Skull Stationary

These days people write emails or text. They just don’t write letters anymore. It seems to be a lost art form. Once upon a time I just loved stationary. I spent entirely too much time and money in my local Hallmark. Over the years all of that stationary has been packed away and relegated to the attic never to be seen or heard from again. I recently got a bee up my butt and decided I wanted to do some letter writing again. As I was searching online for some cool new stationary, my super intelligent Scary Hubby asked, “What about all of that stationary in the attic?” Dumb ass. He just doesn’t get it. I ended up finding this fantastic black Skull Stationary Set on theĀ Vivre site. Plain black with just the simple white skull. Perfect. It even comes with a silver pen because obviously my usual ink of choice, black, would not show up. One problem. It costs $120. Really?!? For 10 envelopes, a pad of paper and a pen? I mean it’s gorgeous, but I’m not convinced that it costs that much to produce. I know, quality paper… yada, yada, yada, but still not buying it. Literally or figuratively. I guess my search will continue on while Scary Hubby keeps mumbling about the box in the attic.

Dead Fred

Dead FredEver get frustrated at work? Ever feel like stabbing your boss with a pen? I am my own boss and even I feel like doing that sometimes. I mean my boss is a total bitch. We all have days like that. Just some more than others. Who really cares about those dumb stress balls. They don’t work. Why don’t you picture yourself holding a pen and thinking about that dumb boss that just reminded you again about remembering to put the new cover sheets on the TPS reports (if you don’t get that reference then you should check out Office Space and see what a really stupid boss is like). Now wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to stab that pen into without worrying about going to jail? That’s what Dead Fred is for! He’s a little red silicone guy that’s actually a pen holder. You can stab that pen into his heart a hundred times and he won’t ever call 911. Just don’t yell out your boss’ name while doing it or it could get you fired.
