A Pancake, PC & Pig Post

I had some really nice pancakes today. All you need to do to make them is to make normal pancakes then spread peanut butter on them. Yummy! Remember, though, that not everyone likes peanut butter pancakes. Not everyone likes pancakes. I do though! Also, as a treat, Nutella pancakes are good, but we don't have any Nutella. If you're looking for something different on pancakes, maybe try cheese and Vegemite. I haven't tried them though, or, at least, I don't remember what they taste like if I have.

On your computer, if you've got this maze screensaver, set it to "All Wood" and if you like, set it to have a map. Then, have a look and see what happens. On mine there is wood everywhere. It looks like you are trapped in every direction. There are obstacles around, of course, and those red arrow things that make you go upside down. They also mark out some places and it's easier to navigate around that way. Of course, you don't control the computer. If you can't find the map, it's "Maze Overlay" in "Settings". I'm using a Windows 98 laptop for this though.

Yep, relaxing in the DK lounge; snuggling the best pig in the whole wide world, Karen.

Now to move on to the screensaver, "3D Text", if you've got it. I like to have it at large, fast, make it wobble about - that's the spin style and entering random text like "jdsaklhftjnvjkdapjuei". On this slow computer with a tiny memory, it goes all slow. Now to make it even more funny. Choose a good texture and then have a look. Mine's even got "N" in hieroglyphs - water.

To explain the guinea pig grass photo, Karen has been in her tray eating loads of grass. When I held her, she was all warm.

A Short Picture Blog Post

Last night the guinea pigs were doing some serious chillaxin' (chilling + relaxing). Well, actually, only Karen, Justine and Tamburlaine were chillaxin'. I was snuggling in the DK lounge with Karen and Justine. They were in a little corner and if you follow on the little road from there, you get to the heater. This is what it looks like:

I was also playing on my laptop. I was probably eating one of my vegie boxes.

A Two Subject Blog

Using the Internet has lots of good things and a few bad things. For example, sometimes you load a page then when you're finished with it, you click the 'back' button, but it doesn't go back. Then you click the little button (next to the back button) and there's just a million pages there! I think this occurs in all browsers, it certainly occurs in Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Just before I was making this blog post, I was relaxing in my DK-lounge. The guinea pigs were ripping the newspaper out of their tray. The guinea pigs were supposed to hide under that towel in front of the tray, but instead, they kicked it off and hid under their cushion!

I went to a friend's birthday party today. It was great! It was a pizza popcorn party. We stayed up till really late. That was mainly because we watched a movie. It was Charlotte's Web 2.

Sunflowers, Hair & Tamburlaines

I just like reading. I do! I just read things automatically if there's something I can read. I also do a few other things automatically: twisting my hair; sucking my hair and making the tips of my hair go along my cheek. As you can see, I do a lot of things automatically with my hair. Also another thing I do automatically with my hair is make big knots. It's hard to get the big knots out.

I'm growing a sunflower. It's growing pretty fast, even at this winter time. I put it on the window ledge. It's a good spot for ripening tomatoes as well, but our tomatoes are gone for the year. We did get an extra boost through autumn though.

Tamburlaine is hiding under the first layer of his three layer hiding place. It's made out of a towel and he's probably got dry poo on his feet, because he walks in his poo. He also sticks his nose in his baby powder milk and that makes him sneeze when he's having milk. It's funny.

A Various Blog Post

Today, I woke up to find I had slept through homeschool group. This was a surprise and I like homeschool group, so it was also a bad surprise - kind of a bad surprise and kind of a good surprise. It was a good surprise, because I get another day off. That is the short story of today.

Guinea pigs are cute. Well, they are, aren't they? You'll know if you have one. We have four, as I told you in my last blog post. Two of them are relaxing near the heater, Karen and Tamburlaine.

Theodore (the poo poo one) is hiding either in his ice cream tub pigloo on the second floor of his hutch or in the hay on the first floor. If I came near and lifted up the top one and he was in there, he would probably frantically scrabble away.

Justine, on the other hand, is hiding in her pigloo, or the hay under the wood that Mama (tinsenpup) put there.

My Very First Blog Post

I'm DK (The Dragonkeeper). I am the daughter of tinsenpup and this is my blog. Here is a short story that happened today:

We have four guinea pigs - one named Karen, one named Justine, a little one that is two and a half weeks old and of course Karen, the silky brown one, may well be sister to Justine. Justine is the mother to our little one, except she rejected it and we had to hand raise it ourselves. Tinsenpup also has a blog named Raising the Palm Pig (or something like that) and of course, our male, also the father of our little one. He poos anywhere, anytime! I almost forgot to tell you the name! His name is Theodore and our little one's name is Tamburlaine and, of course, my 21 dragons, for this blog is not only about guinea pigs. Over time, I will tell you about my friends. There's just too much about my friends and me to tell you in one blog!

Now is the short story:

Tamburlaine is in his crate with a blanket over it so that he doesn't jump out (he's always jumping out). I took him out. I probably snuggled him a bit, but I can't remember. He may have escaped to Mama or I may have put him down next to his crate, but he went between the heater and his crate. I tried to grab him, but burnt myself!

That is all. I hope you like my first blog and that's the end.
