Hello there. I'm Seville and WELCOME to my new home improvement show, Home Improvements with Seville.
Today I'm gonna show you how to panel a wall.
Now you might be wondering why I, Seville the Cat, am interested in panelling walls and truth be told, I was kinda wondering 'bout that myself, especially when I discovered just how hard wall panelling is to do.
Did you know that if you're a cat without opposable thumbs, you need to use both front paws to hold the hammer while hammering?
Did you know that when you use both front paws to hold a hammer while hammering, you have to balance on your two back paws?
Did you know that balancing on your two back paws while hammering with a hammer with your two front paws is super hard to do? Did you? DID YOU? I do. NOW. MOUSES!
One moment I was doing the ol' balancing act on my two rear paws while hammering away with the hammer and the next moment? Why I was down on my tail, and there was a hammer flying - no, soaring - through the air like it had grown wings or something.
And let me tell you, my friends, what goes up must always come down. MOUSES!
Luckily for me, the peep didn't really need that ol' china mug anyway. She still has the other ones in the set. Those others were meant to be back-ups, I do believe. Good thinking on the peep's part when she ordered four of 'em, way back when.
And it's not like it was one of my water or food dishes or anything actually important. MOUSES!
But speaking of tails, I have a word of advice. Well technically, I have more than one word but nevertheless... Never let your tail drift between the hammer and what you are hammering. MOUSES!
Now back to the panelling of the walls.
Why, you might ask. Why would a cat like me wanna panel the walls of his office? Well I'll tell you why, for sure.
Nerissa's Life, the blog, has had the good fortune to be named as a FINALIST for BEST HUMOR BLOG in the 2016 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging & Social Media Awards. This is a great honour, for sure. One of the greatest honours, in fact, that can be bestowed upon a cat. Or a dog. Or even a rat!
To be one of the four finalists this year... WOW. Let's just say, I've been pretty nipped up since I heard on Tuesday and truth be told, there's still more nipping to do. MOUSES!
And I'm in such good company. Amazing company. My good pal Erin from Erin the Cat (Princess) - she's a princess, you know, Katie & Waffles from GLOGIRLY and MK & BC from Momma Kat and Bear Cat are all finalists, too!!! All such funny blogs. Stiff competition, for sure. Just about the stiffest I could ever have imagined.
But I know, you're asking yourselves, Why the mouses is Seville not getting to his point and more importantly, WHAT the mouses does all this has to do with panelling walls and a home improvement show?
Very good questions, indeed.
So here's the thing. It turns out that the four finalists were chosen, and the winner will be chosen, by a panel of judges. A panel of judges. A PANEL, my friends, of judges. You see where I'm going here, right?
Clearly, the judging of this here award involves panels and panelling so you can imagine how distraught I was to discover that I have no panelling at all. I, Seville the Cat, am panel-less!
Well I was panel-less until I started my new home improvement show and prepared for this episode on panelling.
Well actually... Technically... If you really wanna to get down to the nitty-gritty of things... I still kinda am panel-less on account of this panelling thing being way harder than I thought it would be. MOUSES!
Excuse me for a mo.
PEEPERS... I need another bag of ice for my tail! The stuff you gave me before has all gone and melted on me.
Like literally on me. Literally. My fur is all wet from the melted ice and everything. MOUSES!
Anyway, the plan is that once I get these panels up, I'll need to find me some judges and then figure out a way to incorporate 'em into the panelling. We'll do that in episode two.
Episode three of Home Improvements with Seville will discuss the need of a good supply of ice when doing home improvements with hammers. Especially when using those hammers while nipped. MOUSES!
