My wife teaches First Grade in Austin Texas, and her school is doing College Pride week. She selected Michigan from the list since we're both fans. Problem is, we don't have all that much stuff. This is a great opportunity to teach these students that UT isn't the only college. Basically, she has to decorate her door and a board. Anyone have any ideas where to get Michigan themed stuff online or have any stuff?
OT: Michigan Stuff
MDen and even Amazon have stuff she can use. She can use UM wrapping paper to cover a door or board, yellow and blue balloons. Even print out block Ms on the computer.
I heard there is a bunch of things there...
/in before del
Not sure if its my mood or not, but this was my first reaction as well. Should I be afraid that I'm thinking like Dude? See an exorcist or something?
Just teasing Dude. Seriously, we're all busy here - consult all your easiest resources first OP and then hit us up if you're having trouble. Happy to help, but put in a bit of your own work first.
Stuff like the OP drives me batshit. You are on the fucking computer!!! What are you asking me for?
Hey, do you know of any good places to eat in Houston? No, but the goddam internet that you are currently on while you type this probably does. I mean seriously. What in the fuck.
NO offense to the OP, but jesus dude. Seriously.
LOL...don't look now but he got a free flag!
If your wife is looking to save a little perhaps and doesn't mind breaking the school's toner budget, I think it would be pretty cool to start doing some serious image searches for photos of the Michigan campus, photos of moments in the history of our varsity sports and so forth and create a literal wall of images somewhere in the room.
It's probably not what you're looking for, but I have a wall-sized Michigan flag you can have. I don't really have room to hang it anymore and I think my wife would freak if I tried to do so. It's yours if you want it!
If he doesn't I will take it, $$ if you'd like
Sorry dr the delayed response - I talked to her and that would be perfect! She said it would go on the board in the hall. I'd love to buy this off of you if possible.
Where abouts in Austin?
No cash necessary. If it helps educate the young Longhorn masses about Michigan, that's enough for me. Plus, we're in the process of moving and I don't really have a place for it. I work at 611 S. Congress, near Riverside, in the office building right behind Freebird's. If you're able to pick it up, I can bring it tomorrow or later this week. One side, unfortunately, has a few marks on it, but the other side is pristine.
Ask Wolverine Devotee. The guy keeps MDen open by himself
more descriptive of what you're after. Maybe add "need help," etc. Good luck. Texas is an all-consuming monster and must be beaten back with a strategy of 1,000 cuts.
If you have any family or friends in or around Michigan, have them go to Walmart, Target or Meijers. They usually have a ton of stuff that pretty cheap which they could send to you.
If you are looking for blue and maize, go to the and get their plastic table runner material and streamers. I decorate our office every November and for a low investment, you can cover a ton of square footage.
If your don't have a GFS, any party supply store.
Every thread here should be titled "Michigan stuff."
