I Like The Way You Do That Right Thurr

An innocent Facebook post implanted a bunch of early '00's rap songs into my head last night. I dropped it like it's hot and shook my tailfeather until the novelty wore off and I remembered I wasn't 17 anymore.

(This is the link, but be warned that it's irreverent. Click at your own risk. )

Moving along, I have good news! Despite our rough start, husband and I are finally under contract on a house! It has doors and rooms and a yard and everything. We are all like :D around here.

Especially this guy:

This is Monty, a stray kitty that decided to adopt us about a week ago. I called the vet on his rabies tag, but they never got back in touch with me, so I take it to mean either they can't be bothered to contact his owners, or his owners just don't care. He's unneutered, so before we officially add him to the clan, I'm going to take him to the vet to get tested and snipped, and then he's going to be the number one vole killer at the new house.


I mocked up a blog/website for my university's fine arts & literary magazine as my end-of-semester project. Give it a look and tell me what you think, eh? Mountain Laurels


I think I strained my Achilles tendon or something running the other day. I stumbled and felt pain, finished my run, and have been limping with increasing pain. Not cool, leg. Not cool. 

Happy Hump Day! Hump your neighbor. 
Or not. Use your discretion.

Wow, drop it like it's hot. That's older than the song that popped in my head the other day. Hell Yeah by's the REMIX!!
chitty chitty bang bang boom like kapow!!

Also, YAY!!! You got a house!!

That cat is adorable. I love his coloring.

The Moutain Laurels blog is purty. My only peeve (and it's only because I have dumb old eyes) the white on black. But again, I have dumb old eyes. DAMN MY EYES!! (too late)

Running is for suckers. ;) Unless of course your running from or after zombs.

Now it's time for me to eat my cheesy taters and drink ma' tea.

I'm old. Older than Hannah I bet. So yeah, the black and white hurts my crappy eyes too. It's really pretty tho. Love both photos on the homepage.

Monty is so cute!

Baby B brought his class hamster around a couple weekends ago. Thought the dogs would scare him to death, but he would get in his little ball and chase them around. Heh.

Sarah Ahiers said...

Yay monty! And Yay house! I can't wait to see pictures!
And a yard?! I sense gardening in your future.
GASP! You could grow catnip!!!

Congratulations on the house! It's such an awesome thing to accomplish.

Crystal Cook said...

LOVE this post. :) Congrats on your house!!! I'm like this :D with you! Your little kitty guy is cute I'm glad you get to keep him. And I checked out your blog mock up and it looks really, really good. I love the banner at the top, the font looks perfect.

Hamster pong? *snort* hilarious. :) It's so good to talk to you again Summer.

Lola Sharp said...

I like the chingy lyrics. Also congrats on the house.

Talli Roland said...

Shake your tailfeather! Ugh...

Poor Monty! I'm so glad you're giving him a good home. And yay for your house! That's fantastic.

Michelle in a shell said...

I've been on an early 00's kick lately- Check out the pandora station and it'll really make you want to shake your tailfeather :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's great news about the house! And I like that version of Pong.

Linda G. said...

Hooray for the house contract! Congrats! And on your new kitty addition, too. :)

The website you mocked up is great -- eye-catching and easy to navigate. I like it.

James Garcia Jr said...

Congrats on the house and being adopted by Monty... Or was it you adopting Monty? Anyway, I showed the photo of Monty to my cat "Jones" and he approved, so I think you'll be fine with the new addition to your clan. ;)


Summer Ross said...

I looked at the page and thing the picture is really pretty.

Monty looks sweet.

Congrats on the house!

yokohamamama said...

Yay!! A new kitteh for the new house--perfect:-))

(just noticed that you renamed your blog...I am so the new look, though! Looking forward to reading other things you choose to write about in addition to writing about writing...:-))

Jessica Lemmon said...

I dare not click on that link lest I become infested with earworms! ;) Congrats on your house & the new member of your family!

Liz said...

Congrats on the house! Yay kitty! :)

The Words Crafter said...

Let's see: Yay!!!!!! For the house!!!

Awwwww, for adopting the kitty, he's cute!

Dang! I really hope you heal quickly. I have nerve damage from an bike wreck (very comical) and it gives me grief all the time.

I clicked onto the new the baby birds!!!

House contracts require celebration. Generally in the form of beer. I'll get right on that for you.


Carolina M. Valdez Schneider said...

Oh, sorry to hear about the leg pain. But congrats on the house contract! That's so exciting. We're thinking about building a new home in the coming year.

Hope you feel better soon!

Anita said...

Congrats on the house! That's such a wonderful feeling! Not a wonderful feeling is the achilles thing. I had the same pain a couple months ago...worse at night. I suggest ice, ice, ice and don't run for awhile. I swam instead. Also gentle, slow stretching helps and ibupro.

Stina said...

Sorry about your archilles. That's one of my biggest fears, especially of it going ping and needed surgery to repair it. I've been close a few times to injurying mine.

Cute kitty. He's lucky to have found you and the clan.

Love the new look btw. :D

Unknown said...

Congrats on your house! There are few greater feelings. Well besides dropping it like it's hot... ;)

Krispy said...

Found my way over here via Sophia's award-giving linkage. :)

Congrats on the house and the kitty! He's adorbs. My grandma adopted a stray cat too by deciding to feed her. So she waits around the door everyday around dinner time.

Also, early 00s / late 90s music ftw!
