Ponderings by Picasso

Hey, did you miss me?

I stopped blogging Dec. 20 because the Mayans said the world was ending the next day.

Didn't want to spend my final moments with paws at the keyboard.

Well, it looks like the Mayans have some explaining to do.

So, I guess that leaves me with one thing to say:

Happy New Year, because it looks like we're going to have one after all.

Later, P.

Ponderings by Picasso

Lately, I've been pondering about what to get the humans for Christmas.

I'm not working with a big budget here.

You know, I don't get paid the big bucks to ponder for the this blog.

Anyways, here's what I've come up with so far:

1. I will not kick litter out of the box, for at least a week.

2. I will not hack up a hairball on their side of the bed.

3. I will not meow for no reason at an untimely hour like 4 a.m.

4. I will not stare at them while they sleep (although I probably could still do this and they wouldn't know).

5. I will get a long with the other cat in the household.

6. I will admit that I just lied.

Have a purr-fect Christmas.

Later, P.

Huskies and babies, can't go wrong

Loads of people think Huskies are cute, and just as many (probably more) are just as fond of babies.

Here's your daily (more like enough for a year) dose of the two.

The video is quite long, but you'll enjoy the beginning, at least.

Ponderings by Picasso

I have ponderer's block.

You know, humans, writer's block.

I've been pondering all week on what to ponder and so far, nothing.

The only thing I came up with is I think I need a nap.

Wait, I never have to ponder that.
