The Velvet Blog prepares for its third blogoversary

Well, this snuck up on me, but I just realized that on June 14, 2004, I made my first blog post.

According to the traditional scheme, that calls for a gift of leather. Hm. Well, I'll leave it up to you. Seriously, no pressure.

I'm thinking of renting the Javits Center for a meet-and-greet. I figure about $300,000 for the hall, but perhaps I can bargain down to $250,000. I have around a dozen readers these days. Hey, I know this is short notice, so I don't expect more than six of you to show up.

Let's see ... that's $41,666.66 per person. Oh, did I mention we're going dutch?

So, meet me outside the main entrance tomorrow, and have a certified check made out to me. This is very important, and there will be no admission to the Javits Center without a certified check in the amount of $41,666.66. Light refreshments will be served. I'm making my famous Chex Mix. (Secret: Extra Worcestershire sauce! Shhh--don't tell anyone!)

Can't we do it in the well of the House of Representatives? My guess is a few well placed but reasonable "contributions" would come out to less than $40K a piece.

And I've heard the Navy Bean soup in the cafeteria is the bomb!

Well, bean soup and freedom fries do sound tempting.

Do you have change for a $50,000? It's all I have in my wallet.

Jim Donahue said...

Is it all right if I give you the change in nickels?

Happy anniversary. Or blogoversary. Please consider this my traditional gift of leather (virtually).

Jim Donahue said...

Oh, how thoughtful!

fermicat said...

Will you be modeling that for us, Jim?

Jim Donahue said...

Depends on the number of celebratory cocktails.

ChefNick said...

Yes, it will indeed be fun. Now that I've sold my house, do you have a spare room upstairs for me somewhere?

Oh, and my cat.
