200th Post

This is my 200th post. That, in my mind, is momentous. Who knew this blog would last so long? (Perhaps Nostradamus- he was a wise fellow.) This post also nearly coincides with its 10,000 hit. Granted 9,942 of those were from yours truly, bu the remaining 58 were from Holla Atchya! fans like Oprah and President Otunbayeva of Kyrgyzstan.  My first post was on 6 April 2008, a mere 928 days ago, or 2.54 years. There was a major renovation on 1 October 2010 which you may recall, resulting in a new facade. At this time of deep reflection, most of which happened in the shower, I've decided that I need to go back to my blogging roots. I enjoy my earlier posts more than my 2010 ones, and I've identified three vital characteristics that I've strayed from:
  1. More pictures.
  2. More vocabulary.
  3. More humor.
Everyone enjoys a picture, unless you are blind or Brett Favre. Every junior in high school likes to improve their vocabulary in preparation for the PSAT, and everyone besides Eyore and Bill Belichik loves a good joke.  So, I hope the next 200 posts will coruscate even more brightly and that my posts will maintain their laconic yet entertaining content. As always, I'm open for suggestions and new shoes, so make them known or drop them off by my apartment. To finish, I will share a quick joke that should offend at least one person:
Confucian Wisdom: Man Who Run In Front of Car Get Tired. Man Who Run Behind Car Get Exhausted.

Congrats, Dave! I love reading your blog, and I especially love your vocabulary words. I thought the joke was hilarious. I look forward to reading many more blog posts.

dude, david, thanks for doubling the amount of comments we've received in the past year... jealous that everyone got together, not jealous of the food (neener)!

i look forward to learning lots of big words in the future. and that joke made me laugh more than i should admit.
