Revisions Aren’t Always Painful

Feb 06, 2012 Uncategorized 16 comments

Hah! You thought I meant writing, didn’t you?

Now you’ve seen the infamous videos (and if not, they’re >>here<< and >>here<<), and we’ve read your comments, Amy and I wanted to make some revisions to the Hacky Sack Club official rules.

The wonderful Laurel had the brilliant idea of expanding this club beyond just hacky sacks. SO . . .

  1. Any crazy talent (or non-talent) gets you into the club! Just post a video (or picture) of yourself doing it. Making balloon animals, standing on your head, using chop sticks, . . . the possibilities are endless, and they’ll all get you into our exclusive club.
  2. Let us know when you post! E-mail the link to me (see that “Contact Me” tab up there?) or Amy when it’s up so we can include you in our hall of shame, ahem, FAME. And be sure to include a snail mail address so we can send you a hacky sack. We’re serious, here!
  3. We will send you a hacky sack immediately if you want to try it (which we whole-heartedly encourage), but don’t have one. Just send either of us your address and we’ll send you a hacky sack (as long as supplies last) post haste so you can make a video. Brilliant, I know!
In short, we will keep our quirky name, but we’ll all KNOW that the club goes beyond just the title. Fitting, no? So please, grab the button, come enjoy a little silliness with us, and let’s break some boundaries! (Just no breaking anything else like toes or something.)
And please, don’t make us beg. Haven’t we embarrassed ourselves enough?!

  1. What a cool idea. I can . . . I can . . . . Um, I'm not sure what my talent is. I mean watching me take photos isn't all that exciting. Just ask my kids. "Mom, you said it was only going take a minute to take a picture of that flower. It's already been an hour. Enough!!!!" πŸ˜€

    That's a great idea! As for talent… er… I might need to ponder that for a bit. πŸ™‚

  3. Old Kitty says:

    I have no talent to speak of (quirky or otherwise!) but I can't wait to see what others post! Yay!

    Take care

  4. I am not good at the hacky sack at all. I maybe kept it in the air up to three kicks tops. That would make me an embarrassing member.

    I gave you a Shout-Out on my blog today! πŸ™‚

  5. LTM says:

    I'm just not sure what I need to DO to be in the HSC–other than the silly video. πŸ˜€ Direct me to the explanatory post…

  6. Hahaha! That's great!! I wish I could do something, but…alas, I'm talentless. I think…I'll think about it and get back to you. ^_^

  7. Carolyn V says:

    Serious? It doesn't have to be a hacky sack? Sweet! Now I have to think of a really cool talent. πŸ˜‰

  8. A hacky sack club. You guys are rad!

  9. Emily says:

    FAN.TAS.TIC!!! πŸ™‚

  10. Oh, man. I want a quirky talent! I'll have to think on this one. It's a pity making my house a natural disaster area isn't quirky, cause I do a GREAT job of it.

    How about making clothes angels out of the mound of sortable laundry on my bed? No?

  11. Hehehe awesome. One day I will find a video camera and make a plan. πŸ™‚

  12. Crazy talent, huh? Oh, how I wish I could make balloon animals. Since I can't, I'll have to figure out some other talent. Hmmmm.

  13. Ha! You guys are so awesome. I love this!

  14. I wish I had a quirky talent. I can't do one of those things you listed. This all sounds like fun, though.

  15. I don't know, Janet, we may need to start begging…. πŸ˜‰

  16. I'm very impressed. Hacky Sack. Juggling cats. You ladies have it going on!
