2000

This is the 2000th post here at Wonderduck's Pond.  If you had told me back on July 8th, 2005, that I'd eventually put up another 1999 posts, or that I'd still be blogging six-and-a-half years later, I think I would have laughed at you.  I would have laughed even harder if you told me that people would actually be interested in reading my mental meanderings.  But yet, here we are in December of 2011... I'm typing the two-thousandth post, you're reading the two-thousandth post (though I'm not sure you're interested), and I can't imagine what it would be like to not be blogging anymore.  How incredible.
Thank you, folks.  I appreciate it!

2 Cool, but I don't know how far back I'll read... :-)

6000 or so comments.

Much better ratio than I've got here....

3 Of all the people whose blogs I read, yours regularly has the most in-depth coverage, of just about everything you post about. You watch an anime series, and we get a series of posts with in-depth commentary on every episode. You watch an F1 race, and we get great coverage (hell, I went from "is that the thing like Indycar?" to watching every race this year, just from reading your posts on it!) You do a post on Midway and it's not just commentary, but scholarship, talking about stuff even my fairly-detailed histories of the war only hint at.

You've made my life better and more interesting, and I appreciate it. Here's hoping we can all hang out in Austin at the track...
