On the left hand side of jacketflap.com, I noticed that there is a menu titled 'Most Commented Posts' In the past 7 days. The blog entry with the fewest comments is 36 and the blog post with the most comments is 84.

I was thinking I could have a blog entry with at least 36 comments. That is, as long as I wished really hard for my comment dream to come true.

So here I go. Just like the pig farmer sang, Dont stop believin. Hold on to the feelin, streetlight people.

Ok, I've been posted for one minute so far and no comments. Must be patient.

Ian Sands said...

Hmm, two minutes, no commnets. this is going to be harder than i thought.

Ian Sands said...

Hey, i just realized, i have two comments. ok they are both min but still... only 34 more to go.

Ian Sands said...

Actually that was the third comment. And this is 4. wow, i might make it after all.

Ian Sands said...

Well things have slowed down a bit. i't been three minutes and i'm still the only one to have commented. But i have faith.

Ian Sands said...

Crude, I just realized i spelled comment (commnets) wrong in comment number two. there seems no way to fix that other than deleting it and starting over. crude, i'm keeping it. typos and all.

Ian Sands said...

Does anyone else waht to get in on this?

Ian Sands said...

i'm hungry. no, no time to eat. must stay vigilant.

Ian Sands said...

I had a dog named Bingo once. She was a good dog. i miss Bingo.

Ian Sands said...

Does that goalie gear make my butt look big?

Ian Sands said...

The turtle food i bought for my turtles is called, Reptomin. isn't that crazy?

Reptomin, please eat responsibly.

Ian Sands said...

Why is the "S" my last name not in caps?

Ian Sands said...

What do you think Dixie's Midnight Runners are doing right now?

And now?

And how about now?

Ian Sands said...

There's nothing to eat in this house!

Oh wait, i'm the big person.

Ian Sands said...

Why do they call them marshmellows? I get the mellow part but what's marsh got to do with it?

Ian Sands said...

when I was your age we didn't have blogs to comment to.

and we walked to school, uphill, snow, yada, yada..

Ian Sands said...

If i could figure out how to make printer ink cheap, i could be rich.

Ian Sands said...

Why do they call them teacher work days?

What the heck do they think i'm doing the other days i go to school??

Ian Sands said...

Is there any difference between stuff and things?

Anonymous said...

Hey,

no, it's still me. i just decided to comment anoymously.

Ian Sands said...

I wonder if i can just click 'publish your comment' without typing anything. let's find out.

Ian Sands said...

Nope, it's a required field.

Ian Sands said...

.

Ian Sands said...

But i can post very little. look above. one dot.

Ian Sands said...

This is comment nubmer 25. That's a quarter. Quarter is a funny word. so is nickel. Dime is not so funny.

Ian Sands said...

I don't think there has been any new songs written since the 80's. There are new songs but it isn't really new.

By 1989 every song that would ever be written was written.

Ian Sands said...

Did they ever make a macrochip?

Maybe they should make them now and then we could buy really big, bulky computers. We can say, super size it.

It will be all the rage to take up space.

Ian Sands said...

What if Al Gore got eaten by a polar bear? Would that just be to odd?

Ian Sands said...

How come it doesn't make any diffenence the shape a pretzel is?

We say pretzel shaped but we don't hold anyone accountable. They make them straight and round and all sorts of non pretzel shaped.

It's an outrage.

Ian Sands said...

This might have been easier if i had just asked my three friends to comment 10 times each.

Ian Sands said...

The lady who edits my stories always makes me take out the word "just". i like just. i use it a lot.

i bet she wishes she had a pretzel for every time she made me take out hte word just.

Ian Sands said...

I'm left handed.

Ian Sands said...

Where the people who named the East River just really lazy?

Ian Sands said...

I get the side walk and the street but what is the point of a curb? Is that suppose to stop the cars from running us over?

Ian Sands said...

I know all the lyrics to the greatest rock and roll song ever written.

Ian Sands said...

I'm thinking tacos.

Ian Sands said...

This is the post that will put me over the top. this is the post where i achive my life long dream of making the Most Commented Posts list.

I want to thank all the small people.

Ian Sands said...

Well maybe just a few more. to make sure I'm secure.

Ian Sands said...

There is still time if you want to get in on this. please, feel free to comment.

Ian Sands said...

and they said i was crazy!

Ian Sands said...

cheap, shamless plug:

ian is great,
give him chocolate cake,

http://www.ponywombat.com

Ian Sands said...

count them up j-flap!

C.R. Evers said...

LOL!

You've lost your mind, haven't you? But that's OK. I've enjoyed your bout of insanity. You crack me up.

C.R. Evers said...

ok, you asked, here's why it's called a Marshmallow: (I was too curious, I had to look it up.) :0P
Marshmallow candy dates back to ancient Egypt where it was a honey-based
candy flavored and thickened with the sap of the root of the
Marsh-Mallow plant (althea officinalis). Marsh-Mallow grows in salt
marshes and on banks near large bodies of water. It is common in the
eastern United States.

Until the mid 1800's, marshmallow candy was made using the sap of the
Marsh-Mallow plant. Gelatin replaces the sap in the modern recipes.

