#SoCS: Mini Mouse

Gibbs the cat here! I’ll be taking over for the human today. She didn’t quite know what to do with the SoCS prompt of mini/maxi and I understand. I was scratching my ears too until I spied the mini mouse (one of many) at the foot of the cat tree. Mini mouse and her brothers and sisters are some of my favorite toys. The little things bat around easily and never squeak, not even when they’re in the clutches ofRead more

A Generous Christmas from the Pod

“Jingle! Jingle! Jingle” *snooork* “Wha? What’s happening?” “Wake up Ziva, it’s almost Christmas!” “You woke me up for that?” “Yeah, aren’t you excited?” “We still have two days and a sleep to go before Christmas.” “I know, I can barely wait!” “Wait for what?” “For Santa to bring me…I mean us…toys.” “Like all the toys you hide under the bed and dresser and couch?” “Some are irretrievable.

Anyhow… The “What the Heck?” office “toy” is: Introducing 3M’s Document Wedge, otherwise known as a copy holder. Fooled you all, exceptRead more

What the Heck?

Since the story of my Saturday visit with mom is currently a disjointed mess, I thought I would give you a silly reason to like or comment or simply consider me daft. Last week, I became the possessor of two new toys at work. I love them both. This is one of those toys: I am not going to reveal the second toy until you answer the question: “What the heck?” Without searching the internet, tell me why I purchased this object.Read more
