Whadda party that 2000 was! Did YOU win?

Once upon a time we were waiting for a party to get started.

The morning of resembled waiting for a volcano to erupt.  There were only 4 more followers to link up to reach the magical 2000 goal, and I had to leave for work. Nail biter! And then Kolein was in comments counting down like every 3 seconds FREAKING. ME. OUT. In a good way of course. 🙂

And then the meter flipped… DINGDINGDINGDING

And then all mayhem broke loose! Bloggers dashed in a crazed fashion into the streets chanting, “KO LEEN! KO LEEN!” Why I don’t know! Who left her in charge ?!? Must have been her crazy countdown that caused sheer pandemonium. But she was so on it! She roped off the entryway to the party room, got things back in control, and turning my way, yelled, “LET’TER RIP!”

“No no NO! Not THAT kind!” (Ok, that was a bad joke.)

And so I did. (not the bad kind)  🙂

    It was a blast watching and participating and yes! just coming to the party to read Kolein’s comments was a treat in itself!

    You SO deserve it!!! (and it gets the paint out from under the fingernails!)
