Oops, I did it again

I missed another blogging milestone.  My 400th post was like five posts ago.  Now that’s either really impressive, or kind of sad in that I haven’t seen the sun in so long I’m almost as white as Edward, but not as sparkly.  I’m going with impressive.  Woot.  And to further celebrate this achievement, I have made a doodle for everyone.  No, not that kind of doodle, this one.

Look at meeee!

Look at meeee!

If you’ll notice, I made it in patriotic colors, so that you would all know I am an Amer-i-can.  I am so hot, I write the word color without the “u”.  Speaking of weird letters, that’s a four up there, not a “y”, though I realize it looks a little more like I’m saying Yoo than 400.  Let’s see what my pals have to say about my milestone.

Yeah, post it, what difference does it make?  Sighhhhhhhhhhhh.

Yeah, post it, what difference does it make? Sighhhhhhhhhhhh.

Thanks, Sad Pony, I can always count on your support!

Alice made 400 posts and i just ate 400 nuts all at one time and now I think I'm gonna explodes all over the place so watch out!

Alice made 400 posts and I just ate 400 snickers bars to celebrate and now I think I’m gonna ‘splode all over the place!

Please do so outside, in the trees, Squirrel.  Ignore that couple up there.

Has anyone seen our mother???

Has anyone seen our mother???

Haha, aren’t my Things cute.  Now get away from the computer, Momma’s busy.

In honor of your milestone, I am going to give Ana 400 smackings!

Christian: In honor of your milestone, I am going to give Ana 400 smackings!
Ana: Yay!

Both of you, go away.  And quit haunting my nightmares too.

Get down and do 400 push-ups now, Alice!  NOWNOWNOWNOWNOWNOW!

Get down and do 400 push-ups now, Alice! NOWNOWNOWNOWNOWNOW!

Holy Crap, who let her in?  I think that’s enough celebrating for now.  I also have an update on the TLC poll.  So far “My Secret Addiction” is edging out “Sex put me in the ER” by just one vote!  Okay, so the most votes went to “Read a book” but pfft, like THAT’S gonna happen.   Anyway, I realized I should have also added an Other category, because several people brought up other incredibly insipid shows including “Sister Wives”, “Secret Princes”, “Gypsy Sister Weddings”, “Morons from Hades”, etc.  Oh, the decisions!  Anyway, if there’s one you want more than another, be sure and vote, even if you’re voting twice.  I don’t think the poll notices.  Or you can always put in your write-in vote.

I haven’t forgotten about my Behind the Fairy Tale series.   Stay tuned for “The Little Mermaid”, a story about everyone’s favorite bubblehead.

Anyway, have you guys reached any insignificant milestones lately?  Tell me in the comments below!

  1. I just found out that 50 Shades of WTF has replaced “Flowers in the Attic” as the trashy book for high school girls to read during class. Can you imagine what the teachers are thinking? “I teach Shakespeare and this is what they choose?”

    I hit a follower milestone recently. Spam followers are awesome.

    1. I’m pretty sure at least a third of my followers are spambots. And another third are cats. Ugh, 50 Shades is worse than Flowers in the Attic. At least VC Andrews could write better than a 5th grade girl.

  2. eee gads. Jillian Michaels! I’ve done the 30 day shred several times and each time I do it, I feel like hurling myself into the television and kicking Jillian’s militant arse. That woman knows how to make exercising the worst part of anyone’s life.

    Congrats on your 400th post, Alice!!!!

    1. Thanks, Rae! Yeah, I actually watched an episode of “The Biggest Loser” and wanted to smack her. “Oh, yeah, I rip people’s emotions to shreds so that they can get skinny, which is all that matters!”

  3. Happy 4oo! I forgot the wedding anniversary of my parents, counts that too?

    1. I forgot my own anniversary. Whoops.

      1. oh… but now I feel a little better :o)

  4. I think I have 50 posts as a mile marker coming up. If I ever get around to posting anything that is. At least I’m now caught up on the backlog.

    1. Like I said, having 400 posts is either good, or bad in that I should really get out more. Ha. Thanks for being such a loyal reader, faith.

      1. I remembered a sort of milestone of mine. Not a good one tho. My Gran died at that start of December. That’s one of the reasons I’d not been around so much. But I’m back now! Question is, do I hope that someone comments on your blog more than me?

