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.

It’s been said I’m a lucky man.

Usually, it’s me saying it.  And I fully recognize how lucky I am. You know, in life.

Examples? I’m getting to use the last of my rapidly-expiring frequent flier miles for a nice little vacation to Tahoe/Reno.  I have a great job that I love.   I have all my taste buds, and I don’t even know what hemorrhoids are.  I see these commercials for them, and corns, constipation, asthma, indigestion, “mommy I don’t feel very fresh” and all sorts of bodily mishaps and thank my lucky stars I cannot even comprehend what they’re talking about.

Want more proof?  A friend of mine used some of her hotel rewards to get me two free nights at a nice place in Reno!  SEE??!?!?!?  I know!

And that’s not all.  I have a Zune.  I have a blackberry.  I have a decent laptop for work (this makes ALL the difference in my enjoyment of life).  I don’t mention the family much on ye old blog of whall, but everyone who knows me personally how fantastically great they are.  I don’t watch CSI:Miami.  I have both of my legs, arms, eyes and brains.  I don’t have bad hygiene.  I can read *and* write.  My parents gave me everything I needed but not everything I wanted and for that I am most thankful.

I could go on and on about lucky things about me and the great position I’ve been placed in life.  But I won’t.  And you know why?  Because I’ve contracted bribed begged convinced six (6) blog friends to do it for me!

That’s right!  I’m off on my little vacation and the next week or so will be in the capable hands of the following guest posters:

Karl Erikson from secondhandkarl.com on Sun 5th

Robin/Hismuse from roadlessunraveled.com on Mon 6th

Marty Mankins from banalleakage.com on Tue 7th

Cissa from cissafireheart.com on Wed 8th

SheilaCSR from charm-school-reject.com on Thu 9th

LeSombre from lesombre.ca on Fri 10th

???? Who knows? Well, maybe I do. <sneaky grin> on Sat 11th

If you need more evidence of the luck I possess, I don’t know what to tell you.  I guess I’d say; wait until I get back from Tahoe/Reno with all my winnings.

THEN you’ll see.

And lo, the people did comment thus:


  1. Poppy says:

    You were in a douche commercial?

    What are you asking for on Sat 11th? I’ll do it.

  2. Sybil Law says:

    I cannot wait to hear of your adventures in Reno!! (And also the guest posters…)

      Sybil Law – the guest posters are doing a fantastic job! Reno has been fun – about to go to the airport now and leave this fantastic place. Sigh.

  3. martymankins says:

    Reading the first line in your post, my thought went immediately to the ELP song “Lucky Man”

    Then I saw that feminine hygiene commercial and thought WTH?

    Have fun in Reno and Tahoe. I should note that it’s a pretty nice little drive from Reno to Tahoe (about 80 mins in decent weather)

    Wow. You mean some chick actually gave you some Marriott points of her own free will to stay at a hotel? She must be someone very special.

  6. Avitable says:

    Can’t believe you didn’t ask me to guest post! I’m so hurt. And crying here in the corner.

      Avitbale – One day you’ll be cool enough. I believe it. Now it’s your turn. Make that change! Be the “you” “you” want to be. Believe in yourself. Reach the stars.

      And here. I picked a flower for you. Don’t give up.

  7. So you’re not driving like you planned? Have fun! Wish I was going to be there. 🙁

    Naturally I WOULD pick this week to throw a dart at you.

    See http://www.golfwidow.net/archives/012227.html .

    Anyway, enjoy your downtime, secure in the knowledge that you’ll have an award waiting for you when you get back.

  9. You may want to rethink your definition of “lucky” at the end of this week…..I hope that your luck holds true while on your trip.

    And yes, I am a late commentor. I can’t help it if my google reader thingy hates me.

      SheilaCSR – the trip was A) paid for and B) successful in the gambling sense, which means I won enough to pay for all meals, cab rides and tips, plus I’m taking a couple new benjamins home :). Those are the best trips!

    BlondeBlogger – silly blogger, road trips are for kids!

    (REN and I are doing a road trip to TequilaCon which can almost be like RENo :))
