Post 3600 - Special Non-Special Post

Well, hello there, you glorious hunk of human, you.

Sorry I didn't write Friday night. My body pretty much shut down around 9:15. Slept for nearly 12 hours. Why does sleeping in on weekends feel so good, anyway?

Spent much of the day watching episodes of "Can't Pay? We'll Take It Away", a British reality show on Netflix about bailiffs who seize property from debtors, even evict them. A fascinating, compelling, even addictive show. It is up to season five in the U.K., but Netflix only provides the first two seasons, so I am not sure what we will do when we burn through the next few episodes.

We are at post 3600, not exactly the kind of plateau that merits a big mention, but I won't ignore it, either. As I have mentioned before, I have lost count of the post numbers of the years. I might think it was 3214, for example, and I'd just name the next one 3115, knocking 100 off the number for no reason other than my carelessness. The number of the post is not quite arbitrary. It is close to the actual number of posts. But it is not exact by any means.

I am curious about one thing, though: how many of you have been reading this blog since close to the beginning? It turns 10 years old this Fall, believe it or not. How many of you were "here" back in 2007, when I started this thing? If not the beginning, let me know you have been reading. Did you discover it recently, or have you been around for a while?

You can leave a comment on the post, write me privately on my Facebook, tweet me at @bevboy0223, comment me publicly on my Facebook, or email me here.

I am not sure how much longer the blog will last. I have no plans to stop it, but interest in anything can wane rather than wax. I have plenty of blog business cards here in my home office, and I would hate to see them go to waste, so I think I will be here for a while yet.

Special plans for Sunday. Will tell you about them tomorrow night.

See you then.
