I’m in the second day of a busy workweek (a consolidation week, for those of you [ie, my mom] who are interested in what I do for a living). Which means I don’t have much in the way of leisure time right now. Which means I don’t get to write as much as I’d like.
But there are a few things I definitely want to say. Briefly. If, in fact, I can be brief. Which I doubt.
Get Yer FatCyclist Gear Today. Cheap.
My good friends at Twin Six are kicking off a four-day sale today, with everything throughout the store going for truly ridiculous prices.
And by “ridiculous,” I of course mean “cheap.”
It’s worth browsing the whole site to find great deals, but allow me to recommend a few particular Fat Cyclist items that you may have passed on in the past.
First, the Fat Cyclist Wool Trainer. I love mine, and wear it often enough that should I ever be kidnapped, it would be the single best clothing item police should give to bloodhounds to sniff before searching for me.
The thing is, that wool trainer is normally pretty pricey. $190. Right now, though, it’s $99.00. So if you ever wanted one but just couldn’t make yourself spend that kind of money on a non-Assos item, get one today. Cuz once these are gone, we aren’t making more.
Next, if you haven’t got yourself a Fat Cyclist windshell, that’s discounted from $95.00 to $45.00. Women’s bibs are down from $90 to $40. And men’s hoodies as well as women’s hoodies are down from $40 to $25. And all the Fat Cyclist t-shirts are down from $22 to $16.00.
Thing is, with these prices, none of these things are going to make it through the day. So if you want some Fatty gear (and Twin Six clothes) cheap, you might want to get right on it.
I talk about my (numerous) superpowers pretty often. The thing is, though, most of these superpowers are fake. Yes, it’s true. They’re just rhetorical devices. Hyperbole, even.
I’ll give you a moment to wrap your mind around that.
OK, now that you’re ready to continue, I will say that I do actually have two superpowers. One of them is the ability to eat more than you think I can. The other is to ask people to do things.
The first superpower isn’t all that useful; it mostly just means that I have to keep buying larger and larger superhero costumes.
The second superpower, though. Well, that’s a different story. It’s pretty powerful. I’m proud to say, though, I — mostly — use this power for good. Today, though, it’s all about me. Well, me and my sister and a friend of mine .
Yes, that’s right. I’m about to (once again) ask you to do some Bloggies voting.
This time, it really comes as a surprise, though. While I did ask you to nominate some friends of mine, I didn’t expect to get any nominations for myself.
But apparently, a bunch of you went and nominated me for the “LIfetime Achievement” blog award anyway.
Seriously, thank you for that.
And the thing is, with me hoping to get a “Best of Fatty” book and the Caretaker’s Companion off the ground, it would not hurt my credibility at all to be able to claim a Lifetime Achievement award when I go pitching myself to folks.
So please, do me a favor and vote for me and my sister. And get your friends to. And so forth. Here’s what you do.
- Go to http://2011.bloggi.es/ .
- Scroll down to “Lifetime Achievement” (it’s way toward the bottom) and select me.
- Scroll up to “Best Parenting Weblog” and select Pistols & Popcorn.
- Scroll all over the place and select “The Pioneer Woman.”
- Hey, go ahead and vote for other folks. Why not?
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and type the weird reCaptcha words.
- Enter your email address.
- Submit your nomination
- Check your email and click the link to verify your vote.
- Yay, this has ten steps.
Thanks tons. I promise, I’ll only ask you to do this like fifteen more times this month and then I’m done asking for stuff for me.
Until, I mean, I need something from you again.
