It's PANABLOG week!

Happy PANABLOG week! Hard to believe it's finally here. Preparations are well underway. Animals are being slaughtered as we speak, and the bocce balls are getting a fresh coat of wax. It's going to be pantastic!

Many of you should have received an email reminder this morning. If you did not, it's probably because you're not invited and/or I don't have your email address. I know that doesn't make you feel any better, but it's the truth.

We are fitting a ton of activity into PANABLOG 08, so it will be very important that everyone adhere to the following itinerary. Failure to do so will result in your expulsion and the repossession of your official t-shirt. We don't want it to go down like that, so don't even test us.

2 PM -- Bocce and Mint Julep Meet-and-Greet begins (optional for the ladies)

A Decisive Victory!

The people have spoken, and it's official: panablog is THE #1 blog on the entire interweb!

We received votes from across the country, perhaps even the world (the technology does not yet exist to track information on the interweb; scientists, however, are working on it; as soon as they develop that technology, we'll have it here at Fanablog).

Of course, this only confirms what we have long known to be true: panablog is the single greatest thing in the history of the world EVER.

We shall not rest on our laurels, for laurels are not to be rested on but instead used for cultivating further awesomeness. That's the nature of laurels, and even Jay Panablog Himself can't change that.

Well, looks like we have another celebration ahead. Remember to be safe. As we say around here, There's no Fanablog without panablog, and there's no panablog without you.

We're #2! We're #2!

We did it! We made it to #2 on a Google search for "panablog"! Obviously, panablog is #1, as it should be. Nothing can stop us now!!! HAHAHAHA!

So many people to thank: The Panablogs, the panamaniacs, the panabuddies, Panama, Teddy Roosevelt, David Lee Roth ... I feel like I'm forgetting someone. Oh, who cares, WE'RE #2!

Well, I'll let you all get to celebrating, but please do be responsible. Remember, there's no Fanablog without panablog, and there's no panablog without you.

Happy panablog Day!!!

Today we pause to give thanks for all that panablog has done for our country and world. It's a glorious day, indeed.

As I prepare for a full day of festivities, I'm also thinking about those men and women who will never have a chance to see panablog. I think about the 101.58 billion people who died before panablog even existed. So sad.

I guess that's why we started Fanablog and set this mission: "To bring the awesomeness of panablog to every man, woman, and child with an internet connection, and to provide a printed handout to those without."

Of course, panablog Day isn't all seriousness; it's a rollicking good time. Here at Fanablog World Headquarters in Leawood we're already stewing the kidney beans and uncorking the 15-year single malt. Got the History Channel panablog marathon on. And the fireworks are being delivered at lunch. Just imagine the above photo, but with two 150-foot statues, one of Jay and one of Julia. Duplicates will reside on the river Seine in Paris.

Well, I won't waste any more of your precious panablog Day. Have a great time, and for the love of panablog, be safe.

Three Days and Counting ...

Looks like the Panablogs have retired to Old Senterhook, their weekend retreat in the Ozarks. Fanablog wishes them a restful break and eagerly awaits their return for the anniversary extravabonanza.

For prominent couples like the Panablogs, retreats have long provided crucial respite. Teddy and Edith Roosevelt spent many a renewing weekend at Pine Knot, for example. And look what that rest enabled Teddy to do. Yeah, build a freakin' canal that would forever change the world and set in motion a string of events that are just now being realized.

I think it's probably a good idea for all of us to take a little break before the festivities of July 20. Actually, this break is the perfect opportunity for you to curl up with your laptop and just reread every word of panablog. Maybe compile your top 30 favorite quotes from panablog. Or maybe just enjoy it at its most basic level, as the most greatest thing in the history of the world ever.

See you Sunday!

panablog has landed!

Kansas City just got a whole lot more awesome. Team panablog has landed. Check out the harrowing tale here.

All Quiet on the panablog Front

I've received quite a few concerned phone calls and emails in the past couple days. Seems that a lot of the Panabuddies are upset with the lack of posting.

Listen, I understand your frustration, but you have to realize that Jay and Julia are moving all of their stuff halfway across the country and preparing for a two-year trip to Panama. Let's not make it any more difficult for them. They'll post when they have the time.

Until that happens, I'd like to open Fanablog up to some discussion. What's been your favorite post so far? Favorite comment? What are you looking forward to reading about in the future?

Don't forget to register for PANABLOG 08 in Leawood, Kansas. While there is still plenty of space, I wouldn't wait much longer. As soon as a couple people get the ball going, these things tend to fill up pretty fast.

panablog growing by the day!

Did you guys see Jay's panablog post on food-drink combos today. IT WAS CLASSIC! If you haven't, definitely check it out.

Well, that's about it for now. I'm going to head on over to panablog for a couple hours and then probably head to bed.

OH, and before I forget, we're planning the first annual Panablog Association of North America Blog Log Organizational Groupfest (PANABLOG) for the weekend of August 8-10 in Leawood, Kansas. More info. to come!

Have you checked panablog today?!

Well you should. It's awesome!

Stop looking at my blog and go immediately to:

Welcome to Fanablog!

Welcome to Fanablog, the interweb's #1 panablog fan blog. I started this blog to support the Panablogs in anyway I possibly can.

In case you've been hiding in a cave for the past 19 days, panablog is the interweb's #1 Panama Peace Corps blog, written and hosted by Jay and Julia Panablog. They are so cool. Sort of a modern-day Theodore and Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt.

If you have any suggestions about how I can better serve panablog, please drop me a line. Team Fanablog is working hard on a number of initiatives, including a panablog conference, a panablog t-shirt, and full 24/7 panablog customer service. We're also developing the capabilities to host any overflow visitors to panablog. Or if panablog were to ever crash the Typepad server (which will likely occur when they appear on Oprah), Fanablog could serve as a panablog refugee camp, providing archived posts and reasonably priced merchandise to those in need.

So welcome and get ready for the two panagreatest years of your life!
