We decided we needed to settle down a bit before Lost starts, so we practiced part of the Ashtanga Primary Series. Bernardo is doing Upavistha Konasana or wide angled seated forward bend. That is one of Jen's all time favorites. Brian just rolls his eyes jealously when she plops down the the floor with ease. Her butt sticks up just like Bernardos too!! I am doing hanumanasana or monkey pose! They named a pose after monkeys!!! OMG that is awesome!!! Brain has been practicing this one for a while and just two days ago made it on both sides. It was pretty freaking awesome!!!! Now, we are just waiting for Lost to start and find out how our cutie pie Kate is doing.... We still hope to run across her in the jungle and cuddle attack her. She won't know what hit her!!! Well, we are off to make popcorn and watch the show. More posts tomorrow... Monkeys out!
Yesterday, it was 82 degrees outside. Today, 59!!! What is going on with the weather?!? Did a meteorite hit Earth? Are we entering the next ice age??? Is Guillermo's vow to quit farting effecting global warming? What is going on??? What's worse, Jen's been gone for over 10 hours so she can't answer our questions!!! Too many long hours for her lately! She needs some good quality minkey time! (Only ten more days of work for her this school year. Then she is ours for the summer!) Since we had the whole day to ourselves, we turned on the Weather Channel and saw that a cold front came through. Good thing, we thought the worst was coming our way!
Hey all! In case you didn't know, Brian has a niece and nephew spending the summer in India! Some tourism + yoga training. They got a LOT of shots before they left, but apparently were takin' down by some JACKFRUIT. Major bummer, but we think they'll be on their feet in no time. We decided to try some jackfruit as a tribute...all we could find was canned, but that's OK.
Bernardo decided to give it a go (smelled good to ME!) and he enjoyed it, but was felled only an hour or so later by some cramps. Poor guy! But he was back on his feet fairly quickly, and minkee shananagins were on once again. More power to Evan and Kelly!

What better way to spend a three day weekend than hanging out and enjoying the weather. At least until the big storm hit last night. What a doosey! However, this weekend was all about having fun and relaxing. We channeled our inner minkee and swung around the sun porch and the apartment. We hooted like minkees and scared the next door neighbors dog! (which is a good thing, she never stops barking when she's outside.) We also laid out so I can work on becoming even more mocha brown. There was even a few rounds of our favorite minkee games like Scrabble, Twister, Zombies and the all time best game ever; Barrel of Monkeys! All in all a pretty good weekend. I wonder what Jen and Brian did?
Jen explained that the thing in the basket was a prototype for the two of us. She apparently tried out a number of sizes before she came up with the perfect minkey size. Which is good, we are so cute and cuddly this size I can't imagine being THAT BIG! She apologized several times, she forgot that she hadn't gotten rid of it. I took it upon myself to destroy it. So, I farted on it for good measure, then Bernardo and I tried to rip it to shreds. However, NO opposable thumbs made that pretty hard, so Jen took the scissors to it and it is now destroyed. Whew! Glad that is over. I was a scared little minkee for a while. By the way, sorry I farted on your pillows Jen. You might want to throw the cases in the wash along with your favorite comfy pants. Sorry, its what minkees do when they are upset. Love you.....
Must be some strange kind of hybrid. Whatever, Bernardo and I are very pleased with the results. Bernardo said I must have a "Brown Thumb". Awesome (altho I always thought it was "GREEN thumb"....). Brian must be very proud of us, as he has been smiling and giggling since we showed him our plant.
Now, time to enjoy the fruits of our labor, minkee-style.
Keepin' it real...Guillermo, out.

Things were going great until I decided to play a little prank on G-Unit. He didn't take it well.
But I suggested we get right down to some minkey antics, and he got over it quickly! Which is good, I hate it when he gets pouty!

All in all, a good day to be a minkey, but then again, isn't every day?!

Bernardo here... Wow, Jen has been soooo busy this week with work, she hasn't had enough time to play with us :() So, we are reaching out to give her a hand and are starting a 'Caption This' segment to the blog. We need your help in creating our adventures. Unfortunately, Jen made us with tiny knit hands and we are unable to type for ourselves. We are taking suggestions for this photo until May 21st at midnight (however we will still be a bloging from time to time as well). The winner will have their caption on this post and we may even include an autographed, yes I repeat autographed photo of these two handsome fellas. So start the creative juices flowing... No, not you Guillermo.... Man, he farted.....:( Stinky Minkey!
O.K. Jen was almost two hours late coming home from work, she 'claims' she was helping work on a big PowerPoint for work. Whatever, we needed to get down to minkey business and start playing! So, we got into the hair tie basket in the bathroom and started fighting over them. Well, that just lead to more fighting and now we are stuck!!! And yes, that is my tail wrapped in there too. This is very uncomfortable. She came in the house and you know what she did?!? She looked at us, walked past and left us sitting on the couch bound together. What a butt head!!! I can't believe she just left us there!!! Now we have to wait for Brian to come home and help us out. I hope he gets here soon.....
Since Brian and Jen don't have any kids yet, and technically Jen did create us, we thought it would be nice and write Jen a poem or two for mother's day. We can be so mischievous and time consuming we also decide to be good little minkeys and give her the day off. (But not Brian!!! We may sneak attack him again today!) Anyway, here is our first poem:
Sorry loyal readers that we didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Jen had some appointments and went to the mother of all book sales so she dropped us off at the local spa for the day for some serious minkey pampering. We got ear massages, tickles and hugs from the cute little massage therapists. Then came the the minkey pedicure. We were so relaxed that we loosened our scarves and Bernardo put on the grass skirt from Cinco de Mayo party we had. After we were picked up, Jen and Brian went to go see Iron Man. They tried to leave us at home, but we hid in Jen's purse and got to see the whole thing. That movie was AWESOME! I think I may have to make myself an Iron Man outfit so I can be just like Tony Stark!
Tomorrow it is take your knit animals to work day (at least for Jen and Cara it is!) We are looking forward to some scholarly adventures and I hear there may be a field trip in the works.... What can two knit monkeys and a dog do on a field trip? Let's see where tomorrow's festivities take us!!! It is going to be awesome!!!
