Blogger Blunder

Dear Blogville I am sorry that I cannot post photos from my 500th post PAWty. It seems I have EXCEEDED my photo limit for Picassa Online Albums (where the images are stored)and must now PAY to increase storage. I wish I had known this 499 posts ago. I would have planned better. So this is all you get today until I figure out how to get past this roadblock. Love Noodles

Preppin' for my PAWTY and Praise for HIZ HONOR

I heard this was FRANKIE and ERNIE FURTER day! OMP! That is so fantastic cuz they are two of my FAVE-O-RIGHT doggies in Blogville. They are funny, they are concerned, they are. . . ahem CUTE and best of all - THEY ARE BLOGVILLIAN!

So hail to the chief and his sidekick! All Hail Mayor Frankie FURTER and Ernie

My TRIBUTE to Frankie and Ernie FURTER
Frankie and Ernie are something MAJOR
after all, Frankie is da MAYOR
But he is helped by little ERNIE
to make sure BLOGVILLE is safe and purty
Hail to the chief may his rule be LONG
and may his laugh ring long and loud as a GONG
Lo I can't sing, he reminds me of a SONG
There is nothing better than reading his BLOG

On to other news, I have been working hard on my 500th POST PAWTY and I just don't know how I will get it all done. Last night I played a little PITBULL (did you know he ISN'T a real DOG???) and filled up HUNDREDS of water balloons for the relay races. I have not figured out the dynamics yet but when I do I will let you know. 

ANYhow, I had a dickens of a time trying to fill up those balloons. I have NO THUMBS and it is very hard to hold a balloon under the faucet with NO THUMBS. It took me ALL night but I finally got about 101 done. Only 399 more to go.

OOOOO! What am I gonna do with THIS water balloon?
I have a three day weekend to prep for this big bash and to come up with a clever contest. I hope I can do it under such a tight deadline.

TONIGHT, Friday May 25, Midnight Pacific Time is the deadline for paw-ticipating in Sunshine the Cat's Caption Contest. I am expecting some GRRRRRR8 captions. I already have QUITE A FEW that really set my giggle into GEAR. To get busy and enter.

UPDATE: Late afternoon Friday, May 25, 2012

Did I mention this post is part of a BLOG HOP??? OMP!!! Sorry. Check it out!!!

FOUR more . . . and the PRES comes to TOWN


Today is a special day. There are only FOUR MORE POSTS until I hit the magical 500 posts mark (I am including today's post). I cannot wait! My plans for a celebration are moving right along. I have so much to do.
Remember to send in your CAPTION for SUNSHINE the CAT's contest. We, Sunshine and I, will be taking caption submissions through midnight Pacific Time FRIDAY 5/25/12. So put on your thinking caps and send yours in now.

Being in the SF Bay area has been very exciting over the last couple of days. Yesterday, President Obama came to Redwood City (near where Mommy #2 works), Atherton, and Palo Alto for fundraising dinners. Then he went down the peninsula to SAN JOSE, MY hometown, to sleep a little and then have some fundraising breakfast. Today he will fly out of Moffett Field Air Station (near where Auntie T works). Traffic was all cloggy last night and again this morning wherever he was/is appearing. But that is okay. No matter what your politics are, it is still EXCITING when the PRESIDENT comes to your TOWN.

That said, Mommy #2 was a little late yesterday because of the excess traffic around all of her routes. That is the part of his visit I did not like.

So I am planning on ANOTHER CONTEST to commemorate my 500th post. I just don't know yet what it will be. Hang in there. The big announcement is coming in THREE MORE POSTS!!!!!

Wordless Wednesday, Caption CONTEST, and a Blog Hop

Happy WEDnesday Blogville!!! Only 5 more posts until my 500th! I cannot WAIT!!!! In the meantime I have a number of things to accomplish. I noticed that Sunshine took over my blog yesterday. Yeah, yeah - I know I promised to SHARE the blog with her once in a while . . . but frankly I do NOT like to SHARE!!!! And she HIJACKED MY BLOG. Nonetheless, I will let her HAVE her little day in the SUN (haha, get the joke here?) and will run her CAPTION CONTEST for her. So here you go.