        1. Yay, we can make it a contest, then I’ll get lots o’ comments!

          1. But I’m allergic to contests like that. Plus it seems to be a bit like what a certain persona non grata used to do…

          2. Ew. Yuck. Yeah I’m not into contests that much. Too much work!

  5. Congrats! Let’s see milestones? I have managed to go my entire life without eating egg salad.

    1. You can do it!
      We believe in you!!!

      1. Yeah, Guap and I will be your sponsors.

    2. Me too! Zomg, we really do have so much in common!

      1. Maybe librarians are nauseated by egg salad…

        1. Who isn’t? For some reason this reminds me of a story I read about a librarian who found a jar of pee in the shelves. Our jobs are truly fascinating.

          1. I can see the connection. They are! And that you need haz mat suits to deal with some of what (sick) people do in the stacks into magazines.

          2. Ewww. You know we used to carry Playboy – at a university library. WTF. And the annual often showed cute pics of guys reading Playboy – like aw, aren’t they adorable. And, even worse, we had a Playmate guy and girl of the year for a short time.

          3. hee hee – now you can get all your porn on the intergooglenets.

  6. Yay for 400!

    That means that I have been reading your blog since the very beginning. I just now realized that.

    I have gotten a bit more “serious” about my blog over the last year, gaining about a quarter million more page views and having gone over 1200 posts during that time.

    I look forward to watching alice at wonderland grow even more!

    1. Wow, 1200! I guess I have some catching up to do. 😀

  7. 400?
    It feels like more, for real, I feel like I’ve been reading your blog for 10 years or so, which can’t be true, because 10 years the internet didn’t even exist.
    Just like Easy, I forgot my wedding anniversary, now I’m deep sh*t.
    I gotta read your previous post and see what poll is about.

    1. Oh, yes, do vote in the poll! I need more votes. Don’t vote for the book – I can’t make it through an entire Cosmo these days.

  8. Isn’t Sad Pony happy about anything? I mean, I know his name is “Sad Pony,” but he has to experience some moments of joy.

    1. He almost smiles at two things. Miss Four Eyes, and Squirrel – when he falls out of a tree.

  9. Congratulations on 400! I’m way behind you.

    My milestone is that I made it to work today! Yes, I do that every day, but I’m always surprised when I don’t go just a little further and hop a freighter.

    I’d like to add “The Plant Whisperer” as an other choice.

    1. Oh, man, that’s a milestone for me every day too – partly because dropping the kids off at school in that traffic is THE HORROR THE HORROR.

      Wait, there’s a show called The Plant Whisperer? Why am I surprised?

      1. Actually, The Plant Whisperer popped in my head while I was watching Dexter (episode 1) on the commute in today. Yeah, the one about the serial killer as hero.
        this followed me watching all of Breaking Bad – the one about the met dealer as hero.
        After reading your post, I was thinking about other probably ridiculous shows, and “The Plant Whisperer” popped into my head, along with a few others.
        I could only mention the one here, as I may use that as Friday’s poll question.
        Now you know some of my creative process!

        And I don’t know if that information is useful at all, but now it’s in your brain and you’re stuck with it! 😀

        1. Ah, can’t wait to see your poll. It’s hard to think of a show more ridiculous than TLC has already done.

          1. Sadly, I think they’ll manage to outdo themselves yet again next season.

          2. What trashy thing can we find next? Sumo wrestlers that love too much, and the exercise balls that love them.

          3. I vote for Sun worshipping albinos!

  10. I made it to work today. Considering things, I’d say that’s a milestone.

    1. Always. Always a milestone.

  11. My milestone is that I have watched exactly zero seconds of TLC. Sadly, it can only go downhill from there.
    Congratulation on 400 posts! But I have to say, your red, white, and blue doodle made me think of French flag for some reason. Of course, there are 40 or so other countries with red, white, and blue flags, so I never get why people think red, white, and blue color combination makes them patriotic.

    1. Noooo, only the US of A has red, white and blue, you communist! Other flags don’t exist! 😀

      1. Let’s just say that all the other countries do not exist. That would automatically make USA number 1!

  12. I don’t think this is a milestone – well, wait – maybe I have 2 things to share. I haven’t had an Exorcist moment in a little better than 24 hours now, which hopefully means I’ll be back at work tomorrow. (though I did take a big ass bite of a totally green banana that may upset the balance of the Force in my gut) Anyway, for some reason, I also dreamed about a naked help desk technician and John Candy wearing a Batman mask threatening a theater I worked in. Just a tiny bit odd, even for me.

