Happy Groundhog Day, everybody. Every year, I feel sorry for the groundhog - they wake him up early enough to make the morning news, drag him out of his warm little house, and wave him around at a bunch of not-very-excited onlookers. Personally, I've had enough of winter - and that was before the last week of sub-20 degree days.
Anyway, I want to thank all the people that have participated so far in the OD Booster Club - OD has been promoted in a bunch of fun places, including apartment building walls, workplace bulletin boards, and porta-potty doors. Thanks to all of these folks:
the world is getting to know OD better. If you haven't read about the Booster Club yet, please jump over to the page (link above) and check it out - the whole point is to let the world know about our happy home here. And remember, you can win a free one-year OD Plus subscription for you or a friend if you come up with this month's best Booster idea.
I also wanted to add, I am bringing back the Open Diary Merchandise store - powered by CafePress, and filled with OD t-shirts, mugs, baby gear, and other knick-knacks (much of it bearing the fun Booster Club slogans we've been using for the signs and leaflets). I'm still prettying it up some, but feel free to have a look (and pick up some stuff. I've priced everything pretty much as low as possible - we shan't be making any money off of it, but it's another fun way to get the OD name out there).
I often wonder if my fatuous and silly use of parentheses and punctuation makes well-grammared people want to vomit at my entries.
Speaking of silly and vomit, had Monty Python's Meaning of Life on this morning as I was working - I do think that the last time I watched it all the way through was in college following some mind-altering beverages, and I remember being heartily disturbed then by the scene called "The Middle of the Film" which features an elephant-headed butler and Graham Chapman in scary drag (as opposed to nice drag). If you've never seen it, watching with your brain at half-mast is not recommended.
Proof that Wikipedia knows all: Meaning of Life.
Have a good day!
