Ok...so after my talk with Shak this week, I decided I may try to do a segment on the show to talk about science stuff. In fact, I am thinking about calling it "Science Stuff". I could explain all kinds of things like about clouds, and rainbows, and volcanos, and engines and things.
What does everyone think? Maybe I could teach Shak a thing or two. That'd be cool.
Are there topics that folks might want me to talk about?

Ok...I still don't know what I should do for a Halloween costume.
I was thinking about going as the scariest thing imaginable...as Carrottop....but I didn't want to get my beanie all clogged with ugly red fuzz. So now I don't know what to do.

|Whoo Hooo! I went to a con!
Well, we took a week off from the show last week. I sure am glad we did. Last Sunday, was the 14th annual Mr. Potato Head convention. It's a really fun time thta I always look forward to. They dropped the entry price to $89 this year. And I tell you, it's the best 3 hour concention you'll ever attend. Once inside, I was surrounded by potato-heads. I got to see rare out-of-production potato-heads, limited-edition potato heads, and special prototype potato-heads. I even found a battery operated beanie so now my Mr. potato Head will have a spinning propellor just like me.
I saw some concept potato-heads that never made it into production. There was the Terminator Potato Head. It had eyes that glow like Poink's and was really scary. There was Street Walker Potato Head with 5 shades of lipstick and a purse that can hold credit cards. I aslo saw the Ice Follies edition Potato Head. It just spins around in an unispired way on the fake ice for hours. There was also a Potato Head that vibrated. I don't know why they didn't make those, they have the biggest smile I've ever seen on any toy.
Anyhow, I sure am glad I went. Now I'll be counting the days until the next convention: Dr. Suesapalooza.
Until next time everyone.

I made an amazing discovery today. There is some kind of incredible time/space vortex that we overlook every single day. I’m not sure why scientists haven’t devoted more time to analyze this phenomenon. It’s certainly more mysterious than the statues on Easter Island, and darker than Poink’s NASCAR underwear (he says he gave them racing stripes). It’s the space under your bed!
I went under the bed this morning, and I found a treasure trove of ancient artifacts. I found 5 left foot socks, a Cheeto that wasn’t quite ripe yet (because it was still green and fuzzy), the lost Ark of the Convenant, the Lindbergh baby, Jimmy Hoffa, and the secret stash from Al Capone’s vault. Then, after I moved all that useless junk out of the way, I found the real treasure, my old yo-yo!
I didn’t think I’d remember how to use my yo-yo, but it all came back to me really quickly. I guess it’s one of those things that you never quite forget. I rolled it along the floor and had tons of fun chasing that string! Boy what great memories it brought back. It almost reminded me of my favorite yarnball!
There was also something scary under the bed. It was a horrible monster of some kind. It growled and made all kinds of weird noises. I was scared, but I was determined to find out what it was. I ran and got my flashlight, then investigated further. It was really dusty under there, and then I found the monster. It was even scarier than I dreamed. It was Java eating a slice of anchovy pizza while wearing Rasvar’s edible underwear! I yelled really loudly and ran out of the room. I’m afraid of ever going back under the bed again. Next time, maybe I’ll send Nerdferret under there. His eyes always look up, so he’ll never see the monsters anyway.

|Does the Easter Bunny go to the movies?
You know, I was sitting here thinking about how much Mach’s head looks like the Magic 8 ball, when I wondered what kind of movies the Easter bunny likes. Do you think he goes for the great romantic movies like “Pee Wee’s Great Adventure”? Or does he like horror films like Richard Simmons’ “Sweatin’ to the Oldies”?
I wonder if the Easter Bunny gets any kind of discount when he goes to the movie theater. My friend Randy gets a cast member discount at a lot of places, and Poink is always saying he likes to use the five finger discount…he says he buys as much as he can that way. Do you think the Easter Bunny ever has to show his ID whenever he buys something with a check? I’d recognize him right away..he’d be the 5 foot bunny that hides eggs under the sofa cushions. I tried hiding eggs under the sofa cushion once, but Java sat on them.
Well Mr. Easter bunny, it’s almost time for me to go look for all the eggs you are going to hide. Just if you decide to hide some in a movie theater, make sure it’s at a PG rated movie.

