Little Penguin...and Thursday Brain Teaser

Hi everybody!

Mommy Penguin here. I just saw Ophrah and she said that we really have to follow up on what our kids are doing online. What with all the sharks out there in the water! And not a moment too soon did I check up on little Penguin to realize the damage already done. Apparently, little Penguin won some sort of nomination in a BAR of all things! Needless to say, I am shocked to my very core. But not enough with that, little Penguin has been on many sites this morning advertising this event and shamelessly promoting such a travesty.
I therfore, encourage all of you not to reward bad behaviour and Refrain!!! from voting for little Penguin on THIS SITE!

Thank you very much, Penguin Mom

ps. I have taken care of little Pneguin and made sure no further promotion escape her!

and now to our fun of the week:

"She was born in 1977 in East Germany. One of 7 siblings, she still managed ot get a good education and left Germany in 1997 to attempt the University in one of the Scandanavian countries. She likes the colour blue, loves languages and is soooooo pretty. Recently, she broke her foot!"

If you know the answer, go HERE!!! and vote for her.

Morning or afternoon,

Great self promotion. But the trick is to get others to promote you. Metaphorically speaking.;)

I always thought it was strange when penguins but clothespins. Now I understand.

Oh, and now that Minka is banned from self-promotion may I add...

...First!

Tucks clothespin up under lampshade...

Doug, the timing is freakish, nothing more.

You are a wise penguin Mom! Really the whole thing is a bit tawdry - something your dear little one should not be exposed to. Now me, I'm a hardened veteran, so go vote for me! "G" - last one down, can't miss me.

 
At 14:58, Blogger Doug said...

Jeez. Can I get one of those?

 
At 15:06, Blogger Minka said...

Brian, why are you offering?

Doug, sorta repetitive aren´t we today?

FF, I´ll take you up on that. Mommy can be too harsh sometimes ;)

G, this is not the place nor the time...nor is it dark in here!

Douglas, what do you want, sweety?

Dear Penguin Mom. Your daughter is beyond redemption.

You just have to deal with it.

Oh gosh. twice yet. I guess I really, really meant that. You better start praying.

 
At 16:52, Blogger brian said...

Ah Minka! You ask "why am I offering?" Please, to win Sar's caption contest is a great honor and the large financial benefit thus accrued...well, as your campaign manager, I would make sure that all those weighty things like, proper banking, would in fact be taken care of for you by a larcenous bunny.

Just cause I love you.:)

You've got it in the bag Monika - best bird on the block.

***Trivia

Is her most recent album Amarantine?

 
At 17:45, Blogger Doug said...

No, wait! I know!

She got a backrub from President Bush on TV!

 
At 17:47, Blogger Doug said...

Oh, no. Now I Have it:

The Line "The problems of two people don't add up to a hill of beans in this crazy mixed-up world" were spoken to her character, Ilsa.

 
At 17:55, Blogger Doug said...

She hates snakes and is the mother of Cain and Abel.

 
At 17:56, Blogger Doug said...

Her son wrote City of God and Confessions.

 
At 17:56, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, *hands him two clothespins* are you alright?!

Kyahgirl, you´ve got that right. So placed your vote yet. I would hate for you to miss such an opportunity of clicking the mouse in such an important manner!

Brian, I have a feeling that you are going to take a 70% fee!

tsduff, thank you so much. let the voting commence! There is nothing more I can do without seeming totally insane :)

Doug, dude! What are ye doing to me, man?!

 
At 18:08, Blogger Mo'a said...

Mommy Penguin, Auntie here, and on the case....poor baby she needs to be sheltered as her wadle is rather slow since the blogging acident.....together we will keep the sharks at bay and her in bay....you know I cought her up at the wee hours of the night....sorry, I am not normally a tatle. Furthermore I cannot condone another blond joke as I will be stomped on by my blonde sisters.....sorry Little Penguin you know that Auntie is doing this for you own good.....I noticed it is almost dinner time in Penguin land so verdi ykkur ad godu, hope the herring is good.

 
At 18:14, Blogger Kyahgirl said...

she doesn't hate snakes! she just about swooned in delight when she looked at my Rainbow boa!

Doug is giving red herrings.

 
At 18:19, Blogger ~ good girl ~ said...

LOL!! Did Penguin Mum really write this post?? Hmm ;-)

Shameless self-promotion is to be greatly admired. I shall hope over now and...Oh bugger. G is here too. Dilemma.

*shhhhhhh...I shall to Sar's and...shhhhhhh...*

Hope the flipper is doing better!!

GG x

 
At 18:48, Blogger brian said...

What beautiful flowers!! Kiss-kiss.

I wouldn't take 70%, I would settle for...

