Some Assorted Stuff on This Friday

September 12, 2008

I delayed on the results for the question for obvious reasons yesterday….

here they are, cue the Looney Tunes music:

coming in first, hey it was basically his show: Bugs Bunny doc

second place was ordered from the Acme Catalog by Wile E Coyote

he’s despicable but came in third:Daffy Duck

he might not get what he wants but he came in fourth: Sylvester

He tawt he taw fifth place: Tweety

that’s all folks: Porky Pig is apparently not our favorite ham

Some funny stuff for you:

Word Press posts search terms on the admin page.  Here are some of the ways people have at least viewed my blog:  Random, scavenger hunt, and evil-eye headlight are some of the expected ones.  But Happy birthday Pee-Wee Herman, Scootle McNoodle, “what day of the week was 09-11-01”, Chief Wahoo Billiards, No Brain (how did they know?), and Belphagor are some of the ones that just make me laugh.  People are actually looking for this information.  I just hope whoever was looking for Scootle McNoodle got what they expected.

It is fun doing odds and ends on a Friday.  See you tomorrow with my “hairy” scavenger hunt photo.  (yes only one tomorrow)

Random Thursday Stuff

August 14, 2008

OK, so by now you figured out that I am moved and all settled in now. Let’s get back to business, shall we? I have the potato results from the other night and they are pretty much as I thought they would be.

Oiu Oiu, French Fries came in first with 47 pts

This is a straight fact, curly fries are second with 41 pts

I am not baked when I say that baked potatoes were third with 36 pts

A Tie for fourth between mashed and home fries…they both had 34 pts

Last and least apparently, not a chip of the above blocks..potato chips with 18 pts

After the cold hard facts, how about a photo….I took this with the old camera last week at the same time I took the parking lot sign photo.

This is the old Illuminating Company Building--the 55

This is the old Illuminating Company Building--"the 55"

Look at the cool mirror effect…you can see another building in the broad side and the clouds on the short side…

It is fun doing the same old crap in a very new place. Thanks for following the link and finding your way down this new latrine trench.


Thursday Evening….

August 7, 2008

It’s Thursday again and again I have various stuff to post. The results were in on the video games when Cricket chimed in with a deciding swing vote. We have a clear winner and no ties.

.

The most popular video game as voted by my great readers is…..

b. Space Invaders shot to the top scoring 48 pts.

c. Frogger hopped to a close second at 45 pts.

d. Pac Man ate up the third position with 42 pts.

a. Asteroids did not exactly blow up, it scored 39 pts.

f. My favorite Galaga finished a dismal 5th with 29 pts.

e. Nobody was digging Dig Dug..it finished with 28 pts.

Thanks for the input and I apologize for not including Centipede. I flat out missed that one.

.

I did buy my new camera last night and I love it so far. I have a lot of reading to do so I can fully use and appreciate it’s many features. I will not be shooting with it until I learn everything I need to know about it. Thanks Federal Economic Stimulus check + a few more bucks, I got the toy I wanted.

.

I will be posting a very special species post tomorrow. It seems there is a twist to a couple of species I posted about and this could lead to me trying something new. More to come…check in tomorrow for that.

.

Lastly, if enough of us have not already done this, I would like to express my extreme happiness with Amazon.com. Thanks to them, my old school metal CD collection is coming along nicely. I have been able to find and purchase several previously lost gems from the old days. This, on top of the fact that everything shows up so quickly (4-7 days).

.

It is fun updating my people on stuff. Thanks for voting in the “rank ’ems” and keep them coming.


Night Off……

August 6, 2008

The word for the week in the scavenger hunt is SPACE as chosen by dmarks.

.

I will post the video game results tomorrow.

.

I am going to possibly buy a new camera tonight, so my head is focused on that.

.

It is fun doing nothing. Thanks and have a nice night.


Bits and Pieces.

July 24, 2008

I have a few things to hit this evening. This will be one of those all over the place posts. I have results from the last two weeks’ questions. I have some stuff about Tuesday Tags field officers and something that I have seen and heard that annoys me.

.

In response to a couple of you who have taken graffiti photos: Please post them or email them to me and I will be more than happy to post them. I don’t have strict guidelines, I was just being a smart-ass. I like when others help me out with stuff. I think it’s great that you even think to take pictures of tags.

The thing that has annoyed me lately….the new 2008 word “stay-cation”. I hate when the admen get all cutesy and create these little words. Has anyone else heard this on the radio or seen it on the local news?

I have the results from the recent Monday questions…they are pretty interesting. (if you are a stat geek like me). I used a points system to score the answers for each individual option I gave you. #1 choices received 6 points, #2 answers got 5 points, and so on.

The results for the summer fun question are as follows:

1. Park=47pts

2. Long Drives=31pts

3. Backyard barbecues/parties=48pts

4. Swimming=31pts

5. Gardening=21

6. Chilling on the porch/balcony=53pts

The results for the restaurant style question are as follows:

1. McDonald’s=18pts

2. TGIFriday’s=31pts

3. Chinese=46pts

4. Steak=49pts

5. Mexican=42pts

6. Pizza=45pts

The quiz results worked out really good. I created a spreadsheet to tally the numbers. Do not be surprised if I keep doing the “rank them” questions for a while. I want to use my new toy all the time now.

.

Finally, last but not least…Renee now has a blog of her own.  Click here to go to her place.

.

It is fun doing an update once in a while. Thanks for coming by and checking out the numbers. Thanks for answering as always.


American Summer Week….

July 3, 2008

Hey everybody I am taking the next few days off. I will be back on Sunday with the Scavenger Shots, but until then its time to enjoy the holiday. Have fun, eat too much, drink too much, and try to keep all your digits in place this 4th of July.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

It is always fun taking some time off. Thanks for letting me go on a vacation.


Must Be Some Sort of Occasion?

June 13, 2008

Monkeys, midgets, and jugglers? It must be some sort of Evil-E special occasion. (emphasis on special–short bus special)………
