Share Your World – Week 61

Angry Bird isn’t sharing his world. Only his birdshit…

It’s very much been a Spring kind of week, and I spent the morning in the park trying to soak up some much needed Vitamin D while also adding to my vast collection of squirrel photos that keep you all coming back to this waste of cyberspace.  That little grouchy jackass in the top photo was taken this past weekend, though.  It figures I finally set up to get a few squirrel pics, and the best shot I got was of this pissed off avian.  Don’t let his sour mood bring you down…

Now, let’s share our world with Melanie’s fine questions for this week

I’m happy to share, but please don’t bogart my world…

Can you bake a cake?

I’ve never tried to bake a cake before.  I can bake brownies from a mix…

No, not…. uh…. THOSE kind of brownies.

Or I should say I once could make brownies from a mix.  That hasn’t been possible since my oven went kaput in 2011.  I have yet to feel a need to replace it…

What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?

As if there could be anything else?

Nonononono guys.  Not that that isn’t nice…. but…. no.  Not with just me and the cats here anyway…

Seeing one of these guys…

Hey, how’s your day going, buddy?

No matter how corny it may seem, or how much I think I may be tired of squirrels after a decade long obsession with them…. seeing one of them doing its little squirrel thing is always a day brightener.  Getting a good picture of one of them doing its little squirrel thing is enough to actually put me in a good mood.  Today, I am in a very good mood…

When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?

I never was much of a sandwich person, even when I was a kid.  I like my bread burnt, and honestly, the crust is the good stuff.  When I “toast myself to death,” as my Mom used to call it when I’d sit down with a toaster and a loaf of bread and polish half of it off at a time, the absolute best part was always the heels… which are pretty much all crust.  Kids aren’t very bright, you know…

And yet, they’re still hard to eliminate…

What’s something your family would be surprised to learn about you?

That I’m adopted…

Wait! How would they not know that?

That’s the joke, dude.  Damn, don’t you have a sense of humor?

Please feel free to share some gratitude from this past week (or month or year).  This is purely optional of course, but it does tend to uplift everyone (I happen to think) to read some happy and/or joyful thoughts or view some uplifting pictures. 

Well, I sure wouldn’t want to be the killjoy that doesn’t do any uplifting of people’s spirits.  I am thankful that the weather seems to be turning and that I was able to actually get outside this week.  Do you have any gratitude you’d like to share with everyone, Mr. Angry Bird?

Sure. I’m thankful that I have a tailfeather you are all invited to kiss!

    When I was a girl I was told that if I ate the crusts I’d have curly hair. This was considered an encouraging idea, btw. My hair is curly, so I guess it worked.

    • I’ve never heard that one before. The one food story us kids got told that has stuck with me was to make sure we didn’t swallow any watermelon seeds, because they’d sprout and grow in our bellies. I made damned sure I picked every seed out of my watermelon!

        Well it is partly true – I eat watermelons WITH seeds and my belly is big enough to house a field of watermelons. But it is not only the belly … I have some melons higher up, too …

  2. I have a cold and I feel like every time I sneeze the alarms go off. I think it’s illegal to have a cold right now.

    Hey, burnt toast is good, and so are the crusts and heels. 🙂

  4. Thanks Evil Squirrel for Sharing Your World!! Burnt crusts and all…. O_o

    Um. Thanks for sharing that robin pic (too) because robins always brighten MY day. Love their cheeky attitude and aggressive territorial ways…sadly up here in Tiny Town USA, there are no robins (none in my area any how) because the kestrels, hawks, falcons and so forth consider robins a tasty treat. A wise bird stays far the f*ck away, especially if its ‘dinner’ to another, bigger bird. The LBBs (little brown birds) of course are too small to eat (I guess) and they fill the hedges and bushes and all around here, so it’s not that we don’t get any birds, just no robins (or doves, chickadees, starlings …) Ah. Anyway thanks for the pics and the always amusing tag lines. I live for those…. (even without a really ‘special’ brownie!) 😉

    • Thanks for identifying that bird… I’m a terrible ornithologist. I’d have assumed it was an oriole… and then probably only because I know it looks like the baseball team mascot!

  5. Though not nearly the fan of squirrels that you are, I will admit your posting of images of them brighten my day. Here’s to a weekend full of the little monsters…er Sciuridaens.

  6. I’m a fan of burned toast too and my Mom thought it was horrible but I ALSO liked practically burned scrambled eggs with my burned toast. I must have been an arsonist in a previous life? Squirrels ALWAYS make me smile and lucky for me we have our woods all around the house and LOTS of squirrels to keep me entertained. I remember my Dad when describing someone he thought was perhaps a little nuts as being “squirrely”. I still use that adjective – it comes in handy.


    • The waitress at Golden Corral always checks to make sure I got the best of their burnt food since she knows I have a taste for it. They had a scorched pot roast smothered in gravy out a couple weeks ago that had me tempted to put the whole thing on my plate! Love that burnt food…

    Um, so what have you used to cook the last 9 years’ worth of pizzas with no oven? Me no understand…

  8. I liked the heels too. LOL.
