Punday, December 14th

Hey, does anyone out there know what a narminal egg is?

I was asking a friend about getting one of those big screen TVs. He cautioned me that they cost a narminal egg.

Happy 1st Blogosversary to Me!

One year ago, I set out on an epic journey. A journey with the goal of publishing the insane ramblings of my mind for the whole world to see. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. I’m humbled that those who follow this blog regularly take valuable time out their day to read my posts. Thank you. To those lurking out there, I also thank you for listening in and encourage you to post comments. I love hearing what people think.

My importantly (and least expectedly), I have made some great new friends along the way, and kept in better touch with some existing friends.

I can’t wait to see what year 2 brings. Let’s go!


Reasons I’m Smiling Today

You know, there are lots of things going on in the world, the country, and even personally that I could fret about. However, I’m finding lots of things to smile about. I’d rather focus on those. Here they are, in no particular order.

  • It’s Friday! That’s always a good reason to be happy.
  • The Broncos are ranked #9 nationally and poised to be invited to a BCS bowl game. Tomorrow, they will kick some Vandal butt.
  • We are entering my favorite time of the year with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up. It’s always an opportunity to spend cherished time with family and friends, and enjoy good food and good times. More importantly, it’s a time to renew and reflect on the things that are truly important.
  • In just 3 short days, the Older Daughter will be getting her driver’s license. While this generates lots of mixed feelings with me, I’m very proud and excited for her.
  • I have a job that I love. Just 5 short months ago I was facing a layoff in a really tough job market. I was fortunate enough to find a new job and have no time out of work. The fact that I absolutely love the job is a big plus also.
  • I have the best family and friends in the world. They are more loving and supportive of me than I feel that I deserve at times.
  • Blogging rules! DITH is nearing its one year anniversary (just a few short shopping weeks left folks). I am having a great time and have made some great new friends along the way.
  • Did I mention it’s Friday? Have a good weekend!

Bryan: The Interview

My friend Bekki over in Nectarville has started a new interview feature on her blog. I was honored to be the first of her peeps to be interviewed. Check out the interview to learn way more about me than you probably ever wanted to know.  🙂

While you’re there, have a look around at some of her other material. She also has a poetry blog if you are so inclined.

No, I’m Not Dead

Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated. You see, I had hoped to keep up with you during my week camping a couple of weeks ago by posting in the evening just before bed. However, the wireless service wouldn’t work inside the trailer and I really didn’t want to sit outside getting bit by mosquitoes. Then last week was my first on the new job and I was simply not in a posting mood. Anyway, I’m back and hope to start posting at my former rates again.

Happy 10,000th Clickaversary to Me

I don’t do this very often, but let me take a moment to toot my own horn. DITH has surpassed the 10,000 visitor mark! The first 10,000 is the most difficult right? Kind of like saving the first $1 million is the most difficult? Well, I wouldn’t know because I’m still about $998,472.15 short. Okay, now if you’ll just allow me to spew some useless facts your way, I’ll let you go about your merry way.

According to www.alexa.com, this is the 6,187,952nd most popular website and reaches about 0.000009% of global Internet users. Yes, I know, very impressive numbers. You definitely have a right to be jealous.

And now (drum roll), the 10 most popular posts of all time.  If you’ve missed any of these, you might want to check them out.
