Tomorrow's the big day: my 500th blog post!  Please read here if you'd like to enter the contest for a fabulous autographed prize!

I wonder if the reason I'm focusing so much on my 500th post (besides the fact that it's quite an achievement.  I think back to all those people who told me I'd never make it to 500 posts-- just kidding.  Nobody really said that.  Most people don't even realize I have a blog) is because I missed the moment when my 1998 Honda Civic rolled over the 100,000 mile mark.  It was tragic.  I noted that I would probably hit 100,000 before I left work, but then I got caught up in some audiobook or clicking to the next song on Shuffle that I missed it.  And then, number loser that I am, I totally also missed when my car hit 111,111!  Fool!  Anyway, I'm not letting this momentous numerical occasion pass me by.  Celebrate with me, won't you?

Below are today's retro posts.  Click on the post number for the actual post.  Remember, if you comment on any post this week, you will be entered into my contest!  And tomorrow, along with being my 500th post, I will also reveal the new paperback cover for INTO THE WILD NERD YONDER!  Now read:

POST FIVE: A lengthy San Diego Comic-Con round-up where I emote about meeting Joss Whedon.

POST SIX: A very Julie post about pandas and video games.

POST SEVEN: A very Julie post about narwhals.  This one makes me laugh out loud.  And yes, I spelled narwhals wrong in the title.  See how charming my blog was in the early days?

POST EIGHT: My first in a string of celebrity look-alikes posts.

POST NINE: My second in my celebrity look-alikes posts.  This one had me crying.

I'm sorry to say I still haven't read Nerd. I did read GWS and could relate. Happy 500th post.
