Peer into my crystal ball

My future holds a project related to fortune telling. I can't reveal all now, but I need your help! That's right all of you reading this, I need your help. I need eight highly entertaining fortunes similar to those that you would find in a fortune cookie. I want them to be actual fortunes about things that will happen, not, "Confucious says . . ." Something that would make you smile or giggle if you got it in a fortune cookie. I've come up with five decent options so far, but I need at least three more. Obviously, they have to be fortunes you wouldn't mind me using in one of my designs, but there's something in it for you too. If I use a fortune that you came up with, I'll mail you a copy of the finished product.

On a sidenote, have you been reading Eva's blog? She started doing profiles of creative people every Thursday and she posted a little about me yesterday and you can check it out here. Be sure to check out the rest of her blog for more of Eva's thoughts and projects and some updates from Kirk in Poland too.

"you will soon witness a miracle"

no really giggle worthy, but I liked it

The next person you meet is going to be verrrrrrry mysterious. Then you will get to know them and they won't be mysterious after all.

Here's a fortune I want for myself:

"You will make a new friend today."

or some advice I need to take:

"Live like noone is watching."

I always thought it would be humorous to get a fortune that said something obvious like, "You will make a right turn" or "You will blink soon"...

But I'm kinda weird like that.

Kate said...

"You will soon be the recipient of an insignificant strange treasure."

Were these supposed to be good fortunes?

Elisa said...

Your smile will change someones life today.

You will narrowly escape a speeding ticket.

humiliation ahead, check your fly often.

You will look great in your jeans this week.

Wink at a stranger...good things will occur.

Call your mother.

I will keep thinking. I love your creativity!! Can't wait to see what you are up to.

I just saw this online...
"It is unwise to throw rocks at tigers"

It gave me a good chuckle!
