That’s right – it’s my blogiversary….my SECOND blogiversary!!

Before I go any further I want to say THANK YOU to each and every person who has ever passed through here…even the spammers!   I am always mildly surprised to look at my stats…“Well look at that – there are people who come here…and then come back for more!”  🙂  It is a highlight of my day to see new people wander in and look around, and especially to “talk” with friends I’ve made in this virtual world.

Two years, and I feel like I have only scratched the surface of things to talk about…I have yet to finish my tour through the Olympian Gods (I’ve been kind of dabbling with Poseidon lately…I wonder if there’s a water hazard coming up on Pilgrimage?)  I was looking over the Roman Virtues yesterday and realized there’s plenty more of those to cover.  Of course, once I solve my download issues, I will finally tackle the Sophocles-Armitage connection vis-à-vis The Crucible.  Things have definitely slowed down here lately as I’ve been trying to adjust to my new career situation.  With massive budget cuts looming, I imagine there will be angst on that front for some time.  All the more reason to spend more time here….budget cuts I can’t do much about…Richard Armitage and the Classical Tradition?  I’m all over that!

So, how to mark the 2nd Blogiversary?  I was thinking about it yesterday, and of course I clicked right over to the “Anniversary Gifts by Year” website to investigate.  Anniversary two is traditionally marked by gifts of the COTTON variety.  Hmmm…what sort of cotton mementos could I come up with?

An appropriately blog themed T-shirt?

Not a bad choice….could do it in a variety of fashion colors…

What else?  Linens maybe?

Hmmm -  tempting... Source

I thought about it…for about a minute.   I already have a king sized pillow that my husband refers to as my “boyfriend” – he’s a pretty good sport, but I’m guessing this might be slightly OTT even for him.

However…with some modification…

Perfect! (Is there anything you can't customize on the internet?)

I can see it now…my own line of Ancient Armitage cotton apparel and linens!
