10,051 hits later....

I've always been nobody - on campus, in the blogosphere. I still have no official name. 1 year and 24 days, 88 posts later, I've made friends, garnered attention, and most importantly, had my say in a world where the big and powerful push us little women around.

And I suppose that's why I love the blogosphere - because in it all you need is DSL and you can have a voice. This 10,000 hit mark is seven times less than lgf gets in a day. But I - and marginalized Iraqi women and bullied sixth-graders and people whose opinions don't fit the party line - we all get to say what we think.

And that is why the blogosphere is a gift to the world - an equalizer and something that levels the playing field.

Sometime in my next 10,000 hits, I hope to talk more about an issue I care a lot about - Israel - since I've greviously neglected her. I hope to figure out what Trackback is and then figure out how to use it. I should also figure out what XML and RSS are so that I can give intelligent answers as to why I don't use them. And I've just introduced the West Wing quote of the day, because that's just so much fun.

Free speech. A beautiful thing.

Dude - its not an individual voice that makes up the blogosphere - its many voices together. There are many bloggers who have Israel as a topic - let er rip!

What, another hackneyed "York U is socialist and I'm a marginalized neo-con fighting wishy-washy liberal opporession, but glad to love and use wishy-washy liberal free-speech" blog? This ought to be fun.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
