Things I Have In Common With Squirrels

1. I am a mammal.
2. I think nuts are interesting, and sometimes I dream of hoarding them.
3. Hibernation sounds wonderful. *
4. People don't like it when I eat out of their bird feeders.
5. Some parts of my body qualify as "bushy".

*I researched to make sure squirrels actually hibernate. Here's the answer: Ground squirrels DO hibernate, but tree squirrels don't. So there ya go. Consider yourself educated.

Mr. Fabulous said...

People put cheeseburgers in bird feeders?

Angry said...

No... more shrubby than bushy.

I'll send you some birdseed so you don't end up losing an eye when someone shoots you with a bb gun for raiding their bird feeder.

Flash your bushy tits at the screen one more time and a Post may magically appear at my blog.

Just don't do it while I am at work.

Later Y'all.

I always feel so educated after I visit here.

Oh, I'll miss my colony of 13-lined ground squirrels from my front yard - they're like little miniature prairie dogs!

Oh, and your eyebrows aren't THAT bushy...

I was SO SHOCKED at you at first, but then I realized that you said you were thinking of HOARDING and not WHORING!

Bushy, huh? Have you tried a Brazilian wax?

Oh my GOD Janna..I just listened to the recording of "Almost One Morning" again..and it gave me chills how good it turned out! You should really blog about it and put this link on there to direct people to one of the best recordings of your works!

I'm with you on #2!!

Julie said...

Hmmm you are interesting.

Janna said...

Bee: I hear that a lot...

Onionboy: Thank you!

Mr. Fab: Who knew?

Angry: You've noticed, huh?

Shelli: How thoughtful!

Meloncutter: Can I do it while you're asleep?

Lynda: That's the whole point!

Morgen: I always worried you would try shaving them while I was asleep. (The eyebrows, not the squirrels)

Metalmom: Oh, I've heard of Brazilian waxes, but they don't sound very pleasant...

Kyle (Juby): There were a few intonation problems here and there, but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out. You did amazing on your solo!

Steve: You can gather all the nuts in New York, and I'll gather all the ones in Michigan, and we'll see who has the most by Springtime! I dunno if that's fair, though.... I hear there are a LOT of nuts in New York. LOL. :)

Julie: Heh! I hope you mean that in the nice way, and not "Let's send someone to her house with a straight-jacket tomorrow."
