Cats wearing tights!!!

When a friend sent me a link of cats wearing tights last week, I was totally unprepared for what I was about to witness. In fact, I was drinking (hot) coffee when I opened up the email and laughed so hard that I *almost* shot coffee out of my nose. Now, I will admit to the internet that, yes, I am one of those “crazy” people that thoroughly enjoys watching stupidly (cute) cat videos on YouTube for endless hours  — but this my friends, THIS TAKES THE CAKE! Go ahead and check out some more hilarious photos here.

At times, I could hum for several minutes and not even notice that I’m doing it (as an old roommate brought to my attention –  I think it drove her crazy). The strange part is, I unconsciously hum the most ridiculous song and it’s been going on for as long as I can remember! A couple of weeks ago, I was at the grocery store perusing the vegetable and fruit section –  humming the Indiana Jones theme song – when I heard someone else join in! I immediately snapped out of my Indy trance, looked to my right and saw the most attractive man smiling and humming. I burst into a nervous cackle and then proceeded to turn bright red! My words completely failed me and all I could do was quickly bag the kale I held in my shaking hands and speed walk to the cashier, where of course, I stood in the worlds …
