    How self absorbed am I that I thought the “via AP” above meant I sent in the link – and I was going to say “huh, I don’t remember sending in that link but if it’s a good one, sure, I’ll take credit.”

        I don’t know why it’s upside down. But the balls look the same upside down so it’s all good.

        He’s got the cutest balls. They remind me of ripe cherry tomatoes. His brother has only one ball, the other ball never descended. The one he has is little and shriveled and reminds me of a cran-raisin. I think I’m going to eat a salad for lunch.

        Also I should stop talking about Moose’s balls. It’s disrespectful to Moose Pie.

      My fat cat has unusually large balls – he and Moose should start a support group! Or a club. Maybe the Max and Moose Big Ballz Club?

    Read the CNN article! I swear it’s interesting, especially if you love to hate on millenials.

    The pants-less wine-thief must be Ramona! I mean, how many mid-30s, pants-less drunkies who prefer wine can there be? On second thought, don’t answer that.

    Okay and about the hangry article – I can be a monster when I’m hungry. I have had a few epic breakdowns about things I think are real problems in my life until I eat food and then I’m just left embarrassed in a pile of shame.

    Also, Colin gets really irrationally irritated when he’s sleepy. Like turns into a 4 year old, I swear I’ve seen him pout before about having to stay up past his bed time (I’m remembering one time we went to dinner after kickball and we left at 10 instead of 9:30, and you would have thought I stopped the waiter from giving us our check in a reasonable manner on purpose).

      Oh goodness “hangry” arguments. I can’t even count the number of times we’ve squabbled over the dumbest shit because we needed food. One of the most ridiculous things we argue about when hangry is where/what to eat.

      I have low blood sugar and so many fights happen because my blood sugar is low and I just need to eat. I get so grumpy and irritable. It’s embarrassing afterwards. I don’t really need to test it that much anymore, I just figure it out based on my moods. Sometimes, he’ll try to tell me to eat something and I get all pissy…until I do eat something.

      We stopped fighting on weekend mornings once we started asking each other about food. If I know it will be a while before we’re going to eat, I’ll eat a piece a fruit or something. And if Othello gets up early, he’s started at least getting his coffee rather than waiting for me to get up. It’s saved us SO many arguments.

      Yeah Fabello get insane when he’s hungry, & I am just not like that so it took me forever it take it seriously (I was like, “you were that mad because you were HUNGRY? bullshiiiit”) but then I realized it was a “thing”. I was able to catch him like once, he started responding crankily to me in the car so I reached into my purse & found this chocolate mint candy shit & just handed it to him. He eats it, & then a minute or whatever later is like, “thanks, I was starting to get hangry”. Wtf, haha.

    Re: the girls hit on guys thing- I actually saw a girl do the club thing once, and not even in a proper club- just a dive bar with a dance floor- and not even on the floor! Poor guy was waiting for his fiance to show up and kept trying to get away. The girl actually got thrown out for the behavior which was gratifying to some extent- this particular bar is in general pretty good about policing aggressive guys, so it’s nice to know it goes both ways.
