You probably wonder everyday how our wonderful blog is run. Do those three really get along as well as they seem, or do their meetings consist of arguing and the throwing of household objects? Does one of us – and if so, which one? – attempt to utilise Machiavellian tactics against the others to get the post day of our choosing? Well, now’s your chance to be a fly on the wall of one of our Urchin board meetings! And luckily for you, we won’t swat you, either!
Sarah lives in Vermont. Margaret lives in New Mexico. I live in California. Our weekly meetings take place on the internet, where we talk for a solid hour or two about the important things in the world – namely, cupcakes, puppies, and Canada.
Our recent road trip, however, provided us with the rare opportunity of holding our board meetings in person. These special meetings were the foundations of Urchinism, during our days in London, where we would hold three-hour meetings at the pub about the important things in the world – namely, cupcakes, puppies, and Canada.
But our road trip matured us. In addition to cupcakes, puppies, and Canada, we would each bring to the table (what is usually a metaphorical table, but during our road trip meetings there would usually be a table somewhere, and we would use that) ideas we’d want to discuss. They would range from current events to things that happened to us just last week to the ever-popular ‘I have no ideas. Just give me Thursday and I’ll figure something out.’
So that’s the secret, in a nutshell. Oh, also important: the use of odd-looking chairs.
