Ok, in all the excitement of the World Cup and all, I completely missed an important landmark with regards to this blog: the reaching – and passing – of the 2000-mark in the number of comments in this blog since my move from the Haloscan comment system to Movable Type.

Of course, theoretically speaking, I probably passed the 2000-mark long time ago if you count the Haloscan comments, but since the Haloscanners don’t want to release the comments unless I pay US$12, I’ve long since forgotten about them.

Anyway, the 2000th comment was made by Mr Tigerjoe, the self-proclaimed God’s Gift to Women, and unrepentant Chelsea supporter to boot. So congratulations, Joe, and feel free to get drunk to celebrate on your own time. šŸ˜‰
