Jan. 9 2011 - celebrated one year - "the past... the future..."
Feb. 2, 2011 - hit post number 200 - "Tinker"
May 7, 2011 - hit post number 300 - "sea of smileys"
I celebrated my 100th post by writings a pantoum. I completely ignored my 200th post...well, not ignored really...just let it pass without acknowledgement. I did celebrate one year awhile back. That i did not allow to go unacknowledged.
so here i am typing away at my 300th post. i'm not really sure why this should be an important post...i suppose it's because it's ends in zero...and we like to think of things ending in zero (or multiples of 25...of which 300 is both) as something special...a milestone...they even make special cards for birthdays and anniversaries...of course they don't go nearly as high as 300. when do you think the greeting card company will catch up to the cyber-celebrations. "Yeah, you just got your 1,000th follower...keep tweeting." "Congrats on hitting 300 posts!" "Do you really have 5,000 friends...didn't anyone tell you you can deny a friend request?"
anyway...i celebrate today with a "Sea of Smileys" cheering me on.
i couldn't help myself...i had to do a bit of math...
7 months (give or take two days) to hit 100100 in 3 months...no wonder i'm feeling drained...no wonder my old friends, paper and pencil, are calling my name again...
6 months (give or take five days) to hit 200
3 months (give or take five days) to hit 300
