Secrets of Spring

Secrets of Spring
Photo-A-Day #1505

The irises around the house have started to make their springtime debut. Although it does not feel like spring around here but rather more like summer. I’m not ready to be instantly covered in sweat the moment I step out of the car. Although this weekend is supposed to be cooler. We shall see.

In the excitement of our vacation I forgot that I had ordered a new shirt from TenBills.com (Disclosure: Ten bills sent me free shirts in the past and even sponsored a contest with me and supplied me with prizes for Blogs, Brews and Belly Laughs and since then I’ve spent my own money on their shirts because I love how they look and how they feel).

New TenBills.com T-Shirt

This particular shirt is a limited edition t-shirt that TenBills is selling to help raise funds for ShutterCal (a free photo-a-day site that arranges your daily photos on a calendar, it rocks.). By the way I think the shirt captures the essence of what I have been doing for over 4 years. I now have to go and make sure that my Shuttercal is up to date (which it is not, you have to go back to January)

Transformers M&Ms

Speaking of limited edition, M&M’s just released their Transformers Movie Tie-In candies. Yesterday Allison picked up the Peanut M&M’s which are Decepticon themed, the Plain M&Ms which are Autobot themed. There is also a special edition Snickers bar that has Yellow Nougat. The bar is supposed to be colored like BumbleBee. There are some collectible wrappers. I’m not going to be collecting them however. What am I gonna do with some candy wrappers?

If I could get a job just giving away sweet fantastic swag I would be in total heaven. I love giving away prizes to people whether free or through raffles. Tomorrow night I get to give away a bunch of things. I have some IZEA Swag, 3 XShots, 5 Speeding Tickets and 2 Flip Ultras.

Blogs, Brews and Belly Laughs II: Laughter for a Cause is tomorrow night and there is quite some buzz around it. With the Facebook page, Twitter contest and all the word of mouth advertising this is shaping up to be an incredible night. I stopped in to the Speed of Thought Playhouse and chatted with Christian. He’s really excited about the night ahead as well.

You can be a part of the event as well even if you cannot make it in person. You can be there live on Stickam. You can even participate by following me on Twitter @benspark. I’ll tweet out requests for suggestions and you can tweet back using the hashtag #bbbl2 and #icause.