 
At 21:33, Blogger goatman said...

I am amazed that anyone would reference Fritz Perls! Good for you!
Peace

 
At 21:45, Blogger Sar said...

Minka, this post is sensational not to mentional incredibly adorable. Btw, you have to see the cover of GQ, Clive Owen is on the cover and he is looking mighty fine.

G, don't worry I'm following your promotion as well!

 
At 22:15, Blogger RennyBA said...

Mommy Penguin has a really sharp pen - I just had to vote of course:-)

 
At 22:29, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Móa dearest,

i am so grateful for you helping me. Little penh-guin often slippers through my fingers unnoticed, and the more eyes are watching the less chances she will have! I am doing it all for her, of course. She was up late at night with a broken foot and fever...well, I never...

Little Penguin get over here right this minute!

~Penguin Mom

 
At 22:34, Blogger Minka said...

Móa, cheers!

Kyah, yeah that was a treat for teh eyes and the ears!

GG, just go with your instincts;) There is no such thing as right or wrong, there are just consequences of your actions;) Just kidding! Have fun with it! We do too :)

Brian, looks like I am far behind...so I am sorry to tell you, but I can't afford a manager right now :(

goatman, new here? I actually know little about Fritz Perls. I just really like the quote...now that you mention it I might have to do some research . And, look at my manners, WELCOME of course :)

Sar, really. I´ll chekc it right out. Yummy!

rennyba, I am glad that some people know such a thing as loyalty *winks at Móa*

 
At 23:56, Anonymous neva said...

She's a delightful, delicious, and most *welcome* of Snarksters!! also, she seems attracted to tall, dark brooding singers vying for a coveted spot in a newly formed rock band.

and... she loves chocolate.

 
At 00:02, Blogger Minka said...

neva, you are right! very well hinted :)

 
At 02:05, Blogger First Nations said...

i hope your little flapper is feeling better. blogging can be dangerous.

now tell me why doug is rambling on about Enya, Lauren Bacall and St. Monnica?

 
At 02:58, Anonymous cj said...

I love love love your shamless plug. You are very crafty! :) good luck on the caption contest!

 
At 06:27, Anonymous Anonymous said...

really, Monika, this is your most difficult brain teaser so far. so difficult, I admit I tried to use Google for help but the naked ladies came up made me real confused. :-P

 
At 06:29, Anonymous Anonymous said...

no, that wasn't Cooper...

Ariel

 
At 07:07, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Ha, ha, ha, haaa! Mommy Penguin = funny lady!

Ha, ha, ha, haaa! Ariel = funny lady too!

As for the riddle... hmmmmm....

She sent a certain bohemian a delightful postcard from a country called Germany and said postcard still is proudly displayed on the bohemian's fridge and the lil' bohemians knows that their mummy's pretty and beloved friend (WHO NEVER SHOWED UP IN MAY AS WAS HOPED!!!!) was the one who sent it...

YEAH BABY YEAH!

 
At 10:27, Blogger Minka said...

First Nation, to understand what Doug is doing and why...is just not healthy stuff to contemplate. We just ahve to let him play!
But sinc eyou are sorta new here, every Thursday I have a Trivia going on around here, Doug is shamelessly teasing me if it is not up on time. This time I chose teh Brain Teaser to be abou tme, in order to make people vote for me over at Sar´s. yeah, I am sneaky like that. Doug knew perfectly well, but pretended he didn´t. I bet he thought it was funny!

Cj, the same to you :)

ariel, yeah teh first time I tried Minka...it got really voluptuous, so to speak. Yeah, don't do that!

Miz B...yes she did that, but she was also really busy with three adorable nieces who just didnæt want to see he go..so she decided that a meeting with the Bohemian should be when she has not to entertain three little blond angels :)

 
At 11:43, Blogger Doug said...

It was funny to me. You should have your funny-bone checked next time.

 
At 21:39, Blogger Tim Rice said...

Minka, I see you are fiercely protective of your penguin like a true mom.

Afraid though I don't know enough to respond to your Thursday trivia.

Be well! :)

 
At 21:59, Blogger cube said...

You've got to keep an eye on your little penguins!

 
At 09:21, Blogger Minka said...

Tim, The answer to the Thursday Trivia is me!

Cube, yes you have to. But there is such a thing as over-protective!

 
At 10:51, Blogger ariel said...

you!!! had I known...

 
At 21:17, Anonymous neva said...

