1. “The Dude Abides” party was pretty rockin’. Hoping to have a video up about that tomorrow… maybe… if I can get my camera(s) to cooperate. Special shout-out to Karen G. who came up and introduced herself and said she was there just to see ME! I may have teared up a little. Thank you Karen!
2. There is still time to enter this week’s newsletter drawing for the nut bracelet! Check out the instructions at the end of the newsletter, and if you’re not already subscribed, be sure to do that. You can’t win unless you’re subscribed to the newsletter!
3. My next appearance is at the Type A Conference in Atlanta this month! I don’t know how many of you are fellow bloggers, but if you are, Type A promises to be an awesome blog conference. (It’s sold out, but you can still get on the waitlist.) I’ll be talking about optimizing your images for Pinterest in a session on Saturday afternoon, so if you’re going, find me! I’d love to talk with you!
Also, if you’re local to Atlanta, drop me an email if you have any interest in a meet-up while I’m there (Sept 27-29). We could totally hang out at a bar for a little while or something. I’d be down for that, yo.
And now, Pintestes, here’s what you’ve been up to in the comments this week.
I jokingly asked for a Pinteste Round-up theme song last week, and a couple of you rose to the challenge. I never should have doubted you.
KimJ • My submission for a theme song:
Where’s the place that you can be
As crude as sailors on the sea?
The Pintester is right for me,
It’s great to be a Pinteste!
It’s the Pinteste Round-Up!
This has a fantastic ring to it– like the Spongebob Squarepants theme song or something. Love it!
And here’s another one:
jadestormcloud • I misread the request for a theme song & wrote one for your blog rather than for just the Round-Up. Oh, well. Here it is anyway. It’s to the tune of “Sledgehammer.”
I could test your craft project
if you send me the right supplies
I can follow recipes perfectly
OK, that’s a total lie
All you do is pin it
I’ll test anything you see
I could make a cocktail
but I drank the vodka yesterday
I could do a manicure, sort of
Which friend should I film today?
I want to be… your Pintester
Why don’t you read my blog
Oh, let me be… your Pintester
This will be my testimony (heh, teste)
I will make your fruitcake
And smear honey on my face
Oops, I killed the fruitcake
But the honey mask sure tastes great
I want to be… your Pintester
Why not subscribe below
You’d better call… the Pintester
To put that to the test
I’m gonna be… the Pintester
And you can be Pintestees
I’m your… Pintester
Just throw more booze into it
Pin… Pin… Pintester
I tried to make it (I tried to make it)
Failed that pin (Failed that pin)
I fucked it up (Fucked it up)
Won’t make that again (Won’t make that again)
Oh won’t you pin for me (Pin for me)
and I will test for you (Test for you)
pin for me (pin for me), I will test for you
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Test for you
all of you
There’s a newsletter, too
Gonna do a roundup
Pintestee roundup, hey
Come on, come on, see what works
Come on, come on, buy my shirts
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
I’ve been testing some cookies
Making penis-shaped cookies
It’s what I’m doing, doing
All day and night.
Dude. Dude. Amazing.
Thank you both for those fabulous submissions!
I hated on white crayons a little bit, and someone rightly pointed out that white crayons are people, too (or something).
HemeraDemeter • Stop hating on the white crayon.
Consider me schooled.
Also, the crayon didn’t burn long, so I got a comment on that, too.
Theresa Brundage • Well, that lasted about as long as a Nazi at an Ark opening.
Speaking of animated gifs, I used some in my tiara post on Friday.
Allie • The tiara was way cute on you! You just need to add some bling, but something better than the flower on the original pin. Oh, and Moriarty!! Only, can you use a gif of Sherlock next time you talk about making things stiff?
Hell yeah I can.
I’m not sure why more than one of you went to French maid with the tiara thing, but you did.
SuzieQueue • You can add it to your French maid outfit for sexytimes! Wait… is that just me?
No, Suzie, it wasn’t just you. Guess that one will be a popular giveaway in one of these newsletters coming up… If you win that one, please do me a favor and only send me rated G pictures of you wearing it. I can’t have your significant other gettin’ all jealous-pants because I contributed to your sexytimes.
Thanks, as always, for your brilliant, witty, hilarious comments. You are the lights of my life, Pintestes, and I sort of want to lick you all.
(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.)
