While I'm away.

I'm leaving Iraq for 20 or more days. I am so looking foward to be going home for that time. Though while I am away I don't think I will update at all. But, If you do like reading my blog I suggest that you check out my renter this week. If after you have checked out my renter then if you want to go down to all my links and say hello to everyone.

Al righty I'm out....

Worst Day of the Year???

I don't know about all that. Today has been wonderful at least for me. It isn't everyday that I have such a outstanding day! So all in all if you had a bad day I'm sorry ... then again I'm not sorry if you having a bad day means that I will have a good day, nothing against you but I hope you have bad days more often. Yes, I am thinking about me right now so neeh neeh...

I picked up 2 CD's today while I was at the post exchange I was surprized they had the one though...

CD1: Numbers From The Beast - An All Star Tribute To Iron Maiden.
Great CD. If you like Metal... Classic or New you will like this CD.

CD2: Depeche Mode - Playing The Angel
Outstanding!!! I find this CD kind of hard to explain... Though if you have ever listened to DM I suggest getting this CD. If you like Nine Inch Nails though you would like something that resembles NIN in a softer tone then this is for you!

Anyway... It's January 23rd. I go on leave January 26th. 2 days away!!! I CAN NOT WAIT!

Blogger Pay Week.

I have a crazy idea. I don't know if it will work or not but it's worth a try. This is what you have to do.

While surfing blogs click on their 'pay links' and surf them for a few pages.

You ask why?

Cause your clicks will raise them some cash and if we get almost everyone that surfs to do that then we will all get a Blogger Pay Day. So for the next week while surfing hook up your fellow bloggers. Some times Karma is a good thing too!

The Second Hand is Painfull

Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick.....

I'm awaiting the day in which I can get out of the sandbox for a few days. If you have read previous posts of mine you should know what I mean. While I sit and wait all I hear right now is the second hand. Tick, Tick, Tick.... There are 2 clocks in my office. One clock has the current time in Iraq while the other clock has the time from the Eastern United States on it. These clocks are both right but fractions of a second in difference. You will hear one then the other and so on. It's funny though, some days I don't hear them but, knowing that I'm leaving in a few days to go on leave that's all I hear. Other then the helicopters and planes that fly over head from time to time. I'm tring to look at it in the fashion that I'm one second closer to being home but, for right now I'm slowly ticking down as the time ticks by.

Dubba Tee Eff?

I have noticed something about Blogexplosions Battle of the Blogs. At this moment in time there are 8 Battles going on. Which means 16 individuals in the contest. Each battle needs 15 votes to complete and people are unable to vote in their own battles (obviously). So if that is the case then why does it take anywhere from 45 minutes to 5 hours for one battle to complete? Simple people put up their blog for the battle blotter and leave. They don't vote on any of the other battles. Granted I usually vote on the battles I want to vote on but I never vote on them all. There are just some topics I prefer to stay away from Politics and Religion to be the main ones. Though I do vote unless 2 blog friends are going at it then I don't vote in those either for the obvious reasons.

I also feel that there are way too many categories. I've seen blogs sit on that blotter for various things for days at a time. Those categories should be down grated or reclassified to something like general/misc. at least. There is a battle all feature though I suppose a lot of people are worried about their ranking. Seriously who gives a damn. It's exposure and it's 15 guaranteed traffic hits during that time. For example there is a lifetime worst 50 fighters link on their page. There you will see The Snoop Zone this blogs record is 22 Wins / 312 Losses. That's 5010 clicks to this blog. Everyday I see this blog in a running battle. I know some people think that he may be dumb for continuing his diminishing record but, that is not it. He has gotten massive traffic from the battle of the blogs. After all that's why we join a traffic producing site right? So that we get traffic.

So if your in a battle vote on a few of the other battles if you do that then your battle will be over quicker and you can get into another to start getting more traffic. BlogExplosion has a 1 credit one view policy. If you pay 10 credits for a battle that's 5 free views. And if you win then you just got 15 views at the expense of the other person. When you vote if you pick the winning blog then you get a percentage of a credit. Really that doesn't mean crap but as the old saying goes. Every cent helps.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

On January 26th I'll be beginning my leave process. I'm going to be leaving Iraq on that day eventually ending up at home. It's been almost 8 months since I was last home. I'm slowly getting excited since I will be leaving Iraq for possibly 20 - 25 days. I will be granted 15 days of leave in the United States. Then there is also travel time between here and the States and visa versa. I know that here I don't do a whole lot but I'm pretty sure I'm ready for a little vacation.

