How To Set Your Lucky Alarm To Sound Off In 2008
Thanks Dien for the topic
here's a little jig so you don't stop it...
"There was an young wife from Aussie
she always played the lottery
if bad fortune stuck
she simply paid the clown a buck
That lucky young wife from Aussie"
I thought i'd use a poem to suggest some things.
First, here i;m going to need the help of Bill Clinton
Luck depends on what the meaning of 'is' is as in What Is Luck?
Fo our Aussie wife she simply had to buy a lotto ticket in order
to feel lucky again.
Some of us make this feeling lucky thing a lot harder than it should be, don't ya think?
Afterall doesn't it really come down to... if you are breathing you're lucky if you ain't you ain't
But lucky is just an important tool for marketing people because it's just an attention getter.
Here's a story about the Lucky Alarm:
An enterprising grocer found a way to bring in plenty of new business to his store.
He had a huge alarm clock in the center of the store with its face covered.
The alarm clock was set for a certain hour.
When it went off, the customers in the store at that time didn't have to pay for the groceries being purchased at the moment.
Housewives soon took their business to the store with the lucky alarm clock.
Curious and hopeful, they prolong their shopping!
Smart bet this idea isn't restricted to grocery stores alone.
Here's what you might need to do online...
1)Each day starting the 12 days of Christmasl randomly select a time by hour and minutes using the Random.Org generator
2) The person who bought a book from you, made a blog comment or whatever that is closest to the randomly selected time will receive a free Christmas gift of some kind
Ok, so go out with this info and set that Lucky Alarm to go off in 2008, ok?
