A Normal Evening at the Lawlers'

All in all we're a pretty regular family. We have simple tastes. We enjoy pretty things, like flowers (especially nice ones we get as gifts):

Fine foods:

Life entertainment from only the finest:

We're cultured, even.

Which makes you wonder about displays like these:

Undue aggression involving sewing scissors:

Reluctance to leave folks alone when they're engrossed in their studies of fine literature:

And a penchant for retiring to obscure, dark corners of rooms while others enjoy after-dinner refreshment (always in the most graceful ways possible).

Why would you want to hang out back there? Especially when we've got cigarettes and extraneous legs on this side of the room!

Cats that, yes, look like Hitler.

Please don't ask me how I found this site (click on title of post)(did I mention that I don't like how you can't tell if a title is an active link or not?).

I especially love that you're warned you could be hurt for no reason at all. I feel like these people have their bases covered.

The bad news is that the application was due on June 2. Sigh. Next year!
