I had plans to blog all about the big elephant in the room, ie. my 30th birthday, but that is just going to have to wait until next week. Why? Well, there are so many different things that I have been amused by today that I just had to share some of them with you. I haven’t done a completely random blog post in a while, and it is Friday after all, so I figured why not.
1) The most valuable thing i learned in the 7th grade was to suck it up and just ford the darned river already. Please please please watch this video. If you are younger then 25 years old you probably have no idea why I find this so amusing. But, if you spent middle school typing class doing everything you could (ie, fording rivers and trying not to die of dysentery) to avoid actually learning how to type, then you will hopefully find this equally as fantastic as I do.
2) Kitty Calisthenics. For months now, I have been trying to figure out how to get Oliver to exercise. The cat seriously needs to loose some weight. Granted, he’s a little challenged in the “has the required number of workable legs” department, but still we needed to figure something out. Well, today, he seems to have solved that problem all on his own. Oliver has always shunned traditional cat toys. Give him a furry mouse, he ignores it. Sprinkle some catnip in front of him, and he turns up his nose. Anything with a bell, he gets annoyed by. But apparently if you ignore him long enough he will pull a dirty, balled up paper napkin out of the garbage and will find endless amounts of amusement flinging it around the kitchen. He did this for a full 25 minutes tonight. He actually picks it up in his mouth, flings it as far across the kitchen as he can, chases after it, then uses his hockey stick leg to kick it back, then starts the whole process over again. He’s a one cat soccer team, and he’s so tuckered out at the moment he’s passed out in the middle of the kitchen floor.
3) “And if you’re going to end your cover letter with ‘best wishes’ instead of ‘sincerely,’ I don’t care how experienced you are—you won’t be working for me.”
In honor of my newly employed status please take a moment to read through The Onion’s views on unemployment. I’d laugh a lot more if it wasn’t for the fact that most of what they’re making fun of is incredibly accurate. Oh, how I love The Onion.
