  2. I so totally agree on the comfort food. Nothing beats a good cup of noodles. I use Knorr Aromat instead of butter.

    Btw, you're one silly girl to scan yourself!

  16. hehe!! I love your cat! My kitties do that too and we always humor them and say "where, oh where is Anastasia?" Even though we can see her but sticking out from under the chair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh I love buttered noodles, and kitties that think they are hiding! What cuties!

    ReplyDelete
  18. This post made me smile. My cat thinks she's being stealthy, sitting super-still watching the pigeons... whilst chirruping loudly for mysterious feline reasons of her own.

  19. The picture of you scanning yourself reminds me Tori Amos, From The Choirgirl Hotel album.

  23. I love just noodles with butter, sea salt, and black pepper. And I'm ever-envious of your owlish-things collection!

    ReplyDelete
  24. NOOOODLES! :) I personally prefer mine with oodles of cheese. Squid is too funny! My pups do that all the time I just poke them lightly in the bum and they turn around like 'dang it, you got me!' I also LOVE the fake mushrooms in your pots- I have little terracotta worms with smiley faces in my pots.

  45. It's always in the little things! I love buttered noodles... my Bear makes noodles with butter, olive oil, pesto, oregano and basil (sometimes fresh from the garden) that I crave constantly. I prefer bow tie noodles, because they are fancy! haha

    Also, I now wish to scan myself!

    I love it so much!

  52. i have something i'd really like to share with you.

    It's totaly dweebish but i have to tell you.

    But fortunetelling i don't have any sort or social networking site i belong to.

    So best I can give you is my email,

    sabeck23@gmail.com

    What I would like to say to you actually means something, at least to me it does & i'd rather say it via email.

  56. You forgot kittens who tear around the house, sounding like a herd of elephants. I get that one a lot.

    It's usually followed by "mysterious crashing sound that never truly reveals its source"...

    ReplyDelete
  57. mmm... there's nothing better than pasta with butter. I love it with freshly cracked pepper, salt and a bit of freshly grated parm cheeses. Yum!

  58. Haha, the last picture reminds me of a Portuguese expression: "Gato escondido com o rabo de fora."
    Translated literally: "Cat hidden with its tail out." xD

  59. What IS it about button jars? My mother always had one, and my grandmothers too. As a little kid I always loved admiring all the colorful little buttons that filled the jars. They're just SO lovely in a beautifully simple way.

    ReplyDelete
  60. #1 - I am jealous of your exquisite button collection! My one jar just cringed.

    #2 - That mug is fan-freakin-tastic, where-o-where did you get it?

    p.s. I adore your friday favorites posts!

    Warmest Wishes~

  61. Haha, kittens who think they're hiding are ridiculously funny. My little cat does it all the time - he "hides" behind a water bottle and is convinced I wouldn't notice when he hops on the table (which he isn't allowed to do).
