My blog is this many years old now

I started writing this blog in the last days of the Bush/Cheney debacle that brought our country to the brink of financial ruin.  It looked like those crooks were never going to go, and then we got saddled with a little better class of crook, one who gave us a little of what we demanded but who still kept the worst parts of the past administration.

So I've been railing here ever since.

Sure, I toss in the odd review, the pop culture appreciation post, and the one liner every now and again, but my meat and potatoes is skewering the rich, the pompous, and the willfully stupid.  I do it with sarcasm, withering critiques, and gallows humor, because that's the best kind of humor.  I add photos of hot brunettes, fiery Latinas, and smokin' hot British babes because I'm a guy and I like looking at pretty women.

It's been a great five years on this blog.  I love writing it.  I love all the friends I've made writing it and  I appreciate all the commenters and those who read but never comment.  I don't post with the same frequency I did in the first few years but I still look forward to coming up with new posts and sharing things about my mundane life.

It's been a pleasure and if nothing else, at least I've kept myself entertained for five years.  Let's shoot for five more, shall we?

Woohoo! Happy blog birthday! I missed out on your first four years - but I hope I'll be around for the next five!

Five more? Sounds good to me.

Thanks for the first five, Monkey, even though I think I've only read the last two. Looks like I've got three years waiting for me.

And it's been a pleasure reading you. Congrats!

Funny you post this as I'm writing a stats/update post myself and I had to look it up - CFC turned 6 in January. Crazy.

Again, congrats!

That's pretty impressive! It's hard to believe you've been giving us your opinions for half a decade?! Seriously, I'm not that old.

Sorry for the late congratulations, but congratulations. Now you get to put on your big boy pants and kick more ass.

That five years went by in a flash! I'm glad you're still here doing your thing because you're a bright spot in my feed reader.
