But that was before I reached that milestone myself.
Now I understand completely. You must think this is the most awesome achievement in the world
So welcome to my extravagant 100th-Post Celebration! Please find your seat. You’ll see that there are place cards at the various linen-covered and orchid-festooned tables around the room. Those of you who’ve been dropping by here longer and commenting more will find your names closer to the stage up front. You’ll notice a couple of celebrities like StillHisGirl , but only so many people will get to sit at her table. I apologize for those who have to sit at tables with the likes of Slanderer and DeathByAsphyxiation. Maybe next year you’ll rank.
Our host and emcee tonight is Emily from TheLearningNeverStops. She really wanted this gig badly because she heard she would get to do lots of wardrobe changes at commercial breaks, and she is sooooo into the sequins. Emily, we’d love to hear your descriptions of some of the outfits that Vera Wang has made just for you for this occasion.
Gayle at Grace4Gayle is in charge of the catering. Inspired by her relatively new thrifty shopping and menu-planning blog, I selected her because I knew she could feed all of our guests tonight with my whopping budget of $50. (I think she’s going to try to spend less, because I told her she can keep whatever money she has left.) So Gayle, please comment and let us know what delicacies you’ve prepared.
BigDoofus is working up a monologue and a slideshow with flashbacks from the previous 99 posts. Be sure to have a tissue handy. Rumor has it that it may be quite emotional.
I think we may also have a surprise appearance by Tim from Duckabush. The paparazzi are hoping he’ll bring the fabled Scrabble Tile which has become almost legendary. Maybe you can even get your picture taken with it.
And Javamamma has prepared a Haiku which I hope she’ll leave in the comments as well. Who doesn’t love a good haiku?
To honor the rest of my favorite visitors (which are ALL my visitors), we’ll also have an open mic so that you can each share you’re fondest memories and life-changing moments from these first 100 posts.
Then it’s off to the After Party at Cracker Barrel (all commenters welcome) where we’ll eat, drink, dance the Chicken Dance and look forward to what’s in store for the next 100 posts…Robot dogs? Meals in a pill? Manned flights to Mars? Kids that clean up their rooms when asked?
So thank you, thank you, thank you to all my new friends and old. It has been a pleasure writing my drivel and going to your blogs to read yours. So many of us are going through this same journey of raising kids and surviving marriage, and it’s been wonderful to do that together in a way. You’ve made me laugh and cry, and often both at the same time.
Oooh…I almost forgot. I’m looking for what to put in the gift bags. Every celebration like this needs gift bags for the guests, right? So if you want to make an imaginary contribution for that, just say so in the comments, and we’ll oooh and aaah at your imaginary generosity.
Thanks again to everyone who reads this blog and made me the blogger I am today.
