Last Post of 2007

Can you freakin' believe it, Peeps?

It's already the last day of 2007.

Remember when we grew up thinking that 2007 would be the time where we drove flying cars and had robotic maids?

We've been lied to, my Peeps.

Our Elders spoketh falsehoods to us.


This is almost as bad as when we found out there was no Santa Claus! knew that, right?!



Seriously now, Folks. Fill your glasses and let's toast to the upcoming New Year of 2008...may it be as fantabulous as you all are.

*clinks my glass to yours*

I took MiniWarrior to see Santa tonight.

We parked by my work downtown and took the Max Train up to the City Mall.

MiniWarrior told Santa:

"I hope I don't get coal in my stocking this year"

Santa HO HO HO'd and told him, "No. No coal, this year."

(I'd been using the threat of "Santas got his eyeball on you and will give you coal if you're bad. hehehe)

MiniWarrior was greatly relieved.

He informed Santa his wish this year was for "Hermit Crabs".

(I had talked him out of a turtle and frog as they are too much work to care for)

Santa told him he would see if he could catch one at the North Pole and bring it to him.

(this after a sly look at me and a nod of approval from me--good Santa. There will be an extra cookie laid out for you, Fatboy. The good kind. Not the left over stale ones that no one else wants to eat, either.)

We plan on putting a Hermit Crab habitat complete with a pair of crabs--under the tree Christmas morning.

He's going to flip out with excitement!

Good times. Good times!

p.s. Notice the green thing in MiniWarriors hand? That's a rubber Preying Mantis. ha ha ha.

A Christmas Gift...

I filmed a little bit of the Christmas ships on the water for all you blog peeps to enjoy.

MiniWarrior is in the background making his war noises and complaining at me for shh'ing him so you could hear the Christmas music the ships were blaring out. :)

To Sleep, Perchance To Dream

Kat sleep remedy:

A shot of tequila (to numb the google brain)
Hello Kitty PJ's and a pink blanket (cuz I have pink needs)
A cushy bed (fer my achin bones)
Lord V reading to me in a soft Southern accent (cuz it was a book about the South and he's fantabulous)
A furry dog and cat snuggling close (purrrr purrrr)

I have been unable to sleep these past two nights.
The most Zzz's I've managed to catch have been sporadic kat naps that are filled with busy and strange dreams.

For those who suffer from chronic insomnia--I'm feeling your pain.

It's a very weird feeling to feel so exhausted that I just want to close my eyes...but when I do my brain clicks into google mode and starts downloading information that spins in an exhausting loop.

I think I've caught a Holiday virus. I need to delete the HO HO HO Trojan so I can defrag before my hard drive burns out.

Tis The Season...

For Christmas Ships!

We bundled up and headed out to the waters edge to view the parade of Christmas ships.

I was waving and whooping at the ships as they passed by when I heard my name being called from behind.

I turned and there were our friends and their kids, having come to enjoy the festival!

We stood like goons and waved and cheered as each ship paraded past us, then hustled off to our home to mugs of hot cocoa (for the kids) and snifters of Scotch (for the men) and Tequila (for us women).

I snapped a few pictures so you blog Peeps could enjoy the evening with us.

Grab a mug, glass or snifter and enjoy!

Come On In, The Coffee's On

I realized this morning that it's been awhile since I've sat down and had a chat with you all.

*sets out plates and coffee cups and doles out slices of coffee cake*

So, how's everyone been?

Got all your Christmas shopping done, yet?

I've finished except for the odds and ends that I'll snap up along the way to fill in the extra spaces in Christmas stockings.

It's crazy out there, Peeps. People rushing to and fro. Driving like maniacs, not thinking cuz their heads are filled with Holiday plans.

I know this to be true as the other day I stopped for gas in Oregon.

Oregon has a law that you can't pump your own gas (this law was created after a man in the 70's poured gasoline on himself at a gas station and set himself on fire).

So, I was sitting waiting for my tank to be filled. My guy had gone into the store to pay for it. I saw him walk back and give something to the gas station attendant then said "thanks" and the attendant walked away. My guy climbed into my truck, I spoke with him for a minute, then turned on my engine and proceeded to drive away.

Someone honked their car horn. I looked to see if I had accidentally cut someone off but I continued to move forward.

People started yelling and waving their hands at me. I turned and looked at my guy all puzzled like, he shrugged in response...the gas station attendant zoomed over and rapped on my driver window.

Apparently, he was still pumping gas in my truck!



So. I had to backup and sit there like an idiot while men shot me "dumb blond" looks followed by the patronizing shake of their heads.


My guy was having a lot of fun teasing me over my embarrassment until I shot back with his getting an embarrassing speeding ticket over Thanksgiving weekend with his parents in the car...lame I know--but a girls gotta use what ammo she has at hand. Which he then countered with a listing of my speeding tickets I've acquired since he's known me.

I countered with, "Yeah but I never got one with my parents in the car"...which he then topped with "Yeah but I've never been put in Time Out by a Cop"...

Hmmph. Yeah, well he got me there.


More coffee, anyone?

Throw your hands in the air and say it with me now, Peeps....

Wild Christmas Beast, Captured!

I have achieved the (near) impossible.

I have captured the wild Christmas beast in his lair.

The Great Belly Of The Beast

Steely Slitted Eyes Peer From Inside The Lair

Guido-the-cat Is Not Amused At The Intrusion Of His Lair

He Sets Off To Investigate The Intruder

"Who Dareth To Intrudeth Uponeth My Laireth?"

"Ah. Tis You, The Bringereth Of My Food Clumpage. Thou Shalt Liveth."

Nest Steal~age!

I gathered my favorite pillows, fluffed them and arranged them on my sofa nest in preparation of flopping down and indulging in a feast of reading.

I went to get my book, came back, and found...

A Nest Thief!

Contrary Guido~ness

I'm trying to capture of a picture of Guido-the-cat laying in his lair...but he's obviously wise to the plan and has evaded me so far.

He did however, manage to scare the heck outta me this morning!

I was in the bathroom floofing my hair when he (apparently) threw himself full Guido-belly onto the door and sent it crashing open.

He swished in with a royal saunter while I clutched my hairbrush to my wildly thumping heart.

Dang cat.

budwieser horse fart

This video had me laughing so hard I squirted tears, Peeps. TEARS!!

The Lair of Guido Goodness

Guido-the-cat is happy.

His colorful lair is back.

He resides beneath the Christmas tree in full cat belly glory.

The occasional flicker of the tip of his tail wafts beneath a low hanging branch.

A paw peeks out in a content cat stretch then retreats into the Christmas lair.

I shall attempt to capture a snapshot of the wild christmas beast residing in his lair and post it at a later date.
