Great Idea

I have a friend who has recently acquired a number of freelance writing gigs for Outside Magazine. Talking to some friends the other day I noted that I, too, would like to have a freelance career, however with my pale skin and lack of athletic abilities, I am ill-equipped to pitch stories where I climb tall mountains or sail around the world. Thus my great idea:

Inside Magazine: For People Who Don't Really Like To Go Outside.

I can see many possibilities for articles: The Best Software Programs for Cataloging Your DVD's; The Delivery Dining Guide; Schedule Your Summer TV Viewing With This Handy Fold Out Guide.

And then if we absolutely must discuss camping, there are two ways to go: Best Camping Equipment to Make it Feel Like You Are Actually Indoors, and Susie's idea--How To Camp Indoors With a Bedsheet.

If you have ideas, send'em in!


  1. I camped in my basement with a canopy of five bedsheets just last weekend. Lots of fun!

  2. Every weekend for like a month, my brother and I would invite our cousin over, and we would camp out in the living room in our He-Man plastic tent.

  3. Best TV series on DVD to watch all in one sitting. Veronica Mars and Queer as Folk are at the top of my list for this.

  4. i see nerf basketball hoops, putting machines, darts, and slinkies on stairs... the INSIDE olympics!

    maybe the 50 yard dash on a treadmill.

  5. Three weeks ago we put up a tent in our living room and had a sing-along with some friends.

  6. Inside Magazine is a good idea. There is one right now that's popular, but yours would be better. The current popular one is called TV Guide.
