J-Monday 5 of 9

Monday, June 30th, 2014

The J-Monday queue is set! There will be four more awesome J-animals after this, with varying degrees of existence in reality. (The John Dory fish will *not* be one of them. That fish is seriously yikes.) Today’s J: Jacana, of the family Jacanidae (aw yeah, double-J bonus!). [photo credit Factumquintus, via wikipedia]

things I am grateful for today

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

1. sunshine 2. my weird brain 3. the fact that every random picture, gif, and video of a raccoon that circulates on tumblr is apparently now up for grabs as a Guardians of the Galaxy joke (‘this new trailer for GotG looks great!!!11!’) ILU, fandom

In Cupid’s Little Bag of Trix, by shadoedseptmbr Author’s Summary: “Darcy might have a little crush. And possibly a kink.

Monday morning, five minutes out from home, and I heard a little ding from my car. LOW WASHER FLUID. (My car uses all caps, apparently everything is SUPER IMPORTANT when you’re a car.) The warning was accompanied by an orange triangle with an exclamation point in it, along with the aforementioned ding. I figured, hey, […]

horizon snack grahams: a review

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

1. Last time I went to the grocery store, I got some Horizon Snack Grahams (the honey flavor). Because I had a coupon. 2. The coupon was a whole story in and of itself, involving the cashier saying, “Can I just give you 75 cents after we’re all done?” (I felt bad that it was […]

the jackalope spoke truth

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

The jackalope’s unimpressed expression turned out to be an excellent predictor of the day as a whole. On a work-day scale of one to ten (where one is ‘basically a work-cation’ and ten is ‘wtf was that I didn’t even get a bathroom break’), last Friday was a one. Maybe a two. Sadly, that meant […]

J-Monday 4 of 9

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

The JACKALOPE. At first I was doubtful about including an animal that is not so much mythical as ‘made up as a lark to fleece tourists.’ But it turns out the jackalope has a rich history of ridiculousness, actual mythological shout-outs, and a Pixar short film! (At least according to the internet.) Plus, this: “In […]

You Know How I Feel, aka, The Adventures of Bucky and Muffy the Dinosaur, by ifeelbetter “She likes it,” said […]
