I've been sick this week. Stuck in bed in an antibiotic haze. This gave me lots of time to peruse the internets and back issues of "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader" for ideas about what to write. BTW, if you have never picked up an "Uncle John's," do so. These books are treasure troves of stuff you never knew you wanted to know till you read about it. (Disclosure - I have no relationship with Uncle John's - I just really enjoy the books).
Jump down with me to see my fevered, random thoughts.
My pooch has an important job on Thursdays. This big truck comes to steal our garbage. He always manages to scare them away, but they always manage to grab the trash. I admire my dog's persistence.
Clint Eastwood once said "Women are superior to men. You see a lot of smart men with dumb women, but you don't see a lot of smart women with dumb guys." Heh.
Antarctica has an area code. If you need to call, it's 672.
There's this tiny little bat in Thailand called the Bumblebee Bat that may be the smallest mammal in the world. They weigh about as much as a dime and they're really cute, but rare. See more here: http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/...
Nearly half of all men have had manboobs http://men.webmd.com/...
Riddle me this, Batman. How much dirt is in a 3' by 5' by 9' deep hole?
Here's the WC/Sleepyhead Mojo Friday fine print:
Mojo Friday Guidelines
- If you comment you have to recommend all comments. (in order to receive mojo you have to give mojo. It's only good mojo manners.)
- Everything you say may be taken as a joke (so if you ask a question, expect a silly answer)
- You must recommend the diary (and pimp it unapologetically)
- You don't have to comment to recommend.
- You can't steal MK's idea (right, like that ain't goin' to happen)
- Please, no pictures or YouTubes until after 300 comments. Now, after 300, use a little common courtesy and be responsible in the number.
- Mojo mojo mojo mojo, mojo mojo mojo.
- TexDem (our benevolent sponsor) and MKinTN are not bound by the guidelines. Heh.
Mojo Friday Time Shifters Goals (watered down from Mojo Friday Goals)
A. At least 40 different commenters and 300 comments by 2:00 PM PST.
B. 50 recommends for each comment, at least.
C. Get on the Recommended List (this requires some strategic planning by you guys, refer to guideline #3)
D. At least 50 diary recommends. 100 would be better, spread the word.
E. And always, fun fun fun.
F. Have at least 75% average participation rate as seen here in the Mojo Friday Postgame Comment by Yours Truly.
G. Have at least 10 kossacks over 90% participation (see here for some tips).
H. Overload the servers with recommends, not to mention dominate Top Comments Mojo list. (we do tend to mess with the site with all of our recommends at one time)(also, to dominate the Top Comments Top Mojo we need at least 50 comments with over 200 recommends, see guideline B)
I. That's enough for now. (Have a suggestion? Post it.)
MKinTN posted a diary to help everyone achieve greater success called How to Succeed at Mojo Friday Without Really Trying.
For those of you new to MF (Mojo Friday) we have our own lingo about a few things. Thank's to MF'er Jez (the link will explain) go to this diary for a little more fun and explanation. Official Mojo Friday Snecktionary.
