nice marmot


Okay, this picture definitely deserves some explanation. First, it was taken and posted at the request of Starflower. This is Puffball, our one year old, semi Siamese obnoxious cat.

"Nice marmot" comes from a family favorite movie. If you can guess the movie, you'll win, well...we have a nice new crop of "marmots" here and you can have your choice...

So how did Puffball get to be known as a "marmot"? I had a dream the other night that I was wearing none other than a live marmot around my neck, and I went to a meeting for work and everyone was saying "Nice marmot!" I woke up to Puffball curled up on my neck. Puffball weighs about ten pounds, a significant thing to have curled around one's neck at 4 in the morning.

Obviously I'll pass on the prize, but I enjoyed TBL.

Yeah, that movie is a trip. I still can't believe how my kids quote from it...(they do know that the F word is to be limited!!!)

What is it about cats and shoes?

Deb said...

dharma bum- just mark an eight, dude! :)

Laura- I don't know... Puffball and The Hermit have a mutually hostile relationship, and those are his shoes...
