Come to the Cool Kids Lunch Table

16 Jan

Look: I made buttons. They’re over there on the right. Remember how last time I said something about how if I was a nice person I might put all this motivational nonsense into one convenient location so that I can use my posts to talk about my unwillingness to do laundry in a timely fashion and my discomfort with everyday life situations and keep all my other stuff where I try to be a moderately better person over there in faraway land? Well there they are. Over there in faraway land. 

Now I need to put some things there and I want you to be the things. For now those fancy homemade buttons I fashioned with my own paint program and a google search lead curious ducklings to a previous post I’ve written regarding Lollipop Tuesdays, The Gaunlet, and 365 Projects. In an ideal world where my blog is cosmically awesome and you’re all supportive, those links will change to pages that instruct you how to start a challenge and links to people who have completed them and lived to tell the tale. So If you’ve successfully completed a 30 Day Challenge, a 365 Project, or a Lollipop Tuesday, and have documented the experience in any way, I’d like to tell people that you’re cool.

You, yes you could put yourself through a serious challenge of discomfort in social situations, a dedication to completing one daily task that you struggle with, or to repeating the same small achievement every day for 365 days. And in return, I will grant you a link on my website, which statistics have shown could perhaps have some sort of percentage of my readership click on if they are absolutely without anything else in the world to do at the time.

So there we go: I’m made little image linky things over there on the right for you. And kind of for me. Mostly for me. But a little more for you, and I think that’s worth something.

And I had my dad draw my cats for you.

Aren’t they precious? I love them so. Lola is the frazzled one and Hobbes is the one who is grumpy because his cake is gone. They’re very accurate. I’ve begun to harass my artist father to doodle things so I can steal the doodles and design my blog after them. That’s right: change is coming. Lots of uncomfortable change. 

See? I have new buttons and I’ve gifted you cartoon cats. Join my page of cool people and let me link to you.

Seriously, if you’ve completed a 365 Project of any kind, successfully completed a 30 Day Challenge, or tried a genuine Lollipop Tuesday and have written, virtual proof of it, I’d love to invite you to the cool kids lunch table. I was never really invited myself, so I thought I’d start my own and invite everyone.

Read about the things on the buttons, do the things the buttons say, get added to the buttons. For those of you who want to be added, hit me in the face with a link. For those who’ve thought about starting a challenge, may the half-promise of perhaps-fame embolden you.

Do it for cake-starved Hobbes.

    I want to sit at the cool dkids table…I have never been one of the cool kids before!

    Except that I haven’t finished my challenge…but can I play in June when I have?

    In the meantime I might add in an extra 30 day challenge just to get to play sooner!

      yes, yes, yes I’m totally putting you on there in June because you’re amazeballs. 🙂

    Your Dad is very talented. I like his work. I use to know cats like those. I called them “Fat Cat” and “Not So Fat Cat” (no offence intended to Hobbes and Lola). Hopefully I can accomplish some feat so I can be one of the cool kids and be on a button made by Jackie.

      Thanks! And no offense taken – Hobbes is well-aware that he is pre-diabetic.

      Accomplish a feat! It would help if I would finish those buttons and actually put “how-to” pages by them. It would be great if I could take a day off real work and do fun work 😉

    The half promise of perhaps fame is emboldening me to think about possible ways I could suck less in 2014, thereby earning the right to grovel at the feet of those at the cool kids table and snag the crumbs that fall from their awesome lips. Possibly, Jackie. Possibly.

    Your dad is super talented – wish I could draw like that.

      I’ll get you, Peg. I will. 😉

      Isn’t he pretty great? And these are just silly doodles to him. I love them.

    Love the inky guys. (Slipping quietly up to the cool kids table….the view is so different here…)

      glad you like them! *offers a lunchable cracker/ham/cheese stack as a trade for fruit snacks*

    I like the drawing. Also (strange!), we have a cat named Lola. Happy writing in 2014!


    • Jackie January 25, 2014 at 11:12 pm #

      there are so many lola animals around, I’m finding. I feel so unoriginal. I shall change her name immediately to “Ham.”

    You’re welcome to link to my near miss gauntlet if you like 🙂


    • Jackie January 25, 2014 at 11:12 pm #

      thanks 😀 I should probably come up with some sort of rule system for who gets posted or something. hmmmm.

      Also, thanks again for having participated in that. I really thought it was great!
