What's becoming the daily website update

These all come from Fab sales.

Totally looking into a Father's Day present from that one.

This stuff is totally cute.


I love me some witty stationery.

I'm kind of excited about the knee highs.

Okay I should probably stop now. :)

I just discovered two new websites.

Yes, I just applied. Hopefully I'll become a TaskRabbit soon!

So cool! Next place I go, I'm looking into this. Well, if I'm going to one of the places they have something for. Note it, future travelers. I already sent it to my friend Sarah for her honeymoon fun.

The day I tried to overwhelm Connor with awesomeness. It sort of worked.

My cat has been a total jerk lately, meowing all damn night or starting up early in the morning, jumping up on surfaces he's not supposed to be on, continuing the meowing all day...so pretty much we're exhausted and we kind of hate him right now. Mark said he's trying to tell himself it's training for having children. Luckily I've already been thinking that about Connor for a couple years now.
Earlier today I thought I'd try to kill him with kindness. We think he's been meowing his ass off because I let him go outside by himself a few times and now he's had a taste of freedom. I'm not going to let him do that anymore for several reasons (this meowing thing being one of them) so I thought I'd try to make the indoors more interesting. I made a trip to Pet Club and bought him:

omg it's so good

organic cat grass, which he buried his face in for about ten minutes and then promptly threw up:

didn't see that coming, did you?

(bet you've never seen a picture of cat barf in a blog before, have you? sorry. it's not so bad. it's all part of the entertainment value you get here at Discovery.)

omg it's so beautiful

a new scratcher, which, as you can see in this picture, he ignored for a while, and...(this is the big reveal)

Hex Bugs! Trust me, get one or two of these for your cat. It will be his new favorite toy. Mark got a couple for free from work a while ago but Connor ran the batteries down and I went to CVS once to see if they had them (they're those tiny little weird circular ones) and they didn't and I think we've since lost them. So I just went out and got some more. I found them at Toys 'R' Us. They're kind of expensive for cat toys but luckily they were having a buy one, get one half off sale. They also apparently sell the batteries, so now I know. Now that I look at the Toys 'R' Us website, they're two dollars cheaper there, so get them online, dudes. I paid $8.99 for ones that are $6.99 on the website. Here's another picture of Connor and his enjoyment if you aren't sold yet:

Whatever, it might not look like much, but he's having the time of his life, trust me. It wasn't fun for me when the damn thing got stuck between the bookshelf and the wall though. I thought it was a goner for a few minutes and I was just going to have to listen to it buzz until it died. I'm not gonna lie, I had a few moments of small panic before I told myself to calm down, this was not a crisis. I was able to flick it out with a drumstick, believe it or not. Like a real one, not one made out of chicken.

Speaking of chicken, I'm hungry. Where's Mark with my damn dinner?

I knew it...
