Happy Birthday JT Irregulars!

Maybe not so serious after all...

One year ago today, the picture at left was posted, along with our first blog, on the JT Irregulars. The blog was entitled WELCOME.

Back then, our address was jtirregulars.blogspot.com. We weren’t quite sure who or what we were yet, but we were pretty sure that we weren’t going to be regulars at the old site again. So we created our own. The rest, as they say, is history, or infamy, or irony, or tripe, or something.

Happy First Birthday JT Irregulars! May we see many, many more! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to, commented on, read, cast aspersions on, or spread false rumors about, the site. “Please join the conversation” at anytime. We meet online to post and chatter about whatever is making our day or pissing us off. Who would have thought that it would grow to this? Congratulations to everybody!

I just have to do a recap of that freaky video from SER’s birthday blog:



Here’s a still as a memento:

In anticipation of our anniversary, I went back and read the first week of blogs.

Pretty interesting and fun to watch everyone find their way here (home) and the struggles we had learning a new system and what we would become.

I can't believe what we have become! It amazes me everyday when I look at our traffic. I also can't believe it has only been one year. I feel like I've known you all, as best friends, for a long, long time.

I think it took risk and courage for each of us to say we were better than the treatment we were getting elsewhere.

Mostly what I want to say is THANKS JTI!!! for the laughs when I needed them and the outlet to spew when I needed that too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JTI

Impressive...1-year and over 140,000 page loads!

Just think, when others find out how much fun we have at our parties, they will want to come to them also, and they should. You can bet your butt I have fun!!

Thanks Sheriff

Congratulatory calls, emails and telegrams have been pouring in all morning.
From President Obama: “Change has come to America – even Racine.”
From Governor Doyle: “Congratulations JTI! (Are we taxing them yet?)”
From Mayor Dickert: “The success of the JT Irregulars is essential to my ten year plan.”
From the Beckerphile: “Party on!”
From BO’B: “#^%$*@!!!”

A few more JT Birthday news items...

Hillary Clinton dodged sniper fire after landing at the Racine airport on her way to a JTI Birthday party.

Lidnsey Lohan proposed a toast and promptly ended up in rehab.

Michael Steel said JTI was, "Off the hook."

Sonia Sotomayor said we could "Use the perspective of Latina woman".

Rush Limbaugh called us part of the "elite liberal media".

We are too scared to open the telegram from Joe Biden.

Congratulations to all of my wonderful friends at the JT Irregulars. I predict an even better year to come, with more laughs, more tears, and more irregularity than ever. See you at the next get-together, dearies!
