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. 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:


A Picture

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, 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 (

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.

ACK, I would love to, PG, but I am currently in the lounge at the airport in Bangkok awaiting my flight to HK! :\

Maybe when I return, if I make it in time!

BEST.PROJECT.EVER! Thanks for giving us some Gyllenfun to do while you are with Paul McCartney! I am so jealous!!! But in a good way... Way to go, woman! >;-)

Can't wait to hear more about THE BOOK. I am the most impatient person I know, so this waiting game is hard, aaarrrggghhh.

Blingees are fun, everyone's are so cute! Just now got my laptop back from the geeksquad, so I will be working on one later!

AHHHHH THESE ARE SO GREAT!! I am laughing hysterically and I love each and every one of you. Keep them coming!!! I'm going to put up a massive post on Friday with all of them and think it's safe to say that it's going to blow all other Jake posts ever out of the water. A-MA-ZING.

I FINALLY MADE ONE! It's not as awesomely epic as everyone else's but it's entertaining. Check it out! If that one doesn't work, here's the other link:

Jaeda,  July 28, 2010 at 4:46 PM  

Ok, I did one more!

Irene & Laia,  July 28, 2010 at 6:06 PM  

here's our work of art, "Gangsta Jake"

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it

Becky Heineke July 28, 2010 at 6:45 PM  

Jaeda, did you post the link for your second one here???

Miffed67 July 28, 2010 at 9:42 PM  

Oh God, I can't TELL YOU HOW JEALOUS I AM! I'm DYING to see Paul! I hear he's fantastic in concert...I've only ever seen the DVD and as awe-inspiring as it was, I can't even imagine what being in the presence would be like! (plus Heather Mills was in the one I watched, so bleh on that!)

Becky Heineke July 28, 2010 at 10:10 PM  

Miffed, there are NO WORDS. Every time I've seen him, I just can't get over how lucky I am to be alive at a time when I get to see him in person. Nothing and no one could ever come close to touching him.

(My overly-long, overly-melodramatic-because-it-really-was-like-a-religious-experience blog entry about the concert is here if you have an hour or so free and are in need of something to read. :D)

Gavin,  July 29, 2010 at 11:45 AM  

Here is my attempt lol!!

Jaeda,  July 29, 2010 at 2:10 PM  

Oh great! I forgot to post the link and now it's gone forever. :( lol I guess that's what I get for staring too long at Jake pics! lol

Jaeda,  July 29, 2010 at 2:10 PM  

Found it!

Becky Heineke July 29, 2010 at 8:02 PM  

^^^ Got it! :) Thank you...and thanks to everyone else, too!!
