At Last! My Invite is Here
Yesterday evening, via Scowl-Face's email, I received my invitation to the Teddy Bear Sleepover on Thursday, May 26, 2011. Thanks, Wild Thang!
Quite High-Brow, Don't You Think?
I'll be checking-in with the teddies after my Library closes on Thursday evening--I know how to work the security touchpad--and so we're all set for some pretty exciting, nonstop, overnight fun. We're planning a treasure hunt, with special hidden treats that teddy bears love scattered in every nook and cranny of the Library, which, as you have probably seen for yourselves, afford ample hideaway spaces. Then there's the dancing bearathon--you'd have to see it to believe it--which we will be holding in the CAR (Children's Activity Room). I'll be reading scary stories--but not too scary, Broadway Gal--which will make the teddies' hair stand on end during the frightful parts. But it's all good fun, and we'll enjoy ourselves immensely.
Wild Thang has many great activities planned for the teddy bears as well, but, as M.C. (master of ceremonies), I wanted to bring some special "Cauliness" to the table.
Sleeping, Too, is Scheduled
(My Favorite Acvitity)
"To sleep, perchance to dream--ay, there's the rub." William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act III, Scene I. Willie knew all about sleeping, although Scowl-Face says that he was talking about something else--but Scowlly says a lot of things he doesn't know much about, so you have to take it with a grain of salt, as the saying goes. Anyway, I know a bunch about sleeping, and it's the cat's pajamas. The teddies will love snoozing in their home-made. specially designed beds, created by the MPL Decorinator and Wild Thang. I wish I had a photo of one of them (the beds, not Decorinator or Wild Thang), but maybe in a later posting. Make it so, Wild Thang!
Well, I'm sure my pals, the Teddy Bears, will have many interesting stories to report to their kiddy caregivers who will be picking them up the next day. I probably will be gone by then; sorry, kids, but I'm a roving reporter, after all, and news waits for no feline.

P.S. What more appropriate musical closer could we have than Elvis Presley singing "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear" from the movie Loving You (1957).
