sir links a lot

Click here to use this cat font!!

After reading the dramatic confession in my last links post that my one and only true love, the light of my life, the bread to my butter, mister Ryan himself does not like my links posts because they're too overwhelming, a friend asked me if it's rude of him not to read them, because he doesn't like them either.

Everybody, it's okay if you don't like them!! If you don't want to click on every single thing I found interesting or funny over the past two weeks, that's fine. It doesn't hurt my feelings, I'm just sharing stuff I think others might like in a very vague passive way. Take it or leave it. Whatevskies.

And if you've never seen Trailer Park Boys I don't know what to tell you.  My favorite thing he's ever said was that he didn't want to jump in the lake because there's "lurches in there". hahahahaha ... or "apparently it's clear to see who makes the pants here, sorry boys" ... or "get two birds stoned at once" (which I actually use quite a bit in real life).

So uh, you can order praying mantids online. If you're into that kind of thing.

This is only one person's opinion of course, but it's very disturbing to think about. Why do some doctors encourage more frequent pelvic exams on attractive women than unattractive? Ew.
