*In all fairness to Buzz, I must admit… this is a holiday time of year that escapes me a little as well… excessive binging in advance of excessive fasting during Lent, when moderation the whole time would make more sense, no?
So… as I sit to type this live on the blog, the hit counter is at 29,999. To paraphrase from classic Doctor Who, this moment has been prepared for…
Over the weekend I prepared the above simple animation, knowing the milestone would probably happen early this week. Truth be told, this probably would have happened in January but the combination of illnesses and some Internet outages took away from my normal stream of visitors. I didn’t lose any followers (thank you all!) during those times but I did obviously lose hits those days when I hadn’t posted new nonsense.
I’ve continued the tradition of building upon the first animation I made when I hit the 10,000 hit milestone… then again at 20,000. Will I keep doing this? Who knows. I kind of like keeping the aspect of where-I-came-from by continually building on what came before for each new milestone.
Meanwhile… some less celebrated, but still occurring, milestones… I have over 975 posts on the blog now. Sometime in the next couple of weeks I will make the 1000th post on the blog. I’ll try and pay attention and do something special for that. That’s a lot of blogging in about 2.5 years! Also of note… at some point this past week I reached 650 episodes of my comic strip ‘Sects on the blog. I’ve had a lot of skipped days, some will be revisited, or that count could have been higher. Again, lots of nonsense from me the last couple of years! 🙂
I would like to take this moment to thank everyone who follows, and everyone who visits regularly. You give me encouragement to keep the nonsense going. Thank you! Also thank you to everyone who randomly stops by irregularly… one day I’ll ensnare you in my web of nonsense! 😉
*Be careful what you wish for… you might get it. Attempts to control the admittedly flawed media might not yield the anticipated results… unless you just like hearing the sound of your own voice.
*It’s funny ’cause it’s true… you can’t explain science… to people unwilling to listen! 🙂 Ironically, the people who demand the most proof from you are often the ones who provide the least proof themselves.
*Anti-proof for anti-truth… it’s the wave of the future! But like the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, you always have to keep your eyes open for those who are still hung up on things like science and facts and annoying stuff like that. 😉
*This is the modern world. Make spurious claim, assert that others are lying, then when presented with facts that dispute your claim, conclude that you were correct about other people lying! 🙂 FYI, there was no episode yesterday… there will be one tomorrow and Saturday though.
*I’m a math and programming geek… so recursion is a fun thing for Buzz to accidentally be doing. Let’s see if we can make sninekings a thing! 🙂
*Continuing to set the precedent of establishing Precedent’s Day on President’s Day since 2015! 🙂 Also, just letting you know I haven’t forgotten about the alternate-universe Al.
*When I was a kid, I definitely remember one year where we actually did leave the Christmas decorations up all year so that they were already up by the time the next Christmas came around. This strangely seemed to really bother some people.
