I should have something that shows I've learned something for all the years I've spent here at the Great Orange Satan, but alas, I have to let my record speak for itself. I just wanted to acknowledge to myself that I now have 20,000 comments and just 53 diaries. I especially prize the comments where people have replied to me, so thanks to you - yes, even a couple of you who HR'd me because I still learned from the experience. My total "comment ratings" or "tips" are 31,450, so about 1 1/2 tips/comment. Could be better, I suppose, but I don't always go for the tips.
If I have it figured correctly, my tip jar will be my 20,000th comment. Then again, if I'm wrong, it will show that I have learned nothing in these eight years. Be gentle, I've never had 20,000 comments before (and never will again).
BTW, I know there are many who have more than 20,000 comments - I'm astounded at the numbers put up by some of you. Given what I know of my own habits with commenting, you are really prodigious and I know most of your names because I've been tipping you along with countless others.
Peace be upon everyone, everywhere.
