Follow Friday – So Fashionable

5 Aug

Cat-butt Photobomb

Oh, nothing, just dressing up and looking fabulous so we can go outside and do some water painting and play with our dollar store chairs. Same thing we (happily) do every day.

We briefly allowed Zorro, our indoor-only 25-lb cat, to join us outside in the backyard provided I could supervise him. I didn’t think he could escape given the fact that some days he can’t even land a jump up on the kitchen counter. Zorro is a Maine Coon, a cat with short legs, a long body, and a girth that puts Cocker Spaniels to shame.  As a breed they are notoriously bad jumpers, so I thought he would stay safely ensconced in our backyard.

The next thing I know, he’s managed to jump-climb up the corner area of the fence and is in danger of going over when Isobel shouts, “OH NO!” I run over and grab him while only about 30% of him is still in our yard, and inch by inch, I fought to pull him back in our yard.

He is no longer allowed outside until I can block that corner off. The Large Orange Ninja is grounded.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

badbanana I’m not lazy, but I’m not exactly willing to look up the word that means the opposite of that, either.

DoubleBerg426 Got a talkative friend named Ted? Be like, “Ted, you never shut up! You’re giving me a tedache!”

stevetweeters My wife can just look at her wine glass and I’ll go fill it up which is REALLY close to being telekinetic.

ohrebecca I can’t get behind Edible Arrangements. a) they use Papyrus and b) I can buy fruit at the grocery store. But mostly because of the former.

stevetweeters The best thing about tacos is they’re like eating loud hamburgers.

LIFECOACHERS It’s time to forgive yourself; everyone had bad hair in the 90’s.

TheBlackStar @TheRedQueen @exlibris honestly, if two armchairs fit in a yaris trunk, they probably aren’t worth owning.

muffpunch I’m sitting here and watching my cat furiously lick the couch. I don’t know what he’s on, but I think I want some of it.

thejohnblog Maybe the porn version, ‘Cowgirls And Asians’ will be better.

apodixis The good news is the cats really love the laxative we have to give them. The bad news is they’re going to rip it open and shit everywhere.

joeinverarity Dude, that horsefly has a total muffin thorax.

lemoneyes I’ve decided my debt crisis plan is going to include a couple of gallons of ice cream.

ApocalypseHow BREAKING: “I’m Just a Bill” Bill Asked to Explain Debt Negotiations in Song, Takes Own Life

trollprincess I’d like to join an actual tea party. Three five-yr-old girls pouring invisible tea for teddy bears have to be more mature.

azbado I really hope they don’t try any stupid gimmicks for Shark Week. Like, having a shark on a motorcycle, jumping over Fonzie, for instance.

SteveMartinToGo Apple has more cash than US government and has decided to implement a state and federal income iTax.

GeorgeTakei SAGITTARIUS: Stop trying to staple so many papers together. It won’t work even if you hit the stapler harder.

KeepingYouAwake For the record, people of the future who read Twitter as history, I felt like these computers were too slow too.

BtotheD Man, I wish it was 1997 right now. I have a great “Jesus is my PalmPilot” tweet that will never get realized.

scenesfromahat Whenever someone tries to tell you that “fugly” isn’t a word, look them square in the eyes and say, “It’s a portmanteau, you fugly bastard.”
