A centenary of sorts

I know, I know, I didn't do Blogworld Saturday this week. I've been having some computer problems. I'll make up for it next time, I promise!

It's been almost three months since I started this blog, and this is my 100th post (raahhh!). I started out with just one reader, that lovely, oft-misunderstood, quirky, and feisty young Canadian woman who lives in the UAE (actually, she was the one who got me started on Blogger in the first place). So this one's for you, Tainted. This blog has grown since then. To readers old and new, please accept my heartfelt thanks.

Because of this blog, I've gotten to read great pieces of writing, seen wonderful artwork, and learned about some of the nooks and crannies of many people's daily lives and how their minds work. Many of you have made me laugh, a few have made me cry. I enjoy visiting your areas of cyberspace! I look forward to meeting many more bloggers and to getting to know them, albeit virtually.

Here's a video of a song that I think totally rocks. It's got absolutely nothing to do with this post...I just love this song. Haha! Besides, Michael Jackson still looked like a human being in this one.

Happy 100th--- and cheers to tainted for getting you started- hard to believe it's only been 3 months, such a following speaks volumes for your charm, wit, and sincerity--- glad I stopped by--- With so much controversy, we sometimes forget what an incredible musician MJ is--- seems to be staying under the radar in some eastern country-- again, cheers!

Congrats on #100!

I personally am a Janet fan. I was heartbroken when her breast flopped out for the world to see, but she can still make me swoon any day.

Odat said...

Congrats on your 100th posting!!!
I just started visiting and hope I'll see the next 100! Happy blogging!

Kiyotoe said...

Well I'm definitely glad we've bumped into each other out here in this big, hard, cold cruel cyber world. Congrats.

And I am also a Janet fan, minus the heartbreak when the boobie popped out. Accidents happen.

Happy Hundredth Post, Lizza!

Painom ka na! =)

zeroimpact said...

Yay, 3 months and already 100 posts, that's great news
I love MJ too remember I got my first OA cassette back when I was 12, I still like his music, a lot

Lizza said...

nannan: It sure seems like it's been longer than three months. I'm so glad, too, that you stopped by!

Justin: Thanks! I like Janet, too. The boob incident was unfortunate.

odat: Thank you. I've also been starting to read your blog, though I've seen you many times in the comments section of other blogs. Glad to see you here. :-)

Kiyotoe: Thanks! I'm so glad, too. Your blog is pretty thought provoking, always a good read.

HB: Thank you. Halika na, inuman na! Oktoberfest pa naman. Haha! Cheers.

zeroimpact: It's a mini-milestone for me. :-D Thank you for your constant visits. And yes, I think much of MJ's music is great.

Prometheus said...

Pop out the Dom Perignon, girl. 3 months and 100 rocking posts is no mean feat. Here's looking at 10,000 now.

H said...

Hey rock-star, saucy sassy girl congrats on the hundredth... Mine happens to be the fiftieth. hmmm.

double ocassion of sorts eh?

And I take this ocassion to once again solemnly and pompously declare how absolutely delighted I am that I stumbled upon your blog.


Lizza said...

Prometheus: 10,000? Oh, the pressure! :-D Thank you, my witty pal.

H: Your solemn and pompous congratulations are appreciated, haha! I'm likewise thrilled at discovering your blog. Cheers to you too, O Foxy One.

I will be singing "Rock with You" all day long now. But you know what? You are is a great song and not such a bad one to have in your head all day.

Congrats on your 100th post. I blogged for almost an entire year before I even turned my comments on and I was so glad I did. Like you, I have met some wonderful fellow bloggers out there. You included, of course!

Lizza said...

"Rock With You" is not a bad song for "Last Song Heard Syndrome." You are such a cool music lover...and a dance lover to boot! Thanks, Laurz. You're a wonderful blogger. This part of cyberspace is graced by your presence.

Gumby said...

I knew just from the blurry photo that it was "I wanna rock with ju".

Pretty sad that I knew that...

Aisby said...

Happy 100th post Lizza. I've just found your blog and I'm really enjoying it(in fact, I've already pilfered a meme from you).

Keep up the good work, and I look forward to the next 100 posts!

Morgen said...

Lizza said...

Gumby: That's not sad. It's kinda cool, actually. Because you're such a cooool gayfriend.

aisby: Thank you very much for dropping by, and I'm glad you like my blog. I'm enjoying yours, too, and I'll be visiting regularly. Love your meme answers, btw! :-D

Morgen: Thanks! You are so invited to any bashes I'll be having here, O Man of a Million Cyberfaces!

Reeholio said...

Congratulations Lizza. Good on you!

I love that outfit Michael's wearing too. I want it for my fancy dress closet.

By the way, why does your profile say you are 250 years old???

Lizza said...

Thanks, Rhys! But let me gulp down a couple of drinks before I start imagining you wearing the glittery stuff that MJ is wearing. :-D

I am 250 years old! (insert sound witchlike cackling) :-D

lastlifeinmyuniverse said...

um... ive been blogging for a year now and still on my 95th post. meh. congrats sweetheart *kisses*

INAMINI said...

lizza- we congratulate you! You are your posts are always interesting, and darn it- you make me think! Thanks for your friendship and support!

A.Roberson said...

I started in July, and I only have 41 posts! I need to get back on my job, huh?

Anyway, I love your blog. Please Keep Posting!!

BTW, did you see the lastest post of mine? It is very real,yet VERY Disturbing! I beg you to get all of your readers and friends to view this post. THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO GAIN READERS, BUT AN ATTEMPT TO CREATE AN AWARENESS OF WHAT'S STILL GOING ON IN OUR WORLD. It is very disturbing. Please take a moment to visit.


Thank you much, and keep posting ;-)

Lizza said...

lastlifeinmyuniverse: Debs!!! Well, you've been gallivanting here and there, haven't you? :-) So great to see you here again.

inamini: Thank you. :-) I love your family history posts (and all the others). And you've made me think many times, too!

Ahmed: I've been visiting your blog and I like your posts. I agree, messages of hate in popular culture are horrible.

Congrats on (co-)winning Gale's Flash Fiction competition a few weeks ago!

A.Roberson said...

Thanks for that. My next post won't be so disturbing, but I will continue to do my best to entertain y'all. Who knows what I'll talk about next...;-)

Scott from Oregon said...

OK. I can do math, though I tell better stories. That means you posted TWICE in the same day TEN times in three months. That's a sign of hyperactive blogging. Ther eis a cure for that. Read more. Post less.

Most doctor's allow for one post a day. After that, they begin to have cerebral concerns and will prescribe a night of watching You Tube.

Pace yourself, girl.

And congratulations!

Michael C said...

Happy 100!!!! I can't wait to read each and everyone of the next 100!!!

It's easy to forget sometimes how talented Mr. Jackson was. This was/is a great song!!

Congrats to you!!

Lizza said...

Ahmed: You're welcome. I like your posts. :-)

Scott: I do read a lot, I do, I do! :-D Thanks for doing the math, I suck at that. And a night of watching YouTube doesn't sound too bad, haha! Thanks for the congrats and thanks for dropping by. Your blog postings are funny!

Michael: Thank you! Yep, MJ looks and acts weird now, but he was amazing as a performer.


Wow, MJ used to be black? ;)

Lizza said...

Haha! Surprising, isn't it?
