Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

Well, the most recent round of Pen Pal Project cards went out earlier this week and I am already getting feedback from y'all in emails, texts, and even a post from the lovely and lively Cora who writes Love Letters From Cora.  (She rocks, check her out.)


It thrills me to no end that I filled your boxes with NC-17 goodness and you liked it.  Dirty monkeys.

One thing, though . . . did any of you notice the stamp?  I am offering a prize to the first person (who isn't H since she pointed it out to me) to identify what's missing from the "Legends of Hollywood" Bette Davis stamp I used.  In case you've already tossed the envelope (that sounds dirty), or in case you haven't yet joined my mailing list, here's the stamp:

First one to comment here and accurately identify what's missing gets a kick-ass prize.  I have no idea what that is yet, but it'll be from me so it will be kick-ass.  Duh.

I got mine yesterday! I wondered where her smoke went.

I guess mine is somewhere over the ocean.

You sent it special delivery right? Or by courier pigeon?

Gwen said...

mo.: I sent yours via drug mule.

Stacie's Madness said...

a cigarette. :)

got mine and it was SOOOO perfect...I will blog about it once it's scanned...

just perfect.

THANK YOU. So glad I signed up for your pen pal love.

I didn't get a letter. :( and how come they edited out her cigarette? And how come I didn't get a letter?

Chemgeek said...

And not just a cigarette, but the long black thing that one can use to smoke a cigarette. That's missing too. I don't know what it's called, but it made smoking so much more elegant.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. There's nothing missing. Bette's just about to whip out the Jedi mind trick on you all.

My grandmother's name was Betty Davis. When I hear the song "Bette Davis Eyes", I always think of her and not the actor.

Is it a penis?

Soda and Candy said...

Well, lots of people have already said it but I guarantee ol' B-Dave would not just be smoking a plain little dog-end but would have it in a nice long black cigarette holder.

I like that they left her eyes a little lazy though.

Dr Zibbs said...

Duffle bags under her eyes.

Sass said...

The sweat of a thousand Mexican immigrant children?

No?

Hmm...

And by the way...Could my card have been MORE fabulous?!?!?!?

Gwen said...

Sass: In response to both of your questions: No.

MelO said...

A big fat joint???

I feel like a schmuck for not keeping up with your blog enough to sign up for this letter :( waaaah. Poor me.

*pouting*

(meanwhile, my mother always warned me against calling myself a schmuck because apparently it means penis in some cultures. LOL... perfect.)

Cora said...

Oooh, thank you for the shout out, Gwen! :-)

I definitely think her cigarette is missing, but it looks like everyone else has already taken that answer, soooo I'm going to say... a condom? Yes?

H said...

A monkey??



Oh wait, I already know the answer.

Good one Gwen...way to keep me guessing...eye bee smart 1 day.

XOXO,

A 2! It says 41. My Bette Davis stamps say 42.

They obviously Photoshopped out the flaming red handprint welt on her left cheek, courtesy of the Classic Joan Crawford Bitchslap.

MelO said...

LMAO @ katrocket!!!!!!!! ohmygawd. perfectly awesome.

SkylersDad said...

Her soul?

golublog said...

aww cigarette Im late.

words words words said...

There's nothing missing, she's just snapping her fingers and saying "Oh no she di'int!" from the lost classic Tyler Perry's All About Eve.

Literary Nut said...

Woot! I got my card today! How perfect it was!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Scope said...

I'm going with the Jedi Mind trick: "These are not the bills you are looking for. These bills have been paid. Move along."

Doc said...

The cigarette! What classic Hollywood star would appear in a photo without a cigarette?

Cowguy said...

Marta Run wants to lick my sneakers. Shhhh


Bette? Reefer.

Renaissance Woman said...

I got mine yesterday! Thanks you so much...love, love, love getting something in the mail. It's missing a cigarette and smoke...but wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't asked about it. I clearly wouldn't make a good witness.

zelzee said...

All I know is she starred in some movies that scared the hell out of me.........her and Joan Crawford gave me nightmares.....

"Whatever Happened to Baby Jane"....creepy

Chaka said...

I figured it out on my own, but I'm embarrased to even comment after having everone else point it out. I was recently at a party with my wife and they asked what movie star you would date if you could. I played it safe and said Bette Davis so I wouldn't be in the dog house like I would if I said Angelina Jolie.

Mermanda said...

Gwen, I loved my card... but I think you forgot to enclose the money. Oops!

Suze said...

Thank you so much for the "test results". You're a funny girl.

I think she's missing the head of the animal whose skin she is wearing.
