No Bonking For George - And No Night of Passion For Brenda.....

Ok............ I dont know if anyone remembers back at the end of March, when I was so excited when George and Brenda came to live with us....... well, George is no longer with us, he died in the early hours of Tuesday morning..... of what, we aint to sure.....and dont say 'shortage of breath' lol

DSCF3023

This was George back in March..... we got him and Brenda when they was about 6 weeks old.... as cute at buttons they was.......

DSCF3557

This is George today, laying in a chinky take-away plastic container.... he dont look to well does he? nope...... ya know why? cos he is actually dead.......

Ya see Brenda and George settled into our home real quick, they loved us, and we would get them out every day........and they had very healthy appetites......

But ya see....... it must be this house and midgets....... cos Brenda grew and grew and grew and George grew and stopped...... Brenda is well big now and just ripe for breeding...... and we would look at little midget George and wonder how the bloody hell he would be able to bonk Brenda cos she is HUGE compared to George....... but I suppose like in human life, they would of maybe looked up Page 37 of the Karma Sutra and worked out a good position LOL

DSCF3561

This is Brenda she is a bit of a big girl and as healthy and ripe for the taking.......

DSCF3558

See Brenda's flakie ear, she has just shed her skin again today....... poor George was not even half the size of her......

About a week ago, my Tom said that George was not well...... he was eating not to good and was a bit slow when picked up....... I said that maybe he had a migraine or had just had a busy day....... but Tom just blank stared at me like I was a retarded loon......

George got weaker as the week went on and upon ringing the vet I was met with......not a lot one can do for a sick chamelion...... bloody tosser vet...... so we went on line and typed in sick chamelions and hunted for a reason other then a migraine as to why George was poorly....... and then When Tom got up Tuesday morning, George was just laying on the floor the top of the mud with his little legs in the air......

I ummmm'd and arrrr'd as to try and give him the kiss of life, like I did once to me stick insect..... but seeing as how I only managed to blow me stick insect up like a little balloon and explode it, I thought that maybe George should not go through that trama.......

So George is laying in this chinky take-away carton while we decide what is to become of him....... I think the little skull might be to tiny to try and keep....... he is well dried out today and very stiff...... maybe I could dig a little hole in the end of his tail and wear him with pride around me neck on a chain......

Hang on a cotton pickin minute.......... I know what I will do with George...... I think I will send him to MrFab, cos he likes that sort of thing :).......

We will miss George, he had become an important member of this family...... and now Brenda is all ripe and needing a bonk and selfish George goes and bloody dies on her...... oh well.....

RIP GEORGE...... we loved you whilst you was here......

Also today we grieve the sad loss of 'Floats' he/she is one of our little Pearlscale fish that we have in our fishtank....... he/she has been acting strange this pass few days...... sort of hanging upside down in the water with its tail on the surface and its face pointing straight down...... Ive had to give it a poke many a time throughout the past couple of days.... and it would swim off for a little while...... only for me to find it doing the same 'play dead trick' again and again..... well about an hour ago, I poked it and it sank to the bottom lol...... and then when it came to the surface, I realised by its bulging eyes that maybe this time the 'play dead trick' was for real.......

DSCF3562

This is Floats after I got him out the tank with a jam jar, I have him on the side in the kitchen, just incase he is really just 'playing dead'....

RIP Floats, I will miss poking you.....

Enough death Twaddle for a Thursday........

My fishies used to do that too... weird things like swimming sideways or in circles... like how a cat walks funny if you put tape in her side.

Poor dead fishies =[ and poor Brenda.. left all alone without her sticky companion.

Lynda said...

Yeah, poor George doesn't look so great. But I wouldn't send him to Mr. Fab since he is not home because his father in law died.

George may prefer a spot in your garden anyway.

So, are you getting another one so Brenda can have a bonk?

Geogrie Porgie Pudding pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry
When Brenda came out to play
Georgie Porgie faded away.

RIP little ones.

His skull would make a fine addition to the collection. Find a dry, protected place outside to place his tiny body and let nature help clean it.

You can have my nephew's lizard...well not really, I just threw some worms in there last night. I had gloves on and everything.

Yes I admit it, I am a wimp.

Ba Doozie said...

I think you could donate georges body to science, they can make a model of him, people can study him and plastinize him for exhibit.

how long will you wait on the fish? til it turns white and stuff?

Lynn said...

Oh, Mel. that's so sad. I'm glad you have Janet to keep you special company.

JBelle said...

Well. That's a pisser.

jolie-jordan said...

OMGosh...RIP and poor Brenda...she'll probably be next.

do you suppose there is a pet heaven?

are you sure there is no foul play? Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm???

Bugwit said...

Sounds like being a pet of Marmy is a dangerous occupation. The attrition rate is astounding!

;-)

MarmiteToasty said...

~(((melody ann)))~ the tape on a cat is well funny lol.....

Brenda will be ok, we will try and find a mate for her, it was just a nice thought that we had them from babies and grew them big enough for their first bonk :)..... a bonk a bonk my kingdom for a bonk lol..... funny how things mirror LIFE lmfao......xxxx

Mom not Mum said...

LMAO Aww poor George. Sorry for your loss. LOL Oh my. I bet you could figure out a way to keep his little skull. Cowie would love a tiny little friend I bet. AND you could take Georgie all sorts of places Cowie wasn't allowed in.

The fish picture had me laughing - okay I have a sick sense of humor apparantly. At least you made sure it was dead. I tossed one in the toilet once only to have it start swimming at THAT moment - well guess what fishy - your last hail mary attempt did NOT work.

the psycho therapist said...

