HedgeSpa

Dahlings, There is no better way to start the week than with a few spa treatments. First, get your quills moisturized. Twice. They bring out your beady eyes.

Second, your dainty paws could use an apricot scrub and peppermint oil massage. Those paws are tiny, and you carry the weight of the Cute World on them. They must be refreshed!

Lastly, and most importantly, I recommend BeautyHedge nose cream, for a supple, come-hither schnozzle. Try it, Dahlings!

    schnozzle…resistance to snoorgle is futile.

  21. omg hedgie!

  22. Madera says:

    Lucky Hari. He gets spa treatment while all I get is a Monday.

    Hedges don’t know how good they have it.

  23. Seriously, I want a hedgie now!

  24. Jan Spencer says:

    “Oh, and last but not least, the cucumber over the eyes, for the lasting longing looks you give your fellow hedgies…they make great hor d’erves too!” (Do hedgehogs eat cucumbers???)

    “your fellow hedgies…they make great hor d’erves too!”

    Hedgehog Hors d’Oeuvres??? That’s it! I’m calling the Mrs. Tiggywinkle Squad and they’re going to go Beatrix Potter on yo’ butt! ;)

  32. Recipe for hedgehog hors d’oeuvres includes carefully removing ALL prickles first…

  33. But who will do the massage for the hedige? Everyone needs a good massage at the spa…

  34. very cute my head imploded

  35. Meg, your comments are AWESOME!! Second only to dear little Hari, who truly deserves the royal treatment. Peppermint and otherwise…

  36. OMG – That’s utterly beautilicious.

  37. Good grief. I need my snorgoggles.

  38. AuntieMame says:

    I think I need to borrow the white pup’s bifocals, because I thought A thinker said to remove all pickles first, and I’m down with that, since I hate pickles.

    I’m not sure of their efficacy as a beauty treatment, though. The acidity might be good for the complexion.

  39. LOL @ AuntieMame!!

  40. Elizabeth says:

    Is it just me or does anyone else thing that the adorable hedgie looks like he’s dressed up to play the virgin mary in the All Hedgie naitivity scene?

  41. Kawaii!!!!

  42. Holy Mary Hedgehog, Elizabeth, I think you’re right!!

  43. mOPTOPmOUSe says:

    ‘My My Someone fetch a priest, you cant say no to the Cuty and the Beast.. Darling’ after D.Bowe, yerp MTm

  44. Hari looks so tranquil – and yet, most hedgebaths are not without struggle…

    I’m not feeling too quick on the draw today re. humorous comments, but I’m mos’ def’ lovin’ this hedge.

  45. Ahhhh! What a cute little face!

  46. Tony James says:

    Variations on a theme suggested by Elizabeth (weeeeeeeeeeee, I’m going to hell!!!)

    “And the webmaster came in unto him, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Broadband is with thee: blessed art thou among hedgies.
    And the webmaster said unto him, Fear not, Hari: for thou hast found favour with Meg.
    And, behold, thou shalt conceive a website, and bring forth a cult, and shalt call its name CuteOverload.”

  47. adorababy says:

    that hog looks smart

    also v. low BEF for a hog… the irises are *sigh* hazel

  48. And for penance you shall do 20 Hail Hedgies and apologize to Brother Theo for commiting the first post sin…. again….

  49. Tony J, you just sent me into a coughing fit lmao!! I’ve been sick at home for a week and this place has *tewtelly* saved my sanity.

  50. The danger, of course, of having your hedgehog in with your towels is that horrible day when you can’t find your loofah and you’re sooooo laaaaazy and he’s riiiiiight there…

  51. mariser says:

    pewsonawly, I think Hari is in the preparatory stage to become a “hedgie burrito” (cf. April 25, 2006 ‘kitten push-up’ post).

    /sorry no linky, I can’t get the permalink to show…

  52. Yea, verily Tony!

  53. M-, LoL! Why is everyone on here inexplicably funny?

  54. HEDDDGGEEEHOG.
    Adorable.
    Hallo everyone, I’m Amie.

  55. I’d gladly give hedgie a tummy massage. Not a back massage, though.

  56. Hedgehogs are the BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO GO GO EMO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. conrod says:

    GO GO EMO-RANGERS!

  58. connor says:

  59. GLENN IS FUNNY CONNOR IS GAY, TOGETHER THEY LIKE TO “PLAY” IN THE HAY!!!
    (GO EMO-RANGERS

  61. Dustbunny says:

    Looks like hedgie’s had his quills highlighted too, for that chic streaked look.

