three is a magic number
Oh. My. God. Three simple words to celebrate the completion of my third year of words—that’s right, guy2k is three today!
Another year, another 300-plus posts, trips to Netroots Nation in Austin and the Democratic National Convention in Denver, and, to top it all off, my jump to the editor’s chair at Firedoglake just three—no, make that four—weeks ago. Quite the magical year. . . as personal/political blogger years go.
My only regret (OK, it is doubtful that this is my only regret, but it is the one to which I will limit myself today) is that since joining forces with FDL, I have neglected this little place where it all began. The editorial workload has surprised me a tad, so I have not found the rhythm that allows me to both do my new job and bang out posts that meet my absurdly strict standards. If I have a new year’s resolution, it would be to write more.
But, this month, alas, not so much. What started as “a journal of politics, popular culture and mixed drinks” has delivered precious little on all three fronts. . . until now.
In honor of my third anniversary, my move to Firedoglake, and my annual obligation to include at least one topical cocktail a year, I present to you the Flaming Fireman:
2 oz Goldschlager
2 oz 151 proof rum
2 oz triple sec
Three simple ingredients. Mix. Set aflame. Slam. Enjoy (or so I’m told).
Thank you all for making me part of your 2008. Here’s to a triple-good 2009.
