got this whole ball of wax rollin’ september 17, 2009!! maybe the shitheads at wordpress are gonna acknowledge my longevity with a t-shirt, or a crappy coffee mug? probably not! i persevered, i stuck with it, despite it all. i hardly blog these days–much better ways to occupy my time. nevertheless, 10 years is an accomplishment that i’m proud of! peace!
Been at this WAY too fecking long folks!
But, at this moment could give a mofo rat’s ass!
… ’cause I know it’s gonna be a Lovely Day!
Got this train rockin’ and rollin’ September 17, 2009! And, it’s been full steam ahead, pedal to the metal ever since! Good or bad, or indifference… I’ve put in my time!
Ya’d think WordPress would send me a plaque or something commemorating my never-quitting stubborn persistence? Nada!
… hell yeah, motherfuckers… hell yeah!!
another prime number. motherfucklove this one!
done calculating; worked out to be a $500 weekend… almost to the penny! hate when money departs, love it arrives… c’est la vie! the fuck ya gonna do, right? ain’t as bad as it looks… frugalandwisedandidgood! plus, on an unrelated note, realized in my insomniac state last night, i’m exactly (give or take a day) two years aways from my 20,000 milestone… maybe, then i can die, lol!
wastin’ time like it was free
started this blogbitch september 17, 2009… 6 danistulytheman wordpress years strong and counting… 1650 prolific posts – if i do say so myself! another year, another milestone – time for lotsa danbackslapping… ya can’t keep a good man down! time for neglect from jealous cunts again too! i’ve always been bigger and better than ya, and i always will be!
and i only would do for you you what you do for me
My favourite month by far… blogged about it 3 years ago – July – that year was a particularly good one! Same goes for this year, July 2015 (hell they’ve all been great – ain’t judging Julys, lol)! It’s been 2 long months since my bank account sniffed a deposit, while busily pissing withdrawals. Tomorrow… the buck stops here! Begins w/a bang (fireworks?)… OhCanadaDay, followed by the 2nd, 3rd, 10th, and 16th!! That’s five fecking direct deposit paydays in half a month?! Not to mention another cool day tossed into the mix, making it an even half-dozen great days to kick off the month of all months! Lots more great/personal stuff from a lifetime ago… I still remember, and reflect! C’mon, admit it… y’all LOVE July!!
blogging milestone… black-slappin’ time bitches! danprops y’all!
… i oh, i’m still alive – yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah…
… danistrulytheman … the domain, I own the cunt! No more danistrulytheman.wordpress.com… starting today, I’m danistrulytheman.com…
… about time too, been blogging in various formats coming on 10 years… WordPress made it easy/painless … they’ve been whoring ($$) me to update for eons, lol. And, while their conversion US>CAN rate wasn’t necessarily in my favour… they used dollar increments for all charges, which I prefer, thanks guys!
… am sure you’re wondering – bottom line difference for y’all? None!! Same shit as always… read it and weep!!
Finally a run to blog home about! I’ve been having a difficult time, and I don’t know why? I’ve been running over 2 months for the 2015 season, and don’t have the distance stamina I should, and def don’t have the pace I expect. I’ve been running very slow compared to my glory days of 2013 when I set all my records. I don’t know where this came from… I’m particularly proud of my 3rd split; I was shocked when my wrist buzzed and I looked down to see a 4:12, I didn’t feel winded, or that I ran it particularly fast/hard. I certainly had plenty left in the tank, and even my final split although fast as well, I never went out and killed it. I know one day I’ll be able to finish in 8:15… and if I could run a solid 2K to start, I’ll have a great chance at PR-ing. As it was, I only missed it by just over 30 seconds. And, to show you how slow I’ve been, my previous best this year was 18:50 (which I ran twice)! Today, if nothing more is vindication…
… just thought I’d throw that milestone out there. Today’s post is really about my great day. Went early to Yorkdale – I love it now that I live minutes away. Parking lot was already packed before 10 in the morning, but this attractive older couple was leaving, and lovely lady kept pointing me towards her car. Kept smiling too … knew it was ZEN BABY, people are so positive towards it! Oh, before I continue with my shopping tales, when I left for home, I stopped at Shell for some V-Power (and 10X AirMiles). I swerved around, positioning my car in front of this absolutely gorgeous Mercedes SLS AMG (the one with the gull wing doors) …
… yeah, I know SICK!! Anyway, I jumped out and blurted out to the owner, a good-looking guy about my age as he was getting ready to leave … “kinda liked my ride?” … meaning/referring/joking that I like my car. Without missing a beat, he assertively, along with complete honesty, snaps back offering affirmation, “I like your ride” … “better than this one”. thanks dude, ZEN BABY, lol!!
