While I released my first post earlier in February of 2009, I never circulated the URL until one year ago today, so this is the day I claim for my blogiversary.
From February until August, I blogged in relative obscurity. That September, though, people began to find me based on comments I’d left on other blogs.
To you reading me now and all who may find this in the future, I thank you. Knowing that you are reading gives me all the motivation I need to continue writing.
So many of you have been so kind with your time and guidance, and you continue to provide daily examples of how good a blog can be. I thank you for your time and friendship.
So as a token of my appreciation, I’m posting the coolest video I’ve seen in quite some time. If you’re a fan of either boogie-woogie piano or dancing, you’re going to love this:
Admit it, that was totally “The Shit.” (And if you didn’t bother to click “play”… Party Pooper!) Special thanks to my Dad, for sending me the video!
Screeching Change of Subject Alert:
I stayed home sick on Friday, after spending all day Thursday coughing my brains out. I bought some cough medicine on the way home. I haven’t taken cough medicine, especially in liquid form, in over 30 years. As a kid, you think it tastes pretty good.
As a grownup, it’s like you’re doing a shot. I had this overwhelming urge to lick some salt and take a bite of lemon each time I took a dose. Is it just me?
Anyway, the important thing is that it worked. Will be back on the job on Monday. But until then, it’s Gold Medal Hockey time! USA! USA! (um, and Go Sid!) I stick by my earlier wishes… a hat trick for Sidney Crosby, but a 4-3 victory for the US.
