Historical 100th Post

February 18, 2008
Wasilla, AK

October 8th, 2008 was my first entry into the Cyberspace. I was skeptical about entering the foray, because I thought: What the heck do I have to write about? And, who in their right mind would want to read what I write anyway?

I had friends and family who had started blogs, who would ask me on a regular basis when I was going to start one. I would blow the question off - because of what I stated previously. There was also an underlying reluctance that tugged my creative juices, it is as simple as - well my therapist doesn't feel as though I've reached that threshold to openly share. Respect.

So - one day, my friend Steve invited me over to his blog. I had a read, a laugh, and decided to share a comment. That was the beginning of the end. That was in August - then I started getting e-mails, voice-mail, home-visits, and even a congressional invitation to start my own blog. I'm a strong man - but under such enormous pressure, I caved.

So here we are one hundred posts later. What are some things I've learned from the experience?

  • Chimpanzees make great pets.
  • Plagiarism is something made up by middle-school teachers.
  • Apparently you can see Russia from my house.
  • You can put a lipstick on a pig and bulldog and PETA doesn't care.
  • Comments are over-rated.
  • I still don't have anything to write about.
So - I hope that you remembered to bring a friend - it's kinda like an Open House here today and tomorrow. Additionally - starting Friday: EBL will be going exclusive. So please sign the Guest Book - then you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of EBL.

Just for a quick look-see down memory lane, here is the beginning of the end:

Moonriver!

One of my favorite sites has a weekly mugshot posting and this one is one of my favorites. Want a good laugh? Caption what he's saying. I'll get you started:




  • Moon river!
  • Officer, your hands are freezing.
  • I think my water broke.
  • Hey, how come the rest of the line-up has pants?
  • "Mama Mia". Best. Movie. Ever!
  • *Zip* *Cough*
  • Oooooh, shiny.

If You're Running Down the Hall, and you feel something fall: DIARRHEA

If You're Asked to take the Stance, and you fill up your Pants: DIARRHEA

If You've eaten sushi from the local quicky-mart, and drank 64 oz of Mt. Dew's AMP, and then went to the movies and got the extra large tub of popcorn with extra butter (layered), and snarfed down the spicy 1/4 lb Johnsonville Sausage with Jalepenos, then ate a box of Pop-TARTS, (inhaled breath)AND You were surprised by the SHARTS: DIARRHEA

I'm proud of you Robert. If this venture ever turns profitable, I'll be happy to say I had a hand in it and I expect compensation.
