February 12, 2010

The red cards are too exciting for you? We’ve designed one you’ll want to send, if you’re a dull man:

With light gray border and mild wording.


New Year’s Resolutions

January 1, 2010

Most dull men don’t need to make resolutions. The DMC is a two-step program (not a twelve-step program): (1) We admit we are dull. (2) We’re going to keep it that way. We like the way we are.

But, if you think you need to make a few resultions, perhaps only to fine-tune a few behaviors, here are suggestions that have come in to us over the years:

  • Floss more
  • Clean slippers regularly
  • Arrange refrigerator by sell-by dates at least once a month
  • Make certain staplers are full
  • Check batteries
  • Phone mother
  • Brush our Hush Puppies nightly
  • Check on slippers
  • Eat Velveeta instead of brie
  • Drink club soda instead of Perrier
  • If tempted to eat some Ben and Jerry’s, eat only their vanilla (it’s wonderful [exclamation point removed])
  • Balance checkbook
  • Check slippers again.

New Year’s Eve: what will dull men be doing?

2010  2010  2010  2010  2010  2010  2010  2010
2010  2010  2010  2010  2010  2010  2010  2010

Many of us stay home. Why bother with all the noise at New Year’s Eve parties? And drunk drivers? It’s safer and more relaxing to stay home. What to do there? Practice writing 2010 over and over again. Then you will be ready to hit the ground running the next day — you will be prepared to write the correct year when writing checks and other documents.

Following Santa with NORAD

December 24, 2009

I enjoying  Christmas Eve by watching NORAD’s tracking of Santa Claus:, Sitting at home, nice fire in the fireplace, a cup of tea, Christmas can’t be much better than this, can it? It sure beats going out on the icy roads to noisy parties.
