Before bed tonight, we got out one of our favorite books to read. Well, it isn't so much reading as looking at the hillarious pictures!!! (I do worry about the mental health of these bunnys though.) Bernardo and I would recommend this book to anyone who needs some humor in their lives. The unfortunate part is, this book does not work as a bed time story as much as get us riled up and want to stay up all night. Bunnys are funny!!!
(Yeah, that's Captain Bananas in the background trying to steal some of my thunder....He is VERY proud of his uniform, let me tell you)
While Jen and Brian were out, we went digging around in the kitchen cupboards and look what we found. Some nice juicy worms to feed the fish. Bernardo and I decided we needed to play with them for a while before we put them in the fishtank. It was a good thing too. Did you know that fish can't have this type of worm? It can kill them!!! Jen came home just as we were lifting the lid to the tank. I thought she was going to scream! By the way, sorry Jen we are just little monkeys, we didn't know any better. She grabbed the worms out of our hands and tossed them on the counter. I almost fell in the tank in the process. I know it is about my 'suds and bubbles' time, but I don't want to take it in nasty fish poo water. Gross. Jen was nice enough to let us keep playing with those funny looking worms. The only thing is now B-man and I smell like cherries!
Hello to minkeys and non-minkeys alike. Ho-hum...another gloomy day today, but as you can see from the pic above, Bernardo and I are quite resourceful when it comes to keeping busy. After all, if we were outside all day, how could we POSSIBLY have time to put toilet paper rolls on our heads...I mean, can you imagine!?
Bernardo is "Bongo the Mammoth" (?) today, and I am Monkey-Tron 2000 from Uranus! Not sure why that is funny, but it has keep me in stitches all day ("stitches" = stuffed minkey, get it! heehee).
Jen came home from work today and talked to us about the Earth Day lesson she was teaching about recycling and how we can all do our part to save energy and help out our Mother Earth. Being monkeys, we used to live in the jungle and we know how important it is to preserve our planet and do our part. (The problem was it was hard to take her seriously, she lost her voice and sounded like Minnie Mouse!) Then we found the reusable bags Jen uses to go grocery shopping and turned them into minkey hammock swings. They were fun to play in, but we had to be careful not to fall out and get hurt. We've had a pretty fun and eventful day. And to make the day complete, Hell's Kitchen is on in a few minutes!!! Earth Day Rox!!!
Gotta go...I hear Bernardo giggling in the other room, and that's usually a sign he found something for us to play with...awesome! Perhaps I will post more today if we take a break. Being a minkey can be so time-consuming!
Today is such a beautiful day that we couldn't stay inside. We decided to go outside and play on the deck for a while. It was really hard climbing the railing to get to the ledge of the deck, but Bernardo was there to give me some help by letting me step on his head to reach the top. You would think that because we are monkeys we would have the natural ability to climb up there on our own. The problem is that Jen made us cute 'little guys' so we aren't able to do the things the big monkeys do. After we played up there for a while, we laid out for a bit to get a sun tan. Bernardo was a wimp and wanted to go in waaaay earlier than I did. He said because he is darker the sun makes him hotter. I think he is just a wimp. Jen told us we can't get sun tanned, but I don't believe her. She made us go in anyway. She said she couldn't be sure an animal from the woods wouldn't come and take us away. We are way to cute and some creature might want to take us home. No way! Were going in!
Today was the most beautiful day.... The sun was shining, and a soft breeze blowing in the air. We came out onto the sun porch and meditated with the monkey statue while Jen practiced the Ashtanga primary series. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I hope we have more days like it soon!!!
Hello there, this is Bernardo comin' atcha! Guess where me and my best minkey ami went today? You got it: FRANCE! In honor of Hell's Kitchen tonight, we went to France to see Gordon Ramsay. Apparently, he is British...oops! But we still had fun. We got these cool chef's hats, called "toques" (which apparently is Poncey-talk for "big poofy hat"), and some whisks, and we also got some great bread and wine and flirted with the little French chics....oui! They could not resist our cuteness factor (we had the cute dials turned to "11" !). Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse when one of those cute girls sprayed the B-man with perfume...I smelled like a street-walker for the rest of the trip. Then I found out that Guillermo had blown half of our trip money throwing it into the "neat little wish fountain" (?) Turns out it was actually something called a "bidet" (DON'T ask!!!). I was a little peeved, but he didn't know any better. Actually, knowing him, throwing money into a bidet might actually grant his wishes! By then, it was time to get home anyway. We had a good trip, but were ready to come home.

