Approaching 1,000 comments

You might not give two shakes of a lamb's tail, but this is a big milestone for Midnight Sun.

And as such, the person who posts the 1,000th comment gets one of the trinkets from my desk.

I haven't decided which one yet. But I might give the winner some options.

A brief inventory:

Brick Tamland and Champ Kind bobblehead dolls, a carrot-shaped pen, a can of Buzz Cola, tons of CDs, several small transforming robots, a miniature foam football, an empty cup of Squishee, a can of Izze sparkling grapefruit drink, chef's hat, a Frisbee, a box of Flakies cereal, a talking Popsicle Man bobblehead, a Chuck Woolery bobblehead, a tall, slim anniversary edition can of Diet Coke and various other Simpsons memorabilia.

Tough decision between the Brick/Champ bobbleheads or the Chuck Woolery bobblehead.

I so want those Brick and Champ bobbleheads. In the meantime, I'll miss your musk.

Do you have any Duff Beer?

And I thought my desk was pathetic...At least I have cube walls. Third walls are for closers, Sam.

Is that exposed asbestos on the ceiling there at the Sun?

Pathetic? cough. Asbestos? cough.

JTK, what are you talking about? cough.

The carrot-shaped pen has an appealing kind of quiet dignity.

Congrats on nearing the 1,000 post mark! I look forward to many more.

I can read I swear! Replace post with comment! Argh, Friday can't get here soon enough.

Chuck Woolery? Sign me up!

What about your hotplate, Sam? How many payments do you have left on that thing, anyway?

i love brick and champ!


Looks like you may want to give up more than 1 thing. you might even find out what the top of your desk is made of!

I love trinkets?

Prize me.

chuck Woolery boobelhead hands down
