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