    See, this is exactly why I don’t like cruise ships.

    Bring back the glory days of Cunard liners, I say. When I come aboard, I want to be greeted by a nice, calm Labrador retriever, who says, in a butlerish, Eric Blore voice, “Perhaps a whiskey and soda in the lounge before you go to your stateroom, sir?”

  5. Ay chihuahua!

    Where’s Paris?

    [ask a French person 😛 – Ed.]

  6. Resriechan says:


    Sir, I heartily applaud your righteous indignation ovuh the aPAWling selection of this individual by the cruise company, as Activities Coordinator. The ship hasn’t even pulled out yet, & already he’s a little Nervous Nelly.
    Ya know, little canine — you COULD PUT the name onto the list on the clipboard — & wait until you’re out of the public eye, to check with your staff (aka “Peeps”) about why that name is missing.

    This Guy/ Gal(?) doesn’t inspire me w/ confidence

  7. “What do you want me to do? Dress in drag and do the hula?”

  8. What a pretty little thing. I must have a chihuahua right this instant.

  9. Nano's Mom says:

    Where’s the hovertext?!! I WANT HOVERTEXT

  10. BEEP!

  11. Bones, so tasty to chew
    Come aboard, I’ll be nomming you
    Bones, life’s sweetest reward
    Enter my intestines, I’ve been expecting you

    The Milk Bones soon will be dropping into my dish
    The Milk Bones are wondrous and ever so very delish
    So set a course for the kitchen
    Your mind on those new noms now

    And your tum won’t be empty no more
    It’s an open mouth that get’s the tasty snack
    It’s Bones!
    Welcome to my tum
    You Bones Bones BONES

    (um) Kittykye?

    wazzat a reference to a film quote, er, em Ah jist unedjimacated?????

    Puzzled (So What ELSE is new??)


  13. ButtaRumCake says:

    SAFFRON FTW!!!!!!

  14. I would so beep that nose and snuzzles his/her belleh. 😛

  15. ButtaRumCake says:

    @ Res – if my mem’ry serves me right – methinks it was “The Lion King”…(I’m picturing Timon shakin’ his wee little hindquarters in a hula skirt to distract the hyenas???) It’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie…….

  16. @Von Zeppelin – I’ve always thought of Eric Blore as more of an English bulldog…

  17. @Saffron!!??!! There are no words.
    @VonZep and Camille, I’m just stinkin’ impressed that you know who Eric Blore was.

    BTW, no hovertext? 🙄

  18. 260Oakley says:

    There is no hovertext because the pupster is not on a hovercraft.

  19. Resriechan says:

    ok, I’ll bite (rather than opening *yet another websearch on my laptop, since I already have 10 windows loaded & waiting with subject research*.

    Who IS Eric Blore.

    260Oakley, you NEVER cease to amaze w/ the Cleverness.
    Related: Has the “Real World” actually convinced you to sit in a cubicle or do you get to sit back, relax & just spend time tellin’ us CO’ers the secrets of the Universe, one at a time??

  20. Resriechan says:

    (and in response to ButtaRumCake’s response to ….jeez I forgot..)

    ENNYway (sigh)…..THAT would actually explicate why Ah feels so STOOpid. Somehow I’ve managed to make it to almost “Fi(f)tee” years of decrepitness (or whatever more cute word is correct) …and I AM a fully documented ‘Mericum citizen (no police record, even 🙂 ) and yet (drumroll here, please)………………….. I’ve never (gasp of incredulity)…………………….seen The Lion King.

    Yeah, I know; I’m sure that Disney & co are already seeking grounds of revoking my citizenship or putting me on a barge labelled Return to Pakistan

  21. I stand humbled before the wit and wisdom of Saffron. *bowing*

    Chihuahuas should never be cruise directors! I thought everyone knew that. They launch into zoomies at the most inopportune times and it’s always all about them.

    My Lily, however, is the exception that proves the rule. She’d make an awesome cruise director because that girl sure knows how to have fun! And when you’re finished for the day she’ll come to your cabin for a complimentary snuggle.

  22. No No I am on the Lido Deck… I plan on playing shuffle board
    and taking the island tour of Catalina. and yes I will be dinning @ the Captains table tonight. Now I must hit the pool and Where is Issac.. I really need a margarita.

  23. Eric Blore: et voilà!

  24. @260Oakley: [headdesk]

  25. Heheheheh
    The Love Boat…
    Welcome aboard it’s love

  26. 260Oakley says:

    @Resriechan Flattery will get you everywhere, so I’ll share the secret to what you are kind enough to call my cleverness: here in Cubicle Overload I have a very small patch of imagination that I water liberally with diet Coke.
    Now you know.

  27. Von Zeppelin says:

    Adding my droplet of information to Theresa’s generous outpouring: Eric Blore specialized in playing butlers, waiters, and other such parts. He was frequently featured in the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals. Conveyed an air of sweet dignity without stuffiness.

  28. @Resriechan — Yupyup, ButtaRumCake is right. I couldn’t help thinking about Timon shakin’ his booty with this one.

