The Long Dream

Hey. Hello. I just sold a case of my ScribblePads to Walmart. The calm part of me is suppressing the other part of me who is jumping up and down and dancing around giggling like a little schoolgirl while wetting himself. I wake up each day and look for clues as to whether or not I am dreaming. If this is a dream, it is the longest dream I have ever had. Eight days, it has been. I haven’t tried pinching myself. I just did it and it hurt, so that is supposed to prove that I am not dreaming. I think I am holding my breath. It was just too easy. I don’t know for sure if they are out on the floor, yet. This picture was taken before I talked to the manager. I like to think that doing this gave me a little more positive juju. A little bit of magic. I also could have gotten arrested or fined. I think that when I talked to the manager the main thing I conveyed was that I just wanted a chance. Maybe those were the magic words. “I’m just asking for a chance.” That is what I said. This is only speculation, though. I am trying to stay calm because even though I got my product in Walmart, now it is a matter of my product flying off of the shelves if I am to claim success. If you are in the Fenton, MI area, stop by their Walmart and buy a couple. Cool. Yeah, cool. Stay cool.

PS…..I went to the Fenton Walmart to see if they were out on the floor, yet. They are not. I was told that it takes a little time to get registered in the Walmart vendor system.

The Evolution of Skribbers

My good friend Dave says that he likes to see the evolution of my art. Behold! The latest incarnation of the Skribbers Stationery header art!

Evolutionary leaps:

  • Hand-drawn “Skribbers” logo
  • The addition of the word STATIONERY
  • The addition of the “Frog Pad” page

The Play Game

I am currently working on a new game along the lines of the True or Hoowie game. I am calling it The Play Game. At present, it is very primitive, but I thought you might like to see what I am up to. You would not believe how long it took me to get this far. My brain is made for creativity, not technical mumbo jumbo!

A lot of bugs need to be worked out. Join me, as I stumble and fumble my way through the world of links, animation, and websites. As you can see from the screenshot above, there is a new tag called The Play Game. Click on the screenshot and give it a go! It is fully functional and ready for your perusal. I plan to have three levels of difficulty: Ridiculously Difficult, Normal, and Stable Genius (very easy).  This first puzzle is Stable Genius and Normal to me, but to others it might be Ridiculously Difficult. Let’s call it Stable Normal. No. I am not saying that I am smart. I am saying that I am immersed in the world of science fiction, while others are not. So, of course this one would be easy for me!

The reasons for doing this are manifest. It’s entertaining, not only to others, but to myself. It is promotional. Each game is like a little ad for Skribbers. Also, the more I post The Play Game, the stronger my presence in the search engines like Google and Yahoo. It’s educational. We can all learn something new while having fun at the same time. It is sneaky because those who play will have no idea that they are being both solicited and educated.  Stay tuned for more!

You need to ask yourself…why is that shark smiling?

 Here is the new ScribblePad design. I will print some up as soon as I can.                                    I call it, “Shark in Ocean”. I thought this shark kind of looked like a dolphin. (Just change the shape of the mouth area a little bit, get rid of the sharp teeth and vents on his neck, and you got yourself a dolphin.)
