Chasing a USB mouse?

Hee hee. I love the "Dude, WHAT?" look!

Have you been to the Dr yet Nathalie?

 
At 12:43 PM , Blogger Stacy said...

"Now hold still!!! I KNOW this plugs in somewhere!"



LOL; thanks for the best laugh of the day Q! That's going some when you're up against disapproving rabbits let me tell you!

 
At 12:47 PM , Blogger Arwenn said...

Maybe Mim thinks it's a cable for your camera and that if she can destroy it you will no longer be able to post embarrassing photos of her underneath Venus.

Tomorrow morning. Cesare threateneed to become violent if I ever so much as THINK I might get into work instead. He's dragging me to the doctor instead. I am a bit reluctant as it is a little bit of a third world experience (settings are beyond seedy), but in no real position to fight.
I guess I'll just have to flog the minions remotely.

Mim the Tuffet is just unclear on how to email for help.

Venus looks mighty pleased with herself.

Hope Mr Lear doesn't take it into his furry head to sit on Mab so!

:snort:

This sitting on the the head thing is evolving with time I think.

Makes me think of that lovely line from Serenity:

Goin' on a year now I ain't had nothin' twixt my nethers weren't run on batteries!

 
At 12:49 PM , Blogger Dread Val said...

Mim's trying to work out how to garrote Venus… if she only had opposable thumbs.

Nathalie, take care of yourself and be a good patient!

Hee-hee! Such funny Fiends!

I don't know what Lear the Huge does, he hasn't come out of the closet yet when I am there.

Fods I am tired, long week...

Nathilie, do feel better, this is a nasty virus this year, everyone I know who has had it is not having any fun at all....

My Mom posted a bunch of photos of their two dogs, one of whom constantly uses the other as a pillow.

Awww....so sweet!

 
At 1:24 PM , Blogger Jess said...

Hee hee! :D I guess Mim's just comfy.

 
At 1:52 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Brain dead - can't think of funny thing to say, but Stacy had me grinning like a Cheshire cat. Yup, Mim wants to plug Venus in....

Arwenn, your mother's dogs are glorious.

I think the Bengal Bee Alliance is up to something. The pose is just a ruse.

 
At 2:18 PM , Blogger Phiala said...

That's a great photo, Q!

Is sad: I'm not even motivated to blog, or think up witty comments for other's blogs. :-P

 
At 3:03 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

hehehe.

 
At 3:07 PM , Blogger Dread Val said...

News flash: Dreads are *really* hard to cut out without cutting off all the hair they're attached to. :P

I'm going to see Hair Police tomorrow afternoon and am trying to get my dreads out, rather than endure the lecture I will surely get about their sorry state. This isn't going well on my own. I think I'm going to get streaks AND dreads this time… color's still undecided, though.

I know. You all can rest easy now, knowing the state of my hair.

 
At 3:08 PM , Blogger Ticia said...

I've got to stop clicking fiendish links when I drinking water! Good one Sally!

And, Arwenn, the dogs are beautiful!

Can't you just see Mim and Venus saying "What USB connection? We don't see any connection."?

I'm telling you, the bees and bengals are up to no good. You'll remember I predicted this when the world comes to an end!

 
At 3:13 PM , Blogger Arwenn said...

I've learned to stop sipping anything if I'm going to follow a Sally link :)

 
At 3:15 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

oops, sorry ladies!

 
At 3:35 PM , Blogger Ben P. said...

Um ... Venus and Mim are both females, correct?

~Emily

 
At 3:48 PM , Blogger Beez said...

Dear Arwen-

I saw the dogs (wonderful) and then I kept reading.

I love your mom. I can see where you came from.

 
At 3:55 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

I'm not coming up with anything clever for that shot but the question about them both being female gets all sorts of Prop 8-slippery-slope argument comments going in my head ;-)

I spent the morning first taking a Prius-full of old clothes, shoes, etc to goodwill...yay! And then stocking stuffer shopping. I love shopping for little goodies. I found great stuff both for hubby and ben....and a pair of polka dot tights and skull socks for moi! OH, and the Vertigo Tarot set--oops.

