My Favorite Rally To Restore Sanity T-Shirt Slogans

"I disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you aren't Hitler."

"Because civility is what grownups do."

"I'm not afraid of Muslims, Tea Partiers, Socialists, Immigrants or Gays. But I'm kind of afraid of spiders."

"These colors don't run. Because flags don't have legs."

"Because too many people are getting paid to make me angry."

"November 2, 2010. I touched myself instead of voting for Christine O'Donnell."

"I went for the contact high. I stayed for the mild outrage."

"Because crazy isn't as sexy as rational."

"You can't have a tea party without a fruit cake."

"Mindless outrage makes my head hurt."

" 'I'm mad' is not a policy agenda."

"Im a progressive Democrat, and really pretty normal."

"You're mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore."

"The Founding Fathers were East coast liberals."

Something New And Exciting!

The Holidays are right around the corner and I would love to help you with your Holiday Card designs this year.  I have been working on my digital design skills and think that this might be a great opportunity for you to have a memorable and unique card without all the work for you!

I use design packages from which means that you can go to their website and look through their entire holiday section and tell me which package you like the best.  Then I will use the pieces in the packet to create a card in Adobe PhotoShop.  If you want pictures of your family included, just send them to me!  You can also think about what you want to write on the card (and inside if you choose a folded card).  No design is final until you are happy.  We can work on it until you have exactly what you want.

If you take a look at the packages, you will see that there are packages for Christmas, Hanukkah, and some simple winter designs.  Anything is possible!

After the design is created I can help you place the order for the card style you want at either or
I happen to prefer the card quality at Vista Print.

My charge is $25 plus the cost of the digital package (usually $5-$7).
This does not include the price of the cards you order.

Here are three of my ideas.  You can also send me pictures of cards you see and like and I can try to make something similar, but personalized.

If you would like to order a card design, just email me at

I suggest you take a look around

Spam, It's Not Just Square Meat

Whichever computer decides what spam email I get should be rebooted. I have been getting the following offers repeatedly:

The Electronic Cigarette! (I have never smoked and don't even know how an electronic cigarette might work. Long extension cord?)

Diabetic Protection (Not diabetic and don't know any diabetics I need protection from.)

Christian Singles Near You! (Single, but really not Christian. Maybe a guy named Christian?)

Bionic Hearing Aid. (Love this one. I have above average hearing that actually causes issues, google 'hyperacusis', But I kind of want to try it simply to be The Bionic Blogger.)

How To Be A Better Republican. (Laughed out loud at this one. I need a lot of help being a better Republican seeing as I'm slightly to the left of the liberal Democrats. And how does one be a better Republican? Do Glen Beck and Elisabeth Hasselbeck come to your house? If so, that could be interesting...)

Hip Replacement Surgery Recall. (Awesome. All my parts are my own, thanks. And how does one recall something in your body?)

Viking River Cruises. (One boat tour of the Seine in Paris and now they are following me. Damn French.)

Things To Do When You Are Sick For A Week

Finally take the time to program the DirecTV remote to function for the sound system and DVD player as well, thus taking the remote count from 4 to 1.

Download free and completely useless apps for your iPad.

Watch four seasons of Psych on instant streaming Netflix.

Snip off your split ends, one by one.

Paint and re-paint your fingernails and toenails.

Take a picture of the dog in his Halloween to come!

Post Nasal Drip

Well, you got past the title without throwing up, so good for you. I am, as the title of this post suggests, sick as a dog right now. I have some lovely sore throat-nausea-fever-raging sinus headache virus that descended on me on Tuesday. It's not pretty. I am looking down the barrel of my last week at my job followed immediately by my trip to the rally in D.C. so I am saving up my energy and trying to get well. I might not do a lot of blogging this week, but rest assured, there will be lots of stories and pictures from the rally!

The Face Of Pure Evil

This is Callie, Satan's cat. She is my lurker enforcer. She wants you to comment, and Callie gets what she wants. So comment often, and don't say I didn't warn you if you don't.

My Irish Roots

This hat is a belated birthday gift from my grandma.  It is a hat straight from Ireland and I adore it.  What do you think?

Bits And Pieces

"You know your dog has a human soul."  That was a comment from a lady at the gas station last week as she gazed at Arrow in the back seat of the car.  Yes he does crazy lady, yes he does.
