Whoop-de-do! 'Tis my 100th post!


Is it not a grand occasion? 

I'VE WRITTEN 100 POSTS!  Me.  Little old me.

It's like... 

"Too bad to be true."

A-hem.  Where did you come from?

"Oh, nowhere special.  Just that insignificant part of your brain that takes care of all the saucy comments and smart-alecky remarks.  That's all."

Well, what do you want to be a wet blanket for?  If you're a part of my brain then this is as much your success as mine.

"Of course.  But it is my duty as the smart aleck to say smart-alecky things.  So that's what I'm doing."

Fine.  Whatever. 

As I was saying, this is my 100th post and I feel like that is worth celebrating.  So...

"Now it's my turn to say something.  You never let me get a word in edgewise."

Excuse me?  You're always talking.  It's like blab, blab, blab all day long. 

"I resent that remark."

Do you deny it?

"No.  I just resent it."

Well, I gotta hand it to you, you're quick on the draw when it comes to quoting movies.

"Of course.  That's one of my best things.  (You see.  I am good for something.)"

(I never said you weren't.)  Now.  As I was saying...

"Interrupting is another thing I do really well."

I've noticed.  
 
"It's a talent of mine, I guess."
 
'Hem.  To get back to my original train of thought...

"Choo-choo-choo.  Train ran off the tracks.  Too bad.  Very sad.  (You know?  I've actually got lots of hidden talents.)"

Well, hurrah for you!  I must say, though, the interrupting one is not so very hidden.

"Oh no.  That one isn't.  That's one I like to share with the world.  Because some talents, you know, are just too good to be kept to oneself. " 

Really. 

"Yes!  But to get back to what I was saying.  I think it's about time you let me do more talking around here.  A person starts to feel very slighted when they're not allowed to have their fair share in the conversation.  You know that, don't you?" 

Honestly.  I'd say you've had more than your fair share of talking on this blog.

"You would say that, of course.  But your opinion can hardly be called an unbiased one."

Well, then.  I appeal to my readers.  Dear readers, hasn't my sarcastic, smart-alecky voice been heard quite often enough on this blog?  I mean, there have already been several posts where he's made an appearance such as he is making right now, and on top of that I have a feeling he makes a subtle appearance in pretty nearly every post I write.  Isn't that so?  (And don't ask me why I'm referring to my sarcastic voice as a "he".  It just fits somehow.)

"You can't appeal to your readers.  That's not fair.  Besides, by this point they're probably wondering what in the world we're even talking about."

Of course they are!  Because my posts never make sense when you show up.

"Haha!  Yes, indeed.  And proud of it I am.  Not making sense is another of my hidden talents."

Oh good grief.  Can I PLEASE get on to the point of this post?

"Yes.  Please do.  I was waiting for you to stop fooling around and get to that."

*Sigh*  
 
I don't think anyone even cares to hear after all of this rigmarole, but here we go.

Friends!  Fellows!  Countrymen!
 
This is my 100th post!!  My ONE HUNDREDTH post!!!

"And this is like the 100th time you've said that."  *prolonged sigh of boredom*

(I see you also like to exaggerate.  However, I'll ignore that remark.)  
 
In order to celebrate this grand event, I've been thinking over what I could do to make this post more special than the norm.  
 
*drum roll*

*accelerated drum roll*
 
*drum roll abruptly dies down*
 
Unfortunately I couldn't  think of anything.

"So.  We may go home now?"

(Shhh.  No.  Not yet.) 

As I said, I couldn't think of anything particularly special, but then I got the idea to include some links to a couple of my early posts.  And that seemed like a good enough idea. Celebrating a noteworthy post by reminiscing over old ones?  Why not?  

So that, my dear friends, is what I'm going to do.  For those of you who have been reading my blog since the beginning, naturally these won't be new to you...

"So you may all go home.  (Lucky people.)"

(Ahem.)  
 
However, you might enjoy reading them all the same, so feel free to do so.  (Or just skip 'em.  That's fine, too.)

"I like to skip!"

For those of you who are newer to my blog, well, I hope you may find something here to amuse or interest you. 
 
"Of course if you enjoy skipping, I'd be most happy to have you join me."

(A-HEM.)
 
So without further ado...here are the posts.



 
A post in which I prattle on about romantic stereotypes.  
"Prattling on being the perfect word for it."
 
 

I had fun with this post because talking about movies--and what I think of them--is one of my favorite topics.  
"This is very true.  And believe me, she WILL talk on that subject--long and thoroughly--whether you like it or not."
 
