A while ago I Twittered this plea:
Does anyone know of anywhere that I can get Moo-sized cards that aren’t from Moo? I want some, but need to get them in less than 27 weeks.
I recalled a number of people complaining that the Moo cards they ordered for Northern Voice or SXSW took forever to arrive, so I was hoping that there would be a quicker alternative. And Flying Spaghetti Monster bless Twitter, Miss604 came to my rescue with the suggestion that I try Zazzle!
After much hemming and hawing over what to make my cards look like, I settled on two designs: one featuring a photo of my eyes1 and the other featuring a brain2.

And why, you ask, do I need these cards? Because I’m going to BlogHer3 on Thursday!!
My attendance at BlogHer, just like my using Zazzle for my cards (and the above photo of my Zazzle cards), is thanks to Rebecca. About a month ago, she wrote about how she was looking to sell off her BlogHer registration as she was no longer able to attend, so I contacted her and we worked out a deal. So excited!4

3I am a bit choked that Kris won’t be there this year. Every year, Kris goes to Blogher and I’ve been dying to meet her since forever. I guess she’ll just have to come out to Vancouver to visit me some time =)
4Plus, I’m staying at my friend Katie’s place and it will be awesome to see her again!
