The Wrapping is Always the Best Part - #ThrowbackThursday

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Check out the cool new cat tower Glogirly bought me!

KATIE:  That's not a cat tower, Waffles. That's the wrapping the cat tower came in. 

WAFFLES:  So it's kind of like a gift with purchase?

KATIE:  Waffles, what do you think this is? A department store cosmetic counter? No, it's just the foam wrapping the cat tower was shipped in. 

WAFFLES:  So did we have to pay extra for it?

KATIE:  No Waffles, it's just the wrapping. I'm sure we'll just throw it away.

WAFFLES:  You mean in the GARBAGE???



KATIE:  Why oh why did the door to the kitten quarantine room have to open?

WAFFLES:  What did you say, Boss?


About Today's Photos
Wall of today's photos were taken on 12-12-12. Twelve used  to be Glogirly's lucky number. That is until this. Knowing a crazy height obsessed kitten would soon be sprung fro kitten quarantine, we decided a cat tower was in order. To say it was like assembling furniture from IKEA blindfolded and with only one hand is an understatement. Granted we love our tower and still use it everyday. But the assembly process was... well, Glogirly really has no words. At least no words appropriate for public consumption.

It took about 8 hours to assemble and was one of those things where there are mystery parts left over. It's still standing, so hopefully those parts were optional.

  1. There are always optional parts. Why do you think we all have appendixes. Or is that appendices? Whatever. They serve no useful purpose now do they?

  2. My castle had to be assembled... fortunately it was not as difficult as your tower! And even more fortunately, I was not living here yet so I wasn't subjected to a stream of HBO words.

  6. Mum bought us a new tower a couple of months ago and tried to put it together - in the end she took it back and the man in the shop built it up for her and then had to help her get it into the car!!

  7. What's the name of the Tower? I'll let hubby assemble it for 8 hours.

  8. Kudos to Glogirly for persevering for that long to get the tower built. The head peep would have been looking up Tower Assembly R Us after half that time.

  9. They either don't send enough parts or they send too many. And the directions to put so,etching together are written by monkeys in a zoo.

  11. Wow, you turned the wapping paper-feline encounter into a real art form. I love it! Funny because we wrote about 2012 also today! I hope you all have enjoyed many happy times on that condo

  12. MOL!!! The Mom would have some HBO words for sure if hers had to set that up! Waffles, never lose that kitten curiosity.

  15. Well, that's good to know for when the Woman purchases a new tower for the bedroom! Cause otherwise she'd get really mad!

  16. 8 hours? Gollygosh. Well, it sure does look like a nice tower.

  17. There may be extra parts in case you lose some. Or for Katie and Waffles to play with instead.

  18. Look at how small Waffles is next to that tower! Oh my I bet that would make an interesting contrast today!

  23. I think The Staff would have given up after 5 minutes and got her nephew to put it up for a fiver!! MOL Such sweet pictures!!

  24. It is hard to imagine Waffles being so small. Mom says that she hopes you recycled all that wrapping. She's sort of a fanatic that way. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
