Subject:Off-topic: Rabbit Hole Day
Time:03:42 pm
My apologies for cross-posting this all over the place, but I thought you might like to be in on this:

I have created a community called rabbit_hole_day. Last year, there was an idea that I saw on LJ that piqued my curiosity:

January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carrol, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore.

I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2005 should be the First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that Thursday, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics.

Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunchmeat?

Let's have a day where nobody's life makes sense anymore, where any random LJ you click on will bring you some strange new tale. Let's all fall down the Rabbit Hole for 24 hours and see what's there. It will be beautiful.

This year, I have created a community for this project called rabbit_hole_day. Basically, there are two options for this project:

1) You can do all your entries in one day, or
2) You can do them over the entire three day weekend (Jan 27-29)

For the record, I'll be doing the second option, as I am going to use this for an idea for a project in the febnowrimo community. I expect most of you will just do the first one, though.

See you on January 27th!

Um... you prolly wanna update yer blurb to reflect that this is the second year (at least, people did things like this last year), and that this is 2006, not 2005. But it sounds fun!