It's impossible to xmas shop without coming home with something for yourself right?!

 
At 4:01 PM , Blogger Ben P. said...

Oh Fods, that seems like a vulgar question now I come to think of it. So sorry. Just wondering. I didn't mean to be rude ...

~Emily

 
At 4:08 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Not only is it impossible Chantrelle, it should also be 'illegal'.

I love buying the little bits and pieces too.

 
At 4:12 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

They are both female, and spayed, Emily...

I am in the mist of trouble right now, a very tired Boss has just been bumped from a very full plane....An no one is happy, particularly me...

 
At 4:14 PM , Blogger Phiala said...

Oh dear, Lorraine! I'm sure your Fabulous talents will get Boss where he needs to go.

 
At 4:15 PM , Blogger Ben P. said...

Sorry -- that was a very odd question. If I offended anyone I would like to know ...

What a shame about the flight. I hope things work out for the both of you.

~Emily

 
At 4:16 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Oh dear - sending calming thoughts to both you and Boss. Not a fun situation for either of you.

 
At 4:20 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

I don't think anyone was offended Emily!

 
At 4:20 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

OH man, no fun being bumped -- especially from a flight. Relaxing, comfy thoughts to boss for his wait :(

 
At 4:25 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Oh, I concur - i don't think anyone was offended.

Hey quiche, what cheek of the airline...don't they know who Boss is?

 
At 4:26 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

DOn't they know about Fiends, the bee-bengal alliance and all that goes along with the power of combining that plus the magnitude of boss's bossiness?!?! They must remedy this situation...or...or...well, they must!

 
At 4:30 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

My talents have been reduced to telling NW what I think of them in language better suited to a sailor..

I am beyond furious, and trust me when I tell you that is NOT something you want to encounter....

 
At 4:33 PM , Blogger Phiala said...

Oh wow... I think I'd pay money to hear that.

Directed at someone else, that is.

 
At 4:37 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Yes, I think I'd like to be safely behind a strengthened glass barrier and listening to the Mistress of No take it out on recalcitrance airlines.

 
At 4:44 PM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

Mim is the McGuyver of bengals!

 
At 4:51 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I do not think any of you would currently like to hear what I am saying....I know you love me well, and think I am a very nice person, but it is time you knew the truth about being a PA....

At 5:01 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Yeah, what Beez said. Kick heads.

 
At 5:05 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

can i call you to be my spokesperson next time someone bumps me? :D

 
At 5:24 PM , Blogger AletaMay said...

Maybe you could call comcast for me. I do not seem to have Internet service tonight.

Also we should all get in touch with our inner sailor from time to time.

 
At 5:24 PM , Blogger Phiala said...

Oh, Boss just blogged about it himself. Poor Boss! I've gotten stuck on NorthWest more than any other airline (actually more than all others combined), and I don't fly nearly as much as he does.

 
At 5:36 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

HA! Himself is on the plane and coming home...

Kicked me some BUTT I did, not sure what turned the trick, but whatever it worked.

I so rock some days...

 
At 5:37 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

You are FABULOUS!!! The title is quite earned.

 
At 5:38 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

I post things ben does in his voice to his blog (when i remember) and i just posted this story and had to share...Remember, this is a 4-yr-old talking to another 4-yr-old:
"I was just explaining to Jimmy that sometimes when people die they go into graveyards and become statues. And I saw a statue in Dublin one time that wasn't really a statue but a dead person. Can you imagine that? I saw a real dead person.
I wonder why mom doesn't remember any of this? Jimmy said he saw a statue in San Francisco so I told him it wasn't really a statue but a dead person. Then we decided to watch Winnie the Pooh. "

 
At 5:42 PM , Blogger na said...

Urgh. Nothing more frustrating than airline mess-ups. (Except, maybe, Amtrak mess-ups.)

 
At 5:45 PM , Blogger na said...

Oh kudos! The inner stevedore has it's uses, then.

Glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that story, Chantrelle.

