The time has come my children - the day you have been waiting for.
You know, you wonderful subscribers really can be kind of NOT-NICE to wish to see me suffer in this way!
But actually - no nasty snack can compare to the technical problems I had with this post.
This was a five minute video - all I wanted to do was edit it together into one seamless video and cut out any ridiculously loud chomping.
But nope. After struggling with a 5 minute video for an estimated 16 hours - and staying up as late as 2:30 at night to try to fix the problems - I resolved myself to the individual, unedited and hopefully-not-too-lame clips below.
*cringes* Not only do I film myself eating - I REALLY DISLIKE having people watch me while I eat - I can't even put together a slick little vlog like every other blogger on the planet.
This is too embarrassing. You watch it - I just can't watch it again.
To those of you web travelers who might be new to this blog - I agreed, publicly, that if I reached 20 subscribers - I would eat celery and peanut butter, and film myself doing it.
Well - obviously - I reached 20 subscribers.
I broke out the celery and peanut butter.
And I filmed the video.
So prepare to do something; laugh, squirm, yawn - something.
Okay - Roll video.
DON'T FORGET TO TURN ON THIS MUSIC FOR THE SLIDE SHOW - IT'S IMPERATIVE!
BREAKING NEWS: It took me over a week to film and TRY to edit this video.
Since filming this 'video',
I got another 8 subscribers to my blog!!!!!
I am utterly gobsmacked. I have no idea where those 8 subscribers came from - they just popped in - bang, bang, bang - and I didn't even realize it until I logged into Weebly and there was a nice, plump batch of them, sitting on my newsletter form - waiting to say hello. I have 29 subscribers!!
After celebrating appropriately - guess my two immediate thoughts?
1. All of THIS because of CELERY AND PEANUT BUTTER?
2. Now I MUST create a better newsletter.
That being said - I am SO EXCITED to have reached 29 subscribers. Thank you SO MUCH, ALL OF YOU! Thank you so much for following my Well!
Now that you're all here - I'll probably have to do something fabulous and/or weird when I reach 40 subscribers. Any ideas?
Yup, I'm probably the only blogger that lures in subscribers by promising to perform idiotic or crazy feats. I'm starting to feel like the 'You Asked For It' show. You want to see it - I'll do it.
I'm like the Evil Knievel of bloggers!
Probably Only I - The Great Allison - would turn my blog into a daredevil site. That's right - EATING CELERY AND PEANUT BUTTER IS A DARE DEVIL STUNT!
Note from the Sponsor: The gif above was used as a humorous elaboration on the previous sentence - I will not actually preform that stunt at any time, for any incentive.
We will now return to our feature presentation.
Introducing the Q & A Post!
Introducing the - ! Well, you get the idea.
So ask me a question - any question! There must be something. No? Nothing? Not even one measly question?
You disappoint me. Okay, here's a few warm ups to get you started.
Ask me anything - really.
1. Favorite food, color, book, movie, restaurant, game, sport, song? - and so on and so on.
2. Would you ever swim with whales?
3. Did you ever have an imaginary friend?
4. What is the strangest thing you have ever collected?
5. What is your current desktop picture?
6. If I could create a half hour TV Show - what would it be called and what would be the premise?
7. If you could have a superhuman ability - what would it be?
Now, aren't those interesting questions? Aren't you DYING to know my answers to these - and more? Why miss this golden opportunity?
No limit on the amount of questions - and I sure hope I get more than 10 - because, it would be really embarrassing now if nobody comments after this . . .
Now there may be a FEW I don't answer . . . it depends on what they are, in which case you have the right to throw virtual tomatoes at me.
So you see? Added mystery. Don't you want to see which questions I WILL answer and which one's I WON'T?
So, would you prefer to have me answer your questions in a vlog, or a blog post?
Friendly reminder: If I do a vlog, you won't get any GIFs . . .
Yes, I thought that might horrify some of you.
Wait - NEWS FLASH: Yeah, the jury is in - SOMETHING IS DEFINITELY AND IRREPARABLY WRONG WITH MY VIDEO EDITING SOFTWARE. So unless I can do a PERFECT video (no toilet flushes, no un-maidenly appliance of a paper napkin, no stammering - and most importantly NO MORE 16 HOURS SLAVING OVER A THREE MINUTE VIDEO - if I can't accomplish that - I probably won't do a vlog.
Besides - I just love my GIFs too much!
So c'mon - it's time to get some answers!