    1. Exorcist moment – lol. I know how you feel, sick IS awful. Lol, you should blog about your dreams. Sounds fascinating. Might make a good show for TLC. “Naked Help Desk Technicians Survival – Batcave Edition”

      1. I would, but I only ever seem to remember 10 second chunks and not sequentially. So I’ve got a flash of a naked kid (20 something, kid to me) in a desk chair answering a phone, and then John Candy’s face on a old tube screen mounted to the wall, and then me climbing some kind of bizarre spiral ladder thing, calling the campus security emergency line from an old fax machine… Totally weird, even for me.

        “Batcave” is making me think of boogers.

  13. Congrats on your 400th! And the Christian and Ana thing had me giggling as I read the rest of your post lol 😀

    1. Oh, good. Honestly, I don’t advocate hurting any woman, but – she likes it and she’s so stupid!!!! Never facepalmed while reading a book so many times, ev-ah.

      1. I would never advocate that either, and I still haven’t read those books yet, but from what I’ve heard, she does sound rather stupid!

        1. Unbelievably stupid. I’m like even I want to smack you now, you dolt. You kind of go from hating Ana enormously to hating Christian, then you hate them both, and the plot even more . . . oh it’s in my recaps, if you could stomach them. The second book recap is me interviewing the characters – I had fun with that. 😀

          1. I’ll definitely have to check that out lol.

  14. What a great post. Thanks for the laugh-out-louds. Loved the Edward joke and the Thing 1 and 2 joke.

    Congrats on 400 posts! Wow, that’s impressive. Like you, my milestones come and go without me noticing. In fact, I don’t recall how many posts I’ve written. I only know that I need to get my butt in gear and write another one…

    1. Thanks. I always enjoy your posts. How close are you on finishing the latest book?

      1. I finished my book. It’s in the agent-querying phase now which is a painfully slow process. I’m currently researching for my next one. I’ll start drafting a story line soon.

        1. That’s great – about finishing, not the agent stuff. You’ve probably mentioned what this next book is about on your blog, right? I’ll have to check later.

          1. No. I’m still keeping it mum’s the word. This need-for-privacy thing for me is really quite ridiculous. 🙂

  15. I hope your Squirrel had a wonderful Squirrel Appreciation Day yesterday. I’m unaware if Sad Poneh Appreciation Day exists or not….

    1. Well, it really should. Maybe he might not be so Sad Poneh. Also, I think they should both be declared national holidays so we can all get off work.

  16. I yawned 10 times in under a minute.

    1. I think I’ve done that during meetings. There is probably a Guiness Book of World Records for yawning. Did you know there’s now a show where idiots try to beat the dumbest records of all time, like eating light bulbs? And it’s like, not even on TLC!

      1. Did you ever see “Hurl”? People eat massive amounts of food and then are tortured…whoever pukes last wins! It was on that man channel..

        1. OMG, no, I haven’t seen that – wow, we are such an impressive species aren’t we?

          1. It was pure magic to behold. I think it lasted one season.

          2. That reminds me, I do so miss Fear Factor.

          3. OMG! baby B and I loved that show! Reindeer peen! Yum!

          4. Husband and I watched it all the time – guilty pleasure. Loved watching the cutesy girls having to eat the spiders.

          5. Or lay down with them. Ugh. No way.

  17. Um, not because of your post, but because I am tired.

    1. Well, my post wasn’t terribly exciting, I would not blame you, WT. 😀

      1. As fucking if, WT! You rarely make me yawn. 😀

  18. Er excuse me – I’ve heard of ‘My Secret Addiction’ but ‘Sex Put Me In ER’??? I HAVE to check that out immediately.
    400 posts is a crazy number, and one you should be infinitely proud of. My recent milestone is turning 29… more of that on my post tomorrow!
    And Jillian Michaels can do one.

    1. I have a feeling there may be crossovers between “My Secret Addiction” and “Sex Put Me in the ER”. I

  19. Amer-I-can! I introduced Princess Fartypants to Drop Dead Gorgeous last weekend. Is that a milestone?

    1. Oh, my. Did she like watching the girls explode? My favorite part is Denise Richards dancing with the wooden Jesus on a cross lol.

      1. The thing with the cross took some explaining…

  20. 2000 unique downloads of my crochet patterns on my Raverly store. (humble blush)

  21. Can’r wait to see which show wins. Congrats on 400 and change.

  22. Congratulations on reaching 400 posts! That’s a fun milestone, nice big round number, plus it means if you read one of your posts every day you’d be set for over a year. Good times. 😉

    1. Yes! You may now read me every single day, dj. Yay, you!
