arm your kittens with samurai swords & one very official announcement

Pet-love has been at an all-time high in the office this week, and I am thrilled to have EB (who exudes cat-love from every pore) sharing the office wall with me for the last month (and in many months to come!) That said, with all the talk of zombies and the apocalypse these days, we’d like to kindly remind you of the importance of being ready for any emergency. This weekend, take a moment to consider how best you’d prepare your pet for war (courtesy of my new favorite site, TheOatmeal – like a snack for your funny bone.)

In other news: Congratulations to Andrew Broussard and Anne, winners of an indiscriminate eeny-meeny-minee-mo game and copies of TOTALLY KILLER! We enjoyed reading everyone’s comments, so please stay tuned this month for more chances to win good books (because you’re all cool people.) Ta!

It’s Totally Killer Week on Facebook, which could mean an iTunes Gift Card… for YOU.

Our friends at The Nervous Breakdown are hosting a feel-good contest this week, at the cost of making you relive your painful hairdo circa 1991 — publicly. But you could win an autographed copy of TOTALLY KILLER, and a $100 iTunes gift card, which due to inflation no longer gets you 100 songs — something that 1991 cackles ironically about to itself.


STEP 1. Change your Facebook status to this:

It’s “Totally Killer” week on Facebook. Change your profile picture to one taken in 1991.

STEP 2. Change your profile picture to one taken in 1991.

STEP 3. On the Wall of the TNB Facebook page, post your answer to this question: “In exactly three words, tell us what you were doing in 1991.”

That’s it. Easy-peasy.

Check out full rules and regulations at TNB — and get your Facebook AquaNet on before Friday!
