Crunchy Numbers:

The number crunchers at WordPress sent me my year end report a few weeks ago – Here are the impressive numbers.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. My blog was viewed about 96,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

In 2013, there were 10 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 198 posts. There were 12 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 12 MB. That’s about a picture per month.

My busiest day of the year was August 13th with 434 views. The most popular post that day was
FAQ: How long before the Narcissist misses me?

I’m not sure which group I am more tired of fielding/deleting comments from:

The Spell casters who claim that the “Great Wumba Bumba” can make the Narcissist come back for the readers of my blog, restore their broken relationships, return what was once flaccid to rigid sturdiness, cure baldness, restore fertility (refer to the ‘flaccid made sturdy’) make everyone ‘one big happy family’ again and clear up pimples.

I am told that my readers can contact “GWB” at this email or that phone number and, although it is never mentioned, I’m sure it involves at least 3 flex payments of $69.95….plus postage and handling… not included…subject to approval…void where prohibited….

The Minecrafters, now they don’t promise anything, most of the time they just want to tell me my blog looks fabulous and that it is easy to find. They like how it is set up and ‘where did I find my wallpaper?’

Pretty civilized for game players who just want to build stuff with blocks. The only exception is when they tell me my blog is “rift with spelling errors…..Really??!! You guys sit around and play games all day on the computer and you are choosing to tell me that my posts have spelling errors? Really? I am guessing that was a quote from an English teacher on someone’s essay and the gamer is venting.

My limited research tells me there is a Spell Caster Association with their own website, and just like the Academy Awards, they have a “Spell Caster of the Year Award.”

Just today, I had a comment telling me I could contact a spell caster (by yet a different name) in times of trouble.
Whoa! Don’t go there. I have Someone I can contact in good times or bad, 24/7, and He does not require logging into a website or 3 easy payments by credit card.

While that’s lovely that there are people whose job it is to reunite the narcissist with his/her supply, I am delighted that the N is gone, gone, gone.

I have a friend who is desperate need of a new LCD projector. It died during the first week of school – Could the spell casters help with that?
I have another friend who has no budget this school year whatsoever to buy books or supplies for her library.
Is there a spell for that?

Today I had a spam message:
“Where do come up with this stuff?” was the question they asked.
Where? Where indeed!
I lived it!  And, all the rest of you that comment here on the insanity of having “known” a Narcississt have lived it too!

Yep, I was right I missed my blog rolling over to 100,000 – but I wasn’t at work, I was at home, sleeping…..keep forgetting that when I’m asleep, the other half of the world is awake…..

I am fast approaching the 100,000 view/read on my blog!
I don’t have a witty acceptance speech ready – Will WordPress send me a congratulatory email?
I don’t even have a new post finished for the occasion…
I’m afraid that the momentous event will happen when I am work and I will miss it!
“Blog milestone” is not an acceptable reason for not going to work!

Deep Thoughts

 1.  I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2.  Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I take back all those times I didn’t want to take a nap when I was younger.

4.  There is great need for a “sarcasm” font.

5.  How the heck are you supposed to fold a  fitted sheet?

6.  Was learning cursive really necessary?

7.  Map Quest really needs to start  their directions on # 5.  I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8.  Obituaries would  be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9.  I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10.  Bad decisions make good stories.

11.  You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything else productive for the rest of the day.

12.  Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray?  I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13.  I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14.  I  keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15.  I think  the freezer deserves a light as well.

16.  I  disagree with Kay Jewelers.  I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17.  I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option…

18.  I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom, dehydration and hunger.

19.  How many times is it appropriate to  say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

20.  I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.  Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21.  Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty.  Pants?  Pants never get dirty and you can wear them forever.

22.  Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time  it is.

23.  Even under ideal conditions people  have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket and  finding their cell phone but I’d bet everyone can find and push the  snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24.  The  first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. 
That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

25.  Don’t blog an entire post without hitting “Save Draft” at least every paragraph or so.  Nothing sucks more than losing your most brilliant post ever when the computer freezes. 

26.  I get the biggest kick out of my husband announcing the sale prices in the Michael’s Craft store ads. 

27.  Why is it on the hottest day of the year, all the ice cube trays in the freezer are empty?  The “ice cube fairy” has a lot to answer for – or is she holding a grudge since the freezer does not have a light?

28.  Just when you think you’ve managed to eat without getting something on yourself, the last bite lands right smack dab on the center of your chest.
