I realize that 500 isn't a real Landmark in the Hatrack tradition but I wanted my 500th post to be a bit more than my normal fluff.
I'm taking this time to say Thank You to Hatrack.
To the Cards I express my gratitude not only for Orson's wonderful writings but also for hosting this special site.
To the community I say, "Damn, you guys are good!" I love the wit, intelligence and compassion that I witness here every day.
Hatrack has surely become a part of me in these last few months. I feel like I've come to know a bit about some of you and I hope I can continue to develop ties with lots more of the Hatrack community.
Thank you all for sharing your entertaining, illuminating, educating, and caring posts. You've made me feel welcome and I have come to love this place.
I still consider myself a greenhorn after 1000 posts and being here for over a year. I have yet to meet a Hatracker in person, but I am putting an open invitation to anyone who is travelling between Chicago and NYC. I live almost directly in between in PA just off interstate 80.
So, anyway, welcome! and stay a long long time.
And in time, we will share the Ensure pudding, and it will be glorius.
P.S. The masturbating judge play-on-words were pee-in-the-pants-funny-HIlarious!
I think a Landmark isn't just about the number of posts you make. I have been here for about 3 years and I just broke 1000. I didn't do a Landmark then either, because I didn't feel it to be that important at that time. I'm sure I'll get around to it soon enough...
Glad you like it here as much as we like having you here!
