For all those who "poo-poo-ed" PETA for buying an ad on my page and not just "giving" me the money, they (PETA that is) sent me a lovely box of vegan chocolates & truffles, along with a thank you card today. Actually, they probably sent it a couple of days ago. But it arrived today. Delivered with a frozen little cooler thing to keep the rice milk and soy from going bad due to the rising heat of the sun roofs in the UPS trucks. (That's one of those ideas that sounds great in theory, but I assume just turns the van into a giant sun-oven of doom for the drivers.)
So there ya go. PETA, not a group of terrible people. Besides... y'all know it's wrong to wear fur right? (Said the man in the leather shoes. Are they leather? They look like suede. They may not be. They're Converse. If they're fake then probably a few third world children gave half their day to make my shoes... so I'm still a jerk in the long run.) Also, for the record, I still insist on pronouncing the acronym PETA at Pet-a (that's the word "pet", as in a pet dog, followed by the "a" sound from "apple"). I mean it doesn't stand for People for the EEEthical Treatment of Uh-nimals right?
In other news, our "VIP Tour" of the WB studios before the Ellen show on the 25th is set up and finalized. They were very sweet and worried that it would all be too much for me in the long run. I assured them the worst that could happen would be me passing out or dying. After that they were fine with the idea. *wink* I was even able to get the name of the guests that were on that day. (I'm not one of them, for the record) But I'm not allowed to tell you. That would be cheating. Our episode, if everything goes as planned, should air on the 26th or 27th of May. Somebody "TiVo" it will ya?
Also, also, wik: We finally have some bracelets in, as well as a few key-chains. We'll make them available on this site as soon as I get back. Gotta warn you though, it just seems silly to package and mail one bracelet. So they'll be available in quantities beginning with five or ten. More to come.
Thanks for all the support on the video blog yesterday. I prefer this. I can't say it's more edited or thought through. (I really just type what I'm thinking.) But I prefer this. There will be more video blogs. But, to be honest, if I could I'd probably type them up on an old portable type-writer and just scan and post them if I had the energy... which I don't.
One of the shirts I'm making myself for the trip. Front: Choose joy! Back: Or take it as a suppository.
