Friday 5 - Fall Classic

Meet the latest incarnation of the library hamster, M.C. Hamster. Can't touch this. You can't see it in the photo, but there is a word bubble over him with the words to Can't Touch This on it...My, my, my...

This week’s 5 over at Friday 5 honors the World Series. Not that I know anything about this, but luckily knowledge of the game isn't really needed to answer the following 5 questions. If I can do it, you can do it!

1.According to the cliche, if you “spare the rod,” you “spoil the child.” Who in your life was probably spared A Rod while growing up? I guess I was. My mom was not a punish-y type of mom at all. I wasn't particularly naughty and didn't push many boundaries so it probably didn't spoil me. Probably.

2.In how many directions this week did you feel you were being Yanked? Oh, I think we all tend to feel "Yanked" in countless directions every single day. This week was certainly no exception. I just felt a bit less able to cope with it than usual.

3.On whom have you depended for relief this week? You guys, for sure! Plus, DR, Milly, Girlie Girl, Kick Back Dude, and the 3 Musketeers that I work with. Looking at that long list of dependable people makes me feel lucky :-)

4.Who deserves a standing ovation this week (or even a hip-hip Jorge)? I'd like to applaud some of our blogging friends. Let's hear it for Churlita, who just bought a house! Give it up for AlienCG, who is very successfully participating in NaNoWriMo! And finally, show some love to Sebastien, who is producing art like a maniac and putting it on the most awesome t-shirts ever! Yay for you three!!!

5.When did you last have a taste of Champagne? It has been years and years. I couldn't even say exactly when it was. And it probably wasn't genuine Champagne, but rather a sparkling wine :-)

Thanks for participating, and have a grand slam of a weekend! I look forward to seeing tomorrow's CONCOCTIONs!

My little snowboarder dude has gone! Gone! Gone I tell you!
Sorry, not read anything else, I'm too emotional at the moment.

I find that hamster slightly sinister, I think its the teeth!

Sebastien said...

HAha thanks for the standing ovation :)

The hamster does strike me as oddly sinister. Have you seen Robot Chicken, it reminds me of this skit they did of the ninja turtles, he looks like the rat guy:

Don't know if you've seen that show but the humor can be quite disturbing!

I love seeing what the hamster is wearing these days. He's definitely a stylish rodent.

Thanks for the ovation, I am very happy with my performance so far. I have no doubt that I will complete this project.

Daffy: I can't help you if you refuse to follow my instructions. *sigh* What am I to do with you?

FW: haha! That is MC Hammer's actual mouth. I mean I printed him out, cut out his mouth, and put it on MC Hamster. Probably not to scale or anything...

Sebastien: I have seen Robot Chicken, but not that one :-)
This hamster is going to undergo many metamorphases in his tenure here at the the library. Maybe next time he will be less disturbing. Don't count on it though.
And, you're welcome! You totally deserve it!

AlienCG: He is a master of disguise. Maybe one day he will portray one of your brethren.
I know you will complete this project! You are the writingest Alien I know!
