    Cool Careful what you wish for...

    I've been watching the number of "Likes" I've received creep up, and today it hit 100,000. In celebration of the event, I anticipated bells ringing, lights flashing, sirens sirening, and lots of coins pouring out.

    I said something smart alecky (a rariety), and the wife smacked me up the side of the head. The bells truly rang and lights flashed, the ambulance siren sirened in the background, and the medic said this injury was gonna cost me a lot of coins.

    When I hit 200,000 Likes, I'm settling for a quiet drink...

    (Thanks folks!)

    It's not that we like you, we just like the stuff that comes out of your brain. Do not confuse the two.
    Dang, your snarkyness is contagious.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    That's okay. I don't like me either, or even "Like" me.

    Itís an artificial internet thing. Sorry, but no one really likes you. Itís like the Kiddís saying, ďLikeĒ every third or fourth word.

    You know, like, we like you.
