    Friendship bracelet exchange; or, "this is redic"; or, Ann's still invited anyway <3

    Title explains it all. We're going to exchange some fucking bracelets and it's going to be awesome and we're going to be best friends FOUR LYFE. For more information on how this idea came to fruition, click this the lulzfest here.

    The benefits of a friendship bracelet exchange are as follows:
    1) Cheap (a few dollars for one bjillion yards of embroidery floss/thread at the local craft store.)
    4) Uncomplicated (the basic friendship bracelet is one knot tied a hundred times and still looks awesome.)
    7.6) Not a big time commitment (you can make one in 30 minutes or so while you watch TV.)
    e) The cheapest to ship (I think they can be mailed, surrounded in a piece of folded paper, in a regular letter envelope.)

    I figured instead of one-on-one exchanges we could do a big circular frisking of friendship. So I would send one to Ro, Ro would send one to Rodger, Rodger would send one to Michael Wong, and Michael Wong would send a chicken McNugget to Petra, and Petra would eat it and get food poisoning. And then send one to me.

    I'll post tutorial videos as soon as I find some (god forbid I actually have to make one myself.) Everyone's invited! But not really, I reserve the right to refuse forum trolls and people I just generally don't like; don't let that discourage you from at least signing up! I'd love to make some new friends via this exchange. =)

    My only stipulation is that I will not send a bracelet to someone who is not my friend. I don't want to cheapen the ~deep meaning~ behind these.

    A friendship bracelet once saved my life. I fell off a cliff and my arm caught on a branch. Nine hours later I was rescued by a wandering hippie. We are still pen pals to this day.

    I learned how to make something like this in Spanish class my sophomore(?) year. They were bad ass. Someone stole mine off my desk when I took it off to readjust a loose end.

    It was ridiculous, and went on for far too long.

    I could make one on your behalf. As I'm a macrame ninja, and have no friends.

    I'm in. But I will make massive, unnecessarily complicated friendship bracelets.
    What people are saying about me:
    "I'm sorry that you're so bitter."

    6g lobes (goal 4g/2g). 14g right nostril, vertical labret, and left helix. 16g navel. two smallish tattoos.
