Roxiticus Desperate Housewives Super-Celebration: 25,000th Visitor, 475th Post, Plus a Truckload of Awards

Whew...Visitor #25,000 snuck right past me this afternoon! He or she came in via BlogExplosion to vote on my current Battle of the Blogs against Casual Slack (quality nonsense, served up fresh -- daily). Visitor #25,000 came from Paris, Ile-de-France and only stayed long enough to vote. Come back and comment, Visitor #25,000! Let us know whether you voted for Roxiticus Desperate Housewives! Since I lost that battle (9-6), I'm going to guess "NO."

Underworld Spy Roxy's Suspicion: My powers of deduction are telling me that the 25,000th visitor to Roxiticus Desperate Housewives was my current Battle of the Blogs competitor, Kittie of What's New Pussycat.

I'd like to take this opportunity to celebrate a couple of Roxiticus Desperate Milestones and to accept a truckload of awards!

First, a very special award from my good blogosphere buddy, Cindi, who has presented Roxiticus Desperate Housewives with Moomette's Best WAHM Site, an award for Super WAHM-owned websites. While Rex and I own a small investment bank with an office in New York City, we frequently work from home, and I almost always blog from home, so I'm happy to qualify and honored to accept this tremendous award. Thanks, Cindi! One of Cindi's blogs, Moomettesgram's Musings, is going to be watching over Roxiticus Desperate Housewives from my EntreCard widget on Saturday, July 19th, so be sure to drop it like its hot and click through to Moomette!

Next, I have borrowed LadyJava's awards lorry to transport all of the awards that LJ and Mariuca shared with me all the way from Malaysia to the Roxiticus Valley! On the truck, you'll see:

  • The Arte y Pico Award;
  • The Share the Love Award;
  • The You Cheer Me Up Award for bloggers who cheer their readers up by making them laugh or feel good in their own special way;
  • The Perfect Blend of Friendship Award; and
  • The Cool Cat (aaaahchooo!) Award, among others.

Last, but not least, I'd like to thank all of you for visiting and reading, and to let you know that this is Post #475 on Roxiticus Desperate Housewives, and we're showing no signs of stopping. For the next three weeks, we're leading up to our Third Blogiversary Celebration on Tuesday, August 5, 2008, possibly to be combined with Post #500 and the grand unveiling of a brand new WordPress MU Community by Roxy...

Raise a glass!
