I should take this opportunity to mention that even after all these months I still visit Cute Overload almost every day. Marc does too, I got him sucked in somehow and I'll see him after work and he'll be like, "OHMIGOD YOU WON'T BELIEVE THE GUINEA PIG TODAY!" or sometimes he waits for me and we go at what's new there together.
gosplcovrsinger also has a cuteness hamster who wasn't really excited to be not sleeping, so I didn't hold her for very long, but it still made me think about cute overload a lot because of the very special relationship that the site has with hammies. there's a perfect video this week of a brocolli-eating hammie, and of course there's my all-time favorite entry in the world:
it sort of illustrates how I feel about grad school, to tell the truth.
