Mad New Skillz

I figured out how to do a few more tricks on my blog, like putting things in Italics. Look how cool this is. Italics! Shweet!!

Next week I will attempt to put things in bold type. Can I do it? I bet you can't stand the suspense.

I also figured out how to embed a YouTube video into a post. I had shied away from this for weeks because I was intimidated by how technical it would probably be. HTML code! OMG!

So. Turns out it's just a cut and paste operation. Not so tricky after all!

In honour of my incredibly draining weekend, I am posting an ad for a new energy beverage. I would like a big, cold can of this stuff, right now. Would anyone care to join me for a Brawndo?

OMG, I want some of that energy drink now. Do you think they sell it in Ohio?

i got :12 in and was so scared i couldn't watch the rest! the gutteral noises kept making me jump back. my fave net toy is strikethrough. i was super excited when i figured that and youtube out. yay!

R.E.H. said...

That drink scares the crap out of me... I'll stick to my Heineken - it does most of these things ;)

Nice to learn new things, isn't it?

i was so proud of myself when i figured out how to put strikethroughs in words and hyperlink in a comment. it was sad. congrats though!

Ron: Apparently you can order it off their website at I haven't seen it at 7-11 yet.
If you do order some, I want to hear about your Brawndo taste experience!

Jameil: Yes, it is a bit shouty.
I just went and looked up how to do strikethroughs. The tool kit expandeth!

R.E.H.: What's scary is that it's REAL. It's based on a completely fake ad for the non-existent product Power Thirst, which you can also find on YouTube. It was supposed to be a joke - and then some genius decided that it should be real. Wild!

Tequila Mockingbird: Thanks. I'll make sure to give myself a pat on the back for my pathetic victory. ;-)

Strikethroughs and hyperlinks in a comment?? I need to catch up. That drink is real and makes you want to have sex with a tractor-trailer truck? The actual truck? That's scary.

Rebecca said...

I want to learn how to do strikethroughs. Help, please. :)

And congratulations to the original poster on your new skillz. Isn't blogging fun?!?

Jenski: I don't know what having sex with a tractor trailer would be like, but I bet that there would be some serious air-horn blaring. AaaaaOOOOOOOgaaaaaaah!

Rebecca: If you google "HTML strikethrough" you'll be off to the races.
And, Thanks! And, Yes!!
