In which we're total teenagers

Okay, have you heard of Brian Regan? If not, you should. Hence why I'm talking about him. Basically he's the greatest stand-up comic ever, and we quote him all the time.

So he does this bit on greeting cards - including "Just Because" cards. I mean, you could send a hundred Just Because cards to someone in the phone book, and they can't even ask why you did it, right?!

So that's what we did.


We sent some to family, some to friends, some to random phone book people, and a couple celebrities.

And of course we had to send one to Brian Regan himself.


And Obama. I mean, why not? I bet he actually reads this one. It's hilarious. At any rate, his security team will get a good laugh.


All in all, we sent out twelve bits of sunshine into the abyss that is the United States Postal System.

And we laughed our heads off doing it.

And... you have officially reached hero status in my eyes.

Two whole fig newtons?!

Brian Regan is constantly quoted at my house and my almost thirteen year old daughter wanted nothing but tickets to his concert next month.

We HAFTA try this!

Thanks for the heads up!

Such a fun idea. I love it. Wondering if my husband would go for it. . . .

I don't know if anyone has said this a hundred times already, but you should totally write a book. The LDS market is hungry for non-fiction/self-help type books, and you've totally got a winner here. You could just do 52 dates, starting with the first week of January. Some will tie in to holidays, others will be spontaneous "jar" dates. But seriously, this is such a great idea. I borrow yours all the time. (And if you really do decide to do this, I can help you with all kinds of stuff like how to navigate submissions, etc. It's easy when you know what you're doing, I promise.)

That's awesome. I hope Obama reads it.

Listen to Melanie. She's smart like that. (And I'll help you prep your manuscript before turning you over to Melanie's ministrations.)

You can erase this once you see it but I had to tell you to protect yourself. If that is your real return address on the envelopes it is very visible in the photo of all the envelopes!

Very cute, let me know if you get any responses!

That is SO hilarious.... random notes to people you don't even know. I chuckled out loud. I wish my hubby would do that with me. But I doubt it!

Oh, and I totally want to know what you wrote to Obama.
