in this post, i’ve decided to give you some numbers that are a part of the world of durtbagz right now. these are in no particular order; i am writing them as i think of them. uh, no, obviously i did not plan for this post. get off me, do i have to organize everything? it’s still in the upper 90’s here and halloween is tomorrow. i’m not happy about that so cut me some slack. i need to wear jeans during the daytime sometimes, people. it’s just who i am.
67: the number of large campuses with Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters that i will be contacting for some grassroots marketing. and this isn’t even all of the chapters; these are the bigger schools in each state. i had no idea it was this big. then again, i am an only child and typically only think about myself.
90: the number of bags in my inventory that are done and done RIGHT. that’s right, you heard me. i have bags that are what i want, done the way i want them. i thought this day would never come.
4: the number of words i’m researching to replace the word ‘tote’ on the website. dudes will not buy a tote. plus, this bag really isn’t one anyway. rucksack is at the top of this list right now. nice and manish. oh, maybe i should think about using the word ‘man’ in it somewhere. maybe…’mansack’? no. moving on.
15: the number of colleges across the country that have a popular club sport that i am also going to hit in my grassroots plan. these sports involve skiing (water and snow), snowboarding, and wake boarding. if you have some spare time, check out CU’s (colorado) club, BOULDER FREERIDE. it’s only the biggest club of it’s type in the country. eventually, it will probably be re-named DURTBAG FREERIDE. i’m just sayin’.
19: the number of books on the topic of astrology/ghosts/psychics/black magic already on the table i am writing this from at a scottsdale public library. including one called ‘teen spell book’. i’d say this kid needs a hug.
1: number of durtbagz videos ready to roll. it will be posted on youtube when we launch. it will make you laugh because it is lame and super.
18: the number of boxes of bags in my office right now. 9 of them boxes of good bags, 9 of them boxes of not-so-good bags.
200: number of shirts with the old signs on them in my office right now. still not sure what i’m doing with all of these. i think i’ll wait six months after we launch and call them vintage.
20: the number of signs that are available for bags when we launch.
1: number of things i’m waiting on in order to launch. can you guess what it is?
1: number of mascots for durtbagz. casey, the durt-dog, will be making her debut when we launch. she’s very excited and tells everyone at the dog park when we go.
3: number of days left until the weekend. just doesn’t feel like enough, sometimes.
2: number of trips we have planned in the next couple of months to keep us sane. one for family, one for fun (hello snowboarding!!)
1: the number of girls that will be the happiest ever when this thing goes live.
