9998 and a Hot Cup O' Fish-Ass-Juice

Hey! I think it's safe to say that my blog, this blog... this VERY blog... is going to have it's 10-thousandth hit at some point today. I say this with the arrogance that only having the counter sitting at 9998 can bring. Surely 2 people will stumble upon it looking for something entirely unrelated to what they thought they'd find. You'd think. ...Whether or not they'll return is an entirely different issue altogether.

Today is a dull, gloomy Thursday (see - I just summoned one hit) and I'm sitting at my desk at work, drinking a mug of hot green tea... only because it's good for me I might add. 'Cause personally, I think green tea tastes simultaneously like fish juice, and "ASS". Not to be confused with fish-ass-juice, which would just be unpalatable. Remarkably enough though, I've been drinking at least one green tea every day for about 3 or 4 weeks now, and I actually do feel quite good, and I don't know if it's related, but my skin has been quite nice. I've also been exercising ever so slightly ("stretching" and "moving" would be more precise) for at least a half hour every day for the past 3 weeks, as prescribed by my new chiropractor.

I've been writing, and not just blogging, though anyone who checks here even semi-regularly would have to notice a dramatic increase in activity in the ol' EBP Blog by now. I've been reading more. Listening to music more. Including more fruit in my diet (insert gay joke here) (no really, it applies). And just plain rationalizing things. I'm hoping it becomes my "Less Round, More Rounded" phase. I'm not going to detail exactly what the extra-curricular writing is all about, but let's just say it's my contingency plan for a more fulfilling career finally taking baby steps.

Yeah. Yay.

Anyhow. Good day to you. Lemme know if you're number 10,000.

A song because I love it. I may have even posted this before.

Piano Man - Brandy

Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)

Do you have a request book handy, I can flip through
I do, he said my name is Rodney, good to meet you
What do you wanna hear tonight he asked me
I said, something I can feel inside
I've got what you need know exactly, why don't we give this a try

[Chorus:]
Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word
Play me a song about love lost, that's another one everyone's heard
Strike up the band
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight

Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)

He played a song filled with sadness, I believed him
Each note was dripping with madness, I could see it
We were lost in the music, everyone knew it
Truth was in the air tonight
I could see all the faces, they thought the same
Won't you please......

Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word
Play me a song about love lost, that's another one everyone's heard
Strike up the band
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight (Mr. Piano Man)

Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)

[Bridge:]
He was going for hours, people crying showers
No one ever really tells how it is
I sang about hopeless,
cause everyone knows it, knows it
And it was so honest
Finally breathing some clean air, been through it and seen there
I witnessed all the pain
As the spotlight was fading, he just kept on playing

Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word
Play me a song about love lost, that's another one everyone's heard
Strike up the band
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight
We can have the whole world singing tonight (Mr. Piano Man)

Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for us (Mr. Piano Man)
Play a song for love (Mr. Piano Man)

LOL... I was my own 10-thousandth hit. How pathetic is that?

Did I mention I was going to have sex with the lucky hitter??

Ahh well... it's not like I've been building toward it as some momentous occasion.

*blows party horn* YAY!

Kudos John!

Alas I was 10022, 10023 and 10024 (soory if I am sku'ing your stats) as I was unable to post and atempted a refresh before I closed and reopened the browser...

So tell me, did you have sex with yourself? I hope you didn't give it away, cause you're worth more... hopefully you took yourself out dinner and a movie first... ;-)

Congratulations!

lol... no skewing to be done. It's not something I watch with bated breath.

I did have sex with myself. Because I'm so easy, and I don't have to call me in the morning. Heck... I don't even have to worry about condoms or sweet talk. I don't know why I bother having sex with anyone else. ;)

And thanks Kevin! :)
