Something Sucks On My Body

by Hubert

Mosquitoes mostly. Ok, completely. That's why I generally stay indoors. Oh, and I do poorly in hot and humid weather.

So I'm at a friend's place today and I realize I don't like the following things:

The sun

Also, I don't know how to make conversation with people I don't know. But that's always been the case.

So I can't tell if I've just been depressed for the past two years or I'm supposed to feel like this.

And then...I think...

I didn't bring Big Fat Penguin! Yes! That was the problem. I should bring Big Fat Penguin to more parties. People like talking to giant plush penguins.

edit: Next morning, looked at my feet and legs, three dozen mosquito bites. Now to go to the pharmacy to get anti itch cream...

Best Food Ever

by Hubert

There is a diner called THE PENGUIN DINER!!!

Unfortunately, it is in Delaware so I will not be going anytime soon.

Good news is, they will ship many penguin items to your doorstep! A co-worker was nice enough to buy me an eraser shaped like a penguin. Of course, I will never actually use said eraser for such activities.

An Almost Fail

by Hubert

Yesterday I was on a date (yes really), and we were waiting for Toy Story 3. One of the ads before the movie was for the TV show "Adventure Time with Finn and Jake", and one of the scenes had dozens of penguins, to which I exclaimed "PENGUINS!", as I sat next to my date.

I don't think she noticed, thankfully.

And FYI, you can see a video of the penguins here, to see just how adorable they are. They are penguins after all.

Currently Playing: Green Day Rock Band and Final Fantasy XIII for Playstation 3

Now you have to click for adorable pictures.

Marmot Eating a Biscuit!

by Colleen

Hola peeps!

Here is a video introduced to me in a comment thread this morning as: the best video of a marmot eating a bed. I love the assonance/alliteration effect you get from the title. It's cuter if you say it out loud and have your voice get louder and higher in pitch at the end of 'marMOT' and 'bisCUIT'. :D The video's pretty cute too. I'm at work so I can't properly imbed it into the post. Unless Hubert does something about it.

edit: Hubert here, ftfy Col. :)
