Squirrel Stuff I Own: Jesus Squirrel Shirt

Folks, this is not the first time we've seen a rodentia and religion mash-up on this here blog, but it may well be the classiest time.

My friend A sent this to me ages ago and I'm so embarrassed it took me so long to put this on the blog, because damnit, it's so awesome. You can't tell from the photo, but this is actually on a t-shirt and I would totally wear this if I weren't such a slave to fashion.

He he.

Squirrel Stuff I Own: Squirrel Nutkin Sticker Book

Oh Squirrel Nutkin, your strange story of tormenting the angry owl and (spoiler alert!) eventually losing a part of your tail is so very strange. What is the message here for children?

I guess the message here is "Hey, there are stickers in this book and it's only 99 cents!"

Listen to the Squirrels

I left my office today to get some fresh air during lunch. I went through the nearby park because I like to admire the fat little fuzzy squirrels who inhabit it. As I walked through, I noticed the squirrels were going a little crazy. They were making that disturbing chattering noise that they make when they're upset, and they were all standing totally still.

"What's wrong, little squirrels?" I asked. And that's not a lie. I actually said that to one of the squirrels.

I finally figured out what they were all looking at.

This hawk was just hanging out in the bushes nearby. And this photograph is just barely zoomed in. I was probably three feet away from him. He was very, very intense.

If I hadn't paid attention to the squirrels I would have walked right by him.

Why didn't anyone tell me that there were squirrels on the Starbucks holiday cups this year?!?

Found Squirrels: Bergdorf Goodman Window Squirrels

I spotted these creepy little white squirrels while we were admiring the many holiday window displays on Fifth Avenue yesterday.

Definitely creepy. And I love rodents, so I imagine most people are skeezed out by these guys.
