One Hundred Posts

In first grade, I remember the 100th day of school in Mrs. Brazier’s class. Everybody was supposed to bring in 100 of something. The Egan twins brought squeaky cheese. My friend Eric brought a collection of Hot Wheels.

My item was a quilt with a hundred patches. It was made out of tricot. I have a similar one on my bed right now and I’m cuddled up in it right now (wishing I were sharing it with someone).


For this, my hundredth post, I first considered the trusty 100 random facts post, I thought that was way too much effort, so instead, I offer several small lists (which should not be considered rankings).

Happy 100th!

Can you explain "D.I. maniac"? Is D.I. a store?

I have friends that share many of your turnons, but they live far from you.

Chase said...

You need to have higher standards, you make me look like a complete bitch. :(

Silus Grok said...

@greenANDpurple: DI is a thrift store — stands for Deseret Industries — popular in the intermountain west.

Bravone said...

Happy 100th post! You're the man!

Grant Haws said...

Mazeltov on the 100th post!

C.J. said...

I wish I could introduce you to my best friend. He's single! Sadly, you live on opposite sides of the country :-(

seandmc said...

Congrats! Wat kind of recipes do you like to try?

Ben said...

Things from your list I especially liked: boxer-briefs, DI Maniac, and pizza-delivery. But I would NEVER buy boxer-briefs at DI. Nor would I deliver pizza wearing boxer briefs that I bought at DI. :)

Congrats on 100!

Mister Curie said...

Madame Curie and I were happy to see we made your MoHo blog list.

GMB, I am crushed. I thought you read MY blog! :)

Good luck with the grad school applications. I hope you get your dream job of being a professor of literature. You would be great!

and, hope the weather up north in your neck of the woods is warming up!

love and respect, awlays, slp

El Genio said...

Congratulations on your 100th post!

Today was the perfect cuddling day here, lots of crazy rain, cloudy skies, and cold temperatures. :/

I'm rooting for UCLA, but I'm obviously biased. Of course, I couldn't really fault you if grad school ended up being somewhere in Canada, I have always wanted to live there myself.

Paige said...

congrats on 100. i also didn't know what DI was. see, every day is a school day. i'm a big fan of the list. loved that.

ooh ooh and thanks for the link love. xxx

Cole said...

Cheers to this life-affirming blog lit up with your ambrosially penned--or typed--lines!

My most hearty congratulations to you, my favorite GMB, you darling, sensitive, funny, pragmatic, bumblingly elegant and happy soul!

Congrats on the centenary, if not in years, at least in posts!!!

Captain Midnight said...

Thanks for the shout out! I should introduce you to the writer of The Gaily Universe, he's Asian, which I noticed on your list of turn ons... haha.

Nik_TheGreek said...

Congratulations on the 100th!!!

Here's to the next 100


A Gay Mormon Boy said...

Thanks all for the Happy 100ths!

@green and purple & Paige: The D.I. is a magical place full of old suits and used books. If you've ever seen 'Napoleon Dynamite', it's where Napoleon buys his brown suit. Very regional.

@Kurt: You'll have to see my turn off/dealbreakers list before we call anybody a bitch.

@C.J.: Well, I see myself moving for grad school. Maybe your friend's city is in my future? Haha. I'm kind of curious from what you've mentioned about him.

@boskers: interesting set of images presented there.

@me: I knew I should have expeanded to 15. Cheers!

@El Genio: I'm sure I'll post a final list of my schools when the time comes. I could use some balmy weather. (I'm going through my third winter without a summer).

@Cole: Kind words from a kind friend with good taste.

@Captain Midnight: I love meeting new people. He sounds like a fun guy.

I hear that the University of Michigan is awesome x1000...

UToronto is fun though. I had friends there, and UMich was close enough for a weekend trip.

Ooh, if you go toronto you can go to the chalet & get chicken. Thats a big thing to think about.
