70th Post Extravaganza!

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW!!!! 70 Blog posts.  And it seems like only yesterday I was merely a Blogging spring chicken, wet behind the ears, who decided to thrust himself into the seedy underworld of this Blog-Eat-Blog hobby.  So how do you celebrate a 70th Blog Post? Personally, I wish I could afford to hire James Earl Jones and his ropy vocal cords to come over and read each post out loud to me. And then have him say “Sean, I am your father.”  But that will not happen.  In reality I’ll probably end up going through my regular Wednesday night ritual, which consists of shutting off my phone, going to the local Cub Foods, picking up a box of Kleenex and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, and renting Steel Magnolias from the Redbox. And after that maybe crying in the shower for a little bit, then laying in bed for hours upon hours, wondering why we were put here on this big blue marble that’s mostly covered with water. Well that really killed the celebration. 

But anyways, what a wild ride it has been. Think of all the hours I have wasted, either scribbling recklessly into a notebook, or plopped in front of a computer screen, when I probably could have been contributing something worthwhile to society.  Perhaps the next 70 posts will focus on some sort of humanitarian cause, but more than likely I will continue to spout off the cantankerous pustules of thought that haunt my brain. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Friday Fun Facts – This Day in History

Hello, my friends. <—That’s my John McCain impression. I had a bunch of food stuffed in my cheeks when I said that too.  Ah, June 25th. Much like yesterday, I got nothin’.  So let’s just take a look at stuff that has happened on June 25th throughout history, shall we?

-Last year, Michael Jackson died. He made Thriller, man. Thriller.

-In 1876, George Armstrong Custer was killed. To quote Wikipedia, “He wore his hair in long ringlets liberally sprinkled with cinnamon-scented hair oil.”  I couldn’t have said it better myself.

-In 1947, The Diary of Anne Frank was published.

-In 1966, Dikembe Mutombo, full name Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo, was born.  I’m sure he’s still out there somewhere wavin’ that big ol’ finger.

-Busy Philipps was born on this day in 1979. I like saying that. Busy Philipps. Busy Philipps. Busy Philipps.

-Farrah Fawcett also died on this day last year.

-Apparently it’s National Catfish Day here in the United States.

-On this day in 1950, the Korean War began.

-In 1949, Long-Haired Hare, starring Bugs Bunny, was released in theaters.

-In 524, the Franks defeated the Burgundians in some battle.

History is fun, isn’t it? Here’s some Doomtree.
