I met some new friends yesterday and I learned about a cute little kitty with two names that liked to get into a bag of popcorn, thus the new word "kitcorn." But don't worry - I already checked and it wasn't your average bag of Boy Scout popcorn all buttery and greasy inside the bag.... Continue Reading →
I'm not gonna lie....I sleep with a teddy bear. There. I said it. And I'm proud. It's not because I can't sleep without it and it's not because I need comfort, I just really like having somewhere for my arms to be. BUT. If you are too embarrassed to celebrate ol' Teddy Roosevelt yourself, you... Continue Reading →
I think the title says enough. My friend Merlin Marilyn and I were chatting the other day and realized that we've been friends for so long that our friendship could get drunk at a bar and not get arrested for it.
Smudge has been a big window fan these days and will spend hours sitting and staring out them. I like to think he's imagining he's on safari.
We got this wine insta-cooler thing as a wedding present (thanks, Jordan!) and used it the other day. Duncan was in the kitchen with us and as soon as it started spinning the bottle around and making a weird whirring noise, he was instantly transfixed and mesmerized. It was like a cat-charmer. Maybe I can... Continue Reading →
Here is an attempt with a bit more effort and practice. I'm liking this tablet more and more. P.S. In case you were fooled by my super talents, that is a drawing of a pencil, not a real pencil.
So Adam and my brother Ben were talking about us living in Adam's parent's basement. My brother called me a Basement Troll. So here I am as a Basement Troll. I played around with coloring it. Thoughts?
So I am playing with and learning my tablet (it is kind of hard to get used to!). This is a super short, not so glamorous animation I just did in a few minutes to play with the animation app and see what it's all about. Duncan is so demanding...
So I got a Bamboo Fun tablet as a birthday present and this is the first result. Not too great, but I just wanted to get a feel for doodling on it. So here is Duncan as I was sitting in the kitchen with my new Bamboo tablet as he heard Adam come home... Continue Reading →
So again on Halloween some more confusion and awkwardness in all the fun. This time, my friend had moved out of town and let her friends know about the family buying her house. So as we go up to her old house for treats, the guy and his wife come out holding an array of... Continue Reading →
First off, let me just state I know it should be "really" but I think "real" sounds more fun in the title. So there. Anyway, this is when I was about 9 or 10 and my friend and I were trick-or-treating in our neighborhood. Generally expecting a fine assortment of candies from each stop,... Continue Reading →
So Duncan had to take a trip to the vet the other day for vomiting. He never really ralphs excepts when he might have eaten too quickly so this was of some concern. The vet thought it might be a hairball and that to keep an eye on things. Well, the next day his hairball... Continue Reading →
I think my mom's cat Sabrina would be a wonderful dinner partner as long as she was dressed up so no one would suspect her real species. She might run away and hide, though....which takes away from the ambiance of the evening.
I've been a bit late today on the post because I had to draw this for.......OUR BIRTHDAY!!!! I say our because I have a twin brother. And yes, I am the older twin. By 6 minutes. But anyway that gives me older sibling authority, as a self-declared privilege. I think it's written somewhere, too.... Continue Reading →
So we all met Bagley this week and I think you'll agree he's a delightful little big character. Adam's mom was telling me about him and we were reminiscing about how sweet he was, specifically how he loved to be pet and get love. He would always want to jump up on the couch when Adam's mom... Continue Reading →
When Adam and I were moving from NC, we had to put the ol' cattos upstairs in the bathroom so we could move things out of the apartment without fear of escaping renegades. Since we have a lot of junk, the poor guys were upstairs for quite some time. When we took a break and... Continue Reading →
Adam's parents had a cat named Bagley. They rescued him when he was a little baby kitten and he pretty much never stopped growing from that day forward. He was in the mid-30 pound range at his best. Yikes, Bagley. He didn't really overeat; he was just big-boned I think. Though Bahley literally had a... Continue Reading →
You may remember how great Duncan was at pillow running. Well, he's taking these talents to another level with glass running. He's really good.
Firstly, this is one of my favorite shows of all time. I love them. This is from Flight of the Conchords, a show that was on HBO and ran for 2 seasons. They are actually a music group and play one on the show. The basic premise is that they moved from New Zealand... Continue Reading →
So I was busy and forgot to post a drawing and am not close to home....so I had to improvise. My friends Sarah and Dave have a brand new baby girl Anna who is also secretly a cat. Here she is. We are hanging out. Meow. Sorry this is so weird but that's all I've... Continue Reading →
I know I posted the video to this already, but I loved it so much I had to draw a picture of it. The lady looks a little more crazy here than she really does, but I kind of like it.
All that must be said about this is.... --> this. And I had to watch it a billion times when I first saw it. And I laughed a TON.
Now, this is going to be a post mostly based on assumptions but go with me here, and sorry to my friend for maybe making some stuff up. I have a friend who went to live in southern California (true) and decided to just live on a boat instead of getting an apartment (true). He... Continue Reading →
You may or may not be familiar with the internet meme of Keyboard Cat...but you should. It's so funny and has spawned some weird and hilarious videos. First...a little detail about Keyboard Cat can be found here. If you want a video here is the original one but I highly recommend looking at some of... Continue Reading →
I've been saving this since last year....that's super hard for me to do, so you should appreciate this, folks. Anyway, Adam might have had a little too much fun last year and may have ended up laying on our kitchen floor hiccuping like a cartoon drunk. Hahah.
You may remember Gabby, who liked wearing a vest. Well, she also thinks she's a cat. Sarah and Dave have this loveseat type chair and Gabby has claimed the top of it as her little perch....like a cat. And she's like a 50 pound dog.
I have gotten my mom into P90X this last month (and she's just starting her second month, woo!). It is definitely a hard workout and requires a coach. When Adam and I did it, we had Duncan. Here with my mom, we don't have Duncan, but we DO have Sabrina. But she's not quite a... Continue Reading →
