Laugh! I'm on Candid Camera

Hola kitties! Did you know tomorrow is International Moment of Laughter Day? I hope reading my blog provides you with a moment of laughter three times a week. I try hard to be the jester to make you laugh—or at least smile. My Friday free-for-all should entertain as I tussle to find a happy medium between the Foto Frenzy, Friendly Fill-Ins and Art. I hope you'll find something to tickle your funny bone.

Laugh! I'm on Candid Camera

Let's start with some fotos. I'm on Candid Camera even when I'm sleeping.

Laugh! I'm on Candid Camera

The Tabbies o' Trout Towne chose #289 from either October 2008 or May 2010. Dunno for sure since anything goes with TW's numbering system. Somehow the same foto shoot has two different creation dates. I'll bet it's the earlier one. It is what it is. I'm stretched out like a salami with half of me hanging out of the cat bed with my "famous" paw thrust out. Look how muscular that paw is too. No leopard sheets today. Pop was using his boring yellow ones. Pop loves when I stretch out with my paw out but TW thinks I might have my neck stuck out cos I can't breathe. I'm still here so I can breathe. She has so much trouble saying I look cute.

For foto #848 I was fotographed on the kitchen table which is in the dining cubby which is only called the dining cubby cos the table and china closet were both in the peeps' old dining room. The condo is one "big" room with a hallway that leads to my two bedrooms. TW was trying to read the newspaper after Pop went to bed so I jumped on the table to see if she was eating anything help her. As she's wont to do, she got out the flashy box so I would leave. I didn't. Instead she snapped a bunch of fotos with and without flash. We had a similar session the other night. When I was younger, I always held out hope that I could innerrupt her enough that she'd play with me. Now I just go to sleep on my gym. She feels bad enough that she'll walk over to pet and kiss me. She should feel guilty. Thanks to the Florida Furkids' Allie, Raz and baby Noelle for selecting this foto from February 2010.

Rumor has it we're running low on requests for fotos. In the comments, simply throw out a number between 19 and 8350 and I'll add you to the queue. It would be nice to see some of my new followers join in the fun, along with those of you who have been playing. Each week we run two unedited fotos from the list, give you a shout out and tell you a bit about what's going on in the foto.

The Friendly Fill-Ins are hosted each and every week by 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader. They think up the fill-ins and I think up the answers. My answers are underlined and in italics. Each week my image relates to one of the fill-ins. This week it relates to numbers one, three and four. I'm gonna let TW answer number 3, since I have furrends and not friends. After reading her comment, neither does she. I hope she isn't too long-winded and doesn't start crying and stuff.

1. Blogging keeps me young and it's the biggest bond I have with TW. The downside is it also keeps TW too busy to play with me.

2. Good content and a belief in yourself is the secret to blogging for 10 years. I'm celebrating my 10th Blogoversary later this year. It's hard to believe I was only a few years old when I started blogging as an offshoot to my Twitter account but there were things I needed to say in more than 140 characters.

3. A friend who you have to be careful what you say to them is not a friend. You should be able to say anything to a friend and even if they disagree, they'll know where you're coming from. You should be able to joke with friends without them taking it the wrong way. I have about 185 FB "friends" but I can count my real friends on two thumbs. You have to work hard in a friendship and I guess I don't work hard enough. I'd rather spend time with cats than humans.

4. Right now, I am thankful to anyone who read this blog, be they furrend or foe.

It's time for the art portion of our show post. I added some brightness to this graffiti art from several years ago. I'm surprised no one has graffitied over it but it's much too stunning for anyone to try it. I picked this piece showing a moment of laughter on International Moment of Laughter Day. It was originally titled "Brick and Molar." Get it?

I'm gonna tell you the woofie jokes I was laughing at so you can get a chuckle too. What do you call a dog in winter? A chili dog! HAH! Why did the dog chase his tail? He wanted to make both ends meet! Bada bing! What happened when the dog went to the flea circus? He stole the show!

This is my early entry for The Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum which provides a platform for anipal artists to showcase their latest digital, Photoshop and original art. No talent? No problemo. There are hundreds of one-click apps for desktop or mobile devices that will turn you into a regular PiCATso.

OK, let's hear you shout out some numbers between 19 and 8259 for the Foto Frenzy!

  14. Your sense of humor might just rival ours for diabolical-ness. Just one of the reasons why we love you, CK!

  16. Great post, CK! I would rather spend time with cats than humans too, no question! 10 years is an amazing blogging achievement. We choose numbers 45 (hee hee) and 118

  17. Ohh my...the table one should be framed so I can show mom what a good kitty does on a table. She won't let me on the table....unless she doesn't see me on the table...hehe

    Let's see #35 from your photo vault, CK.

    Your fill ins are right on. With a friend you can say anything and they won't be offended as long as you don't call them dirty names.

    Your artwork is great. You look like sofa material.....cool!

  24. It is true. 140 characters is just too limiting. I can't even say hello in that few characters. Have a great week.

  27. I like how you're stretched out like a salami. I am going to think of that as I pass the deli counter at the grocery store this morning. And your Brick and Molar art is fabulous! I pick #6149, Paisley picks #801, and Webster picks #4999. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. CK, those are some great Fotos, as always. We especially like the first one, including your "like a sausage" description. :)

    "Brick and Molar" is super cool. And your "chili dog" joke ... MOL!

    How about 33 and 413?
