I know that I should at some point sit my ass down and write a real blog post, but the fact of the matter is, I’m probably not going to right now. I’m happy, there’s not much going on, and I don’t feel that the world cares enough about my rambling thoughts to write something out of nothing. So, here goes with some randoms of teh interwebs for your viewing pleasure:
First, the Cute
A cat that is also a hedgehog? Sign me the fuck UP! From Nebogirl.
Sugar Bush Squirrel Go. Now.
I don’t know why, but this one was I Can Haz Cheezburger a few weeks ago, and it’s made me giggle at least once a day since then. Apparently I need an injection of Kids In The Hall, stat.

Sixth, Memes I Have Been Saving And Will Now Do

What’s the cheapest pair of shoes you own?: I honestly don’t have many cheap shoes anymore – since I have such pressure issues with my feet, I have determined that I will just suck it up and pay what it takes to have shoes that fit and aren’t uncomfortable. That being said, I did just score a pair of Naturalizer brown sandals (up yours, they’re comfortable) at Marshalls or TJMaxx or something for $25. I ❤ them.
What’s your favorite piece of jewelry, if you own any?: My wedding rings. While I heart my wedding ring, I miss being able to wear my engagement ring with it (I have developed some sort of freaking rash under there that my ring pisses off. I’m lotioning like a fool to get it to go away).
What’s your favorite t-shirt?: My Emily the Strange t-shirt: it says Emily has a mind of her own and shows her dissecting a brain. Now that I think of it, I need to find that t-shit.
If you could wear jeans every day, would you? Pretty much, except during the summer when it’s too warm. I don’t mind a pair of capris or a skirt.
Do you comb your hair every day? Kind of? I mean, I run the brush through it to make sure it’s not tangled before I dry it, but I never touch it again.
