Oh dear. When I was about 10, I had a very large sweatshirt with a picture of a kitten looking mopey or something, and it said “I don’t do Mondays.” I was a total Garfield for a solid year of my life. I bet we would have been friends.

Kelly, why won’t you let your mom sniff your neck anymore?? Your sweet mother only wants this one thing and you deny her?

I’m a Claire (Clare, really) too!! And I felt very scolded by this video.

I spent the entire video cringing and waiting for the sure-to-be-horrifying “rap” version. I do have to give her credit for leaving that out.

And apparently, “Avril Lavigne” is a genre of music?

Based on this video, I’ve concluded that hedgehogs chew with their eyes.

They do use one, remember when Drew said “so should we get….stuff?”

That’s what he meant, right?

No no, gum would be perfection.

Heh, I thought the little banner at the bottom of the graphic said “Find your own TV and start watching now!” which seems like something that maybe Oprah would say.

If we do Parenthood, I think a valuable feature of those posts would be to have everyone comment with the exact time in each episode where they first cried.

I can’t decide whether this would be really easy to clean up, or basically impossible. Do you just vacuum it? Or do you have to involve some kind of wetness? I am not ready for kids.

The question mark really drives it home for me.
