That’s right, Bossy is celebrating the fact she has written her three-thousand-and-fourth post here on her blog!
Of course what Bossy actually wanted to celebrate was the writing of her three-thousandth post, but she lost the screen shot she took of that moment because that’s just how sentimental Bossy is, emphasis on mental.
Three thousand and four posts. And it only took four years and eight months and eleven days spent not curing cancer or inventing a tool that would make spackling around a skylight simple, or coming up with a solution for the fact that Target has already sold out of Bossy’s purple Christmas tree lights.
But where were we? Ah yes, we were not curing cancer or inventing anything worthwhile, we were in the middle of this three-thousand-and-fifth post. Because that’s Bossy. Giving until it hurts (you.)

Golden saysDecember 6, 2010 at 11:55 am
We bought a prelit artificial tree and have used those purple target lights in the past. Do you want me to see if I still have them? I will send them to you. Just email me.
Frimmy saysDecember 6, 2010 at 12:14 pm
You keep on hurting us thusly. It’s a good kind of hurt.
Bonnie saysDecember 6, 2010 at 12:15 pm
I know right? You’d think the marketers could take a couple of months off and get back into sync with everyone else!
Congrats on 3005! That’s a lot of posts!
Lori saysDecember 6, 2010 at 12:16 pm
Well keep giving, Bossy, because it hurts so good! Congrats on such an achievement!
WebSavvyMom saysDecember 6, 2010 at 12:32 pm
–>Bossy doesn’t look a day over three thousand.

Happy Blogaversary and thank you for the sweet FB comment about my new bloggy venture. You inspire me.
kathleen saysDecember 6, 2010 at 12:45 pm
I saw purple lights at Target on Friday. Want me to go get You some? I wonder why purple lights would be sold out? Not judging, just not a commonly used color on Christmas. I’d be glad to send you some. Us holiday makers have to stick together. Let me know- I mean it. Email me.
Cindy saysDecember 6, 2010 at 1:12 pm
Christmas creep is ridiculous, on July 3rd I went shopping for some last minute grilling/party supplies, and most of the stuff was gone, and they were already putting up inflatable Christmas lawn ornaments, it’s horrible.
On a more serious note, c’mon bossy, using the word “rape” so casually is tactless and maybe something to consider stopping. Just think about it.

Congrats on your three-thousand-and-fourth post my friend… Many more to come I’m sure!

3005 posts = how many glasses of wine?
Major miilestone, thanks, Bossy, for putting these posts out here. Purple lights. My friend in Pittsburgh wears only purple and black, except for some white accents here and there. And maybe some summer dresses for around the house. Every once in a while she goes on a color shopping spree but others benefit from the purchases in short order.
When my brother lived in Texas he had a white Christmas tree with Kentucky blue ornaments. Sick puppy.
The Zadge saysDecember 6, 2010 at 2:06 pm
Same thing at my Tar-jay with my blue lights! But the stock guy told me they re-stock every morning!! Happy Purple Holidays!
Avitable saysDecember 6, 2010 at 2:09 pm
Congratulations! You’re 800 ahead of me!
hokgardner saysDecember 6, 2010 at 3:36 pm
I was just at my Target, and my choice in lights was limited to white, white, and white. I was half-surprised that they didn’t already have Valentine’s decorations out.
Mrs. Tuna saysDecember 6, 2010 at 3:47 pm
Oh my gosh, I’m only up to 30 posts, frankly I can only commit to one blog a week. That means I have 57.19 years to reach this milestone. Maybe if I get a few more pathetic followers it might bump me up to two a week. I’m just saying.
Angela@beggingtheanswer saysDecember 6, 2010 at 4:16 pm
Although you spent almost 4 years NOT curing cancer, you also spent it NOT engaging in petty theft, NOT coveting your neighbor’s whatever, and NOT kicking puppies (I hope). So consider it 4 years, 8 months and 11 days well spent.
kathleen saysDecember 6, 2010 at 5:43 pm
I forgot to congratulate you on your stupendous blogging achievment! I’m impressed! I really enjoy your writing and we have similar senses of humor. So maybe your not curing cancer; but you make people happy and make them think. I look forward to your posts everyday.Nobody has a perfect life. You just happen to write about yours. It means a lot to many people. Thanks!
Mr Farty saysDecember 6, 2010 at 7:16 pm
Woot! Or whatever the trendy young things say. Congratulations and keep them coming.
Purple lights? Oy.
Kate saysDecember 6, 2010 at 8:42 pm
Congratulations, young lady. Also, just think: It could have been worse. It could have been Post #3,011 and Target could have been out of all the crap in the bargain bins. And as everyone knows, 11 is one hell of a skeevy number and bargain-bin stuff is really our sole reason for living the end.
Bush Babe saysDecember 6, 2010 at 10:37 pm
Ye GODS woman… I am up to 724 posts. Which made me wonder exactly HOW much time I have spent blogging… which is NEVER a good thing to dwell on. Lucky we meet such amazing people doing it, eh?
Meg at the Members Lounge saysDecember 6, 2010 at 10:55 pm
The council loves BOSSY and her purple lights!
rory saysDecember 7, 2010 at 12:17 am
I fucking love you.

If it weren’t for Bossy there wouldn’t be Twisted Susan.
Thanks and congratulations!

Retailers are taking all the fun out of day after Christmas shopping because they start the clearance sales on December 18th and the Valentine’s Day stuff is already up.
Congrats on 3,005!
BossysMom saysDecember 7, 2010 at 11:11 am
Late, but, good work Bossy….and I mean work…I’ve watched you slave at 4:30 in the morning…almost impossible to be funny at that time….
And like the young uns don’t say (Mr Farty)…
“keep on keepin’ on”
p.j. saysDecember 7, 2010 at 11:32 am
Mazel Tov, Bossy! You’ve considerably brightened my life, and for that I thank you.
Yeah, the Christmas lights were fully stocked when I went to Target in mid-September to buy some replacement bulbs and fuses for our “Sukkah lights.” I think they had Chanukah plates and other such so-not-necessaries on the shelves then as well.
Congrats, and as your Mom said, “keep on keeping on.”
MemeGRL saysDecember 7, 2010 at 1:49 pm
yup, Target Man lied. We needed a Halloween update this year and right there with the tombstones were reindeer lanterns and strings of plain lights. Which was good, so I could put battery LEDs in our pumpkins. And hey, I’ll bet that’s why they are out of purple: they started selling them before Halloween. And purple is now the official accent color of that holiday. Phooey.
Reeb saysDecember 10, 2010 at 4:40 pm
I found an extensive aisle-worth of cheesy dog costumes — my poor dogs — at Target for about $1 each a few days after Halloween, and sent a friend there the next day so she too could torture her dog. She fumbled around a while, called me, I described exactly where the costumes were, but no: everything had sprouted christmas stuff overnight.
And it didn’t seem to me that Target was all that well stocked in light options even two days after Halloween.
foolery saysDecember 14, 2010 at 2:44 pm
Wait — when did you stop kicking puppies?
Congratulations on reaching and surpassing a milestone I can’t even fathom. You must have started blogging at age 9.
