A Breaking Bad Cootie Catcher

Posted by on Sep 8, 2013 in Misc. | 0 comments

Am I the only one who’s totally obsessed with the last season of Breaking Bad? No spoilers, here, but I can’t even deal with the suspenseful ending of tonight’s episode. Who lives? Who dies?

Sigh. Now I have to wait a whole seven days to find out. This is pretty cruel. Especially after I marathon watched the other seasons via Netflix. Watching TV in real time can be excruciating. Only three more episodes until the series is over.

How will it end? Your guess is as good as mine, but the folks over at Vulture made a wicked good Breaking Bad paper fortune teller to help us predict the end of this epic TV show. I highly recommend it.

p.s. I’m in love with all this wonderful Breaking Bad fan art.

No. 186: Your Mad Men Character

Posted by on Apr 18, 2012 in Misc. | 0 comments

Yep, that’s me as a Mad Men character on the left. In case it isn’t obvious, I’m the curvy blonde in the middle. (You can Mad Men yourself right here.)

I’m super excited that the new season is finally here, and I think half the fun of watching is thinking about which Mad Men character you’d be. You know, if you could time travel back to this fictional TV office universe.

As much as I’d like to imagine that I’d be a sex pot like Joan or Megan, I think Peggy is probably more my speed. We’re both copywriters and a little overly obsessed with our careers. And, well, fashion and make-up really aren’t my things.

So how about you? Which character do you wish you could be for a week? And which one are you most like in real life?

This cootie catcher can answer the latter. Just download this PDF, print, fold and find out. Please share which character you got in the comments–and why you are or aren’t like him or her!

No. 183: Will Your House Sell?

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in Misc. | 0 comments

It’s spring. And that means the real estate market is heating up right along with the thermometer.

A few signs have popped up on my street just in the past couple of weeks. My nosy, prying self even went to a neighbor’s open house just to see what it looked like. But like anyone selling a house, I’m sure he was thinking, “Will this sell?” (OK, and maybe, “Why must all the rubber-necking neighbors come through?”)

So for everyone hoping to turn that For Sale sign into a Sold one, I’ve created this cootie catcher. It’s mystical powers may help predict the likelihood of you finding a buyer.

Just download this PDF, print, fold and find your house-selling fortune.

Fold one up for a party, happy hour or to have a little fun at work on Friday.

No. 180: Is Your Scale Wrong?

Posted by on Jan 12, 2012 in Misc. | 0 comments

Oh, my.

I finally stepped on the scale for the first time since, oh, early December. And let’s just say that after all that holiday celebrating with cocktails, cookies and other tasty treats, the news wasn’t exactly good.

It’s like someone throwing a glass of cold water into your face. With a piece of broccoli at the bottom. When, you know, you thought another sugar cookie and glass of hot cocoa might be nice.

And that all brings us to today’s cootie catcher, which is really a fun little exercise in denial. The stage right before buying cute gym clothes. Eating salads. And maybe actually going to the gym.

If you’re already onto the weight-loss resolution part, go ahead and skip to the “Dirt Cheap Personal Trainer” cootie catcher.

So: Is your scale wrong? Could it be?

No. 178: Is Your Mom Right?

Posted by on Dec 2, 2011 in Misc. | 0 comments


This is a timely post for the holiday season. When even us adult daughters are more likely to spend a lot of time in close proximity with our moms.

And, you know, moms can’t stop themselves from offering their kids some sort of advice. About your hair. Or clothes. Or kids. (Or in my case, lack thereof.) The possibilities are endless.

Sadly, this unsolicited advice sometimes makes me revert to my surly teenage self. I guess that’s a round about way of saying maybe, just maybe, I should listen to my mom more often.

This cootie catcher can help you separate the good advice from the bad. Or just win an argument.

Download this PDF, print, fold and get a reality check.
