Are you shitting me? He’s in his early 20s? He’s gorgeous.
Yes, I think you may have missed his back story, which I posted while you were away from Tumblr.
I’ve had him for over 17 years now, and his previous owner rescued him from an animal shelter a few years earlier as a fully-grown adult cat (he had already been fixed and declawed while at the shelter.)
At this point, I’m pretty sure he might outlive *ME*! :P

"…Well yeah, I might have chased a couple women around All it ever got me was down Then there were those that made me feel good But never as good as I feel right now Baby you’re the only one that’s ever known how To make me wanna live like I wanna live now…”
For my 'Default' ringtone I currently have the theme from “Boston Legal”- no real reason, just always thought it was a fun song.
Prior ‘Default’ ringtones: “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” (after the Red Sox last won the WS), “Voodoo Chile”, and the original “Hawaii Five-0” theme.
I also have a bunch of specific ringtones for certain friends & family, here are some of my favorites:
For my Dad: the theme from “The Benny Hill show” - mainly because my brother and I have teased him for years that he looks like the short-bald old man from Benny Hill (the guy whose bald head used to always get patted during the infamous chase scenes)
For my formerly *stoner* nephews: Jay’s Rap, from “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back”.
For my brother: Ozzy’s “Crazy Train”.
And for calls from work: “The Imperial Match” (aka- Darth Vader’s theme)
…I’ve also used that last song for one of my “Evil-Ex’s”, after she tracked me down a few years ago… Thankfully, that ring hasn’t played since this past New Year’s Eve!
Oh, this song! This exact version. I remember walking home from school listening to this, and I’d smile at the second half when they start joking around, “yes, she did!” “yeah, she done!”, and the high vocal notes… haha, I love it.
Cool, this has always been one of my favorite Beatles’ songs, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard *this* version before.
It’s been awhile since I wrote about this (and I can’t seem to find it in my archives), but my journey to Tumblr was a “happy accident” thanks to Last.FM’s “Neighbours” feature, which suggests friends based on music tastes.
In May of 2010, I was actually enjoying a very rare vacation week from work, and didn’t have much planned for the week so I started playing with the Last.FM account which I had just started a month earlier. As I searched through the Neighbours friend suggestions, I saw someone with a “SUPER” music-compatibility rating (who also just happened to have a very cute profile photo) and decided to friend them, along with a few other people… That first person I ‘friended’ was none other than the awesome jesserelly (under a different name at the time).
As I browsed her Last.FM, I saw a link for her Tumblr site, now I had heard the term Tumblr from some G4 podcasts, but had no idea what it actually was so I curiously clicked the link… Her blog immediately drew me in, there were music posts, funny GIFs, honest writing about her life, and of course some fake mustaches! - From her links and reblogs, I also found some other great Tumblrs (I can’t remember all of them, but I clearly remember awkwardlyawesome being one of them)
Unfortunately my old PC died a couple of days after I first found Tumblr, so I ended up computer-less for the next month (I still have nightmares over that!), and couldn’t join until after I bought my current laptop. I finally joined on July 2nd 2010, and happilyjesserelly also became my very first follower, and helped me a lot over my first couple of months to navigate through the wonders of Tumblr… including teaching me the "art of the GIF reply"…So yes, you can all blame praise Jessica for that!
Is this that place in CT you mentioned before? If so I must go now…
Yes, it’s the same place: Nita’s Restaurant in Willimantic, but unfortunately they’re already closed for today - I was so late today, I actually ended-up being their last customer of the day! - Thankfully, they love me there!
"Lily, my one and only I can hardly wait ‘til I see her Silly, I know I’m silly 'Cause I'm hanging in this tree In the hopes that she will catch a glimpse of me And through her window shade I watch her shadow move I wonder if she…”
”..You’re just a walking billboard for all the latest brands You’ve got no taste in music and you really love our band Your haircut is atrocious, it’s been the same since ‘83 Your glory days are over and so’s your stonewashed jeans”
Awesome, I haven’t heard this one in years! - Crank this MF’er up!!! :D
"…Some people say Daydreaming’s for all the, huh, Lazy minded fools, with nothin’ else to do So let them laugh, laugh at me So just as long as I have you To see me through I have nothing to lose… ’Long as I have you
