Going green

Off topic...

Check out this website, Recyclebank. The way it works is, you earn points for learning tips about going green, making green purchases, using fewer resources, etc. Then you can cash those points in for coupons, freebies, gift cards, and all kindsa cool stuff. Mom cashed in her points for a Martha Stewart "Living" subscription, and immediately began to feel her age.

We are really into recycling, buying things made from recycled materials, and all around being green. We encourage others to do the same. You can get biodegradable doggie-waste bags, post-consumer paper towels, printer paper, and even toothbrushes, and they all cost about the same as their non-green counterparts. As much as we love Kermit, it's actually very easy being green.

If you sign up for Recyclebank, please use this link, 'cause mom gets points for each referral.

Happy weekend!

7 things about me.

Wow! My first award! This was given to me by my new furend Dougall over at The Dougall Diaries.

I guess how this works is that I'll tell you 7 things about me, and then pass this along to other new furends I'd like to know more about. So here goes!

1. I am a bed hog. I love to sleep in the middle of the bed. When we go to bed, I curl up in a corner at the top of the bed. By the time mom wakes up in the morning, I've wiggled my way to the middle while she clings on to the side of the bed trying not to fall off. heh heh heh

2. I'm very talkative. When we wake up in the morning, I always greet mom with this sort of yawnhiiirooo sound (not an accurate onomatopoeia). Same thing when she gets home from work and takes too long doing whatever it is she does before taking me out.

3. I never learned how to do a proper Scottie stand, but we are practicing. I always want to stand up on the pads of my feet with my legs straight, through.

4. I think "sit" means mom is going to push my back end down.

5. I don't care much for chew toys or bones. I do love to chase the little red dot, though!

6. I am a huntress, through and through. Sometimes I get so riled up about catching something, that even my shadow gets me excited.

7. I love to play "tag" with mom. Sometimes she gets in the floor and mimics my playful bow, and we'll do this back and forth for a minute, then I'll run around the apartment, she'll do the playful bow/huff again and I'll come charging at her (sometimes I lick her face on my way by). It's my favorite game.

I'd like to pass this on to my new furends at Jazzi's WorldBouncing Bertie, and Molly the Wally.

Hope everyone's having a great week!
