Visiting the Fairy God Kitties

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles, do you know where Glogirly is? She said, "see you soon, kitties," like a hundred years ago.

She's visiting the fairy god kitties in Boston, Ellie. She'll be home soon.

ELLIE:  What's a fairy god kitty, Mr. Waffles.

WAFFLES:  I'm not totally sure. Sounds a little like a cartoon or something. But she's visiting her godmother. And her godmother has kitties. 

ELLIE:  Are they fairies? Like with wings and sparkles and stuff?

WAFFLES:  Pretty sure they just have fur like us. 

ELLIE:  I think I want to be a fairy with sparkles and stuff. 

WAFFLES:  Do you think you could be a quiet fairy, Ellie. I'm trying to sleep here. 

It's the Fairy God Kitties!

Glogirly has been cheating on Ellie and Waffles. She's been shacking up with her godparents and their TWO cats. She's going to be coming home with all sorts of suspicious fur on her clothes and suitcase. 

RUSTY:  Suspicious? I don't look suspicious. I'm innocent, I swear.

BUDDY:  What you mean, Rusty. You're ALWAYS suspicious. 

RUSTY:  If I'm so suspicious, how come YOU'RE the one that has to get locked up in the bathroom for breakfast. 

BUDDY:  Exactly. 

That's right, Rusty can't be trusted around Buddy's breakfast. So why is it that Buddy is the one in the bathroom?! LOL!

Ellie: "I Wanna Hold Your Paw" ♩♬


ELLIE:  And when I touch you, (Mr. Waffles) I feel happy...inside. ♩♬

WAFFLES:  That's great, Ellie. But I'm kind of sleeping.

ELLIE:  It's such a feelin' that my love...I can't hide. I can't hide. I CAN'T HIDE! ♩♬

WAFFLES:  Heard you the first time, Ellie.

ELLIE:  I wanna hold your paaa-aaa-aaa-aaa-aa-aa-aa-aw. I wanna hold your paw. ♩♬

WAFFLES:  Sleeping, Ellie. Trying. To. Sleep.

ELLIE:  I wanna hold your paaa-aaa-aaa-aaa-aa-aa-aa-aw. ♩♬

WAFFLES:  Trying. So Very. Hard. 

ELLIE:  Where'd you go, Mr. Waffles. I still WANNA HOLD YOUR PAAAAAWW! ♩♬

Just Another Day in the Office

Monday through Friday, plus weekends too, Ellie and Waffles show up for office duty. Their primary workspace is the blue chair next to Gloman's desk. Doesn't even matter if Gloman shows up for work, they're always there. 

So very dedicated.

Happy 20 Years to the Couple that put the GLO in Glogirly!

ELLIE:  Hey, Mr. Waffles? 

WAFFLES:  Ellie? 

ELLIE:  What's it like to be an old married couple? 

WAFFLES:  How would I know, Ellie?

ELLIE:  Because you're old and we're a couple?

KATIE:  Watch it, Ellie. You're on thin ice. 

ELLIE:  Ice? But it's not even winter yet. 

WAFFLES:  Last Thursday was Glogirly and Gloman's 20th wedding anniversary. THEY'RE the only OLD couple around here. And you and I aren't exactly a couple. Got it?

ELLIE:  Are you sure? Maybe we could elope or something. 

WAFFLES:  You mean like melons?

ELLIE:  Is a wedding anniversary the same as a Gotcha Day? Did they gotcha each other? Like from the shelter and stuff?

WAFFLES:  I'm pretty sure they didn't get each other at the shelter. The story is that they met by chance, on a doorstep.

ELLIE:  They got YOU at the shelter though, right? And they got ME at a shelter! Will you tell me the story about how Glogirly and Gloman gotted each other? Please!!!

WAFFLES:  I'm not a super good story teller, but the Boss was. That's Katie. She's the kitty that came before you. So I'm going to let her tell the story. 

WAFFLES:  Thanks, Mr. Waffles. I love stories. Especially love stories.

...Once upon a time
KATIE:  I bet you didn't know that this is the photo that started it all. It was the picture we used on our very first blog header way back in 2009 when I started every blog post with, "Hi Everyone, Katie here."

I was an anniversary present. A nice man with kind brown eyes and a deep voice adopted me for someone he said was very, very special. This special someone had no idea what he was planning. It was going to be a HUGE surprise. He'd been hinting around ... telling her that he was working on her anniversary 'kit.'

She was thinking maybe a kit for washing her car, or a kit of accessories for her iPod or something.

Little did she know, 'kit' was short for kitten.

It was love at first sight.

Gloman's given Glogirly some very special anniversary gifts over the years. He's always really creative and silly about how he gives her presents. Sometimes he'll hide cards by her toothbrush or tucked inside her makeup bag. One year he hid a beautiful watch in the refrigerator next to the milk and butter.

But the most special gift of all was a little black and white kitten with a purple bow around her neck and a tiny little tag that read, "Happy Anniversary."  

The Story Behind the Story
Over the years we've shared the hopelessly romantic story of how Glogirly and Gloman met. And how they came to be Glogirly and Gloman. If you're new to the blog and like a sappy love story, turn off the Lifetime channel and click the story link below. If you already know the story and want to read it again, well that's your problem. 

Their story is proof that love is everywhere. 
And when you least expect it, love might just tap you on the shoulder.

Waffles On Labor Day


WAFFLES:  On account of today being Labor Day and all, I'm working extra-extra hard at laboring. It's important to look professional and stuff when you go to work, so I'm wearing my very best business tie. Ok, so it's my only tie, but still.

I bet you're wondering what I'm going to do at work today. 

WAFFLES:  First things first. Paperwork. Lots and lots of paperwork.

WAFFLES:  And then I have to work on the computer. You know, watching cat videos and messaging all my girlfriends on Facebook.  

WAFFLES:  Wait, what??? I'm not supposed to be watching cat videos and Facebooking when I'm working?  But isn't that what everyone does at work?

Happy Labor Day to our US Friends & Readers!
... and Happy Labour Day to our Canadian friends! Celebrated on the first Monday in September, Labor Day honors the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of their country.

It's also a great day to go shopping for mattresses, toilet paper and TVs.

And for many, it's a day to catch up on some of these –

ELLIE:  Labor Day? I got this.
