Down on your lock? Put on a happy face!

grab bag, tips, wackiness

If you go to a MegaGym like I do with Megasized Locker rooms and you’ve ever been MegaFrustrated trying to find which locker you put your stuff in… here’s an idea for you.

Take some red or brightly-colored nail polish, and paint a happy face on your lock. Two eyes on top (duh!) and a smile on the bottom.

I honestly have NO idea what originally possessed me to try this, but let me just say, it’s turned out to be wonderfully helpful. Plus, even after all these months, I still smile whenever I pull my lock out of my gym bag 🙂

    somehow your comments never remember me.

    Show us a picture of your anthropomorphized lock!

    reminds me of those stick-on eyes they sell in Japan for putting faces on any household object you want a face on.

    I wouldn’t take it personally, Anita.  The darn comments boxes don’t even remember ME, dangit! 🙁

    Well, actually, they do remember me on the individual (permalinked) pages, but not on the pop-up boxes.  I think it has something to do with distinct (sub)domains.  You’ll note that the pop-up boxes are called from mt.smilezone.com/…. whereas the individual-page comments are on blog.smilezone.com/…

    Argh.  Sometimes computers are just frustrating.  I’ll look into the issue, though, I promise!

    Oh, and about my smiley lock—I’d love to share a picture of this, but alas, my wonderful digital camera was stolen this past summer while I visited Estonia, and I’ve not yet replaced it 🙁  Sorry!

    Wow, spam is actually pretty artsy and surreal when you remove the annoying links and add in a cool one of your own 😀

    initially been more of the collabourative, free direct tv holistic bent), the music is seldom directv as good. Examples I can think of immediately: free dish network Spacemen 3. Mercury Rev (this one free satellite tv is arguable either way). Sebadoh, digital satellite tv first with Lou and Eric, then with direct tv Lou and Jason. They Might Be Giants. dishsinologiesa Pixies, although they just broke up free directv before too much of it got to happen. dish network
