Morning duckling

Written by Alison | January 23rd, 2010 at 9:39 am | Comments

A friend sent this to me. Naturally I had to share. And by the way, the title is "morning duckling" as in "a duckling in the morning" however it could also be read as "good morning, duckling!"

Looks like we all need a pick-me-up

A commenter on my previous post said it looked like I needed a pick-me-up and I should look at puppies at a pet store. So true! But since I don’t have time to go to a pet store I thought I’d post cute photos instead. And then since I was posting cute photos of course I had to include some of myself because anything else? Criminal!

Here is a duckling.


Here’s Tobey looking scruffy.

Here’s me at The Gates a few years ago. It was orange and yet unspectacular.

Here’s Woofie when he was a puppy with his toy.

Here’s Tobey looking all smushed.

Here’s me on CNET’s The 404 which I’ll be back on April 10.

Here’s a cute kitten and duckling.

Here’s me with rollers stuck to a hat. (If you haven’t checked out the video of Anna, Natali and me discussing this hot trend, you should totally do so. It’s somewhere on youtube. Happy hunting!)

Here’s me on Red Eye last week.

War on un-cute

Written by Alison | February 17th, 2009 at 12:28 pm | Comments


Need an injection of cuteness in your day? I think you do. The awesome Joe McDonald sent in these pics. Apparently a fawn followed a beagle through a family’s doggie door in Bitinger, MD and it made the local news. It also made this blog, which is pretty prestigious.

Anyway, it’s all fun and games until the fawn attacks a family friend and you have to stab it to death.

Someone reached my blog by searching “caterpillars coughing cartoon pics.”

It’s funny because I’ve written about all those things, just not together.

Also I have puffy eyes from crying. Puffy sad crying pillow eyes. It’s very sexy, as you can well imagine. Also sexy: death, grief and mourning. Right?

I’m sorry, I’m making you uncomfortable. Shall we talk about puppies and ducklings?

I think this is in order:




There, I feel a little better.

See me on The Strategy Room at 3pm today EST

You can watch it here. www.foxnews.com/strategyroom

And then I’ll be on Red Eye Thursday night/Fri morning and The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet on Friday morning. I’m totally infesting your TV.

Infest is a gross word. Even if you had an infestation of something cute, like ducklings. In fact I’d almost say a duckling infestation is an oxymoron. But it’s not. Just almost. You know?

Cute puppy talking points

1. Who’s a cute puppy?
2. Are you a cute puppy?
3. Are you the cutest puppy ever?
4. Are you the cutest puppy in the whole world?
5. Has anyone ever told you you’re the cutest puppy in the whole wide world?
6. Has anyone ever loved a cute puppy as much as I love you?
7. How’d you get to be so cute?

Thanks Joe!

Joe posted this on my page at The Activity Pit. I wasn’t going to make today day two of the war on un-cute, but why not?
