Buttons

And now, for something completely different...

Everyone is used to seeing me with a button attached to my shirt -- usually, although not quite always, Nancybuttons. People frequently ask how many I have, and I make a half-assed guess.

Well, today was the ritual Tilling of the Buttons. The Inbox was finally empty, so it was time to take the ones in the Outbox and move them back again. So while I was at it, I indulged my inner vampire, and counted them. While I was at it, I counted the ones that are hanging on The Felt Wall of Buttons, rather than being in active rotation.

Final totals: 474 in active rotation, plus 71 on the wall (some of which really ought to be in rotation), making a total of 545 buttons. Okay, that's a few more than I thought -- a full rotation is actually significantly more than a year at this point. A preposterous number, perhaps, but it does mean that I don't get easily bored...
