Today will be my final All That Glitters blog entry. I find that I’m just not passionate about writing anymore and feel my talents could be best used elsewhere. As they say, all good things must come to an end and I’m ready to move on to the next creative chapter in my life. It’s been a blast opening up and sharing my life and love of Los Angeles with you. Thanks so much for reading!!
April Fool! (Okay, I admit I probably didn’t get you!)
Happy April Fool’s Day!
It crossed my mind to use April 1st as an excuse to play a practical joke on my landlord by intentionally writing my rent check out for $1.00. Some of us in the office even entertained the idea of all calling in sick to work today and then all showing up anyway. It might even be fun to call my brother and tell him I’m pregnant. While these aren’t the best practical jokes you’ve ever heard, the point is to be extremely careful of anyone who drops a bomb on you today. Don’t be a sucker and beware!
In honor of April Fools’ Day, I scoured the internet and put together a few fun practical jokes to share. Enjoy! But Beware!
We Didn’t Start the Fire:
“A friend has been visiting me in LA from the east coast. She left the morning of April 1 to go back home. When I returned from work that day I noticed she had left her cell phone charger and it was still plugged in. I called her and asked if she had left her charger plugged in. When she said yes, I told her my place had burned down and the fire department said it started where her charger was plugged in. I told her I had no insurance and all my things including my guitars and all my clothes were gone. I let this go on for about a minute before I asked her, ‘Do you know what the worst part of this is?’ She said no choking back the tears. ‘That it’s April Fool’s on you.’ She didn’t talk to me for a few weeks but now laughs about it.”
Prank Your BFF
Go into the contacts in your pal’s cell phone and change the name associated with your number to a TV character, celebrity or person from her past. Send her ridiculous texts from your phone — she’ll wonder how Mr. T became an entry and why he needs her to join the A-Team. If your friend knows your cell by heart, this may be a one-trick idea. If she doesn’t , you’re in for hours of fun.
