Announcing the arrival of Baby Hamster!

I said goodbye to Lucy this afternoon. It was time. She went peacefully.   She was a good girl.

The lovely piece I commissioned from @kristof65's wife arrived safely!            EDIT: This picture doesn't show it, but some of the glass pieces are iridescent.

So apparently one of my new hires has a nickname among the other instructors. 'Viking'.

 

Yes she is blonde. She's also tiny. Tinier than my 5 foot lol self. She earned this nickname when she had a baby and showed up for training the next day.

So Murphy escaped the world of the Dresden Files and entered ours? This could explain some things....

Spoiler

Okay, so Murphy never had a child in the books, but the whole tiny, blond and fierce, with the Viking angle...who else could this be?

So apparently wine or beer is dangerously bad for cats...like chocolate is for dogs. But worse. 

 

No worries, soaking the cat in beer is not the same as giving them a beer to drink. He appears to have forgiven me though. That or he is just biding his time and plotting some sort of elaborate revenge.

He probably smelled better than Loki did last night! Unlike your poor, innocent wee cat, he stole most of the cheesy crust on a pan of macaroni cheese and had a predictably stinky/foul reaction. We ended up giving him a bath. Thankfully he's a good boy, let us clean him and then went and picked a fight with his brother. He's now sleeping it off after getting some paste from the vet.

Pizza Hut has come up with a pizza with tapioca pearls, brown sugar milk tea sauce, marshmallows and mozzarella cheese.

 

Of course, I will buy it. 

 

I will post about it in a day or two. 

 

And I thought the KFC Chicken and Gravy pizza they're touting in these parts sounded bad...

Coffee...

 

Hamsterling decided to skip his first nap this morning, and spend the entire time crying. :zombie: He's finally down. I pray this nap lasts more than 20ish minutes.

 

makes you wish chloroform was safer

 

Hope you get a long break to get some time to yourself

My daughter will not live down her “stomachs” explanation. See, she had a dinner stomach and a dessert stomach. The dinner stomach was full but the dessert stomach was empty, so she needed dessert!

I did something similar when I was a kid. Once I had eaten everything I liked, I would say my stomach was "this full", putting my hand far above my head.

And then dessert would roll around and I'd say I was hungry again, but no, I had to eat my veggies first... <_<

I'm also very curious. I'd certainly try it, but I'm not sure I'd pay for the... privilege.

I've let my friend know about this, since she's crazy about bubble tea. I look forward to hearing about the experience.

Also, I'm here to ruin your day. This is one of the most unsettling, disgusting things I've ever seen. And I thought I liked sharks.

I'm sorry.

 

I am in a decent mood and so I will not click on your link. I'd like to finish the day without wanting to ask WWTDD.*
