Default happy april, fools

thanks to led_zeppelin and diet_poop for helping with april fools ideas. like anything i do, it turned out a little sloppy, but it was fun.

and congratulations to the contest winners. yes.. there was a contest hidden in gimpy's blog. i hinted a few updates ago there would be free stuff coming very soon. the site that was giving me this "stuff" kept delaying things, and i just ended up getting them now. but it worked out well for those who found the april fools contest.

overall, there were 9 entries (one *just* sneaking in there as i was drawing the names). and there were 5 undergrads DVDs to be given out. but because i hate to see anyone lose, (well except for those who didn't even notice the link -- losers!), there are 5 more DVDs on the way to make everyone a winner. with one to spare to let the person to comment here to be one too. (see, it pays to read these things!)

happy april, everyone

and if you're interested in this years and last years phony pages, they're still around for your viewing pleasure:

Yay! free dvds! Gimpy's blog turned out quite entertaining to read.

yeah, this one was cool and all, but I would like it if you did one from people who were registered on the board, not one of the gprime.irc chatroom bots

it's all about this:

underGRADS is the story of four outsiders - Nitz, Gimpy, Cal and Rocko who through the stress, trial and tribulations of the first year of college manage to stay connected with each other and share their worldly revelations on life after high school via the Internet.

those four are bots that manage the gprime.irc chatroom for everyone to join, though I'm still banned from it for no reason and I can't e-mail john about it since he disabled e-mail abilities to him

Hah! A Myspace theme would have been fantastic. I guess it must have been too much work, though.
