I Lobe You

A hint of salt and something sweet like flowers.

And the texture! Soft and sort of spongy and pliable.

Don’t you just lobe it, Hillary K?



  1. Theresa says:

    Hey, girl, give me back my earring!

  2. Granny K says:

    What is that?

  3. What… Is that? I mean.. this is a real animal? It’s.. It’s… It’s ADORABLE! And his or her fur look so silky! And her or his eyes? ohmondieu EYES! And the nom, the nom people! Who can resist this nom?

  4. NurseNoir says:

    Eet’s a tinny, tahny minkey!

  5. Pygmy marmoset, I believe.

  6. Once A Fish says:

    Uh, you got a little something something on your ear there… (grabs napkin, dabs it away, stashes it in purse for later).

    Also, I am imagining poor Ms. Hepburn’s face as she tries to locate said something something’s ears…

  7. Saffron says:

    Geez, I got my ears pierced at Claire’s. Who knew I could get them pierced this way???!!??

  8. leslie k says:

    I agree with Granny, What the heck is that???

  9. Theresa says:

    Marmoset marmoset!

  10. Theresa says:
  11. And then he ate the rest of her face.


  13. Sounds like Beetlejuice Beetlejuice. Just don´t say it too many times or one might turn up. But hey, WE WANT ONE! 😀

  14. Look at the photo again, and imagine he has her in a choke hold. He’s saying “Now that I have you in my power, give me all those grapes you have stashed in your pocket, or else!!!”

  15. I can’t get over her fabulous eyelashes. . .

  16. 260Oakley says:

    Proof that lobal warming is not a myth.

  17. Kari Callin says:

    The latest from Ronco products: Do It Yourslef Accupressure Kit! Just apply the marmoset to the appropriate area noted on the enclosed accupressure point map and PRESTO! PLEASE NOTE: Some care and feeding required and removal of said marmoset can prove difficult and may result in minor bodily injury. ENJOY!

  18. HRH QueenCat says:

    Haw !!! 🙂

  19. 260Oakley says:

    I read all about it in “An Inconvenient Tooth”, by Ear Gore.

  20. sunnylessmum says:

    At first I thought I thought it was a teeny tiny kitten 🙂

  21. Does anyone remember the time a marmoset relived itself on Johnny Carson’s head?
    I’ve tried to find it on youtube but couldn’t but I found it on this site:


  22. victoreia says:

    So did I! (It was the earsies!!) 😉

  23. victoreia says:

    *sigh* I miss Johnny!

    (Yeah, I know….I’m showing my age.)

  24. Fird Birfle says:

    verr’ nice, 2600!!!

  25. Fird Birfle says:

    He misses you, too, v.

    Probably more than he
    misses his ….[insert correct numeral here for quantity of ex-wives of J. C.] 😉

  26. Theresa says:

    Just thinking of THIS!

  27. Theresa says:


  28. Fird Birfle says:

    as opp. to “deja vu”???

    “Deja entendu!!!” or, perhaps, more accurately, “Deja lu!!!”

    (GOD I hope that’s the correct past-tense form of
    the verb “lire [Frawnsch, not Eye-talian] “to read”.
    It LOOKS very surreal. It’s either “lu” or “lit” .)

  29. 6rabbits says:

    *snortlaf, spits liquid on keyboard*

  30. Am I the only one who was thinking, hunh, a straight human photo, that’s kind of unusual for CO… oh wait, THAT’S NOT HER HAIR!

  31. 6rabbits says:

    Not necessarily–I used to beg my parents to let me stay up and watch him–esp. when he had any animals on! Nobody makes me laugh like Johnny! 🙂

  32. 6rabbits says:

    Thank you, Theresa! 🙂 (I mean that, truly. I love eet!)

  33. Pygmy marmoset: “I’M GOING TO BITE…you? (Tentative mouthing of earlobe) “What IS this thing?”

  34. Oui, oui, c’est correct! Lu = read (past participle). You’re right abt lit being a form of lire though – it’s what you would use for [he/she/it] reads: Il lit un livre. (It’s also the word for bed. Hm.)

    It’s fun: Deja vu, deja lu. AND deja entendu. All true. (oof)

  35. Aww, I miss Johnny, too. Always will.

    And Fird Birfle: That number is only (only?) two. He was still with wife #3 at the time of his death.

  36. dgerish says:

    me three!

  37. Amongst certain groups of college students, the latest fad is wearing an earring on the the right ear as a statement that you are single and available. Naturally, the choice of what decoration to wear has achieved stratospheric levels of one-upsmanship.

  38. In this case, the young lady might STAY singe and available! This little cutie might become territorial and gremlin-like with very little warning! Yeeeeowch!

  39. This chick looks like a creepy doll.

  40. Robin Kiesel says:

    OMG!!! That is the cutest earring ever!

  41. Robin Kiesel says:

    Ith it a Mythter?

  42. Robin Kiesel says:

    me four! and I want it.

  43. Fird Birfle says:

    The height of Swingin’ Mod, ca — ?? — 1966 or 1967.

    Note the following similarly spacey lookin’ gals, from a book offering patterns for LOVINGLY hand-knitted works of wonder. Esp see the seventh photo down (closeup on the brunette senorita in the bright daffodil yellow cap and sweateuw).
    Even the makeup is pretty similar to our lady with the marmoset earring here at
    CO today. Enjoy!!


