Describe me in one word? Messy! lol
With the exception of MS Access, I don’t think any of the Office programs can sort items randomly. The users could be imported into a database and sorted, but since you have so many subscribers, it would make it…erm…what’s a good word…ODD to try to print them all up since by default, databases output in a list (one per line)…but with a little work, I suppose it can be tweaked to print up like you have them printed now…
And now I’m rambling…
For the non alphabetical dart throw. Make a cube that’s tied to the ceiling, then spin it around and throw darts, then it won’t be as alphabetical. Either that, or I will wear a t-shirt and jump around and you can throw darts at me. I will suffer for making it random.
Dear Lady Val,
How can we be sure you’re not really a dart player extraordinaire,picking your targets with pinpoint precision?May I suggest a “Wheel of Fortune” type spinning board to allay my suspicions of “the fix is in”!Just funning ya,I’m just really disappointed I haven’t won yet. 🙂
Oh, and besides unintentionally using the phrase “does the trick” in two consecutive sentences, I forgot to mention that I’d need to actually have a list of your subscriber names to generate the list. Unless you want me to send you the script. It wouldn’t be hard for you to run, probably.
wait wait wait!! what did you just say? you mean I can have a program download the subscribers names??? It took me HOURS to go page by page and copy/paste almost 11,000 names. If you showed me a way to have a program do it for me, you’d be my hero!
I don’t know about that. It doesn’t look to me as though you can view Val’s subscriber list. If there were a “subscribers” link next to the “friends” link at the top of her profile, I’d agree with you, though. It’d be a matter of going through and parsing the pages of subscribers to extract the names. Which would be a lot easier than copy-paste-rinse-repeat.
I agree with misterman about hitting the m’s. lol. I am trying to think of a word to describe YOU Val, and so far I have introlovbeautalgenrous. Translation: introspective, loving, beautiful, generous and humorous. HA! One word for me is grateful…for another one of your wonderful vids! Can’t wait for your TV show. I am still waiting and holding my breath because I KNOW it is going to happen! : )
Thank you Val for sharing your amazing being and insights and your exquisite playfulness – you are deffinitely in touch with your inner ‘little girl’! And thinking out of the box a little on the shuffling of names. You could at least rearrange the sheets on the dart board! Love you -Dennis
Dearest Val, your complex, beautiful mind fills me with joy and wonder. You have come a long way. I don’t think you need Dolly to cover your back anymore. Don’t be too surprised when people fall in love with you, especially if you develope a reliable three point shot. I hope you didn’t go Babe Ruth on yourself with those burgers. See you next Sunday and hopefully on live cam some day.
Ha Ha Ha… The box thing had me rolling! Here’s an idea, how bought.. you use the box to mail your self to me:-):-):-) I would love to have you paint a mural on my wall*___~
BTW, I changed my name to Nobody… PAINTING PLEASE;-D
If not your self, can you mail me those cheeseburgers?!?
You always raise interesting points, and illustrate them well. So your air conditioner is as big as you? It’s funny how quick we are to label others and how infuriating it is when people do it to us. Can you really eat that many burgers? I’ve always tried to occasionally do things that are seemingly out of character just to keep people on their toes. Your jump shot needs work.

aww. i stayed all night for this video and suddenly i felt asleep. and woke up 9 hours later 😦 now my comment won’t even get a reply from u. anyway, great video & painting! u made me look at life in various way that i’ve never thought before. i would like to make a request. could u make a video which reveals more about yourself? things like your origin, age, race and so on. i’m dying to know! 😉
oh btw, suggestion about randoming the names. u could just cut a paragraph of the names and paste it on another page. cut & paste several times and then put the pages on random order. plus, u could blind folded your eyes and throw the dart. but judging from the way u throw the dart, i think it’s random enough. it could has landed anywhere! ;p if i were to describe u in one word. it would be “charming” =)
weee, thank u for your respond. now i feel like there is some kind of real connection between us. giving me the hope that someone as wonderful as u are real and exist in this world =) p/s: the scene u’re trying to close the lid of the box from the inside is toooo cute!
i think noone will ever get to know every pieces of the puzzle. no matter how close is that person to you, there will always a fraction of ourselves that we will always keep it as secret. for me, the important thing is that people sees us for whom we want them to see. don’t you think so?
hysterical! Val in a box, limited edition and such.
well judging by the way the names are listed it seems like it’d be pretty easy to write a quick little program to randomize them. that “cut and paste” method makes sense but with 9 pages it could get pretty laborious
Val, i love you! You’re so original, funny and fresh. Every week i can look foward to a new and different video full of your witty jokes and singular comedy. Not only is it funny, but inspiring and artistic. Thank you.
Resently I was let down by a YouTube star. William Sledd used to be fun and fresh as well. As of late though he has just been self absorbed and only making fun of people. Now you are my sunshine of the week. Yay!
Hi Val, Loved this video and your painting too! I have been wondering about your walls, seeing a bit of them in several videos. What did you do with your walls??? Looks like you had some fun, or? 🙂 Looks as we have the same blinds… They are nice… 🙂
Noooo, not too crazy, it just looks fun to me! Watching your vid’s, even the walls makes me smile! And, take my word for it, I have really needed encouragement lately – and you have done it! So at least 1,000,000 thanks! 🙂 Too bad I can’t buy a painting now, but luckily owning one is not the only way of enjoying one… Or maybe I’ll get lucky one Sunday? 🙂
haha, i look forward to everysunday just to go on youtube and have you make my day better!!! if you want something more random, you should pick names from a hat or something, but that would be a lot of work to cut the names out and everything… 0.0
wow, that is a BIG BOX!!
I LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT WEEK!!!
Integrity… I think you need to go on line and look for a scrambler… perhaps give everyone a number and then have the numbers scrambled… just a thought! It takes time and patience to ‘truly’ know anyone… in person or by virtual reality. Blessings…E!
A Val-In-The-Box?! NICE! I really like the direction your videos have been heading. I am confused though, you said it was hot last week, but last week weren’t you walking in the snow? The theme of your painting this week is great! I did shoot a video based on something you wrote to me, but I haven’t edited it yet. I’ll post it soon though. Have an awesome week, Val!
I still cant find the word that defines me…guess I am many words, messy, playful, romantic, but…the one thats suits me better is SMILE, i guess soo!!!
I cant believe the winners never claim their paintingsssssssssss!!! I would be sooo excited!
I have no clue how to describe myself in one word. And chances are as you mentioned, what I see myself is most likely entirely different from how others see me.
Love the new painting, and still hoping that dart hits my name on of these days 🙂
Have you got the shuffling sorted out yet?? The only way I can think of is to put the names into Excel (or Calc for us OpenOffice users), then in the next column put random numbers =rand() … then sort the data according to the random numbers, then export back to a text file… sound easy enough??? If you want, you can send me the file and I will shuffle for you (might just add a few hundred more greenvals in there..hehe…)
