There are no monkeys here

Hey y'all, been a while since I posted I know...too much going on and barely keeping up with my own blog.  However, I keep getting inquiries about whether I'm hanging out with monkeys in Thailand.  Short answer is no.  Because a) there are very few monkeys in Thailand (I'll grant you a few elusive gibbons, perhaps) and b) I don't hang out with monkeys, unless it's Georges and then only if he's chaperoned.  There is some kind of animal that hoots in the backyard, but I am pretty sure it's a frog.

However, just to keep you all appeased, here is a link to the creepiest little monkey doll EVER.

THAT DOLL IS GOING TO HAUNT MY DREAMS! What in the word?! That is too creepy to even exist. Little monkey doll is too lifelike! Georges and his ilk are just right.

That doll looked like something out of "Planet of the Apes". I loved those movies as a kid. About 10 years ago I rented the original movie and showed it to my kids. We all laughed our heads off. It started with Charlton Heston smoked a cigar in the space ship pontificating the destiny of man. When they arrived on the planet, they ran about 20 feet to avoid having a bolder hit them. These big macho men all collapsed, breathing very hard. My kids had run 10 miles in cross country that day, and just laughed their heads off. It went downhill from there. Somethings are best remembered from afar.

OMG- that doll is terrifying. It's like these marzipan babies my aunt was obsessed with: creepy little realistic pink babies made out of almond paste that would fit in the palm of your hand. She used to send me pictures of them because she thought it was funny they freaked me out so much.
I'm gonna need an acid eye wash to get that image off my corneas.
