the German language is NOT the language of love

I admit this is in questionable taste, but I also think it is quite funny.  What do you think?

cheese crackers on cats


Silliness reigns here today.  Polly is our Maine Coon cat. Inspired by another video I saw, I wondered how many cheese crackers we could place on her before she woke up and dumped them. I thought maybe 10 max. I thought wrong! My husband managed to place 34 crackers on her. We used Annie's Organic Cheddar Classics to keep everything wholesome. OMG, it was so much FUN! It was all I dreamed it would be. I laughed so hard after that I was relaxed enough for a good nights' sleep. When I asked my husband if it was good for him, too, he said, "Not as good as it was for you." You can see the smile on his face in the video, but sometimes he can be a party pooper. Believe me, he had as much fun as I did! How many crackers can you place on your kitty before it wakes up?
Music video and movie director Dave Meyers calls this video "hilarious."

More cats.

More silly items.

This is the original that inspired me.  Though it is shot vertically and the participants are very slow--they quit at 18--I do especially like the figernail polish.

revolution-themed photos

Travel bloggers were asked to submit a photo with a short description to a blog posting themed "revolution."  It is interesting to view the 27 thoughts on that topic.  My own image is among them at #24:

 

In 2010 hundreds of thousands red-shirt protesters gathered in Bangkok to demand that the current prime minister resign and that the former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, at that time a fugitive, be permitteded to return.  I saw this t-shirt stand through a bus window.
