These cool things are a hoot!

Cool thing # 1: I saw this on the always fabulous Heather's site. You put in the phone number of someone you want to give a message to, type in what you want it to say, and it will call that person and read the message electronically. You can pick different voices.

It's my new best friend, The Phone Trick.

Cool thing # 2: I saw this on my oh-so-fabulous friend Michele's site. It is maddeningly addictive, I will warn you right now. According to Michele, the U.S. Air Force uses this as a training aid for fighter pilots, and they are expected to last at least 2 minutes. Michele has lasted over 35 seconds. I can't even get to the 18 seconds it says to shoot for.

Try it. You know you are going to...ESCAPA!

Cool thing # 3: I saw this on the fabulously northern Nanuk's blog. Just scroll down slowly and do the math in your head and call out the answers out loud. I was in the 98 percentile. Mrs. Fab was in the rarified 2 percentile. Where will YOU fall? I give you The Word of Mouth Experiment!

Now that I am back home, I look forward to catching up on what is going on in y'all's lives.

My work here is done. Taxi!

The "word of mouth" link seems to link to "ESCAPA"

And by the way, I couldn't get past 4.5 seconds on ESCAPA. I'm just a big clod. . . :(

Welcome home Mr.Fab.
I am just getting caught up on your blog.
I can't wait to use the phone trick! I am going to send one to myself first to see what it's like. Besides, I kind of enjoy being insulted :)

9:16 AM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Bluepaintred--Umm...this kinda seems more like your blog than mine now LOL

Erin and Kyle--Thank you my friends. It is GREAT to be back.

Shelli--I know your day is PACKED. Have fun!

TJ--I fixed it, thanks for the heads up!

Spidey--Now, I am sure that no one ever insults you. Me, on the other hand...

Geeez! That Escapa thing is addictive. Thanks Fab! I made it almost 11 seconds (sounds better than "little over 10 seconds) on my second attempt. Gotta go!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

I can't make it past 4 seconds on that Escapa thing; I think it's safe to say that the air force won't be knocking on my door anytime soon.

I know you're glad to be home, and your devoted fan club is glad you're back, too.

Thanks for stopping by!
Lessee... I tried that Escapa thing and managed 13.6 seconds... I'm too nervy, I guess.
As for that "blue wrench" I thought of, it makes me wonder exactly what that means about me... :)

17.9 seconds and a black wrench were my results.

I thought of a rusty wrench, but I said red hammer cause I couldn't think of the word wrench (ok, you have 20 lbs mve through your exit points in two days with food poisoning and try to remember wrench).

Aw man! 98%... I wanted to be special. Is there an explanation of how that works?

Meanwhile the astronaut game is scary difficult! Way to get me addicted just when I kicked the Guess-the-Google habit!

I might have to try that phone thing.

My dad got addicted to that box game when I was in California in April.

I was in the 2% which really surprised me because normally I am "normal".
