No More Laziness Because Our Family Is Growing!

We are back from not doing anything! We spent so much time relaxing, not worrying about responsibility, ignoring the blog. Ya know, the usual. Of course, we have kept up to date with our Gossamer 365 project. (The whole taking a picture everyday for a year of either Gossamer or GJ). I guess whoever reads this is wondering about the mysterious letter we got and if we got it deciphered. Yes we did, and we have a HUGE apology to send out to Francis… the Green Monster.

It turns out he wasn’t stalking Gossamer! (Well… he was but not to hurt him). Francis was just trying to get his autograph!! This is the translation of Francis’ letter:

Gossamer,

I apologize if I have frightened you over the the past few months. As you can see, I have no arms so it is hard for me to write or communicate with sign language. I thought being a fellow monster, you would understand the RAWR language. When we first meet, you were suppose to go to the Grand Canyon. When I went to ask for your autograph, I tripped, knocking you over. I cannot apologize enough for my actions. When the driver arrived, he assumed I was the traveling monster and took me along. He did not understand me since humans rarely speak RAWR. While I feel horrible about what has occurred, it would be a lie to say I did not enjoy my time. I meet a nice couple of humans and a traveling kitty. They helped me take pictures and helped me get back home. I hope in time you can come to forgive me and even someday call me friend.

-F

What a well versed little fellow! After much talking, Gossamer, GJ, and I have decided to adopt the little green monster. He only speaks RAWR but our friend from North Carolina has sent us a RAWR to human translation book to help us out.

GJ seems to adore his new brother… Gossamer is still a little hesitant. Anyways, for our 2 year anniversary we invited Francis to join us. He was just so cute and looked happy to be part of our weird, little family. He’s shy, but seems to love cupcakes.

NOM NOM NOM

He even showed us his Grand Canyon pictures! Here’s a few:

All the pictures are amazing. (Click Here For the Rest) We’re so happy that Francis turned out to be a travel enthusiast and cupcake lover instead of a psychotic killer…

Until our next adventure, Toddles!!

GJ and Beedle The Bard

Me pulling GJ away.

We just got our Collector’s Edition of The Tales of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling! We are really excited and can’t wait to read it.

Now normally, we wouldn’t spend $100 on a book, but we have been saving every dime since August! We decided to get this book based on three reasons:

1. We love the world J.K. Rowling created! She’s a wonderful writer and the Harry Potter books have been a good part of our lives.
2. The money goes to charity! We get something cool and we get to donate. Two birds with one stone.
3. We haven’t mentioned this before, but we collect fantasy, sci-fi, and other types of books. Now, we are not the type of collectors who get something just because it’s rare. This book may be expensive, but it’s still a book. They are meant to be read and cherished, not just stored away.

…But when GJ got too close to the book, I did yank him away. I spent $100 on that book and who knows what he’s been crawling in all day!
