Lincoln McCardle Before He Was Famous – Twittens

A couple of years ago a skinny, scruffy, red headed fellow stumbled across this blog. He sent me a few messages stating that he liked the blog and was thinking of starting one himself. I offered him words of encouragement and later found out that he had started I visited his site daily for some comedic relief.

We started talking on the phone and learning about each other and began to realize that our lives were, in ways, uncannily similar. We were both red headed, both married, both had one child, and we both had another child on the way. Later on, we found out that we were both having boys. I know you’re saying, that could happen to anyone, so here is the kicker. My wife and I had picked the name of what we would name our child early in the pregnancy. We picked a boys name and a girls name until we found out the sex. Interestingly enough Lincoln and his wife had picked the same name for their son that we did. Well, it’s the same other than the fact my sons name is spelled with a “K” and theirs with a “C”. Our wives had our children withing a few weeks of each other, and all was well.

After the birth of my son, my life was busy and I slowly drifted away from the blog and the friends I had made online. I still kept in touch via Facebook as much as I could. I noticed that last year Lincoln got to run while holding the Olympic Torch and he started talking about something called Twittens. He seemed to post about them more and more frequently and begin posting pictures of them.

Much to my surprise this morning after watching this video on his latest blog post that I realized he actually invented these things.

So Lincoln, I would like to congratulate you on your success so far and can only hope that it carries you even farther. And I would also like to say to you, “You’re Welcome”. If you never would have discovered this blog, you probably wouldn’t have went down the path that took you to Twittens. ;p

A Package From Georgia

CLICK it to BIG it.

CLICK it to BIG it.

I arrived home Thursday evening to the stench of body odor and gasoline, and I immediately knew that my package from Georgia had arrived.

I won a contest that Heather from Confessions of a Coal Miners Granddaughter had on her blog a few weeks ago. The premise of the contest was simple. Heather posted several questions about herself, and whoever had the correct answers would win whatever crap she decided to throw out of her house.

Me, being the uber internet stalker that I am, won. I answered all the questions correctly. I think that it stems from the fact that she too, used to be a fellow Mountaineer.

The package contained the following items:

  • A bag of Starbucks coffee.
  • A Georgia shot glass.
  • A Georgia peach keychain.
  • A postcard that read “The weather is here, wish you were beautiful.”
  • A book of more Georgia postcards.
  • The movie Deliverance.
  • The famous “Confessions of a Coal Miners Granddaughter T-Shirt“.
  • Two green grapes.
  • One blue bowl.
  • And a partridge in a pear tree.

Everything but the kitchen sink (or should I say kitchen faucets was in there). A lot more than what I expected.

Thanks for all the stuff Heather. I could have lived without all the baby vomit on the shirt though. I get enough of that here.

The Alphabet Of Bucky

Random unrelated image: A New Meaning For “Bread Tie”

I know it’s a meme, but an interesting one nonetheless. When I saw this meme at Karl’s and Avitable’s I immediately knew that I had to do it or I wouldn’t be able to hang out with the cool kids.

The ABCs of Me

Accent: I was born and raised in West Virginia so I naturally speak “hick”.

Breakfast or no breakfast: Brown Sugar & Cinnamon pop tarts just about every morning around 5:30.

Chore I don’t care for: None. I don’t mind doing chores.

Dog or Cat: Love the pussies!

Essential Electronics: Computer, phone, Wii, Guitar Hero

Favorite Cologne: Black Suede

Gold or Silver: Silver. I don’t like the look of gold, however, I like the value of it very much.

Handbag I carry most often: A paper sack with my lunch in it.

Insomnia: I used to spend many sleepless nights staring blankly at the PC or XBOX. I am happy to say that I have been sleeping nice lately. Nice being a relative term when you consider that I live with young children.

Job Title: Just another turd in the bucket. (Also a Devoted Husband, Father.) (Find a job with admin job search)

Kids: At the time of this writing, I have a 22 month old daughter. By the time this post gets published, I should have a few days old son. (The wife is bloated, irritable, and 30 lbs. heavier than she was 9 months ago. Please God, let her have that baby soon.)

Living Arrangements: West Virginia trailer trash, baby!

Most Admirable Trait: The most admirable trait for anyone is their sense of humor.

Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: Broke into the neighbors house and tipped over their furniture and hid all their curtains in a closet. Fun times.

Overnight hospital stays: Currently none for myself, but I did sleep at the hospital when my wife had her gallbladder removed, and again when our first child was born.

Phobias: A little bit of claustrophobia, especially if the room I’m in has several other people in it.

Quote: “If you have ever stopped by my house, you came on purpose, because I live on the way to nowhere.” –Bucky

Reason to smile: Loving wife and kid(s).

Siblings: None.

Time I wake up: 4:15am Mon-Fri. Weekends are wide open.

Unusual Talent or Skill: I can touch my nose with my tongue.

Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: Radishes. Blech.

Worst Habit: Fingernail biting.

X-rays: I’ve had three x-rays. Once for my neck, once for my chest, and once for my stomach / intestines.

Yummy Stuff: M&M’s, chocolate ice cream, plain Wavy Lays potato chips.

Zoo Animal I Like Most: I like monkeys, and one of the reasons I like monkeys is because they are very open with their masturbation. I have learned a couple of new techniques by watching monkeys. Monkey, monkey, monkey!
