Well, this is my 500th post. At least, now that I have merged my previous attempts to blog spread across 3 blogs into one blog. But, the post counter says 500! So 500 I'll take. Now if I could get the reader count to 500....
So, what to say in a 500th blog post?
I don't know. Probably just ramble about it being 500. Although I'll share this pic from icanhascheezburger.com:

You know, some days are like that. You really want to be the 1 winner. Instead, you get sucker punched. 2 quick thoughts, though:
1.) You still got to drink a Dr Pepper. Which, if you like Dr Pepper is great. If you don't, sub for something you do like. And realize: it's not always exciting to live life. But you have to live the dull days to get to the good ones.
2.) You're not the only one to get sucker punched. There are days that life is just a pain. It really is. Even St. Paul contemplated how much happier he'd be if he was dead. I think about how much life insurance I've got and how I'm worth more dead than alive, if money's the only factor. The only way I can pay for my kids to go to college is to be dead. I've lost jobs before, I've had 'sure-thing' interviews turn into ....well, nothing. I don't take comfort that things go bad for you as well, but I take comfort knowing that it's not personal. The universe doesn't hate me specifically. The universe is just messed up. I believe it's related to that whole Adam/Eve/Snake/Fruit thing that went down a while ago. After that, bad stuff happens, because the place is falling to pieces. Can I help you? Probably not much, but know you're not alone. You've got two choices: turn your back on the world, or be who you were made to be anyway. Which is going to get you sucker punched more times than you'll win.
But what's the point otherwise?
For the 500th time,
