November By The Numbers


30: Posts completed (however worthlessly) in the name of NaBloWhatever

5,476: Times I swore that I would “give up the damn ghost, already” and stop posting every day because it was a gigantic pain in the puckered pooper.

0: Times I actually didn’t publish something of some worth, and without (I proudly add) using the cop-out Post Pictures of my Kids posts that I do so badly

1: “Awards” won last year during NaBloWhatever

1: Day blog was down last year during same month due to some technological problems I don’t pretend to understand or care about.

0: “Awards” received despite having won one last year thanks to blog breakage

2: Thanksgivings celebrated, with or without requisite good cheer.

0: Times people mentioned caring about lack of good cheer, leading me to believe that Chubby and Surly is the way to handle all holidays.

1: Thanksgiving celebration canceled due to inclimate weather.

357: Meatballs consumed happily by yours truly during our White Trash Thanksgiving

5: Different doctors seen this month, thereby rendering me a Freakshow of Epic Proportions

89: mg/DL result of glucose tolerance test suffered through at 29 weeks pregnant.

12: donuts consumed within a 36 hour period, that had I not had a mouth available for that purpose, I might have rubbed all over my body, which makes the results of my GTT even more amazing.

5: bloody noses that nearly sent my pathetic-y freakshow ass to the ER for cauterization.

2: shirts that I have left that cover my huge self, leading me to actually have to purchase additional clothing despite the fact that barely have 2 months left of my pregnancy and don’t plan on requiring them again.

1: time I had to Mark All As Read on my Google Reader in order to regain my sanity.

2,377,976: approximate amount of spam messages that I had to moderate before tossing them ruthlessly to wherever deleted blog spam goes. Blog Spam Heaven?

I’m into “crakers” these days…any chance you can introduce me to a “thug, or gansgsta type cracker”? cuz Edwards down with White Trash Thanksgiving you know. I’m in for the meat balls and all the rest! Love ya Ms. Aunt Becky…you done did good with your 30 posts in 30 days thing…any chance that is like 30 AA meetings is 30 days? I really need to hit me some AA meetings soon, especially if thats where the white trash crackers are…umm I love crackers.

    If Stove Top Stuffing means Thanksgiving is white trash, then call me Cuz and let’s get married! I’m deeply entrenched in white trash holidays already! My mom says the Stove Top is fancy because she bakes it in the oven rather than the microwave! Well la-dee-da! Heh!

    Good job getting through this month. Now, sit back and rest a spell!

    I’m one of those people who appreciate Nablopomo. It gives me a chance to see some content a blogger wouldn’t otherwise put out there. I said the same thing at my place, so I totally get the feeling you’ve got that you didn’t just toss up crap (which I have done in the past).

    Also? White Trash Thanksgiving sounds awesome, and would be even better if you added Stove Top stuffing to the mix.

    I heart all things White Trash. ‘Nuf said.

    If I had one, I’d give you the “I Read You First Award”, because when I sit down to read blogs, I look for yours first. Hope all you December numbers will add up just the way you want them to.

    Bwahahaha. One of these days I’m going to do “mark all as read” too, and just not look back. I will not reveal what the number is though, when I do.

    Donuts. Mmmmmmm.

    Mmmmmm, donuts and meatballs, the breakfast of champions!

    I was annoyed by Nahblome, and I didn’t even participate. I just couldn’t keep up with all the posts. I had to start tossing out crappy comments just to survive it all.

    You can’t figure out tags? What the hell is a tag? Google Reader? That thing annoys the crap out of me! I’ve got to go try to find the mark all as read thing and hope everything gets deleted.

    Five bloody noses? Yikes.

    PS – I still love your redesign.

    Well, at least it’s over, right? Now you can concentrate on that 2 more months of fatness..I mean pregnancy.

    Blog spam hell.

    Dammit, Cuz beat me to the marriage proposal. But I’ll come chase your toddler around for you while you prop up your moon boot. The catch is you MUST share meatballs, donuts, EVERYTHING else from your white trash Thanksgiving AND the codeine. I’m starving…

    Chubby and surly is the way to handle EVERYTHING.

    Considering all that you are going through right now, I think you did an amazing job!

  18. On December 1st, 2008 at 10:40 pm Sandy Says:

    I look at yours first too usually. Oh and I’ll try to get in the spirit. If I could get rid of this post Thankgiving gas that has me doubled over in pain regularly, it may help my spirit.

    Only one reset of the reader? I am impressed, I have been doing mine weekly, I am so behind.
    Hope you are doing alright,

    This is my favorite post ever. I LOVE numbers. 🙂

    You spread the dozen donuts out over 36 hours?! That’s admirable restraint on your part. They would have lasted about 6 hours here.
