500 Followers! YAHOO! (Not a plug for Yahoo site, but rather a exclamation of excitement.)

Hello all,

Well, 500 followers could not have come at a worse time.  I am currently on my way to the Happiest Place On Earth with the fam (I know you're jealous Tammy) and so the Blog O' Cheese will be on hiatus for the next week or so.

If we are both lucky, I will be able to do a post or two while standing in line for that dreaded tea cup ride.  If you are even more lucky, I will post a picture of my vomit after the ride for you.

It is only fitting that my 500th follower is my best friend, Steve.  It's about time he jump aboard the Cheese train.

I promise, upon my return, sometime shortly after January 24, I will be ordering the Chinese and picking it up in my Barney costume.

That is, as long as my followership does not drop below 500.


Bless you all for your continued readershipdom.

Hooray, hooray! Congratulations!

I'm glad 500 people decided to "follow the yellow cheese road" to Oz! Let's all sing, "People all over the world, join hands; join the cheese train, cheese train"!

I don't know if I'm the Tammy you meant, or if you meant your SIL, but this Tammy is jealous!! In fact, I was just making reservations for our trip there this year. And I only have 9 months to talk Luvpilot into it. (He vowed to never go there again after our last trip).

Pearl said...

Very nice!

If only you had room in the luggage for that Barney suit. How awesome would the footage be if you were standing in line at Disneyland in a Barney suit...

Congratulations! 500 is a real milestone. Now, if only you could get all of your followers to give you a dollar.......

Oilfield Trash said...

This is just effing awesome. Congrats to you.

Have fun on the vacation.

It is ironic that you hit 500 today and I broke the 100 barrier.

Kristen said...

I am both jealous and glad I am not you all rolled into one. Jealous of the trip to Disney World because both the hubby and I never went as kids, once we got out of college we went and continued to go every year and then as we added kids the trips have been few and far between. Glad I am not you in a Barney costume ording an egg roll! Have fun!!

mintifresh said...

I cannot wait!

Have fun on your trip!

Cinette said...

Congrats and enjoy your trip. Better you than me; I hate crowds!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Eva Gallant said...

Congrats on your 500 followers!
I'm trying to get there. Looking forward to seeing you in that Barney costume!

Mormon Surrogate said...

Have fun and congrats!

Diane J. said...

Have fun! No one better drop out or I'm going to have to start a Facebook page "Barney and Chinese or ...okay, I'm not that quick on something catchy, but I'll think of something.

Second thought, no one stop following, because by the time I come up with something catchy, we may all have great, great, great-grandchildren experiencing February 22, 2222. In which case my days of thinking of something catchy would be long over.

Let's just go back to HAVE FUN!

Melinda said...

Yes but will you get to talk to Teri Hatcher this time? I expect someone even bigger or...I don't know what I'll do but...yeah.

Pat Tillett said...

Emmy said...

Congrats!! Oh and when you do your Barney post please put links to your 400 and 300 posts :)

Allyson & Jere said...

Well THAT is awesome! Way to go. And I'm proud to say I was totally in the 400 wave. hahahaha

Oh, and I'm super jealous that YOU get to go to Disneyland for a week. Then again, you're a teacher and you SUPER deserve it! Have fun.

I better talk you up on Twitter while you are away....

T said...

ack - just mentioning the teacups is making me dizzy.

Can I pretend you're on hiatus because of a really long appointment with an IRS auditor, because then I'm totally not jealous...

Joann Mannix said...

Congratulations, Cheese. I'm going to shoot you an email right now. We're headed to Disney tomorrow. Are you world or land, because I am NOT traveling to California for a day of magic.

Sue said...

Well, shoooooooot. I came in at Follower #501. I really, really would have loved to have been the one to send you shopping for that get-up. Or do you already have the suit? Humph. Still looking forward to the show.

"Miss Bee" said...

Hooray! Yay for Steve!

Have fun but make it interesting... you have 500 people waiting to hear stories about the trip when you get back!

Unknown Mami said...

You know what the worst part of all of this is? I am craving Chinese food like nobody's business. Wouldn't it be great if you could deliver it to me in a Barney costume?

From Tracie said...

I am very excited now.

Since you're out of town until the 24th, could you send me your address? And a spare key? It's ok to say no to the spare key idea but I'll for sure need your address. kthanks.

500 folowers? You suck. And I'm jealous.

I can't WAIT for the pic of your puke. Or the Barney suit.

Congrats on your 500 followers! And when you are at Disneyland, goose Jack Sparrow for me, would you? Or at least Goofy? how about if I say PRETTY please? Or if I let you goose Snow White, too?

You went to Disney and didn't invite your loyal followers along? Revolt!

Then it is time to gather up your favorite purple PJs ( I know that is where the Barney suit is really coming from, already had it didn't you?)and get ready to share the crunchy noodles!

M-Cat said...

Well congrats on making 500. Be sure to get a nice close up of the vomit. We want to identify the chunks!

lifeshighway said...

500 and counting Whoo hoo... I can only dream.

Georgette said...

I AM SO EXCITED! Not because you have 500 followers, but because of the whole Barney thing. I mean, yay.. 500. But seriously. I can't wait!

Glen said...

well it is a small world after all... enjoy

lisleman said...

nice numbers - enjoy yourself spinning, dropping and hanging upside down. I don't get the Barney - Chinese connection.

sacdaddy said...

By being number 500, I was hoping you'd let me swing by and pick up the Blue Mtn Dew prize pack.

MiMi said...

You're gonna have so much fun! I can't wait to see you in the Barney costume. Don't get killed, tho, 'k?

Ms Bibi said...

Have fun, don't throw up too much and here's hoping the lines are short.

Jason, as himself said...

You better hurry back! Some followers can be very fickle.

Not me. I may give everything else up, but never my cheese. Ever.

Sandra said...

Disney with the fam, eh....we will never see you again...
Nobody comes out of Disney with their faculties intact.
So sorry.