 
At 5:48 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

I think we should all no by now that drinking and fiending don't mix! Fiends don't let fiends drink and read.

Ben has gotten a recent fixation on graveyards and i'm loving it! I'm sure Corpse Bride and my graveyard book shirt have helped that along.

 
At 6:20 PM , Blogger EmilyLady said...

AUGH, Ben P. is my brother. This is turning out to be an embarrassing night. Benjamin forgot to sign out ... SORRY!

At 6:40 PM , Blogger bulfinch's aglaia said...

Ms. Fablo, you rock most days. If not every single freakin' day. :-) Glad it got all straightened out.

Finals are over, but some other things happened that are filling the time, plus I feel purple without red is how I feel, so I'll just say goodnight and hope y'all fiends have a beautiful week.

 
At 6:55 PM , Blogger EmilyLady said...

At 7:11 PM , Blogger ariandalen said...

And Our Fearsome Leader proves why she is the Fabulous Queen Empress. It also explains why she has five Bengals in her Spooky Haus, and why the first, Venus, is sitting on the youngest, Mim. Venus has been learning from the Monstress. ;) I have no idea what Mim is doing with a USB cable, except that it was where she could reach it.

Lovely dogs your parents have, Arwenn!

 
At 7:16 PM , Blogger Jess said...

Ah, don't worry, Emily. No one else is. :)

What a night! Glad everything worked out for you and Boss, Quiche. As for sailors' talk: I'm rather enthusiastically sweary, me, and I say a little creative foul-mouthage can work wonders. Hubby's current favourite for shouting at idiot drivers, for instance (and I mean to type it uncensored, so brace yourselves), is You belming shitclown. It's immensely satisfying. Try it sometime. Cocking nadgers is a good, general-purpose expletive as well. I use that one a lot.

Ahem. Yes. Anyway.

Chantrelle, I love that story. Ben is brilliant. :D

As long as we are on a swearing binge, my all time favorite is

Emily - I enjoy seeing who you are each day. I'm glad you do sign your name, though.

I'm always just me.


Anyone who doesn't like that - well, we have Q to go to the mats for us. In our heads, at least.

Sally - did the delivery guy ever come?

 
At 8:11 PM , Blogger gaypet said...

I am glad to hear that you rocked yet again Ms Fab!

Good wishes for Dr visit, Nathalie!

I am very tired in body and spirit. Signing off now. Sleep well, and good morning to all.

 
At 8:19 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Very glad to hear you got boss on the plane.

Yes, delivery man came with my new laptop and now I am having incredible trouble getting online except on the desktop.
I keep following my instructions, but just can't get the wireless to talk to the internet.
About ready to scream I can tell you. you may not see that much of me until I have this all figured out.

 
At 8:21 PM , Blogger Fluffy said...

Venus was ackcherly saying, "Okay, bebeh, you wants to be big kitteh, you taek this and hack into Mom's... O hai, Mom! We r just playin, um, leapfrogz."

I must be tired. I'm wondering where one might find one of these inner sailors or inner stevedores. And, I'm ordering the blocks! Thank heavens I didn't look at the boots.

 
At 8:37 PM , Blogger na said...

Too true, Chantrelle. I am always paranoid about having any beverages in the office anyway, near the computer. With a Sally link, you know. Meanwhile other snort-inducing funnies and pictures are likely to pop up at any moment.

My little monsters aren't into graveyards at the mo, although they support my idea of a black-themed holiday tree next time around. :) (I know that was fiend-inspired, so whoever that was - thanks again!) What the monsters are all on about is dragons dragons dragons. I can happily dwell with dragons.

No worries Emily! No worries.

 
At 8:40 PM , Blogger Dragonsally said...

Fluffy, that was GOOD.

I feel very relieved gang, I managed to fix my problem. Phew. Now I can get into the big task of transferring files and all that shit. *sigh*

 
At 8:52 PM , Blogger na said...

Fluffy, that's perfect! I snorted again. My guy probably thinks I'm getting a cold.

And yay! for you Sally.

 
At 8:55 PM , Blogger na said...

