That's it for Mike's Zany Creative Tips. I hope some of you found it helpful, and weren't all just like, "Man, this isn't news about the CPSC at all, I have grossly mis-clicked."
TEASER FOR NEXT WEEK: I think I'm going to write a little bit about hotels and travel promotions. Larry Wilhelm, president and owner of Custom HBC gave me a ton of material for my March story that I already know isn't going to fit. A lot of the info I think is really smart and a shame to waste, so I'll probably write a nice little supplement and post it here, full of my usual flair and sass that everyone finds just so charming.
CHARLES PLYTER FACT OF THE WEEK: Even though I already gave you all the bit about the Red Bull and chocolate milk, I'll include another fact in case anyone feels cheated by its casual inclusion. Let's see ... um, Charles has a really nice pair of boots that he wears sometimes. They were either an engagement or wedding gift from his wife, I forget which. They're cowboy-ish boots, and have this cool little metal ring on the side, near the outer ankle. They are pretty great boots, I won't lie.
