Actors and Angles

As any actor worth his/her salt knows, a camera angle has a great impact on your image. Recently I gasped when I was shown several images taken of me at the recent Muppet movie event. 

Some camera angles make my nose look larger than normal!

The bottom photo is my fav because I'm with Mooki, and when I'm with Mooki, my inner beauty radiates.

What do you think? Which is your favorite photo of me?

Don't worry---I won't let your answers Go To My Nose!!!!

Pssst....check out the photo on my Facebook page!

Cat Management

We are managed by one cat who runs our home and attempts to order our life in the way that best suits her. She is a ruffian-at-large, and all of us--two muppets, four humans, one dog, and too many guppies and birds to count are under her paw.

She is a senior cat as I've mentioned in other posts, and even before we were created, she was ruling. 

Recently my parents bought her a beautiful, cushy cat bed which they tried to entice her to lie in by putting fresh catnip and her favorite treats inside. This didn't work at all, and she ordered my parents to give it to Mooki and me.

So now we have a cat hand-me-down. She was wise to suggest this cat bed for us as it fits us perfectly and gives us our very own place to relax after a hard day of twittering, blogging, facebooking, and youtubing. Lately we've been doing more relaxing than any of the above as we've grown very fond of this new bed.

All of this goes to show that our cat is extremely wise since Mooki and I really needed some down-time. 

There was a huge gathering of Muppets recently for the BIG film. See our Facebook page in this regard, and as the black sheep of the muppet world, we were a bit drained & overwhelmed by the giant egos if you know what I mean.

In the meantime, we're sleeping it off.

Yesterday on 11/11/11 the rumor was that this day was the very best day to make a wish. 

So Mooki & I played along, and he told me his secret wish--a really sweet wish and one I was so happy to hear as you can see by the reaction on my face.

Because it was a secret, I can't share it with you. Once his secret wish finally comes true, then I'll blab all about it.

Secrets can only be shared with trusted people.

If you read or hear the latest news, you know that lots of people's deepest, darkest secrets are being brought to light. Some of these secrets are not so flattering, and many of these secrets are downright scary, sad, flabbergasting and even horrific.

Astrologers tell us the reason so many secrets are being revealed is because of the long term dynamic between the planets Uranus and Pluto. These two planets are in what is called in astrological terms a 'square', and this square configuration will continue for many years. 

One way to explain this dynamic is Pluto is like the secret place, the hidden place where the secret is hidden. Uranus is like the lantern bringing light into the hidden place and exposing the secrets that have been hidden. 

Have you been keeping secrets?

Are you keeping a secret out of fear of getting in trouble or upsetting someone or breaking the secrecy code? 

Or are you keeping a secret like I'm keeping Mooki's secret out of respect?

Give me some feedback in the comments.

Why I'm Happy To Be A Muppet

As I look at the Human World from my perspective, I see and read lots of crazy stuff. The news is most bizarre.

Today I read a story that made me happy to be a muppet.

This is a story about carbon monoxide---a story with a twist. CO is a poison to humans, but the latest 'finding' "indicates that CO, in small doses, is a boon to the well being of urbanites, better equipping them to deal with environmental stress." Here's the link.

How strange is this?!

As for me, I'm keeping my frequencies high so that I won't experience stress of any kind. Laughing is the number one tool in
my medicine bag.

I suggest you add some laughter to your day.

Have a good belly laugh in Nature. Get a muppet perspective.

I'll see you there!

Cats Rule

The news is often shocking. I suppose that sensational, disturbing, dramatic news is more compelling. Positive, inspirational news isn't what sells. 

But CUTE never seems to go out of style.

Our innocence gets lost earlier and earlier and earlier. Like today, my innocence was shattered when I read a famous YouTube star says that the internet is powered by cats. Here's the link.

This news gave me pause. So if cats are the most powerful beings on YouTube, why haven't I added my cat to my videos? I added my dog once. I've been missing out...barking up the wrong tree...blowing it big time by not featuring my very own super disagreeable adorable kitty. Well, she's not exactly a kitty anymore....more like a senior citizen who loves room service.

The least I could do before making another poorly made video is to feature a cat on this blog. Maybe I'll find one more reader--or lots of readers from the cat lover world?!

Be Real

I just finished my latest You Tube video about Fake People.

Fake people & fake situations consume the news...and sometimes it's challenging to discern what is truth. Reality tv doesn't make it any easier.

It's a strange world humans live in, dontcha think? This muppet likes to spoof this human world.

Some people really excel at exaggeration & lies.

I don't allow comments on my YouTube page, but you can comment here if you'd like to say something about this subject. Here's the link to my latest video on this subject.

Muppet Money

Oh for crying out loud, let's admit it: money is what makes the world go round...or so it seems. I betcha many humans would rather have money than love these days. 

Money is a very strange thing for it provokes people to do things they wouldn't normally do. Money is the way many humans keep count.They think the more they've got, the more they're worth. Strange that!

Money fluctuates in value. It is notoriously unstable. And yet it serves a trade function. So it's useful.

Money appears to be necessary for human living although there are some humans who manage to live without it---they are considered weird or poor.

It's sung that "money can't buy you love".  

But money certainly seems to buy you friends, press, and attention. Money buys you advertising, time, things, and influence.

Humans do dastardly deeds for money. Down through the ages, more crimes have been committed for money than for love.

Despite money's bad track record, humans still love it.

It's time for a change to Muppet Money methinks.

The only way to acquire Muppet Money is by doing good deeds and performing services which assist others.

What do you think? Are you ready for Muppet Money?

I know I am.  I'm ready for everyone to have their fair share of the Earth's bounty without taking advantage of anyone or anything. It'd be so much better to have greed, money lust & hoarding banished forever. 

If you're in favor of Muppet Money, leave me a comment.

Mooki & I headed out for our Halloween party all dressed up in our Halloween outfits. However, things didn't play-out as planned, and our eggspectations/expectations weren't met. We never made it to the party because of a series of events.

Sometimes things don't go as planned. Some call this "Murphy's Law." If there is a 'course correction', the best way to deal with these unforseen course corrections is to accept the changes with grace and laughter. 

Mooki & traded corny Halloween jokes in the car. Here's a sample of some of them:

Q: What do you call a witch that lives at the beach?
A: A sand-witch!

Q: What's a monster's favorite bean?
A: A human bean. 

Q: What kind of makeup do ghosts wear?
A: Mas-scare-a

All in all, we scared up some fun with one another even though we were stuck in the car most of the night. 

And then I read about Kim Kardashian's divorce announcement. Now some people are saying that she contrived the whole bogus wedding. But I know for a fact that Stuff Happens! Not even humans have their plans work out the way they hoped.

So I say cut the lady some slack. 

When was the last time your expectations weren't met?

How did you handle the situation?

P.S. Please Like Me on Facebook. I'd really appreciate it. Maybe you can make ONE of my plans work. (Hint. Hint)

For all you little kids and big kids out there stuck indoors and not able to trick 'n treat this year because of the unseasonal snow, we salute you and hope you made some corny jokes of your own!
