For New Year's 2008



It hasn't made it to the I Can Has Cheezburger front page, or even the voting page's first twenty pages, but at least I can share my first lolcat effort with you!

And those who are here from Sheroes will recognize this tired old wheeze of mine (or of Ogden Nash's) from previous years, because I do this every year:

From his poem "Good Riddance But Now What?"

The clock is crouching dark and small
Like a timebomb in the hall.

Hark! It's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!


And wishes for a healthy, happy, prosperous, book-filled 2008 to you!

I have always loved your work--and the fact that you now have entered the lolcat-crafting world makes me adore you even further.

Happy New Year! :)

My whole house full (granted, that is only three people) very much enjoyed your venture into the lolcat world!

Happy New Year (while I am still capable of typing!)

Your talent knows no bounds. I fail at lolcat, but I appreciate them nonetheless.

A most delightful new year to you, your spouse creature and the menagerie!

Trust me, it took weeks of skulling to arrive at this one effort!

May this year be a vast improvement for you and yours in every way!

Your lolcat rocks. I was lol-ing! (I do lolcats too, usually of my cat, Jezebel, sometimes of random pix of cats I find.)

Happy new year! I realllly need to get back into reading this year... and my other hobbies.

Please do! Reading and hobbies keep us from savaging our loved ones, even when they deserve it!

And please, give Jezebel a pet for me!

Even my cat is amused (although he hides it well ^^)

Don't they all?

Huzza for books!

Ha! There's nothing like catching a cat with an exposed belly. So wonderfully undignified. Is the kitty one of yours? Which one?

Thanks, Tammy, for everything you did to help make 2007 an absolutely wonderful year for me. Wishing you, Tim, and all your creatures a happy, healthy, and all-around fantastic 2008!

It's Chess, the newest one--we have a number of pictures of him on display, since he do love to sprawl!

It's my greatest pleasure to share a book that I love, and I'm looking forward to sharing OUT OF THE WILD next year, now that I've recovered my nerves after the wild ride that it was! (The blurb effort is in your editor's e-mail in-box.)

Tim and I wish blessings of the new year to you and your burgeoning household--here's to a bountifully creative one for us all!

Just reread Terrier last week, and I'd say your reading public wants, nay NEEDS, a lolPounce. Clearly. If he'd ever be so undignified :)

Tim is already jumping in with suggestions like
"I iz in yur life, servin Teh Goddez"
and
"I can haz divinitee?"

I'm afraid. I'm very afraid.

I have many odd tastes. Lolcat stuff is so often just plain silly, and gives me much-needed laughs on grumpy days!

Happy New Year, JConder!

Y'know, I didn't realise that was a Northern Lights reference until I saw it pointed out in the comments. I made a lolcat using a still from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe once.

Happy new year to you too! Slainte mhath.

I had just seen "The Golden Compass" (in which they have Iorek drinking whiskey, not beer), and having a picture of Chess at full stretch, I couldn't resist.

Do you still have your lolcat?

I want to come back to Scotland. I only saw Edinburgh and what lay between there and Lancashire on either side of the train tracks. That's not enough for a Yank whose very proud of her Scots ancestors!

Love the cat, which one is it?

I forgot to tell you that when my mom was working at school she made me some cool book marks with pics from your books on it... They are so cool (my mom is real proud of them lol)

Anyway Happy New Year

Re: Happy New Year
That is Chess, the newest, also known as Lummox, also known as Mr. Whizzer. (Guess how he expresses affection?)

I think it's great your mom made you bookmarks! I have to let my publishers make me some, and then they give them all away!

Happy New Year to you and your family--it's off to a good start!

*sigh* If only I could have a cat! Lolcats will have to do for now, though. I spent nearly 2 hours looking through them last night.
Happy New Year!
