You Want It All, But You Can't Have It

I can't believe it is Saturday again. But after the week I've had I am so, so glad. This week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt word was chosen by one of my blogthing twins, Ananda Girl @ Oodles of Funch. And the word is...EPIC. A challenging one for me! When I hear EPIC now, I just keep thinking of those internet jokes...EPIC fail! You know? But then I thought some more....what do I have to show you that is EPIC. And it came to me. I give you...the EPIC journey of the little hamster who lived in the library.

When he first came, Camper disguised him as Abrahamster Lincoln, an EPIC historical figure. He has a stove pipe hat and a serious beard.

Next, GCPS designed this fabulous costume. Behold this member of the EPIC band, Flock of Hamsters! He gets to carry a guitar, an iPod, and rock a totally tubular new wave hairdo.

Most recently, Milly and I decided to move in a darker direction. Don't be frightened, as you must recall he is only in costume. I give you....Honey Baked Ham-ster. Wouldn't that be an EPIC feast? hee hee!

I hope you have enjoyed the EPIC adventures of our little hamster friend thus far. He has a long way to go.....

I'm looking forward to your EPIC photos with And who will Ananda Girl tag for this next week? If I am not mistaken, it will be the two year anniversary of this little amusement! Can't wait, can't wait. And if you are looking at this and not playing...why? It is fun. You can play too :-)

Excellent stuff. I like what you've done with the hamster (now there's a statement you don't hear everyday). I like the latest direction you've taken.

By the way, that title seems familiar.

Those hamster pics are epic. I don't do it anymore, because I haven't really been blogging on the weekend anymore. it was getting too stressful to try to fit it in to all the other stuff.

AlienCG: haha! I guess that is a phrase that might not make it into casual conversation :-)
Yeah, we both had that song in our head when we heard the word EPIC!

Pamela: He's an actor, a ham if you will, he enjoys the challenge.

Tara: Thanks! I think Abrahamster is a great leader :-)

Crazy4Coens: You noticed his eyes! Yes, I thought a slightly alarmed look might be in order :-)

Churlita: Thank you. And I hear you. I seldom have that much going on, myself, so I am all in.
