Happily entering the third month

Happy birthday to… ME!

I've been a blogger for ninety days and 148 posts now. Just a baby yet.
The average per month is quite astonishing, I'd say: 49.3 posts…
I wouldn't have ever imagined it could be such an amazing experience!
Thinking now that I was so reluctant about creating a blog just reminds me once again of a rather strong characteristic of mine that won't ever disappear no matter how desperately I fight it: I do not embrace changes so easily…
Oh how I wish I'd be just a little bit more loosen‑up…!
All the new things I've been learning, all the new subjects that catch my attention everyday, all the marvellous blogger friends I've been making, all the chats we've had by e‑mail – some so deliciously light and amusing, others so rewardingly deep and serious –, all the different places of this now so small world of ours that I'm daily in touch with, as if I were visiting and being visited by each and every one of you, my dear blogger friends…
I hadn't the faintest idea… That's it.
I want to thank you all from the heart for all these incredible adventures I've been going through, especially to those I've been calling «The Happy Few Club» for some time now.
I can only hope our friendship will get stronger and stronger, and each and every one of us will get richer and richer everyday. You may understand this financially as well, it's okay with me!
I wish you all success and happiness. Lots and lots!

Carpe diem – noctemque…

xox from me to you on your blog birthday.

My, i wish I could burn the three DVD's I watched thsi week. I can, but would they play on your DVD player?

You would so get them. You would enjoy them. Do you have a They would play on a PC...just not sure of the PAL format -- is that what your DVD's are formatted for?

Well congratulations my friend.

I've been part of this ride for a while now and I'd like to say, thank you.

I'm glad to be here and to be able to par take in this part of your life.

Thank you Ric and again, congrats!?

Karla disse...

Muitos parabéns.
És ainda um bebé, mas muito produtivo!
Isto é uma experiência fantástica pelo que nos traz de novo, pelo que nos enriquece.

RIC disse...

Thank you very much, Will!
As to the DVD's, I don't think the formats are compatible... I even think the systems are different. Thank you anyway! :-)

RIC disse...

Hello Joel and thank you very much! It has been a pleasure for me as well having you as a member of «The Happy Few Club»! I'm enjoying every little bit of this wonderful adventure!
I do thank you again and wish you all the best! :-)

RIC disse...

Muito obrigado, querida Karla! Não há dúvida de que é uma experiência muito peculiar. É um novo mundo de descobertas - interiores e exteriores...
Bom fim-de-semana! :-)

Happy 3 months!

RIC disse...

Thanks a lot, Joshua!

André disse...

Parabéns e obrigado... Só posso dizer o melhor a respeito do teu blog e de ti. Muito, muito obrigado, pelo blog, pelo apoio, enfim por tudo. Ultimamente tenho andado um bocadinho lamechas, espero que isto não tenha saído muito pegajoso.

Hey, congrats on your 3-month blog anniversary. Oh my, time travels so fast. I remember the 2-month celebration very well.
I'm gonna have a glass of wine to you. Ok, to be honest, I already had one, but the next is to your blog :-)

Shadow disse...

Parabéns.
Espero que sejam 3 meses, de muitos mais.
Permite-me fazer um brinde, ao teu excelente e «sumarento» blog.
«Tchim-tchim»!

Bom Domingo.

Carla.

happy birthday!

(and you qualify for hobbitness, because if I calculated correctly, you are shorter than I am, and that's the first qualification!)

RIC disse...

Muito obrigado, André! Nada tens a agradecer! Se o que faço por prazer puder ser útil a alguém, de algum modo, o prazer é todo meu! E não notei nada de pegajoso...
Um abraço! :-)

RIC disse...

Hallo Rian! Vielen herzlichen Dank!Sehr lieb von dir, auf mich und meinen Blog zu trinken. Ich werde es selbst auch später tun. Vielleicht doch mehr als ein Glas...
Liebe Grüsse!

RIC disse...

Olá Carla! Muito obrigado! Acho que mais tarde também vou beber um copo. Portanto, à tua também!
Desejo-te um bom Domingo também!
:-)

RIC disse...

Thank you very much, Gumby!
If you're taller than 5.75, then you're definitely taller than me. But now I kmow the reason! :-)
Have a nice weekend!

Some songs just don't scan properly when you translate them. But Happy Birthday (or maybe Quarter Birthday?) nontheless.

I think it's surprising that blogging took so long to appear on the net. One of the most important things the net makes possible is for ordinary people seperated by geography to communicate, and understand each other - yet blogs have only proliferated in the last 5 years.

There's nothing else that lets you into the lives of an Australian pastor, a Spanish poet, an American anarchist, a Russian songwriter and even a Portugese bibliophile - all in an hour. And that's why blogging is rewarding, and a little bit addictive too.

RIC disse...

Multan dankon, Kapitano!

As to considering me as a Portuguese bibliophile, I do sincerely feel flattered... To be one nowadays requires that huge little difference I do not have... I'm a reader and a books lover (no offense meant to common lovers, of course...)
Enjoy your Sunday!

Gray disse...

Congratulations on your first three months, Ric!

I look forward to your three *year* anniversary!

RIC disse...

Thank you very much, Gray!
I guess I'll take the safe path with some Italian wisdom: «Chi va piano va sano»...
Enjoy your Sunday!

Bruce disse...

Ric,

The happiest (and I think that means for you, the most productive) of birthdays from a regular and enthusiastic reader.

Baci da Italia.

RIC disse...

Grazie mille, Bruce!
Quite touching and meaningful, these vows of yours! I'll do the best I can to keep up with the achieved level. It does mean a lot to me! I count on enthusiastic readers - and relevant writers - as yourself to follow the right path.
Baci da Lisbona per la bellissima Venezia!...
