AHHHH!!! Happy happy happy happy day!!!!
Just got off a call with effinggear.com – and dude, they’re totally gonna hook me up with a pad! Straight up! Here’s what went down …
So, like a month ago Polly from @dustycpollyd told me about this clothing company called Effing Gear. She showed me their sticker logo, and I freaked. It’s sassy, and rad. (Kinda reminds me of Twitter’s naughty step sister logo. RAWWRRR!!) I asked her about the company, she said oh – lemme email them and tell them about you and see if they’re interested in something; I don’t really know what – but let’s just see.
I honestly just put it out of my mind, as with most things – this space is moving so fast that we’re all just doing our own thing. A few weeks or so later, we hung out and she was wearing her Little Effing Apple shirt. I asked her about it – and she goes OHH!!! These are the peeps with that sticker logo I showed you. I touched her shirt, and DUUDDEEEEE these things are soft. Like literally, I’ve never felt such a soft tee shirt without it being too soft and too sheer. I hate shirts like that because then you have to put a tank under ’em to wear them. Looks cool in the winter, but gets annoying in the summer.
She wears hers primarily to the gym, but I asked her if she ever emailed the dudes, and she said she had – but hadn’t heard anything back.
Again, I just sort of moved on … admired from a far if you will.
Then on this past Monday afternoon, I get an email from the owner saying he’s been scoping out the site and would love to talk to me about doing some promo. I was like OMMMGGGGG your timing is PERFECT!!! I’ve been getting super antsy still sleeping on a couch, and I really really really really wanted to get my own place. I said, well if I act as a brand evangelist for you, would you be interested in off setting that in exchange for rent?
Dude, they were so down they got all 311 and busted a move!
It’s also perfect timing because I wanted to switch some things up with my current OKC social experiment, and I could totally use their location based tees to integrate it into the experiment totally organically. Dude, it’s been 103 dates – something had to change.
So, yah! They’re down … I got a new home – just a sublet, super rad. 2 new roomies. One is some Norwegian supermodel, and the other is a spicy latina-esque chica. I can only imagine the fun the three of us are going to have – HAHAHAHAH!! EPIC!!!
I’ll be announcing my new social experiment next week – but I can’t BELLLIEEVVEEEE I have a HOMMMEEEE!!!!! Holy crap!!! What a ride this has been, but having a home page to come back to after all the traveling is certainly going to rest easy on my psyche.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG I am going to have my own bed!! BAHHHHH!!!!!
From the depths of my soul, thanks so much Effing Gear. You guys effing rock, and I can’t wait to play.
I really only have one more thing left to say …
HIT IT POINTER SISTERS!!!
