when are you free to take some tea with me?

One of my favorite cute characters is Tea Dog, with his little sad face and tea leaf ears. But, his toys are hard to find. Apparently he has a DS game, though... and look! It's almost christmas!

Bolt to the theaters

Could Bolt be in the running for cutest movie of 2008? How could you go wrong with an obese hamster, adorable dog with Harry Potter-esque lightening bolt plastered on his side, and a reluctant cat accomplice? I read a rave review this weekend, has anyone out there seen it yet?

karma chameleon

Is it blasphemous to add a palm tree to a mini zen garden? Some have said that I will be reincarnated as a cockroach for doing it. The temptation is too strong, though. I think I may be mixing religious philosophies as well...

Appa is a flying buffalo from "Avatar". He belongs to Aang, who is the avatar. I have been watching each episode of this show one by one...and Appa is missing. The sand-wind-people took him and sold him. And I watched in to Monday night, hoping he would be returned or that Aang would find him...but nothing. I am a little distressed...

me and julio down by the schoolyard

This is my friend Julio (named after the Paul Simon song). He lives in some vegetation by our apartment and comes out a couple of hours a day to sniff around and eat stuff. Is he a woodchuck or a muskrat?

Our boss is scared of squirrels. I feel bad laughing since I am afraid of weird things too, but come on! Squirrels? While he was out of the office yesterday we decided to play a prank on him. We made a HUGE print of this picture (found on google images) and taped it over his computer monitor. I hope he doesn't decide to get revenge someday...

Golden Ratio of Cute

In mathematics and the arts, two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio between the sum of those quantities and the larger one is the same as the ratio between the larger one and the smaller. The golden ratio is approximately 1.6180339887.

At least since the Renaissance, many artists and architects have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio—especially in the form of the golden rectangle, in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter is the golden ratio—believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing. Mathematicians have studied the golden ratio because of its unique and interesting properties.

WAR: cute vs. super

I received this picture from my sister the other night:

It seems to be your basic struggle between Hulk and Littlest Pet Shop turtle.

I responded with a surprise-attack battle.

Then, WAR ensued.

May the cute be victorious.

This gorgeous kitten is one of eight that was abandoned by an irresponsible owner at Prairie Fest. They were left in a wire cage with a sign that read "Kittens FREE take one" They are now at a vet clinic for lack of anywhere else to go. They are sweet, people-friendly and social. Won't you give this kitten a chance at a happy life with a loving owner? They deserve only the best after all they have been through. Adoption fee $100 includes; spay/neuter, shots up to the point of adoption, worming, flea treatment and treatment for ear mites. Please call Lisa 630-365-9100.

etsy bitsy cute

I found these little guys on Etsy, but have since lost track of the name of the seller. So we'll just enjoy the adorable plushy felty cuteness for now. Maybe they'll bring us some cheer during the impending Flash Flood Watch.