The Rules ARE

  1. Create a caption for the above photo
  2. Must include 500 in the caption
  3. Email your entry to before Midnight Friday 5/25/12
  4. Only ONE caption entry per Blog Family, please. Otherwise Mommy gets overwhelmed
Prizes are AWESOME and will be based on whether you are a DOG or a CAT or whatever. . . as long as you are a PET. But to be honest, I have no idea what I would present to a SNAKE or a RAT.

Finally, THIS POST is part of BLOG PAWS Wordless Wednesday BLOG HOP so hop on over there and check out some of Blogville's FINEST. . .

FIVE Hundred? I Say "Big Deal"

Hmmmm. . . what's in here?

This is Sunshine the Cat weighing in on what NOODLES calls an AUSPICIOUS occasion coming in 6 POST days. . . her 500th post. Well, I say Five Hundred BIG DEAL! Of that 500 posts, how many were by me? Uh, Maybe THREE. And I think I am being GENEROUS with that number. I mean really - what is so special about a mouthy know-it-all PUG. Not meaning any disrespect (hah!) but HOW can anyPUGGY write so many posts ABOUT NOTHING IN PARTICULAR?

So I am going to have my own little contest for this 500 post ( coming up on May 30). Let's have a CAPTION contest. I will SNEAK . . . I mean POST the picture tomorrow (Wordless Wednesday). Get ready with your CLEVER CAPS because I want this to OUTSHINE anything that Porky PUGGY Princess comes up with.

Seven More POSTS

Me, pondering my Mr. Chewy post a while back

The BIG DAY is almost upon us. What day is this, you may ask????? Why my 500th POST for A Bowl of Noodles. I cannot believe I have shared that much with all of you - my Blogville Pack. I am hoping to mark the occasion with a couple of special days and, yes, maybe some prizes. I am open to suggestions about how to best mark my 500th post.

TGIF &ATW (Thank Goodness It's Friday & Almost The Weekend)

First of all, Mommy is apologizing for the lack of new pictures of me. She cannot locate the camera and her phone takes very inadequate photos. Yeah, sure. I think she is overwhelmed by my cuteness and cannot actually pick ONE picture to post.

So Happy Friday! Today is extra special HAPPY because Mommy #2 stayed home from work (she is "working" from home today) and that means EXTRA cuddles and a walk to the park pictured above. It is one of our favorite parks as it is close by and has DUCKS and GEESE and TURTLES and all kinds of kiddies. It is also a GRRRRR8 place to walk, run, ride a bike, roller skate, etc. And we've done it all there. . . well I don't have skates but Mommy #1 does.

I cannot believe it is already the weekend. That means EVERYBODY in the family will be home. So much opportunity for dropped food in the kitchen and extra cuddles for me.

The weather will be nice here as well. So Happy Friday and have a GRRRRR8 weekend.

BTW, Noods and Noodies seems to be tied in the nickname voting.

But I'ma Noodle. . . so I smell . . . Noodley?

My FURiend, Sarge of Sarge Speaks Out is hosting a Nickname Game. So in the true spirit of Blogville Citizenship, I am posting my entry into this auspicious contest. The rules are simple: (1) write about my NICKNAMES and (2) have my FURiends comment on my NICKNAMES. So here goes

  1.  Noodle-ee-ohs - My Mommy #2 calls me this when she is calling me over. Sometimes I respond
  2.  Noodies - I DO NOT know where this one came from. The Lil' One calls me this all the time. I feel so . . . NAKED when she does.
  3. Na-goo-dles - Your guess is as good as mine
  4. Pretty Girl - Self explanatory and so accurate
  5. Puppy Girl - Again, self explanatory. Mommy #2 calls me this a lot while scritching under my chin. She calls me her LITTLE PUPPY GIRL

(Tribute to Beastie Boy Adam Yauch)
You walk up to the water bowl - this THIRST has gotta GO 
You dip in your NOSE - wait . . . just a second MO' 
You slurp a bit - then slurp til' it all FITS 
 You WALK away while the excess DRIPS

(chorus) I'ma PUG - PUGS are just RIGHT to SLOBBER
Your human shouts something - and says HEY!
You shouldn't SPILL on the floor that WAY
But WAIT! How are you saying to BE?
I am really just trying hard TO BE ME
(chorus) I'ma PUG - PUGS are just RIGHT to SLOBBER

Don't worry HUMAN and have no FEAR
It isn't like I am SHEDDING everywhere 
WAIT are you saying I do that TOO
You're just JEALOUS cuz I'ma PUG and not YOU

(chorus) I'ma PUG - PUGS are just RIGHT to SLOBBER

OOOOH! What was IN that WATER????

