Remote Confusion

So I was looking at funny images online, and I came across this.

Labelled remotes with tape over certain buttons

The Dog Igloo

You see a lot of unusual things in life, sometimes in startling contrast to the otherwise normal surroundings.
In example, a scene from staring out the front window one afternoon. A dog igloo stepped into view, heading down the sidewalk as though this was normal behavior for an inanimate object.
"A dog igloo just walked by." I said.
My aunt, of course, was confused by this random sentence, describing such a random event. My mother then explained that a woman went past, carrying a dog igloo over her so she just looked like a doghouse with legs.
Living in the city is going to be fun. There'll never be a dull moment again.

Social Media

"What's on your mind?" Facebook asks me every time I visit the website.

Well, I'm on Facebook. I rejoined social media to better keep in contact with people, especially since I was moving away from most of the people I know. I look at people's posts, comment on things, occasionally chat online with people.

What is Facebook to us? Sure, it's a good way to keep connected with people. It's a way of sharing thoughts and experiences. But let me plunge deeper. Sure, we can read heart-warming or funny stories, see posts of what people have been up to.

But it's not enough.

The Never-ending Name

So learning new things is fun. Awhile back, I saw an unbelievably long word, and I'm sure the guy who typed it was laughing maniacally when he shared it with the online world. Now what is this word, you might ask? Certainly it couldn't be that long.
All right, then, here it is: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

How to Answer a Phone

Ever have the phone ring at a really inopportune time? Like, say, when you're lying in bed in the morning, and don't want to get up? Or perhaps when you have two dogs on your lap, pinning you down for all eternity? Bonus points if they're sleeping (about 97% of the time) and you don't want to disturb them.
Here is an accurate depiction of what happens when the phone rings.

Yours, Mine, and Meows

"There's no more 'mine' and there's no more 'yours'. From now on, everyone and everything is 'ours'." (from the film 'Yours, Mine and Ours')

I know a cat who believes in such a philosophy.

"Are you sure you'll be able to finish that?"
"Let me just cannonball onto the table." (aren't cats supposed to be graceful?)
"Ooh, this looks interesting."
"Why does she keep putting her hand between me and the food?"
"If you want, I can clean that plate for you."
"Foolish human, she thinks the food and the plate belong to her."

Now, if anyone says that it's only dogs who stare longingly at your food, and might try to 'help' you eat it, I'm going to laugh. And the problem with cats is, they can jump far and reach all the high places... like the dining table, for instance.

Adulting

As kids, we imagine what it would be like to be an adult, and the expectations are different from reality.We find ourselves thinking, "I'm not an adult! I'm still too immature and irresponsible and clueless to be an adult!" We also realize this wasn't what we signed up for. This is hard, and more demanding than we had anticipated. All those daydreams about being a grown-up were silly, impossible fantasies.
Below are some of the realities we face when we grow up and find ourselves forced to act like an adult.
