Happy Birthday Tonya!

I want to take a moment and say happy 31st to my brunette Tonya, who I only met less than 2 years ago, but has become one of my favorite people on the planet. Thanks, T, for being so awesome, fun, generous, and understanding, and I hope 31 is the best year ever! Tangled webs!!

You guys remember last time I was NYC for my birthday, and I blogged about Tonya's roommate's cat, Pico? All 24lbs of Pico opened my bedroom door this morning and jumped on my bed. I thought it was Armageddon. I threw her (actually, scooted her) into the hall and she glared at me as though she could destroy me with her eyes. She probably can. I'm scared to leave the room now. Anyway, in case you didn't believe me:


So, you all know how I feel about quizzes, and also how I feel about procrastinating, and especially how I like to use quizzes for procrastinating. I got this one from a friend of a friend, Krysten, and hope it will keep me in my bed and away from work and laundry for a least an hour. *sigh*
