the joys of modern living

Here is a picture of me holding up several Youngblood comic books.


This information is incredibly boring unless I tell the slightly less-boring story of how I got them.

Surely you sometimes delve into the incredibly humorous My Religious Blog. Well -- Matsby, the guy who does it, hosted a cold cereal party this last Saturday. If you check the link in the previous sentence you'll see that one of the prizes at this party was this Youngblood collection that I'm now holding in the above picture. I only knew about the little get-together because I follow the guy on Twitter. Doing nothing else, I dragged Joe and his new iPhone (which told us how to get there (see the previous post for the harsh reality of this fact)) over there and won some free Rob Liefeld comics (even though Matsby said that Liefeld is an atrocious artist).

The point is, I got free stuff by going to a party thrown by a guy I don't really know at all and it was only slightly weird since the other people there were pretty much his married friends.

Story #2:

First a little summary backstory.

Once upon a time, I won a hat.

Then I lost the hat.

After that, I got onto Twitter, and whined about how I lost it. Lo and behold, the company that I won the hat from actually heard my whines and messaged me that they wanted to send me ANOTHER podgineer hat. How nuts is that? They must have done a Twitter search for their own handle names and came across me complaining.

Anyway, the moral is: get on Twitter and follow me!

Would you mind whining a little more so that I can get a hat too?

This reminds me of the time when I blogged about how much I hated that book "Christmas Jars" by Jason Wright and then Jason Wright found my post somehow and decided to comment on my blog about how he so much appreciated my criticism of his writing. This of course happened before I made my blog private...I privatized shortly after this incident. I get a bit creeped out at the thought of strangers reading about my life...but I guess I'm missing out on things like free hats and stuff by choosing to be creeped out. Jon, I'm glad you got your hat back.
