Especially that last bit.

I resolve, as always, to do all things better in the New Year. My favorite wordsmith puts it all quite well.

A wish, a toast, a statement. See you on the other side, the lot of you.

Aquatic Pal Val, Moi, Aquatic Cousin 1.

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art-- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."


"I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."


"To absent friends, lost loves old gods and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due."

-Neil Gaiman (brought to you by AC2)

Our Lord & Savior, Old Gregg

In honor of Christmas, the Aquatic Cousins offer you the following:

A Very Bad Cat Christmas!

Merry Happy Tra-la-la to you and yours- whether yours is a very Bad Cat, a very Floofy Cat, your terrifying and/or loving family or a strange woman next to you at the grocery store making chicken noises while choosing eggs*. Also if you don't celebrate Christmas at all, just use it as an excuse to drink.


*This actually happened to me, today.

We are good at lots of things...

Merry whatever you're having from the Aquatic CAZZINES!
(and Valerie)

Here are your holiday trends for 2010 direct from us to you:
1) Hair Tinsel! I am rocking some gold strands right now!
It is fun and festive for the Holidays! You decorate a tree, how about your head (see how I write in red to make you feel more christmas cheer) ?
2) Being de-friended by family members on Facebook! That is what it is all about kids, being with loved ones and celebrating the birth of our savior Old Gregg.
3) The previously mentioned (see post below) Cat Patty Cake video!
4) Old School anthems of female empowerment a la Salt N Pepa!
5) The always adorable Christmas Trolls, I recently discovered that I own one much to my delight!
6) Last but not least, getting hammered with your parents while wearing an adorable Xmas Sweater!

* Cazzine aka Cousin as spelled by seven year old me!

Patticake Cats: I invented it. I started it.

I will never stop watching this video because it is hilarious. Make sure you're watching it with the sound on- the commentary is what makes it. Whoever made this is my hero for all of time and space (right behind Captain Tightpants, that is). Thanks be to Aquatic Friend Christine for this and may all of the Patticake Cats in the world help her through 2L finals at the schoolings of law that she undertakes.
