It takes me an extra 8.3 seconds every night to decide whether I want to awake to “vibe dot”, “vibe dash”, “vibe dot dot”, “vibe dot dash”, or “vibe pulse”. Vibe pulse is just a little over the top, so I’ve been setting my alarm to vibe dot dot. Dot dash is a nice change once in a while too; rather like getting a secret message in morse code! Vibe dot is simple and mellow. But I never use vibe dash; it just grates on one’s nerves. Choices, choices!
Necesito su ayuda, por favor. Pronto. October 27, 2008
All of you out there in Internet land, sitting in your ivory towers, I need your help.
Back when I was a young, naive, impressionable freshman, I joined a certain pink girly ministry whose mascots are a pair of ridiculously cute but completely unpottytrainable puppies. This certain group uses college students to mentor elementary, middle, and high school age girls. If you’ve been a reader for very long, you’ll be interested to know that the director of said ministry is Bloggy Mommy herself.
Here’s the sitch: the ministry has been given a once-in-a-lifetime offer to earn money by having people download a search engine through Microsoft. If we meet our goal number of downloads, we will receive a super big donation.
Here are the ABC’s of how to TOTALLY MAKE MY DAY AND QUITE POSSIBLY MY WEEK AND/OR LIFE:
Add this link to your address bar (using Internet Explorer) : http://www.getsearchperks.com?for
Be sure to follow all the steps until you come to a page that says “Congratulations! You’re finished.” Or something like that.
Comment on here to let me know that you’ve done it.
Delete it, if you want, and forget it ever happened. Then do yourself a favor and buy yourself a latte. Or a spa certificate. Or a car. You deserve it, you good person, you.
If you don’t use Internet Explorer because you’re lame or have a Mac, I’m not sure if we can be friends. But complete strangers who very guardedly communicate via the world wide web? That’s always an option.
The perfect game to not buy your kids for Christmas… October 15, 2008
A few evenings ago I played a thrilling board game called “Revelations” with some friends, SR and Pookie. The game was $3 at a discount warehouse, so we weren’t expecting much to begin with. The object of the game is to get to heaven by having a Jesus card at the end of the game. Upon reaching heaven you get a card with a golden crown on it. Once you get a Jesus card, you have to hold on tight to it because if you land on a space like “liar” or “fornication“ or “murder” and you don’t have a repent card, you lose Jesus. And if you land on one of those spaces and don’t have a repent OR a Jesus card, you have to go to longsuffering and miss two turns.
A major flaw in the game is the fact that sometimes you are faced with a difficult choice: move forward four spaces and land on Envy, or slip back two but land on Meekness? Of course you would be tempted to move forward rather than get further behind your opponents, especially if you have a repent card to spare.
An even bigger flaw in the game is that while it is designed for up to four players, there are only TWO golden crowns. Therefore, only two people can go to heaven. Guess who kept landing on the Witchcraft space and ultimately wound up in Hell whilst Pookie and SR, safe behind the pearly gates, looked on and laughed callously? Sure makes one reevaluate one’s friendships. And breathe a sigh of relief that eternity isn’t really so iffy.
