Easing back into the work-week after an extended weekend is never easy, especially if you’ve been in certified ‘vacation mode’ and possibly engaged in activities that perpetuate conversion of your gray matter into Jell-O Brand Jello. After a three-day weekend of sun, fun and hot dog buns, digging back into the realities of life and work can be akin to a root canal.
We here at The Daily Treat and Muttropolis understand the pain of returning to work or school after vacation and would like to offer you some support during this difficult time. To help ease your transition back into reality and ensure your brain isn't overcome by toxic work-related information, we highly recommend you punctuate your day with small bursts of joy by visiting the following hysterically pointless websites. As certified time-wasters, they are sure to put a smile back on your face and help you manage through what surely will be a challenging week. Good luck. Just do it.
1) Upsidedowndogs.com – Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like. I find that the dogs with flappy, floppy lips are truly the true contenders on this site and that an overwhelming number of the dogs resemble something from a Stephen King or Stephenie Meyer novel.
2) Catsinsinks.com – Need we say more? It's about cats. And kittens. Who like sinks. And basins.
3) Cutethingsfallingasleep.com – Videos of everything from baby bunnies, hamsters, elephants, kittens and of course, puppies, struggling to stay awake and ultimately falling asleep. One of my faves is the sleepy puppy video "Juno the English Bulldog takes a sitting nap." Be sure to stay with it 'till the very end for the crescendo
Ever wondered what your Mastiff might look like with the Jennifer/Rachel flip or what your Dachsund might look like with The Donald's 'do? Well now's your chance to find the answer to that burning question. My dog Schmoo has always wanted to know what she'd look like as a blonde…(see pic at right) and now she's begging for Ken Paves extensions.
5) Catsinboxes.com. Yup. That's it. A site dedicated to the pleasure that Putty Tat's find in the confines of cardboard.
