For the love of Cthulhu, Trent Reznor, and Nathan Fillion
I am pleading to the good nature of all my friends on Tumblr, Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. Being a 40-year old gimp (or disabled person, for those of you who automatically think of the guy in the leather zipper mask on Pulp Fiction - I'm not that person), my whole life is reading and interacting with people on the Internet. Thus, I'm asking my friends, "For the love of all that is holy and good" (see above) to click on my link to help me gain points to win the Nook and autographed books.
They understand that my entire life consists of reading and perusing the Internet. It's not much of a life, but it's mine and it's all I can do at the moment. I'm asking for clicks through the use of humor (such as the link entitled, "Hey, look! Nekked pictures of me!"), good, old fashioned guilt ("remember that time I asked you all to fold me a thousand origami cranes?"), and pity ("Oh, me so gimpy"),
I really want the Nook because, with my disability, it is very painful to hold even a paperback book most of the time. I've been an avid reader since the 2nd grade and having that be taken away from me, along with every other aspect of my once-healthy life, is more than I can bear.
My multi-faceted approach deserves some points for style, in my very humble and gimpy opinion.
