Call Me, Maybe


via Lindsey Weber:
A bunch of us are being serious plagued by the earworm parasite that is Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe.’ As soon as XTINE found out that Jepsen fans go by “JEPFRIENDS,” a nightmare was born and we started calling ourselves and everyone we knew Jepfriends*. We had to help our Jepfriends, and according to Bieber, the only cure for ‘Call Me Maybe’ is a finely edited group singalong.
*FEATURED JEPFRIENDS: interweberdrinkyourjuice, speriod, bobbyfinger, iamsosorry, folkinz, hoodratbusiness, kindafabulous, ramou, Bex, mattstopera, fjelstud & buster & lyla.

The Bear-Schwartz household makes a doctor's appointment

Me: Hi, I'd like to make an appointment for Panda Boo Bear's yearly check up. 
Vet's Office: Panda Boo Bear ... let's see ... is your last name Bear?
Me: No, my cat's last name is Bear. My last name is Schwartz. 
Vet's Office: Oh, there he is! Panda Boo Bear Schwartz. 
Me: No, when I adopted him I didn't make him take my last name.
Vet's Office: Well, that's how we list them. So, just so you know, he's in our records as Panda Boo Bear Schwartz. 
Me: I feel like we should hyphenate that? 
Vet's Office: I'm sorry? 
Me: Can we hyphenate that? Like he's Panda Boo Bear-Schwartz? 
Vet's Office: ... if you'd prefer. 
Me: Yes, thank you.
