My favorite blogger has always been and I dare say always will be Metalia. If you do not read her, go read this post, come back and you’ll know why I adore her so.

If you do read her?

Enjoy this-what happens when an overtired Jew and a punchy Mormon stay on chat too late.


M: How WAS the Hallmark thing, btw? (Asking about the day I spent touring Hallmark world headquarters in Kansas City last month.)

C: Amazing. I want to have its babies.

M: Yeah?

C: When Gabi says “Casey sort of fainted when she encountered this room. ” she meant “Casey sort of died when she encountered this room.” My dream is to work there. Ironically Kansas City is where we wanted to end up in the first place.

M: MAKE IT HAPPEN. You are one of those people that seems to be able to do that.

C: And then i can have hallmark babies and send everyone Hallmark cards about them.

M: DO IT DO IT DO IT “So, you’ve gotten into your first fender bender!” “Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day” etc., etc.

C: “There really are some days kids are only good for tax deductions!”

M: HA! “You know what you do for a pulled groin? Nothing. Feel better…whenever”
Okay, so maybe that one’s not the best
But someone in my office just pulled his groin!

C: it made me lol.

M: What card do I send him, Casey? THERE ARE NO PULLED GROIN CARDS!

C: “You make me LOL when no one else can, Happy Anniversary.” “If a blogger LOLS and there is no keyboard to type with, DID IT REALLY HAPPEN?”

M: There should be twitter-centric cards, too. “If I could follow you 10 times, I would. Happy Valentine’s Day, lover.”
“Sorry you only got five comments on that last post, Blogger. You’ll get StumbledUpon soon!”

C: “I love you enough NOT to send an e-card…cherish me.”
“Don’t let the fail whale get you down, sport!”

M: “I want to retweet our love for all the world to see.” So, basically, what I’m saying here is that you and I should MAKE OUR OWN GREETING CARD COMPANY.

C: NO KIDDING. etsy here we come.

M: PEOPLE WOULD BUY THEM, I don’t know if that’s sad or not, but whatever.

C: I KNOW. I’ll make a potato stamp of the twitter bird!

M: I have ribbon, so.

C: I have a graphic design degree!

M: I have…still, just some ribbon
but it’s pretty!
pretty ribbon!

C: never underestimate ribbon, hallmark had frillions of ribbons. FRILLIONS!

M: And also, I can do calligraphy. Frillions, you say?

C: I have good handwriting…

M: We should do this, this might be my sleep deprivation talking, but STILL.


Who wants to be our first customer?

(Oh, and my legs from the other day? Me being too lazy to unpack my big girl razor and instead using the disposable two blade razor which was readily available, and also which was apparently half bloodthirsty vampire.)


  1. I would totally buy cards from you guys!!

    pgoodnesss last blog post..Deep thoughts

  2. You guys are crackertastic.

    VDogs last blog post..Boozeday – Drinking your greens

  3. ME ME ME! I come from a long line of Hallmark lovers, but your cards are super appealing, especially the twitter-themed ones. But I would have Hallmark’s babies, too. Seriously. My mom? Has a PLATINUM Gold Crown card. It’s kind of embarassing. We go to the mall or whatever and she whips it out to pay for her 30 cards she’s buying and the sales clerks start calling people out of the stock room to look at it because they’ve never seen a platinum one in real life!

    Jen L.s last blog post..School’s Out For Summer (And Now I Go To Work)

  4. Love it!!

    Kristins last blog post..Where oh where is my clean little house?

  5. My bday falls on Talk Like A Pirate Day…Sept. 19. So, I’m all over Talk Like a Pirate cards. πŸ™‚ Go for it!!

  7. I really need to chat with you more often. I would totally buy your cards!

    Jens last blog post..Why I Love Bad Weather

  8. Ok, I was totally lost in the beginning and the middle the end kinda made sense, lol.

  9. hmmmmmm…..

    Keris last blog post..Fresh Bootie Holders

  10. Yes, would totally buy your cards!
    Also, you have a graphic design degree??? I didn’t know that! That’s so neato.

    Megs last blog post..Fractured

  11. I LOVE Metalia, too! And I finally got to meet her on Monday, which was all kinds of awesome.

    Camels & Chocolates last blog post..Big A, Little A, What Begins with A?

