I'd seen this place on the news so often... it always looked like such a wonderful place for cats.
PETA is a terrible organization. They've raided my school before, and now they've raided Caboodle Ranch... I sure hope they don't get to the Cat House on the Kings. :/
Evidently, IDW will be publishing a Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover? I... what?
I wonder if this will force David Tennant to actually read a Star Trek comic. >:3
Secondly, the schmoopy thing.
I guess I've never said it, and possibly because of all of the idiotic heart-shaped crap that's floating around this weekend due to The Holiday That Shall Not Be Named, but:
I love every single one of you.
Wait, no, not like that, you weirdos.
But, you know. You're all awesome. And I just felt I had to say it. <3
ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.Via Tumblr
Because Monday was a holiday, our school made Tuesday into a Monday schedule. So, when these here kiffies got up on Wednesday, they were working on a Tuesday schedule.
I got up early to go to the wrong class, then panicked because it was wrong, forgot important paperwork that I needed for a meeting, and then forgot about the SOPA blackout and logged on for the briefest of time before it clicked that, yes, it was Wednesday, and I logged back off in disgust. No nets for kiffies!
BTW, (willingly) doing without the tubes? Torture.
I MISSED YOU INTERTUBES.
