Shepherd's pie and cactii

You see, the title of this post rhymes! I am in a rather good mood today; as I was wondering how long more I was destined to continue biding my time under the bed, my owner took me out for a long-awaited cooking session! This this it was shepherd's pie. I guess images speak louder than words:

Boiling potatoes

Bratwursts were an extra.

Filling the pie

Eating the pie!

My owner, as usual, was trying to be funny and wrote '133t' and 'woot' on her pies, with her fork. There is still quite a lot of leftover ingredients. The cheese was left out, unfortunately. Apparently she is going to cook again--I can't wait!

In other news, I am sad to report that Bob the cactus has gone to wherever good cactii go to when they breathe their last. My owner watered him too much. She says she does not want to keep any more plants. I am rather glad I am inorganic sometimes. Although I wonder what it is like to be squishy.

Making New Friends

My owner has brought home two new friends. They are two cacti who are residing in a pot which used to house another plant. I didn't talk to that plant much as it was too busy putting out leaves. I am not really sure what happened to it, too. Anyway, these two new cacti are called Arthur and Bob, and they are really fun to talk to! At first they seemed all prickly and stiff, but inside they are just softies. They're really nice. I hear they are starting a webcomic soon! I do wonder what it will be about...
