Another Milestone, Another Picture

Well I recently passed the 250 follower milestone and I am doing a happy dance. I am really glad that all of you come back to read my nonsense and my ramblings all the time. I promise to keep writing about the shit that pisses me off, the messed up stuff that always and only seems to happen to me, and other stuff that amuses me.

So thank you to all of you people who always read and comment on my posts, I truly appreciate it. And thank you to all of you who are always pimping me out to others. I am tipping my hat and my beer to all of you right now.

I have noticed a lot of posts lately asking for blogging advice, so I will pass some on. I am still fairly new to blogging but I would like to give you some of what has got me this far. I write about stuff that I find funny and I always try to inject humor into my posts. I know sometimes this is hard to do with some subjects, but it can be done. I write mainly for my enjoyment, and I write about stuff that I find entertaining. So my advice to you the reader is don’t get discouraged. Write about what you want to write about and what makes you happy. Eventually people will come around to your blog as there are people who will like your style, remember birds of a feather flock together. So keep up the work and good luck.

As you may or may not know, for every 50 followers that I get, I will post a picture of myself for your enjoyment. Last time I promised a picture of me in a drunken stupor so here you go. Remember ladies I am not responsible for you puking on your keyboard, monitors, or laptops so do not send me the bill.


The picture above is from a night out I had a while back at a local pub. I had tried rather unsuccessfully to hit on a couple of women (in front of my friends) and got shot down miserably. My friends were all teasing me about it and since I was getting drunker as the night went on, I became a little “ornery” as they say. So my friends stuffed me into the “time out” booth.

And since you all have been so warm and welcoming to my blog, here is a bonus picture of me about to be in a drunken stupor.


Thank you very much for your support of my blog, and when I get to 300 followers I will come up with another entertaining picture of me.

  10. At 300 can we get a picture of you in a loin cloth making a grilled cheese sammich?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh crap.. forgot to say ... CONGRATS !!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. @ D'Artagnan, thank you. I was only drinking the Corona Light because I had already drank all of the regular Coronas.

    @ Cajun, in hindsight that whole night was classic.

    @ Janie, thank you very much.

    @ Holly, I am pretty sure I am too fat to be wearing a loin cloth. But I will think about it. And thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congrats to you! I like Holly's idea for the loin cloth. I think you should do a photo shoot with different outfits like.. loin cloth, dominatrix, super hero... maybe all the village people?

  27. @ Barb, thank you and you are welcome.

    @ Brandy, post the pics and they will come.

    @ Laughingmom, thank you. I believe if my memory is correct, my friends did try to do that. They just couldn't find any willing victims.

    @ Zack, thanks.

    @ Auto, thank you very much.

    @ Galore, thank you. I love those phone booths as well.

  59. Hey Oilfield,

    I could have swore (which I did anyway) that I wrote you a "superb" comment - anything less deserved to be Bloggerfied in the last purge.

    However, since I don't see it anywhere - let me repeat myself (anything to hear myself write) - CONGRATS ON SURPASSING THE 250 MARK!

    So...were you expecting a call, or was that the designated "smoking room"!

    Love the photos - such a happy chap with drink in hand!

    Blog Hugs coming at you for being one of the "Cool" dudes in Bloggerville.

    Cheers, Jenny (clink, clink)
