Always On My Mind

I spent a lot of time wracking my brain about what to send Todd, the big winner in last week's "pulled it out of my ass" contest. First I checked out basic gifts, coffee mugs, tee-shirts, tote bags, whips and chains, personalized with the Home Fires Logo, of course. Then I remembered, I don't have a logo.

In an attempt to create one, I was distracted by a design program, but that project somehow turned into considering a Café Press online store, where I could display all of my creations. If I ever got to creating anything, that is.

As most of you know, my mind is a little wasteland. After staring blankly at all of the items I could adhere my logo (which was still not created) to, my mind considered other things that could be added to the items. Little blog related catch phrases came to mind. Before long, I was not thinking about Todd. (sorry Todd)

"The best part of waking up, is Lois in your cup"

"Let's give 'em something to Blog about"

"Bloggers do it write"

"You've got questions. We've got Blog"

"Once you go Blog, you never go back... Unless you need a little break, or your stooopid job consumes all of your time"

"Keep talking out of your ass. I need more Blog material"

"Got Blog?"

"Blog, the fresh maker"

"There's no wrong way to eat read a Blog"

"I'm Cuckoo for Blogging"

"Built Blog tough"

"I am so Blogging about this"

"I'd rather be Blogging"

"Blogging makes the world go 'round"

"Blogs don't kill people. People kill Blogs"

"Friends don't let friends Blog while drunk"

It was then I thought about Todd. He isn't a blogger, but he does use the computer.

How about, "All of my real friends live in my computer"

Or maybe, "I gave up my crack habit for the internet"

Everything I considered, seemed to be an insult. How could I possibly insult Todd? I couldn't. So I decided to wait until the Sox won the World Series, and then I'd get him a baseball hat.

Or a poster-sized version of this little gem?

You got slogans? Bring 'em. You think Home Fires needs an online store? And if the cap for Todd is a bad idea, someone hurry and give me a better idea.
