In Honor of My 800th Post: RECAP & BONUS


First, highlights from the last 99 posts, in which I. . .

. . . became an auntie (again) to this guy who turns 1 this week;

. . . survived Thanksgiving 2011 with minimal "Seraphic's Singles Game" points, and met Younger Sister's boyfriend (who is still very much around! I guess he likes our weird family);

. . . suffered two serious losses--one belonging to the mind, and one to the heart;

. . . reported for jury duty for the first time ever in my life;

. . . started a new side job (with unusual benefits);

. . . kicked off the summer barely clinging to my (altered) position at my full-time job;

. . . celebrated The Cat's 15th birthday;

. . . decided to "make lemonade" out of life's lemons (I think that has to be a new label from now on);

. . .  got rejected by not one but three prospective employers; and. . .

. . . came through a Hurricane/Frankenstorm O.K. 

Excuse me for a moment while I recharge my calico after all that linkage.
 

    
Second, any suggestions how to celebrate this milestone?

In the past, I've done the "ask Kate P anything segments," which I am more than happy to do again if blogreaders are eager to ask.

That said, a few months ago I did make something vaguely like a sort of tentative promise for the 800th post (read the comments) to brand-new-mama Angela Noelle.


So what does that mean for you, the blogreaders/blogfriends?


BONUS TIME!  I am raffling off a gift card to someplace/some-site pretty much anyone can use.

What do you need to do?  COMMENT, regarding one or both of the following:

1. Ask me anything (off limits: my real name, exact age/weight/address, workplace name/location--you get the idea).  Past questions/answers here (along with other meme responses).

AND/OR

2. Do you want me to sing, per Angela's comment?  If yes, what do you want me to sing??? (Keep it clean, people.)



Have fun!

I've enjoyed the "ask Kate P." posts, but my vote this time would be an audio clip of you singing. Anything from a mass or something else you are really proud of would be great.

I'd love to hear you sing! As someone who should never be heard singing, I'm so impressed with those who can really sing. Anything that you like, anything that you enjoy singing or that you feel suits your voice.

Congrats on 800 posts! That's one big, round number.

Thanks! I'm working on this--going to see if my dad is willing to do accompaniment for me. :)
