… @greenmoms! Last month, the Green Moms Carnival Group, of which I’m a member (It’s unnecessary to have your own kids or even be female to be in this group!) won the Shorty Award in the Green category for our Twitter ID. Check it out. Several of the green moms even got to attend the awards ceremony in NYC and party with M.C. Hammer. Really!
Anna Hackman, of the blog Green-Talk, put together this loving video showing the green moms: who we are and what we aspire to do. (I don’t know why Google is showing me on the thumbnail, but I’m not going to argue!) Enjoy!
But you thought I was going to announce the winner of the Lunchbots contest, didn’t you?
Patience! I have something else to share. A long, long time ago in another life or something, Lisa Sharp from the Retro Housewife Goes Green blog asked me to write a guest post about plastic for her blog. I thought it was such a great idea I procrastinated until I could barely look her in the face. (Not that I’ve ever actually looked her in the face. She lives in Oklahoma. But her pic is very cute!)
Finally, this weekend, I came up with something for her… not a written blog post, but a video blog instead. Check out the video Fake Plastic Fish says, “Bring Your Own!” on Lisa’s blog. It shows not only how I deal with bags, bottles, and containers while out in the world, but just how dorky I really am. (Note: There is an unfortunate bump in my hoodie that makes me look like I was really cold. You’ll see what I mean. Just put it out of your mind. It’s not what you think.)
And now…the moment some of you have been waiting for!
I closed my eyes and dropped my finger into the middle of a newspaper article. It pointed at the letter “O”. There is only one commenter whose screen name begins with “O” and that is Old Dog, who left the following joke:
A bee is flying alongside another bee. He notices that his fellow apian is wearing a yarmulke.
“What’s with the headgear?” he asks.
“You want I should be taken for a WASP?”
Old Dog, you are the winner. Please contact me with your mailing address. Congratulations!
