Cute Me

Cute.jpg I’ve always remembered this girl’s face. This picture is from Cute Overload, and the woman who does that site commented that this girl’s expression is the epitome of the Cute Overload audience.

I probably don’t make that face anymore, but on the inside I am that girl. Every day I go to Cute Overload. When I’m out and about I’m looking in the window of a pet store somewhere, or checking out the cats at Petco after visiting the Greenmarket at Union Square. I love the cute, but it’s also a painful experience, as this girl’s face attests. Because you know you cannot own every kitten, puppy, or cute baby thing you see. So you can only stare longingly at the cute palm-sized puppy and pine, “Oh, he is so cute and I cannot have heem. Now that I have seen heem, how can I live without heem?? Life is too cruel.”

In other news: Gonzales finally resigned. Why he wasn’t freaking FIRED, except why even bring that up. I know why.

  1. I go to that Union Square Petco, too, and I talk to the cats in a voice that goes with that girl’s expression. The volunteers all look at me like, “Enough of the oooh-ing and ahhh-ing, lady. Just put some money into the can!”
