The Ascent of Mount Hand

I left base camp early on the second morning, and occupied myself until midday by navigating a slow circuitous route across the Fingertip Ridges…

The terrain was rugged and unmanicured...

… the route, although tedious and time-consuming, would place me advantageously for my final assault on Big Index the next morning…

I claim this finger in the name of Lizardania!

Reaching the peak at last, I stared down into the Palm Valley below, now an impossibly small tableaux of villages and farmlands where once I walked as but one among multitudes, yet now alone in the giddy horror of true isolation…

And the worst part is, I can still hear the #%@&ing yodeling from here.

Because it’s there, Sarah G.

“Kittens, Inspired by Kittens”

Don’t ask what the title of this movie means.

Just watch. The verbal captions of a Kitten photo book by a six year old.

The Official Cute Overload Martini

6 parts gin
2 parts vodka
1 part Lillet blanc
Lemon twist Kitty head

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice and shake well. Strain into a chillin’ martini glass and garnish with lemon twist kitty head.

A couple of those little onions would be nice, too.

We maded you a martini, Sandy B., but we drinked it.
(Recipe based on the classic James Bond martini. More recipes here.)


Knitting + Kittens = KNITTENS!

Why not get a “Pomster”?


[shifty eyes] I’m still checking if they exist. Something about the beady-eye to paw ratio scares me.

This pocket pet pomster was created by Scuzzi for a contest. No, you can’t have one.

Fuhst, you must STRAIN ZUH KITTEN

I could really go for a cigar right now, for some reason.

It tastes so good when it hits your lips!!!

Another pic from the insane Victoria fires over in Aussie-tralia. Don’t miss this koala we featured earlier, also from a similar scene.

Via DListed:

Look at the koala’s little tongue! And the koala’s paw on the fireman’s hand! The koala is so polite and so thankful! Like a little person! This makes me want to truckjack a Sparklett’s water truck and drive through the ocean to Australia.


Thanks Mr. Michael K. ;) You can help at the Australia Red Cross.
