I'm not fond of round numbers for their for their roundness alone, just for having all those zeros. Personally I think a numbering system based on 12 instead of 10 makes much more sense. Then the big round numbers would be 144 then 1,728 then 20,736 and so on. But humans didn't evolve to have twelve fingers, so it didn't happen.
Anyway I wanted to mark this evolutionarlly arbitrary milestone of almost reaching one thousand diaries over the last 73 months, at number 999 as my chosen arbitrary milestone. I am writing more often than I used to when I worked my factory job, with 520 of those diaries coming over the last two years.
