No, None Of Us Are Named “Patrick!”

It’s just that we’re all green! (Well, sorta.) Get it? St. Patrick’s Day? Now where’s the pitcher of green beer? WAITER!
[Ah yes, freshman year, Miami University. Pitchers of green beer for a quarter, 3am in uptown Oxford. Wait- I didn’t go, I don’t drink. Never have. Never mind. -B]


Flashback Friday

What a difference 60-ish years can make! Behold, Rusty, a classic Corgi pup, circa 1940-ish. And then compare to Max Stubbular, circa 2012-ish! Gasp, ooh, awww!

Happy Dolphin-Horse-Pig Day!

Combing thru the massive CO computer database (A Google Calendar with a lot of dates typed in) we find that today happens to be a CONFLUENCE of three happy occasions.

It’s the beginning of Dolphin Awareness Month, and it’s also National Pig Day and National Horse Protection Day!

We have to give plenty of love today to our Cute Friends, whether they swim, gallop, or grunt! So the next Dolphin, Horseh or Piggeh U see, give ’em a high fin hoof five! w00t!

Equal Time For Sledding Possums

Why? Because Ratatouille the sledding possum also has a cute sweateuw and cute music and he is all, “Yo, Fabulous Pug Models, check me out. Whee. I’m gonna get your pom poms.” Also because, this vid is now a CO tradition:

The C.O. Guide to Norse Mythological Demigods

Nearly forgotten among the lesser Norse deities is Geirgaardsenjansvaaldul, a helpful household imp often depicted with the body of a kitten and the head of a 1967 Buick Skylark.

Never depicted without his tools, including his mighty HaammurSchlankenKlaff (Hammer of Very Urgent Banging), Geirgaardsenjansvaaldul was the God of Household Repairs, said to intercede when appliances that mysteriously stop working mysteriously start working again for no reason.

From my days in the peanut gallery. Qui M. was the sender-inner.

We’re Off to C the Blizzard

Now that Winter Storm Nemo is history, Winter Storm “Q” has arrived! A name which begs to ask, Y? It’s quirky, it’s quaint. We like to think it’s “Q” for Qte.

Dakota B.’s pup says this storm is like Deja Q all over again.
