Oh man, you guys. I don’t know what it is, but I am suffering from total and complete blogger’s block today.
It’s like my brain is just…not…functioning.
Uhhhh. Has anybody been watching good TV lately? Mike and I have been working on Eureka, Arrested Development, and Luther, which probably tells you all you need to know about how much time we spend watching TV. Whatever, TV is great.
Oh, we’ve also been slowly watching Azumanga Daioh whenever we’re in the mood, which is maybe why I’m feeling like such a Bonkler today?
(If you’re at least a little familiar with anime, you probably know Azumanga Daioh, but if not, this should give you the right idea.)
Oh! And this, my new kiwi pin, was an awesome gift from Tia. She gave one to each of her bridespeople, and I think we were all happy with our respective animals. There was a whale, an owl, a sparrow-type generic birdie, and my kiwi. I wore mine at the wedding, and one of Braden’s family members tried to argue with me that kiwis are extinct. I’m not going to laugh, though; recently I discovered that sometime between my childhood and now, someone decided that pandas are, in fact, true bears, which threw me for a bit of a loop. When it’s repeated as fact that pandas are non-bear bears for much of your childhood, you can develop a bit of a mental block to new information regarding that “fact,” so who am I to look askance at someone who is laboring under misinformation about kiwis?
(Hmm. Writer’s block to Azumanga Daioh to panda bears. I really am a true Bonkler.)
