We did it!

Thanks to all of YOU I passed 10,000 views yesterday!  The awesome Emy Shin captured THE screen shot of the year:

When I started this blog back in April, I got all kinds of excited over a single comment -- who knew I'd hit 10,000 views by the end of the year?  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

I've got epic computer battles to wage tonight, so I'm posting an impromptu challenge so I can go get my war face on.  

Can you overcome the following cliche?

The snow sparkled like diamonds.

Yes, the snow does sparkle in the sunshine, but the whole diamond thing is overdone, right?

How about:

The snow sparkled like a Vegas showgirl.

They do sparkle, my friends.  More than any ol' vampire ever did.  They invented the bling and the sparkle.

Your turn.

The snow sparkled like.....what?

Congrats on the views, Vicki! Well deserved!!

My brain isn't functioning properly at this early hour, but here goes...

"The snow sparkled like the eyes of a hopeful bride."

Have a great day.

Oh...and we have another anonymous critique today that needs feedback!

The snow sparkled like a thousand tiny diamonds glimmering against a sheet of iced wind.

Congrats! That's awesome Vicki.

I have no idea how many views I've had, but I've had over 5000 comments, which is pretty nuts.

The snow sparkled like the vampire cutout who's staring at me from Vicki's house.

The snow sparkled as if it were sprinkled with glitter? (That's pretty bad, huh?)
Oh well.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!

The snow sparkled like a million shards of broken glass.
Sounds a bit harsh, doesn't it?

Congratulations! Very cool. :)

And hmmm . . . the snow sparkled like a sparkler. Yeah, not so good. . . . like fireworks . . . like the broccoli in the microwave (it really does) . . . like tinfoil in a microwave. Maybe that would work. ;)

Julie Musil said... my grandma's false teeth!

Oh, and congratulations on 10k. I don't even know how to check that stuff. Maybe that's what "stats" is for on Blogger. Who knew?

Merry Christmas!