    BTW, I could swear there was a whole section on the CO main page yesterday written by Theo, summarizing the best posts from last week. Did I imagine that??

  62. little miao says:

    She must be the daintiest darlingest hedgie possible!!

    I saw it too, Dustbunny. I seem to remember a birdie in a towel.

  63. Dustbunny & Little Miao — Huh. I missed it completely. I did write something up, and Meg was doing some re-formatting; I just figured she ran out of time before it wasn’t Sunday anymore.

    [time passes] …OK, I just checked on it in the TypePad management screens (took forEVER to load! yeesh), and it it looks like the post did get prettied up with photos & colors & an intro by Meg. It’s also been re-titled “The Sunday Wrap-up: 5/1 to 5/7″ sooooo I’m guessing it may show up NEXT Sunday, presumably along with a new one.

    Meg? Weigh in?

  64. No, no, Theo. What happened was exactly what you predicted: with three comments, that post went into a recursive meta-feedback comment loop, or whatever you said. It disappeared into the infinity of CO, only to randomly reappear (sometimes) as one of the navigation links at the top of the page, only to disappear when you looked for it again. Three comments were just too much–they tipped the balance.

  65. Carlisa says:

    What a cute little guy. That reminds me, my little boy has a report to do on a book called “Hedgie’s Surprise” by Jan Brett that we need to do tonite. Just showed him this pic and he goes “yaaaaaaawwwwwwww”! He’s addicted to CO, too.

  66. So do we get to see them or do we have to wait till next Sunday?

  67. Aubrey says:

    “After a day-long visit to her favorite Barb-er Shop, Hari is living proof that a detailed beauty regimen is worth the trouble! Beginining with a hedge trim, she continues with a frost, eye sparkle treatment and full body wrap, to prolong that shapely hedgie-sillhouette. And, lo, she emerges – spikey and adorable!”

  80. Thinker – U R FNY. At least space & time as we know it weren’t sucked in right along with it.
    It’s the little things.

  81. Sometimes….I just cant prevent myself from snorgling my hands with joy

  82. My hedgie cuti better than picture~~~kkk ^^

  83. Dewds!

    1. Highlighted quills—I’m SO bummed I didn’t think of that one

    2. Tony James continues his streak of brilliance

    3. Theo, please forgive moi, I took the Sunday Wrap up post down because I couldn’t format it correctly. It’s not you, it’s ME!

  84. 不错!

    good!!!!!!

  85. Constance says:

    I’ve never had the urge to snorgle simething so spiny before…….

    I should seek help for this problem, as it could lead to a very…uncomfortable situation in the future, should I ever run across a hedgie.

  86. pheral says:

    well that’s just adorabibble.

    And i do declare, it wasn’t Meg, yon missing post must have been sucked into a SPACE ANOMONAMONAMANAOMALLY!!

    She’s just trying to cover for the anomanamonamanaomally because it’s a lifeform and she’s fallen in love with it and wants to save it’s poeple who live on the planet Squidge…

  87. Cute, but dangerous…

    http://r2000.blogspot.com

  88. Good lord.
    I just got the “it’s not you, it’s me” line.
    I am gobsmacked.

  89. Theo: HOW DO WE KNOW?!

  90. Jan Spencer says:

    NO NO NO PEOPLE!!! CUCUMBERS FOR HOR’D’ERVES!!! NOT THE HEDGIE! WHADDAYA THINK I AM, A HEATHEN??

  91. No, no, I’m sorry, I was just about to post a clarifying comment. I meant how do we know that space and time weren’t sucked in along with that post…ah, nevermind.

  92. There is no spoon.

  93. Oooh, yes, you are right!

    Not bendy ones, though.

  94. Wee spa hog. :)
    How come Toasty’s not in the Hedge Hog category?
    http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/04/attention_miss_.html

  95. Green — looks like Toasty got categorized into Pocket Pets somehow (yeowch!)

  96. Katharine says:

    Hey, great, thanks for posting my photo. =) I was wondering if it was cute-worthy or not. I showed Hari, and he huffed with joy..or perhaps anger for disturbing his sleep. I don’t know which.

  97. Just too cute for words. Even my hedgies are jealous! Nothing like a freshly bathed hedgie giving lazy eye glances while all wrapped up in a snowy white towel. Breaks my heart every time!