C.R. Evers said...

Yes. There is a difference between stuff and things.

C.R. Evers said...

whoever said you were crazy . . . .

has a point. :0P

C.R. Evers said...

why chocolate cake? I thought angel food was the "thang" (w/ choc fudge on top.)

C.R. Evers said...

what if a polar bear ate Al Gore and then big foot ate the polar bear. That would be, like, double weird.

C.R. Evers said...

Power to the people of The Preservation of Pretzel shapes!!!!!
Keep on Keepin' on!

Ian Sands said...

Why does jacketflap only have me listed at 4 comments??

what's up with that??

dissappointed in apex

Ian Sands said...

ok, now it has me listed as 29.

29 and climbing!

come on baby, you can do it!!

Ian Sands said...

Chocolate cake: it was an old Bill Cosby stand up.

The kids would wake him up early on saturday moring and want breakfast and he would get them cake and the kids would sing, dad is great, gives us the chocolate cake...

mom wasn't as happy.

Ian Sands said...

Day two of the comment dream campaign. For some reason flapjacket has my 50 something comments listed at 32. 4 short of the 36 needed to be added to the list.

I'm hoping by adding a few, extra and pointless entires that Flap will catch on.

Keep the dream alive!

Ian Sands said...

Here is one of the extra entries

Ian Sands said...

and here, a pointless

Ian Sands said...

Checking the numbers...

i'm at 35. 35 out of 36. Are they treasing me?

Well now it get worse. i need 37 comments to make the ilst. The dream is always one comment out of reach.

grrrrrrr

Ian Sands said...

It's sort of like a rejection letter. We really like your stuff but it's just not what we are looking for. it's almost what we are looking for. but it's not.

You are number 35. we were looking for someone who wrote more like 36 or 36. Best luck with another editor...

Ian Sands said...

36 or 36? that's funny. i meant 36 or 37. I'm even one number in my effort to be one number off.

so ian of me

C.R. Evers said...

I admire your perseverance! :0)

C.R. Evers said...

You are so close to going beyond 64. (if only flapjacket or jacket flap? can keep up)

C.R. Evers said...

what they hay! I can do 4 more posts for you

C.R. Evers said...

I'm not going to tell you the difference between "stuff" and "things".

It's a philisophical journey that you must undertake on your own in order to understand.

C.R. Evers said...

Journey on sir Ian. Journey On.

May the difference between "stuff" and "things" be revealed to you in it's fullness and grant you enlightenment.

C.R. Evers said...

This is it! This is 64! This is the biggest number. RIght?

C.R. Evers said...

OK, fine. Just one more to put you over the top.

C.R. Evers said...

*\o/* Yea!

You have shown the people of cyber-land that you can set your goals, aim high and go for it! :0D

C.R. Evers said...

oops. I just reread your post. The most is 80something.

That's ok. You're on your way.

Sherry Rogers said...

Oh my word!

Sherry Rogers said...

This is so funny!

Sherry Rogers said...

You crack me up!

Sherry Rogers said...

Okay there you go!

Sherry Rogers said...

I hope you get to your goal!

C.R. Evers said...

at least my error gained you a few extra replies

Sherry Rogers said...

Good Luck Ian I am out of here! That was fuN!

Kathleen Rietz said...

-OO-

>BLANK STARE<

C.R. Evers said...

well, the kids are being quite. I might as well keep posting

C.R. Evers said...

Hey! Sherry Rogers is pretty cool! You'll be at 80something in no time now!

C.R. Evers said...

How did you figure out that pancakes taste better with banana mixed in?

Did you do that on purpose, or did a banana fall in by accident?

Kathleen Rietz said...

I told you before, Chicago pizza is better than New York pizza. You guys fold yours like a paper airplane to eat it. It needs to be THICKER than that! Get it right.

C.R. Evers said...

the word dollar isn't funny either.

C.R. Evers said...

I have to mostly agree with most songs were written by 1989. But I think there is an exception. Have you really listened to the words to "Loser" by Beck?

The lyrics are pretty wacky. I don't remember anything like that before 1989.

"in the time of chimpanzee's I was a monkey
butane in my veins . . . . ( I can't understand the next part/something about a junky)
with the plastic eyeballs spray paint the vegetables. dog food stalls with the beef cake pantyhose."

or maybe I'm just totally misunderstanding what they're saying. :0P

C.R. Evers said...

you

C.R. Evers said...

are

C.R. Evers said...

almost

C.R. Evers said...

there

C.R. Evers said...

just a couple more

C.R. Evers said...

now I can say *\o/* yea!

C.R. Evers said...

now yo're way past your goal!

Ian Sands said...

Wow! i made it! I'm number three on the list.

Besides the day my children were born, and the day they printed my name in the phone book, and the day I defeated Apollo Creed, this is the best day of my life!

I would like to thank all the little people, the streetlight people, the village people, and the confused people who don't realize that pizza is only pizza when you don't need a knife and fork to eat it, for helping make my dream come true (wipes tear from eye).

Ian Sands said...
