I've been researching for some weird things, so I haven't had enough time to find something small yet (plus I have a real life, sort of). However, I found a permanent link to my Kiki-themed boutique, so I thought I'd put this up. (I'll put it on the list)And check this out.

I've been searching all over for a fan-made Irregulars quiz or fanfic, and I finally found one!

If you’re looking to stop a crime but can’t find anything, try stopping such odd and obscure crimes such as:
Removing rocks from the state of Hawaii,
Someone playing dominoes on Sunday in Alabama,
Someone throwing pickle juice on a trolley in Rhode Island,
Or someone singing in the bathtub in Pennsylvania (though, please, just overhear them!)
To make sure you aren’t breaking any laws in your state (or just laugh your head off) go here.

Random Irregular! What kind of virtual cookie would you like?
It’s a set of chairs (and one table) that stacks into a rocket-looking thing. It’s meant to save space.

(Other than a baby doll coat rack)
Blender Fish Tank- Relax, fish lovers! This ‘blender’ has no sharp blades (or whatever they actually put inside them.) It’s a fake blender, meant as a joke. The ones I’ve seen play sounds of screaming (cute screaming, not scary screaming) when you press one of the buttons. The fish remains unaware that you are laughing at his expense throughout the procedure.
Fairy Door- This is a teensy door that you install in your home or garden, but I think the best place is right next to your own or in a mound of dirt. Whether fairies do come to live there or not, it’s still fun to make the neighbors think you’re crazy!
Possessed Books- Who wouldn’t like a set of books that moves in and out when you walk by? Of course, I’ll probably be doing my late-night reading in a different room once they’re there, but I’ll burn that bridge when I get to it.
This Thing- First one who can tell me what it is wins a virtual cookie (your choice of type.)

Yesterday I went to the coolest fair ever. It was (as you can already tell by the tell-all title of this post) a renaissance fair. You could buy:
1. Wings (fake)
2. Swords (real and fake)
3. Arrows (real and fake)
4. Hair sticks
6. Dragons (fake, of course)
My only regret (actually two) is that I didn't have enough money to buy everything, and that I wasn't born in the Renaissance. I would have been a pirate or something!

Normally I would not feel this was post-worthy, but it's a pink diamond! Like from Kiki Strike! I'm such a dork that I couldn't resist putting this layout up when I found it... thanks to FN for having an awesome layout making me not be able to resist to go and find one for me.

I'd have a picture of a wet cat here, but they all looked too scary. While looking for 'bathe a cat day' (which I know has to exist, and if it doesn't, I'll make it exist) I found this site on cat bathing. It's not really "weird" or anything, but it made me laugh out loud, and I already saw the second one.
If you are interested in really bathing your kitty, click here.

You really have to wonder how much the people who thought of these get paid... and why there are still commercials like Sketchers.
Okay, not even I can completely wrap my mind around this. In 1626, a man named Peter Minuit purchased the entire island of Manhattan from the Algonquin indian tribes with trinkets that were worth 60 Dutch Gilders. That's calculated to be worth, say... $24 dollars.
Now you can't even fill up a tank of gas for that much!
I was searching underground cities on Ask.com, and look what came up! A cool holiday that was only days away! If you click here you will find a web page dedicated to this wonderful day, including ways to celebrate.
Me? I'm going to *try* to bury my house. Or listen to a conversation through the earth.
On the subject of underground, there are actually houses that are built underground. Or, more correctly, INTO the ground. These houses may be able to slow down overpopulation (according to my brain which is not always correct) because we can go in BOTH directions now, up and down.
The interesting thing is that you don't need an air conditioner if you build it in the desert because the natural movement of the air through your front and back "door" (hole) will cool you off. Go green! Or, at least, brown!

Fwee! I have a daemon. Isn't he the cutest?

Anyone who’s read the Kiki Strike books will know how to summon a ‘ghost’ in their house. The following post could, I guess, be considered ‘extended reading’ on how to get your friends and family to finally believe in ghosts.
Pictures with Moving Eyes
There are two ways to get the eyes of your pictures to move. The first is to build a secret room behind your picture, cut the eyes out, and hire someone to stand behind it. The second is far less conspicuous. You’ll need a frame and a copy of your picture. The deeper the frame is the better. The first thing you need to do is cut out the eyes and put your photo in place. Then draw eyes on a piece of sturdy paper so the eyes would be inside the cut-out holes if the picture were placed up to the photograph. This might take a few tries. If you want to use the original eyes just glue them onto the dots. Fold the edges of the paper like this:
And glue it to the back of your photo. Then put the frame back together and place it in the room!
Appliances Acting Weird
Look online for objects that are remote controlled, such as radios or lights. Then hide your remote somewhere you can get to it inconspicuously and ‘help’ your ghost at work. If you can’t buy these, you can always set your television to a channel with static beforehand and use that remote, or speed dial your number using a cell phone.
Messages from Beyond the Beyond
If you don’t want to write on mirrors or over heaters, why not write in BLOOD? An easy way to replicate blood is to mix water with ketchup (though you can try any red substance or buy fake blood). It won’t fool anyone who tries to do a DNA test on it, but it should suit your purpose.
If you have Microsoft Word or another application on your computer with autocorrect, you can take your haunting to a whole new level. Choose a name, place, or something that might be significant to your ‘ghost’ and tell the computer to replace the word with something along the lines of ‘help’ or ‘get out.’ Make sure you have an explanation as to why you typed this word if your target asks.

The strange e-mails just keep coming when I received a picture of the puppy above. It wasn’t dyed like some cats I’ve posted here, but it was actually born this way. Unfortunately, the discoloration is only temporary.

The following are all entries for an art contest in the Hirshorn Modern Art Gallery in DC. If anyone knows who the artists are, please tell me so I can give them credit. The challenge? To use only one sheet of paper!
Okay, here's something interesting. I know some people who don't believe global warming is our fault. Now, before I get any angry comments, I'm not sure if their theory is a good one or not.
According to this theory, the sun builds up energy over time, only letting out a small amount. But ever thousands of millions of years (a lot of years), the sun lets out all that pent up energy in the form of energy blasts. The sun hit the ozone and left a hole.
Coincidentally, that was when cars had just become popular, but there are no coincidences, are there?
Here's the part that makes me wonder if its true: there are more cars than EVER now, and the hole's getting smaller.
Keep in mind I got this entire thing from my sixth grade social studies teacher, who's kind of crazy.

I need your help! I’ve just heard of a terrible genetic defect called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which affects young boys and puts them in wheelchairs as early as age eight. It has a one-hundred percent fatality rate and usually kills by the late teens or early twenties. There is no known cure, but science is on the edge of finding one. They just need donations to continue their research.
What can we do? Make others aware of this cause! Shopdrop the address of this site, put it online, and make sure everyone knows they can make a difference!
Information on how to donate can be found on the site the above link directs you to.

I found this quizzy online, and I couldn't believe anyone has enough time on their hands to make it. Though I shouldn't be talking because I have enough time on my hands to take it! Ah, well. It took away five minutes of my life, which is all that matters.
