Eight years ago today I registered ThisCrazyTrain.com


I know some of y'all have tried to pinpoint the very first post, but can't, because I migrated Facebook content into the blog that pre-dates the registration.

The first real blog post, where I hit "Create post" the first time to add original real-time content, is this post, entitled, "Garlic". It was this overheard phone conversation that made me stand up, toss aside my T.O. Night newspaper and shout, "That's it, this crazy train needs a goddamn website," and thus, a bonafide legend was born.

I am serious about a get-together to celebrate this anniversary. It truly is time to meet some of you and I'm thinking late Spring or early Summer.

Somewhere in the bowels of the York Concourse, we can meet up, go for a drink and possibly have a lot of dinner things find their way into our gullets.

Thank you to those who have remained loyal for so long. It's pretty cool that many readers are now friends offline ... so a get together is indeed, long overdue.

Congratulations, Cindy, on eight years of "fun"! I'm looking forward to the craziness that lies around the next bend.

Thank you, too, for allowing me to contribute to your train ride!

I'm still hoping for a Ride for Heart meetup but I can't say no to drinks. Honestly I'm a little nervous about meeting a bunch of people as crazy as I am...

CJ Smith said...

I'm going to do the ride but on my own, not as a team. Happy to say hi to anyone that day

Woo! Glad to hear it, CJ, although the likelihood of anyone finding each other in that crowd is slim. The registration price goes up by $10 on March 2nd so don't forget to register ahead of then. Also, don't be shy about posting your donation page to your blog. I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd help contribute to your target.

Forget me.
I have neither passport or enough money to enter any of the realms of Canadian real estate---public, commercial, or private.

Congratulations! You have made me laugh so many times over these past years and for that I thank you. I would love to meet you in person if possible this spring/summer. Let us know the details.
