In Case You Live Under a Rock...



...and considering I really haven't flogged this properly this year (because, you know, I've had nothing else going on around here), today is the very lastest day to sign up for Rhinebeck Blogger Bingo 2007, at least if you would like to be a square. We shall once again be Bingo Headquarters, in Barn 39, booth D. There is a map of the fairgrounds right here.

I get to be Paul Lynde! So your center square is practically a freebie, which means you absolutely must join in the fun. And come get a look at my kilt, under which I shall be wearing boxers. I know what kind of people you all are.

Oh, And Another Thing

Guess who's getting a new home. David came by the clinic this morning to meet him. He (David)had four preconditions for this adoption:

  • David gets to name him.
  • No more cats are to be added to the household.
  • No dog for "a while".
  • I have to let my parents know.


These are all quite reasonable and very much in line with my thoughts on the matter. The last one is important because I have two girl kitties who currently live with my parents. My father, in particular, would be glad to see either or both of them come live with us, but the whole point of this adoption is to have a buddy for Tolo to take his (very unwanted) attention away from Sylvie, because this is Sylvie on one of her good days better moments. Bringing either one of my neurotic girls into the house with Little Miss Sybil Sylvie would not help the situation. As long as the news is accompanied by delivery of several large bags of cat food, though, I think it will be accepted without too much fuss.

I don't actually live under a rock, but have been hiding under one about Rhinebeck... not for me this year, so sad. SOMEbody will have to take pics of this man in his kilt, eh? Mel, have a great time, you surely deserve it.

Carol said...

Um, could they at least be crotch-less boxers?

Paul Lynde to block, please...

Boxers!? That's not authentic at all! How disappointing.

Hey - I know you guys work with Alpaca with a Twist, do you sell any of their fiber? I need some "Handspinner's dream" in the charcoal color. Like a pound and a half or so, enough to make a sweater. I got a 7 oz bundle a while ago and I love it. Now I need more.

"I know what kind of people you all are."

I have NO idea what you mean by that statement..... LOL!

Julie said...

Sadly, no Rhinebeck for me :-( Knowing that you'll be there in your kilt makes me even sadder.

You haven't flogged it? No wonder it's talking back!

Joe said...

Love the new kitty...hope he's a great buddy for all of you.

As for the boxers, couldn't you at least go with a jock strap?

Boooo! No Rhinebeck for Sheepie. I didn't even try for it this year. It just wasn't going to be in the cards. Someday...

Congrats on the new addition to the household! That is one lucky little feller. Isn't it interesting how some creatures just somehow manage to find the right home?

It was meant to be. Hopefully he's recovering well from his injuries and fits in with the rest of the household.

So who of the blocks is Charlie Weaver? ;)

Marilyn said...

If you're Paul Lynde, then I have to be Rose Marie. OK? I've signed up again this year, square that I am.

I promise you, I WILL be seeing you and David this year, without fail. Look out, boys. And I can't wait. One week. Yes, thank yew Jeezus.

What we need now is a picture of the kilt. So, it's finished, is it? I was worried about your reduction in the amount of fabric -- it's that sense of power-in-reserve, I feared, which makes the kilt-beholder go all trembly. So -- a picture is needed.

Have a great time at Rhinebeck.
