AFL Round 14 ....

Saint Kilda are playing North Melbourne tomorrow afternoon.
It's a home game for Saints.
I hope we can pencil this one in with a win to keep our spot in the top 8.
But it is easier said than done.
Our matches against North in the past have frequently included a bit of biffo.
So hopefully our players will stay cool and no one will get suspended.

Rabbit Face ....

So whatcha want?
I'm doing an impersonation of a rabbit.
Plus I'm feeling a bit grumpy.

Oh the elegance.

Community Cup Footy ....

A pretty good crowd showed up for the Community Cup on Sunday.
Paul Kelly coached the Rock Dogs.

Blue Ruin played out the final set, and one of my humans even won one a prize in the cheerleaders raffle!!
(Some vinyl, some CD's a TShirt and guitar strings!!  woo hoo!!)
Looking forward to next year already ;)

Cold, Wet, Feet ....

I stepped in a puddle and my paws got wet.
My humans gave them a rub down first...

Then I completed the job.
Sometimes you just have to do it yourself if you want it done right.
Although I must say my paw does not look like it's attached to my body in this photo.
Extenda - paw.

Security Brief ....

I'm feeling pretty mellow and relaxed.
Blissing out in front of the heater after a busy day looking after the flat.
I did my job.  All secure.
I was in charge while my humans went to the Community Cup footy match today.
Always a good day, with proceeds going to charity.
Local muso's (Espy Rock Dogs) play against community radio star DJ's (Mega Hurtz).
Final score today - it was a draw!!!  Final score - 35 points a piece.
(Brings back memories of an AFL Grand Final not that long ago which was also tied ... sigh ....)
No doubt pix will be to come.

The Legend of Bonnie Doon ....

This is where Bonnie Doon is on the map.

In 2006, the Saints had their mid season bye break in Bonnie Doon.
None of this fancy high altitude training in the States for them.
There has always remained some mystery as to what did actually go on.
See the article here, (third paragraph):
We can only imagine.

Aerial photo.

The countryside.

The lake.
Ahhh.... the serenity.
I think they are all going their own way this break.
Maybe they should have gone back.
Only time will tell.

AFL Round 13 ....

Well, it's a bye round for the AFL St Kilda Football Club this week.
We are hanging on to 8th position by a thread.
If luck is on our side, (and why wouldn't it be?) we will stay there.
Paws crossed.
Because of the bye, I have a guest, 'Peaches' the cat who takes after my own heart and
shows impeccable taste by supporting the NFL New Orleans Saints in the USA.
Looks like she has just laid a tackle to possess the ball in this photo.
Go Peaches!!

My Friend, The Heater ....

In these days of winter, this heater is my friend.
We have bonded closely this winter and are spending a lot of quality time together.

I'm Back ....

I'm back after a short break, and doing one of my favourite things.
Sitting in a box.
This activity ties with sitting on and ripping up bits of paper (or paper bags) as
one of my top 10 things to do. 

Whatever is also in the box is heavily scrutinised.
(Please note all fresh foods are scrubbed before human consumption).

OK, it's all looking pretty good.  The check is over.
However I think I'll just hang out here with the veggies for a while.
They smell nice and I like it here..

AFL Round 12 ....

A nerve wracking night ahead with Saint Kilda v Adelaide Crows in Adelaide.
This is going to be one tough game.
So I'm hiding under my scarf with my paws fully crossed.
I am confident this will help the Saints prevail.

Pedicure Time ....

Starting with the front right foot.
This looks pretty interesting.

Continuing with the rear left foot.
I'm feeling a little put upon with this whole situation.

All done!
I'm feeling pretty spic & span.
And happy it's all over for another few weeks.

Wakey Wakey ....

I want my breakfast.
This human should be up already ...

Maybe if I whisper sweetly in his ear ...

Hmmm.... ineffective.
Enough of this 'sweetly' stuff.
Maybe if I get right in his face and bite his nose ...

Ahh, yes, perhaps unsurprisingly, that works.
I can taste my chicken giblet pate already!!
Yummy ;)

Guest Foot Fetishist ....

I have a human friend 'J' who lives with a cat called Sebastian.
My humans went to visit them recently, and Sebastian has shown himself to 
have a bit of a foot fetish.
You can see here that Sebastian has clamped himself on to one of my human's boots.
In my opinion, he polished it up really rather nicely.
It's nice to see such attention to detail.

AFL Round 11 ....

Well, the lads are playing the Gold Coast this afternoon, (up north).
I hope they had a pleasant trip up yesterday and got lots of sleep.
I think we will do well, but the Saints will have to harness GAblett.
No doubt Jones will stick to him like glue, he's been doing a great job tagging this year.
*clears throat*  'Oh when the Saints .. Go marching in .. Oh when ..'
(you know the rest ...)

Exhausted ....

The festivities are now all over red rover.
My ribbon bow is now a little limp, as am I.
Time for a nap.

Diamond Jubilee Style ....

With reference to QEII's Diamond Jubilee, I thought I'd rise to the occasion.
Here I am wearing my gold ribbon bow to the side.

Here is a wonderful example of how to wear it Bow Tie style.

Here I am channelling Lizzie, right here, right now.
I feel there is a massive resemblance in this photo.
And I'm am feeling extremely elegant and refined.
I never knew my 'birth' parents, but they must have been classy.
At least I don't have pesky Korgi's under my feet.

Greek Style ....

Here I am tucking in to some Greek Style yogurt.
Normally I love the fruit flavoured varieties more, but I couldn't get enough of this one.

Action shot. 
Gotta get the good bits around the edge.

And the bits right down the bottom.
hmmmmmm.... yogurt ...........

Contortionist ....

There's nothing like taking a nap with you head twisted upside down.
I may not look comfortable, but I have it on good authority that I was fast asleep.
(And even snoring).

Then I woke up.

Eyes open, but I had no idea where I was.
So I just stayed put till I figured it out.
Safer that way.

AFL Round 10 ....

I am holding it in, but inside I'm a nervous wreck.
We are playing Richmond tonight, at Docklands Stadium.
Last year we tied. 
Can't get any closer than that.
