Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Happy Blogiversary!

I may not know much, but I know what I blog.

Hello, one and all. I’d like to take the time now to thank each and every one of you for stopping by today. (I’d have tidied up if I’d known you were coming. Sorry the blog’s such a mess. You know what they say, ‘A cluttered blog is the sign of a raving, unstable lunatic.’ Heh. Yeah.)

Anyway, today my special blog is one whole month old!

(I know, it doesn’t look a day over three weeks, does it? You’re too kind.)

And in that all-too-short time, lots of things have happened. Or been made up and exaggerated, rather, but still, we’ve had a lot of fun, haven’t we? There even seem to be a couple of people coming back over and over, if my stats logs are to be believed.

(Ma, is that you? You know you should be taking your medication, Ma.)

I haven’t been able to nail down specific IP addresses yet — you know, so I can drop by and deliver wet, sloppy ‘thank you’ kisses — but I’m working on that. And I’m practicing with the dog in the meantime, so I’ll be really good by the time I get to you. Promise.

So, I’m not quite sure what to do to commemorate this most solemn and important event. The blog and I have only been together a month, after all, so I don’t want to go too fast. You know, if I get something too lavish, I might scare it off. I can’t come on too strong. I think I’ve decided on finally sorting the blog links on the sidebar into a BlogRolling roll, and linking that up, instead of managing it by hand. That seems like a nice gesture, I think. Plus, that sort of ‘tidying up’ is pretty similar to what I did for my now-wife on our one-month dating anniversary, when I organized her underwear drawer. (I sorted by looking at colors to start, then subcategorized by using… um, my other senses.) And I think that went over well, so I thought I’d try something similar here.

(Well, to be honest, there was a bit of awkwardness at the time, but most of that was just a misunderstanding. See, my now-wife was living in a dorm room with another girl at the time, and I couldn’t be sure whose undies were which, so I went through both dressers. You know, just to be safe. Anyway, I was trying to surprise her with it, but she walked in just as I was in the middle of the project. And working in the wrong dresser. And in the process of, er, subsorting her roommate’s stack of ‘pinks’. But we talked it out like rational people, and — once I could walk again — got right back on track. All in all, one of our better anniversaries, now that I think about it.)

All right, enough of that. We’re here today to talk about this blog’s Big Day, not some freshman coed’s pink panties. Al-though… No, best not to go there. Onward and upward, instead. Onward and upward.

So, check out the old-but-newly-formatted blogroll to the right of this text. Marvel at the formatting, the sublime shading, and the exquisite font.

(Each letter has been lovingly carved from rich Corinthian leather, carefully hand-painted and stitched together, and delivered right to your door! You know, by barefoot kids in grimy sweatshops, the way Nature intended.)

Don’t embarrass the blog or anything, but just say ‘hello’, okay? ‘Congratulations,’ maybe. That sort of thing. Be kind, rewind, and all that. Or leave a comment — the blog loves comments. (Or thinks it would, anyway, if it made enough damned sense to anyone to warrant the occasional remark.)

So, that’s it. I may be back later with a ‘real’ post, but I just wanted to be sure to wish my blog well on its special day.

(I may even be back later to throw a surprise party, with balloons and cake and donkeys and everything. So don’t tell the blog, okay? If it finds out, and then I can’t get the donkeys rented, it’ll be so disappointed. Shhhhhh.)

So until later, Happy Anniversary, blog. Soak it all in, and take it easy today. It’ll be another whole month before I’m nice to you again. So enjoy it while you can. Peace out.
