Wonderful bloggie friends!

I can't wait for December, can you? It means, Christmas, holidays, pressies and fun work parties (LOL!) and more presents!! How exciting! I'm excited, I hope you all are too. And if you celebrate something else not Christmas then I hope you all have a fabulous celebration too! And please may I join? Yay!

See y'all in December!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kitty, my Christmas wish is that we see more of you and Charlie on your blog!

Mr Puddy said...

" a cattuccino with extra sprinkle of nip " Sound so good to Me, Charlie : )
I hope your mom make you one !
and Extra for me, Please...tee...heh..heh

Brian said...

Hey Charlie, I'll join you...make mine a double please!

Helena said...

I'd love to attempt the Cool as a Cucumber poem -- maybe I'll have time to get something in under the deadline.
You've got so much more Christmas spirit than I have! I should try to be more festive this year and drop my Bah Humbug snarliness that's getting a little too ingrained for me.

It sounds like you are on a writing streak, Jen! Good for you!

I am looking forward to Christmas and seeing my grandsons again. It will be fun!

Brigid said...

Great entry, I love your piece.
Yes, bring on the Christmas holidays, we all need a break.

Patsy said...

Love your poem, Kitty. Good luck with the competition.

You're right about the cliche thing - it does look like fun.

Al said...

Roll on the holidays!

Theresa Milstein said...

There is NO WAY I can enter the feminist fiction contest after reading your fabulous entry. I mean, really, showing up the rest of us like that!

Glass ceiling beware. I'm going to have that in the back of my head all day.

I'm looking forward to the next holiday break. You'd think I'd be satisfied with my four-day Thanksgiving weekend, but I'm already dreaming of more time off.

Hi, Charlie!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Love Charlie. He has such great taste!

Looking forward to December too.

Dave King said...

I don't think I qualify as a paid-up feminist, but I liked this one.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope you enter the competition and WIN. Tell Charlie to remember to get your Christmas present.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Stephen Tremp said...

Hotta have that extra nip of nip. I used to call that Happy Hippy coffe backin the day.

KarenMcG said...

Charlie, it sounds like Old Kitty might be a little bit excited about December coming.

And we like that you like catticino and nip sprinkles. Numm, num.

Jennifer Shirk said...

I know! I can't believe December is almost here! I'm excited too!

Marg said...

I can't turn anything into a poem. I am just not a poet. But we hope you do. Bet you can do a good one.
Hi there Charlie. Some extra nip coming right up. Take care and have a great week.

LTM said...

fun stuff! Ooo, I'd love a real cappuccino... That Charlie. Scratches to him and hope you have a lovely December. good luck w/the flash fiction! :o) <3

SASS....Sammy Andy Shelly Sierra said...

Happy Monday, sweeties.....we'd love to join Charlie for a cattuccino!!!!!!!

Bossy Betty said...

Charlie! Come here and give your Aunt Betty a kiss! I have missed you!

Lydia Kang said...

Cattucino! I love it!

Felted House said...

Thanks for your welcome back message on my post - I do hope I'll be able to visit a little more often now, it's good to catch up on lovely Charlie and his fantastic tail! I'm so sorry to hear you lost so much work recently, I so often forget to back up everything.
Yes I think I'm looking forward to December now - one more frantic week and then things will calm down ever so slightly and I can think about Christmas and get some lovely twinkly lights up! xx

Deniz Bevan said...

I am so ready for December - can't wait to set the NaNo novel aside and finalise edits on my other story.
Bet my cats would love some nip right about now...

Rene said...

Charlie, a catticino, LOL!

the writing pad said...

Love your haiku (never sure if I get that word right!) Also love Charlie's cattucino (groan!) Mind you, our dogs, Tommy & Leyla like a mug of Boneville at bedtime! (Showing my age there, I fear :-))
All best
Karla

Words A Day said...

I love that! Glass ceiling beware:) And thanks for the link, I think I'll join you:)

Cute Kitty. Mine is similar...white with grey markings, though with a black nose.

William Kendall said...

Charlie seems rather studious today...

ABBY said...

Lynda R Young said...

Charlie really is the cutest (don't tell my cat I said that).

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Good luck on your entry! Cool poem. :D

Does Charlie like to sneak drinks out of your cup? Peaches keeps thinking about it.

Have a wonderful week!

Au and Target said...

We'll be having a roast something. Big enough for all the cats!

faith hope love ღ said...

nice post! thanks for sharing... God bless you...

Tracy Jo said...

I love December too! We got our tree up and it makes me smile every morning. Cheers to all the festivities and fun!

Angie Paxton said...

I feel the exact same way about the coming month. I love the lead up to Christmas. I started listening to Christmas songs on Thanksgiving Day. Hope Charlie enjoyed his cattucino!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

"cattucino" I love it!!!

I have to say it seems like yesterday I was sitting here wishing everyone a Happy New Year...where has the year gone???????

(((((hugs)))) to you and Charlie! Enjoy the season!

