“Lil Gentleman” on the air!

So…the shopper segment that I sent my wunzees to went on the air this morning.  Its actually pretty funny, becasue the topic is “Ideas for Moms Hoping to Earn Extra Cash.”  So its a story about the economy and how we as mothers can make more money by selling crafts on Etsy.  Im a mom now! 🙂  I guess because I make baby clothes, I’ve got to be right? Well, its great exposure, and was fun to watch online.  You can too!  I can’t embed the video, but if you click on the link and go to the video footage on the top right, watch long enough, and you will see my onesie with a tie.  The “Lil Gentleman”.  She also links to my Wunzees Etsy shop, so thats awesome too…

Check it! She holds up my item longer than the rest! 🙂

western spaghetti

So through my internet trolling yesterday, I came across this guy’s stop motion videos.  PES film.  It looks like he does a lot of commercials, for Coin Star as well as Scrabble in particular. I highly recommend you peruse his YouTube channel. This non-commercial, entitled “Western Spaghetti” was my favorite that I saw yesterday.  My personal favorite part of his videos, is the use of candy corn for fire.

Stop motion animation requires a ton of patience. Thats all i can say. I dont know if I could pull it off.

things are happening

I swear. I know i havent written in a while, but I guess living the life that I have has been more important than writing about it.
1. Quit Smoking. Its been 5 days. Its a lot easier than it was last time, and I know i havent really been in a drunk bar situation yet, but so far so good.

2. Moving out of the BBH. This one is huge. Ive lived in my house for over 4 years now. Made some of my best friends through this house, and live with people I consider family. However, the time has come to move on, and evolve, and finally live with the man that I love. Just us. So come March 1, we will be out of the BBH, and some other awesome person (TBD) will move in and life will go on, and we will meet new people thru this new addition, and the BBH will continue to be my home away from home.

3. Got another hair cut. Eh, its short, cute and I thought I would share the news.

4.The Wunzees are kicking off. Ive sold 16 so far. Pretty cool huh? http://wunzees.etsy.com Have at it! Buy a gift! Make a request! 🙂

Thats it for now. Ill write more interesting stuff and more in depth introspection and shit like that later.

ready to relax

Two of the three roommates leave for the holidays today, and the third leaves tomorrow. That leaves Mick and I with a house to ourselves for over a week. Sweet. Whats even sweeter is the fact that we bought a 42″ LCD Television yesterday (our first joint purchase), and we gave each other part of our x-mas presents early. We obviously think the same. He bought me Super Mario Cart, and I bought him Lego Batman for the Wii. So basically, with the cost of the TV in mind…we dont need to leave the house at all the next few weeks. Well, maybe to eat. It will be nice to have the quiet of just us.
Im already in holiday mode mentally, but unfortunately have to work today, tomorrow and half of wednesday. Same goes next week too. Ahh well, ill take the break where i can get it, and just keep on accruing the vacation time for somewhere we want to go.
Happy Holidays everyone!

santa…bigger, badder, stronger

And so, as the holidays approach, so does the yearly debauchery known as Santacon.  In the 5 years I have lived in the city I have done it two times so far.  First year, I didnt know about it.  Second year, was my first year in my house…and I got initiated into Santacon.  Third year participated as well.  Last year I went to NY for the holidays on the same weekend as the madness, so I missed it.  This year however…I will be here.  Its Saturday.

Apparently, as the years go by, and more and more people realize that half the fun of living in SF is the crazy shit that goes on, like the Brides of March, Bay to Breakers, Urban Iditarod, other Laughing Squid fun, and Santacon, these events get too big for their britches.  So this year, they are having three routes.  I guess last year, they went to Oakland, and the ferry couldnt handle Santa, and many people got lost in the shuffle.  I guess many Santa’s stayed in the city anyway, and so with that…the multiple routes were born.  We haven’t figured out what one we are doing this year (my friends anyway), and so I guess it is still TBD.  The choices are:

Klassic Kringle—Santa hits Fisherman’s Wharf and other favorite hotspots (that will still have us). Suggested props: Signs (Elfcare for Everyone, Santas Demand More milk & Cookies, etc.) Celebrate Santa’s many corporate friends & partners by displaying your favorite sponsor on your suit.

Ho on Haight—Suggested props: “Ho on Haight” or “Ho on H8″ signs (think “No on 8”), drums, noise makers. Santa also asks that you bring presents for the poor unfortunate “homeless” children.

Mastrobation—The Mission and Castro are getting Married…Gay Married! Suggested props: It’s all about choice, so it’s up to you how you’d like to participate (assorted props and gifts are always appreciated).

Im pumped to do ridiculousness again.  For your perusal, here are photos from my past experiences. Ooooh…gotta remember to bring the point and shoot.  The D40 could be too big. Though the photos would be nicer…hmmm…

my week in movies

Thanksgiving vacation came and went.  Mick’s parents flew in, drove to LA with us, drove back to SF and then flew home yesterday morning.  Food was had, family was seen, turkey was eaten.  Same story as most im sure.  So…I will write a brief blurb on the movies I saw in this time, and what I thought.

Live Free or Die Hard – Friday night at my dads house.  Actually pretty entertaining.  It was more of a cyber-terrorism plot, but as per usual there was lots of firepower, explosions, a sexy Bruce Willis, and a “Yippie Kay Yaye Yay” thrown in for good measure.  Didnt hate it…actually liked it, but probably for the best I didnt pay to see it.
