Baby Shower

My Rare One and I attended a baby shower this summer. It was a lovely affair and we enjoyed seeing the new baby. We gave the wee one a selection of onesies as our gift. Classy onesies, you understand. Not like these ones --

Speaking of class, I think this onesie must belong to Kate and William's new Prince George --

Your baby, on the other hand, will have to work for a living so he'd better get used to the wage-slave onesie right off the bat --

The hostesses at the shower we attended laid on a nice spread of food for the guests. Someone made an absolutely gorgeous cake. Very tasteful in all senses of the word. Again, not like the following.

Would you prefer the "moment of conception" cupcakes . . .

. . . or the "moment of birth" cake?

One Lovely Blog Award

Hugs 'n kisses are going out today to Leanna Henderson at Can We Have a New Witch, Ours Melted for giving me this blog award -- thanks so much, you rockin' chick! Just a reminder, everyone, that Leeanna is going to give a $100 Amazon Gift Card to whoever leaves Comment # 5000 on her blog by the end of 2013, so get over there and start leaving comments! The winner could be you!

Now I'm supposed to briefly tell you 7 things about myself. Okay, here's a list of the various types of pets I've had over the years:

1. Cats. Her Royal Highness must be listed first or else I'll find a surprise in my slipper at bedtime tonight. I also shared another cat with my ex, Big Bad Butch, but BBB got custody after we split.

2. Various rabbits. So adorable.

3. A hamster. Cute but a noisy little bastard at night.

4. Various dogs when I was a kid -- all boxers or collies.

5. I'm stretching the definition of "pet" now, but I babysat a budgie once. The budgie from hell. It would let itself out of the cage, fly around my apartment and poop down the curtains.

6. Well, since some of the previously-mentioned pets were multiples, I'm counting them here again.

7. Ditto. So sue me.

Now I'm supposed to pass this award on to 7 other bloggers. Lately I haven't been doing this with awards because a lot of people don't participate in these memes anymore. But I'm going to do it this time because I want to introduce you to some worthy new blogs I've started following. Check them out -- you may find them interesting too!

1. The Silver Bunny at The Silver Bunny

2. Dawna at Dawna Lee -- Because It Matters

3. Amanda Jillian B at Faerie Barista

4. LL Cool Joe at Joey's Pad

5. Gregory Urbano at Photographing Florida

6. Two Cottages and Tea at Two Cottages and Tea

7. Willow at Whiles of Willow

Hostility Issues -- We All Have Them

I'm afraid doing that last post on Vikings has aggravated my unfocussed general hostility issues caused by all the irritations of daily living. And I gotta get 'em outta my system! So stand back -- a bitchin' big burst of bellicose bilge is about to blow!

The Problem with Vikings

Vikings cause a lot of conflicted feelings. Oh sure, their little dragon-boat kiddy wagons are cute . . . .

And their pets are cute too.

Don't be fooled, however. Even the smallest Viking can be vicious.

Sometimes, though, Vikings and their gods can make good role models.

But then again, we all know you can't trust them around computers.

Yet they are occasionally chivalrous. Who can forget Techno Viking?

Generally speaking, however, it's best not to trust them. Even those with beautiful blue eyes like Ragnar Lothbrok.

Cats Are Better Than Dogs

Hello, Her Royal Highness the cat here. Today I have a very eye-opening video for you which proves beyond all reasonable doubt that cats are better than dogs. And just to clarify things in anticipation of any unjustified objections -- I'm not a prejudiced feline, oh no, not at all. In fact, some of my best friends are dogs. But facts are facts, humans. Cats rule, dogs drool. Watch and learn!

Apology and Legal Disclaimer from Debra She Who Seeks: I am completely mortified by HRH's display of cat supremacist ideology. Please let me reassure you, dear readers, that nothing contained in my blog today is meant to apply to any of the brilliant and lovely dogs whom I have met in the blogosphere via your blogs. HRH will be sent for immediate re-education on this topic.

Squeeeee! So Cute!

Look at this teeny-tiny miniature gingerbread house! Isn't it wonderful? It was made by an Israeli artist, Shay Aaron, who specializes in crafting miniature food items. You can see more of her amazing work by clicking here.

Busy as a Bee!

Hi everyone! I've got a million billion gazillion things to get done in August so I'll only be posting sporadically this month. Plus the posts will be heavy on pictures and light on words -- sort of like the last few, LOL! You'll notice that my commenting schedule will be sporadic as well. But I'll visit when time allows!

And I know what you're wondering. Yes, yes, I do look exactly like this in a bathing suit.
