Ka-CHING!!! The 10,000th post, and I've got it.

That's right, baby! Numero 10,000. That's a "1" and four zeros.

Pay no attention to the numbers on your screen, because they don't mean squat. I have just taken the 10,000th post well in advance. I can do this any time I want to because I am a wealthy celebrity who can do anything he wants. In was easy. I got up this morning and said to myself, "I think it's time to take the 10,000th post on the Mother of all BS threads on that silly Mudcat Cafe Discussion Forum where they idolize me (which shows at least that they are not entirely stupid or without hope of redemption).

It's like renting out a particular motel room. If you want to do it 3 years in advance, no one is going to stop you, are they?

Well, I just took the 10,000th post and that's all that matters.

And there's nothing you can do about it. In particular, there's nothing Amos can do about it. (grin) Amos is one of those people who derives a sense of meaning from attacking public figures such as myself who have made their mark in the world (which he hasn't).

Tear your hair out, Amos. I've got this 10,000th post and there's nothing you can do about it whatsoever. In fact, compared to this post, anything you should decide to post between now and the rest of this thread will be really quite superfluous. This post has it all covered.

I may drop in occasionally to give you all a useful piece of advice or inspiration in between now and the 9,099th post. It depends on how much time I can spare from a full and busy schedule entertaining my adoring fans and writing bestsellers.

Did you read my last one? It's called "Get A Life". Available at all good bookstores and on, so do like it says and order one now.
