: Gary D. is the coolest - EVAR.

(Sorry, Matt. I like you too. lol)

So he sent me something in the mail. I was curious at first, and kind of confused, as it was quite random, but this is what I found:

Yeah, he's got Cadillac mailing address stickers. I thought that was cool.

But... whatever could it be?! Well... since he's at OSU, and they're doing their "Powered by Orange" campaign, Gary thought I could use some orange swag (seriously, who couldn't?)

As Gary will probably notice, not all of it is pictured there. Some has already been applied. :) Also, that orange little square thing sitting by the laptop on my (messy) desk, is an LED crank-powered light. I have a lot of random orange things.

Yes, that's an Atomic Orange ZR1 on my microwave. DON'T JUDGE ME! :hide: (There are two more on my laptop too... I kinda love stickers.)

And now the one on my 360 won't feel so lonely either! :D

Not sure what I'm going to do with the static cling stickers. The windows on the wagon are too dark for them. Dorm room windows, perhaps? Who knows. :)

In more sticker news, I also received these yesterday:

ZR1 sticker on laptop can be seen... lol

And here they are on the wagon. :)

Thanks Gary! The Powered by Orange stickers are AWESOME! :) It should also be noted that when I opened my PO box and opened the envelope, I was wearing an orange T-shirt (seriously). This amused me. :p

Just curious, but how does one get such a flaming (lol) fetish for all things orange?

(no, i'm not implying that you're a ghay, but I thought the word usage couldn't be beat)

lololol That was actually clever. And I have no idea. I've always liked it as long as I can remember. Just one of those things I guess.

A bit strange but very cool Gary! :thumbsup:

If there's one thing OSU folk know, it's orange.

Time for me to head west, then. :lol:

Glad you liked the swag, Roo. I figured it would fit right in with your love for Orange. For those of you who don't know, I'm part of the creative team that developed the Powered by Orange (http://www.poweredbyorange.com) campaign for OSU, and I incorporate the theme and the ideas behind it into almost everything I write for the university. We've won some top awards regionally and nationally for marketing in higher ed with this campaign, but more importantly, its helping to raise our profile in places like Portland and change perceptions about what the university is today. Sorry if this sounds like bragging, but Powered by Orange has been by far the most successful marketing campaign I've worked on in my 22-year career, and I am proud of it.

I was never crazy about the color orange before I started working at OSU (I know, blasphemy, right Roo?), but I've come to appreciate that it's bold and vibrant, and from a practical standpoint, stands out in our landscape here.

Yes, blasphemy!

But I forgive you. :thumbsup:

OH. Now I get the sticker on your facebook. Maybe I should have checked the Lounge first. Next time I mod a 360, I'll do it in orange/black with plexi windows, a watercooling system and orange LED's, then I just have to put it on Ebay and nonchalantly tell you it's up there for auction...and dare I say...colour my Orange Mead...Orange?
