It's official...

the world has gone mad. Let me introduce Lulu, an electronic cat taking Switzerland by storm. Apparently she's the must-have item of the year! How?? I hear you ask do I know that and why do we have one?? erm... Anyway, I was given instructions to go and collect her which I duly did and as I carried her out of the shop the trouble began. The thing started to miaow and miaow and miaow.
As I got onto the train I figured I was less likely to meet anyone if I sat in the bike carriage and all was going swimmingly until the train stopped, the doors jammed and the four people waiting in the corridor were serenaded by my bionic cat. At that point I was doing battle with the box and my Swiss army knife but the thing was so well wired to the bottom that it wouldn't budge. I felt sure there was an on/off button somewhere but I simply couldn't get to it. I now know it was in fact a 'try me' button causing the problem, kind of a 1 minute miaow loop. So, Lulu is now home and settled and well, what more can I say??? Posted by Picasa

oh how funny ..

Jess had a croaking toy frog and after a while he was added to a bag in the cupboard under the stairs to go to charity. Everytime the central heating clicked on, he'd start to croak inside the bag - it was histerical

Lulu is something like the Zhu-Zhu pet creating quite a stir here in the states. Zhu-Zhu is a electronic pet hamster! Personally I would take our Lulu over our Zhu-Zhu just because she is cuter!
