Insomnia and Skippy Are Strange Bedfellows

Not that I was IN bed mind you.

[Wait. What is a bedfellow anyway?  I should probably go over to Wiki and research it.  Wiki knows everything dontcha' know.]

Anyway....

Last night I couldn't sleep and was goofing around, online, with a good friend. [Thank the heavens for da' interwebz, time differences and my pal] and created this to picture to email to her:


It says:
"Dear Mynx -

Thank you for sending me to America.  I miss Australia, but I am learning so much and making new friends.
Skippy is a great new Mom [although she may be losing her mind] and my new diet is Altoids and 59 cent bananas*. Yippee.

Love always, Wilma" [The Wombat]

Yep. It's official. I need sleep.

*Bananas are now priced at $13/two pounds in Australia because of the cyclone earlier this year. Yikes!

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday - [Sorry I was late to the party today but we were without power for most of the morning and afternoon.  Glad there are no more storms predicted this week.]

See ya' on the flipside Tadpoles!

That's some realistic looking wombat?

Sorry you can't sleep. I slept right through until 5 or 6 this morning! Not that it helped my mood any.

I guess our bananas are relatively cheap too but not as cheap as yours. Even with the exchange rate.

A good price for just about anything is 99 cents a pound.

Hi SkippyMom - do hope that you get some sleep this evening! (Thank heavens for Mynx!!). Loved that picture of Wilma the Wombat writing her little note to her previous owner!! Very funny.

Wilma is such a lucky wombat to be living with such an awesome woman. I love this so much and love our middle of the night (for you) chats
Hugs my friend

You might have been late but it was a good one.

That was so cute, Skippy!
I totally squinted and read the screen in your pic before scrolling down and seeing that you'd copied it in the post! LOL
Duhhhhhh! Wilma is so darling and looks so darn real I just want to squeeze her :D

Mountain Mama said...

Hope you get some sleep tonight but your insomia sure is entertaining for the rest of us :)

That was so adorable. And yes you need sleep. I've been sleeping crappy because of pain in my hips sleeping on my sides and I can't sleep on my back. So tonight, I'm taking the big daddy. Elavil. I shall sleep if it has to be coma induced! Want one? haha. Love you sweetie.

$6.50/lb of bananas?! If they'd keep, I'd mail some of mine over... I don't seem to like the damn things enough to eat them before they go bad (but they are not 59c/lb cheap... maybe 79c?)

At least creating an imaginative post about a wombat is better than just playing solitaire on the computer! Wilma sure is a cutey!

word vert: foethr. Birds of a foethr stick togoethr.

I have the gift of sleep - drives my husband nuts. We always joke that he could have sex with another woman, right next to me, and I would never know it!

Have a great weekend Skippy!

Your bananas are at 59 cents a pound? Ours is 69! :O
