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!)
