I'm a winner!

Actually, I'm a total LOSER because I should have posted this weeks ago. Actually MONTHS -- it's crazy the way I've lost track of time. I can't believe it's almost April! But never fear -- I HAVE been Accomplishing Great Things, as well as spending a lot of time on my butt on the couch. I believe in a balanced lifestyle.

Anyway, one of my favorite blogs, The Girl Can't Help It (Go HERE!) had a giveaway, and I won! When it was announced, I shrieked with glee and read this part out loud to my boyfriend: "Your house just got a little bit tackier, and I couldn't be prouder that I had a part in it."

"Hmmm," he said. "Did you tell her our house is already tacky, and that you do a fine job of that all by yourself?" Touche, darling.

But WHATEVER! It's an Accomplishment! I won something! I won a KITTY PLANTER!

Behold:
Kitty Planter!

Isn't it cute? Isn't it sweet?

Wait. Look closer.

I'm a winner!!!

Look at its eyes. Go ahead. Just TRY to stare deeply into them.

I'm a winner!!!

You CAN'T. They are limpid pools of NOTHING. They aren't even evil -- they are simply not there, like something straight outta Flannery O'Connor or something. Or a horror movie. Or, well, the blogosphere.

In fact, this kitty reminds me of another kitty:
kitty
Louis Wain's schizophrenic cat

And this makes me love it EVEN MORE.

Many thanks to the fabulous Kim, and I promise -- more Accomplishments coming your way soon. But seriously... i don't know if I could ever top Dead-Eyed Cat.

What, that isn't fabulous? Ehhh, that's what Flickr's for. And I'll get back to that soon, too!

What are you going to plant?

The Cat of Hell invades your living room, eating your plants and having no regrets doing so.

It's like I always never say: The tackier the house, the closer to jebus. Or something. I dunno, I haven't figured out a good catch phrase for decorating yet.

Yay for you! I never win things, so I would have been really excited too. Wel, not never.... I did win a can of grape soda once in high school. Your kitty's way better than that!

Just found your blog.

"They are limpid pools of NOTHING"
lol. I found that so funny for some reason.
It always nice to have something tacky around. ;)

Megan -- paper clips and loose change,of course!

Fast Eddie's -- if what you always never say is true, then I am SUPER close to jebus. And thanks to the cat, it just got me practically on his LAP.

elizabeth -- I bet that was sweetest grape soda you ever sipped. And it's NOT TRUE that you never win anything -- seems to me you're a superior scribbler, hmmm???

Tashai -- thanks for finding and thanks for reading! And seriously -- the cat's eye pits are SERIOUSLY disturbing. Poor thing. Maybe I'll glue some jewels on there... just to make it even TACKIER!
