baratron again

In lieu of a proper post...

Remember the YouTube video of a hungry cat resorting to increasingly desperate measures to wake its sleeping owner? It has a sequel: Let Me In!. A hungry cat resorts to increasingly desperate measures to get indoors. Linked by micheinnz.

Ridiculously cute video of a rat riding on a cat riding on a dog, linked by jackspryte. Unfortunately this video's sponsored by some sort of cult so stop it after 1 minute & 10 seconds, or risk seeing their horrible advert. There are lots of videos of these animals on YouTube, but this one was the best quality, which is why I'm linking to it despite the cultishness. Apparently his name is Gregory Pike and he lives on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. Mini documentary.

Alt Text: Episode 1. Lore Sjöberg of Wired (and formerly Brunching Shuttlecocks) reviews Link's weapons. Absolutely hilarious for all Zelda fans. Linked by j00j.

AM NOW DEAD OF CUTE! Hare Hare Yukai Dance ... with Pikachu, Plusle & Minun. Linked by maniackatie on Pokecharms.

Ulli's Roy Orbison In Clingfilm Website, linked by mactavish. Stories about Roy Orbison wrapped in clingfilm. All technically work-safe but none brain-safe! I can't work out whether this has been written by a genuine fetishist, or if it's a spoof. Or perhaps some mixture of the two. Roy in Clingfilm at Christmas completely broke my brain.

Blasphemy, linked by epi_lj. Very funny.

The comic book geeks on my list will enjoy Rampant Plagiarism, linked by j00j. (Which modern comic is "Yorick, The Last Man On Earth" based on? Sounds like the kind of thing I'd like to read.)

If everyone were poly, what would people write pop songs about? by hfcougar, linked by wispfox.
aibo, sleepy, cute

for an intelligent person, I can be pretty stupid.

I am an idiot! I thought that I had therapy at 2pm today, so I dragged myself out of bed and phoned my parents to try to arrange a lift, because we're having some sort of severe thunder+rain storm and I didn't think it was safe to cycle. Did I check my diary? Nooo. And it turns out my appointment is *tomorrow*. I'm very tired because I couldn't sleep for half the night because of the noise of the storm, but I couldn't really go back to bed at 1.30pm when I have to work at 4pm.

And then the student I was supposed to be seeing at 4 couldn't make it, so I'm not going to her house until 6.15pm. ARGH ARGH ARGH!
