Five Hundred

Some notable 500s:

This is my 500th blog post. The first one was way back in 2004, when I was in a mode of daily political foaming-at-the-mouth ranting. It was easy back then. But pointless. All it did was make my teeth ache and my stomach gurgle. Many beers later and a new focus, my teeth hurt a lot less.

The biggest benefit I've gained from blogging is meeting a bunch of new friends and really cool people, mostly in the writing community. A hearty thank you to all of you!

Wow! 500 posts! That's amazing - congratulations!
Also thanks for playing The Proclaimers coz I love them!

I don't know if you'll even get this (do they show Phoenix Nights and Little Britain over there?) but this was a big hit here last year for Comic Relief

Roll on the next 500!

BT, you must have way too much time on your hands if you plan on reading my political idiocy from 2004.

paisley, congrats to you too! I hope you'll let me know when your 500 pops up!

BSP... BOL. Insincere complimentary comments on age... how bourgeois.

jane, not sure what made me think of searching for the Proclaimers, but I do like this song. And I love the version you linked to. Thanks for that!!

leonard... I am humbled! Thank you so much for the link! Egads, I now have been linked a couple of times for this.

WW, blogger has this great feature that tells you how many posts you have. No way I ever would have tried to count. I'm not sure I can count that high anyway.

gene--like Blogless Troll, you must have way too much time on your hands. Oh, that's right. You're retired. :-)
