Two Uglies Make a Cute

Hippo family


Susa Group Family


Two uglies make a cute.  Sometimes.

This phenomenon exists throughout the animal kingdom, including humankind.  The condition can be temporary, as the cute can morph into ugly at any given moment.

I considered posting pictures of family and friends and their offspring to prove the point, but that might be be rude.

Hmmm.  Upon further reflection, sometimes I find the reverse is true....two cutes make an ugly.  I am thinking of the spawn of one particular couple, but I am sure you can come up with your own examples.

Internet Addiction

Think you might be addicted to the internet?   This website poses questions for you to consider.  I KNOW I am addicted to the internet. And I like it that way. LOL.


Picture 1
Yes.

Picture 2
I don't even try to cut back.  FULL THROTTLE.

Picture 3
Sure!

Picture 4
Actually my JOB interferes with my internet activity.

Picture 5
Nope.  Why bother lying.

Picture 6
There are a million things to be depressed about.  Why single out the internet?

Picture 7
I make time for both, plus tv, shopping, eating, drinking, reading, complaining, etc.  I do it all.

Picture 8
This looks and sounds like HELL to me.  PASS.

Picture 9
YAWN.

Picture 10
Christ.  Now I am wondering if I have a problem.  Oh, who cares.

Picture 11
BARF.

Picture 12
BARF BARF BARF.

Well, I have zero interest in curbing my internet usage.  My job has me on the computer all day, and I kind of like it that way (I am bored out of my mind most times at work, so THANK GAWD FOR THE INTERNET.  I have about 10 tabs open at all times while I do my job and simultaneously monitor THE WORLD!). 

I am without a computer this week while on vacation [I'll get back to you and your comments when I return], and my hands are shaking just thinking about that.  I'll live.  But I'll miss it. 

If you need help cutting back, I guess you could contact these folks.  Or just CUT BACK. Christ, does there really have to be an intervention center for this kind of thing?!  Fertheloveofgawd.

Beam Me Up


District_9_by_Elemento11

I'm about to head off into the sunset for a bit, but I'll have some blog posts for your viewing pleasure while I am away. But I'll be back pretty soon to catch up with you people.  YOU PEOPLE.  Ha.

Random note: If you haven't seen District 9, do it. I loved that movie. I think my favorite movies of 2009 were District 9 and Inglourious Basterds and Zombieland

One more random note:  One time I was stuck in an elevator with Quentin Tarantino.  THAT MAN IS ANNOYING AS HELL AND NEEDS A LOT OF ATTENTION. Christ.  But I love his movies.  Sorry for the back-handed compliment, QT.  QT?!?!??!?!?!  BWAHAAAHAHAHA!!!  What hilarious initials!!!!

I _________ Your Outfit!

You know how you go to so many blogs [particularly FASHION blogs] and the comments are like "I love it!" "Perfect!" "Beautiful!" "Amazing!"  "So inspired!" You know, just one gushing generic comment after another, and after one second a while you start to doubt the sincerity of the comments. Well when I saw this post yesterday, I couldn't believe how many people admired this outfit. But, I guess there are different strokes for different folks.

And now it is time for you to give your opinion about this outfit, because YOU GUYS never leave generic comments. You are honest.  You are entertaining.  You keep it real.  What do YOU think of this outfit?
