Those Sneaky Little Bovines

While I've been out substituting for Pre-K, running Maybelline to guitar lessons, studying for my final and general housework, Fred and Bessie, those little stinkers, went out and got their own line of merchandise. Can you believe it? And they're not the greatest when it comes to the computer, what with the lack of fingers and all.

I sat and looked at all of their products. Tsk tsk tsk. Pretty poor job, guys. My little cows don't have much artistic talent, so the t-shirts and postcards and mugs and dog shirts (they really got carried away!) were all pretty crappy. But they were mooooving in the right direction, so I'll reward them this weekend by teaching them Photoshop (just as soon as the Hunny teaches me - or I'll hop over to P-Dub's site and learn). Until then, I deleted all but the one my Hunny designed. And even that one, a friend of his sketched out, but I like it!

What am I going to do with these cows?! I'm beginning to think they need a crate, since I can't leave the house anymore without the two of them getting into trouble! *sigh*

Until I write again ...

I don't even know what to say about this except...dude, you got a Dell. Me too!!

Christine said...

Bwahahaha... Noooo... don't crate them. Then we can't read about their little antics! ;)

I didn't see the paraphanalia! Cow stuff - it happens. Maybe that could be their logo.

Too cute! I love it when they get up to trouble!

Marguerite said...

T-shirts! Yay!

Melissa said...

Wow! Those are some resourceful cows!!

Flea said...

Aren't they resourceful, though? And I'm told that the creative process takes more than teh little cows have to give and that I have to be patient. Generally I'm a patient person. Generally I don't want things. But when I do, watch out. And I want my own cow t-shirt!!! But we have to wait for it to be done right. :(

Ohhhh...I love those little cows! Such spontaneity! I know they have been naughty, but don't be too hard on them, cows just wanna have fun!

Colleen said...

who knew cows could be such trouble! at least they're better than my dog and her painkiller addiction.

And I finally got my lazy behind over here (I always love your comments on other people's blogs)...didn't realize you were in graduate school for theology...that's cool! I got my bachelor's in Religious Studies and wanted to go to grad school, but just haven't yet.

I was kind of kidding when I said what else you got?

seriously ! I want to be you when I go up Flea--and now I have to buy a t-shirt thank you very much!

Flea said...

Susie, I appreciate the gushing, really :D, but I don't teach anything online and my daughter took the one good picture of the ice storm aftermath. Sorry. As for substituting, I try and stick to pre-k and kindergarten because I just get to play with the kids. It's cheating, really. As for the cow merchandise? Not up yet. Gr.

If I wasn't technologically challenged, I would subscribe to Fred and Bessie's posts, because I nearly missed this one during my grey week! And the fact that your Bovines have photo shop when I don't (fell off into the deep blue somewhere when we updated our operating system), is a little irritating. But even so, I'll take two shirts please-- one large for now and one small (to sit in my closet taunting me).
