Rickrolling is an Internet meme involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up“. The meme is a bait and switch: a person provides a Web link they claim is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video… When a person clicks on the link given and is led to the web page he/she is said to have been “Rickrolled”.
I got rickrolled today when I tried clicking on a link to watch the Tina Fey/Sarah Palin & Amy Poehller/Hillary Clinton SNL sketch on Youtube. I was confused when an 80’s-tastic guy came onscreen singing a tortured love ballad. The comments below the video clued me in, and I researched it with Google.
See? I learned something today. Maybe nothing of value, but… it was fun. Here’s the link that “got” me:

Aaaaaand…. The corner of my living room smells like cat pee. I found the source: the wall. It’s as though the paint itself has been infused with the delicate fragrance of cat urine.
I decided to clean it with bleach water. As soon as I sprayed the wall, yellow splotches appeared where, I assume, the previous tenant (the owner, also our landlord) allowed her cat to baptize the wall and LEAVE it. I hadn’t smelled this before because I usally sit on the left side of the couch, far away from the smell. Mike never mentioned it to me, because he thought it was the Glade Plugin I had bought. Sensitive husband…
Here’s hoping our living room will stop smelling like cat urine, bleach, or bleached cat urine.
