I don’t even know why I bother

So after an astounding 120+ entries in the Automat sweepstakes we have two winners!  Why do we have two winners when there’s only one prize?  Because I told my 3-year-old to pick just one number from 1-120-something and she doesn’t follow directions well.  Anyway, the always entertaining Ms. Sassy Pants wins the Hubba Bubba ring!  Yay!  (Also, Ms. Pants, check the package carefully because I think you’re also getting some kinky sex toy too ’cause that’s the kind of sh*t that happens when you shop at the Automat.)  Secondly, Laura from Laura’s Zoo, you win a special handmade gift too, both because Hailey picked your number as well, and also because you are my own personal hero.   (Laura lost her husband, Jeff, in a car accident two months ago, leaving her with 5 young children to raise alone.  She makes me laugh and she makes me cry.  Put her on your blogroll, peeps.)


Hey, did you know that if you get bored enough you can use postage stamps to make yourself fake nails? 

Because you totally can:


One would have thought that my husband would have been all kinds of excited about my new marvelous manicure but he was just pissed off that I’d depleted his dorky superhero stamp collection to make my fake nails.  My talents are totally wasted on this guy.  At this point I don’t even want to show him the awesome découpage job I did on the guest bathroom toilet tank with his Wolverine collection.  Jerk.

And on a surpringly related note, I can’t stop watching the trailer for “Italian Spiderman”:  Un super festi puncho puncho ram ram. Un fantastico voyage de spidermafication!!!  Italian Spiderman totally kicks regular Spiderman’s ass.

  1. Outstanding manicure, Jenny. Now I know what to do with the 7 books of out of date Christmas stamps from how many years ago was 34 cents…

    Thanks for the link to Laura. I “lost” my first husband in a car accident a whole lot of years ago but I only had one baby to deal with.

  2. Christ on a cracker, I read Laura’s blog and it actually brought tears to my eyes. You know, the salty kind, not the glycerine ones I usually use to fake empathy and shit.

    On a happier note, your nails fucking rule. I want that look. Can you post a how-to? Serious.

  3. Tarot is thinking of Bubba, and hoping he makes it, with flying colors. (Sad kitty face, for which there is no emoticaon.) I am also thinking of Bubba.

    And, speaking as someone who knows that you like The Sandman, YOU SHOULD KNOW NOT TO F@&# WITH THE SUPERHEROES.

    Anyway, positive vibes toward your kitties, both Bubba and Posey, who should not have to live under the threat of detoeification.

  4. Your nails are perfectly shaped…and long…

    And now, apparently, you can mail yourself to anywhere in the Continental United States.

    Ummm, you don’t contain hazardous chemicals, do you?

  5. Those nails are *awesome*. Seriously, if I came home with nails like that, my husband would probably jump me immediately.

    (also, thanks for the happy anniversary wishes! :)!)

  6. Those nails are amazing. I would so marry you if I were straight. I may have to create some kind of crazy drag tribute act instead.

  7. I love those nails and I’m not even a comic person! Bah to Victor for failing to see/appreciate fine art/creativity when it stares him in the face.

    You know if Hailey had done it, he’d have been all over that with praise and compliments.
