I Just Don’t Know Where I Find the Time

Boy, have I got a busy day planned.

First, I have to put off cleaning out the rain gutters, then I’ve got to avoid painting the spare bedroom.

And somewhere in between not edging the front lawn and forgetting to take out the trash, I’ve got to carve out time to refrain from cleaning the attic…

  1. Exhausting.

  2. Someday we’ll find it, the Rainbow Connection. The lovers, the dreamers, and me…

    It’s not easy, being green…

  3. You’re reading my thoughts exactly, little Frog.

  4. Bless his/her heart…….

  5. Ah, a frog after my own heart!

  6. Shouldn’t have had that last chocolate-covered fly…

    Reminds me of my Dad’s L-tryptophan-ic bliss after Thanksgiving dinner…

  7. You have a busy day Mr. Frog.. Don’t forget to not go to the post office or grocery store….. Makes my day look like a walk in the park…

  8. Relaxy fwoggie! Makes me feel relaxed, too. Thanks.

  9. don’t forgot to make up an excuse for why you cant go to work tomorrow :]

    Now THAT’s what I call CUTE !!!!

    (even tho’ I’m generally not much of an Amphibian Phan….Ya just can’t deny this guy…)

  11. Labor pains?


  12. I didn’t know La-Z-Boy made lily pads 🙂

  13. If everyone took a moment, to lay on a lilly-pad and stare at the sky, watch the clouds and just be, the world would be a better place. Although, I doubt we’d stay dry long, lilly-pads are notorious for dunking riders.

  14. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Gigi — Niiiiiiice!!!!!

  15. 🙂 The fingers 🙂

  16. I’m with ya Mr. Frog. That’s exactly why I don’t find yoga relaxing!! Namaste to all.

  17. So cute! It reminds me of my first piano-recital piece, “Lazy Frog.” I can’t imagine the luck of catching this photo! If there’s any nuffing on this one, I’m giving up on mankind and looking for my own lily pad.

  18. Lol, this sounds just like my day! 😀

  19. Obviously Mike had a busy weekend. NOT.

  20. Haha look who appears so busy. I wish my day was like froggy’s

  21. Eating 12 bags of fly-flavored chips, drinking a sixpack of Rolling Pad and watching 12 hours of football is an awesome way to spend a Sunday!

  22. Gee, I tried to work not commenting into my schedule, but I failed–clearly I have much to learn from Senor Siesta here.

    P.S. Blondie, thanks for the Kermit nod.

  23. @Jenn

    “Senor Siesta” — Teehee, giggle

  24. Hmm, those cloud formations are amazing!

  25. This photo is a saver–I feel sooo relaxed just looking at it!

  26. Hey, he stole my weekend!

  27. While I think the picture is adorable, I wonder why the little guy is on his back. In my experience, froggies don’t like being on their backs. The only time I’ve seen frogs on their backs was when they were dying or dead. It makes me sad to think that this might be a pic of a dead frog.

    Of course, I don’t know the situation behind the picture; maybe he’s someone’s pet and they posed him for the picture. Maybe this froggy really does like being on his back. Maybe the whole thing is photoshopped. I don’t know. I just hope the froggy is okay. I love froggies (and toadies). They define the term “cute overload.”

    [I’ll tell you a “secret”: This is CGI from a Belgian advertisement. – Ed.]

  28. @Blondie… LOVE it! 🙂 makes me sooo happy….

  29. So is this a frog or a cat? 😛

  30. …almost 😉

  31. Where’s his banjo?

  32. Von Zeppelin says:

    “Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929) contemplates the final chapters of his great work, ‘The Theory of the Leisure Class.’ He decides he would like to join that class. Even during his lifetime, few people were aware that Professor Veblen was a frog.”

    (By the way, Leslie (NTA), when did you morph back from your secret identity as Resriechan? Did I miss this? Or is this yet another Leslie? It would be easier to keep track of people here at CO if everybody used a screen name of of an early twentieth century German airship pioneer.)

  33. It’s not that easy being green….

  34. Heather in Oregon says:

    Von Zeppelin-lol
    Theo- almost 😉 hehe

    Its too bad its CGI, but still an adorable photo. Very talented artists cramped their fingers working for days to produce a very relaxed looking froggy.

  35. Thanks for the clarification!

  36. @Theo – he’s an ampheline. (sound like a new drug with lots of fun side effects)

    [Not bad, not bad… – Ed.]

