Random Thursday: Random Awesome

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content

 Need a Birthday Cake for a Hoopy Frood?

Don’t panic.

You’re welcome.

Physics Pwn

Schrodinger gets pawnd

Hairballs may not have mass, but they do have squish . . .

(Thanks, Paula!)
