My Wimpy Self

My Wimpy Self

Have you wimped yourself? I did, first thing this morning. See?

It started with Facebook, a quick scan of what’s happening (or the latest 15 happenings) and Jennifer LaGarde having wimped herself into… (see left).

I’ve been looking for a way to caricature myself, so this caught my attention, and I clicked over to http://wimpyourself.com/. It’s based on the movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, (“Its not a diary it’s a journal”) opening March 19 (“Holy Moly, how have I come to LEARN so much about this movie)..

OK, it’s viral advertising — and it worked for me. Through a typical kindergarten technique of change the pants, change the hair, change the chin, I wimped myself — and was grinning the whole way.

Hmmm, could you infect your virtual learning environments with this sort of viral engagement. “Pop! Jennifer just finished her essay. Wanna see it? ‘squeek! squeek!'”

If only I could get my wimpy self to stop scratching its butt…
