Mini-Me Olympics

In memory of sweet Bridget of Dip Dip and The Bridge many of the mini-mes that her mum made are entering into the Mini Olympics (absolutely nothing to do with the debacle spectacular taking place elsewhere!)


It is being organised by Frankie and Ernie, who, I am ashamed to say, I don't know!! Because of that oversight I didn't get the memo about where to send Mr W. Eevil so that he could take part!

So here he is arriving somewhere with snow in the hopes that it is within the vicinity! I told him when he gets to Siberia, turn right at Bratsk, left at Ulan Bator and then keep going. *sniggers*

Here he is, ready to go!

Here he is in the big race!

Do you think he wins?

Oooops!

Actually, it turns out that bloke he was racing was just nipping out to pick up the papers and some yak milk in downtown Vladivostok!

Tehehehe!! Better luck next time little buddy!


NB. Next Friday is a special day!! It is Valentine's Day :) Do you think I am going to the Valentine's Ball? If so, do you think I have a date? I am saying nothing *taps nose* but watch this space!!

NB again. Please forgive lack of blogging and visiting once again! The silly Staff who as you know is a techno-idiot has been trying to get her head round Photoshop Elements 12.  Have to say it has not been a pleasant experience for any of us! The results (above) were only achieved after many hours of furrowed brows and some, frankly, shocking HBO language!


Have a great (rest of the) weekend! xox

We hope Mini-Austin didn't break anything with that tumble!

Annie Bear said...

Your Staff did great with the Photoshop! That was so funny about the yak milk, MOL! (Mini-Me probably would be better off in Siberia than the debacle.)

Looking forward to hearing more about your Valentine's Day plans.

That was some great sliding Mini Austin!

My human has full Photoshop, but she says that Photoshop Elements does all the important stuff - and can be just as maddening!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Yikes! That was quite the tumble!

Mommy has Elements 9 and it pretty much drove her nuts trying to figure it out. Guess it shows from our lack of Photoshopped pictures on our blog, huh?

The Swiss Cats said...

Great sliding Mini Austin ! We hope you didn't break anything ! Mum has Photoshop Elements on the computer at school, but she spends already so many time in helping us to write our posts that there is no time left to dig into Photoshop and make the iPhone pictures better ! Purrs

Constance Marie said...

Great effort!! Good to see you back!!

Molly The Wally said...

Wow mini Austin is one brave kitty. Bravo little one on a sterling effort. Well cool. Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
Best wishes Molly

Yikes Austin - your mini-me looks FIERCE on the slopes! As for you and Valentine's Day I have a feeling a handsome mancat like you MUST have some beautiful ladycat dangling by a string in line for a HOT DATE on the occasion! You'd best rest up today...you're gonna need all the energy you can muster!

Hugs, Sammy

Marg said...

Wow, what a good skier you are. Too bad you took a flip, you cute Mini-me. You are almost as cute as Austin. Can't wait to see who your big date is for the Valentine's dance. Take care.

clowiescorner said...

My cats say you were very wise to send mini-you out in the cold, while you stayed warm and dry.

Alice Marie said...

That Mini-me is a pretty good skiier! *giggle* My Mum wouldn't even attempt to create anything like that...HBO language or not! Have fun on Valentine's day!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope you didn't break a claw when you tumbled Austin.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Katie Isabella said...

Mini Austin is worthy of Mini Katie. Hm..

Madi and Mom said...

Bravo you pawticipated exactly where you were supposed to with the mini Olympics. On your blog. the event is not organized just at will! Your skill on the slopes is purrfection in motion. Cats Rule the slopes
Hugs madi your bfff

Misaki @ misadventuresofMisaki said...

Glad your mini me is joining in the fun :-)

Kitties Blue said...

Mom says thanks for the good laugh with sublime. So would your mom not recommend ours getting photoshop? She keeps trying to use the free programs and gets so frustrated with those. Anyway…we have been following Molly's folly (pretty good alliteration don't you think) at the Olympics. Hope she survives. We know you are attending the dance with a date, and we can't wait to see you there. Purrs and paw-pats, Mauricio, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Jo

Mini Olympics look like so much fun! Me-Ommmmm

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oops. You shouldn't have to hear HBO language, Austin. It burns the ears. But your staff did a good job.

Meg & Quill said...

Mini Me wins gold!!!

Oui Oui said...

Mini Me should win for cuteness! We think you did a good job on the GIF. Those things are easy to drop the photos in, and also very tricky at the same time. (More tricky than not, we'd say.)

Mollie said...

Wow Austin, youz pretty good at that BOL. Hope you had a super weekend xxoxxx

Hilary said...

look at those slopes.. woo hoooo

I am totally photoshop inept!

Vanessa Morgan said...

I'm loving these mini-olympics. This one in particular is very cute. I hope your mini-me didn't hurt himself :-) Have a lovely week.

LP said...

Your Mama is far more clever than ours! Ours can barely download a photo without indulging in HBO language. She is a simpleton but serves good food so we stay.

the critters in the cottage xo

Jackie Bouchard said...

Heehee. Too funny. Those photos make it look like you're a photoshopping expert to me!

The Cat From Hell said...

Your Mom is doing a great job with the photoshopping! My Mommy is impressed!!!
Kisses
Nellie

Shelly Mac said...

The mini me Olympics are very cute. We hope your mini me did not get hurt! Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

We know about the staff being all a kerfluffle over tech-photo stuff. Dad went fur the Print shop plus (he says he is terminally cheap, err,we agree but anyhoo)He is now able to do one or two things but says he has no time.
A likely story
See you at the ball my furend

Clooney said...

Hope that your Mini-Me is still intact after that spill on the powder! We got a real kick out of theese one, fab post!

Ann Staub said...

I think your peep did a good job with the PS stuff! I know how she feels though. I am trying to get the hang of it too. I've only had mine for a few months. Hope Mini Me was able to get his yak milk!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! He’s gonna get a BIIIG deduction for that tumble.

Kjelle Bus said...

I see that your Mini-Me is as good on the skie´s as me *mol*

XOXO
