 The Imagination Prompt Generator (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Imagination Prompt Generator:
Name three things you are grateful for.

1. Despite living on various military bases, I am thankful that my childhood was pretty much stable. My parents never had any nasty arguments or anything like that. I feel that I am extremely lucky in this area.

2. My closest friend. Even though I have found some old friends through the net, I found that we've changed way too much and I haven't kept in contact with a single one after finding them! My closest friend knows a lot about me that no one else does and I just don't see this friendship ending in any possible way except 'drifting apart' but we chat way too much for that to happen.

3. And of course, the obligatory food mentioning. French Fries. Whoever was the very first person to stare at a potato and said, "They should be cut into little sticks. I bet they'd taste good with some ketchup!" deserves a big gift basket.

 Writing Prompt (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
A Writing Prompt from Writer's Digest:
Forrest Gump once said, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get." What is writing like? Write a simile that starts with the phrase, "Writing is like ... ."

Writing is like having a thousand muses as friends. They're either telling you tons of story ideas at once and nothing fits or they're too busy arguing amongst themselves leaving you staring at a blank page...

 He was my best friend but... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
"Write about a situation where your best friend was dishonest or outright lied to you. Did it change your friendship?"

Oo, I like this topic here. If I roll my mind allll the way back to childhood, I had a best friend while living at this one place. We were the closest of friends when compared to anyone else. I thought he would never lie to me or anything. While he was looking through my baseball card collection, I told him that he could help himself to any duplicates he finds. I was playing a video game while he was looking through my cards.

Later, I found out through a friend that he had come through, boasting about taking all of my best cards. I confronted him and he didn't deny it! What made it even worse was that he refused to give the cards back. Needless to say, I no longer trusted him even though he acted like we were still friends. It wasn't long after that I had a different best friend.

Ha! Kids. image

 What is your favorite kind of weather? Why? (Permalink)
These kind of days usually happen on Saturday as if on cue. It's a grey day. The entire sky is just one hue of grey. No rain and no mugginess. It's very cool if not cold and there's a constant slow breeze.

This is my favorite kind of weather on any day. I don't know why I like it. It usually reminds me of yardsales when my parents used to head out every weekend.

 Every choice creates a new parallel universe... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
I was chatting with a friend and the topic came up where there was a theory that every choice you make will create a parallel universe where you made the other choice instead. This would mean there are vast amounts of universes where there are so many possibilities. It would explain dopplegangers where two lines would overlap momentarily or whatever else... I don't know. On and on and all that gibberish.

It's just hard to believe that every choice would create a parallel universe. If someone held out a blue ball and a green ball, I'd always go for the blue ball. No doubt about it. There is no way that a parallel universe would stem out to where I chose the green ball instead.

I imagine something like that would only happen if you were faced with a decision where you could go either way but you're stuck on the fence and you're struggling. "What do I do? What do I do??" ... and bam, parallel universe where you went the other way.

I guess it makes me wonder about things that I've chosen to do or didn't choose to do and what resulted from them... Was it better? Or did it get worse? I could use one of those nifty mirrors where I could ask, "What if I......"

 Brain Age 2 - Your brain age is 75?! (Permalink)
Topic: Gaming
I got Brain Age 2 for Christmas last year. I used it regularly for about two weeks and then used it off and on over periods of months. I chatted with a friend today about Brain Age so I decided to pop the game in. Turns out the last time I had it in my DS was in September. I gave it a whirl for today...
Ack! Your brain is so tired!

Whaaaat? My brain ain- You kidding me?? ... Well, it turns out that the game really was kidding.

Oops... I made an error! Heh heh!

And my real brain age isssss....

This is a call for help! Take me seriously, dude.

My brain age is 46! Apparently my poor brain needs more stimulation. Time to hit SUDOKU. image

1. Pyramids
2. Stonehenge
3. Machu Picchu

Hawaii seems bleh in comparison but I suppose it's been so common that I should at least list it as a place to visit myself one day. hehe.

