That's adorable! I love your Alot a lot too!

Tawna Fenske said...

That's one of my all-time favorite Allie Brosh posts. Now I'm dying to know where you got your alot. Did someone make it for you, or can those be purchased somewhere? I totally need one for my office!

Tawna, it was a gift from a client! I'm pretty sure she made it her own sweet self since this Alot is a "Thanks Alot"

However, I totally agree that there need to be Alots for sale!

Dana Elmendorf said...

AH! I love this! It looks just like the little computer image from cartoon grammar lessons. So cute! Lucky girl.

CKHB said...

WANT.

A LOT.

Sarah said...

Alot! I've loved Alot for quite some time! I was so hoping that there were alot of him so we could all get one.

Alas.

felizacasano said...

Your Alot is adorable!! You have a multi-talented client!

Maybe you can set up a play date with Alot's distant cousin - Its O. It's - bane of 5th graders and sloppy writers everywhere.

It frightens me when memes cross over to the real world. It frightens me, Alot.

I love the original ALOT blog post. I tried to share on Facebook, but Facebook thought it was spam. Maybe Twitter will like it better...

AnswerGirl said...

I see a future in licensing and mass production. I would buy one . . .

Charley said...

Nice. I got a Round Tuit once. Usually I don't get a round tuit. Oh, well, not Alot.

Josin L. McQuein said...

But do you love this Alot? Or do you love that Alot more?

steeleweed said...

I can see a whole family:
Thanks Alot
Helped Alot
Care Alot.....
Love it - Alot

Grace/Lu said...

Your Alot is fabulous! Your client could sell those and make a bundle. It reminds me a bit of Totoro (from My Neighbor Totoro by Hayao Miyazaki) - very cute.

I love it!! Alot is one of my favorites. I particularly like that it's a Thanks Alot. I'm inspired.

lexcade said...

The Alot!!! Still my favorite of all of Allie's posts...

Fiona Paul said...

I envy you a lot because of your alot. I think your client could sell a lot of alots on etsy.

I think Allie needs to write a picture book featuring alot. Kids would find alot to be a lot of fun, and booksellers could merch the book next to Jan Carr's GREEDY APOSTROPHE.

SWILUA said...

Maybe Z and Allie could write a picture book with pictures of Z's real "Alots!"

SWILUA said...

ps: you got yourself a super awesome client there.

NotWarriorPrincess said...

SWILUA has spoken! (It means "She Who Is Like Unto Aphrodite" but really, only if Aphrodite has some work done.) SWILUA got Alot of luck. It was made out of the other sock. Full disclosure: the recipe for Alot is quite simple. You need

1 pair dollar-store fuzzy socks
Thread
Clay
Hotglue gun
Sharpie pen
Nerve
Ability to withstand punning

Mix well, et voila.

I love this! Alot...err....a lot.....err....alot.

And thanks for the point toward...err..towards....err...toward...Allie's blog.

Automatic follow. GREAT blog put together by such a great mind.

KD Easley said...

Awww, I want one. :)

Kate Higgins said...

I think I could make a pocket ALOT with all the fuzz from the dryer screen.
Come to think of it, ALOT looks a lots more like an ALOTA (Feminine version)...humm...
but than maybe it's an ITS-IT'S. Anyways I guesses for all intensive purposes I shouldn't go their.
(sigh...it's very hard to right wrong ;) I admire good editors.

Kate said...

Love!

Kathryn Elliott said...

Do Alots eat a lot? How about housebreaking? I'm in the market for a low maintenance pet.

Ali Trotta said...

That is the best thing ever! Love it, and I adore Allie Brosh.

Karyn Good said...

I can not believe I did not know alots existed. Thanks a lot for sharing. Allie Brosh has a new fan.

The only thing more awesome than the Alot are the comments in this thread. Happy New Year, Janet!

Melanie said...

So cute! I checked out the original post, too, and it made me laugh.

Eileen said...

I would TOTALLY buy my own alot if it were available. oooh I want.

SWILUA said...

Not a Warrior Princess!

Of course she'd need plastic surgery. I'm a unicorn.

I love my alot a lot a lot a lot. Even better now that I know J.R. has the other sock half!

it's funny... for reasons beyond comprehension, I didn't expect to see you in this line of comments. which is pretty silly if you think about it.
