This viral video of a colorblind dude seeing full-spectrum color for the first time is really great. His freak-out and giddiness over post-it notes and gaudy packaging completely charmed me.
We live in a freaking paradise, it’s so great that technology can help people see the world that so many of us take for granted.
(thank you to everyone who tipped me. I’m really moved.)
I totally want to lose something on KLM just to get a visit!
I must, Must, MUST find this store. It has everything!
Now that’s how you negotiate a settlement.

And it is not just puppies, there is also a monkey.

Longtime readers know that I am firmly on Team Dog, and in fact my greatest wish is to come back as my own dog (it makes sense to me). I’ve long said that if you want to become a better person, adopt a dog, preferably from an animal shelter.
Anyway, today is the best day of the year—National Puppy Day.
Dogs are our better angels, and they love us in spite of ourselves.
I laughed out loud. But in my defense, dogs driving a car in the suburbs!

Today is UberKITTENS:
TODAY – UBER IS DELIVERING KITTENS ON DEMAND IN 7 CITIES [Austin, Chicago, DC, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Seattle]!
HOW IT WORKS:
- Open your Uber app between 12 pm & 4 pm.
- Request the “KITTENS” option in your app. In NYC or DC? Enter promo code kittensnyc or kittensdc to unlock the option in your app.
- Once the kittens arrive, you and your friends will get to enjoy 15 minutes of kitten cuteness! PRO TIP: Make sure to have an enclosed space purrrfect for playtime! In New York City, kittens can only be delivered to offices.
- The best part? In most cities, kittens are eligible for adoption.
Regular readers know that I am firmly a member of Team Dog, but that doesn’t mean I am anti-cat; cats just don’t happen to be dogs. Cats make terrific pets, and if you are so inclined, UberKITTEN is a wonderful way to donate $30 to the SPCA and get your kitten-on, and perhaps find the little furball of your dreams.
