So bored.

On Saturday the heat index was 107. And we wear fur coats. And so we could not go outside and have our mental and physical stimulations and thus we have been a bit, how to phrase this, annoying as a Sarah Palin speech performed by the Black Eyed Peas backed by vuvuzelas. That bad. Our ape said we had CABIN FEVER. So we looked up what that meant. The best we could come up with was:

Oh my. So we have had to come up with our own indoor entertainments OTHER than the Jersey Shore marathon or barking at cats (both of which we have engaged in this weekend). Here are some of the things we do for mental/physical stimulations:

1. Math problems: If you have three dogs, how many different configurations of two can you make with these three doggies on the couch.



Three. (Ouch! My eye!)

That problem was too easy. Here's another: If a sheppy and a pit boo run as fast as they can, with a max speed of 189 mph for the sheppy and .189 mph for the boo, what will the force be on impact between their skulls. Answer: Ouch.

2. Joke telling!

Ethel is not amused by my sexist jokes.

Otis does not find my jokes very funny.

But clearly he finds his OWN jokes HILARIOUS.

3. Monkey Madness

4. Funny Face competition (Ethel opted out as she says she NEVER looks funny):

Uh, I think you can see who won:

This must be why they call it the Dog Days of Summer.

Those are some great ideas! I think your mom should sew you some Saturday Night Fever costumes and you could re-enact the movie in your living room! Cool idea, huh?

Ethel, darling, even though you are so in love with Your look-a-like Oscar, I have so missed your long legs and sharp teeth. You still look incredibly beautiful.

I'm not meant to post anything intelligent am I? Just to say how gorgeous you are.

Those are very much GREAT ways to combat that stupid cabin fever. Luckily, I have it on good authoritys that cabin fever isn't terminal.

Great ideas guys! I have 5 dogs in my house and we live in Florida, so we are MELTING here too! We just have to make sure that Brusky, my Boxer big brother doesn't want to play "eat the little guys"!

Your brains are misfiring with too many simple minded amusements. I hope that there is outside action soon or Otis will become as simple as a sheppy and the sheppy bulbs will dim to the point of possibly downing in the water bowl simple. Yuh.

WE can always count on your ape for a musical flashback! Sorry it was too hot to be peppy but looks like you got some quality time with the monkey stick at least!
