Happy Kissing Day!

National Kissing Day is an international holiday which originated in the United Kingdom.  It wasn’t until recently that the holiday as been adopted worldwide making July 6th the International Kissing day.  It is believed that many people have forgotten the simple joy and pleasure of kissing (even just kissing for kissing’s sake).  Kissing can be an enjoyable experience!  Let’s tuck away the social formalities and “romantic gestures” for a moment and go give someone a kiss.

We challenge everyone to give a kiss (or at least a big ol’ hug) to a friend and/or loved one this week.

We celebrate kissing day today by featuring a romantic kiss in Venice.


Check out our current featured poster of the week: Weezer. Here is some interesting background information on the band (from their website):

Weezer has been around since 1992, and in its present form since September 2001. Weezer consists of Rivers Cuomo, primary songwriter, lead vocals and guitar, Patrick Wilson, drums, guitar, vocals, and production whiz, Brian Bell, guitar and keyboards and vocals, and Scott Shriner, bass, vocals, and keyboards. Whether on the stage or in the studio its not uncommon to see just about anyone in the band playing just about anything they can get their hands on. Its also not uncommon to see some pretty wacky stuff go down both on stage and on the web. Weezer has sold over 10 million albums and has played thousands of shows to date. Weezer is also known for its pioneering (1994-2000) use of the internet to reach its fanbase, innovative videos and funny and/or quite strange behind the scenes footage, as well as its extremely passionate and devoted fans. They also make a mean cheese sandwich.

Featured Poster of the Week – GAGA

GUESS WHAT? The new Lady Gaga album, Born This Way, is being released on May 23. That is TWO WEEKS away.

Item #9263 Lady Gaga, Born This Way

The world has undoubtedly been taken by storm with Ms. Gaga. She has cut right through societal norms with her outlandish ways and lyrics that give her fans something to relate to.

Let’s face it: She is incredible.

Like her music or not, she is giving people hope all across the world that they are perfect in every imperfection they may have. She stresses unique personalities, being comfortable in your own skin, and being ridiculous whenever you want! She has given the word ‘free’ and entirely new meaning in pop culture.

“You have to be unique and different; and shine in your own way.”
Lady Gaga

You just got pied!

We are writing today to follow up on a post we made earlier about our charity of the month: March of Dimes.  We mentioned in the post that we were going to have several internal events including a Pie in the Face and Bowling party.  Both of the events were a LOT of fun and we wanted to share the pictures with everyone.

Update 4/7/11:

In the heat of all the excitement, Dan, CEO of Frame USA, posted a challenge:  If we could raise $25 dollars, we could pie him in the face.  This resulted in nearly $100 dollars collected and as a result, Dana, the President, and two of the charity coordinators, Julie and Chris, received whipped cream pies as well.  Pictures added to gallery above.
