The Daily SlackerThe Daily Slacker

I was going to post about packing due to worries about being fired and then ending up with a super clean desk for the firs time in forever, but I realized there was something MUCH MUCH cooler to blog about:
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAILY SLACKER!!!
 
That's right, the Daily Slacker and the International Bureau of Slacking is one year old. On May 9th, 2005 and idea bloomed to have an outlet for my slacking. I needed somewhere to rant, somewhere to rave, and, you know, promote the Ethos of Slacking! Thus, the IBS was formed and the Daily Slacker was born.
 
The first post was:
 
----------------------------------
Up to speed!
 
So here's my life at present:

I work for a major medical device company, doing all sorts of crazy design type things. I am however at this time very undervalued, but I'm sure there will be posts at length about that later. I just bought a condo in Saint Paul, MN and am doing my best to move out of my current apartment in Minneapolis using only my 95 Nissan Altima (Allie). That car's a trooper. I think she's a little pissed that I scuffed up one of the armrests, but she'll get over it. After those two, lately I haven't had much life. I'm quite glad my condo really doesn't need much work on it at all or I'd have none. Next step is to try and regain a fun and exciting life. Wish me luck!
----------------------------------
 
Amazing how very little has changed in a year! Same Job, Same Problems, Same Condo, Same Car and I still don't have much of a life. heh. Sure lots of stuff happened, but for everything that changed, it really all ended up the same. Girls have come, girls have gone and I had a few fun adventures as well but I'm still here slacking. I even started an Odyssey ;O) Don't worry, I don't plan on going anywhere for a while either ;O)
 
So what has a year produced? Some good Slacking tools for you all to use (see the bar on the right) amongst the 253 other posts. It's definitely kept me slacking from work, and it appears that about 26 of you each day took the time to slack as well. 9844 visits. Almost 10,00! that's crazy, way to slack people! Keep it up!
 
There should be some good stuff for you all in the near future. Kickball season is starting up again so that pretty much guarantees much debauchery, I'm probably going to give match.com a try again and see if I can get back into the whole dating thing, and there's still much more of Slacker's Dating Odyssey still to come!
 
Birthday Deputizations!!!
 
In celebration of the Daily Slacker's first birthday, it's time to open up the doors again and increase the ranks of Deputies in the International Bureau of Slacking! I have no limit on the number of new deputies this time. What you need to do is leave a comment describing why you should be a deputy and there's a good chance you'll get it. The guidelines are as follows:
 
-Must be at least 25 words. (And no cheating by typing the same word or something similar!)
-No more than 100 words.
-You MUST comment.
-You MUST have a blog or other web page you regularly update
-Bonus points if you're from a state/country there is currently no Deputy in.
-Humor is a plus
-If you've commented a bunch before, you'll almost definitely get in.
 
It's time to get the slacking going here at the IBS. The world is way to boring and productive, time to shake things up a little! :O) We'll call it Project Slacker. It's like Project Mayhem from Fight club, except we won't be blowing anything up. It is time however to start having more fun!
 
Birthday Prize!!!
 
Since the visit tracker is inching close to 10 grand, there is a present on the line. I have a two CD Set "Music to Slack To Vols. 1&2" and visitor 10,000 will get them! I will be tracking each visit, so don't try and rig it. All you have to do for confirmation is to take a screen shot, paste it into a picture program, save it and send it to me with your address and you'll get the CDs in the mail! I will let you review the music before hand if you wish, no guarantees Chief Slacker's favs will be yours ;O)
 
Anyway, good luck to you! and HAPPY BIRTHDAY DS!!!

Hmm, how about you make me part of the bureau so that you can say you have someone from New York who comments from time to time? Now is that a crappy reason or what?

Yay Daily Slacker - Happy Birthday to you! I'm new to the world of blogging (and am thoroughly addicted to reading them now). I have added you to my favorites. Looking forward to hearing more about slacking. Maybe I can pick up some pointers.

I'd tell you why I should be a slacker deputy, but that would take time away from me slacking. Just deputize me already...