Also I will not be renting my blog until after I return from leave because I seriously doubt that I will even look at my blog while I'm home. Not because of my lack of interest in my readers or anything but, I will be doing all kinds of other stuff. I'm going to be visiting family and friends, car shopping, and bar hopping (not too much though). I also plan on promoting your site (gigotti78 and I) while I'm home which means going to a few local events, talking to people, and passing out the stickers that are sitting at my parents house right now. No need to worry after I start the promotion back at home I'll be opening the website through my blog. Though I must remind you now that it's a site that revolves around the local area of my town. At least for now.

There are a lot of things on my mind lately. I'm going to leave it at that. No need to get into that at the moment. Maybe it time to start a blog about that and only that. Though it will be a personal blog not to be seen by many people at all. Perhaps I'll post about it after I'm on leave this way I might be able to straighten out my mind before I start babbling.

And neither is my website.... Yet.

Building A Website.

I'm currently in the process of building a website. I don't know anything about anything when it comes to building a website. SO..... I've been using Microsoft FrontPage and uploading all of my information from that to my host provider. So far I'm proud of myslef for what I've done already. I've managed to do all kinds of stuff just from screwing around with FrontPage and I've managed to learn quite a bit of stuff. Though I'm in the process of putting in a ShoutBox of my own. Since I enjoyed using the BlogExplosion ShoutBox before the changes. With the help of BelgianBrighton with the ShoutBox I can say that I almost got it! I just have to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've managed to put a box on the page for the chat .... um... I think I just figured out what I'm doing wrong :D I'll have to mess around with it in a few minutes. I'll be back with more information about this shortly..... Thanks BB!

ok... maybe later later I'll check it. I just went to my host providers site and it turns out that they are hav ing a slight issue with MySQL so I'll have to wait until later when I get to my home computer to access the bulliten board. Since I'm not able to access that from my office.

Zaphod's Heads

Zaphod's Heads is a political blog leaning closer to the far left liberal side. Glyn Evans is the mastermind behind this blog. He lives in Alberta Canada and is mostly concerned with the welfare of the world. He also has an extremely great outlook on religon which I completely agree with. All are called the same but there is only one god with a different name.

As Glyn put it... "If mankind cannot agree on this simple, basic thought, then they are doomed."

Check out what he has to say and also in the top left under the banner for his page there is a link titled My Political and Religious Views. Click that first to better understand.

The Year Is 2160

Man has finally gotten to Mars and found that there is life on the red planet. We have finally set up a civilization there amongst the alien lifeforms and allowed them to live with us in our civilizations. At 101 Mars Main Lane lived a couple. 2 humans to be exact. At 103 Mars Main Lane lived a couple. 2 aliens for sure. The two couples have become close friends. Then, one day while they are all sitting in the back yard's of their homes enjoying the weather. The 2 couples began talking about sex. After a couple stories shared amongst friends the couples agreed to exchange partners for an evening.

Than night the human female and the male alien were about to engage in the physical activity. When suddenly the human says "I don't think you will be able to reach me with your member. Let alone me feel anything." The alien looks up proudly and smiles then promptly slaps himself in the fore head and tugs on his ears. When he slapped himself on his fore head his penis grew in length. After he tugged on his ears his penis grew in girth. Then the 2 enjoyed what eachother had to offer. During the act the female human started slapping him on the fore head and pulling on his ears achieving a mind blowing orgasm.

While in the other house the human male and the alien female were having a hard time understanding what was exactly happening. The human couldn't understand why the alien was slapping his head and pulling on his ears. So eventually they decided to stop and just sit back and watch a movie.

The following morning the partners returned back to one another. The human male asked the human female how the sex was. She responded with "Outstanding!" She then asked him the same question. He looked over and smiled then replied "I have a head ache and my ears hurt. I still don't understand why she kept slapping me on the fore head and pulling on my ears."
