A couple of UncommonGoods people are at SXSW this week; at the interactive part, not for film. But some of us who aren't going (passive-aggressive pouting alert: orange) were perusing the SXSW site, looking at the film festival schedule, and saw this: “Big names, big talent: Headliners bring star power to SXSW, featuring red carpet premieres and gala film events with some major and rising names in cinema..."
A series of skillful drawings have appeared on the wipe boards around the break-out meeting area at the UncommonGoods office. Although we're very curious to know who the talented artist is, we are hoping that more anonymous images keep appearing.
I love a good proposal story. Something about a well-planned surprise and the element of pure astonishment makes me a little giddy. Traditional proposals are sweet, but this hopeless romantic prefers an original and outrageous idea for putting a ring on it, especially a personal gesture that reflects the interests of the couple. With Valentine's Day coming I have spent an embarrassing amount of time on YouTube perusing proposal videos. These are my favorite most uncommon proposal idea.

Some of you got in touch after our email went out yesterday, pointing out that we could've been more inclusive in our definition of nerd. We definitely appreciate the feedback. Thing is, we have a bit of a confession to make. Many of us have been looking forward to this email for weeks-- men and women alike. See the thing is we are all pretty nerdy, and were pretty excited to share our extreme enthusiasm with you.
