Not so much a post but…

So I love you guys, and if you don’t know know you know, people (where did you think I was going with that?). And that love extends to the comments I get from from you. So keep them coming. I’ve gotten some good ideas for posts thanks to your comments, including a couple I wasn’t expecting. 🙂 This is basically an answer to a couple of them.

First off, the lovely Ms. Sula mentioned something about “forcing my hand on a new topic”. Well indeed she did and I love her for. I’ve since sent message to Sula about that, but that post has been sitting in my brain since that time. It’s practically written too. Here’s the thing, I can and do come out of the blue with a post, but some things like product or website reviews take a little thought or else they end up like this. That ain’t pretty, but it’s mine. 🙂 Anyways, you get the idea. That’s part of the reason I started blogging, but I’ve said that before. Might take me a minute to get those out than one out of thin air. I don’t like to over produce things either. You’d think I was some kind of writer. At any case it is coming. By the way, to all that have wondered about the co-blogging thing, I definitely will speak on that pretty soon.

Now, my fave bootleg lady, Dejanae, mentioned Utterz and Twitter (because I had done so) and I plan to talk about Twitter possibly next post or so. Utterz, I’ve heard people using, including Deja, and I may give it and/or something like it a shot. I like giving stuff like this a whirl. Miss Deja also said something about me putting up a naked vlog (before laughing her ass off, mind you. 🙂 This is how I wrap all of this together. I personally believe that I have a face for radio and a voice for writing. In other words, me no like a my voice or face. That’s not to say that I feel as though I’m a hideous beast, I just feel a sort of of way about putting myself out there like that (anymore than I already have). Plus, with my luck, somebody from my job would see it and that’d be all she wrote. That said, I’d probably do it balls and all in a more controlled environment than Youtube. There is actually a way to do that, but Ida know…baby steps, fam, baby steps. I could do the voice thing way easier right now. Besides, some of you all have seen my picture around the net. Would you really want to see that in the buff? And no, I ain’t scurred, much, just that the whole vlogging thing is best suited for better equipped people than I. In other words, Deja, if you did it, I’d think about it. What’s say? 🙂

And almost finally, Deja asked if all I do is take pics of ice cream. No, man. It was there, I shot it. I do love photography and would love to do some serious shot, but that requires skill and equipment that I feel I do not possess. May take it up, though. And it should come to no surprise to anyone that I love nude photographs amongst them all. Call me a perv all you want, but eff it, I’m honest. As for my favorite bowl? It’s an old cereal bowl that I seem to have gravitated to a many moons ago. Matter of fact, here’s the picture.

Now on to the idea of a blog crush post. I like the idea. I may just do it. Oddly enough, the problem is that if I do that post, the people will see it. 🙂 (*BLUSH*)

I think that about wraps this up. Oh wait, there is one more thing. Gee double said something about talking about sex more than doing it. I personally would like to hear her views on the subject. If you would too (I would encourage it), go question her up on her site. Tell her I sent you. (*Cue devilish grin*)

And finally finally(in what sure is looking to be me copying other folks), if you have any questions of me, sites or such you want to know about, give me a shout. I’ll try to answer what I can. You could also ask sex type questions, but you must really like me for doing so. 🙂

Aaagh, they got me!

I guess this was bound to happen eventually. I’m kinda sad that it wasn’t the naked vlog thing that’s going around. Wasn’t gonna do it, but it would have been flattering(ok, I kid about that).

Yep, I’ve been tagged, you’ve been warned and it goes a little something like this:

The rules are as follows:
* link to the person that tagged you :
* post the rules on your blog
* share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
* tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
* let each random person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Since Kayos: The Kaotic one tagged me and the rules are above, here now are the deets:

1) have a HUGE stack of unopened, unwatched DVDs sitting near me that date back ohhh a couple or years (3-5ish).

2) I love cheese. I like Elbow Macaroni. I can’t STAND Macaroni & Cheese!

