the great social experiment begins

they say it takes 21 days to make a habit.
21 days.
nearly a month.
you can do a lot of things in a month.
i'm gonna try to not complain.
or gossip.
and try to be a better person.
wanna join me?
i'm modeling the latest in self-improvement...courtesy of acomplaintfreeworld.org
here's how it works, in a nutshell (and if you don't want to click the link above) - you wear it for 21 days on either wrist. you try to not complain or gossip. and if you do, it's OK, because everyone does.
if you fall off the kvetching wagon, just switch your bracelet to the other wrist and start over.
i have 20 bracelets. they're free. post here iffn' you'd like to try this with me.
and we can make side bets on how long (or quick) it'll take me to fall off the wagon.

I'm game - I've been trying to do better of these things myself.

Let's see how far we can go!

Oh my, I probably would not last a day. I would have that thing on a different wrist everyday! I drive in Miami traffic for crissake! And not gossip???? I'll try though.

I LOVE this idea. It's hard to do, but something I try to do anyways, but this would make me try harder.

not me, I could never do it. I know I am sooo shallow!

Besides, what would I blog about??

They wrote about these in the campus paper, it sounds cool! But I dunno if I could do it...