  12. Camels & Chocolate….Damn you bloggers meeting up. Why doesn’t anyone ever visit Cleveland? Cleveland rocks.

    Casey… Cleveland has American Greetings and I have been there a dozen times because the kids model and are some cards. That’s not the point though. The point is… that I too LOVE going inside. My dream job. And it’s virtually next door.

    Perhaps it’s time for me to get my foot in the door. I would faint. πŸ˜‰

    OHmommys last blog post..A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

  13. You are hilarious. I’ve not read Metalia before, but will now.


  14. I would buy Casey Cards.

    Avitables last blog post..Censored, part deux

  15. I’ve got a hot glue gun! I’ll even invest in a bedazzler if I can work for your newly formed etsy company! I was a, like, a sorority girl, so not only can I use aforementioned items, but also puffy paint, and know how to sing/cheer/chant about it. If you ding me for production, I can totally be spirit department. And as for your poor legs, I hope you’ve recovered!

  16. Oh, you. You know the feeling is mutual. Now, break out your potato stamp, missy. We gotta get to the card makin’. I will bring…the ribbon. IT’S ALL I HAVE. Sigh. xoxo

    metalias last blog post..I swear, the "punch"segue is entirely coincidental.

  17. “Blogger’s Block blows. I hope you post soon!”

  18. You have a graphic design degree? Who knew?

  19. I’m pretty good at rhyming. so hit a girl up, if you must.

  20. If y’all were actually selling these cards maybe I would have been able to buy my friend an actual graduation card instead of just one with a dog wearing a newspaper hat…what do you have for that says “hey congrats you finally got out of college, 5 schools and 7 years later, hope you get to go back for 4 more”?

    Danis last blog post..If this is part of a "blog carnival", i’m pretty sure i’m the freak show…

  21. Hells yeah, I’d buy those cards! Seriously.

    And don’t be upset that I’m probably going to use FRILLIONS now. Trust me, if it’s in a blog, I’ll credit you for the brilliancy.

    Joe @ Irrational Dads last blog post..The Non-Dad Stuff

  22. If there’s a neglected market, it’s twitter-centric Valentine’s Day cards.

  23. Um…OW, on the legs. Really. I was hoping, even though it would have been messy, that it was Jelly, because, ow! That was a lot of cuts! Poor girl.

  24. Oucher on the legs!

    And the cards-I would so buy them.

    Domestic Extraordinaires last blog post..Tuesday-the Giveaway Post

  25. obviously, you know I love you both.
    and obviously, would buy your cards.

  26. That had me dying laughing!

    Brees last blog post..4 a.m.

  27. Pure awesomeness! The blogger cards are definitely an underserved market. And I’m all about anything with ribbon.

    Caras last blog post..Sickness Comes On Horseback But Departs On Foot – Dutch Proverb

  28. You guys crack me up. You are both up there among my favorite bloggers!

    Jills last blog post..Will you still love me tomorrow?

  29. DO IT, those are hilarious lines and Hallmarks (and all other normal greeting cards) suck. They never say the things you want them to say, which is why I make my own.

    Elizabeth Kaylenes last blog post..I’m the asshole

  30. JustShireen says:

    My two favorite bloggers unite!

    I think it’s fair to say I’d buy those cards. heh.

  31. I’m there
    I haz pretty handwriting and creativity and stuff

    not really πŸ˜‰

    rachel-asouthernfairytales last blog post..And It’s Not Even My Birthday

  32. I love the photos. πŸ™‚

  33. OMG- you two are unstoppable! Please make the cards!! πŸ™‚

    Reagans last blog post..Snow Rollas

  34. Y’all are six kinds of special!! I held it together until I got to frillions, that got me, now my husband wants to know why I’m so cheerful at 2:20am πŸ˜€

  35. I, for one, have always found the dearth of pulled-groin cards absolutely appalling. I think there’s a niche market for you there

  36. I would totally buy your greeting cards! “Thanks for the comment you left on my post. It really cracked me up/made me feel better/” “Congratulations on reaching 2,000 Twitter Followers!”

    Cards by Moosh and Metalia, coming soon to an Etsy shop near you!
