: the milestone :

If I had a nickel for every post I’ve written in the last eight and half months, I’d have $4.95. I know, it’s not a lot of money, is it? But it is a lot of posts. Ninety-nine of them, I’ll have an even hundred after I publish this. Wow, one hundred posts — I should do something spectacular here, inspiring even.

Yeah, spectacular, that’s something I can do. Especially now, with my nose running like a marathoner. Who knew one head could hold this much fluid? Or two pockets could harbor so many damp, soggy tissues. I won’t stick my hands in there anymore; seriously, it’s the Okefenokee.

Be glad you’re out there and I’m in here, because I am a petri dish, teeming with germs. All I do is sneeze, sniff, blow, wipe, honk, and wheeze. My eyes are glassy, my skin is blotchy, and my nose is chapped. I’m surprised it’s not picture day.

Instead it’s the biggest day (thus far) in the history of publikworks and the best I can come up with is a head cold? Well, I guess it’s better than what I had — I had nothing. Squat. Bupkis. I briefly considered doing a retrospective of my old posts or charting my growth as a blogger, but I spared you that. More importantly, I spared me that.

I decided to celebrate this, my 100th post, with a shot of NyQuilllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

    WOW! Congrats Lisa to 100 posts!!! Thank you for 100 times giggles and smiles (most of the time). Keep going girl! No matter about what you are writing, it alwas turns out great. Yeah, you even manage to turn something like a headcold into something to snicker about. And just remember the bugs and the neighbors *gigglegiggle* I’m looking forward to the next 900 posts. =)

      Thank you, Min, it’s been fun mostly. I’m not ready to give up yet, but 900 posts? Wow, that’s a bunch. You’ll get tired of them long before then : )

    I get those kind of head colds when I have to give a speech, interview for a job, or, worse, on my first day at a new job. Happens all the time, so you’re reference to picture day is right in there.

    Congratulations on the milestone from another “Above-Average Crackpot.” Get better, I recommend “Theraflu.” It will “dry” you up.

      Aren’t they a pain? I’m to the point where wiping my nose with a tissue is agony, the tissue may as well be a high-grade sandpaper. Ow Ow Ow Ow.

      Thanks, Len. I appreciate it. A good night’s night sleep did wonders for me.

    Yeah, $4.95 is nothing to write home about. Won’t even get you a Grand Slam breakfast at Denny’s anymore. But 100 posts is VERY IMPRESSIVE. Congratulations!

    Happy 100th! I’ve only read four so far, but I feel as if we’ve known each other since 1907.

      I feel the same way, cof, but you’ve aged so much better. What’s your secret?

      Oh, and sorry about all the comments on your Bon Iver post — I just couldn’t stop.

    Wow. That’s hot.

    The Okefenokee made me laugh and gag at the same time.

    Congrats on making it to 100! And well … I hope you feel better soon.

      I couldn’t have done it without you, Lenore. You’ve been with me almost since the beginning and always with an encouraging comment. Sometimes the only comment. You’ll always have a special place in my heart, thank you!
