Okay then... will everybody who won a prize or ordered a T-shirt please just drop by my apartment and pick up your order? Yeah, that would be great, thanks.
No, seriously, anytime from 4:30 to 9:30, Monday-Friday (weekends by appointment only).
Packaging all these T-shirts is a massive chore. You have no idea. At first I was just digging through the boxes to find the size I needed for each order, but then I decided it would be faster to spread them all over the dining room so I could find them easier. Of course, that meant I had to scrub the tables and chairs to be sure everything stays clean. Then I had to sort through the shirts, but didn't have room for them all, and ended up stacking them up in the living room as well. So now shirts have taken over my apartment.
And then there's the matter of having to fold all the booklets.
And of course each shirt has to be wrapped in plastic to protect it during shipment.
And I haven't even gotten to the labeling and postage yet! Next year it's going to be sticks of gum or something that can fit in an envelope.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Ahhh, but it is going to be sooo much fun when I send you pictures of me with my blogography t-shirt standing next to various celebrities..(Well, members of a-ha!!)
t shirts fit in envelopes! Big ones, granted, but they do!
I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf!
Oh yes Sayuri… and if Mags, Pal, and Morten want me to send them a shirt, just let me know! 🙂
The post office has bags that would work… but I worried about the shirt rubbing around in there, and decided to use tight-fitting boxes to keep the shirts in good shape.
Wow, you certainly seem to be doing this professionally 🙂 . Would love to come over and pick mine up in person but I don’t have the time or the money 🙁
I hope it’s a dreary, rainy day so you’re not sacrificing a groovy riding day. *lie to me if it’s a nice day… I can’t handle the truth*
Thanks for your efforts.
Next year I suggest you take advantage of child labor. I have two very bright kids who can follow directions (sometimes) and you can ship me a big box of assorted shirts I can package & send to everyone east of the mighty Miss & Europe.
Just a thought.
Ditto on the hope for crappy weather where you are.
Thank you very much Dave!!
Guess next year we all gonna win online gift certificates. 🙂
Umm. Yeah. That is a hell of a lot of work you got there brother! If your weather is anything like mine today you are not missing much by being outside.
ryc: There was actually a third Swayze movie that could have made my list, Youngblood. I was suffiently sure that most people have not seen that one so I made the executive decision to leave it out…
Anyway. Take care!
This will solidify your legendary status though. 🙂
Aww Dave… booklets? You’re too much.
(The reason you haven’t gotten my money order is 1: I am an idiot and can’t figure out where to purchase money orders.
2: I’m out of town and this hampers… everything I do, basically.)
No problem… your shirt has been reserved, so whenever you get a chance is fine (post offices and banks sell money orders, as do some grocery stores).
