10:27 am - Elevator Conversations! A Birthday Card by fomato
So this is hilarious and a half.
Remember when I blogged “7 Random/Weird Things About My Significant Other” a while back, wherein I changed the rules of a meme to focus on Damon instead of me? Well, that post turned out to be a favorite among friends, including all kinds of people I had no idea were reading. Everyone liked how D loves elevator conversation.
Our friend Emmie Hsu, of fomato cards, asked “permission” to use the idea for a birthday greeting card. Then, out of the blue, she sent us the card last week.
I love it!! Both Damon and I love how it turned out so much!
I now present to you . . .

She tried to work in D's favored “Days of the Week,” but it didn't fit—at least not in this card. She got more input from our friend Calvin and used Frankie's “Living the dream.”
I love all fomato cards so much, you guys. I use nothing else. They are hilarious, gorgeously illustrated, high quality, relevant, totally indie, and smack of Asian American pop culture flava.
(Yes, I said flava. You have no idea how much I resist yo.)
So get thee to fomato.com for a hi-larious reading experience! Each card is short, punchy, and perfect for someone you know. Before you know it, you’ll have read them all. You’ll wind up ordering, too, because her cards totally inspire that “I-have-to-get-this-for-So-and-so!” reaction.
So much greatness,
A few more of my favorites:
ramen noodle festival
school o dissatisfaction (This one's perfect for pessimists, optimists, and people who love mangoes)
Here is Damon’s favorite:
Which ones are yours?
Photos from Writer’s Day are still coming! This is one of the rules of writing: Never deliver what you promised. That keeps readers coming back.
Thanks for all the congrats, though—here, on Facebook, and everywhere!
Now get to fomato.com!
Damon’s favorite is apparently fomato’s current bestseller. I am mortified.
