by the numbers

I'm feeling more numerical than wordy today, which is a tad worrisome as I have a bunch of writing to get done.

Here's my life, in numbers:
*Blog posts = 1,241
*books on the to-be-read pile = 5
*listeners on BLIP = 2,035
*emails in the trash folder = 226
*days till the RO comes home = 29
*CDs in the Magic Box = 33
*Facebook friends = 58
*upcoming concerts for which I need to find a date = 5

total = 3,532

Provided my cyphering skills aren't too rusty, that's my life right now.

What's your life number?

That's a lot of Blip listeners!

OK, so you need dates for 5 concerts...I need a date for one concert...

The only other number prevalent in my life is 0.

Charlie said...

Dr. Monkey and WC both crack me up. I could say -12, but then you'd think I was talking about the weather.

The only thing I can beat you on is my TBR pile--40-some, and growing faster than I can read 'em.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You seem to have inadvertently figured out the answer to life, the universe and everything, Dr M, you smarty pants.

I'm not quite sure how that happened, Wandering Coyote. I remember getting my 50 badge just recently.
I hope we can both find concert dates! Maybe we need to start a data base.
Zero is a useful number to have around...

-12 is a nice balmy day around here, Charlie.
We have got to work on that home cloning machine if we have any hopes of reducing that TBR pile.

Dang, Dr. M stole my answer.

I don't have a life number, but my favourite number is 27 and I will be turning that number this year and that well, freaks me out. Much more pronounced than 26. Has more bite.

my equivalents numbers would be
<100 bad bad blogger
1 slacker
0 I don't know what blip is
0 I empty often
0 I have no RO
1 I have 1 cD in player
5 I think they are still there I don't look
total <107....and really probably <50

And more syllables, making it more authoritative, as well, Al. I remember 27 ... *leans back in her rocking chair*

You have a nice clean slate, Kelly. There's something to be said for that.

The numbers in my life look pretty bleak at the moment Barb!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Sorry to hear that, Jas! I hope your numbers pick up soon.

Gifted Typist said...

I'll be your date anytime

I will get the guest room ready, Gifted!
