i've had a grumpy evening, for no particular reason (besides the Giants NOT playing so well... but we won't talk about that). since it's caturday, and it's time to get my head in the game (it's JUNE!), i thought i'd post about... grumpiness. and who better catifies (that's a new word - like personifies, but CAT instead of PERSON. i'm clever ;) ) grumpiness than the marvellous TARDAR SAUCE?!
yeah, her real name is Tardar Sauce (and let's face it, i'd probably also be pretty grumpy if that were my name), but she's better known to the internet world as Grumpy Cat.
she actually looks perpetually upset because she has a condition called feline dwarfism. she turned 1 in April this year, but has already had it tough... i mean, carrying the world's grumpiness on your shoulders is a pretty big burden, don't you think? ;)
so, she has obviously inspired some artwork...
i especially love the work of the Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment Centre - around 30 of their artists created unique pieces of art centred around Tardar. check it out and see if you don't think it's cool! my favourite pieces from that project are below:
(yes, that is stained glass, y'all.)
CHAINMAIL, guys. CHAINMAIL.
and my favourites...
GRUMPY CAT PAPER SNOWFLAKES AAAAAH.
okay, okay. so it's obvious that Grumpy Cat is popular as heck! she has JUST JUST landed a movie deal though - how awesome is that? this was her response:
you can read more about her movie deal (and just generally about her) here. meanwhile, i'm gonna go to bed - after Grumpy Cat has successfully made me way less grumpy!
