Catalog Living

I stumbled upon this cute site that chronicles the lives of imaginary characters Gary and Elaine (and their kids) who live in our catalogs. Check out the site, if you haven't already.

Here are some of the captioned catalogs

Elaine so wanted to lounge outside, but when she saw a romantic moment between the two soda bottles, she left them in peace.

For heaven’s sake Gary, the tulips just naturally bend like that. They’re not “trying to steal the pie.”

Good news, Gary. Another couple has declined our New Year’s Eve invitation because our living room makes them seasick.

Nathan, for the last time, your shark robe hood does NOT have “shark breath.” Put it back on.

Gary and Elaine still aren’t sure where the kids’ slow progress in learning animal names is coming from.

While Elaine wondered where all the apples had disappeared to, Gary thought he had a good idea.

Elaine! The owl had an accident.

The kids have been eating a lot fewer cookies ever since Gary started making decapitated reindeer noises every time they open the jar.

In a final attempt to get the lilies to stand up straight in the vase, Elaine hung a picture and hoped they would get the idea.

Hey girlfriend,
I saw you on the Friends Find Friday Hop so am dropping by to see what great post you had today.
Now that catalog has some very creative people with a great sense of humor writing for it.