    ^_^; … You haven’t seen The Lion King? Meep. You must watch. I can recite the entire thing word-for-word (ohmy, I shouldn’t admit that, should I…)

  29. ButtaRumCake says:

    @ Res – don’t worry, you can always get the DVD & giggle uncontrollably @ Pumbaa LOL! The only reason I ‘member it is ’cause that scene used to invoke peals of baby belly-laughter from my now-11-year-old.

    P.S. How are you feeling? Hope it wasn’t the floo…I had floo-monia before…in the summer….SO not pretty *yik*

    @260Oakley – OOOoooo so it’s diet COKE! OK see I think I was doing it wrong…I was using diet Pepsi…should I switch?

  30. metsakins says:

    *glances at cute puppeh and collapses*

  31. to cute i think that you should be a doggy model

  32. Adorable!!!

  33. Really? No one has mentioned “poop deck” yet?

    *giggles* (because I’m apparently a 5 year old)

  34. My best friend’s grandson calls them “Chick-a-wha-whas”…yes, he is only 3.

  35. @ Saffron…too, too, too funny…abso-toot-ly BRILLIANT!

    @ Ellen…I’ll join you in the 5 yr old section b/c your comment made me do a spit take and laugh out loud.

  36. Jess&Friends says:

    What do I have to do to get a dance with that anerable lil’ puppeh?

  37. And because this is CO we’ll overlook the fact that fiesta isn’t an actual word. 😉

  38. ButtaRumCake says:

    Wait….doesnt’ fiesta mean “Party” in Spanish?

    Or am I missing a joke? (which wouldn’t surprise me…certain knock-knocks can cause me to revert to Patrick Starfish…)

  39. Resriechan says:


    (Thank you God; via ButtaRumCake. I LOVE etymology & woid resoich !!)

    The following from a yahoo educ. webpage, FROM American Heritage Dict.

    (I considered doin’ my search @ the Oxford Dict/ English …but in this partic. case, it seems something from the ‘Mericun side of the Pond would be a better reference for the moment. If someone orig. Spanish-speaking wants to put those aspects into the mix, then I welcome the addition to the gumbo !!)

    fi·es·ta (f-st)/ NOUN:

    A festival or religious holiday, especially a saint’s day celebrated in Spanish-speaking countries.

    Spanish, from Vulgar Latin *fsta ; see fe

    ALSO also to BRC:

    How cool for peeps who ain’t never (see? I don’t spend *ALL* my time doing proper word etymology resoich…;) ) met me, nohow, to ask after the Grunge. So refreshing!..,(SOMEWHAT) short answer is:

    (sorry, did I knock you down with that, like Lucy does to Chuck in Peanuts cartoons?)

    and 2) I rec’d in my email, from two entirely diff people, a detailed contrast/ checklist about colds vs flu symptoms. Likely this one was a Severe Cold, NOT the Plague H1N1 (again, THANK YOU GOD!!) Several days of feeling that my only purpose in life was to hold a tissue box & blow my nose 3x per minnit.
    Quite tedious. Present Status: Prob. about 70 % back to firing on all cams.

    I LOVE CO (or had I already made that aBUNdantly clear in the past???;) )

    Peace & floppy lips (hmmm is that a canine muzzlepouch, then?) to all.

  40. Resriechan says:

    (ps — sorry ! “BRC” was my abbreviated salutation/ response to I look my post through, that doesn’t seem quite evident)

  41. Definitely a little Mexican cutie. Love me some Chihuahuas.

  42. fiesta is a noun in Spanish
    it is used for a party.

    Adding to Resries the more you know.

  43. Gets out maracas and margarita mix and turns on dance music.

  44. Resriechan says:


    Geez, YOU just go right TO the end objective, dontcha !!!????
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    (those smileys are sposeta be us CO Peeps, AT KA’s Par-TAY !!!)

  45. Resriechan says:

    And @ kk3

    May I borrow that term, if I always ensure that my recipients *KNOW* that it came from the (presumably) adorable young’un in yer famille???

    (looks behind sofa cushions:”Oh, wow, look, here’s that one Starburst that fell & disappeared on H’ween — It’s still wrapped & everything. Take that, in trade?”

  46. Resrie Times a wating Get partying
    Puts on “Everybondy Dance now” Bass sounding in the back ground as severyone starts dancing!

  47. Resriechan says:

    @ KA:


    (raises hand meekly & timidly) (*SNERK!!!*)

    “Um, Mrs. KittyAdventures, Ma’am?”
    “Would you mind awfully if a couple of us just sit in the corner on chairs & listen to the music & watch? I’m really not skilled, at that whole Groovin’ Thang. I mean, I’m all Caucasian & stuff. I mean, yeah, sure, I can enjoy the music & I can move around & stuff but hamenahamenahhamenah (etc.)?

    “Ma’am? Were you able to hear my question over the music???”

  48. pinkmariposas says:

  49. Resriechan says:

    (outraged, indignant tirade over lack of cutesy hovertextohmygodwereallgonnaDIE!!!!THE SKYISFALLINGDON”TGOUPTHOSESTAIRS, JOHNNIIIIIEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!)

    & so on.

  50. That is the most confident looking Chihuahua I’ve ever seen! Honestly he (she?) should be giving motivational speeches to other Chihuahuas.

  51. That is one festive chwa-chwa. What a grand little schmata!
