Fortunately the DS Lite is getting its price slashed to $99.99 on June 5. But I don't particularly care. I'm just angry about the Mario titles. I mean, why don't they just package Mario titles in red cases from now on? It worked nicely for the New Super Mario Bros. on Wii, didn't it? Let's not get poor twenty-something girls' hopes up and send them crashing down again.

This is Midnight. She's over ten years old and pretty overweight because she literally has no space to exercise. She has belonged to someone I know since she was a kitten, and for awhile she had an entire house to run around in and tons of windows to look out of. Then that person moved in with someone who already had two cats. Those two cats and Midnight apparently didn't get along. The other two cats were favored more and Midnight was jealous and upset. She became a little ornery about everything because nobody seemed to like her anymore. So she was put in the dirty laundry room in the basement, right beside the garage. When I go to that house I always visit her and it destroys me that I can't just whisk her away from that tiny space and give her a proper home. She needs a place where she is the only cat, and I have a little kitty already that she probably wouldn't get along with. I was housesitting at this place while the people were on vacation, and Midnight was the most affectionate cat I've ever seen. The garage was empty so I let her in there to roam around a bit. She had gray clumps of fur on her back where she couldn't reach anymore, so I cut them out and brushed her, which she was fine with for awhile. Her patience for being brushed is sort of thin, but I don't blame her really. She lets you brush her for a bit, then it seems like she remembers how people can stop being nice in an instant and shut you in a dark, cold basement. Midnight is such a pretty cat. She has that look on her face, which is right in the picture, that's saying "Please give me a spot of sunlight on the carpet to sleep in." Her fur constantly has cat litter on it since she basically goes to her litter box then tracks it all back to her bed. I feel so bad for her. I wish I could help. I'm not really asking for someone to come forward and offer to adopt her, although I wouldn't turn you away if you offered, but I guess I'm just asking for a thought or two about the animals that live like this and are neglected every day. And some people might say that Midnight is just a mean cat, but I doubt those people would act any different if they were in this sort of situation. You'd be just as distrustful and upset. If you have a kitty who has lots of space and windows to look out of, go rub behind its ears for a second. It'll at least know it's loved.

I think Thursday is a good day to do my weekly obsessions. Because I need to go through some of the week to have weekly obsessions, right? Duh. I also nearly put "snazzy" in place of "amazing," except then that would ruin the acronym for the feature...which is TACO. Come on now. It doesn't get any better than TACO for an acronym.
Michael Bolton is...the Awesomest Person Ever. Seriously. (NSFW)
Nintendo Finally Gets on the "Greatest Hits" Bandwagon
After a whole lot of forever, there are finally some "greatest hits"-ish pricing for games that aren't complete garbage. Well, I personally think Super Sluggers is partial garbage. And wait a second. Doesn't Wii Sports come with the console? Its inclusion in this special is strangely not useful at all. Either way, I wish I still had a Wii so I could rebuy Animal Crossing, because I could run around catching bugs and fishing for hours.

It looks better in its normal size, or in its gigantic wallpapered size, which is how it is on my computer at the moment. I love the cuteness and the darkness combined. And the smudgyness!

Now I just have to wait like twelve centuries for my case from Amazon to come. I also bought one of these clothbound books that I'm obsessed with just to make it over $25 so I could get free shipping, but that was probably a bad idea because the free shipping option usually takes longer. Speaking of things I'm currently obsessed with, I'm thinking of doing a weekly post with that theme. I've found some really cool stuff recently and I think I have a duty to share it. Maybe I'll do it on Tuesdays? Or even Mondays just because Mondays are absolute garbage. And I'd like to cheer people up. These posts have the potential to be really long too. Now I just need to make a snazzy title for the post. And probably a logo title because I love that crap. Welp time to go plan. See you guys tomorrow...or Tuesday.

