Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Curious Lists

My last sales slip of the day. I quickly wrote up the two items: Med School and Porn. As I was giftwrapping them, their purchaser laughed. "That looks funny on paper," she said. I had abbreviated both items - the long version would have been Med School in a Box and Porn for Women XXX (completely G rated by the way.) "We do write up some odd looking lists," I agreed, thinking how I'd been meaning to write a post about this for a long time. If you took our sales slips as pure lists out of context, they would be extremely enigmatic. Some recent examples: Chicken, monster, ninjas. Mouse, Kangaroo, Ego Booster. Food Face, lava, flip. Mind altering goldfish, coffee spill, mini slinky. Panic, Mxyklikker, Rainbow. Or with numbers: 10 car, 10 bubble, 10 boink, 10 fairy. Maybe we should start saving the oddest lists . . .
