When CuteLabs™ Goes Bad

For your Reality-Casual Friday viewing pleasure.  Webcomic by Kris Straub.

All Hallow’s Art Crawl

Ah, good eeeeeevening.  [ominous pipe organ!]  Welcome, my esteemed guests.  [creaky iron gate!]  As some of you are no doubt already aware [flapping bat wings!] …today is a most auspicious day indeed.  [distant echoing howl!]  Yes, my pretties, the time is upon us at last!  Tonight, we shall celebrate:    [cork pop!]  [duck call!]  [whoopee cushion!]

If you would excuse me for just a moment.

(wait, wait, dude, we got a whole WAREHOUSE of foley effects, c’mon hey leggo HEY)
[dismissive door slam!]

A thousand apologies.  If I may resume?  *ahem* …tonight, once more, we celebrate:
Reality-Casual Friday.


Please help yourselves to hors d’oeuvres, which can be found in the plastic jack-o-lanterns, and as always, please avoid all eye contact with the Bunnilisk.  Shall we move inside?  It does appear that there is an unseasonable thunderstorm approaching…


Why yes, that is a Wachter.  I actually framed that one myself.  Thank you!  And if you flatterers would direct your attention over here by the rabbit cage, I just finished this one today — no, over here — don’t — not down there!  Oh for… didn’t I say?!


Tsk.  That’s more for the statue garden, then — though how we’ll find room for all of these is quite beyond me.  Hmm, perhaps that abandoned and oddly-zoned graveyard next door could be annexed… [contented carrot munching!]

Meg on Martha: Video!

Oi Peeps!  Meg is en route back to San Fran, but I’ve got video for youuuu…

This is of course our Fearless Leader featured this morning on The Martha Stewart Show.  Big hello to Martha & Co.!  I especially wanted to say hi to Eliad Laskin, too; Eliad is more-or-less my counterpart over at The Martha Blog.  w00t!

Oh — and those really are some nice cameras.  Not at all jealous.  ;)
One more thing: The chow chow puppy post is here!

In Soviet Russia…



Remember: the hovertext will set you free.  Pleasant dreams!

How to have a lazy Sunday in 8 easy steps

STEP 1:  Be a wolverine.

STEP 2:  Know that you are a badass predator.  Choose to chill.

STEP 3:  Be a leopard.

STEP 4:  You are the elitest of the elite.  You are the eyeblink of death.  You are death from above.  You come from Mongol-flocking Siberia.  Let the camera-clutching tourists squeal and flail and gibber.  They are tender and delicious.  You can afford to chill.

STEP 5:  Be a tiger.

STEP 6: <snort>
STEP 6a: Leopards.  Afraid of water.  Honestly.  Come, I will show you the Way of Chill.
STEP 6a1: Come closer.

STEP 7:  Be a bear.  Better be two bears, in fact.  Be TWO RIGGA-DAM’ GRIZZLY BEARS, pilgrim!

STEP 8:  You know the drill.

Thanks to the Minnesota Zoo and their new Minnesota Trail and Grizzly Coast exhibits!  They’ve really been working on the place; even the run-through fountains in the play area are back.  Sadly, they didn’t have any grizzly cubs for us to take pictures of, which was too bad because that would’ve been just about THE ULTIMATE Cute Overload post.  They’re working on it, though.

Please Do Not Climb the Otter

Welcome, welcome one and all, to Minnesota’s Fergus Falls!

Home of The Otters!

We got otter football, otter softball, otter pops, otter sculpture…

…oh fer cryin.  We got otter tourists.  [sigh]

Not to be too smug, but how jealous are our friends at now, eh??  Grins.

This is not my fault.

Bbbb_125I am the very model of a bouncing baby bunny butt
I’ve bounced across the continent, from port to park to Pizza Hut
I know the whole Glossary, and I quote -isms Cute-icle
While standing on my two front paws, in manner most anerable

I’m very well acquainted, too, with matters controversial
I comprehend what ticks you off, both social and satirical
I clarify the Where and Why of issues touching all of us
From literary inchworm to domestic hippopotamus

I’m practiced as a pilot and like Lindbergh I can navigate
From bunway to the bayou, from the Midwest to the Golden Gate
I’ve sampled every pudding type from cantaloupe to coconut
I am the very model of a bouncing baby bunny butt!

Shave and a harecut, two bits.

Thanks to all you crazy Peeps in the comments, and of course Gilbert & Sullivan