    What a beautiful frog. I LOVE FROGS. Hey, that was pretty much enthusiasm for a Monday morning. But I think I need to go lie down now.

  37. Misplaced Patriot says:

    That animal needs some alka-seltzer.

  38. Andi from NC says:

    apparently it IS easy being green…. can I be green too?

    [This is the internet; you can be anything you like – Ed.]

  39. “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing! Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is.” *belch*

  40. Fried flies, grilled grubs, gnats with natto*, water strider wine….

    *shout-out to Japan and Iron Chef fans!

  41. Awww…. what a sweetie. (Love the ad, too. Much better than our Pepto ads over here).

    Maybe if froggie has some time, he can come to my place and help me not do my housework and not write my paper.

  42. catloveschanel says:

    When green is all there is to be
    It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why

  43. Graceofbass says:

    I ❤ this picture. I wish I could hang with Kermit and sing Rainbow Connections on this beautiful fall day.

  44. Sporkles,

    Why you gotta ruin it for everybody by suggesting the dead frogs? BOOOO. You get the Debbie Downer award for today.

  45. Señor Siesta @ Rancho Relaxo.

  46. Original work: I’m so Cool.

    [Almost, not quite; your DA link is to a digital painting based on a photo of the CGI from the Belgian commercial. Still cool, and the execution is original; just not the subject matter. – Ed.]

  47. It’s not easy being green, huh, every thought and action are under such scrutiny!!

  48. Awwww it was too good to be true. I had saved the last pic of this froggy. Oh well I will save this one too. A reminder to let the work alone and relax.
    P.S. I absolutely LOVE the word “Blorp” . It makes me smile. blorp, blorp

  49. Love the pic! I wish I was that frog!

    I knew there’d be one debbie downer on this cute lily pad-floater!

  50. Great froggie, Von Z, LOL as is often the case with your comments. Everyone is so witty, especially NTMTOM, Hon Glad and you! Enjoy my day so much more with cute.

  51. Is this for real? If so, that frog is AWESOME. Love it.

  52. I am afraid my list is somewhat longer than the Frogs. There’s the loose ceiling paper that needs re-gluing, which is next to the hole where a pull switch was removed, over by the light switch is a cable that needs to be buried in the wall, after a rewire, all this has been like it for about 16 years. The concrete posts that that hold up the the front garden railings have been crumbling for 5 years and the down pipe from the gutter has been rusting for several years, because I couldn’t reach
    the top when painting. But don’t get me wrong the house isn’t a dump, it just needs a few cosmetic touches.

  53. Hon Glad, the floor in my bathroom has been concrete with carpet glue (and carpet strips with nails sticking out of it around the edges) for at least three years now. So you aren’t the only one with a house that needs “cosmetic touches.” LOL!

    Maybe when fwoggie is through with all of his not-chores, he can come help me not clean the bathroom and avoid doing laundry.

  54. @pyrit: D’oh! LOL!

    @Gigi: My local LZB is out of that model! DEMMIT! Must settle for the oversized bean bag chair… http://www.lovesac.com/

    @Jenn: Kermit rocks. 🙂

    @DCH: My first instinct was to make a ‘paddle faster’ joke, but…. I ain’t. 🙂

    @Rachael: LOL! That commercial was popular when I was young. The tune will forever be burned into my brain.

  55. Sporkles, I’m pretty sure frog is a posed pet…
    He looks pretty healthy, his eyes and skin look WONDERFUL.

    I’m sure the photographer has an awesome fast camera, as Senor Siesta here would have righted himself in moments. (Not sure how trainable a frog would be…)

  56. @ VZ:

    (oops — I typed those comments from a computer on which I hadn’t yet reset the name change, onto the CO comment form. Sorry for using the “old letterhead” & muddying the tea.) Have a good!!

  57. platedlizard says:

    Sometime you just have to stop and smell the lily pads.

  58. Look! That cloud looks like a duck!

  59. That’s the kind of day I’m having.

  60. my life and welcome to it…ahhhhhhh…..

  61. hon glad, your post made me unreasoningly happy.

  62. Cambridge_Rat_Mom says:

    I wish I could ever relax like that….green frog. Thanks for the example. I’m working on it.

  63. Froggie says nothing is better than just chillin’ at your own pad . . .

  64. Wannadance- I am Glad I made you happy. I don’t have much excuse, but some things aint important.