  44. Fird Birfle says:

    OMG you mean to tell me that I DO recall mon Frawnsche????

    Will wonders never cease!!!

    AND your final line c’est du poesie!!!

    Je te remercie!!!

  45. Fird Birfle says:

    oooooooooo HOME RUN, Robin!!!!

    “The crowd in the stands, goes WILD with its approval!!!!”

  46. Fird Birfle says:


    “Do you have a leesance, for thet minkey???”

  47. Theresa says:

    Myth! Myth!

    Memory of Carol Kane in the Muppet Movie. 😀

  48. wuyizidi says:

    True, Johnny used to do this fake commercial where you can get this chess set from Franklin Mint, except in place of civil war generals, it was Elizabeth Taylor’s ex-husbands vs. Warren Beaty’s ex-girlfriends instead.

  49. The Original Jane says:

    What country is it legal to own a marmoset? (Seriously, I didn’t think it was allowed.)

  50. The Original Jane says:

    You should see pygmy marmosets with their BABIES on their backs. I’ve had the privilege twice in my life. The babies are about as big as your thumb. Unbelievably cute.

  51. 6rabbits says:

    Somewhat scary…scroll all the way down to the chick in the purple outfit–don’t even know what to call that! Please tell me no one really made and wore that ensemble?! 😯

  52. Teresa…. That’s so funny! 🙂

  53. Yes, same here. She is very pretty. 🙂

  54. Alice Shortcake says:

    Marmoset there’d be days like this…

  55. When my marmie was a baby kitteh, he used to do that exact same thing.

  56. Rachael says:

    Our Theresa is a National Treasure. ♥♥♥

  57. White Jenna says:

    Wild animal laws vary vastly state by state. I believe there’s still six of them were you can own just about anything, with no permit.
    Other countries, again, it varies.
    Primates make *horrible* pets.

  58. This picture was taken backstage at a transvestite cabaret in Thailand, which takes it from “adorable” to “awesome.”


  59. Desdemona says:

    Yes, White Jenna is absolutely right. Primates DO make terrible pets. I had to divorce mine.

  60. I KNOW! That’s what I kept staring at, too. LOL. Adorable marmoset, adorable girl. Some people get all the luck!

  61. Fird Birfle says:

    — er — 😯

  62. Fird Birfle says:

    Did you read the blog/ hostess’s commentaries??
    She’s fairly amusing …. 😉

  63. OMGROFLMAO! Thank you for pointing that one out. I nearly snarfed my coffee.

    On a related note, I recently found this gem at Dollar Tree: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0042P5I6U/. I bought several copies to give as little gifts for craftsy friends. So far, it’s been a big hit. =)

  64. O. M. G. That’s a man?

    Well, hey. It explains the awesome lashes. WOW!

  65. Right?!? Had I known Marmoset nibbles were an option… *commencing pursuit of bebeh Marmoset nibbles , tout suite!*

  66. In the wild, the male is often the more colorful one!

  67. So i guess baby marmoset earrings are in fashion this season? LOL

  68. I thought it was a bat.

  69. pinkmariposa says:

    Yay! Lobal warming, LOL!!!

  70. Theresa, I’ll see your marmoset song and raise you this marmoset rap:

  71. JenDeyan says:

    She is very pretty but those lashes are SO not real.

  72. JenDeyan says:

    Miss him too. Definitely showing my age. And thanks for the link, Gigi. I had never seen that. It made my day. Poor Johnny. *snicker*

  73. JenDeyan says:

    I was SO right about the lashes!

  74. Syringa says:

    Danke – Theresa! Oh, wie sehr ich es liebe!
    Thank you – Theresa, I love it so much!
    I really was in a sad mood – and now I have to dance!

  75. Why did you delete my comment? I didn’t do anything wrong! Did I? Is it because I’m from Germany?

  76. I just only want to thank Theresa. I really was in a sad mood and her video changes everything!

  77. I can’t hear you, there’s a marmoset in my ear.

  78. fleurdamour says:

    I didn’t know Audrey Hepburn had a monkey on her back.

  79. For shame, you three. for shame

  80. 6rabbits says:

    HA! Need to check out my local Dollar Trees! 🙂

  81. bob drummond says:

    Hey , FIRDIE ! Just how many different ” lenguas ” du you speak ?

  82. bob drummond says:

    It’s that way with many species , PYRIT !!

  83. bob drummond says:

    Very funny , Fleur , very funny !!!

  84. I really do think that’s Audrey Hepburn…. I could be wrong, but who else could be so radiant, or so delectable?

  85. Fird Birfle says:

    let’s see…..

    igpay atinlay (but pretty s-l-o-w-l-y, as I work out each word backwards…)
    le Frawnsche, ….l’Anglais, Redneck Suthran ‘Mericun …..

    and bits & pieces of German and Russian.
    However, in the interest of full disclosure, I must stress that my remaining abilities in those two, rather resemble the Hunt n Peck method of typing ….not particularly fluid or fluent.

  86. Fird Birfle says:

    Janee I can guarantee that the disappearing comment was not due to your being from Germany. We LOVES it when our CO-ers add to the conversation in a non-Anglais perspective !!!

    YAY Janee 🙂
