OK.. so at my house we are all a little nuts.. maybe even more so then a "little"! In fact we've had dozens of people tell us that we should have our own reality tv show.. sort of on the same line as the ozborns or roseann (I must say I didnt like either of those shows..) but I can definitely understand why some people think we might be funnyand if a camera were to follow us around for a few days there would surely be some very laughable times but, on the other hand it would be pretty boring at times too. We are all a bit impulsive and pretty silly, and probably yes.. some of us most likely fall into the "tiny bit ecentric" catagory. hey.. it anyone out there wants to make a tv show about us.. as long as I get rich for it.. I'd be willing to give it a shot! (haha!) (NOT!)
So.. Miss Bethany (who is 24) for years has been saying how much she wants a chinchilla.. or as she calls them an enchinchilla.. kind of like an enchilada. This year as I was trying to figure out what to get her for christmas, I couldnt think of anything that would be exciting to her. then I started thinking about the chinchilla idea, not sure if it was a good one or not. but I looked on craigslist and low and behold.. I found some very nice people who had one, but felt that they werent giving her the attention she needed. So, my daughter Jen and I drove out to buffalo to check her out.. unprepared to bring her back with us, they offered to follow us home with the cage which is the size of a large dresser. So now, I've had this sweet little (sweet but very messy) chinchilla living with us, hiding in my craft room for a month. I've grown very fond of her and almost hate to see her go. Bethany was ecstatic about her, and cant wait to take her home! She has remamed her Furby poppins snuffleupagus, hippopotomus... and sometimes elephant. (I dont understand either... but if you know bethany, you dont question her, you just say, "ok Bethany .. thats nice!"
Bethany loves her new little friend, which I am quite happy about because I ve been thinking for the last couple weeks that maybe it had been a mistake to buy it for her. Not only does Bethany like little "furby poppins snuffupugus hippopotamus sometimes elephant", but I do think she likes Bethany as well.
Figgy and frannie have enjoyed furby this past month and furby loved them too. It was raised with cats and was used to playing with them. Figgy and frannie would stick their feet in as far as they could to touch her and then they'd both stick there noses through the bars nose to nose. they would lay on top of the cage and they were all quite comfortable with each other. I think they might miss her when she goes (hopefully today)!
In other news.. went to see blindside last night.. great movie! Sandra Bullock is perfect for the role. see it if you get the chance.. and its a true story!
I'll be back later! see yas then!
