Forgetting the big picture

February 4, 2011

I haven’t even mentioned the move! Goodness me, last November me and the Real Estate Agent* finally made the big move and found a nice two bedroom** on the edge of Noe Valley and Glen Park.

** God, the video is still SO GOOD.

This creates more questions than it answers

My best friend recently sent me this:

1. Romance? On a COPS show?
2. There was an ANIMATED version of COPS and I didn’t know?!?


Dear Internet:

January 8, 2010

There are a lot of pictures and photos of octopus on the internet, and there are a lot of pictures and photos  of moose on the internet, but there doesn’t seem to be a single picture or photo of BOTH ANIMALS on the internet. Please fix this ASAP.
