I just had to post this video because this basically is my cat Rosie in the morning if she doesn’t have food. She likes to jump up on my dresser and play with everything that she shouldn’t. Enjoy…and as you do, feel bad for me that Rosie does this!
This weekend I learned a valuable lesson…having four cats, two of which don’t officially belong, in a one bedroom apartment definitely is not ideal. My boyfriend had a couple of friends staying with him and since one of his cats likes to jet out the door the second it’s open, he decided he didn’t want to leave his cats at his house when he wasn’t there. This decision was made at 10:00 on Saturday night. After we decided they would come to my house, we realized there was only one cat carrier in his house, so the more scaredy-cat cat got to ride in the carrier and his other cat got to ride in style on my lap. She was really good, at least until we got to my house, and spent the ride looking out the window. Cheddar, the cat in the carrier wasn’t quite as calm, and he meowed and yowled for the entire five minute drive. When we got to my house, we switched cats, with my boyfriend taking Cisco, the lose one, and me taking Cheddar. We made in into my apartment successfully and went straight to my room to avoid my two cats. Rosie, my friendlier, more curious cat, spent the majority of the night sticking her foot under my bedroom door and crying loudly because she usually sleeps in my room with me. Cisco, my boyfriend’s friendlier cat seemed to get a kick out of this and spent a lot of time sitting there just watching Rosie’s foot. Cheddar spent the night under the bed. All in all, it honestly wasn’t too bad of a sleepover with the cats, but it definitely wasn’t ideal. Our cats are going to have to suck it up though and get used to each other because in less than a month they’ll be living together for real. That will be the REAL unideal situation for awhile!
Without further adieu, we present you with today’s dose of cuteness. I officially want a baby hedgehog!
A few of us here in the office just finished the last two episodes of the last season of Dexter. I know, I know, we were way behind, but at least we have less time to wait for the next season now and with an ending like that one, I’m pretty glad about that. Halfway through the last episode I totally knew how it was going to end…to the point where I didn’t even want to watch it because I knew it would be so tense. Until halfway through that last episode though, I totally wasn’t anticipating the season ending like that. I think this was definitely one of the best seasons yet and definitely comparable to the first. I do think the whole Deb/Dexter thing is pretty strange though and I wonder if Deb would have come to the conclusion that she did had it not been for her psychiatrist. That being said, here is a sneak peek of the first two minutes of the seventh season. SPOILER ALERT- DON’T watch this if you haven’t seen all of the other seasons to completion.
If you’re at a wedding and the best man starts his speech with “FYI everybody, it’s about to get real weird in here,” go ahead and brace yourself.
One resourceful groomsman decided to show off his musical talents at his brother’s wedding reception in Harrisburg, Penn., by turning part of his speech into a video spoof of The Lonely Island’s “I’m On A Boat.”
The nearly four-minute adaptation aptly titled “I’m In A Wedding” features best man Jarrett Juran — along with groomsmen Bryan Beistline, Brandon Wells and Jamie Klahr — dancing to a remix of the popular tune that made its debut on “Saturday Night Live” back in 2009.
Dads are supposed to be fearless. If their kids are afraid of big scary amusement park rides, they’re on line for the roller coaster, providing words of encouragement. Right? Not so much for the star of this YouTube video. In three minutes and fifteen seconds of role reversal at its finest, he screams while his little girl has the time of her life.
The ride, identified by a commenter, is The Screaming Swing at the Dollywood amusement park in Tennessee. And, dad takes the name very literally. He lets out continuous high-pitched yelps, and at one point even shouts, “NEVER AGAIN, GRACE ELIZABETH.”
As I’m sure you know by now, all of us over here at Crazy Dog sure do love us some bacon! Since this is the case, I just had to share the below article with all of you that I found on yahoo.com because I’m sure some of you will be excited as we are. Take bacon and add it to a sundae…what could be better? Sounds like heaven for your mouth to me. And who do we have to thank for this deliciousness? Burger King, of course! They’re introducing this sundae tomorrow, but only for a limited time. I know where I’ll be tomorrow after work…and it’s definitely not the gym!
Burger King to Introduce Bacon Sundae
By Dylan Stableford
Would you buy a bacon sundae? Burger King is betting you will.
The fast-food chain famous for the Whopper will introduce the limited-time dessert on Thursday as part of its new summer menu. The 510-calorie sundae—vanilla soft serve topped with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon—has 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar.
Earlier this year, Burger King rolled out an expanded menu with healthier fare—fruit smoothies, wraps and salads—with anadvertising campaign featuring soccer star David Beckham. The bacon sundae, available through Sept. 3, would seem to be a strategic move in the polar opposite direction—and something akin to Jack in the Box’s 1,081-calorie bacon milkshake, which debuted in February.
It also seems to be an attempt to answer Taco Bell’s wildly popular Doritos Locos Taco, which became “the most successful product launch in the chain’s history” after 100 million were sold in the 10 weeks following its launch in March.
Taco Bell, for its part, is going “upscale.” The “Cantina Bell” menu, debuting in July, will have “fresh ingredients such as black beans, ‘fire-roasted’ corn salsa, cilantro rice, pico de gallo and citrus- and herb-marinated chicken that many consumers have come to associate with Chipotle,” according to Advertising Age.
Burger King’s summer menu also includes a Memphis pulled-pork BBQ sandwich, Carolina BBQ Whopper or chicken sandwich, Texas BBQ Whopper or chicken sandwich, sweet potato fries and frozen lemonade.
The bacon sundae, it’s worth noting, is downright healthy compared to the Krispy Kreme bacon cheeseburger—a 1,500-calorie behemoth that replaces the buns with doughnuts.
That burger, popularized by Paula Deen, originated at a Massachusetts state fair.
Some adults tend to overthink things when it comes to dating. But for kids, the key to winning over a crush is as simple as planning a romantic trip to the dinosaur museum.
In a hilarious video segment titled “Kidstructive Criticism,” writer and actress Corey Podell asks children for advice on multiple topics including joining an online dating site, getting out of the friend zone and dressing to impress.
But a woman can’t take pointers from just anyone. She has to get to know these so-called experts before even thinking about heeding their advice.
“What do you look for in a guy?” Podell asks a young girl in the video.
“I look for love,” the girl says.
Fair enough. But when Podell asks one boy a similar question, he reveals he isn’t exactly looking for a deep connection.
“What do you look for in a girlfriend?” Podell inquires.
“Pretty much the prettiness,” the young boy says.
And ladies, when things aren’t going exactly as planned, remember there’s always a way out: “Just cancel.”
Last night was the Season Premiere of True Blood! Did you watch it?! A bunch of us here at Crazy Dog did. We went to our bosses’ house and enjoyed a feast of pulled pork, watermelon salad (which is delicious if you’ve never had it), baked beans, macaroni salad, and red velvet cupcakes for dessert. We also had some red sangria to celebrate, of course. The episode started a little slow for me, but I thought it was definitely better than the start of season 4 with the weird fairies that turned into trolls. The preview for what’s to come this season definitely makes the season look pretty intense, but how could it not be when there are vampires and werewolves involved? I have read all of the books that the show is based on and the show is pretty different, but I am interested to see where the season goes. Here’s a little teaser for all of you who didn’t see last night’s episode and what’s to come.
If you loved the Hunger Games as much as we did, you’re probably looking for the next big series to take over your life.
