A postcard I sent to bobby and Mariah a few years ago that we just found

The content is so indicative that we were new friends (well at least to me) and I also am impressed at how compact I was able to write because I'm not usually one for tiny handwriting! Old mail!

Obama high fives children forever

Last night my friend Peaches described this scene where our President gave 4 kids "perfect awesome high fives" after his speech on gun control, and that he wishes he could watch it over and over and over again...So naturally, my response was "someone should make an animated gif of this." 

FORTUNATELY for me, NYmag was on the same page with their blog post entitled "President Obama Celebrates Start of Gun Control Crusade With Alarming Number of High Fives" and as much as I thought it definitely seemed like something that should exist on the internet, I really didn't want to have to be the one to take the time to do it.

But what of cats? YOLONT?

My old friend Vince showed this to my brother and I and I'm still kind of dying inside from laughing just at what he came up with (and the interspersed hater attitude paired with a ridiculously amazing metaphor) "What of cats? Every body know cats have nine times they are living, yeah?...YOLONT?...'Yeah, hey I'm going to eat this crazy crazy crazy old expiring cat food!' 'Aw, DO IT, do it little kitten! Remember, YOLONT!'"

Election Day



If you're in STL also and you haven't voted yet, you can check out the non-partisan local and state election stuff at beyondnovember.org to see who you would like to vote for and which measures you would like to support since there's not that much info on the ballot.

OMFG The Google Doodle is so EFFING awesome right now



The Huffington Post has a great description of why Google decided to pay tribute to the 107th anniversary of when the Little Nemo comic strip first ran in print, and the interactive animated elements and apt title "Little Nemo in Google Land" are SO GOOD! If you can't try it out today, watch the video above and see how it went!

Found the cutest baby kitten tonight

I was cleaning my house this evening and didn't have plans to go out but my friend Sam stopped by after work to borrow some DVDs because he wanted to stay in while he's feeling under the weather, and then my friend Naomi stopped by to say hi because she was having dinner nearby and Jeremy (her newlywed hubby, hooray!) had to run off to attend to some family "make sure grandma's ok I'll meet you at home" kind of thing so eventually she had to also, but by this time I was a little antsy so I went to grab a drink with friends on S. Grand and hung out and watched a show for a bit and then my friend Cal had this cute baby kitty in his arms and was trying to figure out a place to keep it safe for the night or find it a good home so I swept in and insisted it stay with me for the night, make sure that either my friend Sam would like it (he's been talking about getting a cat lately and I know he'll take good care of whatever lucky cat gets into his attention!) or if I would have to bring it to our friend who is a humane society veterinarian and would know all the good local shelters to take it to or someone who would give him/her a forever home, but this kitten was just TOO sweet to leave out by a dumpster so I drove it back in my coat and gave it a little food that I put some water into and microwaved and cooled down with more water (you never know how hydrated or dehydrated it could be, but better to get it in while it's hungry!) and water and a little shoebox/disposable lasagna pan of litter and lock it in the bathroom for the night so my cats don't hiss at it all night, and so far my cats are in bed with me and all is well.

Poor thing, I gave it a quick bath because I was a little worried I brought fleas or something into my house (my cats will undoubtedly need a vet visit either way since they haven't seen another cat or dog in years) but it turned out ok after a few loud meows and some towel bed making on the bathroom floor; even though I'm losing sleep I'm kind of stoked that it didn't really hiss back at my cats (territory, alpha, natural, etc) and it is not meowing at the bathroom door or anything crazy, it was just glad to be fed and sheltered for the night, you can just tell bc it kept trying to run for any doors or potential for human occupancy and it just wanted to milk all its worth of cuteness just so it could have pity dinner.

It fell asleep in my lap so many times I almost felt like taking it to snuggle in bed with me, but then again, I didn't wanna be TOO MUCH of a sucker and kittens are so tiny sometimes they get lost/hidden in the tiny room that you integrate them into your home, and I really did not want to piss off my own cats enough to pee on anything because I just did a ton of laundry, and who needs that???

He has a HEART marking on his nose and little furry balls!!!!! If I didn't already have two cats and think that three cats is WAY TOO MANY CATS for one small household, this cat already maybe stole at least a small part of my heart so I really want it to have a good life now. Update soon, but I was way too excited not to share these totes adorbs pictures of it being sleepy and snuggling.

Like we needed any more help procrastinating...



