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!

We Have a Wiener!

More on this — and much, oh so much more — later, but this little old blog received its 10,000th visitor today! Woo hoo!

And, as promised, I’d like to thank the lucky round-number-person who put us over the top with a gift of some kind. Preferably a ‘wish list’ gift, but we’ll cross that bridge when we’ve paid the toll.

You see… I’m not really sure who it was that I need to thank. But I know that the hit came this morning, and I have an IP address associated with it. So here’s what I’d like you to do — if you visited earlier this morning, please come back and leave a comment on this post. If I can match your comment IP address with the 10,000th hitter, then you’re in line for fabulous prizes!

(Well, okay, just one prize, actually. And I’m not quite rich enough to make it ‘fabulous’. So you might want to replace ‘fabulous prizes‘ above with ‘mediocre crap‘. Still, it’s free mediocre crap, and I think we can all appreciate how rare that is.)

So, leave me a comment, and I’ll get you some swag.

(If you’re the right commenter, that is. All of you people just chiming in to congratulate me, or express your enthusiasm, or brag about how many more hits that you have are getting nothing. Nothing except my undying appreciation and gratitude, of course.

Except you braggy people with ten thousand hits a friggin’ day. You people suck. Let me have my damned moment, will you?)

So, that’s it for now. Thanks to everyone who’s stopped by and had a look around — I’ll have a more complete ‘State of the Blog’ address later on (lots of exciting things are happening!), so stay tuned for that. Oh, and I’ll try to be funny later today, too. Yeah, that should be a hoot. At least you’ll be able to laugh at me. Meh.

And so, in summary (’cause that’s the way TJ likes it): yay to me, thanks to you, gimme comments, and somebody’s gettin’ some loot.

Damn, folks… what the hell else could you want from a blogger, anyway?

    ooh, LOVE the summary feature. that’s nice. i think the only thing that could make it better is pictures. cause some of your words are too big for my puny mind to understand.

  2. Scott-san says:

    Only children rule the world. Or not, I guess, because they don’t have any brothers or sisters to back them up. And suddenly, I’m feeling very lonely.

  3. Scarlett says:

    congrats on hitting the big 10!!! I hit it myself this week, so I guess we are on a roll huh. Anyway good luck on keeping it going.

  4. Sabrina says:

    I was here earlier…but I never win anything so probably wasn’t me…

  5. amber says:

    Ok, I’m throwing my hat into the ring… I was here this morning, so who knows?

  6. Jenn says:

    You mean the site counters can go up that high? Amazing. Congrats on 10,000. I hit your site everyday (but not too hard, really), so who knows, it could’ve been me. Although I have to tell you, the last time I got something unexpectedly, it was a baby, so none of that crap, okay?

  7. Amber says:

    I’m really weirded out. There’s someone else that comes here who’s name is Amber? I’ve had that name forever! I mean, it’s not like it’s an exceedingly ordinary name like, oh I dunno, CHARLIE.

    I was here, but apparently the last few digits of my IP address change. I discovered that on my own site meter in an attempt to block my own visits from registering. I’m Level3. Probably the only person in that genre.

    By the way, this is a shameless bid for comments. Totally without pride, you are. Tee-Hee. I must try it on my blog…
