Wrecking someone else’s journal
Okay, it’s been a long week. I would have had this blog article done a few days ago but the monitor on my laptop died on me. Add to that fact that work has been really busy and the outcome is that Pax can’t finish his blog articles on time. Right now I’m having to write this blog “guerilla style” while at work. Not a problem for me because, as you know, I’m a ninja, but it’s annoying nonetheless.
So I was talking with my friend Debi at work and she whips out this kick ass book she’s been working on called Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith. It has tasks for you to do on each page that involve somehow wrecking the journal. It’s pretty cool, here’s the cover.
You get to do some crazy, random things to the book like taking a shower with it, mailing it to someone, chew on a page, glue office supplies to a page and many others. I found some sample pages on Amazon.
The first page is for gluing random items. The page to the right (the tall one) is to write four letter words…haha…I would have had a few other four letter words on there. I may not have been able to print it. The last one on the bottom is for the aforementioned gluing of office supplies to the page.
It’s like an activity book for adults. Well, Debi is hip-deep into this book and she comes to a page that wants you to let random people doodle pictures. So she gives it to me to take home and also let my wife, Steph, doodle something. I didn’t get the picture of Presley that Steph doodled, but I have a picture of what I doodled. I did two drawings.
The first drawing is of a Mear (half man/half pear) acting indignant about the lack of respect he seems to attract.
I’d be pissed too if I were a pear and receiving as little respect as he does. Many people don’t realize, but the pears are the Rodney Dangerfield of the fruit world. Next time you see one, send some respect his way, it’ll make you and the Mear feel better. Good karma, people.
My next doodle involved a t-shirt design I always thought would be cool. It’s a 5.25″ floppy disk with the words “Old Skool” written on top of it.
See? I just think that would be a bad-ass shirt. I checked on Cafepress.com and found a few designs that are similar, but I think mine is the best. Debi agrees.
The next “wreck” that Debi tasked me with was a page that told her to give the journal to a friend and let them destroy the page without her looking. Debi said that while I had the book to doodle, I should destroy that page and take pictures of it so she could document the devastation. I agreed and hatched a nefarious plan to completely destroy and humiliate that page. Want to see what I came up with? Sure you do.
Here are the series of pictures I had Steph take while I was destroying Debi’s page. Enjoy the devastation.
So that’s what I’ve been up to this week. Oh, get this, the National Blood Alliance gave me a call this morning. They want me to give blood again. It’s like they don’t even care what happened to me last time I gave blood. Needless to say I’m somewhat terrified to go back. We’ll see if I feel any better about that. I also got my first round of allergy shots on Thursday and I didn’t die a horrible, twitching death. So I guess I’ll continue to get those. Maybe they’ll help with my cat and dust allergies, I would really like that.
Anywho, gotta go. Have a great weekend everyone.
