100th EPISODE: READY FOR SYNDICATION

In the history of a TV show, 100 episodes is considered a major milestone, as it marks the point at which that program is usually ready for syndication.

This is my 100th post, and I'm also ready to be paid gobs of money for my reruns, so if you know of anyone who's buying, let me know. By reading the My Urban Kvetch Oldies-But-Goodies, they'll find out what you already know, all the things I've done and talked about over lo, these many months:

In the early days, I provided moment-by-moment Oscars commentary. I struggled with my toilet. I attended a 50/50 party where there are supposed to be many eligible guys. I wrote the definitive Celeste in the City essay.

My alter ego, Carb Girl, bought breakfast cereal and mourned the closing of a local bagelry.

I contemplated the Name of God, Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) and Yom Ha'atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day).

I reminisced about an old ex-something. I decided the blogosphere needed a safe space for people to "deal" with online dating trauma, and founded JDaters Anonymous.

I spoofed Bridget Jones and her diary; I tried to stop the magazines from taking over my apartment; I reacted surprisingly well to the end of Friends.

I appealed to Kate Lee from ICM to make me famous. I mourned the passing of Angel. I sang the praises of Sixteen Candles.

And of course, I became Madonna and got pooped on.

It's been a real journey. And I did it all with you by my side, gentle readers. It was a small audience that grew, from anonymous posters into real friends. Over a thousand visits since the webcounter was installed last week.

Happy 100th Postday to My Urban Kvetch. Here's to the next 100! I hope you'll all be there with me.

Love,
Esther

So, when is the movie coming out?

Or the musical: Kvetch! I'm proud to say I've been reading since the very first post.

There should be a movie--and if there's any justice in Hollywood (which may or may not be true), it will definitely be a musical (maybe my brother'd be willing to score, and I could work with him on lyrics, too). But first I need to be discovered by someone who can get that done. Then I'll write the screenplay (not that I know how to do that, but whatever...) and cast myself as, um, myself. I am the only one who can capture the simmering complexity that is me. Casting now open for the role of romantic lead, in real life and onscreen. Please send headshots and a five-paragraph essay, clearly stating your qualifications, to me at myurbankvetch@hotmail.com.

Maybe your brother could arrange for a VH1 blogumentary: Behind the Kvetching.

There's gotta be a book in here somewhere!
Congrats on hitting 100--and batting 1000 while doing it.

Thank you, thank you all. I literally could not have gotten this far without feeling your support across the miles through the magic of the Internet! Keep on reading, kids. And don't forget to leave your feedback. It's as important as the posts. (Although if the blog becomes a movie, I may have to concentrate on the posts...)
Cheers, all!
