“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” –Douglas Adams
A housekeeping post today in the TBU as I prepare for a Memorial Day weekend trip to Atlanta….
First, thanks to everyone who asked for a TBU hat, plus Sweet who got one for being the reigning Grand Exalted Champion of Thursday Pickin’. In lieu of a self-congratulatory two-year blogaversary post this year I decided to instead self-promote. If you consider ten hats that don’t direct you to the website which doesn’t earn any money in the first place promotion, that is, and I guess I do. Plus I thought/think it will be a kick to see where all the TBU name can travel–looking forward to the pictures you send in. I went first come/first serve on who asked for one, so if you didn’t get one I’m sorry.
One thing that honestly never occurred to me is that anyone would actually offer to pay for such a trinket. However there were several offers to pay, and two people suggested I do this again in football season with either more caps or T-shirts. So I’ll probably throw something out there when Thursday Pickin Season III kicks off and see if there is enough interest to order. It will be at cost. The hats run about 10 bucks, with postage, and I can do t-shirts for probably about 12. I have no interest in trying to earn maybe twenty bucks on merchandising. As one person emailed me, the TBU is kind of like a club and we’ll be the only ones around with this stuff.
Other than evolving into mass de minimus merchandising, the TBU has a new toy. My iphone now has an app called “Moby.” Moby allows me to take a picture with my phone and upload it directly to the blog. So beginning………..NOW……..a new feature will be these pictures. They will be accompanied by little or no text, but that doesn’t mean they don’t say anything so please comment on them if you have a thought to share. I have no idea what you may see, other than that it will in some way be interesting or amusing to TB. My posting schedule will remain roughly the same and sadly, so will the quality of the posts.
And this clip has almost nothing to do with any of the above. Almost.
The TBU hat will be my summer fashion accessory! I’ve been wearing it around the house getting it broken in for boat season. It will shade my fair skinned face well. Happy Anniversary to TBU! I can say I have enjoyed it since day 1.
I got my hat TB. Thx. It doesn’t sit well on my watermelon head but it will do for some pictures. Mine will be taking a trip to the MS State Fire Academy next month. I should be able to come up with an interesting picture from there.
Hold up – you’re coming to Atlanta and not even getting cupcakes?! You’re a damn fool if I ever saw one!
Congrats on two years TB. Your site provides me with yet another excuse not to do actual productive work—–and one cannot have enough of those kinds of distractions.
