Little Bit of This and That

I'm going to start with a graph that struck me odd.
I was looking over recent blog statistics, saw this and had to wonder WTF would have caused such a random spike.


The only other amusing thing that I saw while looking through my dashboard was that I had two searches that reached my website which intrigued me.  Well, one search but done two times.
Glass Splashed Ass.  I think that is awesome and am thus tagging it in this post!

While getting finger printed at the casino the other day to activate my bio-metrics I was told that it would probably be advisable if I were to never commit a crime.  After pausing for a second and then using the phrase "oh, do tell" I was informed that I have really great finger prints. When I asked her what she meant she told me that they were very clear and easily identifiable.  I let her know my other job gives me access to good acid and thanked her for the information.

Yesterday I received the first good news from my whole car situation.  My insurance company got back in touch with me and told me that they would be reimbursing me for $xx.xx amount of what I had to put on my credit card (after deductible of course).  That lets me breathe a sigh of relief.  They will be sending the company a letter asking to get their money back and I've got a few other things I am working on in order to try to get them to cough up the difference that is owed.  So, I'm hoping to continue the positive news rolling on that front.

I now find myself awake and with the rest of the weekend off.  I have one mothers day present bought and one to go.  The 2nd one is much harder than the 1st was because the 1st was handed to me on a sliver platter by a friend saying "I've been wanting to buy xxx however I have been unable to find it anywhere I go."  Thanks imaginary friend #1.   So, now it's down to the other one and I sit here mostly clueless as to what I should get.

Which brings me to next month which is, of course.... a 3 pay month.  Sweet baby-jesus (pronounced Hey Suess) dipped in chocolate I love 3 pay months!  Also I guess Fathers day AND Birthday.
So, funny shit is he reads this blog and will now know that for the past 3 months I have had his present hidden away in my closet just waiting for the day/month to roll around.  Boo-Ya!

And now I'm going to find grub.  My belly rumbles and must be fed immediately.

  1. I had a pretty big spike in hits around the 7th to the 10th and thought it was do to tit-searchers finding that one pic I posted in the "Big Bust" post. But I wonder if there was a glitch in Google's reporting of pageviews?

    1. I don't want to think there was a glitch, I'd rather think that I wrote something so profoundly great that lots of people really wanted to read it - their minds got erased and now they are searching for me again.

      Like that trick in Men In Black.

  2. Great news about your car. You are lucky they covered it. Years ago my pup ate the front bumper off my brand new car. My car insurance would not cover. Fortunately my homeowners did otherwise the old lady was gettin a pair of fur covered Uggs for Xmas.

    1. Yeah - it was just kind of pure luck really. I didn't think the Insurance would cover anything but I reported the incident as a "just in case" and I was quite surprised that I received the phone call yesterday.

      In fact, even more surprised because they called me a few days back telling me they were finally sending someone to take pics of the car and informing me I could let the shop know that they could start working on it - This was AFTER I already had my car back for 4 days lol.

    2. So will they pay for the car even tho it was fixed before they got to take pictures of it?

      Great news about the car.

      Dare I ask what insurance company or would you care to keep that off-line?

    3. Met

      I found that Kind of weird as well Rob - maybe the station had already taken pics of it and they were able to use their pics, I don't know. Either way I'm happy that (if I can't recoup through the company) I've recovered a good chunk of the expense

  4. Dammit!!! You got me all excited with all that talk about nextg month being a 3-pay month. Then I discovered we apparently get paid a week apart, so my next 3-pay month is August.

    1. Well, sucks to be you :)
      I get paid this coming Friday and then June 1st - you are unfortunate dear sir.
      I think everyone should just get paid weekly, that would be easier.
