Miss Cellania's Links

This will be the last links list for a while. I am on vacation, and probably far away as you read this. There will still be videos, funny pictures, and the occasional joke here at Miss Cellania until I get back, because I've worked my butt off to pre-schedule some good stuff for you. But It may get a bit thin, as I will be gone until about Fathers Day. It's my first vacation road trip in years, so the family is making a big long deal about it. Several thousand miles in a pickup truck with two teenagers (yay). Still, I am having a good time and will let you know how it went when I return. Meanwhile, here's a few links.

The Princess



Matt Clarke has started a YouTube series called Convos With My 2 Year Old. In it, he recreates conversations with his daughter Coco. I'm sure the words were exactly the same, but common sense tells me that the original wasn't nearly as creepy as it seems when Matt plays the part. Look at that adorable little girl -who wouldn't want to play the princess for her? (via Viral Viral Videos)

Why You Can't Outrun a Cheetah



Zero to 60 in three seconds! The "features" of a cheetah are presented in this video in the manner of new model of sports car. Everything that makes a cheetah different from other cats is about the acceleration. One fact that floored me: one stride of a cheetah can be 25 feet long. Imagine tracking a cat like that -you'd never know which way to look for the next paw print! (via Viral Viral Videos)
