As I wrote in a previous post, we recently held auditions to find the perfect actor for our new character series, Awkward Arnold. There were some truly amazing performances by a lot of really talented turtles. Make sure you check out that link to see the HUGE turnout we had on that crazy day!
Meanwhile, the team has spent a lot of time poring over the tapes and discussing the future of this fantastic role. Finally, we’ve narrowed the search down to three deserving turtles. Now, you get to tell us what you think by casting your vote for your fave!
To give you a little more info about the role, Awkward Arnold is a sweet turtle who often finds himself in uncomfortable situations we can all relate to. But it’s his over-the-top reaction that is just a laugh and a half! The series is a comedy, for sure, but with a soft, sympathetic side. More >
CONTEST HAS NOW ENDED (10/23)
Halloween is already in full swing around here! Well, as much as it can be before we get to the highlight of the holiday, trick-or-treating. Seeing all of those adorably costumed kids parading down the street and hauling bags of candy door-to-door might makes me grin like a jack-o-lantern.
We want to help make this Halloween the best for you and all the costumed characters that’ll be ringing your bell. So, I’m psyched to announce that we’ll be giving away an amazing array of candy to 5 lucky winners!
The MyFunCards™ Halloween Trick-or-Treat Trivia Contest begins this Monday, October 18 and ends October 22. Each day I’ll post a Halloween trivia question and the first person to post the correct answer will win for the day. Timing is as important as accuracy! I’ll be posting the questions at a random time each day. So, you should keep checking back at the PostScripts homepage and also keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for the heads-up! More >
Hey MyFunCards Friends,
Just a note to let you know that MyFunCards will be undergoing some maintenance tonight that will leave our site unavailable to you from 11pm to 2am (EST). We’re just working to speed up and improve your experience.
Also, if you have any cards scheduled during this time to be sent using our calendar feature, don’t worry. They’ll be sent as soon as the upgrade is complete!
We apologize for any inconvenience and we thank you for your patience!
Headquarters was like a zoo all morning today… bustling with lots of great activity! Last week, we advertised an open casting call in the fictional character trades, asking turtles to try out for the role of our new character series, “Awkward Arnold.” The turnout was really incredible!
The hallways were overrun with talented turtle actors – practicing their line, perfecting their gestures, nailing their stance. Of course, turtles are notoriously slow-moving. So, some of the more hustle-and-bustle types in the office got a little frustrated having to take the day at a more leisurely pace.
Some of our other character actors even took a vested interest in who their new colleague’s likely to be. Jay’s actually created an office pool and is taking wagers on who’ll land the gig. More >
Friends, it feels like forever since I’ve had a chance to reach out! I’m so sorry to have been out of touch. I wish I could say it was just a matter of taking a random vacation. Instead, family obligations kept me busy and out of town all last week.
Generally, I’m a huge fan of traveling. I’m known for some of the crazy road trips I’ve gone on, and for the longest time I even loved to fly. Now, it just isn’t as much fun as it used to be.
When I was a kid, I remember being really psyched to fly with my mom to visit family. I especially loved earning those crappy little plastic wings and pinning them to my little outfit. Even into college I remember loving being on the go, the anticipation that the flight might be overbooked so I could get out of Monday classes and earn a free flight voucher by giving up my seat.
Now flying is far from fun. It’s not just that you have to pretty much undress and unpack just to get through security. Not that I deny it’s (mostly) necessary. Our Homeland Security is (mostly) doing what needs to be done to keep us safe. I’m just saying that safety isn’t often much fun. More >
