Slight exaggeration ...

Sooo ... I said when the blog reached 10,000 customers something really cool would happen ... Uhm, yeah. It's a blog. Exactly how cool could anything be that I could actually do?

I guess the best I can do is award anyone who reads this before 3:07pm on Monday, December 15, 2008 20 golden stars. Leave a comment as evidence. Mmm-k? Maybe this isn't really cool. But I am confident you'll get over it. :)
However, now is time to honor my 10,000 customer.


Haley Wilson Cutler! Woot! Woot!

Haley is super-cool for many reasons. Of course, the top being she reads my blog. ;) Other reasons why she is cool is because: she ran cross country at LHS, she always has the most adorable shoes, she married Cam Cutler {not only was he my across the street neighbor, I always, always wanted him for my little brother}, she is one of the most genuinely nice people you will ever meet, she is funny, she dresses so cute, and technically, my car is named after her and her family!! Here's to YOU, Haley!

In honor of your accomplishment, I am awarding you with 50 golden stars!! AND: just because I am sooo entertained that you arrived at my blog when it was at 9,996 and came back four additional times to be the 10,000 visitor, I am awarding you 10 more!!

Uhm. Okay. The end.

Hmm ... There seems to be some confusion here. There is nothing interesting down here. I know you saw this text, and that's why you're looking. But I think it's only fair to let you know that this whole bit of text will be ultimately unfulfilling. Granted, you might feel that about other things I've written, but this time it's different. I'm not even trying to be interesting here. Just annoying. Honest. So, go read something else. Something more rewarding. A book about chickens, perhaps. I know, chickens may sound boring, but it can't be much worse than reading this prattle ad nauseum, can it? Besides, chickens was just a random example. I don't even know if there are any books about chickens. Well, other than "The Little Red Hen," "Chicken Little," and the novelization of "Chicken Run". But that's not the point. The point is ... uhm, hmm ... What was the point? I forget. Well, anyway, sorry to have thoroughly wasted your time here, and I sincerely hope that you find something more worthwhile to do within the next few minutes or so. {Which is more than I can hope more myself, apparently.}

Jo said...

Oohh can I have some stars too? I love stars!

Jo said...

Also, there are many more books about chickens including "Silly Chicken" which is my kids' new obsession. I think I will go read it, that should make everyone happy. =)

Animal Farm has chickens in it. And gold stars please. Unfortunately I can't remember if I voted for the red coat or not because I can't remember the other choices. So just the twenty.

Rhonda said...

I love you Mindy! I just voted that you have a pipe cleaner reindeer adorning your computer.....???

BreAna Palmer said...

MPk said...

20 gold stars? Where do I sign?

emily said...

Mindy, your blog is entertaining, I love it and I think you should write a book!

Cassandra Anne said...

Stars appear to be worth less than they used to be, you used to really have to work for your puny six stars, and now you get TWENTY stars for a mere comment, wit optional.

Stupid inflation.

Krystal said...

so I would just like to say that this is slightly not fair - I'm not able to access blogs or facebook (or anything else cool) from work... so I did not make it here before 3:07 grr.... then I spent 90 minutes hanging out at a dermatologist's office, because apparently I have nothing better to do on a Monday afternoon / evening. Whatev...

Allred Mom said...

I am so bummed! My husband has hogged the computer all afternoon and now I check your blog and find that I was to visit before a 3:07 mark! I think there should a conselation prize for those of us that are faithful and checking your blog everyday, even when we are late! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! I want some more golden stars! I'm feeling "Prattle ad nauseum" coming on just thinking about it!

Marie and Jeremy said...

Your blog makes me want to be single again. Your have so much fun! Don't get me wrong, I love my husband and child of course. Keep smiling!

Brandon and Erica said...

Dude! I just checked and HOLY COW...I have 38 stars from you! Thanks...not quite sure about how I got to that many...but, I won't question. I would be afraid you might take them away if I question your reasoning. If it is the text message convo, I'd have to say you give away stars too easily. Let me work harder for these stars! :-)

Whatever the reason, thanks..I LOVE STARS.
