And here they are, bask in their glory:
Goodness gracious! I really have been busy.
I’m telling you, after the Superstars dust settles I must clean my house this weekend. Dust bunnies and packing peanut crumbs are littering the entire place. This is silly, but I usually only clean stuff when I’m perturbed about something. Sometimes it’s because I’m mad at myself for being such a slob; other times, it’s something totally unrelated. My husband gets a little worried when I start scrubbing things. I haven’t had much to be miffed off about lately, which is a good thing, but it also means my house is messier than it’s been in a while.
And these damn cats, if only I could get them to drag a broom across the floor and help out. But no, all they want to do is lay around and demand food. I have no leverage with them. I can’t withhold their food to get them to comply, they wouldn’t understand. And they’re not scared of me at all. I can put my arms straight into the air and run at them and babble like the boogeyman and they respond with a purr and a yawn. The reason I’ve chosen to commit myself to the servitude of these ungrateful, irresponsible beasts escapes me at the moment… oh, yes, right. It’s because they’re CUTE. And they supposedly lower my blood pressure. I’m not sure I buy that. Yelling at fuzzy varmints to get out of the kitchen sink every 30 minutes isn’t exactly conducive to rest and relaxation. But whatever. They’re CUTE.
Speaking of adorable varmints, check out our friends in Australia, they’re serving their little Australian possum friend a candle lit Valentine’s Day supper.
Isn’t that just precious!? Can you believe the excellent table manners? I wish the American possums were that civilized. Hell, I wish American people were that civilized. The last time I saw a possum walking down the street I said hi to it and it turned around and gave me a dirty look. I felt lucky to be inside the safety of my car.
Anyway, the guy half of that possum feeding couple is also a talented musician. Check out his rendition of The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins. This is one of my favorite things in the whole world. The hip geeks among us will surely appreciate this one. (You might give it the adult once-over before sharing it with the little ones, though.)
