Within a few hundred views, I’m going to hit a small milestone. Small in comparison, to say Daily Kos, or even Pharyngula. But for this humble blogger, it’s a lot more that I ever anticipated when I started this blog.
Roughly fourteen months after I decided to go public with those precursors to mental illness we commonly call brain farts, i.e this blog, I’m about to hit the 100,000 view milestone.
I’m not sure whether that’s really significant. In fact, being the critical thinker I imagine myself to be, I’m sure it’s not significant. However, it is a very large number. I’m actually into six digits. If that was income, I could afford my kid’s college education, or at least his drug rehab.
So my question to you, my faithful reader (you know who you are) is this. How do I mark this momentous occasion? How do I celebrate it? Do I bring out the L’il Inquisitors and have them show you what they’ve learned, lo, these past 14 months? I’m sure they have some mementos of the past few months that they are quite proud of. I seem to remember a few skulls, though I’ve shied away from their videotape collection.
You tell me.
Should I buy a cake? With 100,000 candles?
Should I call it quits and shut down, conceding that I’ve said everything that could possibly be said? Or at least typed everything that could possibly be typed in the hunt-and-peck style I employ?
Should I get my friends in the Atheosphere to petition Congress to pass a Resolution congratulating me on my overworked and underwhelming milestone? Do you think Bush would sign it? Or could I hope for, dare I say it, a presidential veto?
Should I get PhillyChief to photoshop the L’il Inquisitors into maturity?
Should I provoke The Exterminator into a attitude of pissedoffedness? (This is not a state of mental well being to be emulated, though frankly, it is easy to pull off. I’ll just write in Pastor John Hagee in the upcoming Presidential election.)
Should I acknowledge that this was all a dream, that JR Ewing made me write this blog, and that when I awoke, I realized that I was a committed Christian?
From Texas, no less?
I’m really at a loss, here.
I need some suggestions.