It's been a while since I've posted anything cat related (mostly due to the overwhelming amount of cat related content on the internet since I've been posting on this blog–yes, even cat people get sick of looking at other people's cats after a while) but this one note microsite my friend Jeff posted about last week is worth a few clicks worth of laughs...now go PROCATINATE

Whale smile

The other day I heard on KZQZ 1430 AM's top of the hour news snippet that one the storms that hurricane Issac produced beached a couple of pilot whales who were being kept cool and hydrated by attendants and fed a steady diet of fish smoothies through a feeding tube until they could relocate them into the ocean, and the way they worded it sounded like they were just out having a spa day at the beach, even though it must've been traumatic (and pricey, for the humans involved at least) for all. I took a mental note to later look up what Pilot Whales looked like and it turns out they are kind of somewhere between a porpoise and a sperm whale and a little cartoon cutie, just look at this pic someone snapped of a Pilot whale looking like it is smiling! Too cute not to share, and it totally makes me want to draw a cartoon of the beached whales on a spa day, drinking smoothies from giant straws.

OF COURSE someone in St Louis invented this...

St Louisans love to party. Being in a brewery town, they also love to drink. So of course when someone invents a device that eases your trouble and mess in making JELLO SHOTS, our local news featurette "Show Me St Louis" does a story on it.* Too funny not to post. How could I not be curious at a link that says "introducing the jellinator"? I've never made jello shots before, but man do I like it when someone brings them around, so I kinda wish they would give me a free one so I could blog about trying their recipes or it being a hit at parties or something. It looks like our local weekly rag's food and drink blog already got a test drive, but hey, a girl can dream.


Honestly, I'm a little surprised that the idea of having a reason to make and take jello shots actually sounds good to me right now. Only because over labor day weekend, we (20+girls in a cabin in the woods of Lake Taneycomo near Branson, MO) had about a million of them at my friend Claire's bachelorette party weekend, including some gross mistake tequila ones, some frozen ones that were not quick to eat, and some half-melted ones we threw out, all of which should have turned us all off of them for a WHILE. I'll take this opportunity to post a very awkward-faced photo of me taking a "shot" out of a jello shot syringe, administered by the cocktail waitress at the dueling pianos bar we went to in Branson, MO. I promise that I didn't plan on making this face when I had my friend take the picture, it just happened, which I find way funnier. It was shocking how nonchalant the girl was about aiming a turkey baster/injector style device in complete strangers' mouths, it was like how I imagine force fed animals must feel at the vet's office...totally weird, but I'll let the picture speak for itself. I kind of look like a freaked out baby bird who is contemplating puking up her meal after getting grossed out by mama bird trying to feed me regurgitated food, and I'm like "waaaiiiittamminnute....so you're telling me that this is the only way I can get food until I can learn to fly? oookayyyy, I guesssss.....WAIT WAIT I WASN'T READY FOR THAT! UCK WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!"



*I was trying to find this feature story on a day trip destination after liking their fb page (that I bought a living social coupon for a while back, but have yet to set aside a weekend to redeem) to see what it's like before planning to go on a double date there before it gets too cold, and I couldn't resist clicking on this story and sharing it with the internet.

Ksteg sent me this video that reminded her of me

I love it when I hear from old friends like this. I miss Kristen all of the time! My favorite thing about this video is its cartoon heliated vocals and italo disco lo fi synth beat weirdness, and how in the video they are turning anything with control panels on it into a synthesizer (like the pilot and the scientist ground control looking guy) even though those knobs couldn't possibly match up their functions with the sequences of sounds they are producing...NERD alert! That girl does have a rockin zip up flight suit and bad ass bangs though!

YES! I'M GOING TO AN AWESOME SHOW TONIGHT

It's going to be so fun. Juiceboxxx hasn't been back to STL since he got so wild that he broke stuff during his performance at the Lemp (but I didn't see him perform til months later when I went to SXSW 2008 and hung with him at a show he played with my friends in Extreme Animals...I blogged about it a while ago...to this day I get this one Juiceboxxx song stuck in my head ALL THE TIME) and JEFF the brotherhood I haven't seen since they played at Open Lot (which hasn't hosted music shows in a few years at least) but I went to RISD precollege with one of those two brothers (Jamin, everyone thought he was cute) and both acts put on a wild awesome energetic feed off the crowd type show and if you had any brainz you would NOT miss this show. There is something seriously for everyone, if you're not into one of the bands, you'll be into another of the three. I PROMISE. It's $12 (for 21+, $15 for under 21) doors are at 8 and show starts at 9. Local lovebirds Sleepy Kitty are slated to open the show, I hope they made a poster for this one because I WILL be buying it if so. I'M SO EXCITED.
