Argh.

Life sort of sucks this week.  Victor’s been in the hospital for a few days because of a staph infection in his broken arm and they have no idea when he’ll be released so life here is weird because when Victor’s sick I have to be the grown-up and it’s fucking exhausting. And whenever I’m home I hear his voice echoing in my head, saying “Really? Is that where your shoes belong?  In the middle of the hall?”  and “No, cat’s can’t eat corndogs.  GO TO THE GODDAM GROCERY STORE” and  “WHY DO YOU EVEN HAVE A CLOSET IF YOU’RE NEVER GOING TO USE IT?  DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A CLOSET?  You don’t, do you?  Point it out to me.  Point to where your closet is.  Exactly.  You have no idea.”

I miss him.

But until things get back to normal I am totally going to phone it in with a series of youtube videos that make me laugh hysterically even when I want to stab people in the face with a pointy bird.  And even if you’ve seen them before they’re awesome.  Promise.

From the creator of “Honey Badger don’t give a shit” comes:

The miracle of the Daffy Jesus Christ Lizard.

Water Chevrotains are adorable.

The majestic lion.

The nasty and disgusting world of vampire bats

The gross and disgusting American Bullfrog

The great white sea monster

The fantastic zebras

The slowass sloth

Gang Flamingo Vs. Team Baboon

    but i don’t even HAVE a fucking closet in our bedroom, so he can shove that right up his ass.

    I’m sorry you not only have to be the grown up [which is fucking ridiculous, right?], but also that you have to be the grown up because Victor is in the hospital, which makes being the grown up THAT MUCH worse and harder.

    Personally? I think you can leave your shoes in the hall, except that if I left my shoes in the hall, I’d trip over them in the middle of the night when I’d go to the kitchen to get the big knife to keep under my pillow because the husband isn’t there to protect me from ghosts or aliens. Although I guess the knife wouldn’t really help with the ghost.

    Stupid staph infections.

    She reluctantly pointed out that 1. she couldn’t drive yet and 2. at 14 she can only earn a part time wage at Publix bagging groceries.

    I told her to stop complaining and grow up a bit. Then I shouted “The floor is LAVA!” And jumped on a chair. At that point she looked at me and told me not to worry because clearly she is already the adult. Then she left me on the chair and did HOMEWORK!

  134. Both you and Victor totally need to have a series of wter pistols on hand to squirt the annoyingly incompetent nurses (and you know they exist) whenever they come into the room to wake Victor up while when he’s resting (because they enjoy this).
    You can also use the water pistols to squirt the doctor’s whenever they don’t answer your questions truthfully or with enough detail.
    This will make Victor’s hospital stay so much nicer and quicker, I promise.
    On the flip side of that is you need to suck up to the nice nurses because they will be the ones keeping Victor alive.

    I hope he gets better soon. BUY THOSE DAMN WATERPISTOLS NOW.
