Ferris Mewler: “What in the shit are you people doing?”

med cleaning dorothy barker

 ************

And now, the weekly wrap-up of awesomeness:

shitidid

Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):

Shit-you-may-or-may-not-want-to-see:

Shit you should buy or steal because it’s awesome:  

This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by the bad-asses behind the Unpodcast – the business show for the fed-up.  I recommend starting with this one, about the importance of paying your creatives rather than ripping them off by asking them to work for free or this one about when it’s right to name and shame people. I recommend.  Go check it out right now.

  20. Regarding the wine drinking unicorn, I don’t mean for this to sound weird and inappropriate, but I couldn’t help but imagine the unicorn when it’s not holding a wine bottle. The unicorn is flat on his (or her) back, legs in the air and mouth wide opent. I DON’T MEAN TO IMAGINE UNICORNS IN A SEXUAL WAY, IT JUST HAPPENED! In any case, thanks for sharing Jenny…

    That unicorn looks like how I feel this weekend.
    And then I saw the matching salt and pepper shakers and now I’m questioning all of my previous decorating decisions. Maybe I’ll spend more time in the kitchen if it looks like a magical kingdom full of mythical creatures, and I’m drinking wine. Lots of wine.

  48. I have a cat (part Maine Coon) that comes into the bathroom while we’re bathing the dogs and hangs around until he gets a bath too. While he’s getting the bath, he just stands there and looks like we are disgusting him…but he doesn’t fight it and freaking ASKS for it. He weighs 18 pounds, so you’d know it if he wanted no part of it.
    On the other hand, our other cat (4 1/2 pounds of fury) is like trying to bathe a chainsaw while it’s running.

  53. I have a friend who recently posted on Facebook that she was excited to learn that she was related, 7th cousin-style, to Leonardo DiCaprio. Except she accidentally misspelled his name Leonardo DiCarprio. My very first thought was, “If Jenny ever gets a goldfish, she should totally name it Leonardo DiCarprio.” My second thought was, “Wait, are goldfish really carp?” So I asked Google, and guess what? They totally are. Then I thought, “I think maybe I’m reading The Blogess too much…but maybe that’s okay because I’m pretty sure Jenny Lawson is my spirit animal.”
