I'll be putting CB on a mug. You're welcome.

So, last night we went out to dinner with some friends/former colleagues and decided to order anything that lit up.

Case in point. 

Also, the subject of this here blog came up, and our friend Denise said “You know, you should have merchandise. Like, a picture of you wearing a Friendapalooza shirt on a mug or something. People would totally buy that.”

Me: “Um, who would want to buy that?”
D: “People! You have fans!”
Me: “Yeah, but that sounds like a lot of work. I mean, I didn’t even blog today, I have a hard enough time keeping up with that.”
CB: “By the way, speaking of your fans, they’re going to be maaaaaad at you.”
Me: “Wait, why??”
CB: “Because last week you said that though you were traveling for work and wouldn’t post on Monday, you PROMISED to post Tuesday.”
Me: “I totally suck. I didn’t post.”
CB: “I know. So all of your mug-buying fans will be writing you hate mail.”
Me: “I deserve it.”

Silence, sipping the glowing drink.

D: “Anyway, so I think you should have merchandise like the Bloggess does.”
Me: “Um, I am nowhere near the Bloggess. She’s hilarious.”
D: “She is. But YOU’RE hilarious too!”
Me: “And should have a mug to prove it?”
D: “Yep.”
Me: “Maybe we should put CB on it. He’s very popular with my readers, they love them some CB.”
CB: “What’s not to love?”
D: “Perfect! A CB mug! And it could be, like, the back of his head since you never show his face, with a CB quote on the front or something.”
CB: “Genius.”
Me: “Um, I think you guys are more into this than is maybe normal?”
D: “No way, your people want CB mugs!”

So, you know, I’m sorry that I’m not giving you guys the obvious merch you’ve been dying to buy. I’m a terrible blogger, and not just because I didn’t write yesterday. I’m so sorry! I’m a monster!

However, to make up for it, I’ll blog tomorrow and, as usual, on Friday. And if I don’t for some reason, it’s because I’m busy designing mugs.

Happy Wednesday! 


  1. *lol* Sign me up for a mug with the back of CB's head on it, please! The perfect holiday gift for that hard to buy for person!

  2. Yesterday I wrote a comment regarding your blog fail on Tuesday. Then I felt mean, so I deleted it, because I'm not mean. I'll have you know though, ALL DAY Tues, I kept checking back. Nothing! You do have people who look forward to reading your blog! CB is right! :) Just loved the post about the flirting. Don't ya hate when 30 yr olds make you feel old? Cause I do, Cause I'm THISCLOSE to 40! ---Amanda
