So if, like me, you often have an "oh shit" moment at least once a week when you realize that today or tomorrow is a major birthday/holiday/anniversary of your best friend's nose job and you've neglected to put a card in the mail, SomeECards.com is perfect for you.
SomeEcards combines two of my favorite things: snark and simplicity. Anything that I send out needs to have the appropriate amount of sarcasm and irony to match my overly sarcastic and ironic personality. Hallmark usually just doesn't do it for me. I mean, I'll admit that in certain situations I'll send out a straight-forward ecard. My grandmother LOVES those MushyGushy.com ecards where I paste her head and my head on cartoon bodies and they sing the Golden Girls theme song. She writes back adorable responses where she tells me, "No, THANK YOU for being a friend! XO, Nana". But Nana's not hip and her sense of humor was cultivated sometime in the
SomeEcards has a card for every occasion. This year on her birthday, I sent my mom the card that says "Today’s the Anniversary of You Being Expelled from Your Mother’s Uterus". See, it's funny because I was expelled from HER uterus. It works on so many levels!
I think my siblings especially love it when I send them baby themed cards that express my true feelings towards my nieces and nephews. It’s not that I don’t love them, because I do very much. But they live on the other side of the country, airfare is so expensive, and newborns are boring. They don’t do anything! I like to visit my siblings’ progeny after they’ve learned a couple tricks. Who wants to go to a circus where the elephant just stands in the center ring? No one! You go because you know at some point that elephant is going to balance on one leg on top of a giant ball. When my sister starts to guilt me about coming to see her new baby, I fire off this card:
If that one doesn’t stop the nagging, I have to take it to the next level and send her this one:
Usually that gets her to be quiet for a few weeks. I don’t even have to write text to accompany it. The ecard is straight to the point and delivers my message for me.
I’m eagerly awaiting the day that some fine, upstanding gentleman saves us both a few weeks/months/years of heartache and sends me this one:
So next time you realize that today has some significance to someone somewhat important in your life, send them a little love note from SomeEcards.com. If they know you well enough, they’ll be able to grasp the sentiment beneath the snark.
