I was looking at the remains of an old blog I used to have, I had posted an email I got then. I was not able to help this guy. Don’t you need a flux capacitor for that? Some people need everything handed to them on a silver platter. (email follows)

Hello,

I’m a time traveler stuck here in 2003. Since nobody here seems to be able to get me what I need (safely here to me), I will have to build a simple time travel circuit to get where I need myself. I am going to need an easy to follow picture diagram for a simple time travel circut, which can be built out of (readily available) parts here in 2003. Please email me any schematics you have. I will pay good money for anything you send me I can use. Or if you have the rechargeable AMD dimensional warp generator wrist watch unit available, and are 100% certain you have a (secure) means of delivering it to me please also reply. Send a separate email to me at: (the guy’s email)

Old postcard for customer service

Here’s the gist of a postcard from my personal collection, A guy is demanding a refund for deodorant because his girlfriend still insists that he smells bad. It must have been the 1930’s version of the Clinique counter, because there is a clerk staffing the counter where underarm deodorant is advertised.

Now, our customer service policy would dictate that this man could return the product for a full refund, despite the fact that deodorant cannot counteract the effects of not bathing or brushing your teeth, and it says right on the bottle, that all guarantees are null and void if you are a professional polecat wrestler.

The postcard is from the Tichnor Brothers- Here’s a site I found showing more of the Tichnor Comic Art cards.

Restless Mouse Mouseman on a log.

Sitting around doodling on junk mail. We’ve been trying to refine the idea of our Mr. RestlessMouse Mouseman logo. Is he a man, or a mouse? Obviously, both a man and a computer mouse. But should he become more human-like by growing limbs? Or more like the other kind of mouse, by adding whiskers? I guess that would just muddy the waters.

If he does have legs, I like giving him shoes, untied. It makes him more into someone I can relate to.

Should I get rid of, or shorten, his vestigal cord? Or hook it to a distant computer?

Actually, the main reason this came up, I bought a box of colored gel pens at Staples today.
