I also saw that time you kicked a dog. And I’m telling.

Years ago, I discovered Joyas Jewelry. I can’t remember how I discovered it, which is a shame because I’d like to have someone to thank. I am in love with this site.

And it’s not the jewelry. Don’t get me wrong – there’s a lot of beautiful jewelry there. But her descriptions are wonderful.

Here’s a sample description, for a necklace called “Bond, Jane Bond”:

I said shaken, not stirred bitch.

That’s the whole description.

Another example, for a necklace called “Canadian Excitement”:

I get really excited to learn about talented Canadian actors…my newest favourite is Michael Cera. He’s the reason I started watching Arrested Development. Although since starting to watch it I’ve redeveloped a crush on Jason Bateman – the original crush was from Teen Wolf Too and the Hogan Family.

Do you see how I have no choice but to love her? Not only does she love Jason Bateman, but she spells favorite with a U. Ahh, Canadians.

I’m trying to use the word “awesome” less. Some alternatives I’m trying out: magnificent, wonderful, lovely, glorious and transcendent.

I believe my over-use of awesome started when I netflixed all the seasons of How I Met Your Mother. I should be angry at Neil Patrick Harris. But, let’s be serious. Is that even possible?

When I went shopping last weekend, I bought a dandelion cardigan. I’m theme dressing. And the theme is “Weeds and Blogging.” I should just go ahead and buy forty cats and start chasing the neighborhood kids away with a broom.

***

I have a long-standing obsession with dandelions, which you may have already guessed. (They’re the only flower you can wish on. Wishes, people!) I’ve been thinking about getting a dandelion tattoo for years. I just don’t have any room in my budget for body art. Time to start a savings account I guess.

One of the tools this blogging site gives me is the power to see my referrals, which is where you blog-clickers all come from. Since nobody ever links to my site, the referrals are usually from facebook. But any time I link to other blogs, their blog posts a trackback to my site, so I sometimes get a sort of self-referral from another site.

One such site is Nerdist.com, which, you’ll recall, is Chris Hardwick’s site. I have this sort of blind hope that it’s actually Chris who clicked on the trackback and saw my blog. And if so, I have this to say to you, Chris:

I’m sorry I called you the poor man’s Joel McHale. I was just trying to be funny. Please don’t be mad at me. And also, would you sign my underwear?

Speaking of Nerdist, and vain attempts to get Chris Hardwick to click on my trackback (again), you should go watch this video of wall animation. It’s animated graffiti, and it’s transcendent.

***

Since wordpress shows me referrals, but I don’t actually get referrals, what I’m actually seeing a lot of the time is whatever site someone happened to be on before they came to my site.

But don’t let that stop you from visiting those sex sites before you read my blog.

Don’t worry, I can’t see who you are. But I have some guesses.

By the way, I know I called dandelions weeds up there. But don’t you call them that. It’s okay when I do it, because dandelions are like family to me. You can insult your own family. Right, Mom and Dad?

Okay, NOW you can have your random post.

So, speaking of kitties (see previous post), I saw a kitty get hit by a car on my way to work. It was very upsetting, and the cat ended up in front of my car, so I slammed on my breaks, expecting to have to get out and take the cat home to nurse it back to health. Also, expecting to be rear-ended, because I suh-lammed on my brakes.

But the kitty just gets up and runs to the sidewalk and is looking all “What the fuck, dude?!” (It was a guy in a giant truck who didn’t even slow down when he hit the cat. Bastard. I’m adding this to my list of things that keep you out of heaven.)

So anyway, after this and my own cat getting sick,  I’m wondering: Am I carrying around a bubble of kitty peril wherever I go? Is there a danger zone around me that only affects cats?

Keep me away from your pets, people. I’ve angered the cat-god Bastet and she is wreaking some major havoc.

How awesome was Futurama last night?!*  Love that show. Yay! It’s back!

Um, if you guys still aren’t watching So You Think You Can Dance, you are missing out, man. Also, can’t you accept advice from anyone? I’m only trying to help you.

Anyway, here’s another video. Watch it. If you dare….

It’s not scary or anything. I just felt like saying “If you dare…”

But if masks creep you out, um, it might be a little scary.

Another thing I like to say for no reason: Any time I say “You’ll see,” I add, “You’ll aaaallll see.” And point at everyone in the room. It’s a great way to take a normal conversation and turn it into an awkward pause.

So, I believe I mentioned my love of dating shows previously. One of my favorites was Singled Out on MTV. This was back when MTV actually had good stuff on, known as The Daria Epoch. In my opinion dating shows should always be treated as throw-aways, single servings that don’t last an entire season (*ahem* The Bachelor *cough cough*).

Anyway, in watching Singled Out, I developed a major crush on Chris Hardwick, who you may know as the poor man’s Joel McHale. So you can imagine my delight to discover he has a website now, that is specifically for the nerdy set. And they do podcasts. Including one with Adam Savage (of Mythbusters), one with Alison Brie (of Community), and one with the one, the only, the future signer of my underwear, Craig Ferguson. It’s two hours long and awesome, and you can stream it.

Also, there’s language, so if you share an office, maybe keep the volume low.

Hmm, what else? Oh! Did you guys see Toy Story 3? Did you cry? Yeah, me too.

Okay, that’ll do it for me. I’m setting a goal of actually reaching my original goal of 3 posts a week next week. Wish me luck!

*Answer: Very.
