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.

Comments

  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.

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me. So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist. In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teac

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
