Me: I remember when I was really little, I was so saddened the first time we went to the shelter and I saw a kitten in a cage. I asked my mom how much they were, and then spent like four hours back home, carefully using my crayons to draw a realistic $30 bill, thinking if I had the money, she wouldn’t say no. I even made sure to draw on both sides. I think I’ll just die if our child ever does something like that.

Sean: Like what? Try to commit fraud? {cheesy wink}

“Please see the email below. It looks like an obvious phishing attempt. That’s why I clicked on the link and provided all of my personal information. Thanks, Sean.”

I don’t typically like to rub my utter awesome in people’s faces, but sometimes… well sometimes I’m just so undeniabley NOT nerdy, it would be a sin to not share…

Brittney: Do we have any shows recorded that we need to catch up on?

Sean: Um.. we have one episode of Lost.. and two House’s.

Brittney: Both alike in dignity, in Fair Verona where we lay our scene?

Sean: …?

Brittney: Romeo & Juliet. Two houses, both alike.. etc.

Sean: Ohmygod…

Dear iPhone God…

Dear iPhone God,

Remember that time my cat knocked my phone off the kitchen island and it slammed onto the tile floor and got the white screen of death? Thank you for blessing me with a crafty husband, several video tutorials on breaking into iPhones to replace screens, and a company in Hong Kong who could overnight me one for $50.00 so I wouldn’t need to blow $400.00 on a new phone. That was awesome.

But what was MORE awesome was last night, when I decided it would be a totally wise idea to set my iPhone in the basket I keep on the edge of the tub because it was VITAL I keep texting my little cousin about her first big crush while bathing; and at the exact moment I leaned back with my eyes closed to relax, my new kitten Sully decided he should attempt to leap into the tub — only to discover it was filled with water mid-leap, and redirect his landing goal to MY HEAD.

And then when he landed there, in full claw glory, and knocked the basket into the water with my iPhone and I had to first remove a feline from MY FACE before grabbing it — you were awesome once more by blessing me with the same husband who did NOT get mad (despite having reminded me a good 457 times that a BATHTUB is not the best place to utilize a CELL PHONE) and silently tore it apart MacGyver-style in record timing before using my blow dryer to painstakingly hand-dry each piece.

And the whole time, the only thing I could think of was not the cost of a new phone, not the important contact numbers it held or the photos it contained… but instead… HOW WILL I CHECK TWITTER FROM BED?!

Thank you (yet again),

Brittney

In reaction to a solving hunger commercial…

Sean: One in eight Americans is struggling with hunger?!
Brittney: Is it because the other seven ate everything?
