483 and counting

Noticed recently that my 500th post is rapidly approaching. Should occur sometime around 2 and 1/2 weeks from now.

Here are a few ways that I am thinking of celebrating it:
  • Making my own bacon-infused bourbon.
  • Pretending like it never happened.
  • More kitten pics.
  • 500 random things about me.
  • Yeah, I was just kidding about that last one.
  • Seriously.
  • Finally posting an actual picture of myself.
  • Followed by my address, date of birth and social security number.
  • (Yeah, right)
  • A guest post by my hetero life-mate, Slyde.
  • An immediate retraction and apology on my part for Slyde's guest post.
  • Four words: Pants off, dance off!

So whaddya think?


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the prolific bloggers are doing it.

Just checked out that dance off site. Interesting.

hello haha narf said...

oh please make the bacon bourbon and send me some. not sure how that celebrates your 500th post, but it would be way cool.

or, ya know, the pants off dance off would also be phenomenal.

Faiqa said...

Photo!! Photo!! No. Wait. Pants Off!! Pants Off!!

Bella@That damn expat said...

How about a combo of the first thing and the last?

Michelle said...

I am going to go with requesting your photo!!!

Yeah, thats the ticket!!!

AND THE BOURBON of course!!!!

Happy day!!!

Since "Giving away free stuff" is not on your list, I vote for the actual photo of yourself. All the cool kids are doing it.

Kaye Waller said...

Forget the bacon and drink the bourbon. Yhen do the pants off thing, but do it with kittens and Slyde. Oh, and post a picture of it, too. I'll pretend like it never happened.

Zibbs - one of those non-Olson girls from Full House used to host the show on TV.

Becky - seems wrong to mess with perfection when it comes to Bourbon, but it's really, really good.

Faiqa - you want a photo with my pants off? Freak.

Bella - bacon-infused pants off dancing? Sounds about right.

Michelle- sorry, you only get one vote. Your choice of two invalidates your entire response. Sorry. ;)

Marty - I forgot about the giving away of free stuff. Hmm.

Steph - I think you just blew my mind. I think.

Seals said...

Of course, I'm voting for the pants of, dance off. It is Sunday. That's No-Pants Day* around here.

* Um ... not really.

Verdant Earl said...

ajooja - isn't everyday pants optional in your life? ;)

Mrs. Hall said...


you have been blogging for about 3 years and you are almost to 500 posts

I have been posting for EIGHT MONTHS and I have 225 posts so far. craziness craziness.
What does that mean? yikes

but, I vote for pants off but, um, not you pants off, men aren't really that attractive pants off. but shirt off maybe . . how in shape are you?

well, either way, a nice head shot of a smiling mr. earl with the kitties might be nice. :)

and funny joke about the 500 things.

very very funny ;)

Slyde said...

im gonna post a picture of you on my blog when you get to post 499...

just cause im a dick like that...

Verdant Earl said...

Holly - I was a slow starter back when I began the blog. You jumped in with both feet.

Slyde - at least you are admitting it now.

I vote for the bacon infused Bourbon, mm, bacon, wait I am meant to be eating healthy, dang just the bourbon then.

Verdant Earl said...

Mik - the good news is, you only use the bacon fat in the infusion process. Wait...that's good news, right?

Kate said...

Having just jumped on the Verdant Dude blog wagon, I'll be the bold one and say I'd find time to read perhaps 100 of the 500 random things about you..
Of course, kitten and Dude pics work for me, too.

Suzi Q said...

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it!

Bruce Johnson said...

Personally, I opt for #2....requires no work on my part.

~E said...

I vote for #6 and #11. AND if YOU do the pants off dance off and take a video of yourself...that's like killing two birds with one stone!