Back to shopping! I went to purchase a specific item, to kinda compensate for my Banana lacking gift. I was told, this is something good. I’ve never shopped for this before, but listen to this … as I was leaving my hairdresser’s place yesterday, he showed me this very gift that a client gave as an X-mas present, lol. Weird, I woulda said before. Not so weird anymore, I say now! Oh, I also went to buy myself a coffee maker, as I no longer have one, but due to the fact that I’m not in possession of my rewards card, I knew I’d be fucked and wouldn’t be able to access MY MONEY, I quit before I devoted fruitless time, frustrating myself. I already feel fucked as it is – $160 (half of which is mine) is being controlled/manipulated, and I don’t have easy/immediate access to it. Nice! Whatevs, after this, it’s finally fucking done!
Next up, was fragrances! Funny, when I was walking out of the store into the mall, I asked a Chanel girl in the women’s department, where the men’s department was. She said, “Chanel, or in general”? In general I answered. When I got there (ok, first of all, the fucking area is gorgeous), the gentleman who helped me, who didn’t work for any particular brand, immediately steered me towards Chanel. I was sold. Listen to this, the 50 ml costs $82.50, the 100ml $107 … BUT, if you spend over $100, you get $20 off. Duh, picked up the 100ml for $87! Oh, apparently the cologne is brand new too, and when I asked for samples of any kind for men, he didn’t think he had any. But then, he came back w/ a 10ml bottle … that ain’t no fucking sample, that’s a fucking bottle, lol! I love it!! Then, I asked for samples for women, he obliged! Oh, when home, was kicking myself for not doing this earlier … went online and ordered another pair of sale priced Chuck’s from JV … I was lucky too, international free shipping that ended yesterday, didn’t. Lucky my size was still available. ZEN BABY!!
… here we go again!! referring to the lack of love again for my accomplishments. even WP took time to give me props. AND FYI, I certainly won’t bother acknowledging any johnny-come-lately-comments at this point, so please don’t bullshit bother either! I know/see who’s who, what’s what motherfuckers! pshaw!!
flying high again
flying high again
flying high again
flying high again
I can see through mountains, watch me disappear
I can even touch the sky …
Happy WordPress blogiversary to me!! Can hardly believe it myself, five fucking years of danistrulytheman!! I leave y’all w/ a song from Tool; no hidden meaning, just a GREAT song from a GREAT band, on kinda a great day … peace!!
it’s times like these you learn to live again!!
1400 – times giving and giving again – POSTS mothereffers!! Another deserving self-congratulatory-slapping-myself-on-my-back-silly milestone!! AND YES, I DO deserve it!!
I am a one way motorway
I’m the road that drives away
then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I’m a white light blinding bright
burning off and on
I am a new day rising
I’m a brand new sky
to hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
do I stay or run away
and leave it all behind
… the day I turned 50 … kinda like this one …
Not that July, or August weren’t filled with good runs – they were. Seems like in September, I kicked it up a notch, and was particularly good. I set five PRs during the month … all within a nineteen day span! Plenty chuffed with myself!
