We hope you’ll consider sending us a donation of $10 or more for no reason whatsoever.

I forgot to wish you a happy Pearl Harbor Day yesterday, although I’m not sure if this qualifies as a real holiday with presents because Hallmark doesn’t have a card for it. You might want to write your congressman about this. (As if he’d give a shit, right?)

Incidentally, if you’re an observant Howdygram reader you may have noticed by now that Tuesday’s design tweaks have been changed to something else already. This includes the color of all the links, another wood background (again) in the banner logo, a different font and color for the banner tagline, revised sidebar titles and assorted other minor horseshit. At this point I could exclaim that I’m so thrilled with the new look I’ll never change anything ever again ... but that would be a lie. I change things all the time. I’m a designer, I’m compulsive and I drive myself crazy. Thank you for putting up with me.

Can I tell you something really exciting? The Howdygram Store is racking up lots of sales for the holidays! Just in the last 24 hours I’ve sold mugs, a monogrammed bottle opener, passport covers, three iPhone cases and a bunch of greeting cards. This is a huge hoo-hah for me, people. Plus I also just found out that is using several of my products for their annual year-end promotion, including a mug design that I uploaded only a couple of days ago. Holy crap! I’M A FUCKING SUCCESS!
This might be a fine time to promote The Howdygram Store for Hanukkah and Christmas presents. We’ve got a huge line of adorable, affordable products (all designed by yours truly) for everybody on your list. Let me know [click here] if you want a few suggestions or need a little help navigating through my store for the first time.

I’ve got a few more FREE FONTS for you! This time it’s quite an eclectic mix ... one script, a few hand-drawn sans serif fonts, an elegant display font (“Calma”) and a collection of organic dingbats (“Dingfleur”). My personal favorites are the “Billgrotia” duo and “Tasty Birds.” Which ones do you like? I’ll include download links below the graphic in case you want to snag a few for yourself. Don’t forget to tell your friends and relatives, okay?

NOTE. Even though these fonts are all available at no charge, we hope you’ll consider sending us a donation* of $10 or more for no reason whatsoever.

*Just kidding. We don’t need the money.

Here’s a breaking news item from our How to Prevent a Brain Hemorrhage department! Ever since Election Day I’ve had a very hard time trying to reintroduce politics as a regular feature in the Howdygram because I’m terrified that my goddamn head will explode if I write about our money-grubbing president-elect and his self-dealing offspring from hell. So for now just continue to enjoy our mindless chatter and free fonts until I’m ready to rip Trump a new one. (It won’t be a long wait, I promise you.)

I appreciate your support. Thank you for reading this.
