Day One of Lei-gate

I am a sucker for a dare (marie, I know you are too, so you'll understand) and today Jessica dared me to wear this pink lei around my neck for the next seven days. I have to keep it on while I'm sleeping, I have to keep it on in the shower, I have to keep it on at all times. For the next seven days. I am allowed to take the lei off at midnight on July 4th. (At which point I'll be able to claim that "I wore a lei for seven days straight" as a New Thing.)

I don't win anything for completing the task. Just the honor of having completed it. It's a dare and I took it and now I'm stuck with this pink, plastic thing around my neck for the next 168 hours, or so. Wish me luck.

For the record, in case Guiness comes calling (is there such a thing as a record for Longest Lei-ing?) (ha) I put the lei on today, Wednesday, June 28, sometime between 3 and 3:30 p.m., but since I didn't look at a clock, let's just say 3:30 p.m. to be safe.

And Urp, I want to take you up on your dare, but I'm already booked every night this week! If I had to go on a date with it, I suppose it would have to be on the 5th of July, which would extend my wearing of the lei, which I'm willing to do, if I had a date lined up, but I don't...

But you fucking triple dog dared me, so I guess I'm going to have to scrounge one up.

Dammit.

I remember having a conversation with my dad when I was a little kid, he was explaining to me that Guinness had gotten a lot pickier about the kind of things it would accept (I'm sure he was trying to dissuade me from doing something dumb to try to make a world record...I wish I could remember what...)

Anyway I just distinctly remember him saying, "It's not like you could...put your hand on a car for a really long time and get a world record."

Now I'm going to try to remember what the hell I was planning on doing for my world record.

Erik said...

but you CAN put your hand on a car for a really long time and, if not get a record, well, GET A CAR!

Have you ever seen the documentary HANDS ON A HARDBODY?

1. i bet five dollars that the lei will not last for seven days. i theorize that sleep, sweat and showers will cause it to deteriorate.

2. I want to see Hands on a Hard Body. but it won't come out on DVD.

Erik said...

joe chandler,

1. yes, i'm slightly worried about the deterioration factor, but i'll take your damn bet. five dollars? you're on.

2. i haven't actually seen Hands on a Hardbody, i've just seen clips from it. The first time i heard about it, i assumed it was a porno.

joe chandler said...

it's been on my netflix queue for months and they won't even get a release date.

after the bet you'll have a new new thing. "I lost five dollars to joe Chandler"

also, "I realized Joe Chandler is smart"

and i'm really annoyed that you didn't already know the second new thing, but I'll take what I can get.

Also, I'll have a better new thing, and I'll insult you on my blog....I can't wait!

Erik said...

yer smart, joe chandler?

we'll see if i end up lurning that...

joe chandler said...

new thing # whatever...i made up the word "lurn"

Erik said...

did i make it up or did u make it up?

joe chandler said...

i'm confused.

Erik said...

did i make up the word because i used it first? or did you make it up because you claimed it as a new word?

joe chandler said...

what i thought was happening was you were accusing me of using it in another post somewhere and i was frantically searching for where i'd made the mistake. that word is ALL yours.

So, if someone dared you to run in front of a moving vehicle, would you do it?

Just wondering as Punk Ass moms are likely to do.

Erik said...

Yes.

I see.

Uma, can you help?

PAM

Erik said...

oooooo PAM, i'm just being a PunkAss myself. Of course I wouldn't jump in front of a moving vehicle if you dared me too. Sheeesh.

Erik said...

You're so literal sometimes.

OMG and I love that Morrisey is singing for me. I feel him.

I dare you to wear shoes for 1 year.

Erik said...

Very funny, anonymous--but you'd have to pay me BIG to get me to wear shoes all year.
