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.

Record Setter

I did something I never imagined I would ever do a few weeks ago - ordered some birthday cards that retail for $14 and $16 ! The image above is our $14 "large but cute yellow bird" (as described by its makers.) Lift up its wing to reveal a little pop-up flower bouquet - press the button to hear it wish you Happy Birthday in Japanese - and sing a little bit. It's just kind of irresistible - and I couldn't resist ordering it even as I wondered - will anyone ever buy this card? As soon as it arrived and we put it in the card rack, I got my answer - yes ! The other card is a singing animal orchestra - couldn't find a good photo, but it's equally cute.
