200 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall

This is my 200th post.

The End.

Go Cubs Go!

Wow. I’m kind of shocked. One because, well, that’s a lot of posts. Most of them include plenty of whining. And plenty of drunken moments. And two, because I would think I would have more. It sure seems like I’ve written a million posts. But apparently not. And I’ve actually only gotten better at the posting every day during the work week thing in recent months. And look what that means! I had a whopping 31 comments on my Mofo Delurk post! That means my mom isn’t really refreshing 100 times a day. It’s probably only like 30! So, yay!

So, thank you to everyone who commented, especially the lurkers. See? It wasn’t that bad. And hopefully you got out there and delurked on others blogs and shared the lurve.

I, myself, realized that making it a point to reply to everyone’s comment on Mofo Delurk Day was probably not the best use of my time at work today. But I did really appreciate all the comments. Really. I’m becoming more un-Grinch like every damn day.

It just meant that I didn’t get anything done. And I’m a tad overwhelmed at work these days. There usually comes a time at every job I have when my employers and bosses realize how damn awesome I am and exactly what I am capable of and what is in my repertoire. Which means shit gets added to my plate every damn minute when they finally have that A HA! moment and realize I can do so. Much. More. Because am team player. And am incapable of saying no. Because I need paychecks. Even though I am not your bitch. But did you know we can have Kristin re-create an entire workbook in Quark and save the company millions? (OK. Not millions.)

But this? Is a lot of work. And while I relish the time to get better re-acquainted with Quark (it’s been since college), I also don’t really have the time. Because we have another sales conference coming up. And I have that whole other half of my job that I’ve been neglecting.

So, I just need to take a deep breath. Possibly talk to my boss because it is manageable right now. But you don’t have to be a damn clairvoyant to see that it can and will get out of hand very soon.

How’s that rant for a 200th post?

Go Cubs Go!

So did you guys know that my blog is having a birthday here soon? It’s on October 19. Would it be weird to throw my blog a party? And would it also be weird to have the coat girl as the Grand Marshall? And would it also be quite tacky (not to mention mean) to request people bring a coat with them to the party to leave behind?

Watch your inbox for the evite. Because really? Kristabella the Person and Kristabella the Blog just need reasons to drink. Kristabella the Person drinking leads to better material for Kristabella the Blog. So then everyone is happy.

(I think we both might need some kind of professional help, though.)

Go Cubs Go!

Do you think I watch too much TV? I am sitting here in quite a pickle. (No, I’m not actually sitting in a pickle. My ass is so huge, it’d have to be some pickle. Plus the cats don’t like the smell of vinegar.) Currently my DVR, my DUAL DVR, has plans to record both TVs from 7-10 and 8-11:30, respectively. And you know what one of the things it isn’t recording? The freaking Cubs game! Because that starts at 9 PM.

So my dilemma is do I NOT watch the season finale of Top Chef and miss the last open thread of the year and instead watch the Cubs game? Because Bravo airs their shit seventeen million times? I know as a good Cubs fan, that’s what I need to do. But also? It makes me sad. Because I heart the open threads.

And maybe, just maybe, I should slap myself. The Cubs, woman! They are in the playoffs! They? WON the division! For fuck’s sake what is wrong with you?

Ouch, self! You smack hard! Oh kay! I’m recording Top Chef at 12:30. Because I already had to change the time for The Real World. Because I am that much of a loser.

Go Cubs Go! 

Remember last year when I was a month late for that NaBloPoMo thing? And I wrote every day for a month? Even on the weekends? Which included quite a few bad posts?

Well this year, I’m on top of it. And it starts November 1. So I get to participate with the rest of the blogging world. And I willbe participating. Which will be tough. Mostly because November 1-2 is the end of a sales conference. The one where those drunken kids from August come back. Including Winky. The last time these people were in town? I had the shakes every day at 3 PM. Until I had a glass of wine. Then? I was totally fine.

That’s totally normal, right? For alcoholics?

So those first two posts of the month might be a lot of crap. (Kind of like this.) Especially since the rules say no writing ahead of time and posting at a later date. *Shakes fist at NaBloPoMo Overlords*

Go Cubs Go!  

And for my next trick, tomorrow for my 201st post? I shall impress you with my 201 Things post! Mwah ha ha. 100 Things is for sissies!

Because the Cubs game will start late again tomorrow night, so I will be up late. Again.

You’re on notice, Alyndabear!

  1. I’m booking myself in, ready and raring to go.

    Happy 200th post, and soon to be birthday. You’re awesome. 😀 Even if WordPress does hate you..

    (And see how I wrote that correctly? No capitals in sight!)

  2. I’ll help you celebrate the blog birthday on the 23rd. And I can’t wait for the 201 things. If you make that, I’ll buy you an entire freakin’ bottle!

  3. Not bad at all for a 200th post! Do I say “happy blogiversary”?? LOL! I loved the first sentence by the way. Short and sweet. Wish I could capture the essence of that!!!! Not a chance I’m afraid! Thoroughly enjoyed the “mofo delurk day”…travelled far and wide leaving little bits of my wisdom and wit all over the net!!

  4. I get nothing done at work anymore either. It’s a damn shame. It’s also a good thing that my boss is CLUELESS about computers.

  5. Oooh! My blog and I like parties.

  6. At 200, you’re blogalicious, Baby… Glad to hear you taped Top Chef in lieu of missing Go Cubs, go… Glad Kristabella the person slapped up Kristabella the live thread ho. 😉

  7. instead of go cubs go, it should be stop cubs stop for playing such horrendous baseball last night. and yes, drinking more does stop the shakes. i’m gonna buy us matching shirts that say “i need a drink to stop these shakes.”

  8. I’m all for drinking. Happy 200th. Happy early blog b-day.

  9. I didn’t de-lurk since I’m not a lurker, plus, I wasn’t home. YAY for so many posts. I wonder how many I’m up to now…

  10. OMG, the poor Cubs right now …

    I watched Top Chef AFTER the Cubs game last night. Because I am a total insomniac.
