  • Haven’t You Always Wanted a MonKEE?

    2011 - 11.11

    Watching a Telus ad tonight (the one with the monkey, in case the title didn’t tip you off) reminded me of my uncle’s store in Calgary.  Pisces Pet Emporium is pretty much the most amazing place EVAR, even according to other people.  Anyway, the Telus ad reminded me that I really wanted to buy a marmoset from them.  Yes, they have marmosets.  I managed to refrain and just took some pictures, especially since I thought I should PROBABLY ask permission before bringing home a pet larger than a gecko.  But if I did buy a marmoset, this is what I would do with it.

    • train him to write rejection letters for me
    • train him to give head scratches
    • give him the bananas that start getting spotty and I don’t like any more
    • share my pizza crusts with him
    • string up a hammock between the posts on my bed for him to sleep on
    • take bajillions of pictures of him
    • not call him Marcel (although according to Wikipedia, the Friends monkey was a capucin)
    • get him a little Canucks jersey to wear (but only if he wanted to)
    • teach him to play disc golf (and help run tournaments)
    • train him to poke me in the back of the head if I start playing Facebook games when I’m supposed to be writing.

    In a strange synergy kinda thing, today I had my first taste of the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream “If I Had A Million Flavours” inspired by the Barenaked Ladies song “If I Had A Million Dollars”, which is where I got the title of this post from.  WOW!! (it’s really tasty…swirl of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, toffee, white chocolate chunks, chocolate covered almonds, peanut butter cups and probably something else I missed…)  I’m sorry that you can’t have any ice cream, and I’m sorrier that you now have “If I Had a Million Dollars” stuck in your head.

    …I’d buy you a green dress…but not a real green dress, that’s cruel….
