you *don't* have leather underwear? Because that might qualify someone as a weirdo :D
