Pimped Out Toilet Seat

About a week ago I submitted my blog to the "Critique My Blog" blog. HA! Now I challenge you to make a complete correct sentence that used the word "blog" more than three times. Anyway, here is the result.

"This sharp looking blog from the land of Florida is one of those fresh and witty blogs that make you stop and think for a minute. I like the writing and the overall look of the blog is very cool with the sidebar set up with arcade games from when I was little. One thing I noticed and I might have missed it or am looking in the wrong places ( I got in big trouble for this one time), but I didn't notice an archive section. I view my blogs in IE so maybe that is the reason. Aside from that I have no complaints. Stop by and say Hi and enjoy your visit at the Lazy Iguana!"

You can go to Critique My Blog, submit the URL to your blog, and it will be reviewed. It takes about a week for the critique to be done. I do not think anyone ever gets a bad review.

So what is it with the blog title? Got me. It is something that came up as a result of the greatest in depth discussion of toilet seats in the history of the internet. This discussion took place on Caiman's blog. The link is in the left sidebar.

The boat lady called me back! I was busy at my favorite bar drinking beer and eating a meatloaf sandwich, so I could not talk very long. But the lady claimed she was going to give my phone number to the other lady who is supposedly in possession of a boat she does not want. I have not spoken to the seller yet, but the spy report I got indicated it is similar to a Wellcraft Coastal 250. The Coastal 250 is 25 feet long, and has a beam of 8.5 feet - the largest beam allowed for a trailer boat without needing a "wide load" sign and escorts. From what I can gather, the boat has a full transom with twin outboards on a gill bracket. It also has a walk around cuddy cabin. Having a full transom is cool because the boat is not as prone to take on water over the transom. The current boat has a cut out transom with the outboard bolted directly to it.

Honestly, I have concerns over such a boat. It is a little too large for my V6 truck to deal with. At the least I would need to add a heavy duty transmission cooler and maybe even an engine oil cooler. I have access to a Dodge Durango 4x4 that I could use to pull the thing however.

The biggest deal is the cost to operate such a beast. Twin outboards = a lot of gas.

The Lazy,

I love meatloaf sandwiches.

Sounds like the guy likes your blog, I'm going to avoid that service because I'm not good with people evaluating me.

This is just my opinion, I think you'll hate a boat that big on a trailer. When I had a big boat I kept it in the water so that the barnacles had something to eat.

Mystery Swamp Thing - I would rather deal with a trailer boat than one that has to stay in the water. Plus, wet slips cost money. Trailers are free. A dry slip is an option - but they are kind of expensive too.

The boat turned out to be a dud anyway.

The boat was not too big. It was a really nice boat at one point. Like 20 years ago.

The boat is a center console open fisherman design, and has A LOT of open deck space.

I like taking out my 120 footer that runs solely on methane.

It's just hard to get the cows on board.

I'm with Swamp Thing. I refuse to read any reviews of my book, good or bad. The good ones would make me happy, but one bad one would negate every good one that I'd ever read and then I'd be sulking and impossible to live with for a month.

CM - critique my blog seems to never give a "bad" blog review. At lest not that I can tell. I did not read all the reviews, but none of the ones I did read were bad. And even so - if the guy did not like my site then too bad for him. Nobody ever said he had to come back.

Emma - a 120 footer that runs on cow farts huh? Sounds promising. It must take a lot of cows.

Maybe if you convert it to a sail boat, point the cow's rear ends at the sails, attach a pilot light to the cows, the mini-explosions that result will create a wind that will push that sailboat at 100% of hull speed.

Very bad news indeed.
