I want to taint-punch every person responsible for this asshattery. Seriously. It’s a blanket with sleeves! (Read: I’m such a dimwit that I’ll pay money instead of turning my robe around backwards.)

This has:

  2. Annoyingly loud music, like someone grabbed my remote.
  3. Annoying song set to the Macarena. The fucking Macarena. 

Someone must pay.

I have a confession

I’m a total font snob. I’m planning my wedding in Las Vegas, and because everything books up so ridiculously fast, I’m researching everything about 10 months in advance.

I know nothing about flowers except some are pretty, some make me sneeze, and some look like bouquets I used to send my grandmother. Therefore, I have no starting point for searching florists in Las Vegas.

I began eliminating by price, purchase minimums, etc. Then I began eliminating those sites created entirely using comic sans font. 


I refuse to use it. I refuse to take anyone seriously who uses it. The florist may think that it’s playful and whimsical. That is what they want you to think.

Here’s what I think when I see it: OMG I HAZ LOTSA FLOWERZ LULZ!

That, or Comic sans’ bastard cousin, Kristen ITC. That is not professional. 

Luckily, I found several sites that featured a beautiful portfolio and prices within my budget. And no comic sans anywhere. Funny - the sites with comic sans were actually on the high end of the spectrum. 

I am a font snob. When you use comic sans, I judge you. That is my confession.
