I know I sometimes post a lot of crap on this blog and instruct you to listen/read/watch, but for the love of all that’s holy, please watch this video.
If you’re one of the 12 million people who have already seen it, good job. I, however, was not one of the 12 million until last week. I was one of the unlucky ones.
Ever leave the house and realize you’ve got cat hair all over you? Cat hair is a menace. It’s everywhere.
Stop it at the source:
Somehow I don’t think fluffy boy Harris would allow this.

I’m not even going to apologize for this. If you’ve never watched a single video I’ve ever posted, I urge you to watch this one because I couldn’t stop laughing.
It’s about a cat burglar, and he’s stolen so many things from the neighbors (more than 600 items) that he was featured on Animal Planet.
If there’s an ad and you can’t skip over it, don’t click away. This video is worth the wait!
Generally I hate New Year’s resolutions. I hate them because everyone gets all bright-eyed and hopeful, but we realists know they’ll all fail within two weeks. It makes me anxious waiting for people to fail. It’s like when you wake up a half hour before your alarm goes off, and you get so anxious you can’t get back to sleep then you spend the whole day tired and angry.
Why not just make resolutions all year round? That way you won’t look dumb when you fail and I remember that you failed.
That being said, I now have a resolution, and if I fail you can ridicule me. Two years ago I saw Hannah Montana: The Movie and fell in love with it. There is a dance sequence called “Hoedown Throwdown” that is captivating so I’ve decided I’m going to learn to do it because it would be beyond cool.
Below I’ll post both the song link as well as Miley Cyrus’ instructional video. Please be aware that you need to watch at least 50 seconds to get to the dance, and if you want to see how cool it looks once you really get into it then you need to watch the entire thing. The whole place gets involved!
I’m not the only one to learn this. Twenty million people have viewed the instructional video. That’s almost half as many people as the amount of Americans who don’t have health insurance. Serious stuff.
Wish me happy popping and locking!
I don’t remember what life was like before the Internet. We’ve had a computer since I was about 7, and Internet not long after.
I’ve always wondered what it must be like for people who were adults when the Internet came around, and now I know:
You know what else I don’t remember? Life before TV remote controls. Some Brits (who are roughly my age) in my office were talking about how they remember the days when they had to get up and switch the TV manually.
I had a really confused face, because I thought this stopped happening in like 1965. This was something I only saw in black and white TV shows. Then I remembered I’d heard Brits didn’t get more than four TV channels* until around the early to mid 90s, and they confirmed this was true. Yes, you read me right. Four channels. Mid 90s. Man I had a giggle fit.
Don’t worry – they have channels now! (and remotes)
* Adrian said: “Could you put in there that although we only had 4 channels they were packed full of quality programs (programmes), like Only Fools and Horses, Monty Python, Blackadder, Keeping Up Appearances, Red Dwarf, etc. They’ve stood the test of time.”
Boys in high school say, “If you really loved me you’d have sex with me.” Married women longing for a cat say, “If you really loved me I’d be unwrapping a present like this for Christmas.”
In case you are dead inside and the site of a cute kitty makes you feel even colder, blame Canada. Seriously, blame Canada – this link was shown to me by a true Canadian, Matt Polacko.
Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’m uneducated about the world of penguins and everyone else is up to date with them and their feeding practices.
When I saw this on David Attenborough’s Life documentary last night I was shocked:
Yep, that’s a mother penguin throwing up into her child’s mouth.
Naturally I immediately thought of “Two Girls, One Cup.” If you haven’t seen this, I’d like to say you aren’t missing out on an important piece of world culture, but unfortunately you probably are. Everyone’s seen it and screamed at it.
This is old, but does it ever stop being funny?

I hope you watched at least 12 seconds in, to where the cat’s mom started talking.
At the risk of losing readers to my blog, I had to post this because:
a) I’ve done this.
b) More than once.
c) I’m a crazy cat lady in training? (Although, the New York Times makes a good case for cat ladies to be proud rather than ashamed.)
d) Because of point c, this filled me with laughter and then a deep longing for a baby cat of my own. It symbolizes all that I love about cats, especially mese cats. Endless entertainment and love.
e) I have a Siamese back home, and she looks and acts like this cat.
If you are thinking “Burmese, Siamese, they’re all the same, ” that’s cat racism! Shame on you.
