Once Upon A Time, my sister got the stomach flu so bad. Poor thing... up in the middle of the night... every bit of food evacuating her body post-haste. Who knew the colon could churn and transform loose stool into clear liquid? Well, my brother found out when he sleep-stumbled into the bathroom and slipped and skated on the translucent trots that never made it into the toilet-bowl.

See? Analogy. Our gratitude just pours out of us! It's almost like a medical condition.

To "give back", we are hosting Macy's Thanksgiving Parade!

Tune in!

...El Niño. I know I'm supposed to be cursing Climate Change... I KNOW.

But how can I curse when meteorologists are predicting a warmer-than-usual winter??

I must embrace the phenomenon the way a mother embraces her wayward son.

IN OTHER NEWS, Jen and I chose 12 cards for the next release using darts, a cardboard cutout of Steve Buscemi, and our first-aid kit.

Here's a teaser:

And because I always plan ahead, here's a new Father's Day card:

Don't tell Blockbuster Video, but I still have a VHS copy of Alive in my attic. 

I just love survival dramas. *I* survived the heat last week, it was pretty dramatic... But I ate no one, despite feeling very hungry. To celebrate, the Intern and I set some type.

AND THEN I wrote/designed more cards for RSVP, deadline is TOMORROW. 

No big deal. Chosen card(s) just go into the Major Supermarkets.

I won't even speak of the weather BECAUSE IT'S UNSPEAKABLE.

You can't break me, Weather.

You'll never break me.

Everyone knows that the only cure for the cold is wood type. And alcohol. 

Jen and I have been having a debate about the next birthday card. And by debate, I mean she is, like, "I don't care." Doesn't she know the dangers of Not Caring??

ANYWAY, here's the card. BTW, that's a vulture, waiting for you to die.

Just when I thought it was safe to burn my foot-shaped Smartwool socks, Spring decided to retreat.

At least I have feet.

Am I right?? Although, I'd be grateful for stump-shaped Smartwool socks.


Here's a card:

Oh, and Jen and I chose the cards for The Spring Release!

Is Spring really here?

Not sure...

Let's pretend it is. Let's let me live in a world filled with hope! My obsessive weather-tracking (hourly checking my weather app) has proven to be successful.

It won't be long before smartwool socks are shed and (my) legs are shorn.

Stay tuned...

Here are a couple cards I made instead of penning a suicide note.

As I said goodbye to yet another kitten from our cat ranch,

I thought to myself, "I bet this is exactly how Beyoncé feels when she drops an album." And then I thought, "My skin is so dry."

I wish I could travel back in time... back to the 1970's when there were environmental chambers built into the walls of health club locker rooms... (I think this is a real memory and that I'm not just pasting a false memory on top of a traumatic childhood locker room incident... those topless moms blow-drying their hair... Wait, am I?? Omg... Beep beep boop: Tropical Rainforest?? Yes, please!)

NO MATTER, here's a new card!

My grandpa's battleship was bombed and he had to tread water for 13 hours WHILE he kept his unconscious buddy afloat. That was just like the time in 2009 that I swam out to meet the seal.


It's mid-February in Minnesota.
