world of witchcraft

dear readers, my boy and himself have taken up online computer games. they sit in my boy's room at their respective machines, running through tunnels and slaying gremlins. when herself went in yesterday evening they made their characters wave at each other! it is most surreal. my boy has already managed to drag proceedings down to a smutty teenage level. he proudly showed herself how he had been on a quest to find some odd sort of berries and that in return for completing this quest a lady character was going to bake him a pie and take her blouse off. as he says, computer games are so educational...

and some other news which has had me leaping about with glee - i am going to have a puppy! not me personally you understand. that would be a first for medical science even if i had not had my wedding tackle removed. no, this puppy is going to come and live with us! as you know, i love puppies. they have a real sense of fun and make me seem really grown up. i so enjoyed taking young rokit under my wing and teaching him a few tricks. its a pity he had to go and live in london, although i gather he is now something of a media star.

our new puppy is called dave and is also a lurcher. he was named after my boy's taxi driver. the little chap is the son of a lady lurcher belonging to the kind man who originally rescued my now sadly departed lady friend. dave is one of 8 puppies. when i heard this i was rather alarmed. while one puppy will be sheer joy, 8 might be a little too much for an old codger like me. but i was worrying unduly, dave's brothers and sisters are all going off to other homes.

we are off to fetch the little chap on saturday, so i will post some pictures of him as soon as we get back. wish me luck!

Loving the thought of you and your hermonal son zapping trolls and dreaming of boobies. Men...

And come on? You guys foster puppies? If anyone deserves some positive payback, it'd be your household. Good luck with the puppy and all...

I shit you not. I'm on my first cup of coffee this am and I had to keep reading that comment of mine 'cause SOMETHING was off and I couldn't figure what. I had to freaken google "hermones" 'cause my mind couldn't sort it through. Uh,ehm...HORMONES...ya, "hormonal".Shheshhh...going for my second cup now.

Congratulations on your soon to be parenthood Joker. Make sure you keep your ears and tail tucked in, a concerned well-wisher speaks.

We shall expect pictures!

mrs window, you must get a grip. and it is herself who helps me with my blog. perish the thought that she would be seen anywhere near a computer game!

mrs catofstripes, thank you so much. i will take your advice. i had problems with young rokit in the beard department too so i may have a trim to avoid young dave swinging on my beard!

we have just started doing this - which game is it - we're doing guildwars at the moment. sad to say I play games too. can't wait to see the puppy....

Lou said...

just realised from your title which bl***y game it is. haven't got that one yet...

I blame it on last coffee of the day syndrome!

A lurcher puppy! How exciting. I can't wait to see the photos of Dave.

another lurcher?
my heart swells....

perhaps the new pup can tear the man and the boy away from the screen.

Patience-please said...

Oh good for all of you!!! Can't wait to meet the little one...

I love puppies! My new puppy has brought me so much happiness. I know Lurcher will adjust and be just as happy. What a ray of sunshine you will be bringing into your home. Can't wait to see the photos.

You are hysterical! The title alone had me going! Then you son's "education" lesson had me busting up!

Love that you are getting a new puppy.

And womaninawindow made me spit out my diet coke I laughed so hard!
