Being a life-long hater of metrics in general, and in business specifically, I must confess to enjoying watching my own stats climb. I'm at an all-time high in the eco-system tonight. I must have looked at the "Flippery Fish" designation ten times before I realized that I'd never been there before. Shucks, I wasn't a Slimey Mollusc for very long.
Thanks to all for links in, and for giving me such wonderful opinions to link out!
UPDATE: Wowzers! I went to bed a few hours ago, and when I awoke, I'd jumped right up to "Crawly Amphibian" without even trying! Boy, if Darwin ever got hold of this...
