Jim's a Bear Now, Too

Jim and I are still in Canadia. We fly back tomorroo. It will be good to see Stompy, Blinky and everyone in Manhattoo, but I'm really going to miss Jenn, and all my new friends in Canadia--Leone, Spike the Cat, Chuck the Cat, Lester and Joe.

Jim's birfday is coming soon, so Jenn got Jim the Oxford Companion to Food. It's a big book with everything you can eat in it. Turns out there are all kinds of things that humoos eat, not anything like caaaandy.

And Jim also got his Chreesmoos presents to take home, but he opened two this evening. Jenn got Jim a beautifoo pottery bowl with a Bear in it. And Leone made Jim a beautifoo Bear hat--with Bear ears!

*much clapping of paws of Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky*

Now Jim can put on his hat and be a Bear while eating caaaandy from his Bear bowl. They were great presents!

OK Bye

Spike: Do you guys smell anything?

*much sniffing the air of Bears*

Blinky:: Oh no! Look!

*pointing of Blinky and turning of Bears*

All the Bears: Jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmmmmm!!!!! (Cried out like Captain James T. Kirk in “Wrath of Khan”, but in Bear voices)

Calliope: On no! Jim forgot to take the garbage out before leaving for Jenn’s. And he didn’t even pull the tie top closed.

*much angry hopping about of Bears*

Stompy: We have to do something, Bears.

*much tugging on yellow drawstring of garbage bag with little Bear paws*

*the garbage bag topples over, one broccoli stalk rolls out, a foul-smelling green puddle starts to spread across the floor

Stompy: Well this is going from bad to worse.

Very Excitoo, and a Little Bit Nervoo

Tomorroo I go on my first Walkaboo, with Jim to Canadia to visit Jenn, Leone, Spike the Cat and Chuck the Cat. It's the first time I've gone travelloo with Jim. And it will be the first time I've ever been on a plane. I'm very excitoo to visit a socialist paradise, and get to do bum yoga with Jenn, and meet Leone and Spike the Cat and Chuck the Cat in persoo. And in... uh... kitty. But the thought of flying has me a little nervoo.

Spike and Papito have both flown on long trips, so they told me what to expect. And Jim said I'll be with him at all times. It should be fine.

*much trepidation of Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky*

I'll be glad when it's Monday evening, and I'm all safe at Jenn's.

OK Bye

Bears Without Caaaandy

No, in this case, going without caaaandy is a good thing. We're taking part in Knitters Without Borders. We're going to give up caaaandy for a week, and send the money we saved to support Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders. We heard about this on the blog blogs of our Bear allies Jenn and Julia.

Here is the link to Knitters Without Borders for more info:

Spike is the only Bear who knits--he holds the yarn for Leone when he is in Canadia. We all support the cause.

OK Bye
All the Bears

Oooh! A Christmoo wishlist is a really good thing to make for our friends and allies (we got the idea from Jenn). We don't want someone getting confoosed about what we like and getting us the wrong thing.

So, what do all the Bears want for Christmoo?

Stompy: Caaaandy!

Blinky: Caaaandy!

Spike: Caaaandy!

Sargeant Mauja: Caaaandy!

Daphne Rose: Caaaandy!

Papito: Dulces!

Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky: Caaaandy!

Calliope: Caaaandy!

Essie: Caaaandy!

Ollie: *pause* (Spike's voice): Caaaandy!

I hope that clears up any possiboo cofusion.

OK Bye

Please help our friends the cows and carrots

We don't like chemicoos and pesticides and geneticoo modifoo stuff in our caaaandy. And we don't like to see our friends the cows mistreatoo. That's why the Bears and Jim buy local proodooce from the farmoos market whenevoo possiboo, and like to buy organoo proodoocts. But the governmoo is trying to sneak through legislatoo that would weaken what it means to say something is organoo. Like, they put a bunch of chemicoos in an orange ziploc baggie and call it a organoo carrot*.

And the governmoo isn't enforcoo organic standards when it comes to dairy prodoocts. So they do horriboo things to cows, and then give them lots of antibiootics to cover up the horriboo things they did, and still call it organoo. And the governmoo looks the other way.

If you want to buy an orange ziploc baggie full of chemicoos, that's fine with us. But you shouldn't get an orange ziploc baggie full of chemicoos when you think you're buying a carrot.

Here is a good site to find out aboo that kind of stuff.

OK Solidaritoo
