I've been RAKed!

I know, I know...

Everyone ELSE writes (and apparently speaks) Ooh, ha ha! A pun. Get it? (Psst, look at the title of this blog.)

Everyone ELSE writes, "I got RAKed!" It is the same faux pas we all blindly accepted when America Online (AOL) first came into being and e-mail in-boxes started singing, "You've got mail!" No matter how many people say it or how long it goes on, it's still wrong. So I write it the way it should correctly appear in print (with the exception of contracting the "I" and "have," because I'm not a complete tyrant.) Here ends the grammar lecture.

What are RAKs? RAKs are Random Acts of Kindness. This acronym had popped up a few times on other people's blogs before I timidly asked Mr. Sunshine about it when it appeared on his blog.

He was terrific about explaining and even sent me The Obsession Kit as an Easter present. Honestly, chivalry may be hog-tied and stuffed in the back of a closet somewhere in this country, but Mr. Sunshine proves that it is not yet dead in his corner of the world. Here is a link where you can find out more about The Obsession Kit: where to buy it.

Can you believe that Ellie Lash RAKed me a few weeks before Mr. Sunshine did? I did remark about Ellie's wonderful kindness and generosity in Kindness Is Never Wasted, I just didn't know such things had their own Internet acronyms back then, ha ha! I can be slow on the uptake sometimes.

And here are images of the two delicious kits Ellie sent me just for sharing the recipe for Chocolate Coconut Balls! (For the record, the recipe really is that good. Try it, you'll see.)

With all this digital scrapbooking goodness waiting to be utilized, there is only one thing to say.

Better start scrappin'!

That's exactly what I say. No time better than the current moment to record your precious moments. Soon they'll just be a distant blur.

Just keep scrappin, just keep scrappin (to the tune of Darby in Finding Nemo).
