Our Daily Affirmations

For the low, low price of $12.95, YOU can be told on a daily basis, even around the clock if needed, that you are wonderful, that you matter, that you are a success, all you have to do is order the special edition recording from this website!


...as an added bonus (and for less than the price of a Big Mac Meal from McDonald's), you can have your very own applause recording. Feel like the rock star that you are! Bask in the admiration and adoration of the masses! Feel the glow of success without ever leaving your sofa!

This has got me befuddled. It is a website that sells affirmation CDs. I guess that is okay, but seriously, does anyone really believe the insincere recordings of a stranger telling you how wonderful you are? Really? Now don't get me wrong, they sound sincere enough, but a faceless person who wouldn't know you if you walked up and bit them on the nose telling you that you are the greatest. I can't imagine that it would have much, if any, effect on a person's self esteem. I'm just contrary enough that that sort of thing would make me feel worse.

Be sure to listen to the sample affirmations on this page, as well as a sample recording of the soon to be yours applauding audience.


For those hard to buy for folks on your gift giving list, this will tell that special someone how wonderful they are and how lucky you are to have them. (There is also a sample recording available.)

Amazing, but it seems to me that if someone is that special to you, that you appreciate them to that extent, it would be so much better all the way around to look them in the eyes and tell them they are important to you how much you appreciate them.

But that's just me.

Saw that on Failblog and thought it HAD to be a joke. I appreciate you looking into it though and affirming that you can, indeed, make money off of ANYTHING.

You're such a doll, such a sweetheart, how lucky could your fellow be to have you around!
I'm sure you're just the best thing since they invented the wheel.
Gee whiz. You are an angel.

Okay. Enough of that shit. ;)

Well Jess, I have discovered that I haven't the talent to make money off of ANYTHING. I wish, oh how I wish...

Thank you Curmy, you made my day with your insincere flattery. :-)

OK, but where can we get the CD full of insults and put-downs? I have some people I want to send that one to. ;)
