My internet was down for most of Sunday, which delayed Pocketblog by a day.
The talented Mr. Weatherman brought this site to my attention on Google+. As I do with things that are new and shiny, I signed up for it and was instantly greeted with a blank template instructing me to begin writing. I passed out before I finished the words but it was actually pretty cool. At first glance it seems like just a little diary-style shindig, but delving into it reveals that the developer of the site has actually put together a really neat project wrapped in a very basic shell. It grades word count, awards points, and even puts together an extremely impressive breakdown of stats. Here's mine for today. I can't say that it is extremely accurate on some of it (for example, being in the warm arms of Jack Daniel's during the writing, I can confirm that I was most definitely NOT "Upset", at least not until the very end. On the other hand, I'm not sure what I was), but other parts of it are frighteningly on point, and I would love to see what algorithm this guy uses to calculate the stats. For private journaling, it's pretty cool. There is a one month challenge I can take on for October, and if I miss one day in October and/or write less than 750 words in a day, my name goes onto the Wall of Shame until I can get a perfect run for the next month. Do I dare accept? I don't know yet how busy I will be so...I don't know. What I do know is that this site is really awesome and you should give it a shot.
I'm ready to accept my fate as a single man for the rest of my life. As soon as we are both available to do so, my roommate and I are going to add neon green racing stripes to my car. It's a little known fact that this car is already a metallic pinkish-purple ("raspberry", as the desperate car salesman described it). It also has bullet hole stickers on the back, and I really want to throw on a magnetic mustache, which we totally sell at Hastings. This is a '96 Cavalier, and if I ever have sex inside this car after these new changes, I fully expect the universe to just straight-up fucking kill itself.
The Great Beard-Off!!
I hope everyone is ready for this. I'm going to update the original post for the Beard-Off when the time comes. Remember, everything must be shaved on October 1, and then grown out for as long as you can. Shave whenever you want, but remember that it means you're dropping out of the Beard-Off. I can't remember if alcohol was involved when we thought of this, but it certainly will be in the future. Either way, there's going to be serious beardage in this place.
