About the author.

Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

8:15 pm
Post Meta :

Lots of people are doing vlogs nowadays, so I figured I’d better join in at some point.  You know, one of those “if everyone was jumping off a cliff” type of thing.  I can’t wait until more people win the lottery, because I’ll probably just join along, knowing me.

I’ve not done one before, so be gentle.  I’m also wondering, if I continue, will I make the vlog as part of my Sunday posting tradition, or will it be something separate?  Stay tuned and we’ll both find out.

Topics covered

  • First. VLOG. evar.
  • Got a new puppy (Luna)
  • Beat “One” on Guitar Hero III on Expert
  • Showing off my blog shirts
  • Taking Caitlin to her pet sitting interview
  • Using a blackberry to read blogs 
  • Complaining about camera battery life
And lo, the people did comment thus:

    You remind me of my friend Jerry and my friend Dave2 mixed into one person named after my brother. Far-eaky.

    Poppys last blog post..ohmygawwhataboringpostbutLOOKthere’sacategoryforthat!

  2. One more day til dial up is installed and I can enjoy posts like this….squeee!!! You got a new puppy??????? Pictures, please!!!

  3. Dave2 says:

    I was fully expecting your favorite T-shirt to have an LOLCat on it! Those were much cooler. 🙂

    Your future’s so bright, you’ve got to wear shades! And unread? How dare I be unread? 😉

    You keep your t-shirts on hangers?

    Poppy I take it Jerry is the good looking one since Daves is so smart and creative.

    Blondeblogger, I can honestly say I didn’t expect “squeeing” or “squeege” to be part of the responses to my first vlog, but I’ll take it. Dial-up must be HORRIBLE for you. I haven’t been on dial-up since… sheesh, 1997! Sounds like I should organize myself a little broadbandiversary.

    Dave2, I have a lot of cool shirts, but sadly, no LOLcat shirts. I do, however, have plans to make a NOLA shirt someday. But now I see you can buy them online, maybe I won’t bother.

    Hilly, I figured you’d faint when you heard you were on the same level as Scott Adams. And seriously – you’re one of the blogs I can’t easily read on the BB. I save you for the ‘puter.

    metalmom, I believe I had a full frontal nudity shot in there. Look again. Right around 0:38.

    Avi, yeah, I didn’t realize until now that it might look strange. I started doing that probably about 3 years ago – needed more room for shorts, so I took out ALL the t-shirts and hung them up. They really feel a lot better, all non-wrinkly and whatnot, and it’s a heckuva lot easier to find the t-shirt I want to wear. I hated having to re-tidy the tshirt drawers after searching.

    and here I thought your question-as-a-comment would be “you do laundry?”

  8. NYCWD says:

    You should totally get paid for plugging NewsGator.

    At least in t-shirts.

  9. martymankins says:

    nice beginning to the Vlog world. Looks like Adam already beat me to the “you keep your t-shirts on dry cleaner hangers?” comment. Of course, the next obvious question is: “Do you send your t-shirts out to be dry cleaned?”

    I will soon follow in the copycat mode of doing a Vlog. Working on my leaders and other various other items I want to add to Vlog #1

  10. Tug says:




    (I hang my t-shirts also)

    Tugs last blog post..Happy Dance!

  11. Poppy says:

    (When I have a closet to hang them in I also hang my t-shirts.)

    Poppys last blog post..I come from the land of protest, therefore I naturally have one.

  12. whall says:

    NYCWD, that would be great, actually. Then I could advertise for them. I would even do a vlog to that effect – wearing the shirt, using the app… If you’re listening, NewsGator, send a 2XL collared shirt.

    martymankins, no, I don’t dryclean my tshirts, but I do hang them. There was a time when I did the ‘clean and fold’ that this one place did per pound, and it made sense. Doesn’t any more. And my advice on your first vlog? make it bad like mine, so you set low expectations 🙂

    Tug, aren’t t-shirts lots better when hung?

    Poppy, I’m glad I’m not as alone as I thought I was.

  13. Tug says:

    I was going to say something, but it could appear vulgar, so I’ll just bite my tongue. 😉

    Tugs last blog post..Happy Dance!

  14. Okay…I have my high speed and I watched the video….woo hooo! Only it froze halfway and I thought that wouldn’t happen to me anymore. ugh!

  15. whall says:

    Tug, bite away! (keeps us both out of trouble) 🙂


  16. sourpuss says:

    Yay! That was a great first vlog! I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to more of them (if that’s what you decide).

    But you left me hanging… what was the outcome of the petsitting interview?

    I’m on the fence with rechargeables. With my Fuji cam I bought a Duracell charger with rechargeable batteries & it was awful. They took forever to charge & never lasted long. But when I got my Nikon, I got a charger and rechargeable Nikon batteries with it in the box and they’re amazing!

  17. Karl says:

    Yeah, the batteries thing blows. Still, that’s a pretty good picture you get with the cam. My webcam has a lag, so I look all slow and stuttery.

  18. Janna says:

    I sent some LOL Whalls for this one too, better late than never.
    Seven of them, believe it or not.
    Clearly I need counseling.
    Or maybe I just need a good night’s sleep.
    Gee, look, it’s 3:30 in the morning here in Michigan.

    Jannas last blog post..The stinky mystery is solved

  19. whall says:

    sourpuss thanx much – for the petsitting, the result is she watched the dog for the week, got paid and everyone’s very happy! and the rechargables deserve a Nobel prize.

    Karl, I’m sure if I used a webcam, I too would have issues. This is a samsung digital camera and then I just take the video and import it in.

    Janna your counseling homework is to make more of these EVERY SINGLE TIME I POST A DITL.

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
