cute noms

I *crunch crunch* just think *crunch crunch* that these might *crunch crunch* be the cutest snack *crunch crunch* on the market. Have we had a poll about this yet?!
(notice the mamegoma seal and cubees staring hugrily from the background) (also notice the bunny butt on the top of the box; my absolute favorite part of the packaging. "gently tug ears to open")

Tufted titmouse

Totally cute...and here is some info..."These birds have grey upperparts and white underparts with a white face, a grey crest, a dark forehead and a short stout bill; they have rust-coloured flanks. The song is usually described as a whistled peter-peter-peter. They make a variety of different sounds, most having a similar tone quality."

Ruby-Crowned Cute-let

The Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula) is a very small songbird of the Kinglet family Regulidae native to North America. Both the male and female have olive-grey plumage with a thin black bill and short tail. The male bears a red crown which gives the bird its common name.Their song is a melodious warble and fairly loud, but at least in winter habitat, the most common vocalization is a wren-like scolding "jdit", often repeated several times in close succession. On breeding grounds, they sometimes deliver a prolonged and monotonous "chirrup" call that can be heard for long distances.

I was meandering around the Morton Arboretum (gift shop) last week when I first stumbled upon some prints by the artist Charley Harper. His geometric nature themed works are just delightful. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Have a cow...really...

My sister brought back a Moofia for me from the comic-con in San Diego. The package is blind, and I received the non-fat half and half bottle. I think Tokidoki (cactus dog)is behind this one. Moo!
