the lolcat fever. i has it.

The most significant Internet development of 2007 is undoubtedly the explosion of putting humorous captions on pictures of cats which has come to be known as lolcats. If you have no idea what I’m talking about see this post that really kicked off the lolcat phenomenon. xkcd even acknowledged the lolcat phenomenon with this comic. There’s no point trying to make sense of it. Either you think it’s funny or you don’t. It does help to be a geek and have an odd sense of humor. Which category do you put yourself in: show me the kittehs, this is freaking retarded or I don’t get it? Here are some past phenomenons I enjoyed if you happened to miss them:

Wild Animal Park visit

Took a trip down to San Diego over Labor Day weekend and needed to entertain ourselves during the day so we thought it would be fun to go to the Wild Animal Park. Got there in the morning but it quickly became super duper hot, but I still managed to get some decent shots. Click the lion for the gallery.

Visit from Leaf Cat

Denise will probably be the only person that finds this interesting, but Leaf Cat paid Sarah and me a visit the other night. For the rest of you, Denise named the neighborhood cat “Leaf Cat” because she saw it walking around the condo complex with a leaf in its mouth. She decided she wanted to stop by, take a tour of the place, get some noggin scratching and then take off. Good times.


Backyard Creepy Crawly Pics

Found these two guys hanging out under the patio furniture today, took pictures before they got torched with BBQ lighter.

Got your good old Black Widow (Latrodectus hesperus)

And one I’ve never seen before, after a little research it seems to be bold jumping spider (Phidippus audax), great markings.
