    Thanks Robin!


    So, guess which blogger received a "shoutout" from CNN's brightest, most beautiful, and most beloved anchor?... Michelle Malkin? Nope. The Daily Kos? Nope. Blackfive? Nadda. It was none other than... *clears throat* yours truly, Jake. No, I am not bragging... I am gloating in the oh-so-honorable mention. Speaking of mentioning- did I mention I received an email from the ever so gracious Robin as well? Yes I did, and let me tell ya, I about pissed my pants. Alright, I better shut up lest I sound like a certain word over at Doug's the other day.

    The quick shoutout was the talk of the schoolhouse, and I was the recipient of many a high-fives throughout the day. Robin Meade sai hello, specifically, to my buddies and I at the Special Warfare Medical Group at 0806 EST Friday July 7th, 2006 on her show, Robin and Company.

    Guess what else? You're not going to believe this, but I actually missed it. I know, I know. The one day I decide to skip my daily routine of eating breakfast at the chow hall, and enjoying Robin and Company is the one day my favorite anchor says hello to me and my friends. What is the deal with that luck? I've been loooking for a podcast or a transcript, but have had no luck on the CNN site.

    So, a special thanks to the charming Robin Meade for a small, thoughtful gesture that made quite the big splash. Muchas Gracias! Neva- I am forever grateful.

    To All: Thank you for the gestures, but I think I've misled you unintentionally to believe this was due to some merit of my own. I didn't get a shoutout for any kind of writing skills, or bc my blog is some kind of almost famous guy. A little birdie told someone.... who told someone... about my last post and how my friends and I watch her show, and well, the rest is just a matter of a couple of gracious gals. No TV exposure for the blog, I asked not to have it mentioned. So, I'm still on planet Earth, and we're still just navigating and enjoying this blogosphere with the rest of the crazies. :)

    YAY! The world makes sense again, SENSE I TELL YOU, now that you no longer have a listing for a future wife! Phew and THANK YOU!!! I can actually breathe again!! ;-)

    Ooooweee! What a pretty lady and one with brains and GOOD ones at that and friends with my dear, dear and beloved Neva? KACHING! NOW you're talking!

    Oh! I was gonna say that knowing Neva she would try to get you a copy and there she is with her beautiful heart at work again! (Can you tell I kinda like her? ;-P)

    As for you being gone? *GASP* What are we to do without our resident SB (I didn't mention what it stand for but, he, he, heee!), SF man and sweet-talking-Italian-speaking Republican? DIOS MIO! Hope it all goes well for you dear Jake and that you hurry back to the blogosphere because you will be missed!

    As for the quote below, PHEW! Nothing to complain about this time! YAY! ;-P

    Damn Jake that's pretty cool. And since your last post before this one said you'd be saying good bye until July good luck with everything. Hopefully I'll get some updates up while I'm at OSUT since I've only got 2 days left.

    OK, dude, now I get it :). Keep this up and I might have to hold my nose and acquire a TV.

    Be well and all that, look forward to hearing from you when you get back online.

    Jake - very cool. We'll miss you in the snark, but will look forward to your return. You provide a good hormonal balance :)

    I'll have to poke around your sight and read a post or two while you're gone.

    Jake,

    That's wonderful! I remember watching her when I worked in the regional office for my company and she was on every morning. A fantastic anchor.

    Take care until we see you again! :)

    MIZ B- my listing is gone, and that was an accident. i'll leave it like so and call it Providence, but i do so stubbornly.

    jon- give em hell buddy, and let me know when you get to Bragg.

    bg- it was cool beans.

    o'c- you're missing out on weekday mornings from 6-10 EST

    g- a good hormonal balance? LOL. i am the only primate in the park. when i get back i'll be sure to bring bananas for all, and throw my poo around in celebratory fashion as usual.

    joel- welcome, thanks for visiting, and at least the park will be free of my droppings for a few weeks.

    ms. laine- she is certainly my favorite. thanks for the farewell, A presto!
