Oh Fuuuuuuuuuuudgeeeeeeeeeee....

Only, that wasn't what was said that day... 

Dash: Hey, Dot, look! The Cavey have given us some chocolate fudge!!! 
I think they are trying to be friendly!

Dot: I guess... here... let me just cut into it a little more... 

Dash: Uh... Dot... are you cutting it wrong... something strange is happening... 

Dot: AAAAHHHH!!! No, dangit... this fudge is alive! It's dangerous! It's got sharp pointy teeth!!

Dot: Just back away slowly, Dash... back away and never look back.
Dash: Aww... but I really wanted some fudge.
Fudge: Grargle... 

Green Apple Cavey: Dude, that was awesome.
Red Apple Cavey: I know... if we had hands, I would so high-five you right now.

What's that thing?

Dash: What is this thing... I... don't know...
Green Apple Cavey: o_o

A note on desserts...

D: One would think that if such splendor 
as a Pumpkin Creme Brulee appeared,
then sharing would commence,
with those one loved and revered.

And when the Pumpkin Cake came out,
covered in ice cream and candied nuts,
The forks would be lovingly passed out,
so everyone could share in equal cuts.

One... would think.

H: Uh oh...

Gift Exchange?

Does anyone want to do a little bear gift exchange?

Nothing crazy, just some little presents for bears on bear blogs?

If anyone is interested, my email is:

This can't be good...

The wee Danby crew is wondering how they let themselves get into this predicament.
Dot and Dash are nowhere to be found.

Hey... Dot... Wake UP!

Dash: Psst, psst... Dot, Dot are you awake? Are you sleeping? Wake up, wake up... there are strange creatures on the desk!!!

D: Huh? *mumblemumble* ACK! Why are you so close?! *pushes Dash away* and... what are these strange creatures?

Dash: See! Look at em... all... Roly. That's just not right. They're suspect, I tell ya! SUSPECT!

D: I suspect that our suspicions will suspiciously lead us to suspect the deliciousness of these "Rolos" to be suspiciously delicious, thus further arousing our suspicions.

Dash: Huh? I just wanna roll em off the edge of the desk and be done with em. They creep me out.

I know, I know!

D: I have been terribly negligent... I admit. I think I still have jet lag... that trip to Spain was tiiiiring!!

This is Spain... there will be more where this came from... 

I do have to say, I was quite shocked when I got back... there seems to have been a new... addition. His name is Dash... say 'hello,' Dash...

Dash: Hello...

D: So, yeah, there's that guy. Not sure how I feel about him yet... he just kind of follows me around, looking at me with big googly eyes. 

Dash: *in awe* It's... Dot.... wooooooow.... so... AWESOME!!!

D: Yeah, see what I have to deal with there? I mean... who is this kid? What has he heard? I suspect an elaborate spy network, and you can bet there will be an interrogation later on... possibly the withholding of some cookies. I'll keep you updated.

Hey... Hi...Shhhhhh

Do you guys see Dot around? *looks left*

Supposedly he's in Spain, but he's wiley... REAL wiley... *looks right*

You might have noticed I'm not Dot...

I'm Jack the Pup by Rufnut Teds! Came all the way from Australia, I did!

I figured since there's this perfectly good blog just sittin' here...

I might as well say 'Hi!' and keep you entertained for the month.

I hope Dot doesn't mind.

Adios, Amigos! HAHA!

This little bear is going INTERNATIONAL! BWA HAHAHAHAHA! First step in world domination? VISITING THE WORLD!
(see me! I am the speck on top of his head!!... he seems skeptical about my insistence that I need to have the best vantage point... for security sake... to, you know, protect us from attacks and stuff)

So, H's brother, C, is going to Spain for a month, and I am tagging along. He's going to be hiking across Northern Spain, and I know H is hoping that both he and I make it back ok!
I will be going, of course, for the food... but I'm sure I'll see some stuff on the way... and then I'll be a world traveler!
The downside? You will have to live without me until Sept 30th, aka, my triumphant return!!

These pics are of me and C at the airport, abo
ut to leave (I am on top of the blue backpack there)... thank goodness I qualified as carry-on! Unfortunately, H couldn't follow C very far... and C already has some pics of us that are exclusive to his camera... so I can't share those until I return either... but hey... sometimes sacrifices must be made!

So, Adios, Amigos! I will see you in a month! (H might update while I am gone... she might have some old pics of
me laying around or something... cause, you know... I know how much you all will miss me.)

Quick Review of NYC

D: I went to NYC with H... and here is what I thought:

Dramatically underfed! I guess birds evolved from Dinosaurs... I wonder if T-Rex tastes like chicken?

BEST. RAMEN. EVER. I will never be able to eat the cheap stuff happily again... which is so very, very sad... I love the cheap stuff...

I guess this is famous or something, it was behind glass and there were a lot of big people crowding around it.... I don't see what the big deal was.

Chicken Curry Sandwich with Cranberry chutney and fresh fruits and veggies! Definitely more exciting than some dumb ol' painting.

Faeries? Central Park is straaaange....
That was my trip to NYC, in a quick NY second!
There will be more... but I don't know how to upload pictures from the camera!

