So yesterday I had to do my Cat in the Hat appearance at a birthday party (I sold my self at an auction). I needed to change into the outfit before going and while I look goofy while wearing it, I think it looks even goofier when you don’t wear the whole thing (such as minus hat and whiskers).

So I’ve got the whole thing on, I’m driving the convertible, hanging onto the hat. I’m in the second lane to the left. I pass the cop in the right turn only lane. He swoops out of the lane and into mine (there’s now a van in-between us) and starts following me. It must be due to the rash of Cat (in-the-Hat) burglaries we’ve had lately or maybe there’s a gang of bank robbers who dress up as Cat in the Hat?!? He follows me a few miles and even makes a left turn when I do. He doesn’t follow me down the street to five year old Sophie’s birthday party, could you have seen it if he had pulled me over in front of the house? She would have been traumatized forever…

The party was great BTW, I read a lot of stories, a few Dr. Seuss and then some. We had fun and I even got an offer for another gig. But doing this more than the few times I do it for school auctions (which always seem to be on summer days) is more than enough for me. Maybe if I could do bachelorette parties instead…?

I love my Christmas tree! When I get a few more decorations up (and clean up the living room) I’ll do a picture. All the white lights are really bright though.

Another 26 things got by me and I didn’t get more than one photo taken. I can’t find it (maybe it’s still on the camera).

I need to finish my 101 things in 1001 days list since I know I’m going to be crossing one off this week.

It was Cat in the Hat day in the morning and afternoon preschool so they asked me to dress up and come read to the kids! We did “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham” They all had paper hats (and big bow/bowties) that looked like the Cat in the Hat. :)

BlogSpot.com seems to be down tonight (a few blogs and memes I like are up there).

Cat in the hat in a classroomSo you could have had the Cat in the Hat come to your house for the meager price of $55!!! I went a little cheap (and that was after I bid against the first low bid that was just sitting there; does that count as insider trading?) but a lot of items seemed to go for a bargain this time around; I’m not sure if there wasn’t enough people, too many items or the money crunch is hitting more and more pockets. I’ll end up reading at a young lady’s birthday party in a few months (I think she’ll be six) and I think her mom will probably making it a Dr. Seuss themed party. I always run into the birthday girl around town, I wonder if she’ll recognize me? The (school fund raising) auction was fun; it’s always great to do the silent bids and then see what you got later… I walked away with four items that I “won”.

If you’re into sports you should go to these types of things, there is always all sorts of sports memorabilia (some autographed), tickets and tailgating type packages put together that you can bid on. I’m not so into the sports but I do notice the quantity of items along these lines…

cat2004It’s still reading month so I got to be the Cat in the Hat a few more times today! I got to read to preschoolers, first graders and fourth graders. I read enough so that I feel that “I speak for the trees”! Green Eggs and Ham is by far the favorite Dr. Seuss book for any age. The flash didn’t go off so none of the pictures came out very well, technology isn’t perfect I guess…

Plus it was a baby weekend at work, we found out Dan and Patti had a baby boy Friday night and that Kristen had Triplets this morning!

And even with the weird weather today, there were rainbows on the way home (they didn’t photograph very well though, even with the new camera)!
