Cool Box Meme!

T'Abby Normal tagged me for the Cool Box Meme:

Show us a photo of the front of your Cold Box and tell us about at least one thing on it and one thing you keep inside of it! Tag your friends and remember to stay COOL!

Here is my fridge-freezer and as you can see, it is pretty well loaded with magnets! The biscuits/cookies, potato, celery stick pen, chocolates and tomato slice I bought in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on a trip we took there one day when I was staying with Dad in 1995 I think it was. There should be a carrot pen too but that seems to have gone AWOL. The Mickey Mouse was a present from my friend Salad which she bought in Florida. The Wallace, Gromit and Shaun the Sheep were presents from my lovely Mum and the big soft Shaun the Sheep was a present from my friend Jeanette. The teapot was free with Sainsbury's Ceylon tea bags. The pigs are write-on-wipe-off piggies and were given to me by my boss years ago. The little black cat under the calendar was made by one of my cousin H's daughters when she was quite young. I forget who gave me the others I'm ashamed to say!

The calendar was made by my friend Phil. He started doing them last year for friends. I've blanked out his surname and phone numbers in case any spammers stumble across this blog!

Pinky gave me this one. Oh, you know me so well Pinky! You can see part of the potato underneath. It's very realistic. In fact, unnoticed by me, it fell into a box which was beside the fridge which Pinky took home because he wanted boxes to pack stuff in. When he looked in the box, he thought, "Why has Black Cat put a potato in this box?" and it was only when he saw the magnet on the back that he realised what must have happened and brought it back to me next time he came over!

Inside the fridge is cheese, olives, milk, butter and a few other bits and bobs.

I tag Empress Bee and Jan's Funny Farm and Kaze, Latte and Chase.

Coincidentally, a friend emailed me this the other day:

"Ewwwwww" was my first reaction, but then I noticed the picture was called "Magnet.jpg". In any case, the friend who sent it to me is a cat lover so I knew he wouldn't be having anything to do with getting laughs out of cruelty.

Update to Arte y Pico Award

While I was at Abby's blog I saw she had also been awarded the Arte y Pico award and there are some rules which I missed:

  1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogger community, regardless of language.
  2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
  3. Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
  4. Award-winners and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
  5. To show these rules.
By the way, I expect all of you who have Zone Alarm know by now that the latest Windows update conflicts with it. Zone Alarm have issued a critical update but if you can't get onto the innernets, you can't download it (or read this for that matter, lol!). This is what happened to me in the middle of my last post. I got round it by rolling back to the previous System Restore point and then when I heard the next day (from Pinky) about the cause of the problem, I downloaded the Zone Alarm update. Then I allowed Windows to do its update and (fingers crossed) so far so good.

Have a good Sunday and a great week efurrycat:) xxx

Good tip on ZA--that's what we use. Mom just uninstalled the latest Windows update because we couldn't even get ON the internets. So of course it's back to haranguing us to reinstall.

Anyway, I like your fridge! We can't have much on ours because of you-know-who. Oh well. Some day he'll stop being such a pest.

Mom's going to see Steely Dan. Don't know why Sandia took it off their site. Hope it's not suddenly cancelled, since she's quite psyched.

Those are some great stories! Of course I especially like hearing that someone thought Black Cat was responsible for the potato.

Hmm...we should have the no writing in the dust rule at our house too!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, we love the little kitty half closed in the fridge picture.

We really appreciate you tagging us, but hope you won't mind if we don't do it for another week or so. We've been tagged and done this meme before, but we have a surprise post coming up, so your tag is perfect timing!

And thanks for the note about the ZA update. We're going to get Jan to update it before she forgets.
