EDIT: This was the last post I wrote at my old blogspot.
Now, before we begin, let me warn you that today I am sporting PMS colored glasses. I really am very excited to make a couple announcements. But apparently my hormones lead me to channel Steven Wright.
Announcement Numbah 1: This is my 200th post.
[insert enthusiastic applause as to rival the noise made at the Republican/Democrat National Convention HERE]
Let’s take a look back, shall we? First of all, one of the things that keeps me writing and more importantly striving to write better, are the comments. It is such an incredible compliment when someone takes a minute out of their blog time to click over and leave their two cents. My gosh, I love you guys! (Oh, for the love, here we go with the waterworks. Did you notice that estrogen and emotional start with the same letter? Coincidence? I think not.) So I give you…
Top Commentators List
20 Milk Maid
20 Miss Ann Derstood
19 Mrs Mustard
15 The Seester
7 Oh The Joys
4 Book & Hook
That took a while to put together. I counted them from comment notify emails from Blogger. Which I had on three different email accounts.
Ok, next nostalgic stop down memory lane. I spent literally hours at this next project, mistakenly thinking it’d be quick to find and replace code in an exported XML file of my blog. I kept thinking, oh, I can’t abandon this now that I’ve put this much time into it. Just 10 more minutes. Then Rocky texted me from his wedding inquiring as to my whereabouts on the biggest day of his life thus far. Oops. Just kidding. He’s starting sixth grade next week. Allow me a moment to be that mom, and exclaim, my baby! Ok, I’m done. Wait, where was I?
Oh, yeah. Then I took all the words sans code that made up my blog thus far and made a Wordle from it. It’s actually pretty cool.
Um, do I really use the words “just” and “like” that much? Yikes.
Announcement Numbah Two: This will be my last post on this site.
[insert gasps of shock and general say it ain’t so noise HERE]
So. If you twitter, you’ve seen that I’ve been cussing at setting up a new WordPress self-hosted, custom domain shit site. Which brings me to…
Announcement Numbah Three: http://www.cantrememberdiddly.me is ready for unveiling and ribbon-cutting and getting bashed in the header with a bottle of champagne.
[insert enthusiastic applause as to rival the noise made at the State of the Union Address HERE]
I’m going to take about a week off because I’m tired of looking at the *&$# thing I need to step away from it for a couple days. Yanno, so I don’t start researching code that blows shit up can come back with a fresh perspective. Well, that and I’ve been neglecting everything else, my Google Reader has over 400 unread items in it, and my house is a friggin’ pit.
So. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, (and I may cry if you don’t) is (1) to go to the new site, (2) say hi, and (3) update your subscription link! Have I mentioned how handsome/beautiful you look today? Have you lost weight? Well, you’re just fabulous.
Rip it, roll it, and punch it, dude. As we begin our descent, on behalf of all of us here at Can’t Remember Diddly, I’d like to thank you for joining us on this trip. We remind you to please wait until inside the terminal to use any electronic devices (or to smoke in the designated areas). Thank you again for swimming the friendly seas with Can’t Remember Diddly. We are looking forward to seeing you on board again in the near future. G’Bye now, g’bye, buh-bye, bye, g’bye, bye now…
Rip it, roll it, and punch it, dude. Go go go! Onduhlay! Rapido!
