The Monday Morning Pick-Me-Up: Cinderblock and Cotton Balls

This Monday, I’m going to try something a little bit different. Instead of five people that had a worse weekend than you, how about a few stories to give your Monday morning a little boost? We’ll still mock a few people, but also have some just-for-fun stories. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.


If you follow me on Twitter, you know that there’s nothing I love more than cat videos. But cat videos I can relate to are even better, and I think we can all relate to Cinderblock.

Cinderblock is currently at Northshore Veterinary Hospital in Bellingham, Washington after her owner surrendered her because she was no longer able to care for her. The grey cat is morbidly obese, so the vet put her on a diet and exercise regime, and the videos of Cinderblock working out are basically all of us on the treadmill:

You can follow that Instagram account for more videos of Cinderblock but honestly, I just keep watching that one over and over again. [Via Buzzfeed News]

Jennifer Harrison

I know that it seems like 800 years ago, but do you guys remember this video from back in August, which went viral for the reaction of “green shirt guy” to a pair of MAGA supporters protesting illegal immigration?

Well, in what can only be called an amazing twist of fate, the woman in the video, Jennifer Harrison, was arrested on Thursday for identity theft…a charge that is often used to prosecute illegal immigrants.

Harrison was charged with a Class 4 felony for “by accessing an elderly victim’s hotel points” and used the victim’s name, address and club-reward points to make a hotel reservation. Upon her arrest, according to her booking documents, “Jennifer created a scene at the PD (police department) and in the booking room because she believes she is above the law and does not want to be treated like a criminal.”

Sweet, sweet irony. [Via AZ Central]
