So do you collect sparkpoints? Every day I log on to spark and check out a few favorite places - read the articles if they seem relevant - even the ones I've read before - I don't mind a re-read. I follow several blogs and often comment on them. post my own. And then then I hit the start page and see how many points I have.
And then I find myself doing Something Else if I don't have 25 points, just so I can spin the bonus wheel? I mean - what the ....?
I can't figure out why I do this - it can't possibly matter to me or to anyone else. Do I do it because it's there? And because it's fun to spin a dial. I'm not a gambler - I don't even buy lottery tickets - not even for the gift basket from the Fireman's Auxiliary. I just give them a $5 and say keep the tickets.
But I do it every day. Even when I am traveling. But that's just to be sure I get credit for logging in to Spark for that day. Because I have a goal to reach 2,000 days in a row - what does he call it? Chris Downey? A streak. Yeah. I want to streak into spark for 2K days.
But ... what a funny thing to want. And what a funny girl I am to want it.
