Crescent Voles

I don’t fully understand it, but my son said on Monday evening that he needed to bring in to school the next day (of course) some kind of baked good for chemistry class. Something about volume, which somehow segued into the idea of voles and raisins. Luckily we had a tube of crescent-roll dough on hand. And here is the result of his culinary handicraft. Cute, no?Photo: "crescent voles"

Actually, I don’t understand it all. But afterwards he said his Crescent Voles were a big hit. :)

Mix-and-match Pride & Prejudice

I’m a big fan of Pride and Prejudice, so naturally this graphic gave me several minutes of mix-and-match joy. My favorite Mr. Darcy? Whose portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet do I like best? Who’s the most indelible Mr. Collins?

It’s Caturday!

This item recently crossed my radar, and I kind of want one. Even though I don’t have a cat. But isn’t it cool? And cozy?Photo: a felted "cat-cave"This is cool too. Also, slightly unnerving.

This made me actually LOL.

Meme: vintage photo of a cat: "JENKINS PREPARE THE FINEST CARPET, I WISH TO VOMIT"

 

And of course, no Caturday is truly complete without a special guest appearance by . . .

Grumpy Cat meme: "LOVE IS IN THE AIR? GET OUT THE GAS MASK"

 

I love you too, Grumpy Cat. :)
