What Happened to the Classics?

And I don't mean books...

My office just announced that we were going to have an impromptu party on Monday to celebrate Valentines Day. Now, I'm not sure how it's "impromptu" since we have advanced notice, but I'm game if it involves chocolate.

On my way home I decided it would be fun to buy valentines to put in everyone's mailbox at work. In my head, I imagined picking up a box of Ziggy, or perhaps some Superman know, the kind we all got when we were kids (well, if you were a kid in the 1980's). So imagine my surprise when I showed up at my local CVS and all they had were cards that featured characters that I didn't even recognize.

Leaving the store totally disappointed, I decided to just do my own cards this year. I found this great site where I can download vintage cards.

Okay, so this post had nothing to do about writing, self-publishing, or anything book related.
