Bearily I Roll Along

My two latest acquisitions from the Sebastien Millon Bear Collection of Fine Ts.

I was so excited to come home from work yesterday and find a)Disc 1 of My So-Called Life, and more importantly, b)a package from the desert wilds of Arizona. Two more bear shirts for me! Today I am wearing the red "Floating is Fun" shirt and everyone here is loving it. I am saving "Je mange les petites enfants" for when I do a storytime or some other children's program. Hopefully someone in there will know some French...although the visual is pretty clear. :-) Anyway, I think that most of you who stop in here also stop in at Sebastien's blog Chronically Sick, But Still Thinking I Think. However, if you don't or if you haven't lately, get on over there and have a looksie. He creates amazing art that is fun in a bit of a twisted way. After you finish here, of'll just take a sec.

Oh, I wanted to mention something about item a), My So-Called Life. Angela was the good girl going over to the dark side with the 'bad' kids a full five years before Lindsey Weir did it in Freaks and Geeks. I hadn't quite put it together before, but since I just recently finished watching Freaks and Geeks again I was able to make the connection. I'm quick like that. Apparently, I am drawn to that sort of thing, as these are two of my favorite tv series. Sadly, I think I am most like the two sort of mildly pathetic, left behind best friends (Sharon and Milly, respectively), wondering how things suddenly changed. I'm one of the most easily flummoxed people I know :-)

One last little tidbit...I know you are all deeply concerned with this, so please note that 3GirlKnight, Ananda Girl, and NoRegrets have chosen the finalists in the coming week's Dancing with the Stars finale. I wish you all the best of luck. Start thinking about how you'll spend those 25 bucks at Target if your "celebrity" "dancer" takes home that coveted mirror ball trophy!

Yay!!! so happy you are enjoying the shirts :) Can't wait for you to freak out the kids hehe...

Thanks so much for the kudos!

And My so called Life sounds like my kind of show.

Tara said...

I intend to buy more Sebastien-ware soon, especially that "Floating is Fun" T-shirt! I love the red, too.

MrManuel said...

We own the whole series on MSCL on DVD because Jess loved it as a kid, but I just cannot get into it. I actually tried. Oh well...

Hello! I used to have a so called life and I'm never sure if I was a freak or a geek. (And as always, it's all about me. Sheesh!)

Sebastien: That red floating bear shirt was a complete hit here yesterday :-)
My So-Called Life is very'd like it!!!

Tara: Isn't it fun having such a talented blog friend? :-D I think red would be a great color for you.

MrManuel: It was nice of you to at least try. When I first watched it, I wasn't a kid anymore, but for some reason I found it relatible and I still do.

Crazy4Coens: Yay! You're here! It is meant to be all about you...I always hope things I say make other people think of their own versions of what I'm saying...if that makes sense.

I love the bear shirts! I need to invest soon. And what fun to wear it to story time. woot!

I love Freaks and Geeks, which we are currently re-watching. Last night they egged her brother. Ha!

I can't believe that I have made it this far in a contest... any contest. I am queen of the loser freaky geeks! Oh Donny! I knew you could carry this off!

AlienCG said...

I love the t-shirts. Very fun and your storytime kids should find them very amusing. I wish The Chairman would have made it to the finals, but I guess I'll have to unofficially root for Donny Osmond.

Ananda: You can certainly feel good investing in some bearwear
Aw, the Halloween one! I just love that show. I think I will put Undeclared in my queue next.
Donny is amazing! You were wise to put your faith in him and his crowd pleasing ways.

AlienCG: They are great, fun works of art. I really like The Chairman, too and he was one that I was sad to see eliminated. Others, not so much. Yes! Root for Donny! He's a performer through and through.
