Put on your GEM SWEATERS

2

I love Leslie Hall and her Gem Sweaters. If you don’t know the story, she collects and models horrible bedazzled sweaters. She also has a website that will crack you up – plus it highlights her band Leslie and the Lys that sings about sweaters and other important midwest diva issues.

Her CD made me snort with laughter. I didn’t know she had a video online for the band’s song about Gem Sweaters:

Two nice updates on our family

0

First, we have signed a contract to move our webkinz blog to a network where we’ll be paid for our work. We are fairly excited about this and I’m thrilled to be able to let someone else handle the technical/server issues, as well as stop losing money on our blog, lol! Jeff says I have the golden online touch but mostly I just do what seems fun to me – and this time it was a great chance to do it with Hayley!

We are even paying Hayley to help on the blog now. It was too cute, we made her
interview for the job like a real job interview – Jeff wanted to get her teacher to write a recommendation. (I told her teacher and she laughed at it too and said she would have). Of course, she’ll make less than her allowance per post and will have to post over 70 words to actually make anymore so cross your fingers to see that actually happen!

Hayley is just thrilled that someone is going to pay her for “working”. It is a great early lesson in how this new economy works and how you can create something of value.

Second, on Wednesday before the UNC – NC State game we were listening to 850 the Buzz, the local sports talk radio station, on the way to soccer practice. Well some State fan insulted Tyler Hansbrough and Hayley got so angry. She demanded my cell phone and their number. I told her I didn’t now the number, hoping that would end it. Well next time the station ran the numbers, she wrote them down and demanded the phone yet again. I said I’ll give it to you if you know what you are going to say – and she was very clear about it.

So I called the station and talked to them. They said they’d consider putting her on the air but wanted to talk to her first. After a few minutes, they told her to hold on because they would put her on the radio right after the break. I had to remind her to be polite and not to curse (she is allowed to say ‘go to hell duke and state’ at home), as well as I didn’t want her to say ‘sucks’ but stinks was ok. I had this fear of her just going off!

She was a bit flustered at first but she got rolling like a pro and talked about how great Tyler is, how UNC is going to beat State and that they would win by 20. They LOVED her. They asked who do you watch sports and listen to the station with, your mom or your dad – she says, ‘my mom’. I loved that! They said it was the first time a nine year old girl called in to talk on the air.

I know the host of the program in passing and dropped him an email the day after. He said it was a great call and they enjoyed her doing it. Some posters on IC heard it too and loved it.

I’m just so proud of her – she has no fear of being out front of the pack.

Charm City Cakes from Ace of Cakes

0

I have so many more Baltimore photos to post but I had to post these three cool ones from Charm City Cakes. Charm City Cakes is the base for one of our favorite TV shows, Ace of Cakes on the Food Network. Hayley was dying to go visit it – you can’t get in but we took some fun photos outside.

Please ignore that I need my highlights done asap. I canceled my appointment when the chaos over Hayley’s finger happened.

Humorously, Hayley was convinced that every hobo, smoking person and random guy going into a bar all worked at Charm City – I guess b/c Duff and the bunch are a bit alt/rocker/punk/grunge looking. I finally just let her think they might in lieu of explaining what potentially was some unsavory characters!

70′s Super Special on YouTube

0

This has nothing to do with any of us except for my deep and abiding love all things 70s. YouTube has a two part classic video of ABBA, Andy Gibb and Olivia Newton John all performing together. Andy Gibb and ONJ! I love me some Andy Gibb (and all brothers Gibb). And yes, I’m a big ole dork.

Hayley is a ballgirl for a bunch of the UNC women’s basketball home schedule this year – at their request! She’s done two games so far already and coming home from one earlier this week, we drove by the kookiest thing on the street in Chapel Hill outside of our favorite restaurant … it was the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile.

Photo Gallery: Annabelle ATTACKS

No one can snuggle or smooch downstairs without Annabelle literally hurling herself between you and licking like crazy. She also enjoys combing and chewing on hair from above. Soon we’ll have new living room furniture and she can’t launch her aerial attacks!
