Share Your World – Week 19

Hey 19!

It’s time to take you along while I slide on down the world sharing thing we do each Tuesday with the questions supplied by Melanie.  The Share Your World graphics department is working lots of unpaid overtime with yet another new logo… this one apparently paying homage to the Hubble Telescope, or at least what the images it provided us would have looked like if it had a better lens than my shitty camera does…

Space doesn’t really look this cool. It’s all trick pornography…

What social stigma does society need to get over already?

The fear and hatred of those who choose to feed squirrels.  I can’t count how many cashiers, including a few co-workers, have given me the evil eye as they ring up my nag of squirrel corn with disgust.  Feeding birds is fine and dandy and beautiful and holy and all that shit.  Feeding the squirrels makes you a shithole anti-American communist.  Pick up a bag of squirrel corn and try taking it through the register…. you’ll see what I mean.

Squirrels are Satan’s pets, and you’re going to FEED them?!?!

What was the last photo you took?

Technically, it was this photo that closed out last week’s Shelf Critter Theatre episode with a bad Star Wars gag…

There were no dragons or Pokemon in the film that I’m aware of…

Ignoring the images I snapped for that story, then the last photo I took was on Thursday of this gift that I gave my Mom for Mother’s Day….

Not Mitzi… I kept her.

Mom just moved into a new place, and it desperately needed a unicorn to liven up the joint.  BTW, can you tell from this photo that after several years of being manhandled and posed for your entertainment that Mitzi’s looking a bit worse for wear.  Poor girl’s gotten quite dingy… and not just from the dirty deeds she does dirt cheap.

When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?

I’m a champion snooper and I honestly couldn’t tell you when the last time was… or recall anything specific where I found out something interesting (I find that about 90% of the time, snooping is a huge waste of time).  I knew where my oldest sister used to stash her love notes from school.  Yeah, I read them.  Geez, what kind of annoying brother would I be if I didn’t?

Payback’s a bitch… literally.

What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?

I tend not to find any beds to be particularly comfortable.  I’m at least used to the one I sleep in at home.  Hotel beds are the fucking devil.  I never sleep well in hotels, and I think it’s because the maids are trained to tuck in the sheets so far that you’d need the jaws of life to extract them from underneath the mattress.  I tend to look down on people believe it’s some kind of necessity to make the bed every morning, and I think it’s because I hate made beds period.  Untuck those damned sheets!!!  How does anyone find it comfortable to slip their body into a sardine can like that?

What it must feel like to sleep under tucked in sheets.

Can being grateful change Your World?

Not mine.  The touchy feely stuff does nothing to change how I see and experience the world (And personal attitude does nothing to change the world itself… don’t fall for that one, folks!).  That isn’t to say an attitude of gratitude might not make others enjoy their world more…

Zeeba is grateful that I let her spill Buster’s blood all the time… and look how fucking happy she is!

  1. what when your sis now knows that you read her love notes? my parents read mine.. I think they have a lot in common with squirrels…

  2. Ally Bean says:

    There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who tuck in the sheets and those [weirdos] who don’t tuck them in. I grew up in a house with strict bed-making rules. I know how to make hospital corners because of it. It’s a life skill that never makes it onto my resume.

  3. I happen to like squirrels. A LOT. So %$#@ to those who have squirrel hate, they’re just blind and deluded IMHO. Of course the greedy squirrel who steals ALL the bird food is likely to be unwelcome, but I find it ultra cool that there is such a thing as “squirrel corn”. I’d never heard of that, and so it is proven that SYW can teach a person something now and then. Thanks Squirrel for Sharing Your Nutty World…. Um. I never knew Mitzi was so teeny. Somehow I thought she was bigger…heh. I don’t know if you saw, but there’s a new inhabitant of my own Shelf Critters domicile…Henry the Hedgehog. He’s pictured in the post entitled (NOT) Ugly…. well I think he is anyway. He escapes routinely because in reality he’s Ziggy’s bitch. I got tired of dog drool all over my carpet because Ziggy lusts after the bears and other critters that live up there. Henry is an actual dog toy, complete with squeaker and Ziggy adores him.

    • Squirrels LOVE hard corn! You can buy it still on the cob and they make feeders you can put an ear in (I had one until my tree slowly ate the hook up which snapped the feeder apart!)

      Mitzi is one of my biggest critters… but even she’s dwarfed by the size of her “twin” I bought for my Mom. I’ll be sure to check out Henry next time I’m reading… sounds like he can trade war stories with Buster.

  4. Squirrels are the shit! I feel the deep, deep hatred for those that feed pigeons, those flying rats cause all kinds of shit, literally, like on my car! I’ve never had a squirrel do their business on my car, therefore they are my friends. Take that you dirty pigeon feeders!

    More and more hotels use duvets instead of sheets. The only sheet you have is the one you lie on. The bed cover gets an encasement and you slip under that combination. In Germany sheets are a thing of a long lost past.

    • I had heard of duvets (Someone once bought a Rainbow Donkey printed duvet from my Cafepress shop… biggest single commission I ever earned!), and looking at them, I even think we sell them at Mecca. I love their untuckedness… nothing above the bottom sheet should ever be tucked under the mattress!

      • franhunne4u says:

        They have become really common all over Europe, not only Germany. When I went to England in 2000/2001/2002/2003/2005 and 2006 there were not many beds made up with sheets, under which you slipped … most had duvets.

  6. ghostmmnc says:

    I wouldn’t want to run into that cashier with the frowny face! Squirrels are so cute, so don’t see the problem.…no tucked in sheets, that’s just too uncomfortable. 🙂

  7. Ours, people hate squirrels. They ask how can they feed birds without squirrels coming to eat. I tell them always to give good enough to everybody. I just can’t understand why not to feed those cuties. About lady Mitzi, a certain style life makes girls look worn, but not our Mitzi. She is always the queen in your critter gang.

    • And your squirrels are even cuter than ours are. How can people be so heartless to adorable creatures like that?

      Poor Mitzi needs a bubble bath… I think she would enjoy that. Maybe too much…

  8. I am with you on those stupid fitted sheets. I HATE them. Garry likes them, so I had to threaten him with death to make him stop trying to tuck the down comforter under the mattress. As for the squirrels, they eat at LEAST 10 pounds of seeds a week. I really don’t mind, but if I don’t tell them it’s time to go, they will eat 40 pounds a week. Where do they PUT all those seeds?

    • Squirrels are only interested in the germ of the seeds (It’s really the only edible part of any seed)… so they can eat a whole bunch of them without really getting full. Same with the hard corn that I fee them. It’s also why there’s always such a mess of shells and husks under the feeder…

  9. I’m a squirrel feeder and proud of it – of course they get their food out of the bird feeders but I think “sharesies” works. As for beds and tucking – when we went to Europe I discovered the wonderful world of duvets and no sheets. Love it…..the freedom of it all !!!! It also reminded me of an episode of Seinfeld where George and Jerry were on a trip and George was telling the hotel maid that he wanted his bed “no tuck” and Jerry wanted “tucked”……hilarious.


  10. I agree, tucked sheets in the summer are especially dastardly!

  11. draliman says:

    You… feed… squirrels???
    So the sheet thing is a world-wide phenomenon then. The first thing I do in a hotel is rip all the sheets out. I’m guessing these places don’t use duvets because they’e a lot harder and more expensive to clean.

    • I’m surprised they even provide a bed in every room since that has to cost a fortune. Why not just throw a bath towel on the floor and make guests sleep on it. Less work for the housekeepers as well…

  12. I never make my bed and I always snoop. I’m an expert at moving through the house like a ninja, especially at night. lol