ONE of us (me) saw a comment on the Snark that referenced a "new horse" going by a certain Penguin's real name.... hmmmm. SOMEONE promised to post pictures of aforementioned "Horse With A Name" later today. *taps foot impatiently* well???

actually, i don't mind waiting... i'm just happy to know you're having a beautiful time. altho' i really WILL be happy to see the pictures if and *when* you post 'em!! you can always put a picture or two up on the Snark, if you were so inclined... in fact, i'm thinking that would make a mighty fine post for tomorrow...or Monday! (just sayin'...) xoxo

 
At 23:53, Blogger Tim Rice said...

Alright, Minka. I'm a dufus. I just wasn't thinking that you would choose yourself. :)

 
At 10:58, Blogger Minka said...

Ariel, did it not come off well?

Neva, I am still in teh ocuntryside. I decided to stay one day longer and spend some time with teh horses. I didn´t get on one, so donæt worry. I am not saying I wasn´t tempted though;)
I am coming back today and posts will be up!

TIm, it wa sjust to promote myself in teh voting contest;) I have no concept of democracy an fair votin :)

 
At 14:22, Anonymous neva said...

i'm SO glad you were able to stay out in the countryside an extra day! and VERY relieved you didn't decide to climb up on a horse (we don't need to worry about you any more than we already do!)

i'll look forward to seeing your new post and pictures *whenever* you get them up! (by the way, i posted a picture i took especially for you, yesterday. it's silly... but then, so am i!) xoxo

 
At 14:50, Blogger Fred said...

I tried to vote for her this morning, but Blogger was being a pain. I'll try again now.

Off I go...

 
At 14:52, Blogger Fred said...

Dangit! I just tried to vote and it told me I already had. Noooooo!

So - if you lose by one vote, it was mine.

 
At 18:04, Blogger windowtomymind said...

Hi Minka,

Sharks in the water, sounds something like me.

Ich hoffe, dass Ihr Fuß Sie zu viel Schmerz nicht gibt. Nehmen Sie Sorge, werde ich Sie auf Ihrem Blog sehen.

 
At 18:32, Blogger Jamie Dawn said...

Of course, I voted for YOU!!
Your caption for the photo is well worth my vote.

That was the easiest brain teaser yet.

 
At 18:43, Blogger Minka said...

Neva, I just got back to town and am gonna blog-travel now. central snark will be first on my list! A picture for me????

Fred, if I do... I know where you live!

Ben, Vielen Dank...ich werde mir auesserste Muehe geben!

Jamie, I always knew you´d know best :)

 
At 20:27, Anonymous Joel said...

ahem...was there not a promise of a picture from your trip to the country? It was your foot that was broken, no? Wanted to make sure it wasn't your hand which might have provided some excuse for not fulfilling the promise...

;-)

 
At 00:43, Anonymous shayna said...

I'm headed to check out your "linkage"... :) :)

 
At 01:15, Blogger David Amulet said...

"One of the Scandanavian countries?" For the geographically challenged American visitors, that's just temptation to sink back into the sad but true aren't-all-Scandanavian-countries-the-same-anyway ignorance ...

-- david

 
At 01:25, Blogger Minka said...

Joel, hit me over the head with it! Der Ton macht die Musik!;)

shayna, that would be nice, but remember to vote for whoever you think is best *winks*

david, david, david *shakes head*
you better get that sorted. Google!

 
At 02:28, Blogger Doug said...

David, I don't appreciate a comment that makes Americans look so ignorant. There's a huge difference among them. Some are frigid and some are just freaking cold.

 
At 02:59, Anonymous Joel said...

Besitz Ihre Füße zum Feuer! (or something like that)

:-)

 
At 03:48, Blogger Sar said...

Where are my manners? Here's my hint for your brain teaser - she's my pretty Icelandic sistah from Germany. And I'm glad she's had a good time in the countryside.

And did you see Clive Owen and his sexy green eyes yet? Dayyyam!

 
At 05:57, Anonymous Anonymous said...

David, geographically challenged is a funny term, I like it, and I'm sure it doesn't apply to you. now will you please go to a blind map and show at each African countries I name? :-P

At 10:39, Blogger actonbell said...

Hi, Minka! I hope your foot is feeling better!
Groovy post:)

 
At 10:54, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, for the sake of our friendship, we are just not going to categorize into which of the two groups you belong ;)

Joel, I have no idea what you are trying to say. The sentence was grammatically correct though!

Sar, yes I did look at the cover. He is very yummy! So, green eyes for you?

Ariel, i couldnæt even do that! I get all 35-36 European ones though;)

Actonbell, It is feeling much better! Thank you. I am waddling around without crutches! Also, thank you guys for supporting my shameless promotions...it has been fun, but it doesn´t seem to have made it all the way. That´ll teach me not to run for office!

 
At 13:02, Anonymous Joel said...

Ok, never claimed to speak the language, now did I? Was trying to say..."holding your feet to the fire!" In other words, holding you accountable for the post you promised.
