I see the lights, I see the party lights



My good buddy and local L.A. blogger skippy had an anniversary:

happy 5th blogiversary!** to skippy!

that's right, this site has been blogging continuously at this space for 5 years today! we can hardly believe it ourselves! one would think we'd have something useful to do, but no, we've been disseminating news and snark for the past 5 complete turns of the calendar.

And he even mentions this humble blog:
the list goes on: taylor marsh; sailor of vidiot speak; lindsay beyerstein and maha; steve of the carpetbagger report, and steve of steveaudio; dave of seeing the forest; everyone at the american politics journal; man eegee and blogtopus and badtux the snarky penguin.

All I can say is well done, my friend. Skippy was one of the first A-list bloggers to give me a link, back almost 3 years ago (the SteveAudio 3 year anniversary is coming up this September).
Since then we've gotten to know him and his lovely wife, socialized with them on several occasions, and consider them good friends. In fact, here's a picture of the happy couple:



He has a unique voice, and unique blog, and as someone famous once said, "they say he's a righteous dude".

Keep it up skippy, and we'll try to help you get to 2,000,000 hits!
