Cannibalistic Hamster

My step-daughter’s mom is leaving town for a week and asked if we could take care of  V’s pet hamster.

I must say, I’m not really fond of the vermin. I L-O-V-E animals , absolutely adore them. But when my kids were younger, they had pet hamsters too. Djungarian hamsters to be more specific.I think they were about 5-6 of them. We didn’t know at the time, but we had a female and a male hamster, and well, I don’t need to tell you the specifics of what had happened, but we ended up with a bunch of hamsters.

Anyway, one day, I realized that we were missing one. I frantically looked around the house to see if it had escaped, checked the cage, checked under the furniture, in all of the rooms, but it was never found again. A few days later, the same thing happened. I asked the kids if they took the hamsters out to play and lost them (My friend had once lost his hamster while playing in the couch with it and that hamster too, was never found again. The hamster went into a hole of the coach and never came out, yuck) But the kids almost in tears and had said that they didn’t.

In the end hamsters kept on disappearing until only one was left, covered in blood. Only then did I know that we were the unfortunate owners of a cannibal hamster. Ta-Da-Daaa!

I wouldn’t go near that thing anymore, I was traumatised. So I gave it away telling the new owners to definitely never buy him a friend !I don’t think that I ever told them why. Then, I told the kids that he too  had disappeared, bad mama! But they know the truth now. Like the time I replaced one of my son’s fish when it died. “ Euh,Mom, why does my fish has more freckles on it’s back”…I can’t remember what I had said, but knowing me, it was probably a load of baloney. Oepsie!

Now having this hamster stay with us for the week is making me uneasy. It took me some time before I would go near it and now that I have, he looks kind of cute. Not in a “I’m going to hold you in my hands so you can eat me cute” just cute in a fluff ball kind of way. Yet, I can’t help it ,I’m still holding a grudge on the entire hamster species. While I’m writing this post, it’s looking at me with his black googly eyes…eating.

BTW, did you know that according to Uncyclopedia, these rodents are communists? Building an army? Click on the link if you don’t believe me.

Oh well, I guess it will only be for the week. If our cat Snowflake doesn’t make the hamster …“disappear” that is.  Moehahahaha!

Times vs Grown Ups simelarities?

When I first saw the pic on the new cover of Times magazine I though to myself three things :

  1. Ouch!
  2. She is so pretty ! Wow!
  3. Tihee! Hey, that scene from the movie of Grown Ups.

Ouch because I breastfed both of my kids and I even nursed one of them until he was 20-21 months old and believe you me, I wish I would have stopped once he started teething but he however though differently.

Yes, I think this woman is pretty, I don’t know why that came up in my mind. Probably because I know what breastesess can look like after nursing for some time. They don’t look like that. At least, I don’t think they would. Do they? Oh boy, nevermind mind.

And now Grown Ups. Common, many of you must have though of this movie right away, Right? How could you not. I think that it was one of the most funny moments in the movie. Ok, there must be others, but I can’t stop thinking of this one perticular scene:

Take your stupid pic but leave me aloneeeeeee!!!

Since the advent of cell phone cameras, people have been craftily taking their own photos in bathroom mirrors in an effort to look either cool or alluring, usually using the trout pout…  YUCK! Often times this backfires terribly as you can see by just typing “mirror picture fails” into Google search.

I never really have understood why people take pics of themselves while standing in front of a mirror. Everyone seems to be doing it, teens, celebrities, cats….but this pic is actually cute.

A boy wanting a pic with his cat…..the cat doesn’t seem happy about it though.

How to make your kid “unfriend” you on Facebook.

I came by this motivational whilst “Stubbling” and felt immediately connected to this mother.  When I sometimes see my son’s status it surprises me. He never talks or acts like that at home. Teens, weird.

So I was telling my son about this funny pic on top and he looked at me with dread in his eyes. “That’s sooooo not cool mom, I’m going to have to unfriend you if you post it or do the same.”

OK then, I’m not posting it to my status but posting it on my blog where thousands of others can see it. Hey, it’s not about him and it’s not on my Facebook. Win-Win!

Invasion of Cats – Sleeping with cats

Can you spot the teen?

Our cats are attracted to our our beds like I am pulled to a newly bought tub of  Ben & Jerry’s (embarrassing). It’s crazy, we usually don’t let the cats sleep with us in our beds, but my son is sick at home and wanted the company, so within the minute of leaving his bedroom door open, this is was the result.

I would like to think that it’s because our cats love us so much, but I’m more inclined to think that it’s because we ‘re a pretty efficient source of heating instead.

After about five minutes later my son yelled from his room : “Mom, can you please get the stupid cats out of here, I can’t sleep.” 

Hey, at least they weren’t lying on him, or up on his face like they usually do.

Sleeping with cats?

Motivationals for teens

Motivation

“Motivation is the driving force by which humans achieve their goals.” – Wikipedia

And because I want to achieve the goal of a tidy house I try to grab the attention of my teens by trying to be funny. But however funny I tend to find myself, my kids can’t even crack a smile.

I LOVE motivational posters and have used one already to express the fury that I was feeling inside. It helped so I tried to be original and make 3D ones . I was proud of myself for coming up with such a wonderful , witty idea that I started to scour the net, just to make sure that I was the only witty one on the web. But no, I found out I wasn’t the only one with this “brilliant” idea. Some wittier student was before me, using self-made motivational posters to try to get threw to his very very very messy roommate.

Oh well!

I’ll let you know how it worked when I get back home tonight.
