CROSBY SHOOTS AND SCORES!!! This is what it means to be a Hero. This is the stuff of Myth. This is the fulfillment of Legend. This is Arthurian in its cosmic Rightness. This is what Joseph Campbell was talking about when he said, “Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.” and “We have only […]

Drive-by Hotting: Homesick Edition

Friday, February 26th, 2010

You know what we need more of up in this place?  Scotsmen! Stand back, James McAvoy is about to bring the pasty. NOM.  That’s one tasty morsel of buttery shortbread. “There’s no place like home,  There’s no place like home, There’s no place like home….” *click, click, click* Come ON, dammit!  Stupid slippers. Maybe if […]

Calls for a visit from my lil friend.

Review-fer Two-fer

Or:  Leo DeCaprio & The Olympians: The Sanity Thief… The snow and such has been messing with my movie-screening schedule, which means that I’ve gone to the theater twice in less than a week…completely unheard of!

I lived to see the day

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

I really doubted that I would; but we are finally in possession of our new sofa! We ordered this thing on November 19.  I won’t trouble you by going over all of the many trials, tribulations, and delays, but suffice to say it was an enormous drag.  If it wasn’t for the amazing sales lady […]

Birthday Kitteh Has Birthday

Happy Birthday to my lil bud!  May your 13th be very lucky for you!

Weekend Wrapup

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Couple of tidbits before the weekend gets here: Saturday is Whistler’s birthday, so if you see him around give him a pinch to grow an inch! My new sofa (which we ordered in November!!!) was delivered yesterday.  Sheesh. Luckily, I still love it.  Pics to come. Don’t miss the Team Sidney vs the USA hockey […]

Rabbits are my favorite animal

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

The always-awesome Ms. Rabbit sent me the Canadian-edition of Sports Illustrated Olympic Preview (on which Sid was rawkin’ the cover)…finally got here yesterday! The content of the mag is pretty much the same, and the article about Sid (which made me cry, btw) was identical except for one…small…extra… Wait for it… Ready?  Hang on to […]

And they’re off

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Sid & MAF shove off to beautiful Vancouver today to start playing at the Olympics!  So exciting…it’s like they’re packing off to Summer Camp together.  You boys have a nice trip….don’t forget to write…and have a s’more for me!

Je t’adore

Happy Valentine’s Weekend   from all of us at TarsierJungle!   And now… a special Valentine for you all… Handcrafted by me with love and perversion.

Lovin from the Oven

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

The Uni reopened today, and BW had to attempt to go back to work.  If he makes it, he’ll probably turn around and come back because nobody else will be there.  Still, it will be nice to have a first-hand report about conditions in the Outside World. Still no effin’ mail.  That is my only […]

U of Pitt has been closed for THREE DAYS now!    BW won’t have to go to class tonight, whooo! I’m sure there is going to be behind-the-scenes hell to pay when this is over…the Pitt execs reaming out City of PGH execs for making them have to give out 3 free vacation days to […]

This place needs sprucing up

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

And nothing brightens up a room like a little Jude Law. Better!  Enjoy your snow day if ya got one…we did!  This is unbelievable.  The U of PGH has some message up on its website saying how their students’ and staff’s safety is their top concer.  HAAAAA! Translation:  The state threatened to fine their asses […]

No business like snow business

Monday, February 8th, 2010

I’m sure you all know that the Snowpocalypse ’10 hit PGH pretty hard.  It’s been awesome! I’ve been catching up on all sorts of movie and Northern Exposure viewing, and it made Nutella Day all the sweeter. Even more awesome: BW’s work was cancelled today!  The last time that happened was 17 GODDAMN YEARS ago!  […]

Nommy Holidays!

Happy World Nutella Day! In order to celebrate this day, you need exactly one thing:  a jar of Nutella.  Spoon optional. But if you really want to get fancy about it, you should make something out of the Nutella.  I found a recipe for Triple-Chip Nutella Cookies that I’ll be baking later today.  If they […]

*Entering Will Smith Mode* Aw, HELL yeah!  D’ats what I’m TALKIN ABOUT! *Leaving Will Smith Mode* Resolve to not root for Team Canada quickly melting away.  Anybody needs me, I’ll be standing outside the newsstand/magazine store, waiting for the delivery truck.

School House Rock On

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Do you need another reason to love Joseph Gordon Levitt?  Most likely not. BUT, if so, you can add this to your list:  JGL’s production company produced this cute and seriously awesome little School House Rock-style piece on the evils of the Supreme Court’s ban on broadcasting the Prop 8 trial. Check it out.

Fuck it, Dude. Let’s go bowling.
