Oh dear, it's finally happened...

Well, it's finally happened and here is the Ricardiblog, name courtesy of the Wrathful person over there. Yes, I know the Blogger template is ugly, thank you for mentioning it. I'll be fixing that as soon as I can figure out how this html business works. Then it'll be even worse.

Anyway, the only point of this post is to get the whole thing started, so instead of typing something pithy and witty and enlightening, I'll just direct you over to Scary's place where he has a most excellent Tale of Mirth and Woe™ for today.

If that all worked I'll be amazed. Bye for now.

EDIT: ok, so it didn't all work. The Scary story link is now unbroken. And the colours are even worse than before.

ExAfrica said...

I'm really not worthy, but.....

FIRST!

....ever.


And welcome.

Looking forward to your blog (no pressure) Well, maybe a little.

You have set yourself up with all your witty and pithy (why do I keep mixing that up? Withy and pity?) commenting. Enlightening even.

Joy said...

First! And on a brand new blog, too! Yay!!

I'm looking forward to reading it and am glad Dawn persisted.

#Debi said...

First, evah!

MMmmmmwahahahahah! Welcome to the dark side, Ricardipus. I look forward to NOT being disappointed...

#Debi said...

Ah. Didn't realize you were moderating... Perhaps I am not, in fact, first, evah then...

Why for my whiffles don't show up as waffles yet?

Aunty Marianne said...

About bloody time.

Ivan the Terrible said...

All those good friends mentioned, and yet I'm the first one to leave a comment? I should give 'em a good flaming, if I were you...

Mind you, I found you via Aunty M, so she gets free pass for now :)

Richard said...

Ricardipus, blogging. Lordy, I seem to be the first. At last.

Richard said...

Oh, it's one of those. There are probably loads in front. How foolish.

Black Knight said...

Heh, 'Ricardipus'.

My crystal ball sees a great future for you in weblogging. And me laughing uncontrollably for some inexplicable reason.

Canadians are such nice people. But what does vdxfujqt mean?

Ricardipus said...

Oh good lord, I obviously am rather new to this game... sorry about that comments moderation thing. I think I've got it sorted out now (thanks Dawn).

Hey black knight, nice to hear from you... all the way from sunny Sydney...

Thanks all for the kind words.

Black Knight said...

I told you I was laughing uncontrollably - all those 'first!' messages :)

And if your dream (one of them) is really to visit Oz, we have a spare granny flat.

(and how many 'Richard's do we know now then?)

ExAfrica said...

I knew I wasn't worthy

Black Knight said...

@exafrica: I was about to leave a comment on your weblog, but I don't have a 'blogger' account. So I'll abuse Ricardo's hospitality and point out http://www.armynavystores.co.uk/ for example. Camping equipment, boots, clothes, compasses, knives, Maglites - all that kind of kit can be got at Army surplus stores in the UK.
