OH dear.

I've lapsed again.

This blog is hard to keep up with, y'all! I have been jotting down and snapping pics every day, but it is not easy to keep up with all the monkeys I see all the time! I suppose if i had a magic smart phone i could post things when I am away from my computer, but I don't. Not yet, anyway.

But I think by now you all get the picture. it is endless. i'll see what i can do to re-motivate. meanwhile...

"It would be like those poor bicycle-riding chimps who had to perform after the Beatles!"

--Phoebe on Friends, who doesn't want to play guitar after Ross, who is inflicting "The Sound" upon everyone at the coffeehouse.

right on schedule

"Guys! This monkey-mugger story could make me famous!"--Robin Scherbatsky on HIMYM, who wants to do a report about Marshall getting mugged by a monkey, except that... wait for it... wait... for... it... IT NEVER HAPPENED! It was a lie.

The whole episode is about this monkey business, but i don't know if there's an actual monkey in it.

this was on SNL last night. first of all, it was awesome they did it, and second, they did it great! literally.


Today is the Super Bowl for most people. For me it was Baby Shower day, two in a row, at the same time, so i had to do a little time management. I just got home, checked my email, and this was on msn homepage:

Cat Man Do

I never watch Globe Trekker, but i decided to check it out for a bit tonight, and sure enough, there was a visit to the Monkey Temple in Nepal.


*If you haven't noticed already

there are usually more than just one monkey per day. monkeys, apes, whatever. primates. every. every. every. day. And it gets a little tiring to keep track of sometimes!

back to back

Family Guy, 5:00pm: Chris is told to go to his room, he doesn't want to go because of the "evil monkey living in my closet"

Family Guy, 5:30: the family help Lois escape from jail in a van. Peter says they'll just stay wherever the van stops and try to blend in. It turns out to be Chinatown. Chris says "at least there wont be an evil monkey in my closet anymore."

do they plan this shit?

W + K

"wait, there's an invisible monkey"--heard on a tv commercial for an upcoming show on KGW channel 8, about super bowl ads and the local advertising agency Weiden + Kennedy


I would totally go see this.

they really ARE

As soon as i can get a link to this, i'll update the post. Its very giggly.

family tree

from How I Met Your Mother, Barney:

incredulously: "You're not from Missour-a??!?! Well I'll be a monkey's uncle!"

second time this phrase has come up in a month. what is it's origin? anyone? yeah, it's weird. so I google-image'd and this was the first pic that came up for monkey's uncle:


i wonder if it's real...

Thanks Julie!!

Look what Julie texted me this morning! All day I got caught up in things like scrambling for rent money, babysitting, and watching an AWESOME Blazer game. But here he is now, before i sack out with Harry Potter, this very cute guy, who looks just like this guy!

this is getting out of hand, Huffmeister.


i gathered monkeys all day, and yet my evening took a surprise turn and by the time i got home it was past midnight. ok, in chrono order:

1) Sam Seder on Ring of Fire radio program, appx 1pm: "...they are talking in monkey voices."

2) Trip to Fabric Depot, no big surprise to see monkeys, but I wasn't even looking. This very cute fabric was just behind the red flannel i had come to buy:

and this was getting quite the ogling from a tiny old lady, I was not about to snap a picture of her looking at it:

3) After the Depot i went to Columbia art supplies to pick up some fabric dye, and this was next to the register:

UPDATE: o shit i forgot to post the pics. its february.

All I wrote down earlier was "...a monkey would be a refreshing step up! a monkey would talk less!" and I cannot remember what show it was! Either HIMYM or FG .


i admit, i am still surfing the web for no dang reason. what am i thinking! my time would be better spent outside, it's GORGEOUS. Portland is always mild and wonderful when the rest of the country is arctic blasted. lucky us. but this guy? you just know all the locals are like "there goes another gringo loco..."

all the news thats fit to blog

Thank you, msn homepage, for keeping me informed of the day's important topics.

yester yester day day

I let the day get away from me before I could sit down and post. I have a good excuse though: Enchilada Dinner Party. It was delicious. But earlier in the day, going to visit my friend's brand-new baby, the topic of The Jungle Book came up, specifically the Orangutan character, King Louie.

Fine Homebuilding

Yet another magazine my housemate has a subscription to, sitting on the kitchen table. I started to flip thru while eating my breakfast, and on the letters to the editor page i went immediately to this entry, not even reading any of the others:

Sewing, watching/listening to Family Guy: James Woods is going to star in a TV pilot written by Brian, who wanted Elijah Wood for the role. James is making a list of demands, and at the end of it says "Oh, by the way, I need a chimp sidekick." So I got my camera ready and...
