I've come to the conclusion that I apparently dress like a hipster. yes, I have a wardrobe of jeans and witty and obscure t-shirts. I didn't realize this. I was somewhere off being offbeat and awesome and it just happened. I would search for t shirts that were so cool and amusing. you know the ones that you read and have to think about. yeah. crap. being a hipster or dressing like one doesn't work at 42, especially when you start an office job. a job where you can't dress in any of the clothes I have. so I've had to buy a whole new wardrobe full of grown up clothes. :( and I have to wear my hair normal. not that my hair is not normal but I'm betting that purple highlights are a no no. maybe not. we'll see. not that I don't love my new job. so far I do. it's very laid back with nice people and it won't jack up my arm or foot. and the hours are awesome. no more nights weekends or holidays.
it wasn't buying the new clothes or starting the new job in itself that kind of bummed me out. it was that I had to kind of say goodbye to being funky and offbeat. like I had to grow up. maybe I should have started earlier and it wouldn't be so hard. kind of like working night shift. don't start working night shift at my age. your body can't deal with it. but that's beside the point.
oh well, I'll adjust. I'll move on! and I'll find a way to be undercover awesome and different.
while sitting here thinking random thoughts, I had an idea. during the month of february, the month of love, I'm going to be posting author's book buttons and featuring their book every day. so what that means is, if you have a book button, I'll post it in my sidebar for free, gratis, 100% off, all month long. then I'll feature your book in a post. all for free because I love books and think authors should have their books publicized for free, even if it is only for one month and only on my blog. although my posts get posted on facebook and my twitter account so word will get out. pass the word!! spread the news!! and then email me your book button with a link to where readers can get your book.
my email... firstname.lastname@example.org
don't send me a bunch of spam. I won't be happy. but DO send your book button or trailer or a sticker figure rendering and I'll flog it for free!
