Very rarely on the blog do we do something fun for the sake of living. Day in and day out it may appear that we are consumed with our jobs, or games, or real life events, and one of the the little pieces that we miss in life is just having fun.
To bring some of that element back, while retaining my own sanity, I am going to start a new tradition where the week after Thanksgiving is called “Unofficial Screw You Week”.
How does it work? It’s simple. Is there a person or some website that pisses you off? Maybe a co-worker that you wish you could just knee in the groin because they are so annoying? Maybe you have a blog and you wish you could just disappear but you know you can’t because you depend on it for money, or whatever?
During this week, I am giving you permission to just vent. Maybe you got the guts to send an email to your best friend and tell them to stop hitting on your sister because it makes you sick. Maybe there is a youtube user on your list you gladly want to say “Screw off mate”.
Of course in reality, we know that if you were bold enough to do any of this for real, the consequences could be dire. If you were to do any of these tasks, we want to hear about it and your story and what you did.
You have one week to basically tell someone to screw off, and if you did it, we want to hear how it made you feel.
If you are unable to do it for personal reasons, you are more than welcomed to leave a comment and tell us here how it would make you feel if you could tell that one person how great it would be if you told them off in their face!
The event starts on Sunday, November 29th through end of day Saturday, December 5th. On Sunday December 6th, I will post a thread for you guys to tell us what you did in the “Screw You” week, or a summary of what users have done. If you are ashamed to post your story here, you can email it to me at versatileninja [at yahoo [dot] com and I will summarize it while keeping you anonymous.
Am I going to participate? Oh hell yes. Don’t I care its going to hurt my image? Not anymore. I have been through hell and back, and I am willing to tell someone off (in an appropriate manner of course). Let the screwing begin! (ah you sickos!)
December will be known as “Redemption Month”. What does that mean? This means I will do what I can to redeem myself (and perhaps the other authors as well), but posting articles that I meant to post in weeks past.
V1 or V2 hasn’t been getting much love lately, and that is partly my fault. Hence, the goal is if I can get at least 5 substantial articles out, then I will have “redeemed” myself. Sure, it won’t make up for lost time, but the truth of the matter is its not the quantity of posts, but its the content of the posts that matter.
At the end of the month, I will total up how many articles each author has written for the month of December, and I will post that article count online for the rest of the world to judge. Hence, redemption awaits at the end of the month. ;0
