Facebook Profile Hack

Posted on December 20th, 2010 by Jean

Artist Alexander Oudin is credited with creating the new Facebook phenomenon, profile hacking. In essence, beautifying fb profiles by cropping a single photo six times, tagging yourself in five, and making one your profile avatar.
 

 
Hundreds have jumped on the bandwagon, and the results are highly entertaining.
 

 
Applications are popping up to slice & dice your favorite photos, making a snazzy profile page. I used Pic Scatter to create mine using the awesome “Kitty In A Tree” picture from last week. Another app that looks handy is FBCrop.
 
If you’re like me, you’re going to waste spend a lot of your day uploading pics and playing around with these apps. Have fun, and let me know what you create!
 
Here are a couple I made yesterday while I could have been cleaning the house, watching football, and feeding my family.
 

 

 
Don’t blame me if you do not get all of your errands accomplished.
 
• Will you hack your FB profile?
• Would you rather friend request Burt Reynolds or Kim Kardashian’s Ass?
• Have you finished your Christmas shopping?

The Update Blog

All Nighter At The Sleep Lab: After waking with a severe headache and numbness in my upper lip, I decided to visit the The Tri-State Neurological & Sleep Disorder Center. Bloodwork was done the day of my initial appointment, and an EEG was performed the following day. Prior to my MRI and my evening at the Sleep Lab, Tri-State Respiratory phoned to say I was approved for a C-PAP machine. Now that all of the tests are complete, I have the results. I’m completely normal. I couldn’t believe it either. No C-PAP, and no apnea diagnosis. I cited my exhaustion, and my husband’s complaints of my snoring and moments of not breathing. Dr. Nayer said it falls within the normal range to stop breathing for as long as 10 seconds ten times an hour. He also said that at no time was my oxygen saturation below 91%. (Ninety percent and above are healthy levels.)
 
Dr. Nayer gave me three options: 1) remove my uvula with a laser to stop my snoring; 2) take the sleep lab test again; and/or 3) be prescribed “peppy” pills for more daytime energy. He forgot about option number 4: do nothing. As he stretched back in his office chair, he said,
“I cannot recommend you try an over the counter, herbal remedy called SnoreStop.” My bottle of SnoreStop arrived yesterday, and last night hubby and I enjoyed a peaceful night’s sleep.
 
 
Refrigerator Art: After so many positive comments on the girls’ art, I submitted two of Natalie’s drawings to Greeting Card Universe. They were approved! Here are Dancers and Love at First Sight in original and negative image.
 

 
Greeting Card Universe prints 7″ x 5″ high-quality cards. The good thing is I don’t have to invest in inventory. Plus the girls get 56 cents of every sale.
 
While we’re on the subject of updating, I thought it would be fun to post some of my earlier blogs with updated details. Would you be interested in hearing what happened after the carpenter failed to complete our entertainment center project, or what unfolded after Tom gave “Jesus” and his cross a ride to Laughlin, Nevada?
 

• Why do you think I was approved for a C-PAP only to be denied later?
• Do you have any blogs that need a follow-up story?

Refrigerator Art

It’s been a while since I’ve showcased my daughters’ art. They love to draw daily using pens, pencils, markers and crayons. Sometimes they’ll paint or create little sculptures with “squishy” (Play Doh). I hope you will enjoy their recent sketches.
 
Natalie, age 7, loves to draw girls. She has a unique style, a steady hand, and is surprisingly quick at completing her scenes.
