today's rockstars: my sister and the Atlanta panda
my fabulous sister, whom i adore, lives in Atlanta, Georgia. she's been sending me links to follow the saga of the birth of Mei Lan, the baby giant panda cub since this cute little furball was born at the Atlanta Zoo. even though her cuteness alone would guarantee her a frenzied following, a highly-publicised poll that was conducted to name her pretty much ensured that the entire city would fall in love with her. (i, for one, am disappointed that the name Bling Bling, due to the city of her birth, was not adopted .)
today was her big media debut, and she did not disappoint. apparently she "romped around while her mother chomped bamboo." Mei Lan is a rockstar; she's expected to draw up to ten thousand more people per day to the zoo than usual. ten thousand! actual rockers would kill to have that kind of boost in ticket sales...maybe poor Kevin Federline could use a baby panda...
but all this is backstory: my sister is the rockstar here, people: because of her, the entire Cute Overload! universe has been introduced to the lovable fuzziness that is Bling Bling, woops! i mean Mei Lan. you may have noticed i have, for a long time, linked to C.O. in my blogroll to the right. yes, i am an unabashed fan of Meg's daily dose of snuggly happy small animals looking heart-wrenchingly adorable combined with her hilarious snarky commentary. (people, the site gets over 6500 hits a day and wins lots of bloggy awards. you know you love it.)
so imagine my stunned excitement when today, i click for my daily hit of cuteness and see the same photos my sister e-mailed me that morning. imagine my shrieks of glorious discovery when i see that the "sender-inner" is none other than my fabulous, amazing sister!
she used to think that her Yahoo!Movies user's review of Apocalypto appearing on the main page was her big moment of pop culture stardom... well, this one will be hard to beat. way to go, E.G.!
