I Could Never Get Past This Part

You stand inside the cavernous Temple of Ashcamatazz. Light from nearby torches barely pierces the gloomy darkness. At the north end you see the Chalice of Secrets in its place atop the high priest’s altar. There is an exit to the south.
There is a level 12 Mage here, between you and the altar.

> talk to mage
The Mage does not return your greeting.

> kill mage
What do you want to kill the Mage with?

> banana
You cannot kill the Mage with the banana.

> kill mage with sword

As you draw your weapon, the Mage calmly raises his robed hand and summons the +5 Chinchilla of Fluffiness. As you stare into its beady eyes, you can feel the life drain from your body.

Let’s just play Pong, J.S.

Kitteh Upskirt!

OMG, stop looking.

Nothing to see here, MOVE ALONG!

Jamie H. is 2 for 2.

I like the new girl but she’s a little cold

Don’t get me wrong, she’s hot and all, but—

Kinda inflexible, Jamie H.

THIS JUST IN: A ladybug plays with sprinkles

Sender-Inner Justin R. says that cat “Tricky” had a very difficult birth where all kittens died except…

this one.


Teacher’s Pest

You know, there was a time when I enjoyed teaching kindergarten. I sailed into that classroom on a cloud of joy, greeted by happy children eager to learn and grow.

And then he arrived. Now they snicker whenever my back is turned, conspirators sharing some unspoken secret. I know he’s behind it all, subtly mocking me without saying a word. I don’t know how he does it, but I won’t rest until I find out.

Actually, Tubby is the chinch in this picture, by Ippo456 of Chinchilla Nation!

Longtime Cuteologists are familiar with Rule of Cuteness #35: If you try to eat your own appendage, it’s cute.

Less well-known is its corollary: If someone else is eating a different appendage at the same time, it’s ultra-cute.

No need to buy them chew toys, Cindilla T.

Here come the waterworks!

Sender Inner Mikkio P. points us to a heart-warming story, also covered by Finnish television, of a woman who took an alpaca to cheer folks up in the hospital.

According to the Finnish site Sirpucca the story goes like this. (Translated from Finnish via Google Translate! Not her actual English!)

“We received an invitation to visit the Gulf of Joensuu Home chronically ill hospital ward seven. Tess and I took the invitation with pleasure.”

“Three hours went by as fast as the elevator, which drove us from one section to another.”

“It sure was wonderful to see old people on the face of happiness and sorrow to tears of mine sainhan I wiped my eyes.”

That last pic is just too sweet. Alpacas for the win! See all the photos and much more over at Sirpucca.

Crush Hour Traffic

Mind you, I’m not complaining. Overall, it’s comfortable; the atmosphere is convivial, the staff is attentive and personable, and I feel a sense of belonging. But I really must say, for what they’re charging…

… this health club really could spring for another treadmill.

Hey, times are tough, J.S.
