HIS DIRECTORIAL DEBUT HAS ARRIVED (Just in time for the academy to hate it)

It’s called: Potsie and Ello vs. (Birthday Boy) Oscar

Leukemia_2 Ichat_image2008151634 Congratulations on a stellar movie, and first BIRTHDAY Oscar, Amy, Ello, Potsie & Judd :D And Judd, thanks for keeping the kicking to a minimum.

Enhance!

Peeps! We’ve made an enhancement to yer Cute Overload viewin’ experience.

While eating your banana snacks and checking Cute Overload as usual, you may experience some temporary glitches as we make an upgrade. (Or you may not notice any gleetches at all.)

What happened? We made all the links to cuteoverload appear as "cuteoverload.com" instead of "mfrost.typepad.com."


Slow loris 3 by Bornean.

What does this mean to you? It means that all paths to cuteoverload.com are simpler and clearer than before. No need to remember anything but cuteoverload.com!

If you’re seeing things load funny, just wait, the mapping should be done shortly.

Our latest quiz was a categorical success!  And our winners, randomly selected, are Wylie and Betty M.!  Congratulations, and we’ll be dropping your Cute Overload Page-A-Day Calendar down your chimney soon.

Now, the answers:

( G ) Where in California will you find Avalon?  Answer: Santa Catalina Island
( E ) Who doesn’t belong on this list (and why)?  Our preferred answer was Katharine Hepburn.  All the others played characters with "cat" in their names (Cat Ballou, Catwoman, Maggie the Cat).  However, many peeps found other equally accurate answers, which we accepted.

( H ) A ceramic cat with one raised paw is considered lucky in what country?  Answer: Japan
