Between the Thanksgiving festivities and the possibility of eye surgery, I almost forgot that today is the VC’s birthday. And not just any birthday, either. It was on this day back in 2003 that Matt’s superior spelling and grammar skills welcomed us online.
Yeah, 10 years. No, I have no idea how that happened.
When Matt set up a blog and asked me if I wanted to write on it, I thought it would be fun for a while but that eventually we’d both lose interest and it would just die like everybody else’s blog. But 3 or is it 4 designs, 5 commenting systems, 2 site addresses and a Carin later, here we are. About the only thing we don’t have much of now is Matt, funnily enough. He knows the door is always open if he wants to start up again though, at least I hope he does. If not I may just have to get in a few infights with him until he figures it out and starts writing about hockey again. He’s much better at that than I am. Yes, that was a compliment, my friend. No, don’t get used to it, douchesprocket.
I haven’t a clue how many people have visited here over the past 10 years, but it’s a lot. A hell of a lot more than I know any of us thought would ever possibly care. And to however many of you there are, thanks. Whether you’ve been a friend or a flamer (take that however you’d like), a regular or somebody who shows up a few times a year or even somebody that’s wound up in a You Are Here? the one and only time you dropped bye, you’ve helped make this place what it is. I don’t know what it is, but the help is appreciated.
Happy birthday Vomit Comet, and here’s to 10 more years…I hope! Now let’s all go celebrate! Who’s buying? It’d better not be me, ya bastards.