Hmm. Sally - you know I meant the part about problem solved, not the pile o' shite that awaits.

Has anyone here read any of Holly Lisle's books? I'm reading "Talyn", I'm about 20 pages in, but not sure about continuing, although I know some books you just need to give it a bit.

Picture is adorable. Venus looks like "Mooom..she keeps trying to plug me in, so I made her stop!"

And the airlines were bested, by the mighty power of Quiche.:) Poor tired Boss.

At 2:27 AM , Blogger Lexocat said...

I'm sort of with Ticia on this one. It's a plot and the pose is a ruse.

Moreover, I'm convinced Venus and Mim are linking themselves into one big UberBengal. Or trying to. That lack-of-thumb thing interferes with lots of stuff.

Of course, I also think Venus looks like she's about to blow a mighty raspberry.

Good work with the airline, Q!

Now I must sleep. 'Night Fiends.

Hey, I do have something to say on this one!

I had a similar problem with Delta the second to last time I was in New York. I ended up buying a ticket with an entirely different airline on the next available flight home that wasn't Delta. Characteristically, I shot myself in the foot over principle, as the next available flight not on Delta wasn't until the next morning. First and (I hope) only time I've spent the night in a post-9/11 airport. Worst night ever.

Glad you set things right, Lorraine!

 
At 8:30 AM , Blogger vampi said...

when i was coming out to la for my job interview, i was booked on delta for a flight that left at 7am eastern time. of course i woke up at 3:30ish to get ready and went to print my boarding pass and noticed that my seat was in row 2. funny that i barely thought to myself at 3am in the morning. my company is too cheap to book me in first class. so i keep lookign and sure enough row 2 is first class. i'm shocked, i know they want to hire me, but first class? and after i shower and get dressed and look at what printed, slightly less groggy, i notice the flight time is now 8pm. they just rescheduled me with out notifying me. lovely. i missed going to the gay pride parade with some friends and getting a chance to see la before my interview.
not that any other airline is any better, honestly they all suck now. i've had decent flights with jet blue and airtran, but the "major" airlines are all suck.

and about the picture... clearly mimm is trying to connect skynet and venus was sent back in time to stop her.

Eska vou vou Maure!

My most unpleasant flying experiences have been on PanAm and America West. I believe both are out of business now, at least.

 
At 9:20 AM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

America West is the worst I've ever dealt with. They're customer service line was longer than their check-in line and everyone in it was pissed. They've since merged or were bought by US Airways. Good riddance

 
At 9:29 AM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Hi, Maure! The straitjackets can be found underneath the Bengals, though they aren't, strictly speaking, required. Of course, every Fiend needs a cat to sit between face and keyboard; doesn't have to be a Bengal.

::sigh:: At some point I need to go get stocking stuffers for 14 first graders. Then I have to wrap them.

 
At 10:48 AM , Blogger na said...

I second that "good riddance". I had several occasions to wonder what America West managers were like, assuming they would in part have been responsible for employee attitude toward customers. Meh.

 
At 11:31 AM , Blogger AletaMay said...

Nat-Law. Feel better soon please.

Lorraine -- yicks. Last word was Boss sitting in plane not going anywhere. That really is among the worst situations to be in. Makes people crazy. Hope it all worked out.

My internet at home is broken. My iPhone gets me on line but has it limits, or rather I have my limits. I really do not like to type anything long on my iPhone. It is amazing how much I do that requires an internet connection. Modern life. Wow.

Snow. We got some. Pretty and horrid all wrapped up in one sparkly white package.

At 11:54 AM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Here are two better sets of instructions: WikiHow and Family Fun. I also saw a page where the puffed rice treat was coated with a thin layer of white "chocolate" to make it look more like sushi rice. The author said that the white "chocolate" cut the sweetness of the puffed rice treat.

Yes, it got worse for him, poor man, in that there was a heck of a snowstorm, and the highways were getting closed. He called but I was dead asleep, rats....I think I would have told him to get a hotel.

Did he get home? Or did he end up sleeping upright on the plane?

