Rescue is standing by

It hit me sometime Friday evening, the one definitive sign spring has sprung in New England. (Yes, slightly more definitive than Dairy Queen opening.) I call it the “chest thing”, but it feels like pneumonia, bronchitis and strep throat all rolled into one, accompanied by a cough that’s already straining my back muscles. I get it every spring and most autumns and I’m told it’s connected to an allergen. Let’s just say today really sucked, although I’m watching Fargo right now, so it ain’t all bad.

Anyway, that’s the backstory. The real story:  I accidentally found out there are loldogs!

Now that I’ve found them, they almost killed me. Literally. The first one posted after the cut made me laugh hard enough I thought I cracked a rib coughing. The second…let’s just say I was on the floor trying to reach up to the coffee table for my cell phone before it subsided and I could breathe.

Yes, at that point I caught the hint. I will return when the evil “chest thing” has passed.

But after the jump are the two loldogs who were almost the death of me.

    I discovered LOLdogs two days ago!

    Are we clever chicks, or what?

    Still more fond of the cats, because attitude? They has it.

    But nothing beats a dog for sheer cluelessness.

    i *heart* LOLdogs. Probably because I have five dogs.

    Dude, that sounds way worse than some allergy thing. Gee thee to the doctor!

    I’m battling some icky stomach bug this weekend. Of course I have a million things to do and don’t have time to be sick. :censor:

    Aren’t they great? I’ve got my coworkers addicted to both.
    Srsly, though, hope the chest thing clears soon (go see a doctor if it doesn’t).

    Oh gads, too funny. I went to the site and nearly peed myself for the, “I know Timmy is down the well. I pushed him.”

    OMG, I loved that one, too!

    Wonderful procrastination destinations they both are, but the cats are still my favorite. Serious attitude.
