    Default Bullwinkle, post here for that milestone

    Bullwinkle's going for the 1500.

    To tempt a post, I'd say insults or compliments are fair game....

    Being concerned about how many posts you have is stupid.

    793 for me. WOO HOO!

    Apparently, I'm not spending as much time here as I should be. My post count is entirely too low. Dammit!
    Stay strong, Edward!

    Well, well, well, here we are. One thousand, five hundred posts.
    Thanks graeme, for the fanfare. It's nice to be noticed.

    So I've been pondering what to post, now that I've got this thread just sitting here waiting for me. My first thought was to make a game of constructing a single sentence with the greatest possible number of "f-words", but that seemed a little unsuited for the occasion. (My champion entry* is posted at the bottom. If you can beat it, be my guest.)

    It's interesting that this thread should come along when it did, because I've been thinking about changing a few things in my life, and now might be the time to do it.
    It's been fairly obvious to me that I've been just coasting along on this board for some time, making a few jokes here and there, but not really contributing as a member of the community. I'm a funny guy and a good writer and I can do better.
    I joined this board right about the time Eddie went into rehab before the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame debacle. I'd been in recovery from alcoholism for about a year and a half at that time, and something compelled me to join this board. I don't know why. Maybe it was to help Ed out, or maybe someone else with a drinking problem who would benefit from knowing that there was at least one guy out there who hadn't been sober all that long and was taking it a day at a time, and still finding something to laugh at.
    Whatever. I dunno. I do know that when that little voice tells me to do something, I should do it. Whether the results are good or bad, it makes life interesting. Plus, the results are usually good. Like the decision to join this board. I've gotten to know a lot of wonderful, crazy people here. I think everyone here is extremely special. There's no one whom I don't like on this board. Even the occasional one-post trolls are fun. (And I've learned how to cremate a person at an outdoor barbecue, which may come in handy some day.)
    So anyway, the world kept turning and I've been sober for almost three years now, and Ed is out of rehab and on the road with Dave. He's had one slip which made me very angry, but he seems to be doing well, and I've just been coasting along.
    I find myself checking this board in the morning after the kids are on the school bus, and sometimes staying around all morning until it's time to go to work. Then I get back on this board after work and the kids are in bed. That's time I could be spending doing other things, but what? The little voice wasn't saying, or I wasn't picking up on it.

    My sister's funeral was ten days ago. Some of you already know that. It was a very happy funeral, the kind we'd all want. Especially considering she was only 49 and basically in good health. Never smoked, never drank. She got sick at Christmas and was dead in May. That kind of thing makes you think about your own life and mortality. Carpe diem, certainly!

    At the funeral was a very old man. A retired professor of English at the University where my dad taught. He and I chatted for a while about Shakespeare and Donne (two of my favorites) and then he asked me, "Do you want to write?"
    "Well, sure", I said.
    He gave me a theatrical look of innocence and said, "Well...do you need to borrow my pen?"
    And then that little voice in my head said "Hello? Anybody home? Are you listening to this guy?"
    And I got it. I think. Maybe. Whatever.

    So, I think I'm going to write a book. It will take some time. But I can make the time easily enough. Instead of logging on to this site and thinking of snarky things to say for a few hours after the school bus, I can turn on my word processor and stare at a blank screen and think of snarky things to say. Who knows? A book might come out. It might make a million dollars and be turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Whoopi Goldberg! I could be rich!! Wow!
    Or not. Who cares? It's a change, it's something new to try, and life will become more interesting through the trying.
    So if you don't see me around for a while, that's a good thing. It means I'm drinking too much coffee and staring at the little Microsoft Word paper-clip guy while I think of things to say, instead of staring at this cavalcade of little bouncing smileys at the bottom of this page and thinking of things to say.
    I'll still lurk here and check in from time to time. This place is too much fun.
    Wish me luck!

    B


    * Whoops! I almost forgot. Here's my champion entry for the "Most F-Words in a Single Sentence" contest. Can you beat it?
    "Fuckin' why the fuck are you fuckin' fucking with me, you fucking fuck?"
    Cheers!

    I knew you'd overcome the stage fright Bullwinkle.

    Congrats on the 1500, the 3 years of new life and the "fucking sentence" (I imagine it with a NY accent).

    Hope all goes well in your battle with the blank page, a pretty tough undertaking, but make sure you get round here whenever microsoft paper clip guy starts to piss you off.

    Take her easy buddy..

    Who the fuck do those fucking fuckers fucking think they're fucking with
    telling this fuck he can't fucking write what the fuck he wants?

    Oh yeah, and you're beloved here as well, as if the tribute thread hadn't said it yet.
    I mean, where's the parade for my embarassingly ridiculous post count!? No. It's cool.
    Wouldn't really want one and I know I've chuffed some huffs around here maybe. How
    do you think I broke 4000? And then there'd be the pressure of coping with my faberge egg
    addiction here in front of everyone. And that's not a knock on you knocking your demons -
    it took balls to say and do that. So I guess what I'm really trying to say is,
    Admin, can you hook a brother up with a new ID with a zero'd post count, please?

    Man, it must be nice getting all of this fanfare for 1500. I remember 1000, 1500, and 2000 being special. After that the almight 5150 has been all that's left for me and I hit that a while ago.

    Congratulations Bullwinkle, you funny fucker!