Osama: *flipping through channels* Do we get MTV? Some Americans think the Jersey Shore kids are terrible but I find their lifestyle really invigorating. Ooh look it's me. God I look fat.
Man Behind Camera: Haha! You're watching yourself on tv! Hold on, I need to get my iPhone. It's underneath all of these incriminating documents isn't it...yeah there it is.
Osama: Thumbs up! We should play some Wii Bowling later.
Man Behind Camera: No turn back around and act like you don't know I'm taking the video.
Osama: Haha ok!
Man Behind Camera: Ok ready? Stop smiling! Ok. One, two--
*soccer ball flies through the window*
Osama: THOSE DAMN KIDS WAIT TIL I GET AHOLD OF THEM THEIR MOTHERS WILL HEAR FROM ME.
*meanwhile, on the outside of the barbed wire fence*
Kid: Son of a bitch. We'll never get our ball back.
Reporter: So what was he like?
Man: Well usually he came out on his porch at around 8 AM sharp. His robe is always hanging open. He just stands there with his coffee in his hand, looking around for at least ten minutes while he decides what to do.
Reporter: He just stands there.
Woman: Sometimes scratches his ass at the same time.
Man: Yeah, yeah that too.
Reporter: So would you say he kept to himself a lot?
Woman: I mean, sometimes he wouldn't even say hi in the morning.
Man: Yeah. Really rude.

Anyway! Let's check out Lacey from Paws Here Awhile Pet Resort in Beaver Cty, PA. I had a really hard time picking which photo I wanted to feature, because she looks so incredibly soft and pretty in this picture, but one of the other ones showcases the rest of her luxurious coat! The main reason I chose Lacey for today was because she looks a lot like my cat Star, who just died a few weeks ago. The tail did it for me. I loved that bushy tail when I was little. I used to run it over with my little cars and thought it was all good fun. Lacey is still a little girl though, not even a year old, but she was already abandoned. It must be tough to be a little kitten and think you've found your family forever, only to be abandoned shortly after. She looks like such a sweet little kitty though, and apparently she's very friendly and affectionate. Check her out today! How can you resist that face?! I'm melting from the cuteness.
I'll go ahead and dedicate today's post to Star. I was gonna go on and talk about this ridiculous Kinect peripheral that I heard about today, but let's save that to tomorrow. So in honor of Star, go adopt a kitty who needs a home and a family. And if you can't, donate to your local shelter. The kitties and the doggies and their humans will be thankful! :)
Star, who is currently eating all the grass she wants in kitty heaven.
And not barfing any of it up.

I humbly request that you gaze upon the blissful face of Dave Grohl as a pigtailed schoolgirl in the old "Learn to Fly" video. That right there. I want that exact image on a t-shirt. I will wear it every single day. In fact, I'll have seven made in alternating colors so I can wear one for each day. I'll probably put "GROHL" on the back like it's a sports team. Or if not the happy schoolgirl Grohl, then definitely a happy Nirvana-drummer Grohl. Because the guy was even more goofy looking as a skinny-ass long-haired big-mouthed Animal-wannabe. Now that I think about it, I should have a pic of him drumming on the front and a pic of Animal drumming on the back. Maybe that'll be my next shirt.
I remember being in love with that video when it came out. I was like...twelve? Perfect. It was love at first sight. Dave Grohl as the gay flight attendant. Dave Grohl as the pilot. Dave Grohl as the omgbiggestfanever schoolgirl. As the fat lady. As himself. And then there's the random Tenacious D appearance, and anybody who knows me at all knows I love them too. I'll definitely have to make several different shirts, as I clearly have far too many ideas for just one. None with short-haired Grohl though. Only long, wildman Grohl. I still to this day cannot believe I saw them in concert a couple years ago. That was just...ugh. I have no words. I'll have to hunt for some pictures from it.
A tiny bit of housekeeping; I've decided to do a Caturday every other week for now since I'm not posting as much as I'd like. If I did it every week, that's probably all I'd be posting. Trying to keep some variety here. Either way I'll probably have updates on my Grohl shirt progress, because I am serious about this, and I don't care what you say.
