Why?? This is my 225th POST!! I somehow neglected to celebrate my 100th post OR my 200th post. So, I decided I would celebrate my 225th post. I want to really do something cool, but I think it's probably too late for that. I've already left it kind of lame because I didn't plan ahead. I'm sorry for that. My next big "double O" will be a grand affair to be sure (unless I get there and don't notice, like I did with my 100 and 200). Want to know what else is pretty nifty? My blog will be 2 years old this July. I didn't celebrate the first birthday. I was in Bahrain, visiting Not the Momma and didn't even post that day. How boring, huh?

225 posts people. That's amazing!

225 years ago it was 1783. That was the year the Treaty of Paris was signed. If you think about it, that's a big deal. The Treaty of Paris was the document that, for all intensive purposes ended the Revolutionary War. So, while we all celebrate July 4, 1776 as the birth of our nation, Britain still had some sort of claim on the US territories until 1783 (technically until 1784 when they ratified, but for MY purposes, we're saying 1783, because that is when OUR congress signed it.) Thank you US History 101, eh?

225 Months ago it was July in 1989. I was 8. I didn't care about what was going on, other than I was between the third and fourth grade, and I was having a good time. I was busy playing with my Nintendo, running through sprinklers and playing barbies with my BFF (well, the second F is debatable now) Nikki. I was having fun playing around. Not the Momma turned 14 that year. Because of that he thinks he robbed the cradle.

225 Days ago it was 8/28/2007. This is what I had to say that day. Nice, huh? Not so important now, unless you say expect when you say except, or use the word "you're" or "its" wrong. It was also the day that this article came out on CNN about Senator Larry Craig. Nice, huh?

225 minutes ago, we were getting ready for dinner; 225 seconds ago, I was talking to Not the Momma about auxiliary fuel tanks for his Truck.

225. What a fun number.

Stay tuned! I'm also celebrating this milestone with answers to the questions that internetters ask Google, that apparently I have the answer to.
