We know we love it! And this week our hosts, the ingenious 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader, brought some very clever fill-ins to the table:
1. When I run out of _________, I use _________ instead.
2. My guru is _________.
3. I am afraid of _________.
4. I feel empowered _________.
I always try to live up the to fill-ins' potentials. But, I'll let you all be the judge of my success, or lack thereof.
1. When I run out of tissues, I use toilet paper.
(Sometimes, when it's allergy season or you have a really bad cold, no amount of tissues is enough. When I run out and am just not up for a trip to the store, toilet paper is called in. I'm not the only who does this, right?)
2. My guru is my angel Rosie.
(I was blessed enough to have my lady cat Rosie by my side from the time I was 4 years old until I was 26 years old. She was my best friend and confidant throughout my childhood and all the way into my adulthood, and she taught me more about life than anyone else ever could. Needless to say, she will always be my inspiration.)
3. I am afraid of mankind's potential.
(I don't know whether this sounds profound or just completely ridiculous. What it comes down to is that mankind has made a mark for itself in this world, developing it into what it is today, and propelling toward a future even more complex. I know that is something of which to be proud, but I won't lie, it scares me. From tracking devices to artificial intelligence to all sorts of manufactured food and drugs, the terrifying possibilities are endless.)
4. I feel empowered when I do a good deed.
(This probably sounds counterintuitive. What I mean to say is, I feel a great sense of accomplishment and even pride when I put aside my own needs to help others. It really is a great and uplifting feeling, knowing that you might have made someone else's day by sacrificing part of your own.)
Now, are you ready for a little Eddy fix?
Can you believe how she's mostly sitting still here?!? What prompted this moment of calm, you ask? The answer would be the promise of sitting on the seat of her mommy's exercise bike. Want to know something else? Eddy's especially fond of sitting on it after her mommy has just finished using it. And want to know what's even better? When her mommy puts down her nasty sweat towel for Eddy to lie on! Eddy thinks that makes the most perfect bed.
Yep. Nothing like the aroma of the mom's sweat to lull a girl to sleep.
TMI? Most definitely.
Happy Friday, everybuddy! We hope you're ready for the weekend!

Our Tip of the Day:
Although above I may have cited a fear of some of the world's advances, such as tracking devices, there is one such advancement that it is truly beneficial, and that would be microchips for our furbabies. That's why today's tip is to please have your furbaby microchipped. What's more, please remember to register that microchip with all of your current information, and all of your furbaby's current information. If the microchip company allows for pictures to be uploaded to their site, please do consider putting an up-to-date picture of your furbaby, so that he or she can be more easily identified in the case that they become lost. And please make sure that you stay on top of renewing your furbaby's microchip as needed. Some company's require yearly renewal, sometimes with a fee, so be sure that you are familiar with this setup for your furbaby's microchip in particular. Microchips can be a godsend if your furbaby goes missing. Many veterinary offices, shelters, and animal control facilities will scan for a microchip when a lost animal is brought in. So, be sure your furbaby has one, and that it is kept up-to-date. Better safe than sorry!
