Blue Roses and Brotherhood

h1 May 22nd, 2007 by Eisha and Jules

Anna Alter and Eisha -- photo used with permission (thanks, Elaine)
Elaine Magliaro and Eisha -- photo used with permission (thanks, Alvina)Hey, everyone. Two random things:

1*  Jules insists that we share these photos of Eisha at Grace Lin’s birthday party. The one with Anna Alter is by Elaine Magliaro and is posted at Wild Rose Reader. And the one with Elaine is by Alvina Ling, from the Blue Rose Girls.

2*  A while back, Jules suggested the idea of interviewing Hank Green, the elusive other half of Brotherhood 2.0 and founder of EcoGeek. The idea was very warmly received by our fellow bloggers. We’re happy to report that he was very pleased with the idea, too!

Now, since everyone seemed so enthusiastic about it, we thought we’d share this opportunity with the rest of you, too. Is there anything you’d like us to ask Hank? We’d love to hear from you – just include your questions in the comments here, or email us at seventhings *at* gmail *dot* com.

  1. Crikey, I look like I’ve imbibed too much bubbly in that photo! And as for the Blue Rose Girls–it’s a group that is a true example of “sisterhood.” Grace is a talented artist and writer and an outstanding individual. We “girls” all love and admire her.

    It was great to finally meet Eisha. She is sooooo youthful looking…and pretty!

  2. Yep, I insisted on the photos, because I think it’s really fun to see more photos of these people at these groovy events (esp. ones we’ve interviewed), and I’m jealous (but happily so, not bitterly, not in an I’m-going-to-send-her-dead-black-roses kind of way) that Eisha got to meet you all! I’m way down here in the South, so it’s great fun to see and read more. And to hear Eisha talk about how nice everyone was. She said it was really cool to see how tight the BRGs are, just like it appears online.

    Thanks for being willing to sharing the photos, Eisha.

    As for Hank, as Sara said before, do you think he could do a 7-Imp song? Hee hee.

  3. Maybe he could sing his responses to the Pivot Questionnaire? I can hear it now, all Sound of Music-y to the tune of Favorite Things:
    …Low carbon footprints and no air conditioning….Evil baby orphanages, all tied up with string…

  4. I read somewhere that Hank used to be a Mars afficionado. I’d like to know whether that is still the case, what he thinks in terms of Earth’s future with Mars (projects, missions, etc.), and whether or not Mars would be a suitable place for the Evil Baby Orphanage.

  5. Boxers or Briefs?

  6. That’s so cool!! I love how you’re just putting yourselves out there now, asking anyone you feel like asking. You’re setting a great example for the rest of us!

  7. Aw, Elaine, you’re too sweet. And serious hot stuff yourself.

    Sara, that’s an excellent idea. If he won’t do it, maybe you can compose an ode to him instead.

    mmmmpie – tempting. Very tempting.

  8. It’ll be cool to see what you come up with for Hank — he’s got quite a following on the web these days. And as a fan of the Brothers Green and 7-Imp, I’m looking forward to see what you come up with. No real ideas here, though!

  9. Kelly, that’s just it: I’m wondering how to tap into ALL those fans so that they come here and tell us what exciting questions they have. I bet that sounds like we’re trying to drum up traffic, but truly and honestly, I just want to hear all the amusing (and serious) questions that all his fans would have, but I left a note at the actual Brotherhood 2.0 blog yesterday and that didn’t seem to work. Ah well. We are capable of coming up with our own questions, but I thought it’d be so fun to reach out to the obsessive fans (and I say that respectfully).

    Any ideas, anyone, as to how to reach them?

    Oh well . . .

  10. By the way, Eisha, although you look happy in the party pictures, you’re not even a fraction as happy as you are in the pictures of you with your nephew.

    Guess we know where your heart lies.

  11. True, Robin. Nothin’ compares to holding that ornery lil’ bundle of preciousness.

  12. […] notice, though, we refrained from asking the “boxers or briefs” question. Maybe next […]
