Twaddle from the Twitterverse by Gina The Min Pin

12 Apr

My good Twitter buddy @Pkitass recently asked me if I’d like to be a guest blogger. So, I’ve gone ahead and put paw to paper and come up with the following musing:

It happened again this week. Mommy read on the Timeline of one of her Twitter anipals that the pal’s fur-iend had unexpectedly passed away. Mommy asked if the pal had a picture of the fur-iend that could be posted for all to admire. The pic was produced forthwith, whereby Mommy promptly produced a stream of tears.

In general – and unlike yours truly – Mommy’s not a crybaby. She usually remains stoic at sad movies and even some hoo-man funerals. Yet, if there’s even a whiff of news on Twitter of a sick or moribund anipal, the waterworks are immediately underway.

Mommy claims that the origin of her intense feelings of grief go wa-a-a-ay back to when she was an impressionable four-year-old, and her paw-rents took her to see Bambi when the original film was re-released in theaters in the 50’s. No need to rehash the movie’s plotline – we ALL know what happened to Bambi’s mother 😦 Problem was, Mommy’s Mom & Dad regaled people with stories about how Mommy would burst into tears for seemingly no reason at all for weeks after seeing that movie, and – when asked why she was crying – Mommy would reply “Bambi has no mama!” Traumatizing, indeed!

And, supposedly from that time forward, the slightest mention of any anipal being out-of-sorts, or going (heaven forbid) Over The Rainbow Bridge elicits this incredibly strong reaction from a customarily emotionally balanced hoo-man.

I’ve often commented in my Twitter Timeline that Daddy just doesn’t “get it.” He’ll tell Mommy that she may want to reconsider being part of a social networking site that has such a capacity to upset her. What Daddy doesn’t see is Mommy’s amusement generated by news of anipals’ virtual weddings and birthday paw-ties, or her joy in being able to communicate real-time with like-minded individuals in countries where she has no other contacts.

So, yes, it would be better if Mommy didn’t tear up at efurry anipal’s barf or sniffle (Dam U, Bambi!), but then she’d miss out on the pleasure evoked by all those other pithy 140-character messages. She’ll willingly take the sour along with the sweet. Keep those tweets ‘n pics comin’, anipals!!!

The Weekend

12 Jul

Did everyone have a great weekend?  I know I did! Saturday I had an unbelievably incredible, life altering, mind bending, melt in your mouth steak dinner, mmmmm, it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo delicious that I forgot to take a picture of it to share here.  Needless to say it was a Masters creation. 

On Sunday afternoon SiSi and her friends decide to go to the movies, it turns out that I am cool enough to be invited, and since I played my cards right I also got to drive them there.  How cool am I? So off to the movie theater we go.  We watched “Grown Ups” a comedy with Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and Salma Hayek.  I must say I ended up laughing out loud several times. Sisi even asked me to keep it down. Personally, I enjoyed it lots! Or maybe it was the tub of popcorn we ate that made me giddy? Hmmm??? No I’m pretty sure it was the movie that was making me laugh.

After the movie we drove around box hunting. It’s funny how when you need a box there aren’t any around, but when you don’t, they are piled high on the sidewalk.  Once the perfect sized box was located we then swung by the McDonalds drive thru to pick up a snack (wink wink).

Tiki Tiki didn’t mind at all of our choice of snack; he jumped right into it! Num num num… he stuffed his little face with a cheese burger and a couple of fries.  Made sure there weren’t any fries left in the container, double checked in the bag.
Once he was satisfied he fell into a food coma in my arms.

Tiki Tiki making sure he didn't miss anything
