  1. Here's one:

    Tagging a book, bookmark, unlined journal, lined journal, homemade art journal, or notebook with a color copy of your sketchbook page on the cover a "zine." Not a zine.

    Mood: ready to write a zine about what is not a zine.

  2. Mustache soap on a stick making it to the front page of Etsy.

    Mood: Frothing at the mouth.

  3. haha, AJ, ROTFL about the mood...
