With less than 12 hours remaining in 2005, it’s time for me to clean out this year's link closet where I store funny and bizarre sites that strike me as possessing some sort of je ne sais quoi special élan.
Thanks in general to my fellow ORblogs posters who led me to most of these links, yet now must remain specifically unthanked as I’ve lost track of the cyberspace bread crumb trail that led me to these gems.
Our journey into the funny and bizarre begins, of course, with cats…
--Whenever my feline mental illness starts to kick up and I begin to think, “Maybe it would be nice to have a cat again,” I head over to MyCatHatesYou dot com. A few minutes of browsing the cats that hate me restores my sanity.
The rule for today.
Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
New rule tomorrow.
--Portland blogger Chantel offers up a great riff in her Open Letter to My Cat #2. On the Open Letter front, see also “An open letter to the cat, who pushes glasses off the kitchen counter while we're trying to sleep.”
Moving on to sex and the Internet…
--This Galumpia Adult site is strangely fascinating, and not at all what you’d expect given its name. A notice on the home page offers a hint of what lies inside: “Warning: This site contains images.”
--I won’t reveal how I came across How to Accurately Measure Your Penis, except to say that this information wasn’t being sought by me at the time. Nonetheless, I chuckled my way through what is billed as “A Gay Man’s Guide to Real World Dimensions: Your dick size, a work of fact or fiction?” For both straights and gays, this has to be the definitive guide to the subject.
--Speaking of Fantasy vs. Reality, click on that link for a great expose of Internet poseurs such as Mr. Hilarity, Religious Zealot, The Tough Guy, Homophobe, Brainiac, Role Player, Lothario, The Dark Poet, and Cutie Pie. After reading it, I wondered into what category I fall, since I use my real name and persona in cyberspace.
--Only yesterday talented Chantel wrote "I'll Sleep When You're Dead," a funny tale of noisy sex-obsessed neighbors and thin walls.
Happy almost New Year.
I hope you have a more exciting evening than we’re about to experience, what with our traditional hosting of a vegetarian, alcohol-free potluck for people in my meditation group. When we start sharing tofu recipes, that’s when things really start getting wild.