An Early Midsummer's Night...

D: Listen... I know I'm early, but I'm just a little bear... I have a bedtime and stuff... so I will post my secret dream now:

WORLD DOMINATION followed by...
(I will achieve world domination with evil robot bears... they will do my bidding)

I wish EVERYDAY was vacation!

D: Hi guys! I just got back from something H called "vacation"... now, when she first told me we were going on "vacation" I thought she was going to take me to the doctor and I was going to get a ton of shots... since she said we were going for a week... so, I admit, I might have embarrassed myself with a bit of a tantrum... and perhaps a little running away and hiding.

Finally though H managed to find me and convince me "vacation" was something I wanted to do... and BOY WAS SHE RIGHT!

Here are a few snapshots:

Wow OH Wow! These were all for me!

Then I got to relax somewhere called the "beach"... and collect something called Petoskey stones... they don't look impressive when dry, but when they're wet they look like this:

and finally... I had a WHOLE WEEK of Gelato trips... mmmmmmm... coconut and chocolate almond = Almond Joy Gelato!!!

Yup, I think I might go on "vacation" next week too.

New Arrival

S: Hai!
D: Who the heck are you?!
S: I'm Summer! I live with you now!!
D: Why does everything you say sound like an exclamation?
S: Because!
D: ... well... ok kid, here's the ropes.
If you have any questions, ask Wise Old Mr. Panda.

S: Why are you so short, Mr. Panda?!
Panda: That is 'Wise OLD Mr. Panda' dear... and I am so short so as better to gain perspective on the world around me. From beneath one sees both the great height of expectation, and the expected fall from the height of greatness.
S: OK!
D: Uh... what?
Panda: One who asks, does not know. One who answers, suffers a fool.
D: Heeeey.....
S: Next!

D: Yeah, next... *backs away from Wise Old Mr. Panda* So, anyways, next we've got the minions. They're all the same, they can't even tell each other apart... so don't worry about that.
D: Yeah, they're pretty cute... but they'll latch on and never let go, so only use them if you are in dire need.
S: What's 'dire need'?
D: I think it's like, RIT dye and kool aid and stuff.
S: I like Kool Aid!
D: Me too.

S: Who are they?
D: No one, never speak of them again, and never look them directly in the eyes!

D: Do you think you've got it, kid?
S: Yup!
D: Good, stick with me and you'll be just fine.

Where did all the food go?

D: I tell ya, this trip was mondo disappointing. There was NO GOOD FOOD. Ok, there was food, fresh strawberries and raspberries, sandwiches and pizza, coffee and english muffins... but really, is any of that special? NO. We went to Mackinaw Island and there was NO FUDGE PURCHASED.

If you know anything about this island, it's all about the fudge (and something called 'road apples' but H. said we couldn't eat those)... yet, despite passing shop after shop of delicious fudgy creations... NONE WAS PURCHASED!

H. has failed me.

Anyways, despite life-altering disappointment, the boat ride over was fun... this is me sitting on my own spot on the bench... and the view out the window:

Then we had sandwiches on the lawn in front of the Fort, unfortunately, H's phone failed us again and you can't see anything outside the shady area.

Next we went on a bike ride and I was put atop this rather unstable looking rock structure... these little rock piles dotted the landscape along the beach and I'm *SURE* signify alien activity.
I insisted we knock them all down to save ourselves... but H. was having none of it. (Can you even see me up there?!)

We also climbed a bajillion stairs to see Arch Rock. It was a rock. That arched. Was it worth a bajillion stairs? No.

So, that was that. No fudge. A lot of exercise. *sigh*

D: Well, I can say that my photographs from my trip a few weekends ago were utterly disappointing. H's camera on her phone has NO depth of field. Really, I was expecting more.

One important shot I did get was this though, BREAKFAST! Every morning I woke up at 6 a.m. and got H. up too and we went down for a very full morning meal!

H: *grumble* 6 a.m. while I'm on vacation... *grumble*

D: Oh, quiet you, you loved it.

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Just a quick note...

I am back from Acen... although it wasn't a very photo-productive trip for me, because H's phone camera is too slow for that.

On a quick sidenote... she gave me these to eat... THESE!

Does she think just because I'm a stuffed bear, I don't know these are made of plastic?

Important things to know before a long trip...

1. Where the snacks are:

2. That you have enough snacks to make it there, and back again!

3. NEVER allow for distractions. The world is full of mysteries and dangers untold. If you follow that sticky-bun trail blindly, you might just end up dessert!

Here there be dragons...

Now, disappointingly, this particular adventure wasn't filled with food... it was filled with MONSTERS!
I snuck the phone off to our local pet shop... thinking I'd be seeing cute, fluffy kittens, maybe a puppy or two (although they scare me, they always want to chew on me...)... but no, NO. Instead, I look into the swirling, inky abyss and see... THESE!

Huge, scaly monsters, churning the water, pushing at each other to get closer to me, their gaping maws opening and closing in my direction! I tell you... the only snack on this trip... WAS ME!

I'm never going back.