Claudia Del Balso said...

Can't wait for Christmas to arrive! I need a vacation :)
Thank you for sharing these interesting links. Charlie had better not have too much cattuccino or he'll be up all night ;)

Roy said...

Yes. More posts from you and Charlie. In years past Christmas has NOT been a good time for me, well the whole fall and winter bit hasn't. This year it seems to be brightening up.

Hope I can keep up with all of you this season.

All I want for Christmas is for all my Friends and their little one to have the best of the season and be very happy!

That is enough for this old Bird.

Susan Fields said...

I'm glad you're more in the Christmas spirit than I am! I'll get there, though - once we get the tree up I'm sure I'll be singing Christmas carols all over the place. :)

Madeleine said...

Enjoyed the haiku. Charlie is so cute. Bless you for giving my blogfest a shout out.
Will chekc out the flash competition too.

Soggibottom said...

I like plenty of nip too Charlie, good luck Mum :-) X X X

cleemckenzie said...

I'll take some of that cattuccino with an extra sprinkle of nip as long as it's nonfat and low in calories. Gotta get ready for those holiday meals.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I love December (unless the weather isn't good). :D

Hope Charlie enjoys his cattuccino.

The Golden Eagle said...

Love the haiku. :)

I'm excited for December, too!

And I'm also participating in Madeleine's blogfest; looking forward to reading your entry!

LynNerdKelley said...

Wow, I can hardly believe that December is almost here! Where in the world did 2011 go? Yes, I'm ready for some fun time. Wish we lived closer. I'd love to party with you and Charlie!

Ann said...

I am sooo looking forward to December and the holidays too! Love this time of the year. Work parties don't seem to happen here...not sure if that is a good or bad thing...the jury is still out on that one! LOL!

Will have to pop over and sample your blogfest entry!

Talli Roland said...

Old Kitty, if you're going to be in Canada in mid-December, please drop by! You can help us decorate the tree.

Love your entry!

Hart Johnson said...

Love your Haiku! Very well done! Will be interesting to see the cliche entries. Sometimes they really CAN be divine, used in surprising ways.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

December is a great month with all the fun and festivities. And a great time to try a cattuccino with extra nip--yea Charlie!
Hope December is everything that you hope for! : )

Ann Best said...

December arrives here in Virginia USA tomorrow morning. It's evening now. Jen's puttering around in her wheelchair. It's dark outside. I'm here also to thank you for that lovely review of my Ozark Memory story !!!

Mookychick. What a delicious title for a competition. And your poem is delicious too with all those alliterative Bs. Then those hissing S's. Then the sudden surprising twist, another B word --beware. If I were a judge, I'd be impressed/I AM impressed!!

Jen says you and Charlie have a great December!!!
Ann Best, Memoir Author

Jemi Fraser said...

I can't believe Dec is here tomorrow! I'm not ready for it to be Nov yet!!! I need more time :)

meowmeowmans said...

Oh Charlie, we'd join you for sure!

Dawn Simon said...

You have such wonderful energy! Have I already told you that? You really do. :)

Your entry is excellent, and I loved the cattuccino! Hee-hee! Charlie is adorable. Or since we're talking cliches, should I call him the cat's meow? ;)

Yes, December will be fun!

A Lady's Life said...

this is the most fun and wonderful time of the year!

Hilary said...

Charlie, enjoy.... it looks delish

Cheri said...

Glad you are doing well. Things should spice up this month for sure! Thank you for all your visits and purrs for Yoko - Mom has had her hands full trying to keep up with all of us!

Jamie Burch said...

Holiday hugs to you and Charlie! Good luck with your entry. Love it!

Hope you're having a lovely week. December is here! :)

I love December, too--but not the cold. That blogfest sounds fun;)!

Father Tom said...

Hey, Charlie, nice to make your acquaintance. First visit to your blog and my human just might go on some of the creative adventures you're suggesting!

Have a great weekend, my new furriend!

NOW, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Jilda and I watched the film Holiday with Kate Winslet. Part of it was filmed in Surrey England.
We love that movie. We'll be watching one of our Christmas movies every few days until then.

LynNerdKelley said...

Hello Old Kitty and Charlie - I hope you're enjoying tons of holiday parties and sharing lots of Christmas cheer!

Pk Hrezo said...

I can't wait to see Charlie in his Father Christmas hat. ;)

lupie said...

Gosh ...

First part of the post, I thought you were describing ME! heeheheheheeheh except for the glass ceiling part!!

I am sure Dec will be a fun time for everyone! Chinese will be celebrating Dongzhi Festival (Winter Solstice Festival) 2 or 3 days before Christmas.

You and Charlie are cordially invited to join us for our "glutinous rice balls' eating competition! :)

xxx to you both - always!!

Arlee Bird said...

I hear the sound of tinkling shards of glass on the floor.

Love the idea of the cliche blogfest. I'll keep that one in the back of my mind.
