The Dark Side

Really, we can't get our design people to come up with something a bit more seasonal? Oh wait, it's Halloween season, isn't it? I guess we can file this one under "Be careful what you wish for…in the event that the humans read your mind…especially if they are not particularly good mind readers". I know, that seems like kind of a long title for anything.

I am sure that my body language gives off an "I am a proud pup" kind of vibe. However, it is because I am, in fact, a pup! I shih-tzu you not that a proud peacock is not at all what I was suggesting.
 Do I look amused?
 Or do I look angry? Like Lord Vader angry?
What? You can't take me seriously because my dark helmet is a poor fit? Well, what if I brought in some back up troops, or troopers?
I have a sneaking suspicion that they were mocking me under those helmets. Unacceptable! I find their lack of help disturbing. 

I was relieved to see those costumes get put back in the bag to be returned. Phew, but why did a new bag come back into the house?
Where the hell is Obi-Wan? He is clearly my only hope!
Go ahead, caption it up! Don't forget to mention the demented princess too though!
What a relief, another Halloween has passed with minimal humiliation. WHAT?!?! Halloween isn't until tomorrow?

Creeping back to the random

So I was a bit stuck in the muck, a dud in the mud if you will, lost in the sauce, a twit in the...okay, I think we all get the point. Wherever I could be found figuratively, blogging literally was not where I was. Autumn arrived and I just wasn't feeling it. My birthday was coming, and something was missing. It could've been the dark chocolate m&m's I put in my peanut m&m jar. (No offense, Green!)
Maybe it was some other force in the universe that was messing with me. I kept hoping for a sign, something to tell me whether or not I should just close up shop on the blog, or an indication that the side of forty-five closer to fifty was not to be feared. I waited. The weekend came and I ate cupcakes and pounded mega peanut m&m's (with more chocolate and bigger peanuts per piece).

I started to feel a little bit inspired. There were some pictures kicking around that I had been taking of random this and that, but none of them quite spoke to me. There were coupons to be cut, as I lounged on the couch Sunday morning. Crap I don't need, brands I don't use....WAIT! What is this? Who is she? Be still my autumn cooled heart! Daisy...oh Darling Daisy, certainly you are the sign I have been waiting for...
…the creepy monkey I have been longing for. I must say that you arrived a little late this year, or maybe I just shirked my scissor-wielding duties? It doesn't matter though because you are here now, and possibly more beautifully creepy than the other RealTouch vinyls who have come before.* "Look closely to admire the soft tufts of hand-applied hair and eyelashes"...oh, I am! In fact, I cannot tear myself away from those eyes, those eyes are staring directly into my soul!

Sure, I tried to redirect myself in order to appropriately Hail Cleo-Cat-Tra...
...but her shiny gold accents held no power. I gave a cursory glance at St. Nicholmouse...
...but it was my daughter who had to steer me back to point out his creepy toothed grin. Still, we both knew it was Daisy who had all of the magic.

Thanks for coming back to visit! Hopefully, this is the jumpstart I needed to get back and go with the flow...
...OH MY GOSH KOTEX! You totally ruined that phrase for me!

*I took a quick peek for some of the past creepy monkey posts, but alas, they were hiding. I fear if I wait any longer, this won't get posted. I think most of you have been hanging around here long enough to remember the likes of the TuTu Cute, Eloise and Bouncing Balika. For anyone else, I will make it up to you eventually.

Pet Peeved

What. The. Hell. 

I realize I get what I pay for, but this lack of posting nonsense is unacceptable. It was bad enough I had to share space with her random what-not. The clutter!

Wait, what's this? More to the point, who is this?
And he brought me a fancy college bandana? I know I look distracted (and handsome), but I have not forgotten that it is clearly time to start looking for a new scribe. 
This isn't the last you'll hear about OH MY GOSH MY BOY IS HOME!!!! Go Tigers!

Living Room

I have to admit that I am sort of impressed that you have actually stuck to your plan to do this thing every week.
I can't believe you doubted me. Seriously, how long have you seen me wait for a piece of whatever you're eating? I do not give up easily-
Or go away quietly.
I'll ignore that, and move on with an update on my collection...
It is coming along nicely, thanks for asking...
I am even branching out from my fall decor...

Hey, where are you?
I love the living room! It's the one place in the house that is free of clutter and nobody else seems to know exists, so I can…wait, what the...
Yes, go on, I am nearly sold on this room.
What are you doing in here?
Um, living?
Foz, it totally defeats the purpose of my alone time if you are in here!
Well, at least I have my comfortable little chair that…FOZ!
I got my pillow and blanket here first, so just move it along there. Yeah, this stink eye is for you!
Grumble, grumble…perfectly good chair…grumble…why does he look at me like that
Just keep walking, maybe there is a closet or something you can claim.
