HNT 15 - and 20,000 hits

I can’t believe it myself, but yesterday afternoon What Doesn’t Kill You received its 20,000th hit – drum roll for Kimberley, who unfortunately didn’t leave a return address with her comment, but who would otherwise have got something rather special. Kimberley, if you read this let me have your email address and/or blog URL so that I can pay you the appropriate homage and/or send you a little something.

I remember saying after hit no. 10,000 that I never set out with the intention of gathering any kind of readership, and I can only thank everyone again for stopping by so often. I try to write from the heart, and hopefully I succeed in this respect. That said, I can only aspire to write as beautifully as some of my fellow bloggers regularly do. And, thank god, for every nut-job out there, there are also dozens of genuine people who offer a little glimpse of their lives, and their thoughts, for the rest of us. Oh, and I think we should have one big party at Chez WDKY when the needle hits 50,000 – what do you say?

In all the excitement, I nearly forgot that the whole purpose of this post was to celebrate HNT yet again. So, I give you my hand, and the interior of my Alfa… a beast of a sports car, with – sadly – very little interior room for any real exposure to be undertaken. But you should hear the roar of that engine…

Happy HNT

Oh, and one more for KOW...

It would be totally un-American of me if I didn't say "Hey, your steering wheel is on the wrong side!!"

Alfa Romeo huh? Verrrry good taste in horse power my dear. I dearly love the purr of a V-8 or V-12. It is almost as good as sex...ok, not really. But damned close!

Nice Hand...I think every woman enjoys the sexiness of smooth and well tanned hands.

*sigh*

Happy HNT T!

blondage said...

Congrats on hitting 20k!

An Alfa? Oh my. Sexy car. *fanning self*

Happy HNT!!!!

Darkneuro said...

20K! woohoo! and Happy HNT...
and I have alfa envy. SIGH.

Caterpillar said...

Your wrist looks thick and strong, I like that! My first thought was how I could reach back and grab a hold during... :)

FireCracker said...

20k is amazing - but it wouldn't be the same without the nut-jobs! ;)

Nice pic - although, having the steering wheel on the other side did throw me off for a second. I guess I tend to forget you're on the other side of the pond.

trouble said...

Gratz, you, and happy HNTing. :)

So, is there room for hanky panky in the alfa?

networkchic said...

Oh drive fast my dear...I'm waiting.

unforgiving bitch said...

very nice...will you let me drive your car?

Lee Ann said...

That is cool, now it is over 20,000!
Love that watch...you look like you are driving on the wrong side! (I know, I know...London!) :)
Awesome!
Happy HNT!

ladylongfellow said...

Congrats! A party at 50k at your place sounds fab! I'll need a little notice in order to get a ticket....and proper reservations. You picking me up Heathrow? lol

I've spent a little while looking through your 'privates' (err..blog), hope you don't mind.
great site.

wdky said...

Hi Mez... thanks so much, I see you had a good look around :-)

I popped over to yours too, and will devote some time to it properly later - you write beautifully, though.

mez said...

lol, oh god. The stats thing sort of ends up making one feel like a child who has been looking where she shouldn't.
..and thanks.

wdky said...

Don't be daft - I just wish I could return the favour :-)

Serendipity said...

Nice HNT!

I'll look forward to the party!

wdky said...

You'll be more welcome, Serendipity, but no dog-ends on the carpet (you'll have to stand in the garden with me). And you weren't paying attention, I was referring you to no. 10!

Wenchy said...

You have most gorgous hands.

lime said...

New York Moments said...

It's dangerous to take pictures while driving!

Shanda said...

Wow.....that car is sweet....I need to go wipe up the drool (at least I think thats drool ;->)

kimberly said...

wdky said...

Ah, Kimberly... its you then. I'm absolutely delighted, and will be honouring you an an appropriate fashion shortly!!

tmz_99 said...

Nice alfa.. I had the pleasure of renitng a 147 for a week a couple of weeks ago and was rather impressed with it's interior and general 'zippyness'.. I would gather that yours excells in every department. :) Still needs forced induction however ;)

NML said...

I agree with NYM! But congrats on the 20k mark!

wdky said...

Don't agree with NYM, you know it only encourages her...
