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.

8:47 am
Post Meta :

I mentioned about a week ago how lucky I am in life and gave several examples.  I have some new examples to share with the Universe, and by proxy, you.

For one, when I got back to work on Wednesday, I put my $0.35 in the vending machine and got back not one, but TWO Pepsi cans!  I know!  I couldn’t believe it either!

But that’s not the extent of my luck.  No sir.

Karl from Secondhandkarl.com wrote an engaging guest post for me and introduced me to Jerron, the smiling idiot, aka “The Cornstarch Bandit.”  What’s interesting is Karl wrote about the “3 name” condition and some of you don’t know that I actually go by my middle name, Wayne.  And he didn’t pussyfoot around his gardening euphemism.

Then Robin from  The Road Less Unraveled told the hidden story of our past.  She showed off the one picture I didn’t think would ever surface.  There’s only one good thing about that picture and it’s right in the middle.

Then Marty.  Marty Marty Marty.  He took one of my blog themes and made his own.  And he did a darned good job, too.  It’s always a special feeling when someone goes to the trouble, effort, planning, and technical issues to actually get someone like Marty to post.  Oh wait.  I meant when someone goes through all that to MAKE a post for me.  Yeah, that’s it!  Most people don’t know that this is Marty’s second DITL.  Check out his first one.  It’s DITLicious!

My blog was subsequently subjected to the all-time hotness of Cissa, who continued the “take a theme, pass it around” trend and made her own version of the Stuff you don’t want to MISC series.  Yes, Cissa, you can definitely be Miss August.  Speaking of August, maybe I’ll finish your blog upgrade by then 🙂  And I loved the LOLcats – truly a whallmark of the series!

Sheila, the Charm School Reject confessed to the world her adoration of me.  I think we’re more alike than she realizes, except the nicotine part.  Oh, and I prefer Reese’s to whatchamacallits, and Pepsi to Dr. Pepper.  Plus I’m not smart enough to do self-deprecating humor.  Oh, and purple and green are vastly superior to pink.  But that’s it, really.  She also uncovered my super secret bipolar plot to have suggestive blog post titles do my innuendoing for me.

LeSombre was muy funnio in his Roast of me, and he wasn’t content to just roast the host with the most, but included all the other guest posters!   Here am thinking *I’m* lucky, but he claimed to be able to use Shash’s bazongas!  Talk about being lucky!  There are “snicker” posts, “heh” posts and all sorts of minor ways something can make you laugh, but this one actually earned the literal meaning of “LOL”.  I shall dub it LLOL (Literal Laugh Out Loud) or LOLNY (Laugh Out Loud, No Really).

So there you have it.  Proof that luck REALLY exists.

And lo, the people did comment thus:


  1. Green is my favorite color. Purple is my most hated color.

    You are very lucky sir. Except you would’ve been way luckier had those Pepsi’s been Dr. Pepper’s. Cuz, ya know, Pepsi tastes like butt.

    Whall my friend, only you would spell really with a capital Y. Must start doing that too. 😉

    LeSombre´s last blog post..Found him!

    Where the heck did you find a vending machine that charges only 35 cents?

    kapgar´s last blog post..If we took a holiday…

    • whall says:

      kapgar – One of the “perks” of my employer… it used to be we had free drinks in the vending machine and some time long ago it went to “cost”.

      • Ren says:

        whall – Grumble. Ours went from free to 75 cents at the start of this year. I started bringing in 2-liter bottles. Getting ice is kind of a pain, but better than paying 75 cents for 12 ounces.

    You are lucky, damn great guestposters you had!

    Robin´s last blog post..Matzo and Charoset and Manishevitz Oh My

  5. Sybil Law says:

    You are a lucky man, indeed!!! (I was also thrown by that 35 cent Pepsi – glad that was cleared up!)

    Sybil Law´s last blog post..S.O…L?!

    It was almost like you were here…. there were tweets and everything.

    marilyn´s last blog post..Sea Monkeys

  7. Janna says:

    You’re also lucky because you have an autographed piece of my old ratty underwear.
    Unless you sold it or burned it or something.

    Janna´s last blog post..So, um, whaddya think….?

  8. martymankins says:

    I’m with Kapgar… 35 cents for a soda and it’s not Shasta or Big K? FTW.

    It was a pleasure guest posting. Let me know when you head out of town again. I’ll make the magic happen again.

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.
