Coundown to 1,000

So I noticed the other day that I'm rapidly approaching my 1,000th post here on The Verdant Dude.

Before this post, I was sitting at 958 posts. And with some quick math, I have 42 posts to go before reaching the magical plateau of 1,000. Then I noticed that November 18th is 43 days away, so I thought it would be a good idea to try to synchronize the two events so that my 1,000th post happened on November 18th.

What's November 18th? It's not on your calendars? C'mon sheeple, it's my birthday!

Well, I'm going to have to ramp things up here to make this work. I usually post 5 days a week, eschewing posts on the weekends. Why? Because I really don't read blogs on the weekends, and judging by my past attempts at weekend posts neither do most of you.

But I'm going to do it. Even if it's just a lazy blogger YouTube clip or a joke I've heard or a haiku. Scratch that...it won't be a haiku. I suck at those.

Complicating matters, I'm going on vacation ("Very exciting...as a luggage problem!") smack dab in the middle of all this, and I usually don't post daily while I'm away. So I'm going to have to do some planning ahead. And I hate planning ahead.

But I've set this arbitrary deadline, and I'm sticking to it!

So, um, any post suggestions? I'm not above using a meme or twelve to get this done.

Note: Remember to play the Badgerdaddy Trivia Challenge every day. 1 down, 41 to go. Phew!

Verdant Earl said...

Holly - HOLY CRAP!

LegalMist said...

Wow, can't top Holly's ideas. I don't think you need a meme at this point!!

Faiqa said...

Can I borrow Mrs. Hall, please? Also, I would be happy to do a guest post for you while you're on vacation. You're welcome and you don't deserve me.

RW said...

No. No, I don't actually...


hello haha narf said...

i don't even post at my blog and you want me to give you ideas of what to write about? sheesh!
well, since you asked...i'mma have to say sex. 43 days of sex. pictures welcome.

Avitable said...

What about 30 days of truth?

i am the diva said...

you could beg your bloggy pals to guest post for you... that seems to work for a lot of people

Water Logged Canine said...

Deck the fuckin' Halls!

Holly, just sacrificed her benchmarks to help you achieve yours. I read that, and basically, 1000th post?


Let's celebrate with riding crops and black lights. I'll let you come up with the rest.

Heff said...

One thousand blog posts
an amazing blogger feat
Earl is productive

Verdant Earl said...

LM - I think there are a few memes somewhere in Holly's list that I could start.

Faiqa - I appreciate the offer, and I totally don't deserve you. But I don't really enjoy guest posts all that much.

RW - And here I was...counting on you.

Becky - 43 days of sex does sound nice. But I think I'll keep the pics to myself.

Avitable - You're funny! (If you haven't noticed, I'm not a fan of that particular meme)

Diva - See comment to Faiqa above.

Doggie - Maybe some good techno/industrial music?

Verdant Earl said...

Heff - It just kinda happened.

Avitable said...

I have noticed. You're just not a fan of that type of honesty?

Verdant Earl said...

Avitable - It depends. I don't mind them every once in a while. I think they are more powerful that way. One after the other becomes tiresome for me. I still read them, but I'm just not likely to comment.

sybil law said...

I'm pretty sure Mrs. Hall covered it.
So... yeah... I'll just go over... there....

Bruce Johnson said...

Just bear in mind....quantity does not always translate to quality. (and there is no way that Mrs. Hall, typed all that, it must have been cut and pasted.)

Verdant Earl said...

Sybil - Hi.

Bruce - When was there every anything of quality here? And yeah...I think that's pretty much Holly's mind up there in her comment. It's too awesome not to be.

Kevin Spencer said...

Seems that time of year is quite popular for birthdays. Mine is November 24th. I'll have a beer for you mate, and you can return the favor 6 days later.

Mrs. Hall said...

NO BRUCE--I typed it out all by my own self. It took about 15 minutes because I have the ADD brain. It is a fast brain. And can brainstorm like no other.

Then THEN, after I typed it out . . .

and clicked on the submit button, it said, "GOOGLE ERROR COMMENT TOO LONG" and I just about fricking plotzed. I worked hard on that list!!

but the comment went in!! HAA AHAAA!!

Mrs. Hall said...

oh and one more thing Bruce, when we discuss a mad men episode, who writes 7-9 full paragraphs of indepth analysis? all within like 5 minutes of getting your meager 3 line analysis?


me, that's who!!

cause i'm the shizzle!!

Verdant Earl said...

Kevin - Glad to do it. A pre-emptive "Cheers!" in your direction.

Holly - I never doubted you. And you remembered that I watched Jersey Shore and dig nerdy girls. Well done!

marty mankins said...

1,000 posts? Nilsa just celebrated her 1,000th post today.

Guess I need to clear my calendar between now then to not only come here each day, but also to be here for the big shindig on Nov 18th.

Poppy said...

How am I supposed to remember that November 18 is your birthday if we're not friends on Facebook?!??!????!???

Verdant Earl said...

Marty - We'll see if I can stick to a schedule.

Poppy - I'd have to join Facebook first for us to be friends. And I won't be doing that. :)
