"5 hours is never enough...


especially when you know pretty much everything."

So this was directly inspired by Jon and Kate Plus 8. A show that I love and that my husband and dad are disturbed by. I was watching Maddy, one of the older twins, blabbing on and on and it reminded me of my hilarious chatty niece and myself as a little girl. I remember one day being incredibly impressed that I talked on the phone for 7 hours. (Sick!)

I like your style. I have a telephone threshold of about a half hour.

My personal record was seven hours, too, recorded in 8th while talking to my new (and very first) girlfriend. Without a car, we couldn't go on, like, a real date...

Cute illo, too BTW =)

I like the fact that she's written her name on a small piece of paper and placed it in the top corner of her desk. It's quite charming

Yes, some people, such as my sisters, can never talk enough.

Great illustration, by the way.

7 hours... that's nothing.... one time.... just kidding I've never even come close to 7 hours on the phone. You must have had a neck ache for a year.
Love your stuff Mer!

I am pretty sure that chat gene comes through McKeans (or at least some of them) and I love Jon and Kate plus 8. Why on earth could be disturbing about it? It is hilarious and interesting. I always feel somewhat inspired by Kate and also more normal by Jon.
I love it.
