100th Post! (Small milestones can be fun to reach too)

The only purpose of this post is to celebrate the fact that it is my 100th WordPress post. That’s it. I could load up a picture of the number 100, but I figured it would be more fun to load up a vintage pic. Here’s one of my brother and me that was taken sometime during the winter of 1975 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For fun, I’ve also included a “100” themed poll.

I got the whole family involved in making up answers to this poll. My husband’s was a little melancholy (a la Five for Fighting‘s 100 Years) so I omitted it. But my kids got right into the spirit of this post, as you’ll see. 😉

Here’s hoping that each and every one of you has 100 moments of pure, unadulterated bliss today! 😀

  1. Congratulations, Jill! Fun poll!! I had to go with visiting 100 countries before I die. I’d love to learn about different cultures first hand…what fodder for our craft!

    1. Aw, thanks Brinda! 🙂 I’m pretty sure I’m going to Atlanta. Haven’t yet registered, but likely will. I’ve had so much fun at other RWA national conventions in the past and I didn’t go last year. It’s great to interact with people in person. If I go, you’ll be one of the people I’ll be seeking out! 😀

  2. Maybe we, the readers, could propose some 100-themed choices of our own for your list. For example:
    …go into suspended animation for 100 years.
    …go on 100 first dates.
    …have a pile of 100 hamburgers.
    …drive 100 miles per hour to and from work every day without getting a ticket.
    …stay awake for 100 hours without getting tired.
    See? The list could go on and on. In addition, there could be some 100-centric questions that fall outside the list. Such as:
    Would you rather have 100 wives or 100 children? (substitute “husbands” as needed)
    You have 100 pets, all larger than mice. What are they?
    You have 100 minutes left to live. What do you do?
    Speaking of the previous question, name the 100 things on your bucket list.
    You are crowned king of the world for 100 seconds. What do you do?
    And so on. This could be your biggest post ever, Jill! Maybe there will be 100 comments.

    1. I love your list! Clearly you should have co-authored this post with me. Hmm… here are my thoughts on your list:
      … “suspended animation” always reminds me of Pink Floyd’s Learning to Fly
      … is “100 dates” the follow up to “50 dates” and, if so, who’s in it? I liked Lucy and Henry and hope they are still together.
      … I can’t believe *you* are suggesting #4 😉
      … the longest I have ever stayed awake was 48 hours. I cannot imagine 100, although the “without getting tired” part would be nice.
      … “100 minutes to live” sounds like the start of a good daytime drama (so long as it has an HEA ending :-))
      … Speaking of Bucket Lists… have you checked out Lesley Carter’s blog? (I always like to give her a shout out when I can. See my lower right side bar).
      … If I were crowned *queen* of the world for a day, the first thing I would do is swap Rip Van Winkle for Atlas. Rip needs some work to do and Atlas has been awake for far longer than 100 hours.

      And 100 comments? In my dreams! 😀

      On that note, I’m off to bed. Zzzzz……….

  3. I think it’s awesome. I just recently passed the 100 mark and I thought I was pretty proud of myself. You can be too!! I think it is quite an accomplishment, because we are putting ourselves out there for others to see. I would like to live to be 100, because I can accomplish all the other things if I live that long. ^_^ Great post and thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Sherry– congrats to you too! Living to be 100 would be grand. What was that George Burns’ quote? “If you live to be 100, you’ve got it made. Not many people die after that.” 😉 Thanks for the comment!

    1. Thanks, Patti! Seeing your kids’ kids’ kids would be the neastest thing. I’ve got a picture of my husband’s grandmother with my two girls. It was taken just before she passed away. She’s blowing out the candles on her cake and all of her great-grandkids are behind her. It’s the coolest pic. She was an amazing lady.

      Have a terrific weekend!
