1 year and 200 posts

On a self-congratulatory note: hooray for me! One year ago today, I entered the first, totally content-free post into this blog. For the first few months, I made maybe four posts a month. And then the ACT Ride came, and writing my memories of that event must have kick started something in my brain, because come September, I became a blogging fiend. I'll admit, it has been fun. I've met a whole bunch of good people through the blogosphere and gotten to know a few people from "the real world" even better. I've learned a lot. I've felt stupid more than a few times. I've also felt supported and understood more than a few times, which is pretty great. So, to the handful of people who come here and read my ramblings--thanks. I mean that.

Today I'm packing my bags and my drums into the ol' minivan for a journey west and north to the snowy metropolis of Minneapolis for a Buffali show. God willing, the weather will be relatively cooperative and my fellow drivers will be relatively coherent so that the drive to and from is uneventful. The show, I'm sure, will be great fun. We're sharing a bill with This World Fair and Le Concorde--I haven't heard either of them, so it'll be good getting to know new bands.

I feel like this, being my 200th post, should include something memorable to mark the occasion. So...uhh...how about a mildly embarrassing picture of me from college, during rehearsals for "A Midsummer Nights Dream"? Yeah, that about sums it up.

Have a great weekend, and stay warm!

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone. I did manage to keep the shiny side of the van up, despite nature's best efforts to the contrary (and I vow never to take another long car trip until this infernal winter is over). Great gig, too!

Now, onward with year two. :)

BLUSTACON - Always the red pill.

Sorry to be coming in so late on the congrats...but congrats anyway.

Emily said...

JT - How dare you! Uh...I mean, thanks! ;)

I should be back to posting again tomorrow. I may have press access to Obama-rama tonight, and intend to post pictures and an account here and at dane101.com if anyone's curious.

Also forthcoming will be an account of my rockstar weekend. Huzzah.
