Or, THOUSAND (one).

Man. Given that the universe is a base-ten universe this occasion is of major significance not only for me and for you, but for the universe as well.

Given such gravity, I feel I should take this opportunity to examine all of time from this perspective of my 1000. First we will look back. Then we will look under the soles of our shoes. Then we will look into the soul of the future.

Ready?

Looking back
    Names = 2 (Tehachapiltdownman, Thmazing's Thmusings)
    Svithes = 149
    Books discussed > 140
    Posts mentioning male genitalia even though I claim to hate such fixations ≈ 10
    Labels I use = 3
    Thvlogs = 10
    Thvlogs yanked by YouTube = 2
    Words in lds-eros posts > 20,000
    Placentas = 1
    Disgusting things > 1
    Animated gifs ≈ 6
    Runins with the law ≈ 1
    Shirts sold by Thtore = 4
    Lunch dates made in comments ≈ 1
    Dickinson parodies = 1
    Number of blogger originally linked to = 2
    Fish > 25
    Things blamed on NPR ≈ 10 (including this blog's very existence)
    Thimprovs and Abstructs > Q


Here and now
    It's been a good run, hasn't it? I am, overall, quite pleased with what this blog is, now, these thousand posts. When I started Tehachapiltdown man on August 8, 2005 I had no idea what my plans were. Looking back (see above) this is obvious.

    When I left Tehachapi, I needed a new name. Several made suggestions, but Cricket suggested Thmusings which was too perfect not to adopt. And so I did.

    But now I am changing the name again. Individual posts will still be called thmusings, but, now, welcome to Thutopia. The redesign is mostly completed (though never entirely) and I do, as the banner says, Welcome you to Thutopia.


Looking forward
    I think ambition is important. And now that the ides have past, I think it's a good time for me to show you what's in Thutopia's future:

    It is sad.

  4. You had breaking news in there twice. I can only assume that one of them meant you would break the news, rather than just break it out.

    I forgot:

    I have also sold a Class Hijinks shirt (no longer available).

    And perhaps it's worth noting that I estimate between 3 and 4 thousand comments.
