LOOK INTO my beady eyes.

You cannot look away, they own you with their beadiness.

You can almost SEE yourself in my eyes, they are Beyond Beady. [B.B.]

    Zelda (monotone zombie voice): Yesssss, Master…. Your wish is my command.

  14. Claudia says:

    I think this prosh hammie has been photograph in the doorway of a “liberty ball.” I think the plastic of the ball is the trippiness and the orange on the left is the hand holding the ball.

    I just checked out HamsterTracker. Mathijs is thinking about adopting Lucy 3.0 but wants to get some other items accomplished first. One is to work on the website because he is running out of room. There are some recent posts of places people have taken visited with Lucy’s picture. One woman is using it in her thesis work!

    Oooh, swirly colors and big nose. Very RCF.

    Also, I’m one of 924 peeps on now? Wow. Nice counting thingy!

  16. this is the last thing a cheerio sees.

  17. One Eyed Daruma says:

    That eye looks like a hammy magic eight ball. Are hammies cute? The signs point to yes. Is cute the best way to spend the last half of the last day of the work week? It is decidedly so. And I think I can hear the ocean in that ear…TGI Qte F

  19. Livbert says:

    I…I kept trying to read what you were had typed but my eyes wouldn’t stop darting back to the beady ones on my computer screen. Hypnotic…

  20. R. Moore says:

    Nice RCF version.

    Looks like the hamster’s Jesus!

  21. those are beedy eyes, but I just watched Richard Gere in First Knight… noone has beedier eyes than he has… not even this hammy.

  22. Jen, that is hilarious! Now every time one of my kittens snorgles me in the face, I’ll think, “this is the last thing a piece of kibble sees!”

  23. ohh look an angel hammie you can see his halo

  24. R. Moore says:

    Hey, there should be a Reality Casual Friday section. For easy RCF material finding!

  25. R.Moore do you think Theo is listening??

  26. If this ham were a comic book villain, he would be the Hypno Hustler or the Ringmaster.

  27. R. Moore says:

    I hope he is…

  28. Fuzzybutt says:

    Cannot. Look. Away.

  29. FYI… retroactively creating new Cute Overload categories is a PITA. Also, I think we might not have any available custom-category slots left now.

    But, thanks. Heh. If TypePad had tag clouds, like Vox, I’d absolutely use ’em.

  30. PS — sometimes I sleep.

  31. Clearly this is a still from Mugatu’s hypotism sequence…

  32. hey Ac-ronym man you are driving me crazy… I have to go look most of these up as my brain doesn’t think that way. I just got the hang of brb, oh and roflmao(that is my new personal favorite)…. **Goes to look it up on the web and returns in a flash**… oh you must mean this **Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association**… Not! Hehehe

    oh no I think PITA is a new favorite acronym for me. Thank you Ac-ronym man.

  33. So excited that my lil photo of Buzz the Hamster has become famous! For more pics of Buzz go here:

  34. Yitzysmommie,is yitzy a dog, cat, Bunny,Hammie Tweety bird? Just an enquiring mind whho wants to know

  35. R. Moore says:

    I find the comment that never ends and makes no sense fascinating. Buuut it takes up more room than I’d care to scroll through.

    Also, sometimes I sleep, sometimes I stay up past midnight, wake at seven and hike all day instead of getting my many To-Do items done.

  36. R. Moore says:

    Also, regarding the “last thing a cheerio sees” comment and “last thing a piece of kibble sees” comment in response, I noted this CO post last night:

  37. Help! Eees the hypnoham! I are tripping ….

  38. Yitzysmommie says:

    Annie – Yitzy is Yitzak the tuxedo kitteh, The Best Cat Ever, adopted last year at the age of 8 weeks from the Salt Lake County Animal shelter. His fave place is draped over my left shoulder while I play on the Innerwebs. Second fave place is on his kitteh perch chirping at the birdies building a nest outside his window, with his lllooonnngggg tail twitching mightily.

  39. Yitzysmommie, awww how sweet. I love the shoulder drapers. We had one, his name was Tuffy. He was a half wild kitten and he didn’t like to be held at first but he loved to sit on your shoulder and then when he was full grown to drap across the back of my neck and snorgle my face.(I didn’t know it was snorgling then, I just knew it was how he expressed his love) I miss him. None of my current kitties like to ride on my shoulders. oh well maybe the next time I get a kitty.

  40. Ohh and tuffy prefered the left shoulder too. I wonder if it is because it is closer to your heart?

  41. R Moore — “trackback” links are useless for human eyes… use the “permalinks” instead.

  42. Yitzysmommie says:

    Meg/Teho Thanks for the fixup.
    I Lllllllloooooooove the RCF version of Mr McBeadersons. Reminds me of the 60’s & blotter acid….
    Annie- Yitzy is my first shoulder percher, and I love it. He also likes to jump on my back when I’m bent over cleaning – not so great when he’s in need of a manicure & he tries to hang on as I stand up!

  43. Tuffy used to do that too. Bend over weeding and planting or cleaning and if he was anywhere near he was on my shoulder. I think I have permanent claw scares from him. It must be some gene mutation. Hehehehe.

    Hey he doesn’t follow you to the kids room at night to listen to you read stories to them does he? Or try to go on walks with you like a dog?

  44. lucy grim says:

    is he wearing SPARKLES? I swear I see sparkles in his fur…

  45. lil_cutey says:

    oh that lil piggy iz sooooo cute! His lil beady eyes r so adorable!

  46. squee! this hammy still gets me and i’ve been here a bzillion times this week.
