My Daily Digg Disappointment (72) Hump Day!
Good Morning World! I promise, today I'm going to be adding stories all day long and on the go. You hear me? I'm ready to roll for a day of DDD just for you! So buckle those chin straps and come along. I have a feeling today is gonna be the best DDD ever. Like now for instance. I have to clean up for work and drive an hour (which means I will spend 25.00 today alone in gas) to a boring job with no excitement. So guess what? I'm creating excitement today. (cough cough)
Let's rock and roll. Oh, and make my day and digg my friends stuff will ya?

3 of the World's Most Amazing 3D Graffiti Artists [PICS]
Most people tend to think of graffiti as subversive art spray-painted in the dead of night on walls. Some artists, however, including Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner, defy that stereotype, painting and chalking openly on city streets and sidewalks. Beyond merely entertaining crowds, their work has at times even broken world records!

So here's an update for you. I just went to the donut shop to get some donuts and O.J. and I've made up my mind to seek different employment. Without going into many, many details, suffice it to say I'm not happy and I know when I wake up in the morning dreading to go to work, I need to find something else to make me happy. So why not use this here internets to shout out to my network and peeps I'm looking for employment? If you know of anyone that needs someone in consumer lending, or college admissions, I'll be here waiting. (yawn)Just sayin. Of course if anyone needs a writer, I can try that as well seein as how that's my true passion.

So there you go Digg friends. Unless the earth stops rotating, that might be all for today. But wait, you never know, I might slide another story in here before quitting time. Either way, this has been fun today. I got to take out some frustrations out on this keyboard. Now, in order for my spirits to remain high, shout the DDD to the high heavens. I'm still trying to make the front page with one of these. And guess what? If the DDD goes to the front page, so do YOU!
Most of us who had going-off-to-college parties usually had some dinner with family, maybe a house party with friends, and maybe, if we're lucky, our parents would finally relent and spring for Coors Light party ball to build up our alcohol tolerance enough before we begin five years of chronic binge-drinking.
One proud papa, whose son is headed off to the University of Florida, really wants his going away party to be memorable and visually stimulating for his guests. Courtesy of Sports Oasis (via EDSBS) comes this ad from Craig's List:
I need 4 ladies who don't mind wearing body paint for my sons going off to College Party. There will be a University of Florida theme so you will have UF football uniforms professionally airbrushed on your upper body but you will be wearing blue boy shorts. You will be compensated $100 per hour for serving drinks and finger foods plus any tips you receive. I will take care of the rest, your shorts, meals & transportation if needed. If you are interested please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and please include photos that demonstrate your figure so I can determine if you have the right look for the party, thanks.
Of course, the original ad has been removed by Craig's List (maybe it was the metrofilmz email address?), but at least the original ad is still intact courtesy of the blogosphere. Nobody should deprive a young man (and his father!) of having a troop of "professionally" airbrushed ladies parade around in boy shorts serving finger food before he heads off to college.
And, seriously, Sterger? You can change allegiances for an afternoon. It's a quick $400 in your pocket.
