Catching up!

Well, hello Internets!  It's been almost a month since my last post.  Wow, that sounded like the beginning of a confession.  Today AAB Kathy got onto AB "Blog Helper" (I put it in quotes, mostly 'cause it's a lie) about being such a slacker.  So here we are, with a Catch-Up post!

Firstly, today was Hoodie Hoo Day.  Those of you who have been reading my Adventures for a long time know all about Hoodie Hoo Day, which is on February 20 each year (in the northern hemisphere).  It involves a lot of shivering, shouting, and arm-flapping, and ends with ice cream and pink lemonade.  At noon sharp, everyone (except me) in the whole library goes Outside to yell "Hoodie Hoo" and chase away Winter.  Here's what it looks and sounds like:

Warning:  NOT for the Faint-Hearted!

I would like to go ahead and apologize to the Northern Hemisphere if Winter does not end this year.  AAB Kathy sneaked back behind AAB Britta for the Hoodie Hoo Day festivities!  AAB Rotten Ritchie even tried to fish her out, to no avail!  (She claims she was flapping her arms and Hooting along with everyone, but I can't see any evidence of it.)  If Winter doesn't end, you can send all of your snowballs and icicles to AAB Kathy at Thorntown Public Library.  We will forward them to her home address, where she will be forced to live in an Igloo until (at least) May.

AB Christine managed to take a few pictures of me over the last month.  Here's one that she calls "Two Cuties."

Only one "Cutie" in this picture!
Apparently that little orange-like produce is a "Cutie."  AB Christine loves to eat them.  I think they're great for knocking onto the floor.  I don't understand why I have to share picture-space with something that is obviously not as Cute as I am!

Here is a picture of me on a clean desk.  AB Christine spent an afternoon cleaning off her desk and filing papers Away.  ("Away" means she will never be able to find them again, especially if they are Important papers that she needs.)  She was all proud of herself since it has been an absolute mess since she moved in at the beginning of the year.


That lasted for about one-and-a-half days.  Now it's a total wreck again.  But at least we got a picture!

Lastly, I will leave you with a picture of me.  Right before this picture was taken, I was using my Powers of Bossiness to get AB "Blog Helper" to become a better Blog Helper.  I was also Bossing her to help me visit some of your wonderful Blogs over the week-end, since I miss you all so much!

Unfortunately, AB left the FLASH on, so instead you get to see a picture of me squinting.


Oh well.

Happy Hoodie Hoo Day!

We call that the "evil eye" and that should convince her to help you blog more!

We wondered if you were all celebrating Hoodie Hoo day or not! Glad to see a tradition being kept.

You're right, Tober. That wasn't for the faint-hearted. But we'd bet you SCARED winter away. :)

Good to see you, squinting or not.
