The one with Post number 1000

Well it finally arrived. Sure, the last few posts may have been shite to fill up the post count....or were they???? Hmmmmm

Little did I think in November 2004 that I'd hit the Publish Post button over 100 times, let alone a 1000.

And yes, this was a big anti climax :)  These kinds of things never live up to the hype.

Not so long ago, nerds and geeks had waited 21 lifetimes for Star Wars Episode I. When it arrived, some died from the excitement, some got erections and promptly lost them when Jar Jar Binks turned up. It didn't completely live up to the hype.

Not too far from where I currently reside the Titanic thundered off on its maiden voyage and promptly drove into an iceberg and sank. James Cameron made a movie about it. And a successfull movie it was too. People flocked in their millions to see it, and when the boat tried to do its best Ice Breaker impression people just went "Meh, twas grand but what about Kate Winslets tits?" Again, it didn't live up to the hype.

My movie of 2008, The Dark Knight didn't live up to the hype either. As amazing as it was, people got themselves into a foaming tizzy about the whole thing, myself included. As I mentioned back along on TDK review, even if Jesus had turned up in a Batmobile it still wouldn't have been enough to live up to the hype.

Ya see, the mind is a wonderful thing. In my own feeble one, right now, I think that blog post 1000 wont live up to the hype. And of course it wont. Its a fuckin' blog post. Wheres the hype in that. Granted Ive built it up and as usual nothing lives up to the hype, because we build the thing up too much. But the most important thing for me, as the gobshite who writes this on a regular basis is YOU. Yes, YOU, the kind persons who drop by here on a regular basis and I'm genuinely happy that you are reading post number 1000. So, in the words of Andy Kaufman

"Tenk you veddy much"

The one before the big one

Y'all ready for the big anti climax. This is post 999. Who'd have thunk it? Yeah, I know. Nobody. Anyway, the big 1000 is on the way.

The one with a few to go

I reckon Ill make it to 1000 posts before 9pm this evening. Yesterday and so far this morning was spent looking after the nephew. Which was fun especially considering I didnt change any nappies. I never realised there was so much to take in when looking after a smallie. Granted he fell asleep for Phil Taylor's match in the Darts and pretty much most of the day and night.

Besides all that, the house is like one of those accidental bomb drops.
