Find Me On:
Holding my breath never worked. I eat a spoonful of sugar. It is gross, and you can practically feel the cavities forming, but it works for me.
This is truly excellent work!
Thanks everyone! It is pretty fucking awesome that he came to his senses.
kitten smash, like hulk smash, but now I can’t stop trying to envision what kittens mash is.
I love eggs, but I do not have the counter space for that contraption.
Unrelated news: MY CAT CAME HOME!!! I spotted him in the trees out sides (where he had escaped). He was obviously wanting to come home, but was also totally freaked out and ran away from me when I approached him initially. Eventually slow movements and patience got me close enough to pet and grab him. He has been more loving than ever since then. I guess a week outside wasn’t as awesome as he had imagined.
These successful recovery stories help a lot. Thanks!
Open a restaurant? There is a serious lack of tacos here.
Sorry, that’s all I got, but I’m sure there is a way. I was lucky that this job pretty much landed in my lap.
Sure! I was asleep before I saw this, thus the delay.
I am a research scientist and got offered a work contract here after meeting a lab leader at a conference where I was presenting my work. It seemed like a fun change from good ol’ southern USA, and overall it has been pretty great. I love the trains! It is so easy to travel, and plane tickets within europe are usually pretty cheap too!
But I have been busy (read: lazy) about learning the language because almost everyone at work speaks English. I am hating that even more than usual now.
I will hopefully have a nice update soon. Luckily he is chipped (as required to bring him here), and my colleagues are very helpful for translating and whatever. He has always pined for the outdoors despite being rather obese and lacking typical survival skills. I like to think he is having fun and will find/have found a human when the fun stops. Anyway, it is late here, and I need to get some sleep. Thank you for the well wishes, monsters!
I’ve been lurking more than posting for awhile now, but I am ready to whine into the internet void. My avatar/cat (hey, fellas!) escaped Saturday night. He has been indoors for the 11+ yrs that I have had him, and I currently live in Germany where I don’t speak the language much at all. Luckily the people here are nice and he is very friendly (and demanding when hungry) so I hope to get him back, but this is distressing. I’ve only gotten one response so far and she wasn’t sure he was the cat from the fliers, but I posted a ton of fliers in that area regardless (~2 km away). So I wait…
My turn! I don’t actually remember the when and where of it, but I do remember waiting for my mom to be in her room getting showered/dressed for work or whatever so I could just talk to her through the door and say something eloquent like “Uh, I think I need you to take me to buy some maxi pads.” I had probably already stolen one of hers to get by (thankfully she wasn’t tampon only).
There was never any serious face to face follow up on the matter. I just got to go to the drug store with her and pick my pads. Good times. It seems really weird now to have things so silently understood, but I guess sex ed and Seventeen magazine were education enough. I somehow never read “Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret?” and these comments make me grateful. I was happy to be one of the last of my friends. It always seemed like a hassle, and I was right.
How has no one mentioned Andy Serkis yet?!
Wow seriously diet coke
No, Leo gets all 12. Kevin gets to watch.
Thank you! It’s a shame Courtney Cox wasn’t there to save the day.
Can someone explain this, please? Googling “balls superbowl” does not seem to be working.
That you didn’t use one of the “ugly” photos for this post just furthers my commitment to loving you, Kelly.
The glice sketch is SO GOOD, but the hilariousness had nothing to do with Bieber. He was essentially a cardboard prop for most of it, but he did giggle a bit and I love when the actors laugh. Regardless, the hilariousness is all about Taran Killam! Even if I had to do some googling to find his name, I’m glad I can follow it now.
1 million upvotes. Best to just dive into the deep end rather than wade into it.
To be fair, I was still happy to be introduced to both movies. Good movie taste is hot, just maybe not in the moment with these.
You win (lose?)
Hmm… I’m cat person, but *spoiler alert* this is not adorable enough to make up for the lack of anything happening.
Maybe I’m still traumatized from the night a guy I had just started dating chose Easy Rider for our video of the night. I had never seen it, but uh, that is not what I was expecting from a new beau situation. Fast forward to another guy who chose Cool Hand Luke. Good movies, yes. Date movies, no.
I don’t know what that was, but I really did not like it.
I wasn’t even finished reading this post when I suddenly heard someone say “Lindsay Lohan” from my TV. Evidently her latest fiascos were a topic VIP segment of the German 15 min news brief that was playing. After that they said something about Demi Moore’s new boy toy. I don’t know what exactly since my German language skills are still laughable after a year here. What I do know is that this VIP news segment is a new thing, whereas before I was always quite impressed with the more real news topics that were shown on this very trashy channel that primarily features pseudo reality shows (no need to understand the language to watch them).
Ramble over, I was just amazed by the timing!
Leaving this comment is evidence of how thankful I am for VG and it’s amazing commenters. You are all THE BEST!
As a currently international monster, this holiday sucks. The internet is DEAD.
