About the Get Fuzzy series: House cats are known to be aloof, but “cat-titude” reaches new heights in Get Fuzzy, the bitingly hilarious comic strip from cartoonist Darby Conley. Get Fuzzy is a wry portrait of single life, with pets. At the center of this warm and fuzzy romp is Rob Wilco, a single, mild-mannered ad executive and guardian of anthropomorphic scamps Bucky and Satchel. Bucky is a temperamental cat who clearly wears the pants in this eccentric household. Satchel is a gentle pooch who tries to remain neutral, but frequently ends up on the receiving end of Bucky’s mischief. Together, this unlikely trio endures all the trials and tribulations of a typical family…more or less.

Monday-Haters Unite: The Garfield 2014 Wall Calendar Is Here!

Garfield 2014 calendar

You know what the best thing is about Tuesday? It’s NOT Monday! If you follow me on Facebook you already know I’m not a fan of Mondays…most people aren’t. One thing I AM a fan of is Garfield, so I was thrilled to receive an early review copy of the Garfield 2014 Wall Calendar. Each month features a new “I Hate Mondays” comic from cartoonist Jim Davis, creator of the Garfield series.

Not only will you want one for yourself, but the calendar makes a perfect choice for the annual office gift exchange at work, and a cute teacher gift from the kiddos, too. I’m planning to snag some extra copies for gift giving because there always end up being a few people who I run out of ideas for, and you just can’t go wrong with this one!

Garfield January

The Garfield 2014 Wall Calendar is available at Amazon, from the Calendar Store and through local retailers, so be sure to snag some copies now and guarantee that every Monday-hater and Garfield-lover on your Holiday Gift List will enjoy 12 months of hilarious Monday-bashing for 2014!

My Dog: The Paradox. A Lovable Discourse from The Oatmeal

Daisy & I managed to get our paws on an early review copy of My Dog: The Paradox: A Lovable Discourse about Man’s Best Friend, the new book by Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), but the rest of you won’t have to wait long since it’s being released next week! It’s a little book, but one of those really special ones that you’ll find yourself thinking about at random times, and that you’ll pick up to flip through frequently.

The Oatmeal book, My Dog: The Paradox

How one little book can manage to be both so hilarious AND heart-breaking I don’t know, but it does. In a few short pages, it captures and coveys everything that is true and funny and silly and sad about having a dog in your life. And just like a dog, it will make you cry some, but it will make you laugh a whole lot more.

If you’re familiar with The Oatmeal then you’ve probably already seen the online comic version of My Dog: The Paradox and might be wondering why you’d bother to get the book.

First of all, it’s been redrawn in full-color (the online version is black & white).  Also, there’s nothing like holding a real copy of a book in your hands and flipping through the pages. I’m a fan of the library and Kindle too, but trust me, this is one of those books you’ll be happy you own. And at around ten bucks it’s a deal.

If you’re still looking for a reason, supporting The Oatmeal by buying his book is a nice way to say Thanks if his free online works have ever: cured your Monday blues; provided much needed workday distraction; or just made you appear cooler and funnier than you really are when you shared them with friends on Facebook.

As of now, there are no reviews posted on Amazon or anywhere else that I can find, so you’ll just have to take my word for it and buy a copy here! Release date is May 7, but it’s available for pre-order now at $8.99 ($9.99 list).

I’ve already seen My Dog: The Paradox online and can tell you it will make you laugh AND cry (seriously). Here’s a funny except to give you an idea of what you can look forward to:
