Post 100.1

I have severe brain strain going on. So much so that I think the internal workings of my bonce now resemble what appeared on my plate at the local greasy spoons cafe last week. It wasn't pretty. Or particularly edible.

This is my 100th post (on this blog) and for some reason I've felt that I should be writing something rather splendid in order to celebrate this milestone. I didn't want to go the route of Here's a summary of the last 99 posts. I wanted to do something the stood out from the rest, maybe a unique story or something that people might read and say "Wow, that's really well written". A post with purpose. I think insightful is a good adjective.

Everything I saw, spoke about, heard or read was given the analytical treatment. Nothing quite seemed to match up to what I thought would achieve any of my desires. Everything appeared inadequate. Or more boring than watching paint dry. And I've done more than my fair share of that. Trust me, interesting it ain't.

Which got me thinking (whilst watching yet another coat of paint dry) why do we put so much emphasis onto things like this? Why does the fact that I've written 100 posts even need to be mentioned? I don't think there's anything special in this one. I happen to think post 96 was much better.

So, theories on a postcard please. And if you read here on a regular basis, please feel to leave 100th post comments. Especially those that haven't commented before!

I think people inherently feel a sense of accomplishment when they cross a milestone of any nature. The number 100 is a big one. Considering the blog medium, and the question you've posed, maybe it's just your subconscious at work telling you that the automatic response the crossing the 100th line is to be celebratory about it.

I don't know, it's 9:30am and I am not even awake. Tripped on my own feet two times on the way to work this morning.

Oh and i can send you Canadian flags in a shot glass if ya like. No biggie.

100 posts = 100 opportunities you've taken to successfully entertain and make people think - no small feat.
Celebrate - you deserve it!

Conflicted about post # 100, eh?
Well, it is an accomplishment (of sorts) so, congratulations!

Kinda late on this one, but the 'celebrate 100 posts" is always something that's baffled me a bit too. Or when people do their 1000th update on twitter. Nevertheless, I always feel inclined to mark the occasion too.
