Helen, it's funny up until you start finding said barf all over the house! Our cats have eaten and ralphed the Christmas tree three times now...
And it's plastic!

That monty python joke had me cracking up all over the cyber cafe. Do you often quote Monty Python? Except for the 'And now for something completely different' that you do every week?

Everyone seems to be having some sort of food on their blogs. I'm getting hungry just reading them.

Holly and cats aren't a good mix, but I thought the pic was fun.

Have a great weekend, Diane!

Stephen Tremp said...

Barfed up Holly? Hilarious. One could also substitue cat nip.

Yep, it has started already. My dogs have been finding scraps off of my fake wreath to munch on. Every evening, my husband and I are pulling things out of their mouths, playing "Guess the debris...."

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Jai, every Friday post starts with a Monty Python quote!

And Stephen, they snort the catnip, so it doesn't get barfed. Snotted maybe.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Great picture! And I loved the spammy way you started out your post!

Thanks Carolyn - this is my funnest post of the week.

Elizabeth, I'd challenge anyone to repeat that five times fast, too!

Helen Ginger said...

Seriously, Diane? That's too funny - for me, not you, of course!

I can't believe I never noticed the Friday monty python jokes. I think I was so eager to get to the 'something different' that I skipped over that. Doh! I'll have to go back and read all of them now. Love monty python.

So this is way off topic, but I thought of you the other day. (Not in a creepy way or anything.) People magazine had a blurb on Kitty Wigs. It's a picture book with cats wearing doll wigs. Pretty funny/cute.

Tara, I'm surprised my mother-in-law hasn't given me that book yet, then! She did give me one about cats painting...
