Christmas is coming!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Everywhere I go!
With the wreath up upon the door
And the tree falling on the floor,
And it’s so hot!!

Furgive me if I got the tune wrong, but that’s a poetic version of my sentiments. We’ve got the Christmas decorations up everywhere and we got a new tree and kept the old one as well, so now we’ve got TWO trees! It’s fun to sit on the table underneath one of the trees and pawlay with the ornaments. Meowmy’s pawlanning Christmas purresents to get fur everyone and I even heard her mention getting some Fancy Feast fur us fur Christmas. :D We don’t get a lot of wet food.

On the down side of things, we had the first summer thunderstorm come through yesterday. I’m not usually scared of thunder, but this one was LOUD and SCARY!! Meowmy had to drag me out furom under the car; I was so scared I just sat stiffly in her arms as she carried me inside. I now officially do NOT like thunder!!

I’ve told you befur that Meowmy was working on a music video of me and my furiends. Well, she finished it, but she has NOT been able to get Catster to upload it propurrly. It says it’s loaded 100%, then it has that darned “an error occurred” message. Grrr! Meowmy’s decided she’ll try uploading the video to Photobucket then posting it on my page as a HTML code. That might work.

In the meantime, I have to endure endless Christmas CD’s and Meowmy’s singing. She says it’s not really that bad, but I beg to differ. That is why I spend so much time outside. Meowmy just does NOT understand why I don’t like her singing?? Often I can hear “Jingle Bells” blaring out of the CD pawlayer in the living room, “Felize Navidad” on the computer, and Meowmy singing “Adeste Fidelis” in the bedroom! :-0 But as well as singing songs, Meowmy also likes to re-write the. She’s adapted a lot of Christmas carols and silly songs ofur time. Here’s one she adapted furom White Christmas. It’s her Aussie version she calls “Hot Christmas”. Quite appropriately!

I’m dreaming of a hot Christmas
Just like the ones we always knew!
With the rain clouds dying
And us all frying.
With melted ice-cream for me and you.
I’m dreaming of a sunny Christmas
With not a stormy cloud in view!
And the days all sunny and hot
(Just the Christmas weather we always got)!
(last verse: ) I’m dreaming of a sunny Christmas
Just like the ones that we all know!
May your days be cloudy and cool
So you won’t have to open presents in the pool!

And there’s pawlenty more where that came furom! Shall I burn the box or publish it?

Hope the rest of you are having good weather so far and are looking forward to the festive season! And maybe you’d like to share some of my Christmas weather? ;-)

EDIT: Meowmy FINALLY got the music video uploaded. It's on my pet page - "Mahna Mahna". Enjoy!

We got the same storm here in Ballarat mate. We got a thunder clap so loud that it woke me up and I just shot my head straight up with a wide eyed look. You know what mum did? She laughed at me and went back to sleep. How rude.

I hope the warmer weather is kind to you in Bendigo mate. Stay cool.

Concats on having Diary of the Day! Samson, I just love your diary entry! Your mom is a wonderful writer. I'd not thought much about Xmas in Australia before. Also, your video rocks! I used to drink from the faucet like that. Mum cured me of it by putting 'bitter apple' on the handle. Oh yes, I actually turned on the faucet!

Have a Merry Xmas!

Thank you all fur the concats and the comments! I'll write another diary entry soon with another poem!

Colorado, that is so kewl that you actually turned on the faucet! Most of ours are the knobs that you turn rather than the lever that you lift, so we can't work them.

Ka-zar, so far the weather has been fine, although muggy, here in Bendigo. (Except fur the one horrible storm!) But when it gets too hot, Meowmy takes pity on the dogs and lets them inside fur a while, which I do NOT like! :-/

Concars, Sampson! How hot is it? We had a hot summer here, but it's been very cold and it's still fall! Hope you enjoy your tree!

Tiger, the other day it got up to 40 degrees C, which is about 104 Fahrenheit. But it's not so much the heat as the humidity, which makes it feel about twice as hot as it is! I think our electricity bill is going to be high this time, because of all the air-conditioning we've been running. Except fur when we lost power fur half the day during the storm the other day, and couldn't run the A/C... :-/