Unexpected Pleasure

My Mommys came home early from work and school yesterday. It was ballet day for Mommy #1. And you know what? They took ME with them! I went bye-bye in the car all the way to the ballet studio. We parked under a nice shady tree and I settled down on Mommy #2's lap. She read and I enjoyed the cool breeze coming in through the window (it was a warm day away from the tree). Toward the end a little sun spread across the window and I really enjoyed the warm feeling across my face.

I had so much fun. I LOVES LOVES LOVES unexpected pleasures like a ride in the car.

This sunshine sure feels good

Into The Frying Pan

Lat year at this time we were still suffering from too much rain and too much cold. I thought the sun would NEVER come out to play. And for the majority of the summer that was true. Too too cold.

It certainly is NOT true this Spring. We seem to have gone from the ice box straight into the FRYING PAN! It is HOT today. It was HOT yesterday. It was so HOT on Sunday that my dog park trip got cancelled! What is the prediction for tomorrow???? A little cooler but still HOT.

I have been out in the back yard numerous times and I have noticed one thing missing - my SWIMMING POOL. It is the perfect pool for me, as you can tell by this picture, as it is small and round . . . a little like ME, hehheh.

I have looked everywhere for my pool. I KNOW I put it away at the end of the season because I am so good about that. (I wonder if that wicked RACCOON dragged it off somewhere.)

I WILL find it, though. Mark my words. And when I do. . . . Ahhhhhh sweet delicious COOL water.

Wednesday Went Without Words

I DO NOT know what happened. Yes, it was Wordless Wednesday . . . but it appears A Bowl of Noodles went POSTLESS Wednesday! That is just Wednesday Wrong! Sorry for messing with eFURRYbody's day.

It just so happens I DID have stuff to discuss which never made it into the Blogosphere. I can't remember ANY of them today, though.

So on Sunday I went on a mini-adventure to a dog park. It was a warm day so my Mommys and their friends decided to go for FROZEN YOGURT and then take me to the dog park. We all piled in the PUGMOBILE (Mommy #1 says the car LOOKS like a pug, too) and headed to the FROZEN YOGURT shop. It was a short but HOT car ride and I was really panting by the time we got there. Okay, okay, I was panting BEFORE we left, I admit to upping the drama here.

We found some nice cool spots to sit outside the shop. I cooled down some as I sat by Mommy's feet. She even let me finish her froyo which was vanilla, tart and honey flavors. Now that we were all cooled off, we piled BACK into the PUGMOBILE for a short ride to the dog park. This is the dog park that I used to go to BEFORE we discovered the really nice one near my house. We hopped out of the car and headed over to the gate. There were NO SMALL dogs at all and only a couple of big dogs on the BIG-dog-side. We went over to the side with a lot of trees and found a spot in the shade. I forgot how small and grassless THAT dog park is. Even though we were in the shade I was having some trouble cooling down. Mommy even wet my tummy, head and paws down in an effort to make me more comfortable (Yes, Mommy, it worked).

Since there were no other dogs we all got bored pretty quickly. Not that I even play with other dogs (I am working on it) but I DO like to visit with other humans. So after a short while we left the dog park and went to the playground that the younger humans wanted to visit. That lasted all of 10 minutes. Turns out it was a lot hotter than any of us thought it would be.

We finally headed back home to a cool living room and some chilled water.

It was a good day despite being warm. And I loves loves LOVES me some adventures.

Proper Posturing

This is the RIGHT way to BEG for a tasty morsel
Be it cheese or something more-so
I occasionally sit and add a whine
But truthfully the eyes work just fine
