Ok, so if you're reading this, you're reading post #501.

Hot. Damn.

Should I write about how much I've enjoyed writing? How keeping this little blog helped me through a job transition, an endless house-hunt, an exploding puppy, the loss of my father, a mid-season move and two long audition trips? That in writing this I've made and lost friends, gained and lost the same 10 pounds countless times, grown a little older and hopefully a tad wiser?

I probably should.

But instead I kinda just want to bitch about the cold, talk about how this "Crusoe" show that I'm watching is really pretty terrible but the actors are exceptionally good-looking, grumble that my hairdresser totally butched me, (Seriously, it's the same hairdo that I had in the late 70s. When I was in first grade. Thirty years ago. Come ON.) and praise See's candies for making the best coconut buttercream ever.

But I'll split the difference...while I won't wax about the reasons that I started this blog or bitch about the lack of hair on my neck while it's 40,000 degrees below zero, I will say a hearty and heartfelt thank you to those of you who read this, even when the content is, well, quite thin. (I know, you're thinking "Hey, isn't the content always thin?" The answer is, of course, "Yes.") Thanks for the comments, the validation, the reality checks. I appreciate that you've joined me on this journey, even though one of us obviously left the map at home. :)

And yes, I'm looking at you.

My five:
  1. Blog-readin' friends.
  2. Having a warm kitty curled up on my lap.
  3. Eschewing the "scene" for a bath and early bedtime.
  4. Gift candy...it tastes so much better than the candy you buy yourself.
  5. Sore muscles.
