That’s a pretty big number, Modern Philosophers, and I just wanted to say Thank You to the best blog readers out there.
Of course, once I noticed that the counter had surpassed half a million, all hell broke loose at The House on the Hill. The Otherworldly Beings who are such a major part of this blog’s content, showed up to throw me a little party.
My Witch friends, Waltzing Matilda, Volcanica Ivy, and Ti-Diana have conjured up a cauldron of Half A Millionaire Ale in the dining room.
Seamus the Leprechaun is reciting raunchy limericks about the blog’s success and my personal life.
The Werewolf A Cappella group has set up shop out on the front porch, and they have been serenading the other guests through the front windows.
Gary the Gargoyle is taking folks for flights down by the Penobscot River, with the Flying Monkeys accompanying him for added excitement.
The Devil brought his famous Hell Fire Wings, and promised to not make deals for any souls over the next 24 hours.
Mayor McCheese has provided enough burgers, fries, and shakes to feed an army.
Zeus is tossing lightning bolts at Zombies that my Maine Zombie Hunter friends have brought by just for Zeus’ display of accuracy.
My friends from the Maine Zombie Census Bureau presented me with a jewel encrusted stiletto to commemorate the special occasion.

I’m sure there is so much more going on here, but it’s just too much for me to process. I feel incredibly lucky to have such wonderful friends and faithful readers. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I hit this magic number on National Friendship Day, and I am so grateful for all the new friends I’ve made as a result of starting this silly blog.
I look forward to writing more posts, and I hope you will continue to read them and share them with your friends!
Here’s to the next half million!
