April Fools!

P.S. I am very bored right now so that's why I started this.

Tell everyone that you have some deep, dark secret and make up the most off-the-wall story, the more disturbing the better. Other fun things include going into the bosses computer and making Microsoft Word automatically change all "the's" to "ass" or "poop". I do that even when it isn't April 1st! If you really want to prank someone, you can "upper deck" the toilet

I wasn't even going to attempt it. I'll let MERTON try to figure it out on his own.

Ya know that doo-hickie hose thing, right next to the kitchen faucet, that you pull out?? Well, I like to put a rubber band around it tight enough so that when some twit turns on the kitchen faucet, they get blasted w/ cold water.

Also, ya know the thing in the tub faucet that you have to pull to get the water to come out of the shower head? Leave that pulled UP so some twit can get a head full of cold water.

I don't exactly remember, but it had something to do with a super-secret moderator forum and the forum was being to sold.

No prank ideas, but I am going veggie for the month (at least). Just figured that it would be good for me to at least try, and who knows...I might stick with it.

I have one I've been kicking around for a while. I found some random person's webshots site that hs a picture of a horrific accident between a car (exactly the same as mine) and a donkey. The car is trashed.

I've been thinking about sending it to my mother or some other family member and telling them some horrible story about me being in an accident with a donkey. I just don't have the heart ot do it to my own mother though, she would honestly flip out.
