Easily Amused

Posted by terrepruitt on February 28, 2018

Are you on Facebook? Do you actually post stuff or just look at other people’s stuff? Well, if you post stuff you may know this, already.  Although you can still see the effects if you click on the particular words, you might not have tried that, they just happen if you type. There are some “words” that cause fun stuff to happen on Facebook when you type them or click on them. I know it is an absolutely ridiculous thing but I love it. It makes me happy. In fact recently when I was typing an e-mail (yes, I am still on Facebook and I still type e-mails) I was disappointed because my e-mail was not doing the same thing that Facebook does.

I only know of four “words” (and I say “words” because only two are actually words) that result in fun animations that float up your screen. I bet there are more.

If you type “Congratulations” or “Congrats” and post it you will get a fun animation. You can also click on the word where someone else has posted it and the same animation will float across your screen. It is like a party. Balloons and confetti!

If you post “XO” or “XOXO” (not sure how many you can type, I’ve seen up to three – xoxoxo) a fun animation will float across the screen. This one is hearts. The same applies for all of them, you can type it or click on it if someone else has posted it and you will see the individual animation that goes with each word.

There is also “Rad” I am not sure if “Radical” works just like congratulations and congrats work. But with Rad there are flying blue thumbs.

And “BFF”, again, here I am not sure if you actually typed out “Best Friends Forever” if that would make the animation work. But BFF has hearts dancing on the screen.Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit

The text of the animation words is colored.  That way you can know which words will result in the fun stuff.  Congrats and XO look somewhat red, Rad looks pink, and BFF looks green.

If this type of thing makes you happy you too might be disappointed when typing these words in other places. There is no animation in e-mail – at least in my e-mail.

I am not sure, but I also think that when I look at my notifications I see hearts float up the screen when someone has liked (?) loved (?) one of my posts? Again, not sure, but I do think I have seen hearts. Sometimes it happens so fast I am not sure to which notification it is happening.

I also use Facebook several places so it could be that each place and version operates differently. I mean, I think FB updates the same, but some of my devices are so old they might not support the new stuff. So my animations could be all over the board.

I bet there are more words that have animations. Are there? Do you know of any other words (“words”) that when posted cause animations to happen?

Goodie Jar – Check In #22

Posted by terrepruitt on July 5, 2013

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia at the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Zumba, WeddingThis is the 22nd Goodie Jar check in.  I forgot to post a check in post last week.  So IF I had remembered this would actually be the 23rd check in since we started with a Good Things Jar, but since I forgot, this is 22!

How about a share?

This week it was really, really, really hot for our area.  I do not like heat at all.  I just melt.  So while I in no way consider the heat a good thing, I do feel very blessed and consider the fact that we did not lose our electricity at all — a very good thing.  Seems that in the last few heat waves we have had our power has been cut or we have had “brown outs”.  So that fact that we have been able to have fans on through out the heat wave was fantastic!  I put that in my jar.

I had an extra fabulous Nia Class on Tuesday.  It is always nice when students contact you after class to comment on their experience.

I had a fun time at the annual 4th of July party.  The hostess always does a great job with the food and this year was really good.  It was a small crowd so it makes for a more intimate evening where you actually get to have longer conversations than when you are busy trying to jump from person to person to make sure you get in at least a quick visit.

Time off with hubby is always a nice thing to add to the jar.

And for last week at least one good thing I added was a wedding.  Fun stuff!  These are photos from the photo booth at the wedding.

So what are the good things you’ve added to your good things jar in the past two weeks?
