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.

wayne's 3-minute ditl day in the life

Episode #8 contains these tidbits:

  • Jaden’s first day of school
  • Will they ever learn Kern?
  • It takes a village
  • Durango needs some work
  • Jaden lets us know what he thinks about cleaning his room
  • Random acts of welding
  • New HD DVR (you’ve got 20 seconds)
  • Rock paper scissors
  • Mongolian Grill

This week’s bonus footage: gas prices cause random reflections of finger shapes in the LCD readout (right around $60).

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:

    “It’s a handicapped sign”

    I loled.

  2. NYCWD says:

    I started rolling when you talked about kerning… b/c my boss at the newspaper used to tell me, “No one notices that!”

    Rock, paper, scissors rules.

    You used a credit card for the gas, right? Mine shuts off at $70.00.

  3. Dave2 says:

    Bad kerning should be punishable by death! Handicapped or not.

    Having done a lot of publishing over the years, kerning is one of those terms that a lot of people are not familiar with until you explain what it is… then most people are still massively confused until you create something with no concern for proper kerning… then the light goes on in their head.

    Years ago, we used to go to the Mongolian Grill… we always had a contest to see who could stack their bowl the highest. I won a few times… well, ‘won’ is a relative term, having to pack all of that food in my tummy in under an hour.

    Yeah, those doggone muffler bearings are eating me alive. I swear my mechanic has had to change mine 3 times in the past year! LOLOL

  6. Dragon says:

    Did you say “most worst?”

    It takes a village. hehehe

    Heyyyyy… that was longer than 3 minutes. Rock Paper Scissors went to like 3:04

  8. Ren says:

    Mmm… Mongolian Grille….

    I real ly hat ebad kerni ngtoo!

  9. You are so bad! ROFL @ the handicap sign (and feeling guilty for laughing!)

    Jaden is a cutie pie. And I wish gas really pumped that fast.

  10. Robin says:

    I’ll watch either on my lunch or this weekend. I’m sure it’s riveting.

  11. marilyn says:

    Really, look at the way the R extends down and to the right. You can’t adjust it any closer to the next letter without touching. The main problem is that they used all caps. That’s a font that just shouldn’t be used in all caps. It happens when the sign designer is told by the customer to change it to all caps after it was designed. The customer is always right… Blah!

    I’m going to go top of the headlamp fluid on the truck right now. Don’t want that manifold thing to happen to me.

    Good lord, man, I can’t believe I missed this….
    Sorry. Here I am again with late LOL-Whalls.
    Feel free to dock my paycheck.

    Avi, I edited out the part where I explained the joke. I don’t regret the decision.

    NYCWD, I’m not sure if it’s a credit card rule, or a pump rule, or a combination of the two. But yes, I used a CC. I’ve been to a few places now where it doesn’t shut off, but I don’t know if that’s because they raised it or what.

    Dave2, I knew you’d appreciate the topic.

    martymankins, I’m not big on oriental food, but MG is one place I can go because I can be me. I mean picky.

    Evil Genius, and they make these noises…

    Dragon, I was lip-synch-channeling.

    Miss Britt, yes, I said “most worst”. I was much tired. And I believe we’ve clarified the “going over than 3 minutes”.

    Ren, lunch?

    BlondeBlogger, re: handicap sign: I know!
    re: Jaden: I know!
    re: gas pumping: I know!

    Robin, well?

    marilyn, You hit the nail on the head – it’s the wrong font altogether.

    (everyone says) “It’s the wrong font”

    heh heh heh

    Poppy, I think he’d rather be floored than grounded.

    Janna, Good lord, Janna, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to post your LOL WHALLS! And this time, you did SIX.

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.
