Intermission

We're going to have to extend Theme week by one day because I really couldn't let today go by without mentioning something...

This is my 500th post.

500 times I have sat at my computer and tried to make you laugh. I've told you about my friends and my family, my childhood and my life. I've told you about the things that make me laugh and (much more frequently) the things that just plain piss me off.

And, occasionally, the care and feeding of dragons.

Yes, I realize they haven't all been funny. Some have been boring, some downright disturbing, but they were all written for you guys. Every single time I sat at this keyboard, I wondered what I could write that you would want to read.

Okay... Most of the time I was just writing whatever was making my brain hurt at the time.

Still, it was all for you guys.

500 feels like a milestone for me. I never really thought I'd see this many rants and ravings or that anyone would bother to read them.

I just wanted to take today to tell you guys that I do appreciate you, the readers, and all the support, suggestions, and ideas you've given me over the years.

Thank you for humoring me.

Listen to me... Acting like I have human emotions or something...

I need to go kill someone.

And thank you for the 500 times I've sat down and had a good laugh at your exploits. You have some great writing talent behind your posts.

Presumably the 500 doesn't include Goblin Smithy, so this might actually be past 500 for a lot of your readers.

Thanks Dave. I really appreciate your hard work. I know it's tough sometimes, but I'm glad you do it. It made me so happy when you came back from hiatus that I told all my friends about it. Most of them had no idea what I was raving about, but I didn't care.
My favorite GM was back.

Well congrats at the 500th one. I always had good times with your writing and sometimes even got inspired for my own blog. (guess how hard it is to translate your stuff?)

Keep on!

Just for that you should write two theme weeks worth of material.

You're getting soft. (that's what she said)

I could hug you for such nice speach... But I enjoy life, so commiting suicide is not exactly one of my actual goal.

OMG!! [GM]Dave grew something resembling emotions?! DAVE QUICK!!! GO FEED JORMY THE FIRST 42 PLAYERS YOU COME INTO CONTACT WITH!!!!

Wow. 500 posts. That's a level of dedication that I personally would never have been able to achieve. Kudos to you, my angry drunken friend. May we have many more stories of revenge and ownage.

thank you GM Dave for all your work, you've really progressed as a writer, even if you rarely refer back to the theme of the blog, Punishing Gil Sellers!

500? Really? :)

Dave you have brought many laughs and smiles to many readers and if that isn't motivation enough to keep writing i don't know what is.

Hell it almost makes me motivated.

Almost.

I love you dave ; ;... no homo

What?!?

"Some have been boring ..."

Um ... please, Effendi, may this humble one point out when Your Excellency has made an error?

OK, OK, perhaps not, already. Not with the pointing. Or with the talking about it.

Just with the religious reading, the loyal lol-ing, the grateful guffawing, the antici

pation.

Thank you. A grateful nation or six are in your debt.
