I had taken this last week when it was a little warmer (above freezing even!) and had wanted to post it before now but have been caught up in a whirlwind of stuff going on … details to come, I promise.
Anyways, here’s a good sign that Spring is near: I’ve been seeing my little favorite reptiles out and about around the grounds outside the house, and heard the first tree frog calls of the year just this past weekend. Thankfully, this cute little guy sat still long enough for me to run to get the camera and snap off a few shots:
I don’t know about y’all, but I am SO looking forward to griping about the heat! Stay warm, everyone!
You know, Hobie had toys and loved them. She destroyed a few in her lifetime, but those took months, even years. For Bruce, it can be a few hours or a few days to destroy a toy. Needless to say, Mr. Destroyer of Toys isn’t getting many new ones and I’ll either patch up what he has or make new ones from my craft supplies. XD
However, what he HAS had bought for him, I’m reviewing on a new blog: Is it Bruce-proof?
I’ve said ever since I adopted him that anyone who could make a toy that is “Bruce-proof” would make a killing. This blog will review the toys that have so far failed to make the cut, as well as various other pet products I’ve bought. I only have 3 reviews up right now, but have about 8 more that I’m currently documenting/writing.
Feel free to follow if you’re so inclined. ^_^
I’d like y’all to meet the newest addition to my family. Bruce, meet the Internet. Internet, meet Bruce Wayne Faulk.
Click the above image for a photoset of images.
He is about 5 months old. He was originally named Bandit. His mother was a Siamese rescued from a shelter in Tuscaloosa while very pregnant, and she and her kittens were fostered in Birmingham by Have A Heart Animal Rescue. The staff were absolutely wonderful and quick to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend them if you are looking to add a new furry member to your family!
He started answering to “Bruce” right away, and acclimated really quickly to the new surroundings of my home, as well as to Jessie. He’s very affectionate, but not quite a lap kitty. He constantly wants attention or to be held, but only stays for a few minutes before going off to play, hehehe. He’s surprisingly well-behaved for a kitten — except, of course, when it comes to meal times. He’s a little ninja when it comes to my food, so I have to keep a sharp eye on him! LOL
I haven’t quite had him 3 weeks, but he’s without a doubt the best Christmas present I could have ever received. (My mother helped pay for everything from his adoption fees to food and other supplies as my present.) He’s established himself as a member of the family, and Jessie and I couldn’t be happier!
He doesn’t sit still for photos so I’ll keep working on getting better pictures, but I was able to get him sitting still enough for a few minutes playing a game on my iPad and recorded it:

Sorry y’all, I’m a day late. I’d like to say it was a blackout in protest of SOPA/PIPA, but the truth is I have still been sick and went to see the doctor, got some stronger meds, and spent most of the day in bed. It turns out I have a sinus and ear infection, which is why I couldn’t get over the gunk. But I’m feeling MUCH better today!
I have a couple funnies to share, the first being from I Has a Hotdog:
And this one is apparently a preview for Volkswagen’s upcoming Superbowl ad:

Howdy, y’all! Today’s funnies are courtesy of my pal Cookie:
An elderly Irishman is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and is asked where he is going at this time of night.
The man replies, “I am on me way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on me body, as well as me smoke’n and stay’n out late.”
The officer then asks, “Really? and who might be give’n ya that lecture at this time of the night?”
The man replies, “That would be me wife.”
Now, I don’t know about y’all, but I would suggest this hunting dog find a new line of work:
This week’s edition starts off with this one from Adam on Facebook:
“What do we want?”
“A cure for ADHD!”
“When do we want it?”
These are a few of my favorites from I Can Has Cheezburger and I Has a Hotdog:
This week’s edition starts off with this one from my buddy Steve on Facebook:
Some doctor on tv this morning said the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started. So I looked around my house to see things I’d started and hadn’t finished. I finished off a bottle of Vodka, a bodle of Baileys, a botle of wum, a pock of Prungles, 1/2 chesecke an a boc a choclez. Yu haf no idr how bludy fablus I feeel now. Plaese sned dhis orn to dem yu fee ar in ned ov iennr piss.
There, I feel better now. Don’t you?
This one is from Cookie:
I was in the restroom at Kmart the other day and someone had stuck this sticker on the hand drier unit.
This one I’ve seen on several of the LOL/animal sites I frequent and is too cute not to share
