High-fives are the new awesome

so. briggie.blogspot came to san francisco to visit this weekend. for those of you that know, briggie keeps pretty careful tabs on the number of visitors that he has on his site, and sometimes he even publicly brags about it by creating green graphs and posting them for the world to see exactly how popular he is.

sooooo popular.

which is why when he checked his stats while sitting on our couch this evening, he was a little dissapointed in today's numbers. we tried to make him feel better by telling him that if his numbers were low, then ours would probably be too.

but then we checked, and our blog totally out-visited briggie.blogspot today!

and you know what THAT means.

triumphant high-fives. right in brigham's face. take that!

wait. that was kind of a weak high-five. let's stand up and get serious about this.

ready? high-five ...HARD!

that was okay. let's high-five ... HIGH!

sometimes you high-five so much that you can't even stand up straight!

well. whatever. just as long as we rub it in, that beating briggie.blogspot in traffic is the new awesome!

thanks for your loyalty, visitors. keep it up. brigham is here all weekend and we need good reasons to high-five IN HIS FACE

    I respectfully dissent.

    whatever brig. the real secret is that i check our blog about 75 times a day, betsy checks it about 50 ... so that means we only have about 5 real visitors a day. and 2 of those are our moms.

    wait, you can check how many visits you get? how do i do this? i'm willing to risk the ensuing depression.

    you have to go to sitemeter and install it on your blog. then you can check your traffic and make pretty graphs and tell your friends

    I'm going to put the new awesome on the same "check compulsively every five minutes" routine as my gmail all weekend. just for you guys and your high fives.

    this sitemeter stuff is great. especially since i have my own (well, it's a joint effort) blog as my home page. so every time i open my browser (like 800 times an hour when i'm supposed to be studying) it'll seem like people are reading.

    good hustle girls. just please don't ever publish your own bar graph...

    That was some weak sauce high-fivin'.

    I'd score Brigs eye rolls and exsasperation higher than your poor show of celebration.

    it turns out to be rather difficult to capture the perfect high-five on camera. i would put it right up there with attempting to get photos of bigfoot.

    not to say that the perfect high five doesnt exist. Because it does. Especially when you have a reason to celebrate like this one.

    As a staunch supporter and historian of High Fives Throughout History, I say, "Ladies, well done. I see real potential here."

    Next time I sub for a elementary school computer class I'll have all my students take a gander at your blog to further boost your ratings.

    One thing you should know about the "high" five, is that it really merits no attention as long as the toes are on the ground. A real good five (of the "high" variety) needs the following elements:

    -extension (which you have)
    -audio punch
    -fleshy thud

    and when you have hi-fived your best you don't need to say a thing because you will feel it in all parts of you, but exspecially in the hand.

    i disagree with both the elevation and the follow-through parts. i don't think those are necessary. especially since there's as many kinds of high fives as there are snowflakes.

  • At 4:17 PM, Anonymous Manf said…

    well there are different varieties of follow through depending on the typ of high five (up and away for "the mathnet", over and under for "top gun") there is only one quality high-five that I am aware of that has NO follow-through and that is because it involves trying to hold her hand afterward (the desperate shloop) but that ain't no quality high-five.

    And if you don't have elevation, you just don't mean it.
