Thanks, Plugs & Polls!

Hi guys,

I haven't said it for a while, but many thanks for all your recent comments! Considering I haven't made a post about me or my life in a loooong time, and I really only post humorous (to me anyway) stuff now, with the odd cutie thrown in; I'm happy to receive any comments at all. Haha!

I really do appreciate them all!!!

To those of you that have emailed me; I thank you most sincerely!! It's really nice to know that there are people who think about and possibly care about me!!

You're the best!!

On to the 'plugs' then... A warm welcome to three new followers, who each have their own blogs:

First up is 18 year old US student Dan, from the Daily Dan blogspot. He's been in love with his best friend for four years, but before he fell in love with him; he really didn't like him at all! Weird? Go check him out and decide for yourself! Of course his blog is about school and other stuff too and it's a great read. Allegedly, he's also "super-cute" (I think that was Mirrorboy's description), a great american football player and loves playing basketball too! So there you go, if that hasn't made you want to check him out; I don't know what will. Lol!

Next is Highwayman, who's blog is called The Night Rider. He's 35, a truck driver, lives in Salt Lake City, Utah and he's married with 3 children. In his own words, he is "struggling to find his path in life." The text below is taken from one of his recent posts (I hope he doesn't mind) and I think it will give you a better understanding of what he's been through, and still going through now, than I ever could...

"...My experience with my parents had such a negative impact on me that it threw me back into the closet and locked it with a deadbolt until about a year ago.
During this time however, I managed to get married to a woman and fathered 3 children. They are 13, 11, and 8. One boy and two girls. Don't get me wrong, I love my wife because she is the mother of my children, however as of about a year ago, that is simply not enough for me anymore. I found myself wanting more than just the connection of children. I desired a true love, where we couldn't stand to be apart for more than a few hours at a time. I just don't have that with the mother of my children. I can't write anymore right now as it is painful for me to think about abandoning my children for my own happiness..."

So please pay him a visit and offer whatever support you can. That is one situation I'm glad I will never be in, and it's more common than many people think. I have had the same situation in my sister's family, so I really feel for Highwayman and his family. Also, he sounds like a truly nice guy (and I'm sure he is).

Finally we have Bob. Yay!!! I'm sure he must have broken some kind of record for the amount of followers and comments received on a debut post. Haha!! And of course; he deserves each and every one of them. For those regular readers among you, you may remember his interview from my "An Interview With..." series. He's a really nice guy; helpful, considerate, caring and generous to a fault! He's always there with words of encouragement and I'm really happy that he finally decided (or was pushed into. Lol!) to start his own blog.

Haha! So excited I forgot to tell you what it's called... Riding the Wave. It's brand new, only one post, so there's no catching-up to do either. Please go and say "Hi!" to a wonderful guy!

There are some other blogs that are new to my lists (on the right hand side-bar) too. One of them has been about for a looong time and has had 1,275,196 (and rising) visitors, but strangely enough it only had 23 followers up until Saturday. Then I followed, to make it 24 and then Mirrorboy plugged the site on Sunday/Monday and now there's 28, but I still thinks that that's not enough. So much time and effort has been put into this blog, so please visit him and show your appreciation by leaving a comment. And, you could always become a follower :)

Now, I have visited it and left comments in the past, but not on a regular basis. I really should've started following it ages ago too because there are so many beautiful guys on there it's unreal. And, it's not just beautiful guys either; it's about fashion, film and TV too. Oh, you must have a look at Bloggy Bear's archives. Soooo cute!!! There are also stacks of links to other cool sites to keep you "stimulated" too. So, the author is... Deejohn and the blog, of course, is Westasian.

Last but not least there's Ben. A 20 year old
from the US in his third year of University, studying a Bachelor of Communication with a major in Communication Management. His blog is called Confessions of a Poor Student and it's about his life at University, work, his boyfriend, his family and friends etc. His latest post is really quite sad, and happy! But it sounds like he's been going through a rough time like many other bloggers. So, please go and give him your support and encouragement.

Now for the polls... SOD 'EM!! I really can't be bothered now. Haha! Maybe another time. This post has taken me ages and my pc has crashed 3 times too. Thank God for 'autosave' Lol!

I'm going to finish my fruit salad before it goes warm :)

Take care guys and enjoy the rest of the week!

Men are like Laxatives; They irritate the crap out of you!

Hi Guys,

That's not my opinion btw, just the first line of another meaningless chain-letter that I received today. I get these things all the fucking time by email and text but I've given up on asking for the people responsible to quit sending them to me. They do send me some really funny stuff too, so I guess I shouldn't really complain, but... FUCK OFF! ... I HATE THESE THINGS!!

I've NEVER continued a chain, and never will, but I thought this one (and especially the fun one at the end of the post) were particularly witty for chain-letters, so I'm sharing them (how lucky are you? Lol!)

#1 (from my sister-in-law)...

Men are like... Bananas
The older they get, the less firm they are!

Men are like... Weather
Nothing can be done to change them!

Men are like... Blenders
You need one, but you're not quite sure why!

Men are like... Chocolate Bars
Sweet, smooth, & they usually head right for your hips!

Men are like... Commercials
You can't believe a word they say!

Men are like... Department Stores
Their clothes are always 1/2 off!

Men are like... Government Bonds
They take soooooooo long to mature!