|My Computer Problem
I had a major problem recently. It was even worse than the time that Poink put silly putty in Mutt's Blue Star Ointment jar. My computer had a breakdown this week. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Every time I tried to open a browswer window, this weird picture of Poink and Bambi riding a rocking horse would appear and the computer would say "Giddyup baby, You're my Tonto!" It then went into a slideshow presentation of Javafrog and various kitchen appliances.
I had to reload the operating system and recalibrate the Flux Capacitor so that my my packets wouldn't time out with the sockets on port 6665 while the syn/ack flooding kept the rest of the network from being abe to access my toaster oven over my wireless home LAN and auto flush toilet system.
I finally found out what caused the problem. Crappy snuck onto my system and downloaded what he thought was a patch for the Sims. In reality, it was half of the NASA database collected form the Hubble Space Telescope..which just happened to have the file name "Crest". I think anybody's computer would have problems if it downlaoded 3,211,624 gigabytes of data..don't you? I'd just like to know how Poink and Bambi got into the Hubble files. I didn't think the Hubble could see Porn stars.
Anyhow, now I can get back on the internet regularly do my crayola research. Anyhow, I need to go now because I see Poink trying to download a picture of Richard Simmons onto a show laptop. BAD POINK!

|The Real Truth
Hi, this is Tard, err, Tod. And my new medication is working, so now I can tell you what I really think of you all, and this show.
I hate all of you. I hate this show. I think it is dumb. The only reason I do it is to work with a great lesbian such as Poink. I think there are more fun things you can do with your time, such as clean belly button lint. As Poink, the master of quality acting would say, blow me. So, ptbbbt.

|Why does technology freak us out?
Why is it that our cast members can do anything on a computer, but can't operate a household appliance? Poink came to mr complaining that his VCR wasn't working correctly. Not only was the clock perpetually blinking 12:00am, but his copy of "Bambi Does Baltimore" would only play backwards.
Mutt asked me to help heat up his Rhode Island Hot Weenies. He couldn't get the microwave to heat up food. He could only get it to play "Jingle Bells". I also decided not to let Simba on my laptop anymore. When I powered it on, it booted into an Amiga operating system.
Rasvar worries me the most. For some reason the electronic scoreboard in his room kept flashing between "I Love Gyng" and "Please let the Jaguars Win!"
I better get back to the show....or Rasvar may might somehow start another Fluff and Such Video and post his chat with Gyng in the blue scren background.
Bye for now.

|I hear Jingle Bells. Wait, it's only a ringing cel phone
We were outside decorating Yappy's house today, when Mutt's cel phone started ringing. It freaked me out because it started playing "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window." I think it's really weird that everyone puts a different ring song on their telephone. I mean, no matter what song you put on a phone, when it rings, everyone is going to reach for their own phone anyway.
Also people put really strange songs on thier phones. Some phones play Jingle Bells all year long. Other people have really obnoxious songs that you can hear in the next county. I think Poink is the only one who has a normal cel phone. He always has it set on vibrate. I think he may be worried about it becuase he's always calling himself to see if the vibrate mechanism is working.
I think people need to understand something about cel phone etiquette. First, if you answer a ringing cel phone in a movie theater, it is perfectly acceptable to cover you with chewed Milk Duds. Also, if you answer a cel phone or log onto IRC from a PDA in church, lightning may strike or you may crash your Mustang just before Halloween. It's not really a breach of ettiquette, but I think it's kind of tacky to answer your cel phone while you're sitting on a public toilet. You never know if it's going to autoflush.
Anyhow, I think that I should get ready for the next bit on the Show. Bye bye Livejournal.

