My 500th Post

I've been thinking for a while how I would treat this, my 500th post.

500 posts.

I have yammered and gone on and on for 500 posts. My blog isn't huge, but I'm surprised every week by the people I discover that read it. It's not always that damn interesting, but some people are reading it. For that I cry a little.

From happiness you hooches!

So, I have been thinking what I would do.

The truth? I'm not much of a planner. I'm not really good at it. I don't like too many details. If I'm given too many details, too many emails, too many changes, I shut down. I stop reading, listening, paying attention.

I'm a bottom-line kind of girl. Just get me to the bottom; get me to the meat of it. Get me?

When I know the when; when I know the how; when I know the end; that's what works for me. All the rest of it is chatter to me. I'm not saying that the details aren't important - oh yes they are! Some details I'm fond of. I won't go into details on the types of details I am fond of, but just know that some do work for me. I'm trying really really hard to not use a winking emoticon.

This yammering and going on and on has been a life changer for me. Not in ways you can see by looking at me, but in ways I see when looking at me.

So this is the way I'm treating this, my 500th post. Yammering on and on.

Smooches to all.

Happy 500th and I've enjoyed them all... except when I was AWOL and missed some.

It would take me decades to do that many. Keep it up!

500. That's a bunch! That suggests you're one deep thinker. Yes, you are!

This tempts me to try going back to read each and every one, back to Post #1. I have no doubt it would be an enlightening and enjoyable read.

Enjoy the weekend!

Thanks 4 the cool comment you left on my post about WKRP in Cincinnati. It's strange to hear me think and know I live in Cincinnati now. I love the show too. My favorites ones on there were Herb Tarlek, he crakced me up, with his 70s car salesman outfits with white belts, Johnny Fever, because he was just so strange and out there he was funny

Happy 500th, girlie!

3 blogs and I've yet to reach 500. I always seem to get in trouble and have to move on. ; )

And I'm with you. Get to the point, I say! The Olympics, Academy awards, etc. would be WAY more interesting if they just got down to business. I have no interest in seeing people prancing around on stage so the people in the audience have time to pee.
