Here are some numbers that I am proud of:

  • Number of Facebook friends: Almost 200. Since my self-worth is defined by the number of Facebook friends acquaintances I have accumulated, I'm quite happy to be close to the 200 mark. I know many of you socialite types have way more, but just let me bask in this for a moment.
  • Number of episodes of Arrested Development I've watched: 53. Yes, I've finally seen the whole series. The last episode was hilarious. I could probably watch this show from the beginning again and enjoy it just as much the second time.
  • Xbox Live Gamerscore: 8765. Since my self-worth is defined by my gamerscore, I can't wait to get to 10000. Then I can do awesome things, like...uh...tell everyone I've spent a lot of time playing video games. I've also played Rock Band on 50 separate days. Check it out at my Xbox's blog.
  • World of Warcraft character level: 47. That's the highest I've ever gotten! I'm still a ways off from my ultimate goal in life, though - having a level 70 character. Then I can finally feel like I have some self worth.
  • Number of unique visits to Phronk.com: 100 590. People have visited here over 100000 times! That's insane and awesome, because my self-worth is directly tied to my blog visits. But while daily visits have been going up, daily comments have been going down. I blame it on already having written about deep controversial stuff and not wanting to repeat myself, and instead writing boring self-indulgent lists of numbers that only a geek would be proud of.

That Xbox blog is creepy.

"I like, totally watched Phronk rub one out over a Showcase program, while I sat there, unused!"

nice stats. When did you start phronko?

Phronk said...

Haha, dude, softcore Showcase porn is so high school. There's actually porn on the internet now.

This site has been around in one form or another since 1995 or so...but I have no idea when the counter got put there. Probably 2 or 3 years ago.

I am at 796 facebook friends. I'm more popular than you. Or just less discerning...

Level 47? There's still a lot of work that needs doing in Azeroth. Hop to it.

I need a new hobby/interest. I have a level 70 and a new level 39 shaman.

Dates? Zero.

I think comments work like this: you get approximately the same number as you leave elsewhere.

Phronk said...

Sass: Holy crap. Well uh, I'm sure it's just that I'm more discerning. I'd take a bullet for any one of those 200 people on my friends list. Well maybe not all of them. Three or four of them, at least.

Jason: At least WoW is kinda male-centric. You could probably get dates just with the fact that you have a level 70. Chicks aren't so much impressed by that.

Tornwordo: True. Reciprocity is a pretty big part of this blog culture.
