rain, rain go away!

this was the scene this morning in my bedroom. i can't even see out my window there's so much rain! and last night the thunder and lightning kept me up for hours! it was so scary. thank goodness i had a roommate to cuddle with.

i'm staying in bed for the rest of the day until this frightful storm passes. i can't risk my fur getting all wet!

baking with bear!

i decided to be a reeeaaallly nice roommate the other day and make my roomies some dessert - peanut butter cornflake bars! they were super tasty and super easy to make (no baking involved, which is good because i don't like to put my furry self too close to the oven)!

but it's now 5 days later and my paws are STILL sticky! i am never working with viscous peanut sauce ever again.

getting inked.

so i've been thinking about getting a tattoo (furtoo?), because my roommates both have them and frankly, i feel a little left out.

given that inking up my beautiful fur is a pretty big deal, i've been spending all my free time lately thinking up the perfect design. first i was considering a salmon, since it's one of my most favorite things! but then realized while wildly tasty, a fish definitely isn't a classy enough tattoo for me. even such a nice fish, like the salmon.

then i contemplated getting my favorite quote - "the bare necessities of life will come to you" - from The Jungle Book, but realized that may be a bit too
long for my little body.

finally, i decided on the letter B (for Bear!). B is my favorite letter, and minimal and classic enough to fit my lowkey *but fabulous* style. so i went to the craft store and bought a package of letter stickers, so i could try on some B's and figure out the best placement for it.

my roommates liked it here on my chest, so i could show it off like a little (B)adge...

but i prefer it back here, next to my adorable little tail. plus then the B will have a double meaning! teehee.

my 15 minutes...

last night was the season finale of one of our favorite show's - america's next top model! we were sooo hoping for allison to win, but we'll have to settle for her coming in 2nd place.

speaking of the show, i don't think i've ever talked about it here, but i was actually featured in an episode two seasons ago!


here's the screenshot in case you don't believe me...

i'm the adorable bear that whitney is holding in her arms.

there i am!!! on television!!!

i know, you ask - how do i appear on a modeling show, and not as one of the model contestants?! it was a travesty. i think they discriminate against bears.

PS - i know some of you may be skeptical about how snowy white my fur looks there, but the camera crew had MUCH better lighting than my roommates do when they take pictures of me.

PPS - speaking of my lovely fur, do we like my new header?! i've been working on that for weeks!

cinco de mess.

so apparently i got a leetle bit out of control last night after my day-long cinco de mayo fiesta. the floor is suspiciously gritty this morning. i blame those pesky margaritas! my roommates, however, blame me. hmmph.

so being the good little bear that i am, i decided to clean up the apartment this morning. i've never attempted vacuuming before - i don't do chor
es! - but since unemployed roomie was busy, i decided to heft the big old machine out of the closet myself and start cleaning up the floors to the best of my abearability.

little did i know how hard it would be to maneu
ver the big stupid monster! by the time i got into the bathroom my paws were burning, i had been wrapped in the hose three times, and i started feeling hot and delirious. this may or may not have contributed to the fact that i then put the vacuum a tad too close to our toilet paper holder...

uh oh.

and that wretched vacuum started sucking the paper in!! i stretched up to try and hit the OFF switch, but i couldn't reach it. hoisted by my own petard!

goodness. this musn't be two-ply!

the roll just kept on unraveling, the vacuum just sucking up miles and miles of toilet paper. when would it stop?! and what size rolls do these girls buy?!

stop the madness!

in a panic, i threw myself down on the bathroom floor and hoped that the crazy vacuum would just suck me up as well. thankfully, my roommate finally heard the ruckus in the bathroom and raced in to help. it took about five minutes to yank all that paper out of the vacuum hose. evil beast!

this bear is NEVER cleaning again!
