Well. The contest is over. But Adam Bomb still knows the way to my heart.

These still make me so happy!... and this one is fantastic.

We look so earnest!

And now it's time for an experiment:

I don't know anything about Google AdSense. I've been working on different analogies in my head this past week to see how I feel about it. The closest I could come up with was.... You-Me-Go, in a way, is like our home. Right now, it's a pretty great place. We're starting to get our house in order. It seems that you like to come visit every so often (and hey, thanks for that!). With that in mind, what if some man in a suit walked up to my door and offered...

"Listen, I have these fairly ugly yet magical curtains that I'm giving away for free. Or they're not exactly ugly. You probably won't notice them most of the time... it's just that they're not what you would ever choose for yourself. Anyways, they're free and they magically make you a very small amount of money every month. What do you think?"

Would I put up those curtains? Would it be worth it if they paid for our train fare every month? Is this forbidden blog fruit?

I don't know!

It's just that every time I post, blogger sends their congratulations and then asks if I'm friends with Salesman AdSense.

So... I think we're going to try it for a week. If it's obtrusive or the ads are a bad weird, we can burn up the curtains and put back the old ones. Does that sound alright?

Leave sarcastic anonymous comments if it doesn't.

(no, seriously - that would be perfect)

And Mom and Dad, I don't think you're supposed to click the ads repeatedly. I think they catch onto you after awhile. So! I know you love me! And I have enough money to eat three square meals a day.

p.s. if you read this within the first hour of posting, I'm still trying to figure out placement.

what I really mean: if it looks crazy right now, I probably know that, too!

Bahaha. Death Jockey is Busch Gardens' Howl-O-Scream mascot this year. You can see more ridiculousness at www.deathjockey.com. (You know it's going to be good when you have to prove you're at least 13 to get into the site.)

A lot of my friends try out every year to be Howl-O-Scream characters because it's an easy job to get, it's pretty fun, and it's a good way to get a little extra dough. (I've done it in the past.) Plus, it's at night, so it doesn't interfere with most other jobs.

Anyway, my friend Robert tried out this year and got the main character position. So his makeup/costume looks 10 times as awesome as anyone else's.

Hmm... I didn't know Blogger would leave an ugly "This post has been removed by the author" thing when I deleted my post to add something I forgot. Sorry about that.

magic curtains and all, they're still ugly. that being said, my dad is a huge advocate of AdSense and all things internet marketing, so i can't fault you too much. but - ugly none the less. it doesn't mean less love though.