 

This is one of my favorite posts because... 
"Let me tell!  Let me tell!  It's a favorite because she thinks she really was quite witty in this one."  
You are so very complimentary today.
"I know it.  That's another of my..."
Don't tell me.  Another of your hidden talents.  *groan*
 
 

A random post about a couple games my siblings and I invented.
"Random being a very choice word indeed.  In fact, I wonder...is there anything Miss March writes that is not random?"
 
 

The post in which "Mr. Smart Aleck" made his first appearance.  
"That's me!!  (wink)  I LOVE THIS POST!!" 
 
 

The title says it best.  
"Indeed.  And disastrous is the word that particularly stands out.  In fact, that would be an excellent word to describe this post. Don't you think?"
Indubitably. 

 
*****
 
If you had time to read any of those (and I hardly expect you to read all of them because goodness knows there's plenty of new posts to read without wasting time on old ones), but if you did happen to read some, I hope you enjoyed them.  And I'll just say (for the record) that I by no means object to (and in fact I quite love) getting comments on old posts.  Just sayin'. 
 
"SHE HAS NO OBJECTION TO RECEIVING COMMENTS ON OLD POSTS!  THIS IS WHAT SHE'S JUST SAYIN'!!"
 
Oh, shush.  You don't have to shout it from the house tops.  I only meant that as  a small hint or suggestion, just in case anyone wanted to comment.  No pressure.
 
"SHE MEANT IT AS A SUGGESTION!!  I HOPE YOU'RE GOOD AT TAKING A HIIIINT!!"
 
Oh!  You are impossible.  I am entirely put out with you.
 
"Put out?  Where?  Where have we been put out?  Out on the street?  Oooh.  That wasn't very nice.  Who would do that to us?"
 
Oh brother. 
 
I have a feeling I'd better end this post right quick before it becomes an unqualified disaster.
 
Good-day, my friends.  If you read the whole of this ridiculous post all I can say is, MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU!  I hope very much you can manage to have a good day after all this nonsense, and that you'll find it in your heart to forgive me for being such a nut.  (I honestly don't know what comes over me sometimes.) 
 
How very true.

  1. Haha, I have my own snarky devil that likes to show his face every once in a while....with equally disastrous results.

    Congrats on the 100th post!

  2. Congratulations Miss March! Your snarky side may be rather cruel, but I'm sure he has also come up with some of your finest ideas (like this post, perhaps?;) Anyway, thanks for making me laugh for the last 100 posts (ok, so I probably haven't read Every Single One, but most of them!) and I hope you love writing the next hundreds even more!

    1. Thank you, Abby!! :) And, aww. My snarky side is bursting with pride to hear that Abby thinks he has come up with some of the finest ideas! (Can you see the buttons popping off his vest? ;)) Seriously, though, I do wonder sometimes if I'm not getting carried away in my attempt to be humorous, so it's a relief to know I haven't made an utter fool of myself. Haha. ;P

      Thank you so much for your comment, dear friend! :D

  3. I'm beginning to wonder if you have Multiple Personality Disorder, dear... :)

    But, honestly, this post was hilarious and I enjoyed it thoroughly!

    You will be happy to know that I clicky-clicked on aaaaaaaalll the links (and will proceed to read the posts as soon as I am done commenting here...). I FEEL likje I've been following for a long time???? But apparently not because none if the posts you linked to looked familiar???? Strange.

    Anyway. Congratulations!!!! *hands you a very large cake*

    1. It's a disorder of some sort, that's for sure. HAHA. ;)

      Aww, thanks!! *grin*

      Yes indeed. HAPPY is the word. Thank you, deary. It was so much fun to get seven comments from you...all in one day! :) I know right? It does seem like you've been following for a long time. *runs off and does some quick research* Aha! I found it. You've been following my blog since last May and that was just a short while after the last of these posts was published, so that explains why you missed them. :)

      CAKE? Yippee! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I was totally in the mood for something sweet. :D

  9. EEK, it's your 100th post?? CONGRATULATIONS, MY DEAR!! *throws confetti*

    I've missed Mr. Smart Aleck!! Glad to have him back. (I'm glad you think of it as a "he" as well. He just sounds like a he. If that makes any sense...)
    Hmm. Well, I hate to disagree with you Miss March, but Mr. Smart Aleck may have a point...he hasn't been around in awhile. Maybe he could become a more regular visitor?

