Housekeeping (and, uh, Wow!)

According to the Delurking Week entry yesterday, at least 171 wonderful people (the count as of this morning) are reading. I don't know what to say, except sheesh! Sure, I am a comment whore but I also plan on using this for good. I know my current blogroll is a little, well, dated. I'd like to use the comments from the delurking entry to round it out and rebuild it a bit. So, get over there if you haven't already!

In the mean time, thanks. Thanks for taking time out of your day to read. I'm not always sure why you do, but I really appreciate it. I'm mystified, but touched.

Apologies for the uber-lame morning post. My Tuesday is chock full of meetings which I'm absolutely thrilled about (Tuesday is also Sarcasm Day, apparently). I promise something a bit more interesting later in the day. Until then, oh, I don't know - don't do anything I wouldn't do and don't take any wooden nickels.

I love Sarcasm Day. (which is nearly every day in my book)

And don't you just love when the opportunity presents itself to use the phrase "chock full"? Great usage! :-) (that wasn't sarcastic.)

Didn't want to get lost in the shuffle of 171. Just know that i am an almost daily reader, but not a daily post ee...

Hope your fatherhood days are long and loving! Nothing like a baby, my grandmother says quite often.

One hundred and seventy one readers.

I have seven who have de-lurked. I realize that these people are not my ONLY readers. But one hundred and seventy one?! I'm jealous.

I don't think I could make it through the day without any sarcasm! Or coffee by that matter. And no worries about any uber-lame posts...They're better than nothing to me! Good luck with the meetings...Don't do anything the 171 of us wouldn't do! :)

love love love, EVERY DAY is Sarcasm Day :)
Gros Bisous!

About that lurking. I comment often, so I hope I'm not included in the "bad" list.

And I hope you have a perfectly wonderful day.

171 - Wow! You should start selling ad space! LOL! Anyways, Happy Sarcasm day!

Posted by: Marie at January 10, 2006 8:28 AM

chris, it doesn't count if you leave the comments yourself.

Posted by: jodi at January 10, 2006 9:30 AM

I read because you're interesting, and because you have the cutest little girl!

And, so far, I've only had ONE person de-lurk on my site... Grumble...

Posted by: Jen at January 10, 2006 9:39 AM

How about realizing that you have seven hours of class tomorrow? Can you cry if you realize that?

Posted by: alektra at January 10, 2006 9:57 AM

sarcasm day is almost funner (yes, it is a word in MY dictionnary) than de-lurking day!


Posted by: wn at January 10, 2006 10:05 AM

Just over from "So The Fish Said"... sounds like you had a fun night w/ the missus!!! *grin*

Posted by: Corinne at January 10, 2006 10:08 AM

yay for sarcasm day. :)

Posted by: suze at January 10, 2006 10:10 AM

How 'bout: drive real fast & take lots of chances. I think I've figured out the wooden nickel thing.

Posted by: bhd at January 10, 2006 10:23 AM

Tuesdays are meeting days for you? Me too. I think because nobody would pay attention on a Monday and any later in the week then Tuesday and it's the WEEKEND, right?

Good luck making it through the day!

Posted by: Isabel at January 10, 2006 10:38 AM

Oh and do you have meetings about the meeting. I love those! :)

Posted by: Nik at January 10, 2006 10:51 AM

If it's sarcasm day, I'm SO there.

Posted by: VirgoJen at January 10, 2006 11:04 AM

If you ask me, there aren't enough Sarcasm Days in a year.

Ok so, you want me to go over to the DeLurking post and comment there??? Or is this good enough? I think it's good enough and you should too. :)

Hope you don't become hidden under all those meetings.

Posted by: Kate at January 10, 2006 11:51 AM

Sarcasm Day!! I love it. I hope your day is rotten!

Posted by: Ms. Q at January 10, 2006 12:06 PM

Ha! Your lame day is divine retribution for that sneaky thing you pulled last night! You should have called dibs and confessed before Beth could tell the internets on you...lol

Posted by: Jaycie at January 10, 2006 12:17 PM

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Posted by: JuJuBee at January 10, 2006 12:53 PM

You pretended to be asleep?

Posted by: wendy at January 10, 2006 1:42 PM

Really, everyday is Sarcasm Day for me.

It is quite fun!

Posted by: ash at January 10, 2006 2:13 PM

Ooo, I like the Sarcasm Day idea - is this an every Tuesday thing?

And I hope you have a good excuse for this uber-lame post. What, you didn't get enough sleep last night or something? Tee-hee.

Posted by: Beth in StL at January 10, 2006 2:18 PM

I'm a day late, but de-lurking just the same...nice to see you, Chris...sort of.

Posted by: Liz at January 10, 2006 2:47 PM

oooh, I never lurk. what's up with the lurkers anyway? too coy to comment? that's a whole new level of shy!

Posted by: Dawn (webmiztris) at January 10, 2006 2:53 PM

uuugghh, how do I get the buttons, am retarted. Noone will help me :(

Posted by: Bethany at January 10, 2006 4:31 PM

Wow. That's a whole lotta peeps. Very cool though. And did you see Beth's post for today? You're in deep doo-doo buddy. :-)

Posted by: Lisa B at January 10, 2006 4:39 PM

you totally faked sleep to get out of changing a diaper-- you will get the gross poo diaper just for that! all runny and stinky!! big trouble for you!

Posted by: 2faced at January 10, 2006 4:43 PM

Um... I just read Beth's post. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

Posted by: Steph at January 10, 2006 5:28 PM

I'm here! I swear! I'm just getting over jet lag that's all ;-)

Posted by: Kerry at January 10, 2006 6:37 PM

Are your ears burning, by any chance?

Posted by: Rhonda at January 10, 2006 6:52 PM

Consider me #172

Posted by: Tuesday at January 10, 2006 7:08 PM

HI! De-lurking just for the fun of it.

Posted by: Deb at January 10, 2006 7:20 PM

Am I a lurker? I can't remember. I read, but I don't think I comment much (if at all). I'm daunted by all the other comments before me; I'll get lost in the shuffle.

But here I am, in any case!

Posted by: suburban misfit at January 10, 2006 7:44 PM

sheesh, i dont think i would like that many peopl eto read me, i would feel pressured!!! but you do quite well with it all :)

Posted by: lizabetty at January 10, 2006 8:10 PM

yeah yeah yeah... screw you with all your frickin' faithful readers who comment EVERY SINGLE DAY.

(that was Sarcasm Day in effect...)

Posted by: misi at January 10, 2006 10:29 PM

Keep posting pictures of Mia and that readership'll triple... ;)

Posted by: Marilyn at January 11, 2006 3:07 AM

I love me some sarcasm! You will always be on my blog roll!

Posted by: Kelly at January 11, 2006 3:27 PM

So all we have to do is delurk to be linked? Does this promise come with a moneyback guarantee?:)
