I can't believe I said that

As Chicklet has been loafing on the chesterfield (that's couch for you non-Canadians) all day, she got to do all kinds of stuff from there, one of which: eating.

I made her what I believe is her favourite food of all time (apart from chocolate): shell noodle soup in chicken broth. It's quite the non gastronomic feast but.. it reminds her of her grandma and makes her feel better.

Mid second bowl, she felt the call of mother Nature and had to run off to the bathroom and tinkle. Thus leaving her half eaten bowl of soup on the living room table.

Guess who showed up? You got it... Sharkdog aka the bottomless stomach.

So, what did I say?




No soup for you!

I've turned into a Seinfeld character... well, at least I'm not George.

Ake: She gets a very sloshy uncomfortable feeling when she does, but at least... no barfing.

Cat said...

That's one of my favorite episodes ever. EVER.

Katherine said...

That is the BEST Seinfeld episode ever. "No soup for you!!"

Anndi said...

Cat: I howl every time Elaine let's him know she has his recipes... hehehe!

Anndi said...

Katherine: Very few episodes rival it... not even "Master of my Domain"!

Donn Coppens said...

Ah yes but atleast you don't have to muck about rinsing the bloody dishes before you place them in the washer eh?

Heinous said...

Our dog does that too. We have been trained in the fine art of 'putting the plate out of reach' courtesy of one fluffy terror.

DeeMarie said...

Bwah ha ha ha ha!!!!

Anndi said...

Donn: First, man have I missed that mug of yours. Glad you're back.
What do you mean dish washer...

Heinous: Amazing how our pets train us, huh?

DeeMarie: I actually chuckled a bit after I said it... and immediately thought: "Cool! I have something to blog about!"

goodfather said...

Awesome! I love the Seinfeld clip, heheh. I was just sitting on my chesterfield wearing my touk. :D

So if Chesterfield is Canadian, is Love Seat from Amsterdam?

Jean Knee said...

it's like Fridays where thety charge rib prices because the bread is a dollar a piece.


hooray, your blog usually will not load up on my computer

Anndi said...

GF (in a totally non girlie way, again): Does it have ear flaps? (It matches your power tools, right?)

Meg: I hope the love seat comes covered in plastic...

Jean: Yay!!! Guess there was a problem with the previous template.

Dana said...

Hehe! Glad you can find humor (or is that humour?) after all you've had going on!

Desert Songbird said...

At least you're not pointless. *grin*

Elle Charlie said...

That is a great episode. It's nice of you to be the guardian of Chicklet's soup. I need someone like you in my household - my dog gets my food more often than I'd like. It's hard to remember to keep it out of his ever-expanding reach!

Anndi said...

Dana: Laughter is the best medecine. I just hope all this illness and having to stay away from work doesn't land me in hot water.

Songbird: *sticking tongue out*

Elle: Years of experience, my dear... *sigh* and she stills bests me on occasion.

Mimi Lenox said...

Glad to hear that Chicklet might be feeling some better. Yes? No? Maybe?

Oh! I did your sexy book meme.
I want some stockings to go with my pencil skirt like the girl in the picture (actually, I have some of those...ahem...)shhh....don't tell anyone.

Travis said...

HA! I only watched a couple of Seinfeld episodes. Even so, I think 90% of Americans understand the "no soup for you" reference.

Dianne said...

I love Seinfeld references, my brother and I can have an entire conversation in Seinfeld ;)

hugs to Chicklet

steenky bee said...

Best. Seinfeld. Ever. Also, you have fancy names for a sofa? What on earth do you call a bed? I'm dying to know.

Anndi said...

Mims: I'm still trying to get her to eat normal food.
Yay! I'm working on the countdown (stockings? what stockings? the secret is safe with me *wink*)

Travis: Really? Only a couple?

Dianne: I love that you and your bro do that!

Steenky: I call mine Hank. No fancy frou-frou English butler names for my bed. No siree ma'am.

Chunks of Reality said...

I hope that you both get to feel better very soon.

I've read several posts of your blog and have really enjoyed my visit!! :)

Charles Gramlich said...

YOu know, I never watched a single Seinfeld episode but even I know this reference.

Anndi said...

COR: Thank you! And I'm glad you enjoyed your visit! You're welcome anytime.

Charles: Some stuff just becomes a part of the cultural fabric huh?

Jeff B said...

Poor Chicklet, she looses her soup and we're all getting a good laugh. I almost feel ashamed...almost.

Anndi said...

Jeff: They say bananas are brain food... no uncle Jeff, Sharkdog lost her soup. You remember the sparklepoop incident?
When Chicklet came back, her soup was safely waiting, protected from Sharkdog's mouth.

coopernicus said...

NOOOOO!!!!! Anything but a Seinfeld character (i was never a JS fan)

Cameron said...

LOVE...Seinfeld. You don't dance like Elaine, do you?

Cameron said...

Hey, and by the by, you're right. There is absolutely no way to stare down a kid. They're invincible.

Jay said...

Haha! And you even got to use it as it was intended. Brilliant!

Anndi said...

Coop: It just came out! It was a momentary lapse...

Cam: Um... no, I have rhythm.

And kids? They should be put to work interrogating criminals, or members of congress...

Jay: I blurted it it out and what I had said just dawned on me. So cool when shit like that happens.

Kate said...

Glad your chicklet is able to eat!

buffalodick said...

We actually have a hot dog place that would remind you of the soup Nazi... You better know what you want, order it, and move to the drink station!

blissfully caffeinated said...

This post covered 2 things I love: Canadian lingo and the Soup Nazi.

Perfection.
