Sometimes You Need to Get Creative

So, I was playing guitar this afternoon and I needed a capo. One peek in the office scared me. O_o I really didn't want to mess with all of Dad's stuff so I decided to make do with what I could find in my room. Enter: Rubber Band and Popsicle Stick!!!

I placed the Popsicle stack against the fret-board and wrapped the rubber band around the back of the neck and secured it to both ends of the popsicle stick.

Well, it served its purpose for the time being. I probably wouldn't suggest it to someone else unless they were desperate for a capo like I was. Even then, sometimes it's just better to convert the chords. The sound was twangy but I like the overall look. It amuses me!! :)

Do You Really Wanna Know?

For those times when someone asks, "Do you really wanna know?" and immediately after: "How bad do you wanna know?", There is now a scale of 1-10!!  Me and one of my friends were goofing off when we came up with this yesterday:

1. "If you tell me, I will punch you in the face."
2. I really don't wanna know.
3. I don't wanna know.
4. I don't really care if I know.
5. Indifferent.
6. I'd prefer to know but I'm fine otherwise.
7. I'm pretty sure I want to know.
8. I want to know.
9. I really want to know!
10. I am dying to know!!!

Yeah, it was pretty funny!!! How badly do you want to know? :)

Sorry, for my absence! I'll try to get on more often. (sometimes its hard to think of what to write though!!) Check out my my mail blog to see the fun things I've been sending out lately! (I'm a lot more active on that blog... but then again, I'm never at a loss for a topic when I'm over there either...)
