Why doesn't this happen to me?!

So... this woman in North Carolina goes to her local Goodwill store, and finds this large (rather unimpressive) painting on canvas. She paints cats... cats... so she buys the canvas painting for $9.99 with the intention of painting over it (a cat, of course). Long story short... a few months later, she ends up selling the painting (an original "Vertical Diamond" by Ilya Bolotowsky) for $27,000!!!

That will buy her a lot of canvases... for a lot more cats.

What a COLORFUL Labor Day weekend!

So, how did you spend your Labor Day weekend? I got the rare chance to get together with (almost) all of my best girl friends for a mini roadtrip to New Jersey... for THE COLOR RUN! What is this "run" that I actually sound EXCITED about? Well.. only the "happiest 5k on the planet!" It's a 5k (3.1 mile) run/walk that has already visited several cities across the US where participants start out wearing all white and end up looking like a rainbow threw up all over them! And that's a GOOD thing!

The "paint" used to douse the runners/walkers is actually a powder... sort of like cornstarch but much more exciting. At the 1k, 2k, 3k and 4k markers you run through a slew of volunteers attacking you with the powder in orange, blue, yellow and pink! And then you get to the end and have a sort of color explosion party. Everyone gets their own packs of color - green, blue, red - and you get to throw it around in a crowd of other color runners while the DJ spins some dance tunes. It was not only the happiest 5k on the planet but also one of the coolest parties I've ever been to.

I know I will be color running again as soon as possible, and you should, too! You don't need to be a runner to do it, and it's a great way to get outside and be active with friends and/or family. Check it all out here (and watch their official Color Run video to get yourself super pumped about it): https://www.thecolorrun.com

Road Rage.. Satisfaction?

Okay... I know road rage is wrong. I do. That doesn't mean I don't get mild road rage on occasion. Or more than mild. And more often than that. Anyway... I'm pretty sure we've all been angry with another driver on the road at SOME point in our lives. So... maybe it's wrong, but I can't help but get a little satisfaction out of one driver's road rage revenge in Russia... watch and see for yourself. Then let me know if I'm a terrible person or if you laughed out loud, too... :)

Crazy cat ladies unite!


It's official. Crazy cat ladies (and men) can now get even closer to their favorite felines!

Introducing... YOU VS CAT on your iPad or smartphone! You read that right - you can now download an app from Purina that allows you to play games with your cat. Pit your skills against kitty's in this riveting game to see who's quicker at catching the little electronic fishies! If you guessed humans still have the upper hand... you'd be wrong. According to the website, currently we're trailing our feline friends 5,475,820 points to 4,718,510. 

Shame, humans.

So, what's the consensus? Have we gone a little too crazy with our pets? I don't think so. Then again, I took a Christmas card photoshoot of my bunny wearing a Santa hat. So........

Check out YOU VS CAT here.