Men are like... Mascara
They usually run at the first sign of emotion!

Men are like... Popcorn
They satisfy you, but only for a little while!

Men are like... Snowstorms
You never know when they're coming, how many inches you'll get or how long it will last!

Men are like... Lava Lamps
Fun to look at, but not very bright!

Men are like... Parking Spots
All the good ones are taken, the rest are handicapped!

send this to all the remarkable women you know, as well as to any understanding good-natured, fun kinda guys you might be lucky enough to know !!!!!!!!!!

[Dancing Baby gif.] You have just been KISSED by the Dancing Baby! Something good will happen to you at 1:00-4:00 pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Get ready for the biggest shock in your life if you break this. You will not be cursed but good luck will not come your way for the next year. Everyone can use some fun and Good Luck, so send this to 5 people in 15 minutes!

#2 (from a male friend)...

If I was ever going to continue a chain; it would be with this!

I know there's been a lot of sadness in our community of late, so I hope this post goes some way to cheering you up. If you haven't already noticed the link to the Razz Tribute Site in the top right hand corner of the blog; please feel free to click on the picture to visit it and pay your respects. I think Razz would have laughed at #2, not sure about #1 though :)

That's all folks!

Take care,

Farewell to Razz!

Hi Guys,

I was deeply saddened and upset yesterday, when I learned that Razz had passed away on 26th March. My thanks to torchy!, Ste and NG for letting us know.

Although the news wasn't unexpected, it still hit me like a speeding train and I spent most of yesterday in my room crying. I'm welling-up again now and I thought I was all cried-out!

I never chatted with Razz but we did exchange emails and comments. He was the first person to comment on my blog, and also to follow it. I loved his sense of humour, fun and adventure and his zest for life!

During my time offline while I was moving etc. I managed to check my emails one day and torchy! had sent me a copy of Razz's post about his illness. Of course I was completely gutted but I couldn't email him from the place I was actually checking my email, so I had no choice but to wait until our ISP sorted out our Internet connection at home. Eventually it was sorted out and shortly before he died we exchanged emails. This is an excerpt from mine: "... that since I'd been offline I'd been wondering whether I was doing the right thing by ridding myself of my home and belongings, and heading off to Spain. After reading your post (which torchy! copied for me while I was away) I decided that it was most definitely the right thing to do... life is too short and precious to waste. We never know what's around the corner, so we should seize the moment whenever and wherever we can."

I emailed him again with replies to some questions he'd asked, but alas, I didn't get a reply... now I know why. Razz's death has served to reinforce my thoughts, and my decision, and I will truly miss him for many reasons.

The following excerpt was taken from Razz's post:

Talking about death at the local

"at the pub, we got to talking about stuff. death was one of the topics of the conversation - a perfect one for such a dreary day. we came to the conclusion that if one really look closely at why he/she fears death, it is really because of what lies after death. maybe a lot of you have already realised this, but i had never really thought much about this until this afternoon. some would say there is nothing after death, whilst others may be believe in the heavenly afterlife, or doomed one in hell. for now, i'm taking the middle ground and say that there is an afterlife, but an afterlife where we have control of its quality, just like this life."

I hope he's right, and that he's taking control of his new life right now!

I'm going to try my hardest to get along to Brighton Pride this year, and while I'm there I'll have a pint (or two) for him!

God Bless You Razz!

Hello to RC!

Just a quickie to say hello and welcome to RC from Mental Doodles blog. He describes himself as "Quietly confident. Friendly. Wicked sense of humour. Known to get crazy on the dance floor. Enjoys fly fishing" and he's another fellow Brit! Yay!

Please pay him a visit and say "Hi!" (which I haven't yet done myself... naughty boy!)

Anyway, thanks for following and linking RC... I have reciprocated and I'm looking forward to catching-up on your posts!

Take care,

Edit: Hello, Humour and A Few Tasty Pics

Hi guys,

As you may have noticed; I haven't been blogging much at all recently and I'm not sure that I will be for the foreseeable future either. Anyway, I'd like to say a belated "hello and welcome" to my six new followers:

Micky from It's getting better blog, who is also the author of Kieran's Kingdom.

Then there's 16 year old Irish lad Jamsey from Me, Myself nd My Hand and Joe Q. Public from loads of blogs. You can find them on his profile. Actually there's one particular blog of Joe's that I view regularly, but it's not listed on his profile so I'd better not mention it in case he has a good reason for not wanting to display it on there (you can always put me right on that point Joe).

from Overrated Integrity has also joined recently, along with goleftatthefork from Go Left At The Fork (which is brand-new today, so you heard it here first folks!) and Scott Conley who doesn't seem to have a blog, but who knows with this weird bloody "Friend Connect" thingy. Anyway Scott... if you do have a blog then let me know and I'll give you a "plug" asap!

If you haven't already visited these blogs... please do so! There's some really great stuff to be read/seen :)

Thanks to all of the above and to everybody else who follows or reads my pathetic little blog, it means a lot to me folks!!

So, as I've nothing of any importance to write about I suppose I'll add some humorous photo's ... as usual ... boring ... *yawn*

Oops! Don't know where that one came from!!

Or that one!

And just some cute pics to finish with...

Copy & Paste

A Hot Dog

A Hot Boy

Well that's all folks!! Until next time...

Take care and be good!!
