Yep, that's right. Welcome to the 200th post of CofaCMG.

This simple Saturday post is a humble thank you to all of you, my readers, who suffer through the crap in my brain that makes it to the Blogger page each and every day. Before I discovered blogs (thanks, Vonda) and what they can do for us writers, I would occasionally send out inane e-mails to family and close friends. These e-mails would contain factoids, my thoughts on current events, my love of everything Berkeley Breathed, or whatever floated my fancy that morning. These people suffered through my randomly-sent thoughts, silently allowing me to get my thoughts out into the open. And then? I fell in love with the blogging format, the idea that I could shoot out a couple hundred words at a time, publish myself on the World Wide Web, without permission from an agent or book publisher, free from purchasing a domain-name or paying for server space. I could do this on my own and if someone read me other than the husband and parents? Well, bonus - party!

Thanks, guys, for making the past almost-eight months a fun ride. Here's to many more thoughts, words, posts, and months to come!

* 200 in binary code. HA!

I cannot WAIT for the next 200! Your blog makes my day so much brighter. It takes me out of my mommy misery for one blissful moment. LOL

How much of a geek am I that I knew what your title meant? After all those years spent looking at decodes from network sniffers...*sigh* it just brings back memories.

I love your blog, girl. NATUI was my first "real" commenter (that is, I didn't know her) and I found you through her. It has all mushroomed from there.

On your blog I get my daily dose of humor and silliness or sometimes profundity. I love seeing what you will come up with next.

Peace - D

Awesome! Congratulations.

So it seems like this is good therapy for you.

That being the case, shouldn't I be getting paid?

Congrats, Heather!
I'll be following along for the next 200, just like NATUI.
It's so nice to find other geeks out there with the same sense of humor and love of Mr. Breathed, Narnia, etc...

Happy 200!

And...you're such a geek. A funny one though, which is why we keep coming back.

Here's to another 11001000.