 Selling a 99¢ ring for $50! (Permalink)
One of the things that surprises me on Ebay is that a good story can make a piece of junk be sold for a lot of money. Most of them are about genies and djinns that are trapped in little junk like earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, bottles, chests, coins, etc.

Usual Formula:
BLUE GEM Start off with a personal story of how you got the object - It must be awesome. Someone stopped you and pushed it into your hands or someone died and your name was in their will for some odd reason, etc.

BLUE GEM Explain how you did research and found the name of the Genie/Djinn and make a huge story of what they were responsible for. Keep reiterating that their story is lost to the dust of time so no matter what your bidders do, they'll never find the information no matter how hard they search.

BLUE GEM Take pictures of said objects with a decorative surrounding. Some good examples: lay it on a big crystal cluster, dangle it off the handle of a sword, etc... Warp the images with a paint program. Make it glow, add wisps and smoke. Be creative!

BLUE GEM Decorate the ebay lot with lots of flashy backgrounds and images. You want to distract the bidders from reading the endless text because somewhere in there, you have to make the claim that this is purely for 'entertainment purposes' without ruining the overall mysteriousness that you're trying to create over the object.

BLUE GEM Don't forget to say that the Djinn/Genie is guaranteed to grant all wishes! Keep saying it every three lines or so.

And that should turn your 99¢ junk into $50 profits.

 A Page from Gem's Book: Love Potion (Permalink)
Topic: Spells & Potions
(I'm having a bout of creativity at the moment. I'm not sure if I'd make another one in the future but I had fun writing this one up in a jiffy.)

Naturally, you need ingredients that are disgusting and foul in order to have an opposite reaction after you or your subject drinks it. You know how in dreams, if your arms and legs get cut off and you get blinded by forks, It means a great windfall of cash is coming your way? No? Well, hey...

I will start with one of the most sought after universal emotions. Love.

LOVE POTION

BLUE GEM DRAGON TONGUE
GREEN GEM Must be fresh as possible! Still coated with original saliva of said dragon.
BLUE GEM TROLL SPIT
GREEN GEM Approach only when they're sleeping. Four cups of this will do!
BLUE GEM MERMAID HAIR
GREEN GEM Grab a good chunk out of her head. A strand will not do.
BLUE GEM CENTAUR TAIL
GREEN GEM Remove bones first.
BLUE GEM SATYR HORN
GREEN GEM Get 'im really drunk and cut one off. Ground it to a powder form.
BLUE GEM GNOME TEARS
GREEN GEM Say something bad about their mothers or step on their favorite mushrooms. Both are quite effective methods to get tears seeing as how you'll need four cups of these.
BLUE GEM DJINN TOOTH
GREEN GEM If you somehow survive this, make a wish on the tooth first to prevent Djinn from seeking revenge. Ground tooth to powder form.

Get a good fire going.

In one bowl, mix Gnome Tears with Satyr Horn. Set aside.

In separate bowl, mix Troll Spit with Djinn Tooth. Set aside.

Pour Tear/Horn mixture in pot and bring to boil. Add Mermaid Hair. Boil five more minutes and set pot aside to cool.

In another pot, pour in Spit/Tooth mix and bring to boil. Add Centaur Tail. Boil five more minutes.

While boiling Spit/Tooth mix, pour Tear/Horn mixture into one tall neck bottle. When done with Spit/Tooth mix, pour into same tall neck bottle while hot!

IMPORTANT! Add Dragon Tongue but cork bottle fast! Reaction to tongue will be quick and explosive. You must cork the bottle and keep it in place for dear life!

If successful in containing the explosive reaction, wait until the potion turns bright red. If potion turns orange, it has failed and must be disposed of. Average waiting time for one love potion is approximately three weeks. If mixed under full moon, waiting time is reduced to five days.
