Yepper. I got me a shiny star badge and everything.
I found out I was a deputy on the way back from Starbucks this morning - they told me on the radio.
Apparently, there is a phone app that deputizes Austinites to cite their fellow citizens for illegally parking in handicapped spots. Yep, there's an app for that.
Now that I am deputized with this app, I'm going to go ahead and expand my authority to include issuing cybertickets for: people throwing cigarettes out of their cars, girls wearing their pajamas to Starbucks, people who drive on the shoulder in traffic jams because they think they're special, and also to the guy that wears only a white thong while he bikes around town.
I'm thrilled that I can start to clean up our town! What a great place this is going to be with Deputy Blue on the job!
I guess that poisoned apple thing struck a chord with a lot of you! I got lots of nice notes about it, and my friend Lynne sent me the CUTEST tutorial by Amanda Corbet for making a 3D apple with the heart punch. I had to make one.
I'm hosting the Ways to Use It challenge on Splitcoast today, so I used the apple to challenge people to use "space" around their card with a 3D or popup element. If you want to play along, the keyword is WT348.
To make Amanda's cute apple, just punch out 25 hearts. Trim off the bottom, fold them in half, sponge them with Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler and stick them together. It's just as cute freestanding as it is on a card. The stem and leaf are from the bird punch.
Hey - don't sass me. I'm a Deputy! :)
