Every so often I will wander over and have a look.. just to check if I am on there yet, I don't know why but I always feel like seeing my name on there will mean I am truly here forever. I have never had any reason to believe I won't be, but not being on that board sometimes gave me an uneasy feeling.
Yesterday I looked and FINALLY there I am!!
Benjamin Samuel Bear 26th January 2007.
Great huh? Except for one fundamental issue. 26th January is my Gotcha Day. Mum and Dad brought me home on 26th January 2008! I decided to point this out to them. Mum told me that I was 11 months old when the rescue got me in December 2007 so they figure my birthday is in January sometime. Since they brought me home on the 26th January they have decided to take this date as my birthday.
This is where the humans are assuming I am a dumb animal. Am I fooled into thinking this is a great idea?
by doing that they have cunningly ensured that my Gotcha Day and my Birthday are celebrated together and you all know what that means! One Cake.. One set of gifts!
the words.. tight and asses ... spring to mind!!
To add to my grumpiness we are in the midst of ridiculously heavy rain, according to the weather forecast (and i trust that like i trust a magpie with the crown jewels!) we are in for a month's worth of rain in three days. I have news for them, we have had a months worth in the last 12 hours! I think I may have my own personal lake in the garden if this keeps up for three days!! Mum keeps trying to drag me out for a walk.. hmmm I don't think so Mum.. you be a fool and go out in it if you like, but no way no how am i taking any leisurley strolls in that!
On a happier note, my lucky winning streak continues and it seems that it is catching.
The eldest bean won a PS3 and Kung Foo Panda game, My Mum just got an e-mail to say she won a DVD (Everyones Hero), and I won this wonderful booty..
over at Meeshka's Blog and all for doing what I do best.. moaning about my Mum!! If you haven't been over and checked out the "Week of 100" Challenge then do it NOW!! It's full of hilarious posts and is all in aid of a very good cause. Thank you Meeshka and Khyra!
Oh and last week I was in a magazine here in the UK!
Maybe I should pick the lottery numbers this week!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone.
