Your Moment of GIF

I need to be honest with you guys.

Recently, I've been feeling like I've bitten off a bit more than I can chew. With work, blogging, writing for other sites, making sure I'm not neglecting the Mister or the Mollie, and attempting to get more than five hours of sleep a night, I've been spreading myself a bit thin. I know that I can make it all work, I just have to find the right system.

That said, I do not want to renege on my promise of posting five times a week. I also want to make sure that I am bringing my A-game to this blog and not letting it become impersonal or boringly routine. You guys deserve the best! There are times, however, at which I need to make things a little easier on myself, and that might mean not writing multiple posts a week that take 5+ hours to complete. (*cough*Nerd News*cough*)

I'm sure a lot of you find yourself in similar situations and don't always have the time to read an endless scroll, either. With that in mind, I've created a new quasi-series that I will use on the occasion that I've just flat run out of time (or metaphorical gas, as the case may be). Please don't see this as a cop-out; it's not. It's merely me wanting to provide you with the best I can, even if that best is, on occasion, something utterly simple (yet still entertaining!).

I know, I know, get to the good stuff already, Mandy. Without further ado, I give you:

You all know how much I love me some GIFs.  I have loads that I've never used saved to my Photobucket, and I want to share them with you. The emotion of the GIF might change, depending on my mood when I post, but my goal is to give you a tiny peek into my head/heart on a given day through the magic of the Graphics Interchange Format. Here's today's:

(Future posts of this nature won't have nearly as many words, I promise.)

A note on the graphic: The other day, I was having a conversation with TGG about the recent dustup over how you actually pronounce the acronym, and he mentioned that his brother thinks they should just be called "peanut butters." I love the idea. (Thanks, Justin!) When creating a graphic for this post, I knew I wanted to incorporate the idea somehow, so I searched "GIF peanut butter" and found this graphic. The colors didn't quite mesh with the C&CC palette, however, so I altered it to fit.


  1. YES! GIFs make my life -- everyone's lives -- better xD (and the peanut butter thing is awesome!!!)
