First of all. Obrigado.
Como va vocer, Portugal? Bom dia, Brasil!
And Ireland, you randy old goat, you, Slainte!
And Australia…what do you guys say? Konnichiwa? Top of the Beer to Ya?
Anyway, it’s official, this nerd is world-wide. Sweeping the globe like swine flu or a cat-based meme. I now officially have like 6 non-American readers, and one Canadian one. I may even have a couple in Iowa, but wordpress is vague on that point. And anyway, I’m not convinced Iowa has statewide electricity yet.
So thanks everybody for reading! I haven’t felt so valued since I brought home an 8-pack of toilet paper.
Whenever I post something I also put links to it on the Facebook, and have been getting great comments and likes and all those things the kids do. But I realized, unless you’re (un)fortunate enough to have used “friend” as a verb on me, you probably don’t realize how extremely well thought-of I am.
And trust me, I am.
So I thought I’d post some of the more luminary comments from previous bloggatries,
“If only I’d read this blog earlier, so much could have been done.”
-Johnny Polizzi (father of Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi)
“Wowie zowie! I wish I could balance humor and heartfelt wisdom like that! Zing-a-ling!”
– Jerry Seinfeld
“A triumph of joie-de vivre and gentle wit”
– Dogg the Bounty Hunter
“I may be a fictional character, but this blog makes me want to be a better role model for young people”
– Marlo Stanfield of The Wire
There you have it, folks. But don’t worry, I won’t let all these literary accolades go to my head. My kid still won’t let me close the door when I use the bathroom, so that keeps me grounded.
Thanks again everybody for reading, wherever you may be. And feel free to comment or ‘like’ or tweet or bloogle or updrive the RAM-ware or whatever, it’s always awesome to hear from you.
