You Carry the Fate of Us All, Little One...


"Legolas" or "Legless", you decide...

I'm up to 12 followers now! Woohoo! Do I win a prize? Actually, #11 was Shannon, who already followed unofficially, and #12 is Josh, who only hit "follow" cuz his mommy asked him to. He'll usually only stop by if I notify him that I posted something about wrestling. Still, 12 is pretty good! It's a Biblical number! Which means I must be in a better place with God. Hey, I'll take any sign I can get at this point... I know, I know... ixnay on the 'wishing for more wishes'...

Decent day today, actually. Rug Shop Day, got some things done, but not as much as I'd liked to have. Had a nice dinner with Mom (Capital M) after work, briefly cruised the Fantasy/Sci-Fi section of a big book store, then drove the heck home! Did a Target run with the Little Woman (Capital L&W - a.k.a. my Better Half, [Capital B&H]), came home, cleaned up my email archive, ate a bowl of late-night left-over lasagna (What can I say? I'm into Acid Reflux [Capital A&R]), and now, Blogito Ergo Sum (I Blog, Therefore I Am). After this, I start on a new project for Piranha and then read a book into the wee hours.

What I'm most looking forward to at the moment is the upcoming LAN party! Woohoo! A little Warcraft 3, a little UT3, a little beef jerky... OK, fine, a LOT of beef jerky. What can I say? I loves me some nitrates. It increases my shelf life. I plan on living to 100 years old, at least. What's that Groucho Marx quote again? "I'm going to live forever, or die trying." Something like that.

I was really hoping something interesting would happen today... nope. That can only mean one thing. Yep. Time for the first installment of my new series:

Celebrities With Vye's Hair Quickly Photoshopped Onto Them.


We'll start with Tom Cruise... I don't like you because you're dangerous.


Next up, the Duke, John Wayne... he's not as game as Beau, but Stonehill says he can jump a four rail fence!


And finally, Bruce Lee. Never take your eyes off your opponent, even when you bow.

I suppose the next round should tie into Todayve In History somehow... I'll have to ponder the best way to employ the series... yes, I know, they all look really fake, sorry. That's why I added the word "Quickly" to the title of the series. Besides, it's supposed to be funny, not perfect... If I get a better pic of Vye's hair, then maybe I'll try to find pics and make them look as perfect as I can. You know, cuz I don't have anything better to do! Actually, that's a true statement... I don't have anything better to do...

The only interesting bit of historical trivia for July 14th is that on July 14, 1969, the US $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 bills are officially withdrawn from circulation. I read that fact, and you know what my first thought is? Hey, who were the Presidents on those bills?



OK, now memorize these, in case you go on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. I may not be there for you to call with one of your life lines, then you'll be sunk. McKinley on the $500, Cleveland on the $1,000 (the only US President to serve two terms that weren't consecutive), Madison on the $5,000 (one of the founding fathers), and Chase on the $10,000 (he wasn't a President, but he was a Senator, and he served as US Treasury Secretary under Lincoln, and was also Chief Justice of the US.) I couldn't find a briefcase small enough for 10,000 dollars...

But it didn't stop there. They actually released a $100,000 bill! Dang!

Good ol' Woodrow Wilson, our 28th President. So if anyone says they'll give you any US bill if you can name the President on the bill, you can now say "Gimme Woodrow Wilson please! Wilson! I'm sorry Wilson!"

I suppose I should do a series called Vye's Hair Photoshopped Quickly Onto US Presidents...

I picked up 3 points yesterday for the quote "your life is a thread, it either breaks or it doesn't," which was from Amazing Grace. Props to me. I rock. Speed Round begins on yesterday's remaining quote(s)... I won't tell you how many, if any, are left... MUAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Guess I'll bail for tonight. I have a Dave-O update for you in the next post. Got some cool pics to post. Next month, he's doing the underwear billboard in Times Square... All right, I'm going inside. You can just stay here and watch for sharks. Until tomorrow, remember, in my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies.

David Wagner said...

Dang, other than Dave-O, Vye is the most manly man I know... dude's a beast. I wanna be a cross between Dave-O and Vye when I grow up...

Avari said...

Hahahaha!

Dude, seriously, what kind of a woman would leave comments like Vye : } I even made comments about the prize being a big fart on me and saying, "that is something Vye would do". o_O You guys are all Crazy!

hahaha

Abbie said...

haha, aww, poor vye!!! haha, but you were so warriorish in the comic strip!!!! haha, that is totally hysterical though, at your expense vye, lol, sorry :D
btw, Woodrow Wilson is my favorite president!! I want some money with him on it :D

havah said...

Never fear, Vye, I knew you were a guy from one of Dave's prehistoric era blog entries. :)

Can't make any comments on the warrior-beast nature though since I've never seen you. I'll trust Dave et al on that. ;)

Vye said...

<- I AM DOOD.

kthnxbai.

<3 Havah

Paula Titus said...

Vye - I was strictly going by your name, I've known a few females who call themselves Vye - I thought it was short for Vivian or some such. I can assure you your posts are very manly and testonerrific. Which makes much more sense to me now. :)

Actually, I think Vivian can be a male name too...(shrug)

Vye said...

ah, I see.

Okay, now only Bob is out in the cold. :-P

Avari said...

BUAHAHAHAHAHA!

havah said...
