This is going to be pretty sick. As in, a serious case of word vomit. Well, more like the kind of word vomit that would happen if I had also consumed, along with the words, a large side order of GIFs. I'm not sure who coined the term "word vomit", but I like it. Also, I feel like it's not completely accurate because regular vomiting is not fun and word vomiting is. Additionally, sometimes word vomiting can be a nice break from the norm, whereas regular vomiting is a break from the norm but rarely nice.
So, when I found out that we had to do GIFs today (as a part of the Blog Everyday in July challenge) I was like:
because I had never used a GIF in a blog post ever and so obviously they were really, really hard to use. And unfortunately some of us don't have a source of unlimited free GIFs that we can use without even naming names, so where was I even supposed to find GIFs that I could use without being arrested if the police ever read my blog?
I was having a tough time (understandably so, considering the circumstances), so I ate, duh.
Which made the situation a lot better.
Then I Googled "How to Use a GIF/Image" and apparently it's easier than it sounds. So I gave it a shot. And I successfully added this GIF to my post.
Isn't it so cute? Why doesn't my cat do this? I'm getting a new cat. Bye, Si/Pepper. And that is how I discovered that GIFs are a wonderful thing.
As you can imagine, I was feeling kind of like this ish after that little win.
You know, fabulous. So I thought, "You know what would be really cool? If I MADE MY OWN GIFs for this post! It would literally be my day in GIFs! Why didn't I do that? I should totally do that!"
Yeah. And then I was like, "Great idea Miss I-Just-Learned-How-To-Use-A-GIF."
But, I mean, it was kind of a fun idea.
Then, my dad went to bed and I was left basically alone in the house at night and lonely, and so I turned on the TV and was really really reallllllly hoping that Friends would be on.
But I knew I had about as big of a chance of watching Friends tonight as Andy up there probably does of getting whatever he wants.
If you don't watch The Office, you may think that that's a good thing. I'm here to tell you it's not. What Andy wants rarely happens, which is why The Office is funny and I was so sad.
But I scrolled through the channels even though I knew it wasn't happening. And guess what?
IT WAS ON!!!!
Which means that, obviously, all the Friends celebrated with me.
Oh! And you know what I just realized? JK Rowling totally invented GIFs! Remember these?
Yep. Before it was cool.
Anyway, from here on out, I can tell that there will probably be a lot more GIF vomit. And if anyone asks who coined the term GIF vomit, that was me.
