101 and counting

I guess that yesterday was my 100th blog post.  Today I thought I would throw it out there and say thanks to the guy that got me started.  I met this guy at work who was always on different websites and such.  Most sites were blocked out at the cubical place, so I was certainly confused how he could be reading the net so much.  Finally, our seats were changed (because it is very much like high school) and I found myself sitting in front of him.  Being my usual tactful self I said something smooth like, hey what the heck are you reading all day.  His reply and i paraphrase was, well I am reading blogs.  Hmmm, I say.  Blogs, huh.  (I am very eloquent).  Send me a few of those jawns so I can check em out.  From that day on, I started reading some blogs, some good, some not so good, some funny, some not so funny and some that are inspiring.  I read for awhile and then made a big decision to move to a different department at our work.  This new department was terrible and very slow, very very very very slow.. so I read and I read and I read.  I dug a bit deeper and found out that I can post from my trusty blackberry.. and I posted and posted and posted, here I am a new job, and 100 posts on this bloggy thing later.  I asked him a few times per week where his blog was and if I could read it, his reply was that he does not have a blog.  Lots of ideas and no blog.  Months later we have become better friends and even witty texting and e mail buddies, and now bloggy buddies... go check it out.  There's A Few Things I Haven't Told You.  Get over and read up.  Its still new, so you can get in on the ground floor.  

Scoobstein, thanks for getting me started, much appreciated.

Sidenote:  Actually posting from a computer is pretty kewl.  I can spell check and even tell the computer when to post.. wow.

oh and hey, happy new year.  Get on with 2009, and stick to those resolutions!
