April Fool’s Day is celebrated on April 1st, and is the one day a year when everyone should keep their guard up. Anyone can become the target or someone’s pranks and tricks. But unlike in years past where pranks were typically of a “real world” nature, nowadays it’s becoming more common for people to use the Internet to play pranks on one another.

      Find funny pictures on the Internet and send the links to your friends and co-workers. You can either email the links, or you can send them via an instant message.

      Ask someone to look at a “document” you’ve been working on by sending it to them as an attachment. What you put in the document is up to you, but it should be something slightly shocking (pretend divorce papers, a last will that includes you giving a fortune to the recipient of the email)

      Send links for Internet games to friends and co-workers. There are a number of different games that are designed to get those who play to relax, only to startle them with a scary image and a loud sound.

      Create a bogus web page that informs the people you send to it that they’ve won a contest–the bigger the prize the better. Have them fill out their information on a bogus entry form. Once they complete the form you can have an automated email message sent to their inbox informing them of the prank!

      Learn from those who have already done a number of Internet pranks. Websites like offer ideas for a wide variety of pranks, including a few that are perfect for the Internet.


Tips & Warnings


    Try to limit your April Fool’s Internet pranks to those that are easy to load on computers. This makes it easy for pranks to be more universal. If the prank you wish to play involves a lot of video, imagery or sound then you run the risk of having it take too long to load.


    If you plan on using a shock site to pull an April Fool’s Internet prank on someone, do not send it to them at work. Some shock sites are incredibly offensive, and people looking as such materials at their desk can end up being terminated. Don’t get someone fired for a simple prank.


Special Kitty of the Day for March 16th

Eve, the Cat of the Day
Name: Eve
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Bengal mix
Home: West Vancouver, British Columbia
Eve is beautiful, outspoken, rambunctious, intelligent, athletic, creative, a skillful hunter and very helpful – at least that’s what she tells me accurately describes her wonderful purrsonality. I must agree – she is all that and more. We love her because she sweetly embraces all that life has to offer; because she is the most affectionate kitty we have ever known and because she chose to spend her life with us.

Eve was a rescue who had been adopted by one of our neighbors from a local Vancouver organization. In May 2006 Eve walked into my garden and stayed. After discovering who her adoptive parents were and attempting to take her back home on numerous occasions, it became clear to all parties involved that Eve had chosen her home. (Did I mention she is very opinionated?) Our neighbors very graciously surrendered Eve into our care and she has been with us ever since.

There have been challenges along the way but none that we could not overcome and today our lovely Eve has successfully managed to completely master our lives. There is no doubt who in our home is the Alpha – she has it all in the bag. Eve has added another dimension to life as we knew it and we are only too happy to accommodate her. She is, without a doubt, our most precious baby.

The Vexation Box Spell

The Vexation Box Spell

This spell is for dealing with someone who is more of an annoyance than a threat, someone who really gets on your nerves or stresses you out by intruding in your life or violating your space. It is for someone you have already asked to stop but who persists in bothering you. It is not a spell to use on someone whose actions you object to within their own life or space. You need:

  • a box

  • herbs for protection

  • two heads of garlic (or more, if you are using a big box or dealing with a group of people)

  • a photograph of the person, or their name written on a piece of paper

Put everything in the box. Cover the box and give it a good hard shake, mentally yelling at the person to modify the behavior that annoys you. Put the box away, in a drawer or up on a shelf. Take it out and give it a hard shake, yelling at them, every time they annoy you. After the first week or so you should seldom need to shake the box. Throw the box away in a few months, when the garlic begins to spoil.
