Oh, and one final note…
It was me
I keep typing things about how much I love everybody and how bummed I am but none of it is coming out right and I tried to make one last Blingee that would pay proper tribute to this wonderful place but it came out really ugly but WHATEVER YOU CAN DEAL ALSO I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!
You know you love me, XOXO, catweazle
Thank you, Scott. I hope you know there are Monsters all over meeting in secret and trying to think of ways to help out any “keep Videogum alive-esque somehow” efforts as soon as we see the bat signal! This place is (was ) the bomb and I’m grateful that we had it for as long as we did.
To this day I am still haunted by the fact that I didn’t rotate the wig slightly to the right in the Blingee I made out of that picture.
If anybody is looking to drown their sorrows tonight, I can guarantee that this Twilight drinking game will help (it resulted in one of the top three drunkest nights in my life):
-Drink any time Bella says or does something that makes you feel worried about feminism
-Drink any time Jacob takes off his shirt
-Drink any time somebody shows off their magical vampire abilities
-Drink any time two characters stare wordlessly at each other for at least three consecutive cuts
I think I’m just going to go read all the friendly chats now.
I had a dream last night that my apartment was infested with cockroaches and then I woke up to the nightmare of a world without Jay Leno on TV.
As Winston Churchill once said, “Go big or go home.”
Remember the Monsters’ Ball that week that was almost 100% Banana Sweater? AKA the best Monsters’ Ball?
I know this is not what I was supposed to take away from this but OH MY GOD THE BAAAAAAABIES!!!! Also LOL or whatever.

These reposts are making me sad that I wasn’t here in the Lindsay days
Somebody already had the name catweazle so I had to register as catweazlol
It does seem weird to have a website going away be such a big deal but really when you think about it, and I don’t want to speak for anybody else but it’s true for me, it’s like when you realize that you spend way more time with the people you work with than anybody else in your life and since I spend more time interacting with you guys in the comment section when I’m at work than actually conversing with my coworkers, it’s like that x2, plus I actually like all of you guys and I don’t like a lot of my coworkers! And I definitely like Kelly more than my boss! So even though it’s the internet, it’s still been such a big part of my day to day life that there’s going to be a big gaping hole! So what I’m saying is that I will not be surprised if this becomes a topic when I go to therapy tonight so you’re not alone.
What a day already! The CTA was messed up more than usual this morning so I was late to work which was bad because I had to meet with HR first thing to talk about the fact that I’m quitting and they suggested that I might get sued which is not pleasant but also not likely and whatever I don’t even care I just want to get the f out of here! And then I told a couple of people in my department that I’m leaving and they were super sad which was sad but also nice in a way too I guess? And now I have to work for two more weeks and pretend I care and it’s actually kind of busy right now but I’m just like “Whatever!!!” But also I had thought that my shift at my new job was going to be super early in the morning but I just found out that I can actually have the same schedule I have now thank god! I was trying to convince myself that working super early would be ok but I can barely drag myself out of bed every morning as it is.
On the whole though this day is good because I have been working towards switching to this new job for a couple of months now and I haven’t been able to tell anybody at work about it until today and it is SUCH a relief. I hate keeping secrets!
Oh my god I forgot about this but it just made me laugh so hard again.
And ugh you guys, I want to savor these last couple of days but my stupid company is distracting me with all these quitting formalities (which apparently include mentioning that though they really love me and will miss me, if they really wanted to they could sue me for leaving). You know what they say, if you love something, let it go and get a job that will pay them a decent salary!
I’m pretty sure my first comment here was nominating Code 46 and I’m still sad it wasn’t chosen because SERIOUSLY, that movie.
The tiny kitten jumping all over that dog! Ahh! I’m so sad that when I get my cat this website won’t exist anymore. I was going to cat-photo-spam the shit out of the How Was Your Day Today posts
That’s actually not true! I’ve read all the original books and stories and Moriarty only actually appears in The Final Problem, where he dies. I think he’s mentioned in passing one or two others but much like Irene Adler he’s become iconic just for being in one story.
So the Sherlocked Development Tumblr is the best and you should look at it. They got a lot of great material this season.
