HAPPY TRAGIC BLOGOVERSARY

Well, well, well. Seems another year has passed. And the more things change, the more they . . . change?

Those of you masochistic enough to come by here regularly know that two years ago a fella name a' Mike started posting his inconsequential thoughts for the world to see. And shockingly, a small sliver of the world actually showed up to read him.

(And discovered, to their never-ending pleasure, that he never wrote in the third person like he's inexplicably doing now.)

Anyhow, as you also know, these days I write blog posts about as often as George Bush reads a book. And I have the facts to prove it: In Year One™ I posted 560 times. Year Two™? 94.

Of course you also know that two days ago was the one year anniversary of my "new" job. So this ain't happening in a vacuum.

And what does it all mean? As usual, I have no idea. I'm not here to explain things. I'm here to blab about whatever's on my mind! It's for you to figure out where it all fits in. Buncha' freeloaders.

So what should you expect in Year Three™? Can't really say, but here are your choices:
a. 561 posts containing trenchant commentary on everything under the sun.
b. 5 posts essentially saying, "uhhh, I'm sorry I never post anymore." Oh, and at least 3 memes.
c. Somewhere between those extremes
d. Complete disappearance
All I can say for sure is that I'll do my best to avoid "d." And I can also say that the odds of "a" are somewhere between "fat" and "chance." So it's a toss-up between "b" & "c." I'll let you decide.

(You can decide. I doubt it'll affect what happens.

You're welcome.

I'll hope for C. (Wasn't that a quote from George Bush in his Yale days?)

Well, I continue to believe that among people who choose to behave at least mostly honestly, web relationships are potentially valuable--not profitable--but valuable--falling somewhere in between saving democracy and having a few laughs.

I miss your posts (possibly excepting the ones regarding music and movies, but that is probably generational,) but you have to live your life.

I heard a wood thrush in Houston, TX this morning. I'm playing golf tomorrow with my ex-next door neighbor. And I am shutting down right now to play the guitar.

Glad to know you didn't get hit by a bus.

Indeed. Probably what I miss most, since I'm getting plenty of "thinking," "writing," and "analyzing" at work.

Happy Blogoversary!!

We do miss your posts, and will extend to you that if your own blog becomes cumbersome, you are more than welcome to be a regular contributor at Around the Keg. We'd be honored.

Of course, I'm happy to make you a contributor anyway, if you wish to join the ranks of the inebriated.

For my part, I always *loved* your posts on a Silly Movie of the Week. A tremendous amount of research went into those, but they were amazingly well-written and quite often hilarious.

Here's to another year of blogging!

Rickey seconds the sentiments voiced by Smitty. Keep up the strong work--it was those brilliant movie posts that sucked Rickey in. But the lack of posting Rickey can definitely relate to. Rickey looks forward to actually talking with people in the comments section than actually cranking out a blog post.

Congrats, Mike.

In honor of the occasion, we're waking the Nachos blog out of its coma. It may be a while before we get back to fighting strength, but we're on the way.

Baby steps....

What's the equivalent of Viagra in the blogosphere?

A meme. Now get busy, as it were.
