On Einstein...






I don't get it. I have been discussing Einstein with momma. There is no getting through to that woman. Her last comment really left me baffled. I know she was not born in the States, but what am I supposed to make out of this comment???

She said.... and I quote: "No horse because while you are dreaming National Velvet[een] {add air quotes to this...} I am feeling "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ."

Yes, I looked up both references. No sense whatsoever. Do you think the momma is sipping funny juice? Hitting the catnip? I heard about catnip...
Momma may be joining Redbutt in rehab...

Hmm, very interesting quotes Miss Vie! I had to ask mama to please explain because I was not understanding either. My mama believes that the first quote -- about you dreaming about National Velvet is in reference to a very old movie (someone called Elizabeth Taylor who is actually an old lady now), was a horse crazy girl and wanted to win some kind of race. So maybe your mama thinks that you are turning into some kind of horse crazy girl (it happens all the time out here in California I guess). As for the reference to the cuckoo's nest thing, mama told me that there was this movie (another really old one) that is about a "nut" house here in California and yet another old guy who didn't used to be an old guy -- oh it's so confusing listening to 2leggeds sometimes. Why do you think they made a movie about nuts -- hmm, peanuts, walnuts, almonds -- they grow lots of almonds here. Or do you think your mama may think you are becoming a cuckoo (whatever that is?) Mama said we could watch both movies this weekend if I would like, but I think I'd rather go run through the muddy grass -- it's been raining again and the park guys just cut the grass again.

So, I am not alone. Movies about nuts... Ick my sister is "lergic" to nuts. Wonder is she has issues with that cuckoo movie. 2leggeds are crazy. I am now trying to lobby for Einstein from a different angle. The "fashion accessory angle". If I could only get Tim to feature a horsey on Runway....

maybe you should see if Aunty Robin could get Einstein into rescue, then have your mama foster him -- didn't she flunk fostering or sumpthin??? Rocky

No, she is too smart. She only fostered Rudy while his momma was sick... Momma says it would be a joke for her to foster 'cause she does not give anything back. But... I am not giving up.

Sylvie,
What if a stuffed pony came to your house?

I think Einstin should come for a VISIT!!! Maybe the visit could turn into something a little more permanent....

A stuffed pony? I don't know. I have never seen one of those. This morning momma said I need to grow thumbs and get a shovel if I keep talking horse... language barrier. Generation gap. Species gap... I just don't get her anymore...

mama says that she thinks your mama is referring to the horsey equivalent a a doggie poop bag! eeewwww!