/wiping head, crossing self

Whew, for a minute there I started to wonder if I would be getting another "present". Oh yes, yes, yes, a MUST for Harold T. Fab.

I suppose like in human life, they would of maybe looked up Page 37 of the Karma Sutra and worked out a good position.

You and your goddamned wit. Just when I think I know you, you go and pull that kind of rabbit out of your hat.

I love it when that happens.

You're brill!

The Woman said...

RIP George and Floats. Sniffle.

Jade said...

Will Brenda be finding a new boy toy? Maybe she wore George out!

P.S. You've been tagged

toadman said...

Wow.. it's unbelievable pet carnage at your house this week marmie!

Incidentally, I think you'll have better luck drying the fish for a necklace, than the Chameleon.

So long George and Floats. May your afterlives be more lucky than your before-lives.

Peanut said...

I do honestly believe, Mel, that you are the only person I know who takes pictures of dead pets!

LOL

Poor pets.

(Sorry.. I'm not really laughing... it's a figment of your imagination)

Kati said...

Sorry to hear about George & the fish! Hope your son & Brenda are comforted by their memories of their friend George. *wink*

cookieboy said...

ciara said...

(((mel slapper ho)))lmao @ the post. as much as it is tragic, it's also quite humorous. you said that maybe you could put george on a chain and wear him around ur neck...better idea: get a charm bracelet and add floatie lol i remember u talkin bout making ur stick insect explode lmao. oh, mel...what r we to do? lol xoxo

Dr.John said...

Well I hope all the dieing is over , over there.

Pixie said...

It is very sad.
It is a damned tragedy.
The loss of a loved one is never easy.

But I have tears streaming down my face from a laughing fit because you never fail to crack my shit UP.

You're a trooper.

BurdockBoy said...

I believe George had too low self-esteem against Brenda's majestic presence. He probably starved himself to death with "I'm not worthy" echoing in his head. Poor little bastard.

MarmiteToasty said...

~(((((momNmum)))))~ LMFAO@your poor fishes last ditch attempt of life lol..... I emptied once, years ago, the water out of me lads little goldfish bowl into the sink to clean it out, well I meant to only empty half the water and refill but the dam fish whooshed into the sink with the water and how the bloody hell it happened I will never know, it swirled around the plughole and got sucked though the little holes in the plughole, JUST as I grabbed the end of its tail....... what to do........ I had the tail this side of the plug and the whole fat fish was the other side of the plug, now scaleless cos it must of been squeezed thin to get though lol....there is no way I could pull it back through the plughole without killing it...... so one of me sons had to go outside with a bowl and yank the drain pipe off the wall out side and at the count of three I let the fish go and turned the tap on and me lad caught the fish outside before it went down the drain....... LMFAO.... scaleless, but alive... well, for 3 days before it decided that life with no scales and with its internal organs squashed to god knows where, it passed away..... RIP scaleless fishie LOL......xxxx

Your garden must be more grave yard than garden...
With all of the diein goin on over there you want me to let you adopt Baby??? Not too sure she would make it out alive...

Starr Kelso said...

I'm reading to many of your posts. Need to see a M.D. Matt and I were up fishing, caught a mess of trout.
Got back at midnight. I cleaned them. One had actually survived. Incredible. I went to grab him and he started swimming around in the sink. I put clean fresh water in the sink with some ice to keep the water temp cool. I figured "well old buddy,if you make it to the a.m., I will take you out to a local lake and let you free." Next morning I went down stairs and he was dead. Only he had jumped out of the sink, about 6 feet, onto the floor where he had died and then dried out. Dang.

Bugwit said...

Well, Mel, you know a Black Widdow has no use for a blokey after the bonk anyways, right? I mean, you could keep one around to unblock the sewer lines, but you already have that covered!

Besides, like pets, there's plenty more where the last one came from.

Inland Empire Girl said...

I always love hearing the tales from your house, but it is sad to hear of losses. My friend Bev ( from my picture of the retreat) grew up in Sunderland- she is there now with her mum.

Scots said...

ROFLMFAO .... chamelion soup .. you sick woman!

BUT ... aha .. a thought just entered my sick mind ...... make the afore mentioned soup and take it down to the daisy damp wash on a Tuesday ...

sounded like a bit of a soup kitchen for the down and outs anyways ... I'd love to see them tuck into a hearty bowl of chamelion soup! PMSL

Michael said...

Condolences on your losses. Just think of it as savings in pet food.

My bad!

ciara said...

in a coffee shop in a city
which is every coffee shop in every city
on a day which is every day
i picked up a magazine
which is every magazine
read a story, and then forgot it right away.

they say goldfish have no memory
i guess their lives are much like mine.
and the little plastic castle
is a surprise everytime.
and it's hard to say if they're happy
but they don't seem much to mind.


from the shape of your shaved head
i recognized your silhouette
as you walked out of the sun and sat down
and the sight of your sleepy smile
eclipsed all the other people
and they paused to sneer at the two girls
from out of town

i said, 'look at you this morning
you are by far the cutest
but be careful getting coffee
i think these people wanna shoot us
or maybe there's some kinda local competition here
to see who can be the rudest.'

people talk
about my image
like i come in two dimensions
like lipstick is a sign of my declining mind
like what i happen to be wearing
the day someone takes a picture
is my new statement for all of womankind.

i wish they could see us now
leather bras and rubber shorts
like some ridiculous new team uniform
for some ridiculous new sport
quick someone call the girl police
and file a report.

in a coffee shop in a city
which is every coffee shop in every city
on a day which is every day.
