There’s always something to howl about

Blogoff Post #102: Who’s the most competitive . . . ?

They laughed when I sat down at the keyboard, but, when I know what I want to say, I can write faster than my fingers can type.

When my son was younger, I used to drive around with my car full of kids. Once I taught a bunch of four-year-olds to sing Tell me what’d I say, the Ray Charles classic.

But our all-time favorite car game was called “Who’s the most competitive?”

“I’m the most competitive.” “No, I’m the most competitive.” The game could last for hours.

This is post number 102. Who’s the most competitive? I’M the most competitive…

      No doubt. The only regret you may one day have is when someone else takes on the challenge & you realize you could have hit 200 & put it out of reach. Well done. You are the Top Dog today.

    3. [...] Time for some sleep! September 26, 2006 At around 8pm, I woke up from a late afternoon nap to see that Ardell still had over 30 posts to write and I got a worried… So I took out a Newcastle and started writing. I figured that should it become necessary, I could pass along a few extra posts to Ardell… (Greg’s not the only one with a competitive streak!) But she obviously didn’t need my help as she has just made it to 100 on her own! Awesome stuff!!! [...]

      Congrats Greg!!! That was a lot of fun to watch and informative at the same time! Awesome stuff!

      Congratulations Greg! Sorry to keep you up so late :-) I just made it under the wire. I seriously felt like I was going to croak at least three times.

      I’m glad we both made it.

      Congratulations! Who’s going to call the Guiness Book of World Records? Now, sleep… sleep… sleep.

      Congratulions Greg. It was clear how intent and determined you can be. It is also clear that an expert can just sit and type, brain dump, meaningfuul content. I hope some that are considering blogging get inspired. Larry

      Congrats to both. Tired just reading the posts.

      I finally made time to read everything today, correcting any errors I spotted and commenting where I had somethting to add to the conversations. Thanks to everyone for being a part of this!

    11. [...] They both did it, as we all knew they would. Greg and Ardell both finished a full 101 posts in a 24 hour period, and then both surprised us with a 102nd post just under the wire. Greg’s 102nd was in his signature every-word-a-link-style, while Ardell’s last post was an inspirational change-the-world one. Thanks to everybody who participated in this betting market! With Greg the winner, his stock closes at $100 and its holders are cashed out accordingly. Ardell’s stock closes at $0. To add insult to injury, Greg himself was the winner of our betting pool, netting himself a cool $6,027. Ardell did not participate in the pool, unless her login name is test1, gqTsuK8w, walkable, or tyr. Ardell’s Seattle compatriot Eric demonstrated his loyalty by betting big on her…alas, capitalism puts little stock on loyalty and his results weren’t, ah, so good. Now that this is over, maybe you can let me get back to enjoying my Lake Tahoe vacation, which is the only reason I didn’t participate and whip Greg’s butt. [...]

    13. [...] Called the “Eye of God” or “Eye of Sauron”, it is the Helix Nebula, located a short 650 light years away in the constellation Aquarius. It would take 2.5 light years to cross it (although cyber-blogger Greg claims he can do it in 24 hours and still have time for a nap) A nebula is a dying sun-like star. The photo was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. It has been circulating the net since 2003 but I just received it in my email last week. Go figure. Source: Wikipedia. Listen to this podcast [...]
