Three Oh Oh

Everyone likes a meaningless milestone. A chance for a bit of self-indulgent self-congratulation. So what better excuse than to celebrate the achieving a nicely satisfying multiple of one hundred in terms of blog postage than with this, my three hundredth blog post. Alright, so some of those blog posts have just been video links and a certain post earlier today may well have been only a couple of sentences to get me through that awkward two hundred and ninety ninth post but still. Oh, and actually, I posted a load of blogs at The Space Which Was Mine before this one so, technically, this is actually the five hundred and twentieth but I did say it was a meaningless milestone so let's stick with that.

So what to do for the Big Three Oh Oh? Well, I toyed with the idea of telling you three hundred things about myself but I really don't think that there are three hundred things about myself. Or at least, if there are, it's mostly, by the time you get to the end, going to be a list of the various types of cheeses that I enjoy (Stilton, mature Cheddar, Danish Blue, Wensleydale, Brie, Camembert... no, that way madness lies...).

I could make extremely amusing references to the slice of violent homo-erotic celluloid that is the film 300 but I'll resist the urge. Yep. Not gonna give in to that one. No siree.... Oh, alright then, just quickly:- This. Is. BLOGGER! There, that's got that out of the way.

I toyed with the idea of posting the cover of comics that have made it to the heights of issue 300 but I couldn't be bothered to do the research on that. And then, on the theme of comics, I could have talked about the only planned 300 issue storyline in comicdom - Cerebus by Dave Sim - but, frankly, for all it's great parts, it's marred by the increasingly insane worldview of it's creator (which does, unfortunately, strongly influence a lot of the work) plus I'm sure I've talked about it before.

So what does this leave us for this falsely momentous manufactured milestone? I tell you what it leaves us:- nothing. That's what it leaves. And, let's face it, the majority of these blogs tend to be about nothing much anyway so what better way to commemorate?

Nick Nack Blog Attack. The blog with nowt left in and owt taken out.

Coming next time:- More rambly nothingness. Don't miss it.

Hi Baldy,

Real Men talk about nothing from time to time. Some more then others.

Comedians and celebrities have writers behind them.

We have but ourselves.

Happy 300 and many more.

Lady E - Until you're schizophrenic, in which case you've always got company... Ta very much!

cerebus660 - Cheers, squire! FEar not, there's a whole lot more nothing out there...

Vic - If I ever change the blog title, that's what I'm gonna call it. Delicious Donut Holes (except we spell it doughnut cause we're awkward like that). Cheers, me dear!

Fragrant Liar - Oh, there must be many more. I didn't even mention paneer, halloumi, gouda, limberger, edam, tilsit... no, no, must stop. Thanks for the congrats!