|Pawpet Thanksgiving: We don't need a turkey...'cause we have Poink
Well, Thanksgiving is this week, and I'm going out to have dinner with my friends form the show. Everyone is supposed to bring something different so we can have a nice, big dinner. I am going to make some candied yams. I just have to decide if the candy is going to be Life Savers or Gummy Bears. Rummage said he is bringing a big pot of baked beans. Both Mutt and Poink are bringing dessert. They are going to make their special brownies that they guarrantee everyone will really, really, really, really, really like. Skippy is making spinach puffs. He said they will be extra puffy spinach puffs. Rasvar is bringing a Thanksgiving tradition: lumpy mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce in the shape of a can.
I have many things to be thankful for this year. I have met many new friends. My beanie survived another year. Poink has stopped filling my thermos with Whoop Ass power drink. And Java is not going to sing "Here Comes the Bride" at Harik and Raini's wedding. What he will be singing, we don't know yet. I'm also thankful that Rasvar has decided to teach me how to do the Fatty Dance. I think it's really cool...in a kind of "The Jaguars lost again this week" way.
I should be going now. Poink wants to use the terminal to look at his porn.

|It's not snowing ... but I see Christmas trees
I had to look at my atomic powered calendar watch today. It said it's November, but I didn't believe it. 'Cause you know what I saw at the Walgreen's? I saw butterscotch flavored candy canes. That's not too weird, cause I actually like them. But I saw them growing on Christmas trees. Christmas trees aren't supposed to bloom until after Thanksgiving. Who planted the early crop this year?
I really really like Christmas. It's a fun time of year. I get all kinds of boxes in pretty wrapping paper. That's the best part of Christmas..is playing with all that wrapping paper. I pull it off the boxes, and roll around in it for hours and hours. Poink likes to take the boxes away while I'm playing with the paper. I wonder if Poink likes the boxes as much as I like the papers. (The way he grabs them after I pull off the paper, I think he does.)
Another thing that I love about Christmas is watching the blinky lights on the tree. It reminds me of a Star Trek display console...all pretty and blinking ready to track Santa across the Mutara nebula. I can hear Santa now..."Donner, give me Warp factor 6..Rudolph we've got naughty children at heading 126 mark 9..ready the lump of coal transporters."
Anyhow, I gotta go figure out why the Christmas trees are blooming...maybe someone had some candy cane Miracle Grow....
P.S. Yes, I watch the X-Files with no lights on and I hope that the smoking man is in this one.

|Is it time for a change?
I was hanging around the studio this weekend, talking to Ezra about his new glasses. He's got a lot of them and they are very colorful. It got me to thinking, maybe I should go for a new look as well. Should I get a new hat to replace my beanie?
I could go for something kind of colorful, or maybe something much more suave and debonare. Or I could even go to DisneyWorld and get a pair of Mickey Mouse ears. I'd be afraid of Disney trying to sue the Pawpet Show for copyright infringement if I wore that. Maybe I could just get one ear and call it an Oreo on my head.
Or I could put a propellor on a lot of different kinds of hats like Ezra has lots of different colors of glasses. I think it would be pretty neat to see a propellor on a motorcycle helmet. I bet it would spin really fast and I'd go WHEEEEEE a lot. Oooh, or maybe I could put a propellor on a plunger and put that on my head. No, that would be a bad idea. Poink uses a plunger all the time to unstop his toilet, and I wouldn't want him to use my head in his toilet.
Or maybe I could replace the propellor on my beanie with a windmill. That way I could help solve the energy crisis, and get a new cool hat at the same time! Or maybe I could build a new hat. But what to make it out of? Tin foil? Popsicle sticks? Lego's? Hmm..I'll have to think about that. I better get going for now, Java just took some pickles into the Seal's bedroom, and the Seal is barking like crazy.

|My nominee for the Nobel Prize
I wish I had the ability to nominate for the Nobel Prize. Admittedly, there are many worthy items out there that deserve the Nobel Prize...like penicillin, superconductive materials, quantum computing, and Vanilla Coke. But I think one of the greatest achievements in the world is that miraculous substance...BUBBLE WRAP!
Not too many substances can both raise and lower blood pressure. (Just ask Poink when I pop it at 3am if it raises his blood pressure.) It can also make a wonderful lumbar support for napping, and most important of all...it's a great toy! I can make it sound like my knuckles are popping, or like I'm making popcorn, or like I'm eating a lot of pop rocks. Today, I popped 2,435 little bubbles in the sheet of bubble wrap. That's a new record for me! Sometimes I like to play hopsctoch on bubble wrap, and hear the little poppity-poppity pop pop pops under my stubby ferret feet. You know, some people are afraid to tell anyone that they like to pop bubble wrap. They just look at those little bubbles thinking..."Oooooooooh..I wanna pop that bubble! It needs to go POP!" BUt they don't because they are afraid someone will see them. I say, don't be afraid...pop that little bubble. It makes you happy! (But then so does Vanilla Coke..maybe they should both get a Nobel Prize.)
On a side note, I wonder what would happen if I mixed Vanilla Coke and Blue Pepsi. Hmm...might be as bad as the time I fed Poink beans and broccoli. The resulting explosion almost destroyed the studio!

