A Bit Off my Game
Photo-A-Day #1343

Some days don’t you feel like you’re just off your game? You can tell that this photo was something I took when off my game. I was eating dinner at D’Angelo and wanted to take a photo of the fact that I was there, there was a Christmas tree and also the mirror. Not the most compelling photo. It is raining and I think this feeling of being off happens a lot when it’s raining. It’s been raining pretty good here and I just feel off. Allison and Eva’s flight has been delayed so they’re not coming in until an hour later. Today I worked from home and when you work from home you can see everything that’s happening outside. When I’m at the office I have no concept of what is going on outside with the weather. But when I’m home I have to run things outside and I sit right by a window so I can see how dreary it is out there.

Today however was pretty productive. After work I took care of the rest of things that needed to be put away. I also noticed that there are many people who have revealed things in BenSpark’s Big Box of Awesome! I have no idea how anyone’s getting in to see this box. I did however find a few more things that I’m going to put into the box. Keep checking on the web and following me on Twitter to see what else is in BenSpark’s Big Box of Awesome! These folks found things.

Kat of Tough Girl Kat – dug around in BenSpark’s Big Box of Awesome and found a Retractable Modem Cord.

Magical Trevor of Nerdvana says Look what I’ve found!!! Apparently he snuck a peek inside BenSpark’s Big Box of Awesome and found some Hard Rock Cafe Key Covers.

Lenny of my Secret Project is playing Dress up with the funky Tie that he found in The “Big Box of Awesome” from Benspark

Pete of My GPS CameraPhone is urging his readers to snuggle up by the DVD fire because that is a prize they can get if they Win a Big Box of Awesome from BenSpark!

Mo of We’re in A Fight went on an amazing adventure to find something. She was looking for Sunshine…lollipops…and a Big Box of Awesome! What she found were the ninja claws of our cats.

Lynne of It’s My Imagination was able to find a Big Box of Awesome Contest and A Clue!

Today I also received a very important package. I can’t say much about it. That is, until December 16th. So you have to come on back here on December 16th to find out what was in the package I received today. Because what’s inside may benefit you or someone you know.

I noticed today on Twitter that there are a lot of people be nominated for what’s called the shortyawards. They are some sot of awards that have to do with Twitter. I got a nomination from Scott from AverageDudes. He nominated me in the personal category. He said that is because I post every single day on Twitter. And that’s true because I do post on Twitter I mostly post through Utterli. I’ve been using Utterli since Blog World Expo 2007 (and they were called Utterz). Every single day to post my photo a day. With Utterli I’m able to post to Twitter, my blog Google is Not God, and Flickr. I used to post to Pownce as well but Pownce is no longer around. I wonder how many other Web 2.0 companies are going to stop being around. At least with Pownce they gave me the XML files with all of the content that I posted there. While the content was redundant it’s still good to know that it was not totally lost.

As far as the ShortyAwards, I probably won’t win but I would love some nominations in the Personal Category if you like what I am doing here on this blog and on Twitter. Heres how you do it

To nominate someone for a Shorty Award, use the form on their site, or send a tweet similar to this:
@shortyawards I nominate @benspark in category #personal because… (but write something of your own).

And while you are at it, please nominate Ted Murphy of IZEA in the category of # #advertising. Something like this
@shortyawards I nominate @tedmurphy in category #advertising because… (but write something of your own).

I am always amazed at the connections that I make online. I’ve written about and even thrown a contest about Fry Sauce. Today I got a comment from Jim R. He used to make the fry sauce for an Arctic Circle. And he found my post about Fry Sauce and told me the correct way to make it.

    I hate those off days. It was rainy, dark and gloomy all day here too. I wanted to go home and bury my head under the covers. Glad you were still able to be productive, though. That’s hard to do when you’re just not feeling it.

    PS- I found something in the big box of awesome, too! :)

    Chica,
    Yep it was a great thing to find out that my taste buds were pretty on track after all.

    Dina,
    I was so tempted all day to crawl back in bed. It was calling my name.

    So what did you find, are you going to tell me. I think I can get something to go with that. SD 32MB. Maybe.

  6. Drew says:

    Julie,

    Thanks very much. Are you in one of the categories that I might go and tweet you up?

  7. MLDina says:

    I can’t say just yet, but if anyone wants to find out, I suggest they watch Monday’s episode of MLTV at http://www.marketleveragetv.com. I personally think it’s one of the best prizes! :)

    Dina,
    You are doing a good job keeping that under wraps. I can’t wait to see the show.

    Oddly with the icestorm and the power going out in most of the towns from Marlborough to Worcester I was feeling much better until I realized I couldn’t take a shower or have breakfast. I nominated you on twitter also

    Thanks for the nomination Lenny. I made it to the front page of #personal. Too bad about the power going out though.
