And here’s an explanation of the theory behind this venture…

Greeting Card Emergency #85: A Rat Ate Your Car

Someone borrowed their in-laws’ car — and then a rat got in and caused all kinds of vehicular and domestic turmoil. Here are my three attempts to solve this nice person’s apology problem.

(Apologies for the background. I was so focused on getting good natural face lighting I didn’t realize the lighting behind me looks like The Trailer Park of Dr. Caligari.)

Greeting Card Emergency #83: Canada Day

There simply aren’t enough cards for Canada Day. Now that dearth is one card smaller, if you follow me. (Note: the final joke in this video is a reference to the TV show “Look Around You,” which I learned about from the “Extra Hot Great” podcast, two of whose hosts–Tara Ariano and David T. Cole–are name-checked in this episode. So it all makes sense in context.)

GCE CLASSIC–Greeting Card Emergency #7: Supporting the Troops

Special for Memorial Day, here’s a VERY early GCE from 2009, about what to say to troops who are about to deploy…starring my friend Kristen Rouse, who was then about to deploy. Nowadays she’s a regular commentator on war-related issues (on NPR and in the Times and such places), and she blogs at http://trueboots.wordpress.com/ Thanks for your service, Kristen!

Greeting Card Emergency #82: Unusually Specific Random Compliment

Most “Thinking of You” cards in actual cards stores are necessarily bland and vague. But what if you were allowed to be SPECIFIC with your compliments? Dedicated to Dave’s friends Lisa Nikolidakis and Ophira Eisenberg.

Greeting Card Emergency #80: Can’t Have Sex, Part 2

Sorry for the delay! My car died, so I suddenly had to mail things, buy tickets, make plans, fly from Tallahassee back to Tucson, buy a car, register the car, arrange to receive packages, finish a major side project, and then (big surprise) I got sick. So now, after a week (or so) delay, here is part two of the “Can’t Have Sex” card series — this time for cards FROM a partner who wants to be supportive when their main squeeze is sexually indisposed for a while. Hope these help someone!
