Hamster Caskets and Bloggiversary Cards – Pauline M. Campos

My friend and fellow Funny Not Slutty writer Alexandra got me thinking a few weeks back when she joyfully celebrated the two-year anniversary of Good Day, Regular People. She wanted to know why no one has invented a line of greeting cards specifically to mark such an occasion and frankly, so do I. In fact, I have a few category suggestions for anyone considering taking that idea and running with it:

Feel free to give these to your favorite bloggers and friends. What would you put on a blogging card?

Also? Google Hamster Caskets. Seriously. It’s actually a THING.

 

Pauline M. Campos Pauline M. Campos is wife to The Husband, mother to “Buttercup,” and has decided that it’s time to make peace with her cellulite.

She got started in newspapers and served as city editor for a few local papers before hitting the big time at The Detroit News and freelancing for the Metro-Detroit based Metro Parent Magazine before taking a break after baby. She’s a featured blogger at www.owningpink.com and contributes to the hilarious www.anarmyofermas.com. Oh right, and her own blog? That’s www.aspiringmama.com. You’re welcome.

She’s also pretty sure God made her lactose intolerant because she refused to stop chewing her ice cream.

  1. I would get the card asking for a definition of “blog…” very funny!

  2. About time, right?

    Yes, these are going to be zinging all over the internet, because what else can you give a blogging buddy on her blogoversary?

    Love seeing this here, Pauline. Funny. Never slutty.

  3. I want a hamster casket. I’ll use it to store candy. Black candy.

    Shaped like hamsters.