|I never found such happiness in a ball of yarn
You know, sometimes you just don't know what you have until it's gone. In particular, I was very upset recently because my very favorite yarnball had gone missing. It wasn't just an ordinary yarnball, it was special like me. It was 14 inches across and had a multicolored beanie pattern in the threads. I love that yarnball. Sometimes I would curl up with it and fall asleep dreaming about chasing the ball through a field of Lithium isotopes and Checkerspot butterflies (which are still an endangered species).
Well, I looked everywhere for my yarnball, but couldn't find it. I was pretty sad. Jojo offered to buy me a lot of yarn to make a new yarnball, but it just wouldn't have been the same. Jojo said that the thing to remember is not that you don't have the yarnabll anymore, but think about all the gnarly waves that we shared together. The only waves that I shared with my yarnball were when I accidentally dropped it in my bathtub. It got soaked and smelled like bubble bath for 3 weeks. When I finally had given up all hope of finding it, I spotted a yellow thread coming out from under the kitchen table. It was my yarnball! Ruammage had broken one of the table legs, and used my yarnball to prop up the table while he washed a bunch of carrots.
So, now I have my yarnball back. Rummage promised the next time that he washes carrots, he'll do it his bedroom...so I won't lose my yarnball again. I hope nobody else ever loses their yarnball.

Wow. Have I been busy today. First I woke up and had my morning Rice Krispie Marshmellow granola bar. Then I took my post breakfast nap. After I woke up, I moved to my lab and took my "post-breakfast-nap" nap. That was most refreshing.
I decided to be very productive today. So I worked with my hydroponics. You see, Poink has a constant craving for prune juice. He also loves habaneros. So I've been working on a cross pollination project with plums and habaneros. Plenty of fiber, with that great Mexican taste. I know he'll love it! In fact, I was so sure he'd like it, I went ahead and made a batch of juice from the crosspollinated fruit and popped it into his refigerator to chill. I'll hafta remember to let him know that it's waiting for him when he gets home.
Also we had a teeny bot of excitement around the studio. Java decided to go swimming in the gutter during a thunderstorm. Well, he got struck by lightning! I know the odds against that are pretty astronomical, but the weird electrical flippers he was wearing probably attracted it. His eyes kinda popped out and he started mumbling something about swimming in a vat of cottage cheese with Nell Carter. Then the lightning struck him and he just sat there saying "rosebud". Someday I will figure out what that means.
Anyhow, I need to get going.

|Why do we ask?
I was trying to make up some new anagrams with the symbols in the Periodic table today, when a very odd thought hit me. When something is really bad, why do we want to share it? Like when you open a container in the refrigerator and it smells bad, why do people say, "WOW! Smell this! Isn't it awful?" Or if you get something that tastes weird, why do people say, "Taste this..isn't it the worst thing you've ever had?" Wouldn't it be nicer to say, "Um, excuse me, but I've accidentally cross bred a new form of moss lichen with penicillin on this meatloaf, and I don't think you want to come anywhere near it. It smells like sardines and saurkraut and will probably make you want to puke." At least that would be the polite thing to do.
Anyhow...enough musings about that. My favortie anagram based on the symbols from the periodic table (symbols can be used as many times as needed) is:
I CaN HArNeSS ONe SnOBBY FOXeS GaS.
Arthur and I had a lot of fun playing with the periodic symbols. He also taught me how to tie your shoelaces when your paws are stuck together. That's a pretty cool trick...even better than when he ties a cherry stem in a knot with his toungue. I didn't even know he had a tonugue. Bye for now.

