Ten Thousand Hits

According to my site stats I’ve recently passed the 10,000 mark for blog hits. I’d like to thank everyone out there who’s taken the time to visit, and I’d like to add an extra thank you to my top four commenters:

EDWARD HOTSPUR

SAVOR THE FOLLY

VERYNORMAL

SPARKLEBUMPS

Don’t forget to visit this past Friday’s LOVE LETTERS GONE WRONG post and leave your guess as to who (whom?) you think the secret admirer is in the comments. The author’s identity will be revealed with this Monday’s SPaM post featuring British darling Megan from Verynormal!

Now I leave you with a favorite song of mine that I find appropriate. Actually, I’d write an entire blog post just to find a way to link a Disturbed song to it. Enjoy!

    • “…you come out with some very amusing (and clever) stuff…”
      Where were you when it came time to comment on my report card? I could have used you.

  11. H R Nightmare

    Your blog is growing up so fast. ( small smiling tear drop ). It feels like just yesterday you had 100.

    December 4, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    • I read your name quickly and thought it said, “H E Nightmare.” A little more fitting, don’t you think? 😛

      December 4, 2011 at 5:02 pm

      • H R Nightmare

        Use caution what you wish for my dear I just might see you in a dream. Again.

        December 4, 2011 at 5:26 pm

        • Oh dear Lord…..

          December 4, 2011 at 5:27 pm

          • H R Nightmare

            The phrase your looking for is ” OH GOD YES ”
            Followed by other choise words too if you like.

            December 4, 2011 at 5:48 pm

            • The only choice words that come to mind are “Hell,” “Freeze” and “Over.”

              December 4, 2011 at 5:52 pm

              • H R Nightmare

                Ok that hurt a little.

                .

                .

                All better now.

      December 4, 2011 at 5:03 pm

  13. Uou’ve been tapped 10,000 times. Just like Madonna.

    December 4, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    • Ugh…You’ve*

      December 4, 2011 at 1:09 pm

      • Both right. Ugh, and *you’ve.

        December 4, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    • TOO FUNNY!!!!!

      December 4, 2011 at 5:10 pm

  14. Congrats on the milestone. Your blog is excellent as is your song choice! So glad I found you and your blog.

    Your book was a great read, too.

    December 4, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    • Thanks for taking the time to listen and read!

      December 4, 2011 at 5:11 pm

  15. Congratulations!! 😀 ….. and this genius ^ :p

    December 4, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    • You’re too kind. 🙂

      December 4, 2011 at 5:12 pm

  16. Congratulations on 10k! Feels kinda cool, doesn’t it?

    December 4, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    • I couldn’t be any cooler if I had a Fedora on my head and a Zagnut bar in my pocket.

      December 4, 2011 at 5:13 pm

      • H R Nightmare

        Wait that was a zagnut, Thank God.

        December 4, 2011 at 5:53 pm

        • Alright, that’s funny.

          December 4, 2011 at 5:54 pm

      • Was watching House Hunters on HGTV, and this lady must have said ‘granite countertop’ like 15 times. It got funnier each time. I wonder if I can force another story out the Play-doh form that is my brain.

        December 4, 2011 at 6:26 pm

        • I often find inspiration from cooking shows. The word Zucchini isn’t used nearly enough.

          December 4, 2011 at 8:04 pm

  17. Congrats on the mega milestone! There’s many more around the corner, I’m sure!!!

    December 4, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    • Mega thanks Kayjai!

      December 4, 2011 at 5:26 pm

  18. Congrats! And very cool that you added one of my favorite bands too. 🙂

    December 4, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    • You are my favorite new friend.

      December 4, 2011 at 5:25 pm

  19. GO YOU!!!!
    I’ll hit 10,000 one day. I’m getting 500 hits a day now, but then my hand cramps up hitting the F5 button…

    I bet you, on the other hand, came by them all honestly.
    ROCK ON, H.E!!!

    December 4, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    • Thanks! I’m going to assume I came by them honestly, since I haven’t got a clue as to what F5 is all about. Yeah, seriously not computer savvy here.

      December 4, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    • LOL! And I thought your hand cramped up for a completely different reason, heh heh. Still involving the computer, oddly enough. Do you get what I’m saying here? I think you might have carpal tunnel from a desk setup that is not ergonomically friendly, and you may need to get a special split-angle keyboard and adjust the height of it relative to the monitor and desktop.

      December 4, 2011 at 7:59 pm

      • And batteries. Don’t forget the batteries.

        December 4, 2011 at 8:01 pm

        • EH – you’re talking about my right hand. I was talking about my left.
          Sheesh.

          December 4, 2011 at 8:54 pm

          • You said your hand cramped up, but then you said “on the other hand”. Obviously you use both hands.

            December 4, 2011 at 8:59 pm

            • No, but HE’s family may read this, and I didn’t want to say “feet”.
              Yeah, I’m versatile.

              December 4, 2011 at 11:58 pm

              • Awesome.

                December 5, 2011 at 10:42 am

  20. H R Nightmare

    That’s why i got myself the iPhone. There’s a wiper app for that.

    December 4, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    • Dude…gross.

      December 4, 2011 at 8:41 pm

  21. You are amazing and wonderful. XOXO
    On another note, my brother is convinced that I turned him on to Disturbed. I find this hard to believe since I only know one of their songs…

    December 5, 2011 at 8:27 am

    • One song is all you need. They’re righteous.

      December 5, 2011 at 10:42 am

  22. wordsfallfrommyeyes

    Awesome.

    I’ve only been on WordPress a couple of months – since August – but I LOVE the community feel. It’s such a positive community – & you’ve named a fave of mine: Edward Hotspur. Huge congrats, it’s great stuff 🙂

    December 5, 2011 at 9:50 am

    • He is the best, isn’t he?

    Way to go! Congratulations!

    Disturbed is awesome. For an extra-special treat, check out Richard Cheese’s lounge version of Down with the Sickness. It was featured in the remake of Dawn of the Dead.

    December 6, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    • Oh God Richard Cheese. Too perfect!

      December 6, 2011 at 9:29 pm

  25. As soon as I saw the title to that post I knew Disturbed had to make an appearance. I’m glad you and I were on the same wavelength there

    December 11, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    • There are very few of us, you know. We need to stick together. I’m looking for a reason to post more Type O Negative stuff.
