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.

As I was looking through my past Favorite Things series, I noticed that they all had to do with Food or Drink:  

  • Skull Mug from Treasure Island
  • Pepsi
  • Loss Bread
  • Apple Butter
  • The Oldtimer burger from Chili’s
  • Blockbuster Online (helps me spend less time out getting movies and more time eating)
  • Akismet and “recheck queue” feature (less spam means more REAL food)

If you hang around the Wayne very much, you notice that he almost always has his SwissTool with him.  He also sometimes switches between third person and first person.  I do that sometimes.  The SwissTool is not a leatherman, but it’s a lot like it.  Yes, I am one of those people, who likes to be ready for the end of the world or a brawl in an alley with a Communist.  Or, more likely, I want to be able to fix something if it’s broken and I don’t want to have to get my GPS unit to find the toolbox.

In particular, I like the following things:

  • It’s hefty but not too hefty.  Very solid and obviously made quite well.
  • I can get at the tools without having to open it up, because they open out from the sides.  Other models make you open up the pliers in order to get to the gadgets.
  • All the blades and tools on the outside have a lock to prevent severed fingers.  I *really* like having less severed fingers.  I prefer several less severed fingers.

I only wish it had scissors.

For your viewing pleasure, here’s a few of the things I can do with my SwissTool. (press the play icon below to start the flash movie)
