Another Blogoversary?


Yes! She Who Seeks blog is ELEVEN years old today! Wow, that's a lotta years to have been pumping out stolen cartoons and memes, assorted cat videos and miscellaneous balloon juice, isn't it?

Putting together this post, I discovered that "eleven" is NOT a particularly exciting or famous number.  It's hard to build a theme post around it. This is the best I could come up with.

A super slow speed limit --


That kid named Eleven from Stranger Things --


The old British tradition of a mid-morning snack called "elevenses" --

No one ever says "behind the eleven ball" --


This is really stretching it, I know, but
7-11 and its famous slurpees
(at least this has a bonus unicorn, yay!) --


Hockey legend and Edmonton's favourite son Mark Messier,
who always wore number 11 on his jersey, whether playing for
the Edmonton Oilers, the Vancouver Canucks or the New York Rangers --


Yup, that's it. Pretty sad, eh?

If you can think of any more famous or exciting elevens, help me out in the comments, willya?

What about the 11 year-old girl that attacked an armed robber with a loaf of bread and a bottle of squash?

Congratulations on the blogiversary!

Didn't you see the amplifier scene in Spinal Tap? You "go to eleven" any number of times.....

There's also the expression "the eleventh hour", but it seems much less applicable, blog-wise.

Bob said...

Happy Elevenses!
Here's to Twelves and Thirteenses!

Frank said...

Don't know how you keep coming up with topics and great pics for your blog, let alone the enthusiasm to keep it going. I've fizzled out pretty much in the past few years. Wishing you many more years of entertaining your readers.

Moving with Mitchell said...

I think you did a pretty good job with 11. Happy versary!

Lady M said...

I am with the Infidel- Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel and his amplifier - it goes to eleven. A classic scene from a classic movie.

Marie Smith said...

Happy 11th. Well done!

Lady M said...

I forget to say Happy Blogversary. I am looking forward to 11 more years of your wicked sense of humor.

pam nash said...

In numerology, 11 is a master number. Happy Blogoversary!

Tasker Dunham said...

Legs eleven - BINGO!

jaz@octoberfarm said...

when i lived in toronto 30+ years ago there was a pizza commercial and the jingle was...367-eleven eleven. (367-1111) all these years later it's still stuck in my head!

DEZMOND said...

Yours is a year older than mine, but I think you've been with me from the very beginning! Time flies!

Kirk said...

The only famous 11 I can think of is--well, let's just say you can find it in the title of a Michael Moore movie.

At any rate, happy blogoversary

e said...

Eleven glorious years! Well done, you! Turn it up to 11!

bobbie said...

Happy Anniversary!!! Wish I had found you sooner ~ keep up the good works!

Adam said...

Congrats, some people don't even make 11 weeks.

Susan Kane said...

I think this is #9 for me. Good for you!

Ol'Buzzard said...

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me Eleven pipers piping

on a more somber note:

November 11 (11/11) German surrender WW-1

Congratulations on your 11th (or Maple Leaf) anniversary.

Happy 11th blogversary! I can't think of anything else that is eleven related and exciting, except maybe elevenses: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevenses

Joanne Noragon said...

I'd disremembered elevenses. I think you should mount a campaign to bring it back into fashion.
And my, thet Mark Messier could stretch his jaw, what?

Contrary Guy said...

Congratulations!

Lisa said...

Congratulations. I hope there are many more years to come.

Tundra Bunny said...

Oh, how quickly you forget Saskatchewan's Highway 11, where moose are moose and men are afraid....

And I KNOW you're old enough to remember APOLLO 11 since the first moon landing only happened 50 years ago.

Happy Blogiversary anyway!

baili said...

Happy anniversary to your wonderful blog dear Debra

always brings positivity and cheerfulness :)

blessings!

G.B. Miller said...

Congratulations on making to 11 years!

Alas, the only "11" I can come up with is the song "Eleven" from Schoolhouse Rocks.

mxtodis123 said...

Happy 11th.

Elsie Amata said...

Happy blogoversary! Eleven years is amazing. I made up a word you can use if you'd like: eleventy. As in, "I ate eleventy pieces of anniversary cake and felt super fat."

Elsie

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Wow 11... I think that's 87 in blog years!

Magaly Guerrero said...

11? You are totally ready to go to Hogwarts! Happiest Blogoversary to you (and to HRH's spirit, too).

The Captain said...

Happy bloggerversary x

Fundy Blue said...

Eleven years of posting, Debra! Way to go! Loved the "elevenses" image. Whenever I hear that word, I always hear Pippin in "The Fellowship of the Ring" movie saying, "What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper?" when Strider is leading them away from Bree. Have a great weekend!

RO said...

Wow! Happy Blogiversary! Congratulations for going strong for 11 years! Very cool memes too! Hugs, RO

Bill Lisleman said...

The movie Ocean's Eleven which came out in 2001. Eleven is one of the easier numbers to multiple. Congrats and Blog On

The 11 from 7-11 considers itself a pretty big deal. :D

I came by to find this!
I too want to join the conga-line of congratulations!
May there be 11 more than then some.

Liz Hinds said...

Legs eleven - a bingo term. But apart from that, you're right, it's hard to come up with anything related.

Liz Hinds said...

I just checked: in 5 days my blog will be 14 years old!

Rommy said...

Don't underestimate the power of Eleven from Stranger Things. She will mess people up! :D

Magic Love Crow said...
