Six Posts Away


Happy Tuesday Chickens!

This is post 494. In six posts, I will hit the big 5-oh-oh. What shall we do to celebrate? Should we mark the occasion in some auspicious way or should I just have you send me presents?

In the comments section below, write your idea for how we should celebrate this blogging milestone on ONIBlog. The winning suggestion gets the plaque pictured above, from here.

And remember: if you think too much outside of the box, you could get stuck in a circle. So for gosh sakes, be careful.

I don't know why you even ask. Of course we should send you presents. I'm offering a bottle of home made (silver medal winning!) strawberry wine. Just as soon as I can deliver it to you.

I want the plaque. Ok, think Brandy, think of something brilliant.

To celebrate your 500th post you should ....

I haven't slept in days and you know how I'm Mormon and you sent me coffee mugs but I don't drink coffee, but I put my soda in the mugs cuz I love them so .. well I'm out of caffeine in all forms ...

Frak. I just can't think of anything. And I may be PMSy. And my husband yelled at me before he went to work. And is working late. Again.

I've ruined everything. I'm sorry. Delete my comment and reject my opportunity to win the plaque.

I'm gonna go write a big whiny post now ...

I vote that we all post pics of ourselves toasting you. Not because I need an excuse to drink wine or anything...just um...because it's classy! Yes, that's it! Classy!

And then you could um, link to us, and we could link you and it would be like an internet party! Only we wouldn't have to wear pants!

A toast of latte with one of your wonderful mugs!

COngratulations!

We could celebrate by you teaching me how to do math. Because no matter how many different ways I add 73, 120, 177, and 72, I never get 494. But I've always been bad at math.

Bj in Dallas said...

its a trick. She's getting us excited so by the time she REALLY gets to 500, we'll all want that damn plaque.

supah ~d said...

Can anyone say " blogarita's..??"

Why wait til 500. Start practicing now! I am!

OHN said...

You need to invite us all over. I'll bring chips. (Don't you always hate the person that gets to bring chips and doesn't have to cook a damn thing?!)

Discrepancy is due to deleted posts. There was a time when I thought funny blog posts involved photographing stuffed animals together and writing a short story about them. One day those went in the trash (mostly.) I also used to let some former employees provide material for this blog. One, in particular, took her termination pretty hard and as a result her postings went bye bye.

Chandra said...

Why dont' we all blog about HER blog on our own blogs and link back to her blog...she'll get even MORE people to follow her blog...it's a win win situation for her and us!

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

I suppose the idea of you flying us all to a tropical paradise for a week of partying has been taken, no?

oh well. I'm out of good ideas. . .I REALLY had my heart set on a tropical destination with a tropical drink in hand. . .

Debbie said...

Seems like you could just travel around and visit all of us that have commented. Or, save yourself some time and fly us all to see you. Yes, that will work.

Why does Kreg always have to get all technical and shit? I'm on post 444, but I think today I will say I'm on post 9,234 just to make Kreg's head explode.

Congrats Mrs. V! I think we should celebrate with bacon. And wine.

Zakary said...

And, hello? Why was I not aware of your etsy shop?

Secrets don't make friends, Lorrie!

kwr221 said...

OMG, I LOVE your Etsy shop! I love the rustic pouting face vase, and the bluebirds of happiness, and the "you can do anything" cereal bowl and I could go on and on...

For your big Blogaversary I think you should meet us all in NYC! Well, at least ME when I'm in town this summer. (AUG 7th!)

Oh, and if you don't want to give away anymore free stuff, maybe you could give us all a code for free shipping? :-D

Love ya!

kwr221 said...

Is Thystle suggesting we post internet pics of ourselves with no pants?! Figures.

And ditto to Zakary, why was this cute shop a secret since January?

I think you should fill up balloons with laughing gas and put our names in them and pop one at a time until you can no longer stand the pain in your sides and then choose whoevers name you are up to at the time. You should also choose the smallest room in your house to do this so as not to waste any of this prescious commodity I call fun.
Oh yeah, if I don't win send me a balloon!
