Epic Reader Comments Of The Week And Some Cats In Space

This week is full of reminiscing about the holidays and family – and also what a pain in the ass people are this time of year. Is it really only the first week of December? Does it even seem possible that we have almost an entire month of the “holiday season” ahead of us? For some reason I’m already burnt out on it and I haven’t even brought a tree home yet. Or any presents.

Our readers are wise. I want to needlepoint some of these on a pillow – I really do. I threw in some cats in space because, Happy Holidays!

Roberta 8 Ways To Kill Christmas With Childproofing

This interaction on the same childproofing post killed me:

ktbay …If a Christmas tree is what takes the kid out, then maybe she wasn’t meant for this life.

Allyson_et_al That’s NOT funny!!!! My friend’s sister’s husband’s cousin’s precious snowflake was crushed by a falling Christmas tree when she was 12 and her parents thought it would finally be safe to put one up. She had never seen one before (because her parents LOVED her), and didn’t know not to climb it. Clearly you don’t love your child! You probably don’t even have her car seat properly installed!!

ktbay You’re right. I can’t stand her already and she hasn’t even been born. I’ve only given up all the wonderful things in life for the last 33 weeks so I can come off as some kind of martyr, but I secretly have plans to throw her into the the Thunderdome. At this point I don’t even have her car seat installed because I like to live on the wild side. But when I do, it’s totally going in the front seat, so I can easily pass her a joint.

Perhaps this one needs some context:

“My best friend made my baby disappear for an afternoon. It was the best gift, ever. At the time, I didn’t care if she fed my daughter beer and gave her cigarettes*, I was so grateful to have time with just my husband.

*Unless it was crappy beer. No one should start a baby on Miller Lite.”

    What the ever-loving-fuck is that Nicolas Cage thing? You have just ruined cats for me. THANKS A LOT.

      I’ve never seen something so weird – I HAD TO.

    • FaintlyXMacabre

      you’ve clearly never seen the Nicolas Cage Morphsuit.http://www.neatorama.com/2013/10/25/Nicholas-Cage-Morphsuits/#!pb7Ju Sorry not sorry.

      I have an irrational hate-on for Nicolas Cage.

    • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

      It’s not irrational. He’s awful.

      I’m assuming the Nicolas Cage pic is the one my browser won’t load. It got as far as the ears and just went “Fuck no.”

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      you think that’s weird?
      Type Cats with boobs into youtube.
      Not only is it creepy in a fascinating way but the little narrative is…eerily catchy…

    The ktbaby/Allyson discussion on childproofing Christmas had me rolling then and gave me side-stitches again when I read it here. I lost it at the middle comment, and die every time I get to “so I can pass her a joint”.

  • ktbay

    I feel like this is my greatest accomplishment so far in my life. It helps that Kitty Cat Nick Cage is here too.

  • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

    These space cats are amazing, and the reader comments are always amazing

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      I’d actually consider getting one or two done on a couch cushion lol

  • NicknamesAreDull

    Holy cow! I was too busy making Reinbeers and missed this. Warm fuzzies, y’all.

  • gothicgaelicgirl

    I am most glad you appreciated my rage. =)
