A couple of weeks ago I mentioned I had two blog milestones coming up. One was my 100,000 unique visitor, which happened around mid-May. Now, a few weeks later I've managed to hit the other one. According to Blogger, this is the 1,000 post to this blog. So I think that's about it for my milestones for the blog for the foreseeable future. Unless I get my 1,000,000th unique visitor or manage to write 10,000 blog posts. And quite frankly, I don't see either happening anytime, well, ever.

This isn't me being the rate I'm going it would take about another 25 years to write enough blog posts to reach 10,000. And probably about 20 years to get a million unique visitors. If I'm still blogging in 20-25 years, someone seriously needs to shoot me.

Anyway, that's about all I have to say on that. It's cool, I'm happy to have made it to a milestone that a lot of bloggers don't manage. Not much more I can say.

Packing and prep work for Italy continues apace. It's an oddly much more relaxed prep than previous trips. Perhaps because we're travelling so light. And perhaps, weirdly enough, it doesn't feel like we're leaving on Friday. At least to me. Very odd.

Dups is also trying to persuade me to run for the Board of Regents. Deadline for that is Friday. So if I'm going to do it, that's one more thing on the list to get organized. I doubt my chances, but it could be fun to run a really weird campaign when I get back.

More later...

By wacky coincidence I hit my 1000th post yesterday - and I didn't even think to mention it in my blog. Congratulations! As for your mascot - he appears when I type the word thesis into my msn messanger window.... Good luck with your blogging. I tend to blog an entry/picture - so sometimes I blog upwards of 10 posts a day, but 9 of them are just pictures and a caption and 1 of them contains the actual blog - so in your case 1000 posts might actually represent 1000 posts, while mine is more like 1000 pictures... and now I'm rambling in your comment box to procranstinate.. so away I go.

Good to see some Prince in the rotation.

Congrats on having a blog people actually read!