3) I can’t go a day without palming my wife’s booty. It’s not for good luck so much. It’s kinda like pulling the string on an Elmo Doll. I have to hear her say something about it. I should feel bad about the last one, but I don’t.

4)

5) Every Sunday, I read the paper for the circulars, but they have to be in a particular order:

  1. Comics
  2. Sears
  3. Target /K-mart
  4. Dick’s Sporting Goods (and I have NO idea why)
  5. Toys R Us
  6. Staples /Office Max or Depot
  7. HH Gregg
  8. Circuit City
  9. Best Buy

6) I can’t be in a conversation with anyone with something they say triggering a song in my head (or me thinking something”dirty” about the situation). Mostly, it’s the songs.

and because I feel like it, I’m giving up another one.

Bonus: There are a couple of blog crushes I would soooooo love to meet one day.

So there. And now for the next victims. Just about everbody here has probably been tagged already, but I hadn’t seen posts, if so. Soooo Gee Double, Nobelle, Killah K, Dilly, Virtuous, and a special special for my girl, Mojito Mami, who need to be blogging anyway. Yea, I said it!

Now then, go and do the damn thing.

Testing out mobile blogging

If you are seeing this, then you are up way too early or I haven’t taken this down yet. Chances are, it’s the latter.

I’ve had a cellphone for about a month and just thought to set it up for some mobile blogging should the need(or boredom) arrives. Since I haven’t been too consistent on the blog anyway, this might not happen much. I say that, but given how much time I Twitter(more on that soon), that’s probably not true. I am discovering very quickly blogging this way has it’s limitations. Anyway, if you’ve been to the site in the last week, you’ve noticed a post that could have very well come from this phone (and a side eye from a miss Dejanae (hate the fact that I can’t link proper from here) to whom I have to thank for the comment) that I have NO clue as to how it got sent last Saturday. I didn’t set it up that day, so it wasn’t from that. I own no, so I guess it’ll be a mystery.

I also set this thing up to post to my Flickr account(don’t bother unless you want see a bowl of Ice Cream I recently took (it’s in my favorite bowl, at least). At any rate, this has gone on far too long and my fingers are starting to cramp. This thing does a full keyboard, but still. May post pics of it. BTW, now do ya’ll see why don’t blog much about my personal life? Exactly. And miss Scribefire too…

Let your vanity searches come to you

All of ya’ll probably know about this already, so take it as a PSA for the rest of the class.

Alright, so the powers that be over at Google thought it would be handy for folks that like to search themselves out on the web to not have to keep coming to their site every time the whim to do so hits them. So, they set up Google Alerts to keep them from having to. This is how it works:

You go here and put in your name search term(s), type (from blogs, video, news, the whole ball of wax, etc), email address, and how often you want to be alerted. Every time your name the term(s) come up, you get an email on it. Because, you know, you’d want to know every time your name the term(s) come up, right? Right. You can also have more than one alert set and can manage them from here(if you have Google account, all the better).Oh, keep in mind that this is like any other search, so if you are not getting what you are expecting, you may have to tweak your search terms.

Oh, and I’m sure it’d be good for those who search on a specific topic frequently, but let’s be real here.

Alright, now that you’re armed with this knowledge, I’ve got a question or two.

Be honest:

  1. Have you ever done a vanity search?
  2. Why did you do it the first time?
  3. Did you expect to find anything incriminating?
  4. Did you find anything interesting? If so, what was it?
  5. Did you find anything that you wish you can change?

Me:
1. Yep, a couple of times on my real name and once for my pseudonym (you gotta do it every now and then).
2. A co-worker of mine said he had Googled my name found a bunch of people. I meant to question why the hell he was Googling my name.
3. nope, thank goodness.
4. Yea, there is an artist with the same as me. Also, there are more people with my real name than I thought.
5. Yea, I wish I had copped the artist’s website name before he did. The minute he lapses, I’m pouncing on it. Also, I’m out there a good bit, apparently. I’ve even seen ED posts in the search. It’s funny. I have been signing up for a good bit lately.

What say you?
