Gini Dietrich, My Idol
Gini Dietrich is a good friend, a smart gal and someone I’d hire in a minute if I needed a whole bunch of marketing know how. And, of course, if I didn’t do that shiz myself.
Her niece was hanging out in Chicago and spending time with her hip and trendy Aunt Gini recently and had a blast. In fact, she had so much fun that she created a special drawing for Gini as a keepsake. Which, of course I found because I stalk Gini on Facebook, too. Heck, I stalk that girl everywhere. Enough about me.
The drawing rocks! I love kid art – especially this kid art. It gives you a glimpse into how this little girl sees life, Chicago, the fun things she did on her visit and most importantly, her “Ant Geny.” I liked it so much I decided to make it into a new avatar for my friend. Then I decided, what the heck, why not go the whole hog and just write a doggone blog post about it. w00t w00t. I do so love it when inspiration strikes.
Feast your eyes on this, the original, uncut version, won’t you?
Hmmmmm. I wonder what that open mouth is supposed to mean? Is it:
“I can’t WAIT to get on my bike and ride, ride, ride. And then Facebook, Facebook, Facebook about it!”
or is it:
“I love this social media stuff so much I can barely STAND it. Let me tell you why it makes sense for you and YOUR business.”
Or, is it:
“I’m gonna feed Pete the Tapeworm NOW and you can’t stop me. Oh no, you can’t. Just try it. If you do, I’m gonna run you over with that bike of mine!”
No matter, the rendition of Ant Geny is adorable and, being the good friend that I am, I couldn’t resist poking a little fun at Gini Gin Gin. As I like to call her.
Oh, and do yourself a favor, read her damn blog, willya? She knows her stuff and you’ll be glad you did. And you’ll soon see why I like her. And why I can’t resist exploiting every opportunity that comes my way to tease her. Oh, and follow her sassy self on Twitter. She knows her schizzzzz. For reals.
