5 years + 1 million page views



Dumplings, early this morning Ye Olde Lamp Shade hit one million page views. That in itself is quite the milestone, but last week also marked my fifth year of blogging. I was going to write up a whiz-bang post about my excitement, but then two very unhappy manchildren decided to take out their anger on the world and somehow Jon Hamm's penis seemed a better way to deal with the day.

I still maintain I have the smartest, wittiest and best-looking commenters in all the blogosphere, and I thank you from the bottom of my cranky heart for taking time to share the snark. I love you all more than my luggage!

Hugs that last an inappropriate amount of time,

Raina

I'm operating under deep cover, and have been off the "snark radar" for quite awhile (and you may guess who this is, you savvy whiz-banger). However, nothing pleases me more than to surface during your "one millionth", and blow right alongside the cream of the crop.

You don't look at day over 9,999,999.
