Pug Owners! We’re almost at the end of June, which means there’s only two more days to get your pics in our photo contest: “Is Your Pug the Funniest?”
Tell your friends, tell your friends-friends, and spread the word over at Pug Village and the Pug Community! There’s just two days left to get your photo entries in — and I don’t want anyone to miss out by a day or two.
Reminder: the winner will be getting a personalized, frame-able drawing of their pug, plus a personalized copy of “The Good, The Bad & The Pugly”. So get your pics in!
A few quick things to note on the Sheldon Wallpapers:
1.) On request, I’ve added 1600 x 1200 to the list of available resolutions. So now, the full list includes…800×600,
…that should cover 99.9% of folks. But if you have a random, Bulgarian-made computer screen with a resolution not seen above — I’ll happily add that resolution to the list!
2.) Also, the dead link for 1920×1200 has been fixed. Sorry about that!
3.) Also, also: I’ve added the wallpapers to the Sheldon Store checkout process. So now, every Sheldon purchase also gets you these wallpapers as thanks! (Just click on “Return to Merchant” when you’re finished with your Paypal checkout).
4.) Also, also, also: you guys are rad. I put these up under a donation system of “any amount” — but “any” in my mind meant “small”. A few of you Europeans were far too giving. Which either means the dollar is trading favorably for you, or you’re entirely too generous. Thanks, in any case!

Lots of readers e-mail me asking for Sheldon wallpapers for their monitors. But because of all the different screen resolutions that are out there, it turns out to be quite a task…and I haven’t had the time to devote to it.
Until now! I’ve had a tiny breathing period between finishin’ up the third Sheldon book and startin’ the next super-secret Sheldon project…so I took the last two days to make some wallpapers in umpteen-thousand resolutions. Here they are, complete with 2007 calendars!
Both are available for a Paypal donation of any amount. Just click on this button to get both:
After donating, clicking the “Return to Merchant” button will take you to the page where you can download the wallpapers. It’s easy-peasy.
If you encounter any problems in the process, just e-mail me using the e-mail address you used with PayPal, and I’ll make it right.
(…and don’t sweat the donation, if it’s not possible. I’m just curious to see how this “tipping-via-Paypal” thing works. If you can’t swing it right now, just e-mail me and I’ll send the wallpapers for free.)
Living in Los Angeles, like living in any large metro area, I occasionally encounter an odd store where you go “…what the heck is that business model??”
Today’s candidate was a store sign that said “DOUGHNUTS & CHINESE FAST FOOD!”
H…how? …wha? Who EVER craves those two things together?
Even weirder: imagine what the standard order is in a place like that:
“Uh, yeah…gimme two jelly-filled, a glazed, six with sprinkles…and, heck, throw some Moo Goo Gai Pan in there.”
[EDIT: I have to post this image sent in by Sheldonista Aaron B. It’s even funnier than the one I saw. Donuts, Chinese Food, and Liquor! It’s, like, the exact three things that I’ve never wanted to eat together…combined into one superstore!
