Best Excuse for Avoiding a Horrid Date, Ever

"I need to wash my hedgehogs."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNXTcF6Zees&feature=player_embedded

Watch all the way to the very end to see one absolutely redefine what it means to curl into a little tiny ball.  Like all chronic depressives, I'm incredibly jealous.

By the way, a sniffly fund drive post is forthcoming so as to raise money to meet my desperate need to purchase a hedgehog.  Give today!

And here's your chaser, my "Sometimes, I Really Wish I Were an Australian" moment of the week.  This is priceless commentary from two Canberra air traffic controllers as they watch a lumbering Russian aircraft (kinda sorta) take off.  No word on whether or not it was carrying desperately needed tasteful ice dance costumes.

Turn it up, but not so loud that any nuns can hear.  I must in good conscience pass on a NSFW language warning.

a really good basic hedgehog starts at $250 at:  mbe@drinktothelasses.com

The cargo manifest only lists Plushenko's ego.

I think Nurse Dog deserves a Best Supporting award for its role in the hedgehog video.

[...] thank you.  I really need to wash my hedgehogs.“ Share and [...]

Maybe it's the general crumminess of Ohio weather or all those English hedgehog stories from my children's childhood, but that was somehow very soothing. I'd vote for Nurse Dog, too!

My almost-3-year-old was absolutely fascinated by the hedgehog video. She kept asking to watch it over and over. We may have to look into getting a hedgehog for a pet.

Wow, I sure could've used that hedgehog excuse a couple years back...
