Buying stuff. Yeah. June 8, 2010 3:37 PM   Subscribe

Did I at one point in the past find a page that had links to what MeFits had to sell? If so, where is it?

I'm think that I saw this around Christmas, possibly with something along the lines of "Hey, you're going to buy stuff anyway so why not help a brother out and buy "local.""

Of course, I also asked my wife to get out of the bed the other night (in my sleep) so I could check to see if there was a frog in the bed so there's a chance that this page I'm thinking of never existed.

Well, don't leave us in suspense, was there a frog in the bed?

You mean the mall?

Do you not see the link that says shop up top? I do.

We have a MeFits Club?

jessamyn: The shop link you mention only goes to the t-shirts- the postr was asking about the christmastime list of Mefite-stuff. ODiV's link is a couple of years old, I think.

Ha, I always thought that went to the Mall. Here is last year's link.

There's a MeFi Etsy "team", BTW.

Wow, I thought I was being stupid when I read about the shop link. But yeah, I meant the mall. That should be a permanent thing, although I can totally understand how much of a pain that would be to keep up with. Although if that's where it's been going in your brain...

Anyway, about the frog, we'll need some back story for that.

My father in law and I went to pick up the boat from the boat parking spot and when we got home we found a little tree frog under the boat cover along with the required dead bugs and not so dead bugs. By the time my wife and her mom got home from the grocery store the frog was hanging out under the boat and I showed it to them there.

I have this habit of talking and having conversations in my sleep with the wife. At least I trust that she wouldn't make this stuff up, and I believe her because it's a bit too weird to not be real. I've had a night where I insisted we had pet chickens, one where I insisted on getting up to clean things up around the apartment, and many nights where I could understand English but spoke in some incomprehensible alien language.

From what I gather, because I don't remember any of this, the conversation was something along the lines of:

"I need you to get out of the bed so I can check something."
"What? No you don't, go back to sleep."
"But I need to check something."
"Fine, what do you need to check?"
"I need to see if there's a frog in the bed. Can you get out so I can check?"
"There's not a frog in the bed. Go back to sleep."

Apparently I'm very agreeable during these sleep conversations.

I insisted we had pet chickens...

Sorry, I read this as "I insisted we pet chickens" and thought it was rather sweet that you'd want to pet chickens in your sleep and wondered if your wife would give you a pillow or something and say, "Here you are. Pet this. It's a chicken."

It's been a long and difficult day.

Hey, this reminds me: I wanna make an Abecediary for my son's fifth birthday. Are you an artist? Does this sound interesting to you? Memail me and let's talk.

Not until you get out of the swimming pool.

But seriously, talk to The Whelk.

if you were the one who called the cops on me, jessamyn, I'm never gonna forgive you.

Am I derailing to point out that the T shirts under the "Shop" tab appear to be perpetually sold out, except tl;dr?

*wipes away disappointed tear*

The wiki is a good place to reference when searching for these odd one-offs. See, for instance, my baby Shadowy Back Alleys.

As for the shirts, if memory serves there weren't going to be any more ordered until the current batch is completely sold out. So buy a tl;dr in men's XS today!

PEOPLE OF METAFILTER: I will accept payments to not post this to the front page. That is the service I offer. You will find my deal to be quite fair.

Tim, I haven't looked at your link, or even moused over it, but I wanna let you know that someone already posted the Alejandro video and it got deleted.

Wow I've been hanging out here an awful lot/too much lately. Because I don't know mccarty.tim but I knew exactly what video that had to be.

(love it by the way, though now I think she's, at least partially, being Madonna-derivative-in-really-obvious-ways so purposefully to piss stupid people off)

Lady Gaga pisses people off? It seems more like she's just boring them.

Doesn't it piss you off when people bore you?

I mainly like Lady Gaga to piss people off, as I don't have the backbone to be a real troll.

Lady who?

Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense... am I wrong?

There is no way as a dude I get to wear a machine-gun bra and get away with it. That makes me kind of sad.

Mephits carry the standard stuff.

I never saw the Mall before, and I like it! Can we please have that as a regular thing? Please please please? Also more Tshirts please, kthx.
posted by The otter lady at 11:14 AM on June 9, 2010

It's labor intensive so it's unlikely to become a regularly updated thing. However the Etsy team could become more of a "hey shop here!" hub than maybe it already is.
posted by jessamyn (staff) at 11:18 AM on June 9, 2010

I think it would be great as just another link, no need to regularly update it. Once a month at most would be fantastic.

MeFits! I think that's what we should call those occasional flamewars on the blue.

And metafilter branded doughnuts? Mefritters.

Does that come with a side plate of beans?
posted by Xere at 10:07 PM on June 9, 2010

No. They would be made with azuki, Japanese sweet red bean paste.
