Three Thousand Posts

I just thought I would pause to mention that the previous post, about Maritz’s column being on unplanned leave, is this blog’s 3,000th post. Not bad for a blog which has been active, for all intents and purposes, since the 17th of April 2005.

3,000 posts in 1,583 days. 1.895 posts per day. One post every 12 hours, 39 minutes and 50.4 seconds.

Suddenly I don’t feel so bad about those days where I wrote nothing. The busy days quite easily made up for them.

Mondays with Maritz is absent

Samuel writes: A couple weeks ago Maritz submitted a column and I rejected it as the main topic was a topic which, whilst newsworthy, was a topic which I had deliberately banned from this blog and, as far as I could tell, there was only one sentence in the column which was not about this topic, and it was an incoherent mention of her cat and “orange”.

Last week Maritz did not submit a column, and this week I don’t think she will either, because I received a call from her this morning at a not quite convenient hour (although with caller ID blocked, and me not having actually spoken to Maritz vocally before, it could have been anyone) informing me that she can’t submit her column this week because her computer is not working, followed by an incomprehensible phrase which may have been Russian, followed by the words “of do soon, must go for workings”. I tried to ask her to repeat herself, but she rushed off.

With any luck Maritz will be back next week.
