The December Calendar

I've been filling up my December calendar old lady-style, with parties, church events, and arrivals and departures, as well as a couple of dentist appointments. Matt Shirley did it from a guy's point of view, which is altogether different -but refreshingly honest.

In Loving Memory of the Most Amazing Cat On the Planet

Lil Bub was a polydactyl dwarf cat with multiple genetic anomalies born in 2011 to a feral mother. She became an internet star due to her unique look and her easygoing disposition. Through live and television appearances and even a genetic study, her human, Mike Bridavsky, fiercely protected Lil Bub from threats to her health and well-being. After suffering from a persistent bone infection, Lil Bub passed away last weekend. She'll be waiting for Bridavsky at the rainbow bridge.

Dear Baby Yoda: A Love Song

The adorable Baby Yoda has taken over the internet, and his/her fandom is not limited to Disney+ subscribers. I haven't seen The Mandolorian, and I feel like I know Baby Yoda as well as anyone. Ice2Ice adapted the Lin-Manuel Miranda song "Dear Theodosia" from Hamilton and made it a lullaby/love song about Baby Yoda. It's clever and they perform it well, but best of all, we get clips of the baby in the video. (via Geeks Are Sexy)


One of the things that's necessary to become proficient in living both on the net and in the real world is the ability to distinguish who would be an appropriate person to share things with. Yes, you can experiment to see who would like it, but meanwhile, don't interrupt while they are washing the dishes you should have been helping with. This is the latest comic from Chris Hallbeck at Maximumble.

Remember back in 2015, two llamas escaped and ran through Sun City, Arizona? Whether do recall it or not, you'll enjoy watching the chase from a helicopter's point of view with appropriate music. (via a comment at Boing Boing)

An Honest Trailer for It Chapter Two

Since the sequel to It, It Chapter Two, is coming to home video next week, it's time for an Honest Trailer. The movie was profitable, but suffered from high expectations. It turns out that a scary clown menacing adults is not as terrifying as a scary clown menacing children. And since that was exactly the problem with the 1990 TV miniseries, you'd have thought that someone might have suggested a change.
