…for this awesome Luke Flowers Arcade Dayz print of Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog playing, obviously, Frogger.

Luke Flowers' "Arcade Dayz" print of Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog playing "Frogger."

He also threw in a few sweet stickers…

Sweet stickers!

…as well as his take on a Press Your Luck Whammy.


Basking in these gifts like Michael Larson,

– Shady


So true.
So true indeed.

I know I said I was going to curb baby photo posts, but that’s fucking adorable,


Baby Shady gifts from the Lattas!

…for Baby Shady’s new reading material and Kermit rattle!

There were also some diapers in there,


…and by “baby dresser” I mean “two used high school locker towers.”

A hint is there.

It’s pretty great, mostly because we now have a place to put this awesome stuff.

Fuck. Yeah.

Eight weeks out,


…we had a Kermit the Frog washcloth we’d use whenever we took a bath.

If you had asked me two days ago what ever happened to it, I would’ve told you our mom probably threw it out or donated it to the Goodwill after we moved away from home. It’s definitely safe to say I hadn’t seen it in nearly two decades.

Last night, Beth gave (what’s left of) it to me as a belated/framed birthday gift.

Oh, the bathtub memories!

It will proudly hang in the bathroom of our new apartment,

…this print from Hungarian artist Aman


…and finally, this original pen and ink illustration that also created by our good friend Marla Campbell.

Marla Campbell!

Needless to say, our walls are quickly filling up.

Fifty (give or take) more pieces to go,


…not only because he decorates his envelopes so adorably (and puts hilarious inside-joke names in the return address)…


…and not because, like me, he communicates only in teenage girl speak…


…but because he sends me original sketches…

The sketch!

…for things that make me both nostalgic and homesick all at once.

The final!

But those other things are pretty alright, too,


…chances are I was wearing these shoes.

Farewell, old friend.

Those Kermit-centric Adidas were given to me by a friend as a Christmas present back in 2011. Since then, I’ve worn them pretty much every day. They were my meeting shoes of choice (they always sparked a conversation), and have touched the ground of eight different countries (nine, I guess, if you include the U.S.).

To be read: Over the last two-plus years, these shoes have been extremely loved.

Sadly, that love was starting to show, and a couple of holes in the soles recently sealed their fate.

So farewell, old friend! I loved slipping my feet into you.

Man, that sounds so dirty.

But wait! Is that a new pair of sweet Adidas I see approaching on the horizon?

Hello, new friend!

Indeed it is!

Also, I’m not entirely saying goodbye. I kept a couple of souvenirs.


It’s shoe hard… to say goodbye… to yesterday,


…while moving into our new place last month.

Having gone to art school, I’ve hung on to a lot of doodles and drawings from friends over the years. These are just a few.

First up, a small bit of copy written by my good friend Dwellephant. This is from back in October of 2000 when we were collectively doing some freelance for a client named marchFIRST.

marchFIRST (which ended up going bankrupt in a little over a year) would host monthly mixers called Digital Cocktail. In the beginning, the events were pretty cool. But like most things, over time, they became bombarded with douche bags.

This is the copy that Dwellephant came up with for a mock invite.

Needless to say, he had come up with something else by deadline.

Next up, this drawing by my good friend (and college roommate) Cesar of a fat and drunken Kermit the Frog. I might be mistaken, but I think he gave me this drawing as a gift on my 18th birthday back on September 25th, 1994.

And one Cesar illustration wouldn’t be complete without another, so next up is this drawing he did of me sometime back in the fall of 1994.

Cesar and I were roommates in room 206, along with our good friends Jocco and Special K. Back then, I went by the name Guido. It was an old nickname I had carried over from working in a comic shop back in Milwaukee.

To this day, Cesar still calls me Guido.

And lastly, I came across this drawing by Cesar’s eldest daughter, Anya.

Anya drew this at the age of five back in April 2002. She recently turned 16.


We asked Anya to draw this so we could use it in “Tastes Like Chicken.” It accompanied the cover story “Can I Have A Cookie?” in May 2002. She also wrote the text for the story. Check it out here.

I have a million of these memories stored away in boxes (much to KB’s chagrin), so I’ll try and dig more of them out again some time soon.

You should see my photo albums,


Spot on,
