Prophecy Girl, who has decided to write about herself in the third person today, is off for the next 24 hours to see the celebrity boyfriend she missed by a mere generation: Paul McCartney. More on PG's fascination with the Fab Four and how it rather directly led to this very website can be found in the book she's going to start asking you all to buy very soon. (Are you listening, design team who has not yet called me? Because I swear to God I'm showing up at your offices again if I don't hear something soon.) (Note to readers: The publishing company in question was visibly stunned when I showed up at their offices the first time, but I'm sort of insane and do what I need to do to get things done.)
So anyway, I'll be back tomorrow afternoon, and there will be a post then, so we won't even lose a day, but in the meantime, I HAVE A PROJECT.
Blingee.com is the greatest website in the history of the earth, because it is a website where ordinary people like you and me can take a picture like this:
AND TURN IT INTO THIS:
Are you impressed? You should be.
What I propose is that everyone make a Blingee, the crazier the better, and then sometime later this week, I will post them all in one fantastic post that will be amazing. You don't have to sign up with the website or anything. You just have to go to www.blingee.com, upload the picture of your choice (or choose one below), and then start clicking on glittery thingies. When you get to the end of the process, you will be given a URL for your Blingee, which you can post in the comments or e-mail to me (email@example.com).
If no one participates, well, I will know in the future not to attempt communal art projects.
But if you do want to participate, then here are some pictures to get you started (feel free to use anything you want; the only rule is that it has to be a picture of Jake!):
I'm telling you, there is so much potential for greatness and animated glitter here. GO WILD. And peace out.
