Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday! :)

How’s it going this morning? Tabs and I are just having some mommy and toygie time on the couch for a few minutes before El Hub and I go grab breakfast and coffee at Panera.

What’s a toygie, you may ask? Well, “toygie” is shorthand for “18-pound diva kitty supermodel.”

Here’s an example of it in everyday use:

“Hi, buddy! Hi, beauty. I love you, toygie-boo. Look at this Jabba on me! Yeah, we’re having mommy and toygie time… Mommy and toygie time…

Don’t bite. Don’t bite. DON’T BITE.”

In other news…guess who’s goin’ country tomorrow!? Yup, I’m heading to Nashville, Tennessee, also known as Music City, for a quick couple days to cover an event for Neutrogena. It’ll be my first time in “the home of country music,” so I’m very excited about it. Today I’m charging up all my gizmos and camera batteries to capture and share as much of the trip as possible.

Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it involves something fun. Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Talk to you soon.

Rise and shine, morning glory!

I love that phrase… :) I’ll tell you the story behind why I use it one of these days.

How did you sleep? Did you have any dreams? I don’t remember if I did last night. Sometimes I do, but last night is just a sleepy blur.

The sun is out this morning, but I don’t know how long it’ll last, so after I finish my French toast, I’m going for a long walk outside (yes, I’m brining cat treats).

Not much new to report. Last night I did see the new Captain America movie with El Hub and thought it wasn’t bad. Honestly, though, sometimes the superhero movies sort of merge together for me. I love sci-fi — you know that — but the Marvel comic themes generally stick to a handful of story lines. Vengeance, misunderstood hero, quest for power, greed, bizarre need to destroy the world in order to rebuild it anew.

Anywho, I hope you have a nice weekend lined up. I have some blog work to do (some BIG stuff happening next week), but I’ll try to spend some time outside. I do have to repair the damage the storm did to the garden on my deck.

Oh! And guess what? Some neighborhood birds totally destroyed the planter filled with cat grass seedlings for Tabs. I guess they found the seeds yummy.

Yeah, Tabs was none too pleased about that.

Good luck in the giveaway. Talk to you soon. :)

It’s that time again! Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. Happy caturday! :)

Goodness, it’s raining cats and frogs here this morning, and it looks like it rained all night. I have absolutely no problems with that, mind you, because the rain makes everything greener.

What did you do last night? Did you see any movies, go out to dinner, play any games? El Hub and I were going to go out to dinner or something but opted for pasta at home and a rental instead.

Uh…I watched Catching Fire. Again. For the third time.

I know! But I just love that movie (and the first Hunger Games) so much.

As for Divergent, well, it didn’t really do anything for me. To each her own, though, ya know what I mean? That one just wasn’t my cup o’ tea.

I hope you do something fun this weekend. If the weather cooperates, get out there and enjoy it.

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway, and don’t forget about The Walking Dead Twitter party Sunday night. I’d love to see you there.

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! It’s caturday. Do you know where your tubby tabby is?

No, really — do you know where Tabs is? Because I have know where he is right now. He usually gets up with me to beg for treats and lurvies, but I haven’t seen him this morning. He’s probably brooding somewhere, as cats are wont to do…

Cats are #1!How was your sleeps? Did you have any good dreams?

I remember having one about…something.

There was a baseball stadium involved, and I was working at a booth in the stadium promenade selling tchotchkes of some kind, although I can’t remember what they were right now… They might have been those big foam fingers. I’m not sure though. I just remember everything in the dream being very, very important, LOL!

In other news, cleaning today. I don’t want to, but I have to. I really have to straighten up my office because it’s getting to the point where I can’t walk from the door to the chair at my desk. After that, who knows? Maybe some deck gardening.

I picked up some cat grass seeds for Tabs and some radish seeds for El Hub this week, and I want to plant those.

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Talk to you soon. :)
