Red Oxide: Two months after spending nearly a thousand bucks on a new printer and supplies so that we can print much larger giclees we’re still selling about ten 5” x 7” postcards for every single 12” x 16”. Bummer. At this rate we’ll have the thing paid off by the time we start paying Jessie’s college tuition.
Brilliant Orange: I accepted an invitation to participate in my brothers’ fantasy football league. Despite the fact that it’ll make us communicate more often I’m not looking forward to having to mull over mundane statistics every week. Plus I’ll end up rooting for some team I hate just so their running back who happens to be on my fantasy team can score 5 touchdowns to help me win.
By the way, I need a new team name. My old name from bachelor days (BenWah Balls) is a little too risque with me being a good family guy and all these days. Please give me any suggestions you might have. I'll try to think of some kind of clever prize to send to the winner.
Cadmium Red Light: The new puppy is still cute but the honeymoon is somewhat over. He was really great as a camp dog for Ben last week but while living in a pop-up camper for five days, he evidently accumulated quite a bit of energy. In the past 12 hours he’s torn a hole in my favorite koozie and then chewed off a corner of my Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Did I mention that it was leather bound? I think the little Chihuahua is about to find out what a good old American football punt is like…
Cerulean Blue: I have a feeling that the recent BlogHer conference has created some kind of secret sorority internet sisterhood! Am I the only one whose noticed how many male bloggers have been dropped off blog rolls the last two weeks? I’m equating this to something like when the ladies burned their bras back in the 1970s. Should we of much testosterone be scared?
Actually that conference sounded pretty cool and a lot of fun. There's obviously so much still to learn about blogging. Maybe if I take Ben with me next year the ladies might include me in the festivities?
Just a reminder that there are now less than three days left to place a bid on our latest artwork!
