12 Days of Christmas- Day 9

18 Dec

My name is Jen, and I’m an addict. I can’t pinpoint the exact moment my habit made the leap from recreational use to full-blown addiction. Maybe it was the time I sat in my car during my lunch hour, participating in my new hobby. It could have been the time I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning partaking in it even though I knew I had to get up early the next day. How does one define these kinds of moments?

My name is Jen, and I’m addicted to internet memes.

I am ashamed, dear readers, because I should have been writing a post for you tonight. I come up with the concept to deliver twelve posts in a row to show my holiday spirit, and now I can’t deliver. Instead of typing feverishly, I’ve been pissing away my night looking at things like this:


I’ve fallen in love with various sets of internet memes over time. First, there were things which reminded me of my childhood because, you know, that was such an awesome time in my life.


Then I became downright obsessed with Someecards. I apologize to all my Facebook friends who had to endure that.


Then came my retro period when I thought it was ironic and hilarious to pair graphics from the 50’s with vulgar commentary.


This is just a picture of Gary Busey because I found it on my computer, and wanted to stick it in this post.


I can’t forget the hours spent looking at inspirational posters…


…or Pickup Line Panda.


Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my favorite meme ever, Cocaine Bear.


But tonight I wasn’t looking at any of these things. No, a new sheriff is in town, and he goes by the name of Grumpy Cat. It’s a cat….that looks grumpy. Come on, it’s not rocket science.




My life will not be complete until I own a cat like that.

Today’s challenge is to tell me how you waste time. Reality television? Playing Angry Birds? Drinking PBR and listening to some crappy band with a jug player in it? This is the time to fess up.

Grumpy Cat was kind enough to select today’s winner, and that person is La La! E-mail me at Sipsofjenandtonic@gmail.com to claim your prize.

See you on the flipside, peeps.

    SOOO funny, I love some cards and the vintage ones , and I especially love your grumpy cat memes. Keep being addicted, my friend.

    I waste time reading blogs! It’s amazing how much time has gone by now and I’ve already read ten. But I tell myself it’s not a waste of time because at the end I’m usually inspired enough to write a post. Or to start writing a post that I actually post days later.

    Hey, now, reading other peoples’ blogs isn’t wasting time…until I realize that I haven’t made progress on my novel in days.

    Civilization, on the other hand, has prevented me from doing both for a full week now.

    Well, thanks to your post, now I can waste time trying to find out if Gary Busey had cosmetic surgery, and if so, what’s the deal with his eyes? And are those his real teeth?
    Speaking of which, did Robin McGraw (Dr. Phil’s wife) get new teeth? See, this is yet another subject I can research this morning instead of showering, doing the dishes, cleaning the house, writing, and paying bills. Thanks!

    That grumpy cat is so good. I don’t know why. It just is.

    Bubbleshooter. Fortunately, I don’t play it very often but when I do, I’m so disgusted with myself afterward for wasting my time.

    Oh dear god, how do I NOT waste time? Oregon Settlers (on the phone…), Angry Birds Star Wars, “Say Yes to the Dress”, about 5 or 6 other tv series, on the 16th book (4th time re-read) of Laurell K Hamilton series…

    Blogging…yes there’s no time for anything else. It is my extra time when I should be doing ten other things. I see I’m not the only one. I love all my blogging friends so. Love the grumpy cat. I think he needs some catnip.

    Why, I waste time by blogging, of course.
    I thought that was obvious. 😉

    Yay, La La won! 🙂

    My two biggest (and most favorite) time wasters are WORDPRESS and BAKING. Hells yeah. Oftentimes, you can find me in my underwear chowing down on my latest cupcake recipes whilst perusing WordPress, willing people to write more damn posts.

    I love grumpy cat! (its actually me, reincarnated) Time waster for me is the internet. I can spend hours online doing absolutely nothing.

    […] I just can’t allow that to happen. It’s pathetic. Instead I made a meme, because Jen said they are cool, and we are a power couple, so […]
