Hag Tags and Dead Dogs
Posted by thedarwinexception on February 7, 2008
I finished the hag tags! Finally! They are all done and printed out and they look really cute! It wasn’t even as hard as I thought it was going to be. The site that I bought the paper from has a template you can download for Word and once I did that, it was just a matter of saving the tags I had created in Photoshop as a picture file and then copying the picture into the template in Word. A few adjustments for spacing, and Voila! Hag Tags!
I changed the logo a little – I added “Made in Malone” to the top. I really liked “Made in Malone” and I also thought we would just use the “Zombie Lady Couture” as a subtitle – more people friendly, I think. But I kept the graphic. It was too cute to ditch.
So, here are the finished tags.
And I got to use one of them, too! Leslie the Chamber of Commerce Lady has a little daughter who is the cutest thing – and I gave her the ruffled variegated sweater I made a while ago. It was just about the right size for her, so it worked out well. When I gave her the sweater, I put one of the little hag tags on it – and it looked really cute! And I have one on the “Hobbes Hoodie – Now With Fur!” that I’m donating to Val for the March of Dimes Raffle. So I love the hag tags. Well worth the dollar for the paper.
So – in other news, I have a very weird little anecdote for you today. Remember Rocky, the lesbian chick who is a friend of one of Paul’s buddies? Well, our garbage man came over this morning and was talking to Paul about a bunch of mutual friends they have (one of them just got arrested for being a sexual offender and not registering – and living within 500 feet of a school – lovely). Well, the garbage man was telling Paul about how one of Rocky’s dogs died. She has like 10 dogs and a hundred cats living with her in this upstairs VERY small apartment – imagine THAT house.
But I guess now she only has 9 dogs – because one of them died. Yes, so sad, too bad, the dog died.
The “unusual” part of the story is where she buried the dog – in front of her house in the little green grass area next to the road – past the sidewalk in front of her house. Don’t they have a special name for that area? I think they do – but it’s not “Pet Cemetery”. Yup – that’s where she buried the dog – next to the telephone pole – and she put a big cross there and everything! The garbage man noticed it because he’s also her garbage man and the garbage was sitting on top of the dog’s grave.
I didn’t even think you could do such a thing in the village. I mean, what if they have to tear that area up for water lines or something? ewwwww…..
People are strange, I’m telling ya.
