Depression Can Suck It

Cuteologist Barbara B. writes: “I just wanted to say thank you to all of you that put the calendar together. I was really bummed out last year when I was lamely wandering through my grocery store, shuffling toward some overpriced chocolate in ratty sweatpants. Through the fog of depression I picked up the 2011 Cute Overload calendar and instantly felt better.”

“I brought it home and scribbled down a few birthdays coming up and my roommates and I planned a few parties, the calender made us laugh and gave me things to look forward to. Any day I just wanted to go back to bed and give up, I’d check the calender and laugh at the cute animals.”

She continued; “As months passed the pictures got cut out and put into letters to my best friend Ashley. She’s in peace corps in Zambia. After we left college we both explored new areas and she too was homesick and alone in a new place (and fighting malaria, dysentery, etc). One of the few bright spots for Ash are letters and the cuteoverload pictures and captions are exactly her style of humor.”

“Looking back at 2011, that calendar kept me organized and upbeat. You really dont know how much it helped. I’m sure sometimes you guys feel like your job is a tad silly, but truly you’re doing a valuable service. Thanks and I can’t wait for the new year to start so I can put up my new 2012 Cute Overload calendar.”

PS I’m doing really awesome now. Depression can suck it!”

Don’t You Forget About Me

Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t you forget about me.

Will you stand above me?
Look my way and never love me?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling,
Down, down, down…

Don’t Give Me That Face

No, you can’t borrow the car tonight. Yes it is fair. You’re only 7 years old.

This next song’s a little bluesy number…

Woke up this morning, I got the blues so baaaad.

Just got out on parole,

Got no food in my bowl,

I’m packin’ up my bags,

But before I go,

I’m already regrettin’,

how I’m gonna steal your soul.

Loyal to the End

Pup “Hawkeye” paid his last respects to fallen Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson, killed August 6. So very, very sad.

Just Looking for a Silver Lining, Here…

Look, I’m cool with the whole cone thing. Medically necessary, keeps me disciplined, yadda yadda — I get it. I’m just saying, as long as I have to wear this, why not pour a little kibble in here? That too much to ask?

How does he do it? How?!

Mikey (great name!) was born without eyes to see. He will live a long and happy life however. He’s up for adoption at Adopt-A-LOL and if you’d like to help with his care, you can donate.

So, How’s Your Day Going?

Any better than Little Lord Chinchillaroy’s here?

The Final Disapproval

Dear bun Cinnamon, the original and most famous Disapproving Rabbit, has passed away after 13 long bunneh years of aloof disinterest.

Let’s all bow our heads in Bunday unison and together say: “Harummmph!” for the dearly departed, much-adored, Cinnamon:



Thank you for the inspiration, Pamela D. Our condolences to DisapprovingRabbits.com founders Sharon and Bill.
