+ This week has been pretty fun and busy. Thursday night we went to Cliff Bell’s for the Moth Story Slam, which I had never been to before. The theme was money and a few minutes before the show was supposed to start, the host said there weren’t enough names in the hat to go on so we needed to start digging through our brains to think of a story to tell. It is something I would like to do eventually so I was trying to think of a story related to money other than “I don’t have any and I am really bad at handling it,” but I was coming up totally blank. Finally there were enough names in the hat and the show got started. Once a girl started telling a story about a guy who offered her $1,000 to take a dump on his chest, it hit me like lightning – a story, that is. Nothin’ like a poop story to get your creative juices flowing. My friends kept telling me it wasn’t too late to put my name in there, and I highly considered it because it is a story I have told a million times – and involves money AND my dog’s butt – but I couldn’t get up the courage to do it. I don’t even know if they would have let me since the show already started. Either way, I kind of regret not trying because it’s a story I am really good at telling. Maybe I will blog the story, even though some of you have probably heard it since I know I have written about it on previous blogs.
+ Today we are going to the St. Patrick’s Day parade downtown. For some reason I have never been to it, even though I love St. Patty’s and live 5 minutes from Corktown. Good thing I have my to look the part. It’s a toss-up between that and my green ‘Merica shirt. Josh has a matching one so maybe we will do that and see how long it takes us to get beat up.
+ Oh! I almost forgot. I’ve decided to give away free ad space for the time being. You can get them here and use the code GINGERMANDY for a 100% discount.
Here are some links from the past few weeks.
+ The four tattoos you need to stop getting right now. I love this whole blog.
+ How to get great product photography with your smart phone and PicMonkey. One of my biggest turns offs on Etsy is shops with horrific product photos. There is no excuse! If you take pride on your product, you don’t need expensive equipment to get nice photos.
+ Have you ever had a missed connection in your own home?
+ Palate cleanser – a chart on the various varieties of vegetables.
+ Modern celebrities in famous paintings. Love this.
+ Gender is a spectrum beyond pink and blue. Stop obsessing over colors, parents-to-be on Facebook! Your baby isn’t going to give a shit if his room is “too feminine.”March 10, 2013
