So far I watched a movie starting with an "F" (Fern Gully), imagined everyone naked (which I do not recommend because it eventually becomes rather icky), ignored a day (more difficult then it sounds), glued a spatula to my arm (strangely no one noticed), managed to lure a fly into the box but missed, tried growing another toe (no luck, yet), went on a one minute hunger strike (more difficult then it sounds), applied for a knighthood (no response, yet), imagined myself as that old man of day 362 and realized that no I am not fulfilled plus I forgot to buy a copy of that weeks TV Guide, took the psychopath test (nope, not telling the results), discovered I am not symmetrical, attempted to invent a new color but only ended up with a mucky sort of beige, spent an entire day ticking off each minute (boring yet profound), and a few other things I cannot or will not mention.
Oh! I even combined two days worth of activities by memorizing Aubrey's face and dressing like a tourist. I searched the city for her, while stopping at tourist attractions which made me recognize the need to move to someplace more exciting, but never found her. I really want to know that secret she is supposedly harboring. I feel it necessary to warn you that I truly believe the whole "Aubrey" thing may be a trick.
Oh! A really eerie thing is that an actual photo of me is in this book. Yes, really! They must have "borrowed" it from a friend's website, that is the only way they could have gotten a hold of it.Read more ›
The book is wonderfully laid out with a variation of design that makes for delicious eye candy and draws the eye in throughout the book. It's a great deal of fun and would be perfect as a silly gift for a birthday, secret santa or something to brighten one's day.
**One word of warning for those with younger children - there is some adult humor of a sexual nature so don't put this in a place where young eyes can see this (if your house indeed has younger children). It's not too explicit but enough to instigate a "what does that mean" type of conversation.
Despite its obviously hokey premise, the book's aims are (for the most part) legitimate. At least, they take great pains for you to believe that they are. There are a few mostly impossible suggestions (very few people could manage, for instance, to spend an entire day underwater) which diminish any seriousness one might bring to the book's claims, but overall, I found myself wishing that I had both the time and the energy to put into motion the book's proposal of daily life changing.
Ironically, I think the book's best impact would be on people who do try to live out the ideas mentioned in the pages, if for no other reason than it would make the humor in those ideas more poignant and personal. Things like going one day without your sense of sight, or mailing your picture and $5 to a random address, or fasting for one day are funny to read about, but their practice, I imagine, would provide one's life with a definite, if not brief, edge. Perhaps your life as a whole won't change, but that day will certainly be very, very different.
Because the book's humor is so overt and, at the same time, subtle and invasive, it's a given that few people will try to put into practice the book's demands (even though mulitple entries promise fame "in the next book" for people who turn in their various results). This, I think, is a shame.Read more ›
