200

[this is Andrea's cherry ride. i don't know Andrea. but this photo comes up when you photo search cherry ride.]

This is my 200th Blogger post. It's been a good ride so far. I've been blogging for a little over three years (first on my own site [now quite defunct], then MSN Spaces and now Blogger. I'm a bit of a blog slut). It's been hard for friends to keep track of me, but I thank everyone for sticking around as otherwise I'm sure I would have stopped a long time ago.

And thanks to all the new folks who've hitched a ride and/or are stopping by for the first time. Hello.

In this short amount of time, I've been back to Australia to visit my boy Richard, moved back to Chicago, found a job, told off a rude girl in line at Starbucks, rediscovered my long-supressed love for Dunkin' Donuts, drank a 40-ouncer in a respectable restaurant, and let one rip in a deli when I thought nobody was around (turned out there was).

I was supposed to be taking a bit of a break from blogging, but I've been able to verify what I've always suspected - I've got a bit of an addiction.

But in case I'm away for a few more days, you can read some of my favorite posts here, here, here, here, here and here. And here, here and here.

PS - I'm also glad because this week I've reached a milestone - over 100 visitors a day, which is great (and totally self-indulgent). Sure, there are some of you out there who get hundreds of visitors a day. Don't spoil this for me.
PPS - $17,500 - is that good?

I let one rip on Friday - one of those where it turns out much louder than you think it will. I know I was heard.

PS - my blog is worth about $515, so I'd say you're doing OK.

Wooo, $1,693.62!

Don't think I'll give up the day job just yet though.

Hope we'll be seeing you back soon, you know you can't stay away for long, it's in your blood now, blogger for life!

Congrats on the 200th! I think I just hit 60.

At which restaurant did you drink a 40? Was it Old English?

Damnit, a Panda and Little Superstar are neck and neck! I need to find more computers . . .

BTW, I am trying to learn Lil's dance for my 10 year reunion. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Dude, 200. Holy hell. Plus I'd take over 30 people a day. Hmmmm.

Pat Benatar is right, my friend. You ARE a battlefield.
