Ouch - it's Friday again and I'm a post short of a circus. (the caffeine hasn't kicked in so I don't know what I'm typing)
Mrs. 4444 (if you are good and say good things about Wisconsin, she might tell you the meaning of that number) has her Friday thing going so I decided to give it a go again. Also, there are good FF posts listed so you are in good company with this group.
I have an interest in ideas. Maybe it's common, maybe it's not, but I get ideas popping into my head all the time. Most of them pop right back out or go to some other part of my body. - That's not fat. It's a bunch of ideas that got stuck on my waist.
On the subject of fat - there's a new company called FreezeAwayFat that claims you can lose fat by wearing their $100 shorts with cold-gel packet inserts. That would frost my ass.
I don't even follow basketball. I happened by chance to watch the Lakers win last month but I didn't even now they were in the playoffs until the final game. Now I know that LeBron James (whose last and first names seem to be switched) will be playing for the Heat. The media makes their own hype. I try to make my own hype on this blog but I guess my budget is much lower.
A startup guy (probably has ideas popping) is launching a web service called Swipely. The idea is to share (be honest use the word brag) your purchase choices with your friends. He should call it Keeping-up-with-the-Jones or Please-don't-notice-my-inadequacies.
Another social web thing (they don't say web 2.0 anymore ??) is RentAFriend.com
Now that's an idea that needs close scrutiny to avoid becoming something illegal. From an article I read in the Chicago Tribune I believe it is legitimate.
From their web site:
RentAFriend.com is a website that allows you to rent local Friends from all over the United States and Canada. You can rent a local Friend to hang out with, go to a movie or restaurant with, someone to go with you to a party or event, someone to teach you a new skill or hobby, or someone to show you around an unfamiliar town.
I thought that was what a politician was but with a very short rental period.
