1. I would love to be a personal assistant to _________.
2. If I had a boat, I would name it _________.
3. I want to improve my _________.
4. Surprises are _________.
1. I would love to be a personal assistant to shelter animals.
(Being a personal assistant to a celebrity or bigwig has absolutely zero appeal to me. Kitties, pups, and all animals at shelters, on the other hand, they deserve that extra assistance and care on their journeys to finding their forever homes.)
2. If I had a boat, I would name it Rosie Posie.
(Rosie Posie is what I very often called my calico angel Rosie. In my humble opinion, it has quite a nice ring to it. I also often used the lengthier nickname of Rosie Posie Pudding Pie for my angel Rosie. How would that be for a boat's name? Does anyone know the nursery rhyme that starts out, "Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie"? I used to sing to my Rosie a little tune similar to that nursery rhyme, but of course changing it to star a little calico named Rosie Posie Pudding Pie. I'm probably making next to no sense at this point, so I'll stop there.)
3. I want to improve my communication skills.
(I am and always will be a massive introvert, but I do know that it's nonetheless important to stay in touch with people in your life. There are extended family members and even old friends that I should get better about saying hello to every once in a while. All I need to do is send a quick letter, email, or other message, and I don't know why I have such a hard time with that. I also know that I need to get way better at commenting on the blogs of all of you friends of ours. Shame on me for getting us so behind on this! We used to go online every morning and evening around my work schedule, and during breaks at work. Then work at my day job started getting busier over the past few month, and I started getting lazier about visiting our online friends as often as we used to. I really do plan on remedying this!)
4. Surprises are just a little terrifying.
(I'm not a fan of surprises, if this answer wasn't indicative enough of that. Dealing with surprises and spontaneity simply isn't my strong suit. Of course, surprises are not always a bad thing, but they often still make me feel a bit anxious.)

Do you know what else today is? Do you? It's the Pet Photo Fails! Blog Hop, hosted by Melissa and Mudpie of Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries, & Meows!
Let's start with a blooper from our resident blooper queen. That is, of course, Eddy.
Lately, we've been sharing a variety of non-blurry window whiffing shots of Eddy. That up there is, surprisingly, one of the very few bloopers we have from Eddy's window photo shoots. I guess the open window is the best place to catch a calm and tranquil Eddy.
Eddy isn't the only one who has a blooper to share today, though. Thimble, our usual professional poser of a model, has two bloopers to share. Both bloopers appear to impart her belief that no one but her, no matter what part of her, should be the star of a photo.
Apparently, Thimble didn't want Evan's face to be seen in either of those photos. Maybe that's why she used whatever part of her she could to photobomb his face. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Have a fantastic Friday!
Doodle of the Day:
Did you know?
Did you know that, in general, adult cats do not meow at other cats, but instead only meow at humans? Kittens do indeed meow at their mother cat to attract their attention, but when cats grow into adults, they usually no longer meow at other cats. Instead, adult cats can and do interact with each other using body language, and the occasional hiss or growl, but rarely meowing. It is believed that adult cats started their practice of meowing and making other similar vocalizations in order to attract and of course boss around humans. Since the humans respond to the meows by providing attention and food as demanded, the meowing at humans continues on.
