A belated 12th Blogiversary to SEB.

It’s probably a sign that I’ve been at this blogging thing for far too long that I forgot, again, my own blogiversary. As of December 2nd, I’ve been running this blog for a full 12 years. You’ll forgive me if I take a moment to be impressed with myself.

There’s been more than one occasion in the past where I came close to packing it in — one of them not so long ago — and somehow I ended up changing my mind or finding a way to keep it going. This despite many lean years where employment was infrequent or non-existent. There’s been a lot of folks who have stopped by and hung around for awhile that I don’t see much these days, and there’s a few faces that have been here almost since the very start. To this day I am still humbled and amazed that folks drop by regularly to see what nonsense I’m babbling on about at the moment. I don’t have as much to say these days as I did in the past, but I still enjoy sharing whatever comes to mind.

Thank you for dropping in and participating. There are few other things outside of breathing that I’ve done for longer than this blog has been around. Who knows? Perhaps I’ll still be here pecking away at the keys in another 12 years.

And now here’s a completely unrelated picture that I thought was funny as shit:

  1. Les rules. May the bastardized voice of reason continue unabated for another 12 years or until Armageddon, which ever comes first.

  2. Congratulations!

    And to celebrate, here are 10 things I’ve learned from Les in no particular order.

    1. “Lots of people who agree with me said so” is not a legitimate argument.
    2. “The book that I read says that the book I read is right” is not a legitimate argument.
    3. Hate mail is not a legitimate argument.
    4. Just because I saw a “looks like” image, doesn’t give it meaning.
    5. Don’t send Les an email expecting he’ll suddenly share its imparted delusions.

    And on the lighter side:
    6. Don’t jump over moving cars, or jump into pools from a deck 50 feet above.
    7. Yes, uvulitis really is a condition.
    8. Yes, Les would trade a soul he doesn’t believe in for a TARDIS.
    9. There is no bad time of the year for a Santa hat.
    10. Cats can dramatically lower your score in a FPS.

  3. Congrats, and thank you for keeping this blog. I do realize it can be extremely difficult sometimes.

    I don’t comment much, but I read your stuff regularly and it’s pretty interesting. I’m pretty sure there are many other more or less silent readers.

  4. Happy Twelfth, SEB!

    Holy shit, I just realized this means I’ve been reading your blog(among others) for at least eight years. Fuck, no wonder I’m getting so fat….
