100th POST

My 100th post!

This started as a poker blog called FELT UP a little over a year ago. It evolved into a space for writing about pop culture and such called THROWIN' ROCKS. Since I started it I have:

•Lost almost 100 pounds (that's about a pound per post for those of you not very good at math. I still need to write another 50 posts or so if you know what I mean...)

•Doubled my readership from one to two people (that's a 100% increase for the math challenged).

•Started going to the dentist again after five years and had a root canal, six fillings, scaling and planing, and learned how to bloody well brush my teeth.

•Finally got up the nerve to go to a doctor for only the second time in the past 25 years and was incredibly relieved to find out that I don't have diabetes, but I do have hypothyroidism, which I now take medicine for.

•Completed 18 paintings and sold five.

•Memorized every U.S. state capital.

•Watched over 200 movies (again, that's one every other day for the numerically impeded).

•Finished 5th in the 4th Annual Turkey Cup (the 3rd Annual Turkey Cup was the poker tourney that originally inspired me to start this blog).

•Realized how old and how young I am at the same time.

•Discovered the joy of betting on fantasy football.

• Got a driver's license after not having one for 17 years.

It's been a great year, and 2011 is going to be even better, but I'm still unemployed and looking for a place to move, so if you know of anything, let me know!

Thank you for your continued support (both of you).


  1. Half your readership is damn impressed!

  2. one of only 4 blogs that make me laugh consistently, and it's always a quality read. Keep it up. (The other 3 are porn bloopers sites)
