Who will be the 10,000th commenter at jimbo.info?

We are fast approaching the 10,000th comment here at jimbo.info. Who will the 10,000th commenter be? Will the comment have anything to do with the entry, or will it be comment SPAM? I wish I had some schwag to give out to the 10,000th commenter, but all I can give you is my love. The 2,000th entry will probably happen in September, so that means about 10 comments per blog entry, fyi. Y'all are Chatty Kathys.

My keyboard at work is disgusting. My fingers almost stick to the keys. Time to do some office cleaning.

I had a lovely weekend with CrumbleFur Matt. On Friday we went out to Nellie's. The upper deck on the third floor is sorta at the exhaust duct level of nearby Ethiopian restaurants, and you can smell that spice they use in the food. And when I get drunk, I CRAVE Ethiopian food sooo bad. But the problem is that no matter what you order at an Ethiopan restaurant, it takes them forever to get it to you. If there was an Ethiopian restaurant that catered to the "drunken pizza slice craving crowd" with fast order turnaround I think they'd make money hand over fist.

On Saturday we went tubing down the Upper Potomac from Harper's Ferry. It was a steamy day and the trip hit the spot. I wore my Teva sandals - and I liked it. Lots of furry shirtless college kids too - good to see the body hair trimming plague that has gripped the gay community hasn't taken with everyone else. I spotted a gay couple accompanying one group on the tubing shuttle - they were the only ones with John Basedow abs, posing a lot like him too. I tend to favor more natural torsos. Hon, there's nothin' wrong with a little something to grab or rest your head on, you know?

Fortunately for all of us there is still TJ, who hosted for a high-definition viewing of the film Breach later that evening. I rarely go to the theatres to see political thrillers, but it was a good film to watch at a home.

Frikkin' financial management final due on Tuesday - it's a take-home, but will still involve a lot of fact checking and number crunching. I will be happy when this course is over with. I realized why it seemed so intense - it's a condensed summer course so the homework was indeed time consuming. It doesn't help that all these concepts are alien to me - my biology and communications background never touched on balance sheets and cost variances. Two more days of cash flows and costs of good souls and I'm done and free of study until September.

See now, I think the 10,000th commenter should be allowed to tweak your nipples. Then again, I get the feeling that most of your readers have already done that :P Good luck on the exam. And Harper's Ferry is one of my favorite spots in the Mid-Atlantic.

when my keyboard finally got to the last level of filth that I could tolerate and my boss told me i had to make do, I laid a paper towel over the keys and than sprayed the paper towel with 409 cleaner. i let that soak for 10 or 15 minutes and than wipped the keys. The gunk and filth came right off and it looked like i had a new keyboard, i did the same thing on my calculator and phone keypad.

I once had a Toshiba laptop that died from too much spillage. Hmm... wonder what it was? It was still under warranty, but I think they did the black light test and notified me that mine died of unnatural causes from "spillage" and refused to honor the waranty. :( SIGH. Such is the life of a webcammer.

I'm dying to check out Nellies..sound good, but I hate the name. Think I'll call it NSB.

I just cleaned my keyboard at work today, too. (Wow, synchronicity.) Where did all those crumbs come from? I never eat at my desk. Hmm, a mystery. Oh well, I love using those cans of compressed air. Anyway, congrats on the upcoming blog landmarks. I'm just reaching the one year mark on mine. That seems to be the point where a lot of blogs falter for some reason. I'm plan to grit my teeth and keep forging ahead.

Stumbled across your blog during an internet fur binge.

[My partner and I have been together 23 years, and the man still only has one frickin' chest hair. Must be love ...]

When you mentioned the 10,000 commenter, I just had to respond. I blame the Don de Dieu.


Thanks for blog and the intro to Flickr. FINALLY, I can search "hairy chest" and get some satisfaction.

And sorry to hear about the loss of your lilies. Here in the suburbs of Columbus, wild turkeys and their young try to keep ahead of the fat racoons.

Yours in fur ...

Ohio Tom (who may not be the 10,000th commenter but wants to be remembered anyway ... )

I can think of lots of ways to honor me as your 10,00th commentor.

I turns out I am not alone in my obsession to stamp out bad sandals. Although rafting is the ONLY time it ia acceptable to wear Tevas.
