Originz




You guys! I'm SO fucking into this theory:


The history of the Chihuahua is has been debated for years. There are many different beliefs as to their origin. One such belief is that the Chihuahua is a descendent of the fennec fox, Fennecus Zerda, which was a small desert dwelling animal from Africa. There are some very striking similarities between the two animals. The fennec, unlike other foxes, chooses to live in groups. It is also commonly know that Chihuahuas prefer to have other Chihuahuas as company. Both the fennec fox and the Chihuahua also prefer to chase and eat small insects, rodents, and lizards. The fennec fox was also known to have very poor dental health which is unfortunately another common trait of the Chihuahua.

For the Archives: Misc.

a few exchanges we had last week:
"i want wings."
"so you can fly?"
"no, chicken wings."

"i'm eating fruit snacks."
"what? you're waiting for sex?"

[rummaging in closet]
"i need a good luck charm. do you have any?"
"there are no such things as good luck charms. you're the superstitious one in this family."
"oh, nevermind, i found one. [holds up gold horseshoe necklace] it's a horseshoe. it's gotta be good luck."
"it wasn't good luck for christopher reeves, just ask him..."
"isn't he dead?"
"exactly."
(bolded, me)

Ring-a-ling-ding



dear w&m,


what does your wedding/engagement ring look like? i'm about to get engaged & it's so hard for me to choose!!! you also seem like not-the-average-chick so... where did you find your inspiration? halp!!!


First, howdy! Thanks for the question 
Second, congrats!
Third, what 'chu talking 'bout Willis? 

My engagement/wedding (2-in-1) ring is the platinum Tiffany Etoile band pictured above. Inspiration? Huh?? My lovely R picked it out for me. Your question made me wonder why everything has to be "inspired" these days. Why can't things just be?? Don't worry so much. Just go with the flow and enjoy the moment.
♥♥♥

ps. I really liked it when you called me "not-the-average-chick," it makes me feel very ~*cool*~.
pps. Do women pick out their engagement rings now-a-day? Is that, like, a thing?
ppps. I'm not an authority on weddings (or anything else for that matter... take it with a grain of salt.)

All deckled out!


P. gave a book recommendation the other day and I immediately popped over because girlfriend has never let me down before.

I spied the following scene:


"This Book Is Bound with "Deckle Edge" Paper:


You may have noticed that some of our books are identified as "deckle edge" in the title. Deckle edge books are bound with pages that are made to resemble handmade paper by applying a frayed texture to the edges. Deckle edge is an ornamental feature designed to set certain titles apart from books with machine-cut pages."


Insert Keanu Reeves WOOOAH!!! I'm such a fucking lame-o. The few times in my life that a deckle edge paper bound book showed up in my paws, I'd think, "Boy, oh boy! Check out these pages! I'm so lucky and so special to have received this rare uncut copy from the pressing!"

I'm picturing my special little book riding down the conveyor belt and skillfully eluding the big ominous paper chopper. It'd barely skate by --by the skin of it's bookteeth and land in the box next to all of its circumsized brethren.

Just another reason why the printed word is better than a Kindle.

Stunning.

Self fulfilling prophecies

I keep telling myself this to get me through these long days.

Oops, I did it again

♥ FUCK ♥ For the 4th year in a row, I've blanked on Valentine's. Blergh! At least this year, I didn't make plans with anyone else. My better half sent me flowers to my work on Friday. I thought nothing of it because "just because" is part of his awesome repertoire. As a coworker was bidding farewell late Friday night, she wished me a happy valentine's day. It went something like this:

"What?! When's Valentine's Day?"
"Uhh, Sunday. That's why you got flowers today, dummy."
"Oh, shit! Goddammit! It happened AGAIN."

R also gifted me these adorable Walter Bosse nesting hedgehogs! My request for a real hedgehog a few months ago was adamantly denied. These little buddies are better suited for me anyhow.

In other news, happy new year! I think it's time for me to make some Chinese New Year resolutions. Hahahahaha. Hope you have a good one!

xoxo

CUNTY

I, personally, love the C word and try to apply it liberally, in all contexts.

Nothing like going to bed at 8:30! 
I feel slightly more human today. Yay!
I miss you. I hope you are swell.

magic = tragic



I haven't a clue what's inside, 
but I know I want to lick every page.
And, I'm positive that it's GAH-MAZING;
and that she'll be wildly successful 
at whatever she decides to do.

Srsly. Best. Quote. Ever.

Though, my equation would probably look more like:
magic < tragic

TAXED


Hrmmmph. We're cutting a big ass check to the gov'mint this year. I can barely say this aloud, but... I-I-I'm s-s-swaying t-t-to t-t-the r-r-right A SMIDGE. Just a smidge. Fiscally. 

Here's what really grinds my gears. Why do people with kids pay FEWER taxes when they use up far MORE resources?!? In principle, shouldn't they pay more?

I don't get it! Someone ess'splain to me, please. Is it because they're breeding future tax payers?? We need to adopt some kids or something. Blurgh. Adulthood blows! Complaining about taxes is so. not. cool.

SWEETIE DARLINGS!


FUCK MARILYN. 

THE MORE IMPORTANT QUESTION IS 

ARE YOU PATSY
OR 
AN EDINA?


Eddie: Is champas all right with you Pats?
Patsy: Lovely darling.
Eddie: Should we finish off the beluga or should we have some smoked salmon nibbly things?
Patsy: Oh whatever sweetie.
Eddie: All right, we'll finish off the beluga. 


(I'M A PATSY.)

thanks, kdub, for reminding us what really matters!

-Forgotten names

-Unlisted callers

-Flags at half mast
