5 Questions Game - Quick Version and AnipalAcademyAwards Ceremony/Pawpawty

Hi all - it's me "Mario" sneaking in for a "quick" post.

When I last wrote in my bloggy, I said we probably wouldn't post anything until after July 18th or so.  Well, so I lied!   he he - not on purpose tho.  You see, a few of my blogging friends included me in the 5 Questions Game.  My name was mentioned over two weeks ago by a couple of friends.  Because my name was mentioned such a long time ago, I told M I wanted to do a quick post to answer the 5 questions.  I'm changing the rules slightly because four of my friends each asked me 5 questions.  So, I'm going to pick one question from each friend to answer.  I didn't want my friends to think I didn't want to play the game, cuz games can be fun.  So, here goes:

Question 1 (from Cathy Kiesha at

How did you start tweeting?
Well, dat is a question I'll answer in detail in my next blog post cuz it's another good story.  Let's just say, M was curious as to what this "twitter" thing was dat she kept hearing about.  It must be good cuz Oprah and Ellen did it.  "Curiosity" is the reason.  So, stay tuned to my next bloggy as I'll be doing the story in detail.  (ha ha - you know me and details!) 

Question 2 (from Pandafur at

What are you most skared of?
I gets skared when my peeps take off on me for a few days and leave me home alone with just a sitter coming in.  I is just so thankful to have a good home dat I'm afraid I'm going to lose it and end up on the streets again and homeless.  I no liked dat.  If my peeps are home with me, I feel safe and secure. 

Question 3 (from ShivaandJaya at

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall - and Why? 
Dat's an easy question.  I like spring, summer and fall if the temperature is just purrfect for opening the windows.   I love to get up real close to the birdies, chipmunk and squirrels and hear their sounds.    Winter seems to go on forever and we can't have windows open.

Question 4 (from Lynx217 and  kitties Curzon, Jada, Nimbus at

Who is your favorite human?
M and D are both my favorite oomans - D because he has the best lap for lap sitting.  We quite often take a nap together each day or maybe a couple of times each day.  M  because she plays with me, and she's better at it den D.  I loves dem both.tho - just for different reasons.

Question 5
I hope I didn't overlook a question from someone.  We tried to keep track, but it's been kinda busy around here. So, I'll answer one more question.

What is your favorite toy or game?
I really don't play much with toys by myself.  But if M plays with me, then I like either chasing a ball after she rolls is down the hall, or I like playing with string when she drags it around and I chase it.   I has lots of toys to play with, but I just choose not to play by myself.  he he - M says I must not have had much of a kittenhood.  She even got down on the floor with me, put a mousie in her mouth, den flipped her head and tossed the mousie up in the air - trying to show me how to do it by myself.  I just sat and looked at her like "crazy oomans!"

Now, I'm supposed to pass this game on to more friends.  But, I know many of my friends have already played the game.  If you are reading this and haven't played yet, consider the game passed on to you, if you care to play.  It really is fun.  Just answer the same 5 questions I answered and pass it on. 

One more little note before I sign off for the day.  I hope you are all coming to the combo AnipalAwards/pawpawty on July 16, 17th and 18th.  We have a very talented, dedicated committee that's been working very hard to make this a fun and special event.   And, best of all, we get to finally see who the winners were of the various voting categories.  Now keep in mind, the following schedule:

Friday, July 16th - Preaward pawty at the #NipClub where several presentations will be made for "fun" categories and recognition of anipal authors, etc.   The fun starts at 2:00 PM EDT.  After awards are handed out for "fun" categories - it will be time to Party until closing.

Saturday, July 17th - 2:00 PM EDT start of normal #Pawpawty with FrugalDougal leading us off.   Approximately 2 hours later (or 4:00 EDT) the serious Awards will be presented.  After all awards are presented and there is time for congratulatory comments, it will be time to resume the normal monthly #pawpawty until 2:00 P.M. EDT on Sunday

Talk about a fun-filled weekend  - this is it!!  Get those dates marked on your calendar.  I hope I see all my friends there and all of their friends - anipal or human.

Have you responded to Twitvite yet for the Awards/pawpawty?  Here's the link.  Please don't put it off any longer.

See you all at the Awards/pawpawty - I'm planning on having lots of fun and letting my "fur" down!

Mom & I are gonna go visit Grandma this Friday and Saturday, so I'm not gonna be able to attend any of the pawties. Booo! But, I suppose I should be o.k. with it 'cause we're going to Mom's hometown 'cause they're honoring my Grandpa's memory early on Saturday morning. There's a 5K Run/Walk in his memory to raise $$ for Parkinson's Disease research.
