Listen up everyone-- grab the tissues and prepare to shed a few tears. The beloved blog Regretsy is going to be kaput very, very soon. Founder April Winchell recently announced that after three-and-a-half years, the DIY meets WTF site will be turned into one big archive on February 1st. Readers can still leave comments and browse through past hilarious posts that poke fun at crafting, but Winchell will no longer be making snarky observations about regretful Etsy products.
There's so much hoopla surrounding 'Les Miserables' recently, and rightly so -- the film is a new level of spectacular. It's basically about the French Revolution, there are good and bad people and it's awesome. If you take it down a few thousand notches, it's sort of like the movie 'Mean Girls,' minus the revolution. Sort of. You know-- the one where Regina George is the queen of the coolest high school clique, and Lindsay Lohan's character tries to sabotage her?
How is it possible dogs come up with ways to be more flippin' adorable every single day?! It's sort of ridiculous to be honest. Not that we're complaining or anything, but the furballs are just so darn cute, it's grounds for a little suspicion.
It seems like Darth Vader's turned a positive corner recently. He's become part of the Disney family after all, so maybe the whole hanging out with princesses thing is turning him into a softie. Or maybe he just got a bad rep all these years. Whatever the case, it doesn't seem like the Dark Lord is all that bad. Why? Well, these kiddos are proof.
Is it just us, or does it seem like sloths are getting more popular lately? Baby versions, ones with Skrillex hair-- you name it, it's out there. They've been around for thousands and thousands of years, but maybe it's one of those things where people are just now understanding the little guys. Whatever the case, there are zero complaints on our end since they're so ridiculously cute.
It takes a certain breed of human (or animal for that matter) to perfect the almighty photobomb. The creepy expression, the ideal timing-- it takes a lot of talent. Some jokesters can spend years practicing these techniques, but others are just naturals (like babies). So who's the most recent addition to the photobomber talent list? Celebrities.
With flu season slowing taking down everyone you know, it's safe to say you'll be making a trip to the doctor's office pretty soon. No one likes going to the doctor-- it's one of those things we just have to buckle down and do, despite wanting to drag our feet and pout like a two-year-old.
We'd like to take a moment to give sweet, sweet thanks to our girl J.K. Rowling for introducing us to the coolest wizard of all time-- Harry Potter. Why? Because he rules. Remember how Harry fought off Lord Voldemort and had an awesome pet owl? It's impressive stuff.
Miniature horses are probably one of the funniest animals, hands down. There's just something about seeing the things in a shrunken down version that gets us every darn time. Honestly-- can you look at a tiny foal without cracking a smile? No way!
It's a dog eat dog world out there, and these days, it's really hard to find true love. We're talking about about the kind that leaves you slobbering and all goggly-eyed and all that mushy stuff. Sure it's rare to come across, but love does exist! How do we know? Well, we've discovered a whole bunch of dogs that are giving us some solid proof.
Warning: our obsession with baby animals is unstoppable. Can you honestly blame us, though? We're already suckers for anything fuzzy and adorable, but when it comes in a tiny version, we're just sucked in automatically. Remember miniature puppies or itty bitty kittens? Our point exactly.
Lions aren't usually one of those animals we go "aww!" over. They're actually sort of scary — that is, unless they come in dog form. No, seriously! Remember when we introduced you to that poor lion pup who got the cops called on him? Well, it turns out there's a whole bunch of fellow lion fakers of the canine variety out there, and they couldn't get any cuter.
It's a little sad, but guinea pigs all-too-often get left out of the costuming mix. It's understandable considering their small stature and the limited amount of miniature clothes available for cute rodents, but there's no real excuse for us to overlook them so much.
Sloths have always been cute little things, but we have Kristen Bell to thank for bringing their sheer adorableness to light this time last year. Sure, the actress is really, really emotionally attached to the animals, but we honestly can't blame her. Sloths make any situation like, 20 times cuter. Taking a bath? Check. Wearing onesies? You betcha!
