Tourists in T-shirts

Marvin emailed me at work today about the Kate Spade bag, so I guess he IS still reading this blog. That little trick didn't work very well. And for those of you who wanted to see the Kate Spade bag I supposedly bought for $425, okay, see, I didn't really charge a Kate Spade bag on my credit card. I think I have 47 cents on my credit card. Is there a really good sale on Kate Spade bags I don't know about?

What I was doing, see, was lying about purchasing said bag in order to get Marvin's goat, because once he READ that I had done this dastardly deed he would yell at me, but what I was doing was seeing how many days passed before he read my blog. Are you seeing my plan now? So there is no picture to show you because the bag is not real.

In LA, there was this garment district, and they sold fake Kate Spade bags, except some of them had labels that read "Kade Spate." That always killed me.

So, today I tried to photograph pictures of my animal companions, to very limited avail.

Butts

Here's my feline-American and canine-American above. Do you think I'd make a fine photojournalist? I am good with the action sequences.

It's THEIR fault. They won't sit still for half a millisecond.

This is actually a rare shot of Ruby and Winston together. It is rare because they do not like each other, and those of you who have cats can probably see that Winston is .7 seconds from hauling off and smacking Ruby, as he is wont to do. Then Ruby will whine and run away and pee on the half an area rug we have exposed.

Our house is the least-warm and inviting house you have ever been to, because we can't have area rugs, because Ruby pees on them. You have been to high-security prisons with more warmth than our rooms. Well, plus, you have to stand behind that glass wall to make phone calls.

I really need to tidy up the fridge.

Oh! And yesterday I said I wished someone from New Zealand was reading and someone wrote in from…NEW ZEALAND! It was obviously my moment to get my wish, right there. How cool are we, hobnobbing with New Zealanders?

I guess that's all I have to tell you. I am going to go see The Reader tonight. There is nothing to top off a day of proofreading like going to watch a movie about somebody reading something. I am hoping this movie wipes the "Free Credit Report Dot Com" song out of my head, because it has been in there for two days and I am driving my coworkers insane, walking around singing it in the workplace.

Free credit report dot com. I should've seen it comin' at me like an atom bomb. WHY AM I SINGING THAT? I CAN'T STOP!

  1. Totally just made up a lie on my own blog to see if my husband is reading. I guarantee it’ll be DAYS before I hear from him about it. DAYS.
    Crap. Now I’ve got that stupid song in my head. Thanks a lot.

  2. Is Marvin going with you? He’d like it as Kate Winslet is frequently nude in the film. Oh, and there is an element that….well, you’ll find out.

  4. Love the wallpaper. Your home looks cozy to me. I have area rugs with big chunks out of the sides from bored puppies. They pull all the fluff and squeakers out of their toys and then eat rugs!
    Is it the photo or does the gray cat have a freakishly small head?

  5. Why does Lula look like she just ate a book and know you are going to find out but you just haven’t yet? Why do the cats looke like THEY know that Lulah ate a book and are dying to tell you about it but your not listening to their catspeak. Maybe they have a blog somewhere they write while your at work and they are upset because you aren’t reading it.

  6. Hey, you do what you have to do when you have animals, if that means no rugs, then no rugs. Kind of like having toddlers and putting every little thing up so they can’t reach it. They are our fur babies. My uncle, who is not an animal lover, says they are babies that never grow up, hep, that’s true.

  10. So, did you sing that song throughout the movie? Here, I’ll help you stop that song…
    Here’s the story,
    Of a lovely lady,
    Who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
    All of them had hair of gold,
    Like their mother,
    The youngest one in curls.
    There now, all better. You’re welcome.

  11. Well, I’ve got that remake of “What would you do if I sang out of tune?” song stuck in my head, and by stuck I mean I’m singing it out of tune. My children learned to talk so they could tell me to stop singing.
    My real name is Ruby. So was every other female in my family which is why I’ve never been called that. I am also allergic to cats. And my house can out stark yours anyday. I’m assuming you have 1st hand furniture at least somewhere on the premises…..

  12. OK I’m totally a blog stalker, I think I’ve only posted twice and once was to tell you that Lula’s collar was upside down… and today I’m posting to tell you that you have a bazillion of errors in your post today, but maybe you meant to do that… Hmm… I really AM a positive person despite my comment history on your blog! 🙂

  13. Yeah, I read The Reader and it got on my nerves. I didn’t realize it was a movie now. Hmm.
    I don’t have area rugs because my dog eats them too, Bronwen. I also don’t have a whole lot of underwear left that the dog hasn’t chewed on at least a little. Too much information?

  15. This has nothing to do with what you posted. I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to tell you this. I had a dream that I met you! You came over to my house and hung out with my family.
    I figure you are the kind of person who wouldn’t be creeped out if one of your readers dreamed about you. After all, you’re like a mini-celebrity to us!

    “It’s a small world after all…It’s a small world after all….” Maybe that song will replace the freecreditreport.com guys – though I have to say, at least their commercial is entertaining!
    And do we get an extra post if we proofread the proofreader’s message and find errors? 🙂
