The nose does it for me every time

No, I told Son#2. NO. No pets. No extra responsibility. No hassle. No guilt. No vet bills. No emotional tug.

I've had pets, I've suffered, I know all the drawbacks, I'm struggling to juggle life already without them.

So where did we spend an hour last night, but Pet Store.

I know. Awwwww. Especially the way his nose kept crinkling when he looked at us.

Anyway, we haven't bought anything yet. Just investigating, you know? Research. Consideration. Evaluation. No rush, no decisions on the basis of emotion alone.

Okay, so you all know where I'll be the weekend after GRL... LOL.

OMG!!!! So cute. I really am sick of pets. Such a PITA when we go away and all their little foibles, like finding out it peed in your shoe... GRRRR.

Have a blast at GRL. I wish I was going but my life is in a state of utter chaos right now and instead of partying with you guys Friday, I get session 2 of my root canal. Whoppee. *sarcasm font* Have a drink for me and grope a cowboy or two while you're at it.

I'll pop a couple of the cowboys in the post to you.... ^_~

I hear ya on root canal - I'm still avoiding my dentist in case she does another one on me :(. I could make a cruel and crude joke about consoling yourself with all the things you'll be able to sink your teeth into *next* year - but I'm just not that kind of gal *g*.

Good luck, we'll be thinking of you, and will raise a margarita to you xx

I'll take an extra cowboy or two if Tam doesn't need them.

And seriously, the OMG! Cute factor there is killing me. KILLING ME.

Except, I know fat boy would eat him in an instant and look around for more.

Sigh. Can I steal his image though? Use him as an icon for happy days?

Yep, one bite and he'd be lunch LOL. The little dwarf hamsters were even cuter and even more fragile! Son#2 and I decided they'd never live a week in our house without getting lost or trodden on :)

Anyway, what am I saying? I'm resisting, remember??? ^____~

Oh an yes, he'll make a fab icon :)

LOL!! So cute!!! :D

*sigh* I'm fighting the cute factor, honestly I am... :)

Looks like he's full of squee to meet you - maybe he's a fan?
Oct. 17th, 2012 08:52 pm (UTC)
Or maybe he sees my latest book as bedding material?!

Well with that cover he'd certainly be having pleasant dreams!

I can see the RSPCA corruption case against me unfolding....

You don't expect the hamster to be installed by the time you get back?

They are cute and really soft and strokeable - when they aren't biting, scuttling or peeing on you. There is a white one with grey spots sitting in my local Jollyes that I had a heard time resisting last weekend. We have all the hamster gear already, but I don't think having a large ball rolling around would be a good choice with the dogs on the loose. But there are so many cute toys - and you can get muti-coloured tubes - and extensions - and it is so amusing when they scuttle through the tubes - and even more amusing when they decide to turn around mid-tube when the tube is only a fraction wider than the hamster...

I will resist the cuteness. My #2 son has declared he isn't going through the hamster thing again and he was the trainer of the cutest hamster ever who didn't make it to a year old... (replacement hamster was never quite right and only lasted a few months).

OMG I hadn't thought about that... No I think I'm safe, he doesn't have enough money to buy all the gear without me LOL.

I was fascinated by the tunnel tubes too - it was like Crystal Maze for pets!

Will keep you posted! :)
