One Thousand


According to the internal MT counter, we're closing in on 1,000 comments for this blog (we're slightly less than fifty away right now).

So it seems appropriate that I sponsor a contest: the user who posts the one-thousandth comment on this site will win a fabulous prize pack (note: not a fabulous prize, but rather a fabulous prize pack!) So for all of you who've been bugging poor old previously unemployed me about getting free T-shirts, well, now's your chance.

Here are the official rules:

1) No ballot-box stuffing. That means no more than three comments in a row, and all comments must be germane to the post at hand.

2) Should the 1,000 comment poster be unable to accept the prize, the 1,001th comment poster will be the winner. In the event that the 1,001 comment poster cannot accept the prize, then the 1,002, and so on and so forth.

3) Immediate family members are not eligible to win.

Everybody happy?


Whoops...I thought this was gonna go in reverse chronological order, so it was gonna say "I like comments!" Now I just feel stupid. What number is this one?

leave it to you to post rules. so if i've won before does that disqualify me?

Previous winners are eligible.

You know, just having the ability to comment on your blog is prize enough, sir. So yes, I am happy.

Is it me?

How about now?


i love commenting. and i love commenting on your blog.

am i the lucky winner? am i? huh? huh?

I have never commented on your blog before, but I've been reading it for a few months. You rule.

Also, I love free stuff.

Heh. Your comment to post ratio seems to have improved a bit after posting this. ;)

(I feel almost guilty commenting now. :P )

Well, here I am, sitting in my library, wearing my "I am a Z-List Blogger" t-shirt, obtained from the frankenstein emporium as my last prize for doing something unexpected and fun on a blog.

Putting in my two-bits worth of comment towards the 1,000th comment. Free stuff is good stuff!

Is this 1000?

Is this one?

Am I the winner?

I got your box stuffing right here!
