THIS JUST IN: From the C.O. Mailbag

Dear Everyone at Cute Overload,

This note is long overdue, but better late than never I suppose.

The upshot of it all is that CO has saved my butt, over and over and over.

The longer story of it all is that I broke up with my boyfriend in August of 2011 and almost immediately thereafter attempted suicide. I survived, and have begun creating a new life with a wonderful man who I refer to as my “Upgrade”. However, my attempts to start over did not stop my ex and his new girlfriend (who had been my roommate) from harassing me incessantly, harassing my boyfriend, spreading around horrible things about me that were not true, etc. I put a restraining order on my ex-roommate, but the judge dismissed it as a ‘property dispute’. It’s been kind of like one of those nightmares where you keep feeling like you’re waking up, but you’re really not.

Praise Ceiling Cat for my boyfriend, though. Every time I would receive an email from one of them and would feel like my head was about to explode, he would say “Cute Overload! NOW!“. The humor, silliness, and generally overwhelming cuteness would put me in a better mood almost instantly and help me calm down much more quickly. Then I could write a response that was appropriate. It was very helpful — for me and for him :-)

I must also mention that this was all going on during the fall and winter, when my mental health issues are at their most debilitating. The fact that the worst I ever did was write an unsent poison pen letter is miraculous.

So, thank you thank you thank you, Cute Overload, from both me and my boyfriend.

Much love,
[Name witheld]

In His Dreams Saved Pup Runs Free

Sender-Inner Jason says he found puppy Laji in a dumpster in China! [face palm] Thankfully, Jason rescued the pup and he now has happy, happy dreams:

Nobody Understands Emo Trump

Emo Trump is not afraid to fire Gary Busey if the Buce can’t deliver the goods.

Emo Trump is an influential world leader sought out by politicians, businessmen, and humanitarians, who show their respect by not staring at Emo Trump’s combover.

Emo Trump has dug up dirt about the missing birth certificate that you won’t believe. Seriously, you won’t believe it.

Life is hard good for Emo Trump.

It’s ZZ (pronounced “zee zee”) from Camille. Idea stolen from Meg.

When The Dress Code Says, “Bun”

When a bun is required, say goodbye to casual. A denim shirt with a bun simply screams rhinestones! I’m thinking accessorize with fringe here and here, hand beading there, matching embroidery all over, and a little black lace to complete the look! Oh and could you carry a chandelier? Fabulousss!

This fashion round up is brought to you by Sarah M. and her new unnamed rabbit. The choices are: Sullivan, Flynn, Roan, Orion, Aden. (AKA Rhinestone Cowbun!)

An Update on Lil’ Drac!

People, could lil’ Drac be any more prosh? The answer is nyerhe. My husband who watched me watch this video just said: “Did I just hear multiple ‘Awhhnns’ for a blood-sucking bat? Yes Honey. You did. (And he’s a fruit bat, you eeeeediooot!)

I Said I Would Move!

Why you wanna make dis bed?

I was sleepin’ heah!

You couldn’t have waited?

Sender-inner Sharon H. says this is Skiffy, who was rescued from an abandoned building, “He looks distressed, but he is just meowing to signal for me to help him get down from the bed (too big of a jump for this little guy).”

I Has A Dream

I also has a heart. Kinda teh same ting.

Your Move, Arby’s

In a sign of increasing competition among the major fast-food chains, McDonalds has introduced the “Puppy Meal” — a cheeseburger, small fries, milk or juice box, and a puppy. In a response, Burger King said it plans to replace its scheduled “My Little Pony” promotion with “My Actual Pony.”

For here or to go, Megan C.?
