This Is Not an April Fools’ Day Joke…

(Before I start this entry, I want to thank everyone for your comments, emails, and messages. I am doing my best to respond – sorry it’s taking so long!)

I have never been a fan of April Fools’ Day, the reason being that I am a naturally trusting person.

Alright, I admit it – I am downright gullible.

As in, I actually did check to see if the word “gullible” was in the dictionary when someone told me otherwise.

I have been in a confused state of mind the entire day, especially while checking my feeds on Google Reader.

Has the Guardian really gone all Twitter?

Where can I download the 3D version of Google Chrome?

How can I enable AutoPilot on my Gmail?

Wow, CERN has redeemed itself from the Large Hadron Collider disaster by discovering the cell that triggered the Big Bang!

Nooooo! Steve Carell can not leave The Office!

I know that Android is being considered for a netbook…but are GM and Ford really collborating to bring forth an Android car?

And, most importantly, has Google really actualized Skynet with the creation of CADIE?

(BTW, does Google do anything except come up with April Fools’ Day jokes?)

I’m relieved that the day is coming to an end, and I can relax with a new episode of South Park.

In the meantime, I have a favor to ask of you, my readers, and it is not an April Fools’ Day joke.

My friends have entered their 240 sqft studio in Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool 2009 Contest. And they need you to vote for them!

Head on over to their entry page and click on the “Thumbs Up” icon to submit your vote (you’ll need to register for the site first, which is free and painless). That’s it.

Voting will end in 48 hours, so please take 3 minutes to go vote for them! I’ve been to their apartment, and it’s cozy and gorgeous…not to mention, they put in a lot of work to make it this way – they really deserve to win!

    Oh good heavens I am so gullible too. I also hate April Fool’s Day – I inevitably fall for some stupid joke (or several) every. single. year. I totally feel your pain! And I think your friends deserve some sort of insane award for living in 240 sq. ft. Where do they sleep?!

    Honestly, I am pretty gullible to but I am know for my messing with people so I find it good that people play pranks on me I guess I see it as the one day that the calendar says they can get me back seeing as most of my friends are younger than me. As long as they keep it clean I don’t mind. I know one year someone scared the crap out of me(I still don’t know who it was). I got a really nice card and some money or something about sorry about my bad day here’s some money about my bad day. I was like what bad day? So I open up the box that had a bunch of bugs in it that all came crawling at me at once so screamed and almost broke my glass door throwing the box outside. Sometimes I’m a real girl but I mean come on I almost had a heart attack(Attack of the Bugs!!!). Oh wow I wish I had their place it’s small but I like it that way, not much to clean and very livable. Where do I get a place like that?
