Rules of the Game (Girl Version): Day 3

January 27, 2011

Remember when I said that I don’t like to leave the house? I also don’t like making what-some-may-call prank phone calls.

Mission 1: Adopt the Caveman Hygiene Method
I was told not to shower or shave, which means that I followed my ordinary grooming habits. I’m guessing that this is something I’ll need to work on as this experiment continues.

Mission 2: Speak with Confidence
So far, this was my favorite mission. Speaking with confidence is something I need to work on. I had to pick three activities to work on my voice. I decided to do the exercises that would help me speak louder, speak in declarative sentences (because I ), and also the

Here are my recordings:

Do I have a storytelling voice?

Did I sound convincing when I asked you – who hates fish – to come eat sushi with me?

Can you tell that I’m pretending my voice is a football?
No shouting. 3 steps.
Football voice. 3 steps.
6 steps.
Across the room.

Mission 3: Find Mr. Moviefone
Yeah, so staying in the house to do these activities is not all it’s cracked up to be. This activity entailed calling random local numbers and asking the people who answered to recommend a movie for me. No thank you!

Instead, I went up to people at the gym. Here are the movie recommendations I got:
- The Social Network (“It’s kinda intellectual.”)
- Couples Retreat (“Better than you’d think.”)
- Funny People (“Underrated.”)

One person ran away. One person insisted this was some sort of practical joke.

Extra credit mission
I forgot to blog about the meditating exercise (mp3) that I had to listen to yesterday. Probably because I fell asleep to it… I was supposed to listen to it again today but I’m too tired and I need to get work done and don’t have time for a nap. O’well.

I’m turning into such a player. (Just kidding.)

    Nice. I think when you do the sushi thing, you should try to smile when your saying it. I think that might help. Maybe?

    In order to provide you with the best service
    the lender should return your phone calls in a timely fashion and answer any questions you may
    have thoroughly. Many people may be able to also reduce the number of years that
    they sign up for with their first mortgage. Those that are seeking a
    Mortgage Ireland opportunity will have to vouch for steady savings
    buildup as one criterion the First Time Buyer Mortgage
    program. However, the county has changed the rules to allow potential homebuyers to find a foreclosed home anywhere within the Travis
    County border. Please select the type(s)
    of Alerts you would like to review:. To begin with, they grant flexible finance guidelines which permit buyers having low credit history
    to get approved.