 
At 12:31 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

Clearly Venus is trying out the massage technique known as Ashiatsu (where you walk on peoples' backs) and Mim, not quite up on the latest massage techniques is trying to McGyver (Dan got it right) the USB cord into a stun device since USB cords carry an electrical charge and she is desperately hoping it is plugged in...

that or Venus is stopping Mim from uploading embarrassing photos of her onto the net.

Na, thanks for the fiendly note. I'm doing okay... but I have just been way too overloaded to stop in here and catch up on the comments... which is a weird thing because usually this is my second home.

 
At 12:47 PM , Blogger Lexocat said...

On the topic of airline customer (dis)service, my worst experience was on Delta. On a trip to NY. Everyone was awful from the gate agent to the flight crew and beyond. Service with a sneer, baby!

And, yes, they lost my luggage, too.

At 3:20 PM , Blogger Fluffy said...

One of my most memorable (bad) flights was 1987 from NYC to Dallas on American. Friday evening, jumbo jet. The crew was trying without much success to get everyone in their seats to see how many standbys could get on, and were so frazzled by the time we took off that they just tossed the bags of nuts at each person down the rows (biff, biff, biff.) It was like softball practice but with a lot of cranky businesspeople all crammed together.

On the other hand, best flights: American business class to Hawaii and Air New Zealand. British Airways was good, too.

 
At 3:26 PM , Anonymous jacquib said...

It's truly awful sitting in transit lounges and on planes not going anywhere, but unfortunately with air travel so much depends on something beyond the airline's control. Such as air traffic control, airport services which include catering and cleaning and I know at some airports the check-in staff work for the airport, not the airline.
I used to work for an airline and when things go wrong, it's a nightmare for ground staff. Just about every passenger suddenly has a loved one who's dying, a meeting on which the future of the whole free world hangs in the balance, they threaten to take you hostage, try and hit you and you can bend over backwards trying to accommodate everyone, but they still end up yelling at you. And most of the time you do this with absolutely no idea of what is going on.

Then there are sometimes the passengers who do have a genuine emergency and sit there until last and don't say anything because they didn't want to bother you.

The very least the staff could do would be to tell you where to go, with a smile.

Having said that Delta/Northwest should still be whipped for making the boss suffer.

Ariandalen, do your kids give presents to their friends, or is it just that you give presents to all the kids in their grade?

We only give gifts to teachers, to whom I'm incredibly grateful for the hard work they put in through the year. So to all teachers reading Thank You for all your effort through the year and you may not think so, but people do notice.

I do feel for the ground staff of airlines. It has to be worse than working retail, in terms of the abuse one gets from anyone and everyone.

But there is no excuse I can imagine for, say, attendants who, when I told them an elderly couple and a young woman traveling alone with children were struggling in the rear of a plane in which the lights and air had gone out during deplaning on a late, hot Phoenix night, replied with "Yeah, well, that happens" and went back to gossiping. (That was the last time I flew America West.) (And fortunately plenty of fellow passengers helped, much as we could.) I mean, aren't attendants there at least in part for safety?!?

You're right Na. I used to cringe at the things some of my colleagues would say to passengers. Some cabin crew could be obnoxious as well. Just like everywhere really, there's good and bad.

Mostly I've found them to be good. Not that I do much traveling anymore.

 
At 4:50 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Adriandalen scares me.....

Mim is a Fiend from hell, tho Dan is right about the Macguyver...It is steak night here in the House of Leopards, and I swear you would think she had not been fed in weeks!

They ALWAYS have a dish of food, but she played Starving Fiend to the HILT, growing and hissing, carrying her bits of steak from end to end of the room, so Venus, who was not the slightest bit intersted, having her own steak watched...

Hopefully the shy Leopards will be interested, still haven't seen any of them...

Jacquib - true enough. Your basic cross-section of humanity, anywhere you look, in any gathering, mostly pleasant with a dash of the not-so-much. I had a hard enough time working in bookstores - I could never make it as a waitress or airline employee. Unless I had to. Really, really had to.

Yay for steak night! Were your first fosters so shy at first, FabLo?
