I've been lifting the logos at the top of this blog off our Evites. Now that we are going to be world famous, I think it's time to come up with something a little more original.
I want it to be simple, and cute, but professionalish. I am going to start doing some web design stuff in the next couple months and would like to have a logo by May at the latest. I am thinking about maybe doing something scrolled and remniscent of a fancy restaurant menu. But I don't want it to be too over the top. If we go with a fancy text, I would like there to be something we can pull out of it to make a tiny logo, even if it is just a scripted WS.

Any ideas?



Is there anyone out there who might be interested in being the official graphic designer? The pay will most likely suck, but you will be able to put it on your resume and I'll cook you a kick-ass non-spaghetti meal with drinks included for every job you do. I'm going to be working with Dave to get this incorporated, and I plan to get it as close to being as official as humanly possible by mid-March.

The Bylaws are done, or close to it. The Articles of Incorporation are in the works.

When I started Wednesday Spaghetti, I wanted it to be huge. Just want to let you guys know that I had a talk with Dave last night at the bar about gaining non-profit status. He knows how to do it in Jersey, so hopefully Pennsylvania isn't that much different.

You ladies, you original WedSpaggers, were chosen because you are mothers, step-mothers, teachers, social workers, care givers, community organizers, and generally good people. You aren't here by mistake, my friends. I'm totally using you for your virtues. Sorry. But it's not my fault you are such wonderful people.

My vision is to work with local community centers and social service agencies to promote women and families coming together over dinner. It rarely happens but it does a world of good when it does. Ideally, packages or baskets of noodles, sauce, and cheese would be handed out along with some literature about engaging families and friends at mealtime. We'll see.

I figure it is a good concept, and the whole basket of dinner wouldn't cost more than $10 to put together. Even less if we can get the cooperation of local grocers and I know a few people who do brochure printing. I've given $10 a million times over (well... maybe not a million) to people to put towards the charity of his or her choice. Lord knows I've pissed away $10 a thousand times over on booze and coffee and junk food and I can only imagine what else. I'm sure you have too and you'll do it again.



Is this thing on?

Now, just because I said this doesn't mean I'm rushing into it. So don't push me. I hope to be a non-profit by the end of 2009 and go from there. I'll keep you posted on my progress here.

Who's in?

Oh my god. I think I'm going to throw up. Look what I found when I was googling us.

I thought we were the only ones.

I thought we were special.

I wanted to get that dammed url.

please help me understand

I am writing this here because I don't have my own blog and I think you are all intelligent women with lots of life experience. My husband is really smart, he has his MBA, he has run his own department at a major corporation and has kind of a fancy job. Why is it that when he puts my laundry away, he puts everything in a single drawer, socks, underwear, shirts, pajamas and exercise gear? He is welcome to leave it in the basket where it has been sitting for the past week which is what makes his motivation more confusing. Why is it that when he has to take a child somewhere without me, he must call me 5-8 times to confirm the where, when, why, how, even if directions are printed clearly on a piece of bright yellow paper? It wasn't always this way, he was once very competent on the home front. I love this man but this stuff amazes me.

On another note, the blog I posted here last week, I also emailed to all of my friends. A bunch of them donated a toy that their child/children never opened and would never notice it's absence. We were able to give 6 gifts to each child in a family of 5! Those who didn't donate toys, donated money and we were able to donate to another family living in a domestic violence shelter. It makes me really happy that we were able to do this but it is a bit shocking to see that our kids have such an overabundance of crap that their leftovers made another family's holiday. Social working forces me to see how lucky my family is, daily. I thought I'd share this with you in case you were feeling bad about the fact that the stores are all sold out of that thing your kid so desperately "needs". And I will now stop feeling bad about my stupid husband.

If any of you are coming for spag tonight and read this before and have a few bucks to spare and haven't already donated your time, energy, money are looking to get into heaven (or wherever you want to go), I am looking for donations for a family I work with. I am a social worker at a school and we get tons of donations for holiday gifts and one of the families started school here after all of the holiday programs dried up. There are 5 children, boys 12, 9, 4 and 3 and a 2 year old girl. If you are rotten like Lora and have new gifts that you never let your kid have, bring them. If not, $5 will do.

P.S. Just kidding about Lora, I think it is nicer to give to kids in need than to give to our spoiled rotten brats.