|It was art night!
Hello everyone. Well, tonight was lots of fun. It was art night with all of my friends. Poink was sculpting vixens with CheezWhiz. Rummage was making a collage with all the newspaper scraps he dug out of Mutt's trash. I would never have guessed that Mutt had so many Amway catalogs. Arthur was doing some really cool wood burning with his magnifying glass and a halogen lamp.
I turned my attention to the fine art of painting. I love to paint. Naturally, I couldn't find a canvas when inspiration hit. So I grabbed a sheet off of Java's bed (yes, I made sure it was clean) and really went to town. I thought I had really created a masterpiece. After all, how many people can make a velvet Elvis with finger paints? But of course, Poink had to spoil it for me by pointing out that Elvis never had 3 eyes. I thought it was a happy accident..after all, it was a cute blue eye right under his ear. And the finger paint didn't run all that much. It just lookied like he had an extra fat roll above his shoulder.
Maybe someday I'll be good enough to sell Velvet Elvis's on the side of the road like all the really great artists. I could sell them to every resident of the "Fifth Wheel Trailer Park". I wonder how Elvis would look with a propeller beanie on his head?

Buy have I been busy this morning. First, after breakfast, I spent the morning playing with my slide rule. I LOVE doing calculus with that little wooden stick! It's sooooo much fun! After calculus, I played with my Tinkertoys. I made a model of a Benzene molecule, a windmill based on a 19th century design, and a horsie. But the horsie's legs were too long because I ran out of little red sticks, and had to use the long green ones instead.
Last night, my good friend Jimmy No-Neck came over and we watched movies. We decided to put the audio on Dolby Mono, just becuase we thought it would be cool to do it. Somehow, I think that watching the KISS farewell concert in mono kind of defeated the purpose though.
I also talked with my friend Kagemushi. He was telling me about how his new haircut is really cool and he suggested that I get a mohawk too. I thought about it for a while, but it may make my beanie sit lopsided on my head. So I'm not gonna get a mohawk.
I may try to call Arthur for lunch. He's a pretty good cook, so long as he doesn't serve MeowMix Meatloaf. It's always too crunchy...blech!
I'm looking forward to the Christmas in July show this week. It's always a lot of fun. I just hope Java doesn't pull my name. That frog is just a little weird. Last week I asked him to bring over some tools to help assmble a new shelf for my crayon collection. He brought me a tire iron, some Silly Putty, a spool of fishing line, and a peanut butter sandwich. I didn't mind it so much, except that he spent half the afternoon making casts of his eyeballs with the Silly Putty. That, and he likes to listen to "Stairway to Heaven" played backwards...it sounds scary, but he sings it perfectly. It's sooo freaky.
Anyhow, I need to try and head out for lunch.

|My new Livejournal!
Wow! This is my first entry on my new super private livejournal. Now I can talk about all the cool stuff that happens with me and my friends on the Pawpet Show.
I was shopping at a dollar store yesterday, and I found something that made me realy happy. They had some old boxes of Crayola crayons. I looked through them and what do you think I found? A brand new, never used PRUSSIAN BLUE! For those of you who are not Crayon connoseurs, they stopped making Prussian Blue (and started calling it midnight blue) back in 1958. I've been looking for this crayon for years! So it's sitting right next to my mint condition 1971 maize crayon. They are so pretty together. I bet if they could talk, they would say, "Get me out of this box! I wanna color!" But they can't because they are stupid crayons and crayons can't talk. Mutt thinks that collecting crayons is silly, but I think his collection of Drew Barrymore underoos is kind of weird, so we are even.
I also got even with Poink yesterday. Last week, he put Ex-Lax in some brownies that he gave to me. So yesterday, I put a methylene derivitive in his Coca Cola. Later that day, he started peeing blue. After hearing him scream like a little girlee ferret, he came out of the bathroom with a glazed lok on his face and said, "I just peed like a smurf." I couldn't stop giggling.
Anyhow, I should go for now. 8-(]:) <- This is me with a beanie on. Current Mood: bouncy
