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.



Put yo hains in da a-yair.

wayne's 3-minute ditl day in the life

Episode #7 contains these tidbits:

  • Surprise Birthday party (intro)
  • Surprise Birthday party (intermission)
  • Surprise Birthday party (reprise): aka “Margarita in a bag”
  • One of my favorite shirts (STFU please)
  • Camoflauged bus stop laptop stand
  • Wayne gives RESPECT
  • Binary Odometer
  • Truck to Heaven
  • Hey, must be da munnay!
  • What’s a meteor?!?!?

And maybe BEST OF ALL – bonus footage!  This archive footage features TWO (count’em 2!) Wayne Hall’s singing “Nail Man” (sung to the tune of “Soul Man”).  They are the nearest incarnation of Jake (Wayne) and Elwood (Wayne) Blues (Hall) this side of Chicago. 

All in 3 minutes or less! (excluding introductions, credits and bonus footage).

Note: background music supplied unknowingly by the fantastic duo of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, key stalwarts that make up Steely Dan, off their latest album Everything Must Go. The track I used portions of is Lunch With Gina. Pick this music up if you can – it is amazingly good.

And lo, the people did comment thus:


  1. I can’t tell you enough how much I love these. I even plugged you on Twitter so my friends can enjoy it.

    “Wanna catch a meteor?” Hahahahaha! And I’m glad you said you were drinking Sprite because I totally caught that burp you tried to supress.

    And how do you know about OPI???? Nice moves, though. 😉

  2. Avitable says:

    I liked the Wayne who was on keyboards. The third Wayne.

    Avitables last blog post..Free balling should be an Olympic sport

  3. Loved this vlog! Thanks, BlondeBlogger for reposting the link because I missed it earlier. I think I was too busy staring at the hot guy at the checkout counter in Publix!

    Geeky Tai-Tais last blog post..Clearly I Won’t Be Invited…

  4. Hahahaha!!! I saw that, GTT! Totally cracked me up. You should’ve snuck a picture of him to share. 😉

  5. martymankins says:

    I’m glad you mentioned the song was called “Nail Man” I thought it sounded more like “Mail Man”

    I’ve caught rain drops on video before. It’s not easy. You have to position the camera just right.

    And your t-shirt’s acronym is not family friendly enough for this blog.

  6. Dave2 says:

    Better margarita in a bag than margarita in the shorts!

    Dave2s last blog post..Fitch

  7. Tug says:

    Your son cracks me up – Sure, I want to catch one, but um…what is it?

    Tugs last blog post..Um, yeah, don’t know what kind

  8. Bucky says:

    “Hello, do you have Margarita in a bag?”

    “Yes sir, we do.”

    “Well you had better let her out before….

    /that was worse than I could have ever imagined.

  9. Miss Britt says:

    Now I have that song in my head. And possibly a dance.

    I thought you took the bus to work? You DRIVE to daycare and then take the bus to work??

    And also – what kind of camera do you use (have I asked this before)?

    Miss Britts last blog post..Scared

  12. Poppy says:

    I clapped when I saw the palindrome odometer. 😀


    Nice dancing.

    My feet hurt, but that has nothing to do with you.

    Poppys last blog post..off to get my babies

  13. Janna says:

    Just sent your LOL Whalls.
    Sorry I didn’t send them sooner; I’d been house-sitting for the past few days at my mom’s house, waiting for werewolves to break in and eat me.

    Jannas last blog post..Hi, honey, I’m HOME!!!

  14. whall says:

    BlondeBlogger, I really appreciate the plug. (and the idea you sent me via email – it’s in the works!)

    Avi, (cue movie trailer theme music) In a world dominated by black-tie wearing Blues singers with coordinated dance moves, one Wayne stands apart from the others. He is… the Third Wayne.

    Geeky Tai-Tai, thanx for the feedback! I don’t know what Publix is tho. And why was the guy hot? Is Publix not air conditioned?

    martymankins, If you watch carefully, you can even see me (on the left if you didn’t know) pointing at my nails.

    Dave2, thank you for not capitalizing Margarita. Or capitalizing *on* Margarita.

    Tug I know! he’s so funny and optimistic that way

    Bucky, ah, reminds me of Prince Albert in a can.

    Miss Britt, no daycare. He’s 6, so 1st grade starts soon. My wife stays home w/the kids if that helps answer further. And I use the Samsung S730 – cheapo $99 digital camera, and that was oh prolly 9 mo ago.

    Dragon, why THANK YOU! I am proud and honored to be considered your friend. and, V org jr jbhyq or tbbq sevraqf va “erny yvsr”.

    metalmom, we’re here to provide a service. Anything I do or say can be held against me. Void where prohibited. You are now free to move about the blog.

    Poppy, was it a yippeeee! clap or a Rudy-style slow-clap or a golf clap?

Want to comment?

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.
