This is my 100th post on All Things ‘Zilla! Huzzah!
- I do not like the title “All Things ‘Zilla.” Maybe I’ll post about that one day. I came up with it on the spur of the moment a few seconds after Jessica suggested I start a groom blog back in April. Whenever I tell people about the blog I am slightly embarrassed about the name. I mean, what the heck. Why couldn’t I have done a play on words with “Groom”? Like say, “Fruit of the Groom” or “Va Va Groom” or “Groom Groom Groom Groom, I want you in my Groom” or something?
- I have had four guest posts – one each by Katy, Jessica, my mom, and Jessica’s mom – and so I’ve actually only penned 96 of them myself. I am working to get Jessica and Katy to write another; Greg is writing one; and I hope Cristin will write one. I’m also devising a plan to get some other wedding bloggers to guest post for me. Shhhhh. Don’t tell them.
- My first giveaway was so fun I’m thinking of doing it again. You remember, don’t you? I wrote a song for Greg. People liked it. I liked doing it. Maybe I’ll do another for my 150th post. Or heck, for my 136th post. I don’t need to bow to the round-number-ocracy.
- For fun, here’s the first post ever! I was so young and foolish back then. The frivolity of youth, am I right?
- I’ve racked up five “Bridezilla Watches” but only two “Groomzilla Watches.” I need to remedy that imbalance. I’ve had far more than two instance of Groomzillery. I had one just this morning, in fact, which occurred mid-planning-meeting.
- Today featured one of my all-time favorite search terms that led someone to the blog: “inner sunset” -vegansaurus -“general fu.” To recap: someone was searching for “inner sunset” (a neighborhood in San Francisco where I used to live) but got distracted by all the references to vegansaurus and general fu so they eliminated those from the search. Then they found me. Hi there!
Anyhow, I was intending to make a post about one of my three Andrew-Groomsmen, Andy, because it’s his birthday, but I ran out of time. Tomorrow happens to be Drew’s birthday, and so I had planned to just inundate you with Andrewery.
To conclude, I couldn’t have written any of these 100 posts without you, my readers. Well, I suppose I could have. But that would have been a little sad. Like solo Mad Libs, for instance. Andy and I used to – heck, still do sometimes – do Mad Libs together, often with our friend Josh, and in the little booklets they suggest that you can do them by yourself. The image of a young boy doing Mad Libs all by himself use to strike us as pretty sad. Like me blogging with no one reading.
In any case: thanks for reading. You folks are pretty great. Here’s to another 100, and then maybe another 20 or so, and then a break.
