It’s time for the Pinteste Round-up! (I feel like we need a theme song for this– someone get on that, yeah?)
But before I get to your brilliance, I have a couple of announcements:
I’ve been working on the weekly newsletter to make it more useful for you because I don’t want it to just be a recap of the blog posts for the week (although it will still be that). SO to sweeten the pot for all my subscribers, I’ve added a Pintester signature cocktail recipe that you can only get if you subscribe, and– starting this week– I’m going to be doing a monthly drawing where you can win a craft made by my own two hands! Exciting, I know. You could be the proud owner of a sock snowman or a Borg spine. For serious.
So, if you’re not subscribed to the weekly newsletter already, get on that shit.
“The Dude Abides” Party
If you are in North Carolina and are free this Saturday, come paint your nails with me. I’m serious.
I’m going to be a guest at the North Carolina Museum of Art’s The Big Lebowski “The Dude Abides” Movie Party! They’re going to do an outdoor screening of The Big Lebowski, but doors open early and there will be food trucks, white Russians, and ME! I’ll be leading participants in creating a manicure inspired by the Dude’s hobby-of-choice, bowling. And I’m bringing my trusty video camera, so there’s a chance you could end up on an episode of Cocknails!
Come on out. It’s gonna be awesome. Get details and tickets here!
Ok, I’m done horn-tooting now. Here’s the awesomeness you came up with in the comments this week.
I’m really glad you guys liked Andris. She is a writer. That’s why she has such a way with words…
Ellysa • …I’m officially trying to figure out how to fit “well, that went over like a fart in a spacesuit” into my daily conversations as much as possible. Oh wait, I’m a preschool teacher and talk to 2 year olds all day. So there goes all the fun.
I got some tips on how to fix my nuts.
Adrianne Stone • Your nuts look a lot larger than their nuts. Maybe size matters? (giggling like a 14 year old over here)
And this is an ode to the Pintestes:
Sunrea Linnae Clayborn • I just want everybody to know that I was upset by the comments section of a totally unrelated site and I was like, “Man, I need to cheer up and see some nice, friendly, funny comments.” So I came here. A wonderful, hilarious post about nuts and then the nicest comments sections on the internet. You all deserve an award, especially Pintester. <3
Thank you, Sunrea, and I agree that all you Pintestes deserve an award. Sadly, you’ll have to settle for a signature cocktail recipe and a chance to win a crappy handmade craft…
Llama spit • I do the holding stuff with my toes while I braid thing, too. You’re not alone! Right on, toe sista! I send you a high five, only with my foot. And now I’m totally gonna have to ask my husband to find me nuts, because I want to carry them around with me.
Thanks for making me feel a little less like a freak!
A little warning if you’re planning to make pico de gallo:
Emily1022 • All that jalapeño is gonna hurt like a bitch coming out.
(Worth it, IMHO.)
Thanks for all the comments this week guys, and I hope to see some of you at The Dude Abides party! (If you’re coming, tweet at me with #ncmadude and I’ll look out for you!) Also, don’t forget to sign up for the weekly newsletter! Free cocktail recipe and chances to win crap– yay!
(Just a note: If you are a blogger, be sure to add your blog URL to the Disqus profile you’re using to comment here. That way I can link to your blog! I wanna give you the love, yo.)
