Archive for the ‘Freak of the Week’ Category


I had a dream last night that I’d developed a line of hamster products called “Petit Hamster Life”.  I had hamster habitats, wheels, toys, pellet foods and bedding, all emblazoned with a sweet and adorable logo of a hamster wearing a purple beret. My products were flying out of the pet stores and I couldn’t keep up with the demand and was feeling a bit stressed, I remember.

Visionary stuff, I know.  Don’t try and steal my idea or I’ll kidnap you and trap you in a human-sized critter habitat I’ve made just for thieves and charlatans.

This Freecycle post is making me consider expanding my line to include gerbils, guinea pigs, ferrets, and yes, even hedgehogs.

OFFER: toy making kit for hedgehog-

Thanks to clemencywright for turning us on to this offer via Twitter

Desperate; Need a camera badly!

Sad photographers seem to be the theme of this year’s “Waah Waah Week”  This came in just yesterday and it makes Monday’s post seem like a walk in the park, albeit without a camera but I digress.

What is it with artists and their lot?  Given a gift but cursed for a lifetime.  Van Gogh and the ear, Frida and her failing body, Francis Bacon with his asthma and a suicidal lover, I can go on and on. Good God, gonna have to go to Costco for the tissues. Huge flood AND fire. It just isn’t fair.  It’s not. Sniff.

Ok, maybe the photo is a bit of an innuendo but imagine our dilemma in trying to keep this rated PG-13.

Yes, this little prize was obtained via Twitter so don’t kill the messenger. We bring you the posts we’re dealt and you can decide whether to fall out of your chair laughing in a combination of mirth and disgust or you can shake your head in disbelief.

I think we did both…in that order.

Please don’t laugh.  A wonderful possession has to know that its needs will be taken care of, that its new owner is worthy of it, and being a sharpener, who let’s be honest, is always having pencils shoved into it…well, it’s vulnerable and trusting and Freecyclers should be screened properly for eligibility.  Right?

OFFER: Electric Pencil Sharpener ” pick up Dxxxxxxx Bxxxxxxxxxx “

This wonderful electric sharpener is available for pick up any time

by Friday of this week.

How is it that a parrot can get an Artist-in-Residence and I can’t?  

WANTED: Paper doilies, coloured card, etc. for artistic parrot-
Bizarre one this, but our parrot Doris has been invited to attend as Artist-in-Residence at the Flatlake arts festival in Ireland in two weeks’ time. I’m looking for plain-coloured craft-type card or paper – and especially white or coloured paper doilies – anything without printing ink that she can use to create pecktures or other mixed-media artworks. Doilies are proving hardest to track down. (Seehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8Xtjj09HM0for short film,’Doris the Painting Parrot’, featuring her with actor-director Ken Campbell, her previous owner.)
