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!

Okay, the ‘Contest’ Is Over…

…you can all go back to ignoring me now.

But many thanks and kudos and congratumalations to Riri, who stopped by last night at just the right time to become this site’s 50,000th visitor.

(And that doesn’t even count the three thousand times a day I check it myself! Woo hoo!)

Anyway, go give Riri a visit, over at Riri’s Brain Dump. By way of thanks, Riri, I’ve used the handy button on your site to make a donation to your Weekend to End Breast Cancer efforts. Thanks, and best of luck with the walk next month!

(And no, the rest of you, I’m not going to tell you exactly how much I donated. I’m shy like that.

I will say that it’s somewhere between $1 and $1000. And that it’s probably a lot closer to $1.

But not that close. It’s not $2, for instance. Or $3. And that’s all I’m going to say.

So immediately, you smartasses are going to think it’s $4, aren’t you? Jeez. Well, it’s not $4. Now leave me alone.

Oh, I know what you’re thinking — ‘It must be $5. What a cheap-ass!‘ Well, it’s not $5. And I’m really not saying any more. You can’t make me. Shoo!)

Okay, that’s all for now. The rest of you will just have to wait until I can manage to entice 100,000 people here for your next chance at free loot (or donations, whichever I’m in the mood for).

But look on the bright side — it only took… lessee, fourteen months or so for the first 50,000 hits. And the first couple of months pulled no eyeballs at all. So there’s a fairly good chance that by this time next year, we’ll hit another milestone.

(Assuming, of course, that the horny douchebags of the world continue to barrage this place with searches for ‘nude Stripperella‘ and ‘Holly McPeak’s pokey volleyball nipples‘ and ‘FHM pics of Rachel Ray’s enormous gaping mouth‘.

And I think I just guaranteed that they will, for a couple of months more, at least. Ah, well. Pervert eyeballs are still eyeballs, right? Maybe one of them will stick around for the silliness, instead of moving along to get all ‘sticky‘ elsewhere.

Yeah, probably not. Ah, well. The rest of you folks are still reading this, and that’s what really counts. So thanks, and go say hi to Riri. And then come back! At least by next August — there are fabulous prizes on the line! Fabulous! Prizes! Line! What more could you want, dammit?

    So you’re the one!! Thanks a huge bunch Charlie!! To be honest I was not expecting that someone who does not know me personally to donate and since this morning I was torturing my brain to figure out who Charlie was among the GTA Bloggers I met last night. I was already beating me up for having failed remembering names, but when I started seeing the redirects I understood. I owe you one, and I promise I won’t miss to come to one of the shows and give you some applauses. Ok, a hug too. If you don’t smell, maybe a kiss on the cheek too. :-)

    What can I say more? Another huge “Thanks” for being so spontaneous in your kind gesture. We haven’t talked in a while so I really appreciate it. You know I am always lurking from Bloglines, but I should come over more often, right? Have a nice weekend and you gotta believe that you made my day! And schhht, don’t tell anyone that we’re planning on buying the Empire State Building with all the money you gave me!

    Just in case you weren’t aware, your last post is a little broken. The link to Riri uses two different quotes, so an amount of your post is contained within the link.

  3. Riri says:

    Holy cow, I actually WON the contest???? Sorry, but only 12h later and after reading the above post a dozen times I finally understood that I was the 50.000th visitor. Is that really really true and real? For real? You gotta be kidding me. I am not joking I really had a brain poop.

    What more do I want? I just want more:-)

    Congrats on the milestone and the hope that one day I may get a 50,000th visitor also…

    …and good on you for supporting a worthwhile cause. Even if it was only $6;-)

    Gotta love search engines. Someone hit me in the search for Keira Knightly’s nipples… Sadly, I was not able to provide any real assistance in that direction…
