Heavy Weather (and Pimpage)

Overnight a monsoon moved into the area and managed to keep me up half the night. I'm pretty glad I've got the day off! I promise to try not to rub it in...too much. Instead? I'll pimp.

Contrary to all logic, I unleashed my Rude Cactus swag on you without actually sampling my own goods. And you really should sample your own stuff...unless you're a drug dealer. That's what I've always read anyway. My lovely wife ordered one of my shirts for me (how odd a sentence is that?) and it came yesterday. I've gotta say, I think it looks pretty good. So, in an effort to convince you that I wouldn't ask you to buy anything I wouldn't wear myself...

So far, you Rude Cactus readers and I have pulled together $61 for tsunami aid - the current total will always be kept updated over there on the right. I'd dig topping $100 for the month...although it would make me even happier to raise more.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday! I'll be around...wearing a really kick-ass shirt...

You know my keyboard can't take much more accidental drooling because I am looking at such a hot guy in such a cool t-shirt. WOW... makes me want to buy something

Posted by: goodsnake at January 14, 2005 11:21 AM

Wow. I'm reading through all these comments and it's as if you have your own personal harem or something. Must be great for days when you need a little ego boost. I should think about throwing up some pics on my site. Keep the ladies happy and everything. (Kidding, of course.)

My other point is to say that what you are doing is commendable. Well done.

Holy cow, Batman! You are HOT! The Mrs. is one lucky woman!

Oh, and the shirt is cool, too.

You'd better be careful with pictures like that. Looks like you're already developing a RC Stalking Cult... ;)

Something tells me you're not exactly in the office today....

Posted by: Dawnie at January 14, 2005 11:44 AM

I ordered mine yesterday!! Can't wait.

Posted by: Honor at January 14, 2005 12:14 PM

I hope it looks as good on me as it does on you. That's the one I ordered!

Posted by: Jazzy at January 14, 2005 12:28 PM

Beth better watch out. There's alot of women commenting on your modeling shot in the a$$hat shirt.

BTW, when the pic first loaded, it looked like you were in jail.

Posted by: Jon in Michgian at January 14, 2005 12:33 PM

WICKED good my friend. I ordered the same shirt for MD...now I know what it'll look like!

yay Beth!

Posted by: wn at January 14, 2005 12:51 PM

Haha!! I just surfed on your blog and JaB was like; "So who's that?" So it said; "That's Chris." And he said ;"Yeah, he has a real Chris head!"
Whatever that means!!!!

Cool shirt.

Posted by: JustAgirl at January 14, 2005 12:59 PM

OH MY!! Look how hot you look Chris! Woooooooohooooooooo!!!!*wolf whistles* Lucky Beth!

Look mate. I'd love to buy the t-shirt AND coffecup... love em, (and the logo) but, Cactus must wait for me to have... erm, income.

I really DO love the stuff.

You totally are a rockstar!

Loving the shirt, looks great ;)

Posted by: chrissie at January 14, 2005 2:07 PM

Jesus, Chris, maybe I WILL hire you for the bachelorette party! You said you were cheap, right?

Posted by: Heather at January 14, 2005 2:18 PM

Looks spiffy. But I am so NOT in the harem. :P

Posted by: Sweety at January 14, 2005 3:21 PM

What you should do is model EVERYTHING you're selling. ;)

Posted by: Maureen at January 14, 2005 5:32 PM

Posted by: Maureen at January 14, 2005 5:32 PM

I think it's hilarious that you have the asshat shirt in children's & babies' sizes. I better not let my 11-year-old see that. He'll totally want one.

Posted by: Nina at January 14, 2005 8:35 PM

Whoo! Sexy and funny AND wearing an awesome shirt! What a lucky and smart wifey you have ;)

I'll be ordering up one myself when the paycheck gets here Monday! Cause I definitely have "Zero Tolerance for Asshats!"

Posted by: Gweny at January 14, 2005 8:35 PM

You sexy mofo you. Yeah, I called you a mofo. So?

Posted by: Halo at January 14, 2005 9:15 PM

Good thing you weren't knitting in those pictures, I think the wimmins would have started fainting up in here.

And his wife is totally hot too, so there. ;-)

Posted by: y at January 15, 2005 1:49 AM

Cool! You have hairy arms like me, and my mom!

Maybe we are related!

This is a great thing you are doing, Chris! I hope you and Beth are having a nice weekend!

Posted by: Rockchild at January 15, 2005 8:16 AM

Hey, RC - Mr. Bisous and I were watching The Bourne Supremacy tonight - and you look an awful lot like the evil Russian assassin. Just thought you should know.

Cool shirts :)
