before i wake today, my blog will achieve 100,000 career hits. to celebrate the occasion i've, using a green sharpie and scratch paper, handcrafted this special sign for the lucky person who metaphorically rolls the old odometer.
the piece is entitled: the blogolution of blahblahblahler and while i encourage you to intepret the piece as you will -- i'll give you a hint: the smiley faces in the five zeroes represent the five phases of my mood toward blogging in the past almost-three years i've been online.
i've signed it.
the piece is yours, including a first edition framed photo of me giving you a cheerful thumbs up, if you are no. 100,000. good luck!
and for the hundred some of you who don't win tomorrow, please take pleasure in knowing that i have some grand new plans for the direction in which this site is headed. for instance, i'm thinking of walking the length of duluth or developing a taste for shittake mushrooms.
whatever. eventually i have to get off the couch. and when i do, there will be some exciting new features!
