Well, this is one of the coolest things that ever happened to me this week.
You may notice that my username is now sporting a star. No, my username hasn't become the new town's sheriff; I just received a premium membership.
Not bought; received. And the story how is awesome.
I was perusing through my inbox, minding my own business when I found this:
This is Dome City, a picture by the extremely talented
. When I saw this picture, I went into the comments and did what any other man would do; I wrote a pun.
Yeah, if you're new, you should know that making puns in the comment section is kinda my thing.
In most cases, people see the comment, chuckle a little and get on with their lives. In some cases, I get a reply about how funny it was or some kind of gratitude like that. When I saw this picture, I wrote the first pun that came to mind:
"There's No Place Like Dome"
A pretty basic pun, in my opinion. But apparently, DA.com staff member
thought otherwise. Because nearly right after I posted the comment, I got a comment from her saying that they tweeted
the picture over on Tweeter, or whatever you whipper snappers call it these days, and said that my pun was so good they used it in their tweet. And she gave me a one month premium membership as a way to say thanks.
Geez, lady! This is like I was a waiter and you were a millionaire who gave me a $1000 tip!
So, until August 3rd, I am a premium member. This is more awesome than a bucket of carrots! However, I do have one question:
What the heck can I do with Premium Membership, anyways?
Also, does me asking that seem like I'm looking a gift pony in the friendship hole? I feel like I'm a guy who just a got a speedboat for his birthday and then looked at the friend who gave it to him and said "I live in a desert, you dunce."
But seriously, what can I even do with premium membership? I know it blocks ads. And that it lets you set up polls. But other than that, what else? Let me know, I never really had a premium membership in my 6 years here. Why, you may ask? Well, because--
A. I could never be asked.
And F. One thing I love about DA.com is that it isn't like games such as Club Penguin or that old Toontown game; all of the content that's offered to members is blocked off by non-members. So since DA.com never did that, I never really had a reason to by a premium membership.
But now that I have one, I wanna see what I can do with it. Who knows, maybe after this month, I'll end up loving it so much that I'll buy a new one.
So, my first act as a premium membership is to make a poll. A poll asking you guys what my next journal post should be about. I have a lot of ideas, both new and old, and I wanna see which of the ones you want the most.
Also, if you actually want one of my puns to use as, say, a line in a story, you could actually commissioned me 10 points for a pun.
No, I'm not joking.
And to Ms. Heidi the DA Staff; I can not say enough about how grateful I am for this present. You guys are amazing and keep up the good work.
And to :iconjoe-robert:: Dude, I may of gotten some membership thingy, but in my opinion, you got the bigger slice of the cake this time. Considering you got your art promoted on Tweeter.
It's hard to find publicly these days (or at least it is for me) and I congratulate you.
And until next time, this is Ruben Falcon, signing off saying "If Heidi was in my presence, I'd huggle her to death."
