I would really like that money thing. It would be pretty nice. You spending time with us is all the donation we could want. : ) Aww, you make me blush. :) Raw Garlic makes life wonderful. I have tooth fail thanks to a fail dentist. Like, doped up and still in intense pain fail. Garlic is making the painÂ livableÂ while doped up. I have no clue why it is working, but. yeah. It totally does because it’s wonderful. Sooooooo, I just donated $10. Because…. I got a job!!!! I haven’t signed any papers yet, so it could still all go to hell, but I got verbal confirmation today that I will get the paperwork on Monday and that I will start on the 6th. Yay!!! And it is one I’m actually interested in. That will help people! I’m going to be helping the people who help the people who help the people treat cancer! (I’ll be working on digital pathology software and devices, hence the many derivations.) So PoM, I’d like a gif that includes Dr. Who, chocolate, Arrested Development, or cats. (I’ll donate $5 extra if you have one that has all of those things in one gif; and furthermore, I will bow to your supreme mastery of teh internets and the art of giffery.) Now however, I am off to unfuck! Yay! Congratulations! :D hey hey! That’s fantastic! Congratulations!!Â Your post gives me hope!! Fuck yeah congrats! That’s frickin amazing! Congrats! And such good work too. I love that gif. I wish my cat hugged me. She’s a bit of a self-centered one, that cat; she prefers biting me to hugging me. My Loki-boy will wrap his little fuzzy grey paws around my neck if I try to put him down sometimes. It’s so adorable. He then usually tries to eat my face but for a few moments it’s the most precious thing in the world. My Mara-girl does not do affection as such. This is also one of my favorite gifs. I’m glad you enjoy it too. <3 Awwwww. Loki-boy sounds cute. My girl likes sitting on my lap, but she’s all about her comfort, not mine. She has an oral fixation, so she’ll be sitting on my lap cute as can be and then she’ll just start gnawing away. It doesn’t hurt or anything, she knows better than to bite hard, but it is really annoying and kind of gross. Whenever I get another kitty, I hope I end up with one that hugs. Please hold… @Lurkerina: Alas, I could only name that tune in two gifs: Yay! You are the master of giffery! Tennant and kittens! Squee! DT AND KITTENS! OH GODS. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME. THESE ARE NOT QUESTIONS. THIS IS NOT CAPS. I AM DED. I am wearing a pretty dress and I may have had a very strong drink or two. That is all. That sounds like a pretty good Friday. Woooo! Yay for pretty dresses and strong drinks! I wish I was doing the same. It is unfucking time for me though; drinks and pretty clothes have to wait until tomorrow night. Your dress is fabulous and your drinks are not strong enough. Let us all enjoy the night. Totally random, but hey, open thread – anyone have aÂ recommendationÂ for a good laminator? Or a name I should stay away from? You mean a personal laminator? I’ve used a cold laminator before, and it worked… okay? The plastic didn’t hold up for a month in my classroom. Many times, teacher stores will charge a nominal amount per foot to laminate for you with the good stuff. It might be hard to get it quick right now, with back to school around the corner, but it’s worth a shot. Yes, I need one for basically the same thing – craft and homeschooling projects. Thanks for the heads up, I’ll stay away from the cold process :-D I need to put together charts for not failing at executive functioning around my house (Special Ed teachers, you know what I’m talking about- but for at home.) done up, but I might end up just using ziplocs again. . . I’ve used clear contact paper in a pinch, but it’s incredibly frustrating to get it wrinkle free. Ziplocs are a great idea! For Veruna Your name always makes me think of Veruca Salt The band, not the character Because you rock We would never send you down the squirrel hole. Want to know a not so secret secret? Veruca Salt (the band) is one of my favorites and also one of the reasons I chose this name. :D You also picked my favorite song by them. Yay! For MJ A kindred spirit, A woman who would appreciate the word snarkastic, A lover of life and the great works of Peter Falk, The MJ will abide. For Bryn Badass posts Really totally awesomely cool Yummy smells Non-jackass vegan This is why we love Bryn. Aww! This is wonderful! :) I love this. I really desire to own this whole ensemble. She looks good for having just parachuted into the Olympics… God damn this gif is huge. My apologies to anyone with epilepsy… oh. my. god. That is glorious. I think Hypnotoad has a new rival. Does sticking gifs under the spoiler tag work? If you hit escape when the page loads, gifs should freeze. You just made my night. :) A. Mazing. I demand more shirtless flag bearers for the Olympic Opening Ceremony, please. I also love the fist-pumping delegates marching under the Olympic flag. Now that’s an entrance!!! Keeping with the gif theme, of course! I just love her. She seems to have way more personality than any of our recent first ladies. Me too.Â She seems really down to earth! For real. I think most of her personality comes from the simple fact that she goes out and does stuff. Sans president. She is her own First Lady! or maybe that’s just me projecting… One of the local universities had her speak at a recent graduation ceremony. Wanna know how jealous I was? ALL OF THE JEALOUS. Unicorn drawrings (intentionally misspelled) will be posted tomorrow!!! I’ll be sure to tag all of you generous wonderful folks in your unicorn! For @queSarahSarah: For @slaybelle (you can’t stop me, OK?): Buffy gif is an acceptable ignoring of my wishes! For @blueberries /Brenda: Oh I love this one, thank you :-D For @veruna: Because my love for Persephone is never ending! :D So my neighbors are either fighting or re-enacting the Olympic opening ceremony in their apartment.. It’s making me feel extremelyÂ uncomfortable. For @fooj /jennifuj: Aw, thanks! Â Love it! For @mj: Raylan Givens here. David Beckham at the Olympics. My fucking weekend is AWESOME! Picking one for you was extra super easy. OLYPHANT! I want to do all the things to OLYPHANT. All. The. Things. I was 10 years old when Scream 2 came out and I remember having a huge crush on Olyphant. Which says many things about me…considering his role in that movie….and that I was a 10 year old with crushes on grown ass men. And that I had good taste in celebrity crushes, even at 10 years old! I sometimes feel as though I should change my user name to LittleOrangeOlyphant. But it seems strangely dirty. ….what? For @bryndonovan: Persephoneers!
