You Can Wear Me

When I was a boy I had one dream... That people would some day wear a shirt named after me. Well maybe I didn't have one dream. I guess it would depend on my age.

At one point I wanted to own a pet store and breed gerbils. It's unclear if I'd carry animals other than gerbils but I'm guessing I wanted to be known as the "Gerbil Guy."

And then at one point I wanted to make those big lego constructions, and at one time I wanted to be an astronaut, a marine biologist, a zookeeper and more.

But we're here to talk about my dream to have a shirt named after me.

Well I have yet to achieve that... But I do now have a softshell jacket named after me.

Remember that time I wrote an open letter to Moosejaw telling them why I was a Human of Interest? Well if you don't you can click on that link in the last sentence. But if you do you can read on.

I was told a bit ago that they do in fact think I'm and HOI (but we already knew that) and I'd be getting a softshell jacket named after me... And it's available now... The Kenny Friedman softshell jacket.

Freaking named after me.
What you're going to want to do is buy one for every member of your family... Because, well, it's named after me...

And if that's not enough you can get a Smonk You shirt. My store is still kind of in beta (and probably always will be) because I haven't filled out the breadth of gear... But since you're already psyched about wearing me I thought I'd give you more chances.

The words appear backwards in a mirror... It's magic.
Here's what people would be saying about my shirt if I had asked them for a quote:
Morgan from The 818 "This would look awesome on that homeless guy I see in the park."
Mandy from Harper's Happenings "Now I have a new rag to clean up spills with."
Mae from Parenting in Progress "It's made of cotton."
Jen from her blogs but mostly twitter "I'd wear it to buy cheese but I'd be afraid someone would see me."

And now that I'm done with the post I realize that I never wanted to have a shirt named after me... Well not until I heard of the Moosejaw Human of Interest thing.

  1. Love it Kenny. It's probably a good thing you didn't become known as "The Gerbil Guy" since that has come to have some less than desirable connotations, (thanks alot, Richard Gere). And Moosejaw could have named something a little less expensive after you. Oh well.

  2. Are they sending you one? I mean, that's the least they can do. Also? Why are there no reviews showing up. I know there should be at least one. Heh.

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
