On a lot of TV shows, they make a big deal out of the 100th and 200th show. Sometimes they’ll put something in to mirror the event, like Frasier which placed his 1000th radio show on the show’s 100th and so on. Sometimes they’ll have a flashback to before the series got started or something like that. Sometimes, though, they make a big deal out of the 100th show by making it suck. They’ll just have flashbacks to episodes that we’ve already seen or they’ll interview the cast and they’ll all laugh at jokes that even a laughtrack would have trouble with.

So in honor of a stupid television convention, I’m going to make this post suck. I’m going to do flashbacks to important moments in this blog.

On February 22, 2005*, I sat in front of a keyboard and wrote the first post on Hit Coffee, which was then hosted on blogspot. Close your eyes and imagine me doing that.

On April 10, 2005, I sat in front of my keyboard and wrote the first post on the new WordPress-powered Hit Coffee. Much like this Very Special 1000th post, it said absolutely nothing of consequence.

On April 12, 2005, I sat in front of my keyboard and wrote the 100th post. It actually dealt with anniversaries, so was not entirely inappropriate to the occasion.

On January 29, 2007, I sat in front of my keyboard and wrote the 500th post.

On February 27, 2008, I sat in front of my keyboard and wrote this post, a useless 1000th post detailing the exciting and dramatic** life of sitting in front of a keyboard and writing posts. I hope that you all are duly excited.

* – Ironically, I’ve been mulling over a retrospective on the Hit Coffee and the directions it’s taken over the last three years because of a meme I got tagged with a couple months ago. That might have made a more interesting post and a more useless one (is there anything less entertaining than a blogger talking about his blogging?), which would have made it triply appopriate. That would have taken too much time, though, and so you got this. If I’d thought this through more, I would have done a third anniversary spectacular and a 1000th vote special and have driven away every last reader that I have.

** – Also ironically, this blog can be very dramatic at times. This site has caused quite a bit of drama recently.
