Boomer Kitty Vs. The GIANT box of treats!

For those of you who aren’t in the know, me & Kylie rescued a wee kitty a couple of months back who we lovingly named ‘Boomer’ …the reason why we decided on Boomer was because he is like a small explosion in a kitty suit, as everywhere he goes he attacks, destroys & very occasionally eats everything in his path!

Anyway, after a couple of weeks of what can only be described as chaotic ownership we then decided to start-up his very own Twitter account so we could record the numerous calamitous events that Boomer always seems to always find himself in, in fact he now has over 200 followers who regularly enjoy his furry brand of mayhem!

So THEN we decided to set up his very own Amazon wishlist! I know it seems ridiculous but hey, if Kylie has one then why not Boomer? …He’s just as lovable & as his popularity grows by the day I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before he has more followers than the population of Bolivia, Guatemala & Constantinople combined (including their under lying regions!)

And today Boomer got his first present (I did say he was a popular kitty!!) which was a HUGE box of kitty treats courtesy of our good friend Livvy (aka Smiley_FacEsS on Twitter) …so we obviously took some pics, not only as a Thankyou to Livvy (thankyou, thankyou, thankyou) but so that you can all bask in the warm glow of an explosive little kitty when faced with an insurmountable amount of treats!

Enjoy…

That’s not a moon!

Over the past couple of weeks me & my friend Janice have been building a lego death star… yes lego! Anyway, long story short it’s finished… all 4000 pieces of it!! The thing is HUGE & totally amazing, so a big thanks & kisses to Heidi for getting it for me, it is going pride of place, err… somewhere… somewhere Huge!

Rose

My lovely wife had the truly wonderful Janey Hamilton (former porn legend Veronica Hart) on her radio show last weekend  & (as always) they discussed many things about life, love,sex & the world in general, one of topics mentioned was the fact that Janey now produces mainstream movies & that her Latest venture is a Zombie flick called ‘Rose’ …which is basically, a goretastic, sure to be a cult hit zombiefest. Oh… and the twist!?? The heroine of the movie is a complete basket case who’s escaped from a mental institution!!!

Anyway, Janey mentioned they were looking for a tall Zombie… so Guess what i got ‘roped’ into? (C’mon, seriously… who DOESN’T wanna be in a zombie movie? …I LOVED IT!)

On behalf of her Majesty

Hi everyone,

Just thought i’d let you know about an Email i recieved from Queen Elizabeth II earlier today, she asked me (seeing as i have such a popular blog) to pass on this message… enjoy!

Andy

________________________________________________________________________________

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II:

In light of your immediate failure to financially manage yourselves and also in recent years your tendency to elect incompetent Presidents of the USA and therefore not able to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up ‘revocation’ in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated sometime next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

1. The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘colour,’ ‘favour,’ ‘labour’ and ‘neighbour.’  Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ without skipping half the letters,  and the suffix ‘-ize’ will be replaced by the suffix ‘-ise.’  Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels.  (look up ‘vocabulary’).

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ”like’ and ‘you know’ is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf.  The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter ‘u”and the elimination of  ‘-ize.’

3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists.  The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you’re not quite ready to be independent.  Guns should only be used for shooting grouse.  If you can’t sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you’re not ready to shoot grouse.

5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect.  At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables.   Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon… Get used to it.

8. You will learn to make real chips.  Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps.  Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all.  Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of  known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager.  New Zealand beer is also acceptable, as New Zealand is pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer.  They are also part of the British Commonwealth – see what it did for them.  American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat’s Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys.  Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters.  Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialogue in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one’s ears removed with a cheese grater.

11. You will cease playing American football.  There are only two kinds of proper football; one you call soccer, and rugby (dominated by the New Zealanders).  Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

12. Further, you will stop playing baseball.  It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America.  Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable.  You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the Australians (World dominators) first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

13. You must tell us who killed JFK.  It’s been driving us mad.

14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty’s Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream)  when in season.

God Save the Queen!

PS:  This letter is intended for those of you who have a good sense of humour (NOT humor)!

About The Artist:

Andy Appleton Action Hero

Andy Appleton started sketching as a child, roughly the same time after he received his first comic book, he hasn’t stopped since. Andy isn’t philosophical about his art; he isn’t political about it either, he doesn’t claim his work contains hidden meanings… he creates things that are cool to look at.

The greatest compliment Andy ever received was when, at his first art show, thieves broke in & stole all his work after only the first night.

Andy Appleton Painting

Andy’s work is heavily influenced by graphic novels, cartoons, graffiti & “Whatever he likes the look of” …he doesn’t tend to talk about modern art much, it makes his head hurt.

Andy is now 39 years of age, you can find his art on street corners, body parts & living room walls.

Andy’s Mission statement:

Art is subjective, Cool tends to be universal.
