Wroooooooo! It's me again, pups and kitties! Can you believe it, The Girl is letting me post AGAIN today? And she's taken me around to some of my furends' bloggies to see what they've been up to, and she promises we'll see evfurrybody this weekend! (Well, at least the most recent posts, she's got us so far behind!)
Anywroo, last night, The Girl got out the DWB Holiday Card List, some paper, a pen, a calculator, and our bankbook. She said we had to figure out how many cards we could afford to send, and she just about fainted when she saw how much CanadaPost is charging for postage nowadays!
So, she was muttering to herself a lot. This is what I was doing:
because Cat TV was much more interesting than The Girl and all that math. (Please excuse the funny eyes; something's happening with The Girl's photo editor. Also, pretend you don't see the massive pile of recycling in the background.)
See how much more interested I am in Cat TV?
Then, The Girl made a funny noise. Kind of like choking, but flemmy (Girlie has a cold). I looked at her:
Here is a closer shot of the look that I gave her when I asked her what the funny noise was all about:
She said that unless I wanted to give up treats for the next six months, we can only afford to send 24 holiday cards. I was unimpressed with this news, as you can see:
Not acceptable, I told her.
But she took me through the math, and so I have to agree. (I can't possibly go without treats for six months, and I know none of my furends would want me to!)
We were going to send an e-card to evfurryone who is accepting them, and we're still going to do that. We were also going to send a card by snail mail to those who were accepting snail mail only. But at 96 cents for a stamp to go to the US, and $1.60 for the other international places, our little budget was soon stretched way too far!
So we chose 14 of our furends to send a card to by snail mail, along with 6 of the furries we don't know who live in the US and 4 of the furries we don't know internationally. (The Girl used a random number generator to pick, because she didn't know how else to be fair.) Evfurryone who is accepting e-cards will get one, too.
We are going to mail our paper cards on Tuesday. And Lorenza said that last year, she sent out her e-cards in the first week of December, so I think that's what we'll do, too.
I wish we could send evfurrybody paper cards by snail mail! I love getting mail, and I'm sure all the doggies and kitties and hammies and even hoomans out there love it to.
Even though I agree that the numbers say what they say, I am still not impressed with The Girl. Now she's ignoring me to write on the cards! This whole holiday card business is turning out to involve me much less than I like! At least I'll get to open the cards that come for me in the snail mail!
Have a good weekend, my furends!
