this is what twosie tuesdays are supposed to look like.

Completely at ease with each other, the chimp's motherly instincts took over as she attentively bottle fed the baby tiger. Aorn gratefully lapped up the milk as Do Do tenderly held the tiger in her arms, as if they were literally mother and child. (via)
i don't even like monkeys, but you can't argue with that lap-stretch.

Give it a break ... gourami

did you pull those fish out of their houses to give them some kit-kats?
Aquarium staff were baffled when the 8.8lb giant gourami called Gary rejected normal food after being donated to them.
Then the previous owners of the exotic Asian freshwater fish admitted feeding it only with the chocolate-covered wafers.
Experts at the Sea Life London Aquarium had to put crushed Kit Kat pieces inside grapes and banana slices to tempt the 15.7in-long fish on to a normal diet.
Gary's handler Rebecca Carter said: "I've never heard of a fish being fed chocolate, let alone brought up entirely on the stuff."
Gouramis are a delicacy in Indonesia. Rebecca added: "Gary doesn't appear to have suffered ill effects. Most fish wouldn't be able to survive on Kit Kats but gouramis are very hardy."
Gary, thought to be seven to ten years old, is not the only Aquarium fish to have picked up odd habits from previous owners. Catfish Ed likes to be stroked on the head as staff feed it by hand. (via)
oooohhh, gaaarrryyyy.

is everyone caught up?

congressional leaders managed to strike a deal on a bill, which passed in the house yesterday, and will be voted on by the senate today. nobody is happy, which is the hallmark of a good compromise. and by "a good compromise", i mean "things are worse than ever."

did you guys hear who showed up to cast a vote last minute?

Scores of Democrats initially held back from voting, to force Republicans to register their positions first. Then, as the time for voting wound down, Representative Gabrielle Giffords, Democrat of Arizona, returned to the floor for the first time since being shot in January and voted for the bill to jubilant applause and embraces from her colleagues. It provided an unexpected, unifying ending to a fierce standoff in the House. (via)

rachel's puppy will keep his name, of SIR CHARLES BARKLEY!

except that she already started calling him "bo jackson", which is confusing because it wasn't even one of the poll options. he'll always be yella bear in my heart!

BRB Outside: Boston!

I went to Boston. But first! i was on the High Line.

then I was in Mass. On a boat.

On my way home i saw real Hells Angels. They rode with military precision.

Thanks to the city of NY for showing me a beautiful sight.

This is the sunset off of the pier where your car gets towed to. s on that, d.o.t.