Well, the piercings had to go.... I think Jen and Brian were a bit disappointed in my for my irresponsibility. They said I looked cuter without them, so of course they had to go. Plus, I was getting stuck on the socks in the sock drawer. I am still bad a@@ though. Brian said I was still a cool monkey and he helped me make this awesome mohawk. Don't I look cool! Jen says I look like a Vegas show girl with this on my head. I have no idea what she is talking about, do you?
While Jen and Brian were off to work, I decided to go down to the local tattoo parlor and get some body piercings. Did you know that they have laws that prevent them from working on anyone under the age of 21! Since I'm only one they wouldn't do it, so I went to the mall and stopped at Claires. I laid on the monkey charm, and asked the girl behind the counter for her help. She was reluctant at first, but I can be quite convincing. She started off with my ear. DID YOU KNOW THEY USE A PIERCING GUN?!? It hurt like h@ll! I tried to keep my composure, but I cried a bit. She felt sorry for me, so she rubbed my ears to make me feel better. That felt nice!!! Since I am knit, the hoop in my nose didn't require the gun, so it didn't hurt at all! Now I look bad a@@! Hope Jen and Brian don't make me take them out.
While Guillermo is in the other room 'rejoovinating', I got into Jen's mail. Guess what, she got an Old Navy discount bag. Well, I did the only logical thing, made a hat out of it. Check it out, isn't it awesome!!!!! Jen and Brian think I look like the alien queen from the Aliens movie series. I don't know what they are talking about, I just know I look cool!
Every once in a while you need a little minkee rejoovination to boost your energy. It has been raining here for the last few days with no end in sight. It is quite depressing. I need some rejoovination. So, I got into my minkee pod (a.k.a. my favorite sock/hat of Jen's), hooked up my ears to the battery pack and now letting the Banana - Pod 3000 do its job. Hopefully I will get some energy soon so I can go play in the sock drawer. Hmm.... I wonder where Bernardo is? I havn't seen him all day.
Well, we are in prime T.V. viewing position. Our favorite show, Hell's Kitchen, is about to start. Jen got this new fuzzy jacket which is nice and warm and cozy! She zipped us in and we are red to go if you know what I mean. We even get to wear our hats! Gordon Ramsay is AWESOME!!! He calls people 'donkey' and fu@%ing wanker'. He even tells people to "p*ss off". He is HILARIOUS! I wonder what he would say to cheeky little minkeys if we ever met?!?
While Jen and Brian were off to work we got out the Scrabble and had some fun. We tried to stick to funny or monkey related terms. I rifled through the tiles and found my favorite words, banana powers, butt, fart, you know the usual funny ones. Bernardo was too technical saying I can't spell and he challenged most of my words. He even got out the dictionary if you can believe that. I wish I could spell better so he wouldn't make fun of me. After we finished playing, we picked up our things, made some tea and waited for them to come home. All in all it was a fun day!
Being helpful little minkeys, we decided to help Jen while she cleaned out the sun porch. We started by dusting the star votive holder, but it was so much fun up there we had to play around. You can really make that thing swing! By the way, sorry Jen, we didn't mean to hit you in the head while we were swinging. From there, Jen moved us to the floor. Apparently she was worried we would fall and hurt ourselves. She can be so thoughtful about our minkey well being. We then decided to play in the mini chimney. I thought it was a toilet at first, but Bernardo explained to me what it was and why there was a candle inside. Good timing too, cause I had to go! Anyway once we climbed in and started giggling, Jen decided to go outside and rake until we had enough fun and decided to quit for the day. She's so good to us sometimes!
Jen went to the store today and got my two favorite things.... 99 Bananas and a paper bag to play with. As you can see, I started off with a sip of my favorite banana flavored beverage and decided that wearing the bag on my head for a while would be hilarious. Which it was. Then I got a bit cold, so I climbed inside and hung out for a bit and watched Christopher Walken on SNL. That guy is so creepy, yet hilarious at the same time. Then it was off to bed. Brian and Jen so that I couldn't wear the bag to sleep in, It would be tooo loud and keep Bernardo up all night. Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted .

Today, the Jasmine plant Jen and Brian got for Christmas opened up. The apartment smells so nice and fragrant. It smells way better than my stinky minky butt! Jen took a close up of the open bud, do you see me in the background?!? I can't wait until the rest of then open up. It's nice to have a bit of spring in here. We need it after the long winter we've had. Jasmine smells AWESOME!
Pilot Guillermo here. Bernardo and I made this cool airplane out of an old Kleenex box. Check out our hats!!!! We've been flying around the apartment all night. We dive bombed Brian's head, I don't think he liked it though. He just kept shaking his head and calling us 'April Fools'. I wonder what he means?!?
