Holy Milestone, Batman!!

This marks my 200th blog post. I know.

Believe you me, I never expected to get here. Honestly, I probably would have expected to get to 200 words and call it quits. I’m sure you find it hard to believe, since I’m normally so long winded, but it’s true.

My thought would be that I would have a really great post for such an event. But that’s just not the case. This will be a mish-mash of random crap. You’re welcome.

I recently purchased an electronic drum kit from my friend Dave, a.k.a. the worst friend ever. Shortly after, I had my friend, Brian, over and he spied it with his little eye sitting unassembled in the corner. He was horrified that such a thing could happen and demanded (read: hinted repeatedly) that it should be set up.

I allowed him the pleasure. Partially because he really wanted to, but also because I had no idea how to do it myself. Truth be told, I was planning on calling him or Dave to help with the process when I got the inkling to do so.


Now I just got to learn how to use all four limbs independently. Not going to be easy. But it will make music day much more interesting!! You know, when someone that can play drums comes over.

Throughout Brian’s visit, and his follow up visit to make sure I could use my set up properly, he brought a little friend of his. His name is Hank. And he’s a dog. During this visit, Brian also taught me something:

Hey Hank

Yeah, that’s right. I gif now. When I was trying to determine if my EZ-post-it software could upload gifs to my blog, I discovered that it was going to be my 200th post. I promptly unpublished it and decided to make it the most epic, memorable post of all time.

And then I sorely disappointed my readers. I’m sorry.

In an attempt to make it up to you, and also practice my new found gif skills, I made something for you that shows exactly what I was thinking when I posted my “Hey Hank” trial.

200posts - animated

And that monstrosity is my 200th post.

It’s bound to get better from here.

Thanks so much for your support, or at least for keeping your judgment to your inside voice.


  1. UPDATE - and as it turns out, this is blog post 199. I guess I still have one post to make up for this! :)

  2. I expect epic gifage for the real 200!

  3. I expect epic gifage for the real 200!

  4. Awwww wait a second, I was going to congratulate you, but 199 is no milestone. Forget it.

    Okay, fine, congratulations! Also, it's good to see you're using your new gif powers to shower us with profanity (not that I mind, I just think it's funny). Now maybe you can settle whether we pronounce it with a J sound or a hard G sound.

  5. This is way better than the 200th post will be unless you post a Hank picture in post 200!

  6. Almost congratulations to you! And I still find it funny that one of the labels in your sidebar appears to say "spooky syphilis"

  7. Happy 199! I don't suppose in the real 200th post you'll have an animation of you ninja fighting all of your bad online dates, will you?

  8. happy gif making! this opens so many doors...I think...

  9. Anna - there was only one... but I think it's hilarious!

    Pickleope - I pronounce it like gift only without the t. But I've been known to be wrong once or twice before.

    Hank - I didn't!!!! Whaaaaaaa...

    Gorm - thanks... except for the syphilis observation.

    Beer - I didn't!!! Whaaaaaa... but oddly enough, I do mention a ninja in my 200th post. Eeeeerie.

    Poke - it sure does. I still don't know the power of gifs though...
