I’m done dealing with Black’s Photography.  First, their website says the store opens at 8am and I arrive early only to find that it opens at 9am.  Fine.  I go to my morning meeting and then race over there to print up some (REALLY LATE) Christmas Greeting cards.  That’s when I discover there are size limits to their photos (not mentioned on the site) and that even though I was told that I could create greeting cards with a blank template, it turns out that I can only add a photo to a template with a TERRIBLE border.  It’s a wreath and it says ‘Merry Christmas’ in Comic Sans MS font.  That’s ‘The Holiday‘ terrible.

Now I’m in touch with a print shop to see if I can get the cards made in time, but I’m getting the impression that it’s too late.  Bah.  I should’ve just gone to Kinko’s in the middle of the night last night.

In happier news, as of 2pm yesterday, I’ve completed over 95% of my Christmas shopping.  The last 5% is spoken for and will be picked up on saturday.  Most of the gifts are even wrapped (in one form or another) and ready for the long commute to the Ottawa Valley this weekend.  Now, if the work week would only end, we could get on to the gift unwrapping and feasting on delectable edibles.

Honestly, Christmas would be a lot better without the stress and rush.  Hey, look!  I’m the first person ever to say that!

    I bloody well can’t stand Comic Sans. It sucks the good out of anything it’s applied to. Generally, I think less of someone who uses Comic Sans for any reason, business or personal. Usually I delete emails sent in Comic Sans without even reading them. Whenever I see a small business who uses CS on a sign or brochure, I want to summon Chuck Norris to administer the necessary. If someone broke into my email account and changed my signature to read anything is Comic Sans, I’d go postal. Worst font ever. It’s like the mullet of typography, ONLY a mullet can be ironic in certian situations, whereas Comic Sans sucks always, no matter what.

    For some strange reason, Brad… your comment appears in Comic Sans MS. You’ve turned into your own worst enemy!
    On a completed unrelated note, having full edit privileges for this blog allows me to do hilarious things. Bwahahaha.
