One Thousand

Wow! This is my 1,000th post. Who'd a thunk getting hit by a car was the best thing to happen to me? Funny how your life can change in the blink of an eye.

This blog started the day I came to live with Mom, over 2 years ago. She didn't know much about this blogging business, and was a bit worried about it. She wasn't sure I'd have much to say. She says she always knew she was an Artist, but she never knew she was a writer.

I guess she just needed the right Muse!

So here's the Muse Flash. After New Year's, we won't be blogging every day. Mom and I tried to do it in 2008, but it's a lot of work, and it's been a tough year in a lot of ways. We are gonna take it easier in 2009. I'm still gonna blog, of course, just not every single day.

However, a tiny celebration is in order. So how about this... Leave me a comment on THIS post. When this day is over, Mom will put all the names of the cats/beans/woofies/buns/hamsters... who commented in a bowl and I will pick one. I'll send that cat(bean/woofie/bun/hamster) a little bag of treats and a 'Nip toy, and maybe a couple of other goodies. Mom will include a box of those "nasty evil chocolates" that went out with the prizes of the When When Contest we had back in March.

So here's the rules. Remember, it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to. That means I can change the rules if I want.

1. Each cat, woofie or bun gets ONE Comment EACH.
2. You must leave a comment on THIS POST.
3. Deadline is Midnight Tuesday December 16, 2008. (So when it isn't Tuesday anywhere in the world, the contest will be over.)
4. You have to have a blog, or leave some way for us to get in touch with you, so we have to know who you are. If you have a blog, you're good to go.
5. Mom says it will go out when it goes out, and that could be a few days, since I just told her about it, and she doesn't have any of the goodies yet.
6. Sharpen your pencils, and get to it...

(psst.. Mom... what does that mean, "sharpen your pencils?" I have claws, not pencils...)

Congratulations Millie. We can say we knew you when (even tho we weren't blogging yet ourselves). We agree that you should take it a bit easier in 2009. We tried to do the everyday post also, but Mom was getting too stressed out, so we now do at least M-F.

Congratulations again.

Angus Mhor said...

Millie-face! You don't look nearly old enough to have a 1000 posts! I'd say you were more on the 'fresh-baked' side! I'm not sure I can do without my dailly Millie-fix..but, I'd rather have some Millie-mews than none AT ALL! So...Oh! Hey! I'm just gonna say right now that a belleh-flash for Monty Q does NOT count as an official post-that's more on the order of egregious titillation, IMHO. So, however many you decide to do a week-THOSE DON'T COUNT!!! You make time on your own time, ya hear?


PS..that doesn't mean you're gonna stop visitin', does it? I can't stand it! AAAAAAUGH!

PPS-::whispers behind paw:: Do you feel missed already?

Kikky said...

Millie, your blog is the very first place I go on the whole internet every day! It'll be a better day when there's something new posted after New Year's, and a sadder day when there isn't. But I understand. It's been a very tough year indeed. Here's to 2009 being a big improvement!

Laila and Minchie said...

Congratulations on your 1000th post! That is quite an accomplishment! And we've read everyone of them since we've been blogging.

DEBRA said...

We have followed you since Malcolm and when you were first hit by that awful car (that didn't stop)and then we followed you to your new forever home(YAY) and now you have over 1000 posts...we just went over 1000 ourselves a few short weeks ago. You're right sometimes it is hard to post but since blogger has that pre post feature it has helped Momma a lot, especially since she can't do much on the weekends...we are glad you aren't going to .... STOP.... blogging! *whew* Gave us a reason to pause but we do understand how hard it is to blog everyday. WE commend those who do though. Concats on a 1000 --- who knew, huh? How lucky you were ... we should call you Lucky Millie.


Lone Star Purrs said...

WOWWIE!!! It's been 2 years already?? Doesn't seem like it's been that long.

Concatulations Millie! 1000 posts is amazing.

Kellykat said...

Woo hooo! Concatulations to a Tuxie from a Tuxie. I love your blog.

Kellykat said...

That's quite an accomplishment Millie. I could never post 1000 times, at least not in just 2 years.

Kellykat said...

Fantastic job on reaching your 1000th post Millie. Blogging is a lot of work, so glad you made the effort.

PB 'n J said...

Concatulations on your 1000th post Millie! And also for posting every day, that's hard work!

pansylovr said...

Well, congrats on the 1000th post. It has been a wonder to see what one cat can do, when he puts his mind to it.
I always enjoy reading your blog entries and share them with the cats in my life. One of them is a tuxie, just like you. His name is Charles. Charles and his brother, Runt, came to live with me when my nephew had to move from his house and couldn't take them with him-so they came to live with me and my feline, Taz (aka "the Princess").
So, congrats again and here's to the next 1000...
Anna, and the cats-Taz, Charles, and Runt- in Illinois

Congratulations on your 1000th post! I was one of the ones who volunteered to give Millie a home also. It has been so nice to watch her bloom into such a luverly kitty! I think you were the perfect mom bean for her and she has the best furrever home she could ever find. Thank you for keeping us all up to date on her happenings and yours. It has been a tough year and you've come through it with grace. I hope you continue to bless us with your updates and Millies funny antics. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

peggy and The Cats said...

Ah Millie,
1,000 posts. Very impressive. We would never known about the CB and all the wonderful cats and beans out there without you. We started reading about you from the first when you were saved by Malcolm. We've followed you and met so many super nice kitties because of your first posts by Malcolm. Thank you for all you have given us. Luvs.

Ollie and his mom nikki said...

Yay Millie (and mom Lynne)!! Ollie & I are so happy that you found each other! We wish you nothing but happiness, hugs, purrs & scritches for many years to come.

Millie you are very much entitled not to blog every day. I sometimes wonder how you and your mum find time to do it.

1000 Posts. Mom can't even imagine that. We are new to blogging and as much as we try we cannot do it everyday. Sign me up for the drawing.
