Long Live the Monarchy!

Just kidding, of course. I'm totally against the idea of a monarchy. In theory. 










You guys....I am who I am.

A Mother's Day Rant

Yesterday morning, I did my weekly grocery run. 

yes, basic necessity shopping for 10:30 am on a Sunday.

It was business as usual. Except this slightly odd exchange on the way out:










Kind of weird, right? I figured one of two things was happening. 

1. He assumed every adult female human was a mother. This is bad for many reasons, akin to asking a woman when her baby is due. Just...no. 

or

2. Wishing someone a "Happy Mother's Day" has now become "celebrating the idea of motherhood so generally that it's normal to do to a total stranger" in which case, my response was perfectly appropriate.  

But seriously, can we please stop doing this with holidays?  See war on christmas. Here's a suggestion: how about we only wish people a happy fill-in-the-blank if we know they celebrate said holiday? Or else society is going to devolve into this:

I hope Boyfriend remembered to buy me a present for grandparents' day this year.

Big Cat, Big Dreams

You all know Boyfriend has two kitties and one is, uh, large. Possibly part ocelot. So this conversation ensued: 



And of course, we both starting imaging Archer in that famous Miley Cyrus video. Enjoy: 



But it also led me to answer the question "what's your dream job" and "what would you do if you had a million dollars? And the answer is: reshoot famous music videos with cats. Cats instead of Britney Spears in Oops I Did It Again. Cats instead of Christina, Lil kim, Pink, and Mya in Lady Marmalade. Cats instead of the Backstreet Boys in I Want It That Way. 


Guys, this idea is a winner. I feel it in my bones. I also imagine there's a good chance someone already came up with this, so I'm refusing to google it to keep the dream alive. 

Really, I only see one downside here:

Glasses half empty

I know I don't usually draw myself with glasses, but as I may have mentioned, I wear them regularly.  And I recently got a new pair. They're a little bigger and have a purplish tint.


The reaction has gone like this:

Family:


Coworkers:


Boyfriend:







So, Boyfriend's a jerk and my new glasses are great, thanks for asking!

Best Night Ever

As I mentioned awhile ago, I lost power for a few days last month. 



After the plows came and cleared the roads, I went to Boyfriend's for a night to stay warm. 



I made the tough decision to leave Kitty, on account of this happening in the car:

and this happening when she sees Boyfriend's dog:

And yes, I still felt VERY guilty about leaving her.

Anyway, the power came back on and I returned home. And that night, the most magical thing happened. 




Yes, my little furry monster - after weeks of rejecting the bed in favor of a closet shelf - joined me for MAJOR cuddling and purring all night long. 

It was like she squeezed a month worth of cuddles into one night



It was bliss. 



Some people were not as impressed as I was about this development. 




Uh huh. Sure. 

Anyway, #BestNightEver.
