Hooray for us!

Old hands might remember that today is our wedding anniversary. Our fifteenth, in fact. Fifteen is crystal, but neither of us likes crystal and, anyway, we break stuff.

So we bought ourselves this pretty box instead. Dealer thought it was early Victorian. It was once a music box – we didn’t even notice the holes in the front – but it’s just a coffer now. It would have been a damn loud music box.

Oh, and it’s sweasel.com’s birthday. Its seventeenth, in fact. That’s right – I’ve been blogging longer than I’ve been married. Do you believe I’ve been gibbering nonsense every weekday for seventeen years?

Truth is, I don’t know how to stop.

Happy Birthday, Stoaty, and Happy Anniversary*2!

And there is NO ONE whose nonsense gibbering I appreciate and enjoy as much!

Felicitations, Weasie, to you and Uncle B. as well. Just think. If you hadn’t started the Weasel Media Empire, all of us morbid folks would still have our celebrity soon-to-be-demised picks just rolling around in our heads.

A job well done!

Hooray! Happy Anniversary on the marriage and the blog. I like your anniversary present. I don’t remember when I started reading your blog; before you moved to England though.

Well, congratulations, and thank you for running a place I can come to for a smile every day.

So don’t stop!

Hurrah for Weasel and uncle Badger!

The time, she does fly.

You are the weasel beneath my wings.

Leave some drummies for every one else, please.

Happy Anniversary Stoaty & Uncle Badger!

And Happy Anniversary on the blog birthday!

Your gibbering nonsense is the second thing I open in the morning after gmail and before Ace and James Lileks’ The Bleat and I’ve been enjoying it immensely for a good part of those 17 years.

Good lord, is the Bleat sill going? I used to love Lileks.

ExpressoPB, I arrived permanently with my cat on Thanksgiving Day of 2008. I flew back and forth for years and years, though.

You’re certain it’s not a dibbuk box?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
