Sh**head finds a new home!
Thursday, December 18, 2008

A few months back I blogged about a strange thing I'd bought for some strange reason:

Yeah, I'm not sure why this guy caught my eye at World Market, but he sure as heck did. And why? What an awful, un-Zen-like face! What was I thinking?
Well, after I blogged about him, a reader and now-friend emailed me, saying we should name him "Sh**head" because he looks as if he's grimacing on the toilet. "I love him," she said. I asked her if she wanted him. She said yes. So she came by the house (with a baby blanket!) and picked him up. No papers were signed. This was a gentleman's agreement.

Not two hours later, I got this from her via email:


Yep, Sh**head getting his first bath. I was told he LOVES bubble baths, and that he's fitting in very well with his two, new human siblings.

Oh...now this just makes me all warm and fuzzy. And just in time for Christmas!

You probably didn't know this, but Sh**thead's father (whose name was Shåtheäd before they anglicized it to Sh**thead) made a cameo appearance in Ingmar Bergman's Wild Strawberries (1957). Here is a still from the scene where he appears in the film.

How in the hell did you know about that specific scene? You're incredible, Gonzalo! And, yes, I think they definitely are kin.

As Sh*thead's new mother, I must warn you that I'll fight Shåtheäd tooth and nail if he ever show his sorry head up to claim "his" son.

He's mine now, thanks to Ad, and his Zen state has been restored. I mean, look at the before and after pictures!

I love saying hello to him each time I enter my front door, where he proudly guards the house. (Don't tell that to my dog, who thinks he guards the house! He'll piss on him. And then what would he be? P*ss 'n Sh*thead?)

'Course, now, you realize that I only gained custody of Sh*thead after I bought a bunch of Ad's books and had him sign them for my friends and family (as you all should do)! Small price to pay for my squeaky-clean pride & joy.

I love him so much! *Sniff*

I'm signing this Anonymously so no one can track Sh*thead down and steal him like a baby Jesus from a manger (sans tracking device).

Merry Christmas to all!

Okay, guys....where on my keyboard do I find the umlauts and other sundry foreign-language punctuation?
