Well, did everyone else have as difficult a time as I did getting out of bed this morning? There’s just something unpleasant about it when you can tell the temperature has dropped 50 degrees from the day before. It’s a brisk day out there, with a wind chill in the 20s (brrrr!) and a high of 44. Maybe I spoke too soon yesterday when I was raving about the warm weather. Sorry, y’all.
The Pineapples have a busy day ahead; the boys are leaving for Nashville in the morning, so there is always a lot to do in order to prepare for a trip, especially when production is involved. Not only do we have to get the crew situated, plus all of their equipment, we have to make sure that all of the actors and props are in place, and the scripts are perfect. Barlow has been pumping out some awesome creative lately, so these new spots are going to be great! And they will definitely put you into the spirit of Christmas.
We have a fun work activity this afternoon. Pineapple’s newest client, 3-D Abs, will be coming by to show us a demonstration of the product, so we can get ready to start production on the new infomercial. I have a feeling that we won’t be walking out of work this evening with brand-new six-pack abs, but I bet we will be sore tomorrow. Or at least, I will!
You all know that we have a very active Facebook page. Well, we feel like it’s time for another fan blitz! Yes, that’s right….the first person to get us 30 new fans will receive a $20 gift card to Dickinson Theatres. The easiest way to do this is to post the fan blitz in your status update. Simply tell 30 of your friends who don’t already “Like” Pineapple to go to our page, “Like” us, then post YOUR name on our wall, so we can keep track. First person to 30 wins! And who doesn’t want to take a night off from Christmas preparations to go to a movie? Especially if it’s free! And now it’s time to remind all of you that we are collecting donations for a local family for Christmas. We are accepting gift cards, food items, and clothing and toys for a six-year-old girl. She loves make-up, playing dress-up, coloring, arts & crafts and dolls. She wears size 6x/7 tops, size 7 slim pants and size 2 shoes. Please donate anything that you can to ensure that this deserving family has a wonderful holiday season. If you need more information, please contact us on our Facebook page, the Pineapple Hands Facebook page, or email Lori directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we are on the subject of helping others, let me tell you about something else. All of the Pineapple People make it a point to do random acts of kindness on a regular basis. You never know how much one act can affect someone else. And it may seem trivial to you, but it can make all the difference. Tomorrow, December 1, is Pay It Forward Day. This is a great way to start realizing how you can make a change in someone’s life. So tomorrow, do something random and kind. Pay for the coffee for the person in line behind you. Help someone load their Christmas tree. Hold the door for more folks than you normally would. Anything and everything can make a difference. Oh, and the Salvation Army bell ringers are out and about at local stores, so please donate anything to them…whatever spare change you have is fine. I’ve volunteered as a bell ringer for the last several years, and I’m telling you, it’s a COLD job! Although I never got to wear one of those aprons….maybe that would’ve helped. All right, Pineapple fans, I’m going to stop begging you for things now. Have a terrific Tuesday, bundle up, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
