Our hosts for this fun Friday challenge are our good friends over at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader. We always look forward to the Fill-Ins, in large part because our hosts are so clever and think up such fantastic goodies for us, like these:
1. My inner child _________.
2. My favorite month is _________.
3. My favorite commercial is _________, because _________.
4. Personally, I don't care for _________.
Here's what I came up with:
1. My inner child comes out to play every single day.
(Some days, I feel like I never grew up. I love watching animated films, reading my favorite childhood books, and even testing out some of my childhood toys that I still have. I sort of feel like Peter Pan, and I don't know if I'll ever grow up.)
2. My favorite month is October.
(I love Autumn, and I love Halloween, so that about explains it.)
3. My favorite commercial is/are the "Dear Kitten" series of commercials by Friskies, because cats rock.
(I don't buy much Friskies, probably at least in part due to the fact that my kitties won't touch the stuff. But, that's beside the point. Seriously, have you seen the "Dear Kitten" Friskies videos? They're funny and full of furry cuteness, and apparently that's all it takes to please me.)
4. Personally, I don't care for coffee.
(Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I'm in a vast minority here. I am just about the only person in my family, the only person at my work place, and the only person amongst most of the acquaintances I make who does not like coffee. I have tried coffee in just about every variety, because I don't want to knock it if I haven't tried it. But, be it black coffee or coffee drowning in chocolate and caramel and sugar and cream, I just can't make myself enjoy a cup of joe.)
Now, who's ready for Eddy?
She's here today to show you something so very sad.
That up there, that's the closet. And her toys keep disappearing beneath its door. The rotten closet is a rotten thief.
So close, yet so far away.
We hope you all have a fun and fantastic Friday! Eddy and all of us here hope your toys don't play hide-and-seek with you!
Our Doodle of the Day:
Our Tip of the Day:Do you have any cat toy graveyards in your house? Under the couch? Beneath the bed? Inside those thieving closets? Though sometimes it takes some innovation, there are ways to help combat this saddening loss of toys. You could try the simple trick of placing a rolled towel or old shirt in front of or beneath the black hole (aka, at the base of the couch or the gap beneath a closet door). This can help to block toys' entrance into the dark vastness on the other side. Other items, such as empty paper towel or toilet paper rolls, or even draft shields that can be purchased at the store, can also be used to block the gap at the base of closet doors or or couches so that no toys could be lost to the other side. If prevention is not always possible, then consider having handy a yard stick or other similar item for the removal of toys from beneath couches and beds.
