Thank You


The Diarist award results are in and apparently you guys worked some kind of voting magic. I won! Look, I won't pretend that I have a clue as to why this little site of mine is at all popular or has any readers whatsoever. But I do have a lot of fun doing this...and even more than that, I've met some wonderful friends. Thanks to everyone who voted for me. More importantly, thanks to visitors old and new, those who comment, those who lurk, those who've stuck with me over the years or just found the site yesterday. You all, as I have said 2,394,750 times before, rock!

Chris you rock!! You are a daily addiction that is one of the most entertaining things I do everyday. BTW, thanks for the elbow suggestion on the last post. I have downloaded some of their stuff and some old Peter Gabriel Genesis (well some Phil Collins too). I love when you can inspire me to find new music. Thanks!

Tada! Sometimes it is that special charisma and heart that gets recognized. Congratulations.

Posted by: alektra at December 19, 2004 02:23 PM

Your site deserves it more than any other I can think of, especially since you really take the time out to respond to your readers. I hate how the people of some of the other popular sites out there can't be bothered. You've got this little taste of celebrity, yet you don't act like you're better than the rest and you appreciate your readers and their comments. That's why you deserve it. Oh, plus your site is funny as hell ;)

Posted by: RockStar Mommy at December 19, 2004 02:37 PM

Yay, Chris! Congratulations!!
