501 - An original.

I'm liking the post title. Really I am. Excuse me a moment while I admire it just a bit.

Oh, here...

Wordle: Being myselfI'm not sure how to make that bigger without making it grainy...so here's the link.

It was fun. I thought about pasting something from my blog, or a story, but then decided I'd just talk about me. Not necessarily one of my favorite subjects, but it was fun.

So. Guess what??
That last post -- the one about the Gondola?? It was my 500th post.
Oh. My 4th blogversary is coming up, too. That'll be fun.

So - if you're still out there reading. What should we do for my 4th Blog day? What should I have done for my 500th post? I'm not writing 500 things about myself.

Even if I don't know what I'm going to do with all this celebratory goodness -- I know I was going to go back to where it all started. Which was on the Yahoo blog experiment. My friend suggested I switch to Homeschool blogger. So I did. Here is, apparently, my very first blog post on HSB. From that blog to this one, I've met some wonderful people who have become friends.  What's funny? "Emma'smom" from my very first blog post is still inspiring me today. I love that about her.

Just yesterday she reminded me "The world looks better when you're looking at Yellow."
(And I'm probably not saying that correctly but it was close.)

OH!! I forgot! After I blogged about the gondola in the 500th post - I was reminded of something someone said on Friday night. I was listening to him through a webcast and he said something much like "The heat is up - but pretty soon you'll break your shell and become popcorn!"

I loved that. Not all corn turns into popcorn, either, I found out.
But I'm excited that all the heat and pressure will turn into something fun.
I certainly like popcorn.

If you have ideas about what we should do to celebrate - let me know.

sounds like popcorn - with lots of yellow butter - should be part of this celebration. :)

...What if I'm a salty kernel? :o)

Happy Blog birthday. I hope you have some ice cream and write a blog entry about how it all started. I'm so terrible, I never remember my bloggiversary. My blog must feel very unloved. :o)

Peace and Laughter,