    Hahaha. "Well, hurrah for you!" I know what movie that's from. :P

    "*drum roll*

    *accelerated drum roll*

    *drum roll abruptly dies down*

    Unfortunately I couldn't think of anything.

    "So. We may go home now?"" Hahaha! That made me giggle. :D

    ""SHE MEANT IT AS A SUGGESTION!! I HOPE YOU'RE GOOD AT TAKING A HIIIINT!!""

    Oh my word. I LOVE Mr. Smart Aleck. He is the best. :D

    Happy 100th posts, again!!! *hugs*

    1. THIS COMMENT. Basically I just have to give you a hug because this comment made me SO happy!! *HUGS*

      You mean you actually WANT to hear from Mr. Smart Aleck? And you MISSED him? Awww. That is too sweet. (And I just have to say, I'm so glad you think of him as a "he," too, because yeah. For whatever reason that's definitely the way I imagine him as well. :))

      Oh! You traitorous friend. Shhh. Don't say that. He'll hear you! (Already have! *evil laugh* And I must thank you, Natalie, for setting Miss March straight. Of course everyone would want to hear from me. How could they not? I'm so very charming. *wink*) Oh dear, Natalie. I'm afraid you've started something now. He's going to be absolutely incorrigible. ;P

      AMAZING GRACE!!!! Yes! One of the best movies ever! And that is one of my favorite quotes. It's just perfect for so many different situations. :)

      Awwww. I had no idea Mr. Smart Aleck was that endearing. But I'm glad you like him. :) (Believe it or not when I read what you had to say about him I got that happy little feeling I get when someone loves one of my story characters. And he's just supposed to be a second voice in my head. Is that ridiculous, or what? Haha. ;))

      Thank you so much, Natalie! *hugs*

    2. *HUGS* back. :D :D :D

      Yes!!! He's great. I can't wait for him to make more appearances. (hint hint) (He's definitely a "he". I can't picture him as a girl. :P)

      Why, hello, Mr. Smart Aleck! It's so nice to hear from you. Yes, do tell Miss March that she must please her readers. Incorrigible or not, we'd love to hear from you. ;) (Sorry, Miss March!)

      AGREED. :D

      I don't think that's ridiculous at all. I mean, he practically IS a character, and one you created out of your own head. Be proud. :)

      Delete
    3. Heehee, you're a dear. Really, I should be shaking my finger at your for siding with Mr. Smart Aleck against me, but I can't find it in my heart to do it. So I'll just give you a hug instead. (hugs) Because you're such an awesome friend. :)

      I suppose I might be able to allow Mr. Smart Aleck some more time on my blog...perhaps. We shall see. ("ALLOW me more time? I say! It's not as if I was waiting around for your permission!! I shall come whether you ALLOW me to or not.") Dear, dear. There he is again...

      You're so right. He practically IS a character created out of my own head. Funny how that works. :)

    4. Aww, thank you. I much prefer that anyhow. ;) *hugs back*

      Yay!!! :D

      Maybe one day you could put together a collection of all the blog posts he's appeared in. Then you could publish it and he could become famous. ;P

      Delete
    5. Haha. Mr. Smart Aleck's ears perked up when you said famous. Oh yes! He would certainly enjoy that. ;P

  12. Haha. I loved this! You are exceptionally witty. ;)

    Also, congratulations - 100 posts is a great milestone! (I was going to say "nothing to sneeze at" but then I thought it didn't sound quite so elegant. ;P)

    Also, at the end of your little banter with your smart-alecky side (and I was a little startled when you began calling it 'he', haha) reminded me almost a little of Smeagol/Gollum's discussions, hehe. XD (Only yours are much nicer and nonsensical and wittier. Goodness, I hope that remark doesn't sound rude. :P)

    1. Why thank you! *bows* :)

      Haha. You're funny. I wouldn't have minded you saying "nothing to sneeze at", but you're right, it is more elegant the other way. And "let's be elegant or die!" Right? ;)

      Were you really? Haha. Well, I suppose after all it is rather strange to call the second voice in my head a 'he'...but for whatever reason I just seem to imagine it that way. Don't ask me why. :P

      Sméagol/Gollum???! Ohmygoodness! What did I ever do to deserve such an accusation? HAHAHA. Seriously, that is TOO funny. :D (I'm glad you think my conversations are nicer than his, though. Teehee.)

      Thank you for a splendid comment!! And welcome back! It's so good to hear from you again. I hope your holidays were wonderful. :) (And just so you know, I DO mean to respond to your email soon. I've just been kind of lazy recently, and now things are beginning to pile up on me. :))
