At the risk and expense of sounding ENTIRELY INSANE I have decided to post what my newest favorite website is.
I trust that I have established some credibility with you readers over the last five months. Therefore, trust me I will destroy it when I tell you to go to www.icanhascheezburger.com.
Loving cats helps. A lot. Cat haters need not click on the above link.
I’m aware that loving a website featuring cat pictures puts me on the fast track to being that old lady who lives with 99 cats in the country.

I don’t know how the website grew from there, but it surely did. There are 100+ pages of “lolcat” pictures. The pictures are accompanied by “lolspeak” captions.

It took me by surprise that I had any patience for “lolspeak.” I’m particular about language. Sometimes I correct people while they’re speaking…yes, I’m that girl who corrects your English mid-sentence. Sorry about that, but if you’re not a lolcat you really shouldn’t be speaking like one.
Below are my favorite lolcats to date. Feel free to leave sarcastic comments on this blog entry. I know I’m asking for it, and I love it:
