Attached is a picture of my St Bernard, Jake, in the first of 29 tries to get a good picture of him with the PetSmart Santa.
Hope you have a great Christmas and New Year’s!
My PO Box has been bouncing holiday cards and today I figured out why!
See, I had a payment due on my PO Box a few weeks ago– so I went online to do it but the stupid USPS kept konking out when it tried to process my credit card. It kept resetting to the ‘pay’ page and I was like clicking “Process” over and over again. (It’s kind of a wonky website as is). Finally it just brought up a broken link. And I got paranoid it charged my card like 10x– and made a mental note to double check my bill to make sure I don’t get charged a whole bunch of times.
But in my head somehow I thought I had definitely renewed the payment. I assumed it had to have gone through at least once. And in the sad few days recently I’ve been going back to my PO Box and only seeing a card or two in there I’ve been all WTF! Until the other day when I got a bill in there saying I had a payment due and I was all, ‘Oh no! And this morning I went on line to triple check I paid the bill but it said PAYMENT DUE! And I was all, ‘Oh no!’ That konked out situation never processed once!
So if anyone out there has a bounced holiday card. PLEASE RESEND IT! (Didn’t this happen last year?) I’d like to have it if you sent one. I hang em all up in my house over my mirror thing. And apologies for the inconvenience.
And WATCH Matt’s video (Dollar Store Christmas) after the jump. Friend of this website!—

3 days ago it looked like we wouldn’t finish the “Dollar Store Christmas” video in
time for Christmas. As the song says, “I was out of luck”, and we were going to have
to wait until November 2011 to get the video and song out there. However, our luck
changed for the better and we finished the project this afternoon. The video is up on
youtube and rarin’ to go. Here is the link to the video.
Enjoy! Please post the link when you have the chance, and have yourself a very merry dollar store Christmas!
