Mom and I were talking tonight--after she'd been ruffling through CafePress all day--and she told me about a t-shirt she almost ordered for me. Are you ready? Are you sitting? It said:
I *heart* Meerkats!
OH. MY. GOD. I have to find it again and order it for myself. I have something of a twisted love for meerkats ever since my last trip to the Dallas zoo a few months ago. They're dirty and spastic and cute.
While I was searching for "I *heart* Meerkat t-shirts online just now I found another CafePress shop that specializes in "I *heart*" shirts (although the Meerkats remain elusive). Here are my backups in case I never find the Meerkats.
I *heart* penguins!
I *heart* Jehovah's Witnesses!
I *heart* adverbs!
I can't explain my newborn obsession with funky tees, but these fit the bill I think. OK, fine, I'm secretly trying to give Goose's "Hogwarts Rocks!" t-shirt a run for its money.
Now, in real world news...
Haven't been online much the last couple of days due to real life goings on. Monday was my first day in the Children's Lit/Film class. Monday was intro day (no biggie), yesterday I was a tad nervous because I had to lead an introductory discussion on film and film terminology (went fine). Thesis Director was in some major pain yesterday, which turned to bigger pain and landed her in the hospital today. She called around 4:45 this afternoon after all day in the emergency room, so I took her home. It's lookin' like kidney stones at this point. I hope she'll stay home tomorrow and recoop a bit more before she jumps back in the classroom. But she's hard-headed and am sure that if she's not flat on her back she'll be there. But I can understand that given that I'm the same way. I only take off sick if I really don't wanna be somewhere or am on the verge of death (like taking off from the jc last night because I was in a pissy mood).
Speaking of last night's pissy mood, it got me in the mood to watch the first Pirates of the Caribbean which I give an enthusiastic 3 vibrator salute (kidding, shut your mouths).
Listening: "Bleeding Out"...Dishwalla
Update: 7:31pm -- I found the Meerkats!!!
