The first five hundred took more than two years; from 17 JUL 2006 to 19 AUG 2008, or about 763 days.
The next five hundred took three months less; from 19 AUG 2008 to 8 JUN 2010, or about 660 days,
And since then it's been 737 days. A total of 2,160 days for 1,500 posts. About a post every 1.4 days.
Fifteen hundred posts.
That's a hell of a lot of writing.
A hell of a lot of sitting up late at the computer thumping my index finger on my skull trying to figure out another word for "fucktardry". A hell of a lot of paging through the Internet looking for Charlie Sheen quotes to put in Muhammar Qaddafi's mouth. A hell of a lot of sorting through Asian bondage porn pictures for a good illustration for the concept of "hogtied".
Okay, maybe the porn wasn't exactly required for the bloggage. But, hey, I respect all Internet traditions!
It's late, and I don't want to go on and on about this; the first 500 seemed like a big deal. The next came at a sort of pivotal time in my life, and I wondered whether all this meant anything worth a cup of warm spit. But now I think I've pretty much figured this stuff out and I'm here for a while yet, so, hey, no biggie, right? Another 500 down, another 499 still to go. Put yourself a cup of coffee from the Silex, we might be here for a while; there's more stuff about soccer, kaiju movies, the barracks at Fort Kobbe, Panama, and "Republican Is The New Stupid" I need to talk about. And did I mention the whole "bikini record album cover" topic thing.
So I gotta get some sleep. See you tomorrow?
