Cat Shiz for Today
And while we're here, let's check out a video of two cats doing some plain old meowing. It's cute. They totally dig each other.
And finally, someone twist on the same vid, it's clever:
Ok, I hope these blew some of the doom and gloom out of your room. You're welcome.

An Open Letter to the Terrified, Balding Dudes o' the Land,
I watch a lot of televised sports without the benefit of DVR, so I endure endless commercials aimed at terrified balding dudes. Such as yourselves. I paid particularly close attention to the Bosley spots last night, and I'd like us to go over this new hair business together, shall we?
Logically speaking, if reversing baldness was possible, then the promise of hair re-growth certainly wouldn't be described as a "Hair Replacement System." Also, if hair replacement systems are so awesome, why are the commercials so vague and entirely devoid of details save for Before and After shots?
I'll tell you why:
Because whatever the heck it it's all about, it's going to be terrible. For you, for me, for everyone.
Look. A decent broad doesn't give a fat crap that you're balding because she's got bigger things to worry about, like whether or not you're a good person, or that you're employed. Or the fact that there's a Hair Replacement System on the market but no cure for cancer of the lady bits, PMS, or an easier way to grow another human being in / shoot one out of her body. Sure, nobody likes getting or appearing older, but it's a fact of life. So, you're going bald. Imagine if you were a baldish/balding/bald woman? You can't imagine it because you don't have to.
The simple truth is, Terrified Balding Dudes, your hair loss is the least of your problems, and I don't even know you.
So, save your money and dignity and just say no Bosley. Shave what you've got high, tight, and proud, boys!
Love you mean it call me,

Larry David and the Bluetooth Talker
See, the thing is, I think I was way more tolerant about when I was doing my Qi Gong regularly, but these daysl this type of crap, this public cellphone conversation junk? It's completely pushing me over the edge. I, like Larry, don't tolerate it well. Instead of talking to an imaginary friend, I instead repeat out loud exactly what the offensive person says on their half of the call. It's good.
1)Mom's recent eyeball surgery---they did something to the cornea, the doctor says recovery should take about 3 weeks
2) The brickwork that he and the boyfriend are replacing around the fireplace--it looks amazing, but there is an issue with how long the job is taking
3) The grey pinstripe suit that needs to be picked up by his assistant from Today's Man--was it picked up yet? It's been hemmed and it's ready...
but I guarantee you he was the only one who was bewildered. F that guy. Stupid jerk.

Two Weeks Until Mortified NYC: Get Your Teen Angst On
Thursday, July 16, 2009 ~ 7:00 pm
at Le Poisson Rouge, New York, NY
Doors open at 6:30 PM, show begins at 7:00 PM.
This edition of Mortifed NYC features mortifying teen crap from
Eliot Glazer, Raquel D'Apice, Sabrina DeJesus, Mary Beth Menna, Carrie Seim and more!
Come share the shame.
Mortified: Real Words. Real People. Real Pathetic.
Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek and celebrated by the likes of This American Life, The Today Show, The Onion AV Club, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, Daily Candy, and more, Mortified is a comic excavation of teen angst artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, home movies, stories, and more) as shared by their original authors before total strangers. As the largest and longest running project of its kind, our grassroots comedy collective has spent years sifting through hundreds of otherwise forgotten notebooks on a mission to celebrate the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.---all in the noble pursuit of self-degradation--so come share the shame! Mortified is produced in NYC by Anne Altman and Julia Wright.
