Weekly Happiness

Hello! I hope you’re doing well. I don’t celebrate traditional Easter, but I have fun with the festivities, especially getting my picture taken with the Easter bunny (see below). I’ve also been busy with the Guerrilla Love Signs, seeing surf punk bands in bowling alleys, and visiting the Baltimore Museum Of Art. There are some really fantastic exhibits there right now, and it’s free! Also, the day we went there, we found this group of people who were starting to gather for an event wearing the most incredible, extravagant hats I’ve ever seen (also below).

My friend and old boss, LaShandra, messaged me to tell me that I’m (paraphrasing) living proof if you go outside feeling grateful and expecting to find whimsy and the beauty in human existence, it will cross your path. And she’s right! I actually plan to write a whole post about this, but so many people write me every day that they feel like their life is “boring” and they wish things could be like my life. Remember that I’m actively going out and searching for stuff! I’m also going out with a positive attitude, waiting for magic because I believe it’s possible. If I can be happy for thirty years in a city that’s known around the world exclusively for rats, murder, and soft crabs, I’m pretty sure you can find whimsy in your own life, too. We just have to not only be open, but be willing to look. Case in point, I saw a man walking a dog while playing a giant drum. I stopped my car to take a video and the light turned green, and none of the other cars honked for me to go because it was so damn amazing.


In other news, I am finally increasing the cost of my Uncustomary Babe Membership plans. If you have been delaying getting a membership, it is TIME TO JOIN. The value for just $5 a month is pretty insane, and the amount of people who tell me I do more for my group than any other group they’re in and I am way undercharging for it is significant. I put out five new resources a week, and the reviews speak for themselves! If you sign up for either the Basic Plan or Awesome Plan by April 30th, you’ll be locked in at the current cheap prices, but on May 1st, those prices are going up for good! So check out all the amazing things you get, the reviews, the FAQ, and actually sign up here! I can’t believe how many people have signed up since I’ve made this announcement yesterday in my newsletter. I can’t wait to send you your membership card!

[Extra Sparkle] * Having people come over to make signs even though they weren’t coming to the actual Guerrilla Love Signs event (thanks Kelly, Felisha, and Kitty’s daughter!) * Successfully spreading positivity and kindness (and handing out 100 eggs on the street) * A little girl hugging me and saying, “I love your costume” * Dancing in a unicorn onesie and mask on the street corner * Having great conversations with people about accountability * Spreading the remaining 40 eggs around museums and parks * Watching the Easter episode of “Bob’s Burgers” * My dad dropping off a silly Easter bunny card and chocolate bunny * Giant fluffy clouds and two birds sneaking in the picture, as an Uncustomary Babe pointed out to me, because they wanted to be Instagram famous * Reading my horoscope * Driving as the sunsets listening to “Venus” by Lady Gaga during Taurus Season * Starting to think about summer decorations * Seeing so many correlations between zodiac seasons and unusual holidays * Avocado and hummus sandwiches * Getting a giant box of Cadbury eggs for the freezer for off-season enjoyment * Driving by dog parks (on purpose) * Finding the perfect song for the Guerrilla Love Songs event video * A guy walking his dog playing a giant drum * Walking into a bathroom and hearing a lady yell, “WHOA YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE HOW MUCH I AM PISSIN’!”
