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 that 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 pqyched 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.

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.

Took awhile... Here's an infographic of MF's first year

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in numbers. Diapers (with and without poo), bottles and photos taken are the lines in the background. The markers are milestones. The ones on the top are regular milestones you'd see on a chart and the ones on the bottom are things he did that were firsts. Hint... Use the toggle full page at the lower right of the image... I'm not sure why zoom.it is making it all bitmappy but it's pretty readable. Once I find something better to show this I'll update the image. I'll also be adding to this. I have a lot more I can put on it but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... Check back in 15 years.

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 teacher…
