Oh, and Tyler and Disney have a new blog from their road trip here. It's really good. Warning: Tyler does appear in his tighty-blackies.
Everyone wants it. But there's only one way to get it. Be a guest at SHYG. Or steal it. Consider the story below from a SHYG alum:
So in the job I have now, I started back in September with the internship. During Christmas break when I was home, I grabbed one of those SHYG pens off of my desk and brought it back with me. It ultimately made its way to work, where I used it for some time, ya know, for general writing and such. Probably back in March, it was misplaced, and I had written it off as lost. Months have gone by, and no word from the pen at all. And then, today, I'm sitting in on a meeting, and SOMEONE WAS WRITING WITH THAT VERY PEN! At first I was angry, and quite bitter, but then I thought of it as someone stealing a Bible. I mean, yeah they stole, but now they have a Bible, so how bad is that really? Lord only knows how many souls that pen touched while it matriculated its way around this godless array of cubicles. I mean, think of the average half-life of a common bic pen... people use them for like 4 days and they disappear. Craziness, just craziness.
I'm currently devising a plan to get it back. Right now it involves enveloping the pen in jello and smuggling it out.
Most of you have already been following the trials and triumphs of Tammy the Ambulance (renamed an Ambivalencce), but those that have not, you owe it to yourself to check these guys' out. In their words..."Most people get jobs when they graduate from college. Tyler Schwartz [note: a former youth group member] and Andrew Disney bought an ambulance. Watch as they travel across the country and uncover the real America." We were fortunate enough to get our own personal visit last week. Here's their most recent episode, but if you have time, catch all eight...and counting.
