Animals that live in hot areas like deserts tend to have larger ears to help them release extra body heat and stay cool during hot days. Also, their ears help them stay cute.
Usually I’ll post about kittens, puppies, or other fluffy baby animals on Mondays. I tend to think furriness directly equates to cuteness, but today I found something cute that isn’t furry at all. Gasp! I give you the cutest thing without fur (or legs): a baby dolphin getting a swimming lesson.
Mondays are the worst. What can make your Mondays significantly better? Cute puppies like this french bulldog in a sweater. See? Told you so.
It’s not quite a full costume, but here’s my cat with a bow around her neck.
I wanted to dye her purple, but that seemed like not the best idea. I don’t think kitty would be too happy with me.
I like my Music Mondays. It’s a necessary part of starting the work week. Listening to music at my desk; I find myself escaping to another place, and for a second I actually forget that it isn’t the weekend anymore. I may not be what you would call a die-hard music person that’s able to do a weekend-long event like Lollapalooza or Bonnaroo, but I did manage to go to the Virgin Mobile FreeFest this past Saturday. It’s September, and I’m totally okay with continuing to go to outdoor concerts and extend summer just a little bit longer.
Being an outdoor concert, it’s expected that there would be trees and animals. Freefest had both, except the animals were performing on stage and the trees were filled with lasers. Ah the great outdoors. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t understand what the deal is with music groups wearing animal mascot heads in their performances. Freefest was no exception to the furry-headed trend with performances by the Teddybears and Deadmau5. I just think my head would get hot and I’d probably topple over. I would much prefer glitter, face paint, and light shows.
Speaking of light shows, I ended FreeFest in the dance forest with Ghostland Observatory. I wish I could recreate the laser show they had during their performance. Since I can’t do it through words, here’s a clip of the show from Saturday. Enjoy!
Let’s face it. Mondays can be rough. What helps me get through Mondays? Videos I find on YouTube, of course. That’s why you should watch this episode of My Drunk Kitchen to help you get through the day. Ice cream anyone?
This is definitely my favorite performance of this season’s So You Think You Can Dance. Contestant Sasha and all-star Twitch performed a heartfelt hip-hop routine about a couple sitting down to breakfast. They’ve done this same morning routine for years, and it’s slowly taken a toll on their relationship. Sasha finally gets up, kicks back her chair, and jumps on the table. Twitch puts aside his newspaper, and the stage ignites. It’s about a couple rediscovering their love for each other. Watching the performance, I found myself overlooking the individual dance moves. I got lost in the story.
