Best Intentions

First of all, soon I'll be off to Thanksgive, just like you. And like you, I won't be thinking about computers much--so there will be a content shortage, but that's okay, because you won't be at work, bored, killing time at Steady Mobbin'.

Monday night I was helping to make cards for old people that are all alone and don't have anyone to celebrate the holidays with. I tried to make nice cards for them, but I got distracted by other ideas and I made all of these cards which went right into the "Don't Pile."

At first I was making a card with a snake on it, but the top of the snake's head made me think of an army helmet, so I made this WWII inspired card:

As you can see, I made this other card that I wound up sticking inside my war card.

Here's a good one that I spiced up with the shiny interior of a candy wrapper.

One of the rules was that we couldn't put our names on the cards as the old, lonely people would try to hunt us down and adopt us. When I saw a scrap piece of paper that looked just like a cell phone I knew exactly what to do!

This might be the best one . . .

Finally, the holes in a piece of paper that had been used to make a snowman made me think of smoke rings and that's how this card was born . . .

I'm pretty sure the Don't Pile got tossed out, but if your grandma gets one of these cards then 1) I'm sorry and 2) It wouldn't have happened if you hadn't visited her more!

I tried to justify the existence of my lesser blog with the thought that you live in an area where there is much more to write about, but alas with this last entry I am reminded that it matters not where you live but where lives in you. Yes, where lives in you? Where lives in me? That is the question I must now ask myself. Though I must first brush my teeth. Brigham, where lives in me? Where lives in ME?

Those cards are humorous. Very. And, what people don't realize is that old, alone people are old and alone for a REASON. LOL.

Dearest Smash,

What you don't realize is that your humor is the reason you are young and alone.

I'd rather the comments section be dedicated to me and my debatable awesomeness. Let's all be friends?

sorry to brigham and sorry to "smash." What i didn't realize was that people don't like being made fun of... Well, no I already knew that, but what some people don't realize is that you are justified in making fun of one who impliments horrid humor when making fun of another. "LOL."

This message has been dedicated to Brigham. and his very debatable awesomeness.

brigham, you are the best murderer around. i rediscovered your blog today and suffered death by laughter. i needed a good killing because i injured my foot and cannot work and am in philly way,WAY more than I'm used to being. those cards just sliced me to shreds(or shredded me to slices). it was awesome. thank you.

oh and i thought that cassian was humorous AND that smash AND that anonymous and thought you were a tiny bit harsh but maybe you know better the end.
