miami cats are now safe again.

He looks normal, but he's sick.

He looks normal, but he's sick.

The cats of Miami can peacefully take cat naps again, now that 18-year-old cat killer suspect Tyler Haines Weinman has been caught.  Weinman was arrested and charged for the 19 serial cat killings that have been plaguing the area.  What’s even worse is that the cats were mutilated as well.  There have been 34 cat deaths in the area, but police were only allowed to connect 19 to serial killings.  They are looking into the matter to see if there are accomplices.

I don’t even understand how a human being can do something like this.  Remember Joseph Petcka? Well I think Tyler Haines Weinman has done more than enough to  join him in the ranks of huge jerkfaces.  According to the story on CNN,  if he gets convicted on all counts, Weinman could face up to 158 years in state prison.  Think that’s a little harsh?  I don’t.  And we all know he won’t end up serving the full term anyway.

“The cruelty of these crimes were horrific for the animal victims, but there were many human victims as well,” Mayor Paul Vrooman said.

“Let’s not forget the children and the families who found their pets mutilated. These awful scenes inflicted a human toll.”

I’m glad this monster has been caught.

youtube clip of today: cat yodeling.

Cat people are SO WEIRD.  But let’s face it, sometimes really weird can be funny.  Happy Friday/start of a three day weekend, y’all!

hate cats, but this is adorable.

Well, I guess they are kittens, not cats.  THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.  Anyway, I was shown this video over the weekend and I’ve been dying to post it.  (Weekend away=no blogging).  “Kittens inspired by kittens” is a masterpiece!  Enjoy!

youtube clip of today: super chameleon!

Sooooo my landlord said I couldn’t have a cat or dog…but he didn’t say anything about chameleons!  HOW DOES IT DO THAT?  (And here is where I answer my own question so that you don’t have to take the time to Google it yourself…click the link)  I also would like to have multiple pairs of Ray-Bans.

Oh and guess what song is stuck in my head now?

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon
You come and go
You come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dream
Red, gold and green
Red, gold and green…

quirky news for a sunday afternoon.

I’m on a blogging rampage.  Here’s the weird stuff I’ve found on Al Gore’s invention today…

  • Let’s talk about squirrels.  Rats with fluffy tails.  True story: I was once attacked my squirrels by the Vietnam Memorial in DC.  They wanted our snack foods and opened our backpacks.  It was terrifying.  Anyway, the science wonder children at UC Davis have found the solution to their squirrel overpopulation problem– birth control for squirrels.  It’s true.

    “This new birth control method may potentially help control squirrels or other species, such as white tailed deer,” said Sara Krause, a doctoral student in ecology who designed the plan.

    “If we can test a birth control method and find it safe and effective, there’s a possibility of it being a breakthrough method in both urban and suburban areas,” she said.

    I’m sure the Christians would rather they train the squirrels about natural family planning.

  • On to the Big O.  Nope not that kind. (Geeeeeez.  Parents read this blog!)  No, not Obama. (Good guess though.) I’m actually talking about Oprah.  The lady’s got it going on.  There are talks that O might not renew her talk show in 2011!  THE HORROR.  That gives us just three short years left with her.  TiVO that shiz now, people.  Or don’t, because it will run more in syndication than the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.  Oprah’s getting her own TV network.  Boringly called the Oprah Winfrey Network, or hilariously and appropriately nicknamed, OWN.  Oprah owns your soul.  One might go so far as to say she PWNS you.
  • This is a good one!  There was a brawl in Jerusalem today.  Sadly, that alone means nothing.  But the devil is in the details.  IT WAS BETWEEN MONKS.  (Get it?  Devil in the details?  Monks? Religion?  Uhh…) Yes, monks.  Rival monks!  The Armenian monks and the Greek monks.  This is better than West Side Story. Snap, snap, snap.  The cops had to come break it up!  Apparently these fights happen a lot.  Oh, and when you go to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, make sure you wear your neutral gang colors.  FYI the Armenians wear pink and red and the Greeks wear black.  From the AP:

    The brawling began during a procession of Armenian clergymen commemorating the 4th-century discovery of the cross believed to have been used to crucify Jesus.

    The Greeks objected to the march without one of their monks present, fearing that otherwise, the procession would subvert their own claim to the Edicule — the ancient structure built on what is believed to be the tomb of Jesus — and give the Armenians a claim to the site.

    The Armenians refused, and when they tried to march the Greek Orthodox monks blocked their way, sparking the brawl.

  • Illinois is hoping for a tourism bump due to Barack’s win.  Really?  Well alright.  Walsh, I’ll see you soon.
  • Ohhh the Onion.  Always makes me chuckle.  I can totally picture this story on Fox though.

i’m legit terrified of spiders now.

So my friends all know that I’m nature girl–yeah, it’s weird.  My envrionmentally friendly mom put me in a lot of nature classes growing up.  What of it? NATUUUUUUUUUURE!  GOULET!

Knowing that I LOVE nature, imagine my reaction when I saw this headline, and this picture:

Giant spider snapped eating bird in backyard near Cairns

Yup.  I freaked the eff out.  This will no doubt appear in my nightmares.

Despite my fear of spiders, I went to a school where the mascot was a spider.  SPIDERS EVERYWHERE ON EVERYTHING.  AHHH.  Yes, I am a proud Richmond Spider.  And devastated that I will not be able to make it to Homecoming this weekend.  Miss me.  GO SPIDERS!  (But only the nice ones.  That go to Richmond.)

youtube clip of today: segway chimp.

Watch as much of this as you can handle– Japanese television is wacky.  I wish I knew what was going on, but somehow not knowing makes it even funnier.
