Still kickin!

Wow! I can't believe it's been over a year since I posted anything here! I guess I really fell off of the blog ever since I got a facebook page. There are a lot of pictures though, so I think I will post them here sometime soon, with a little more description than I was able to give in my facebook album.

There's been a lot that's happened in the past year, though sadly I haven't been able to travel nearly as much as I'd like. I did finally make my way home to Jesus, which is just lovely, except that even with Ronit gone I still have to fear for my life because of the big, scary dogs. So I have been spending a lot of time in other people's houses.

In the summer, I am going to a special class to learn about icon painting with my friend Nancy. We'll learn how to mix our own paints with eggs, just like all the famous dead artists, and use real gold and everything. It sounds really cool, and they're not even going to charge me 'cause I'm so small. Sometimes it's really good to be a little guy. I'll be sure to take lots of photos and share them with everyone!

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately, mates. I haven't been travelling nearly as much as I'd like, but have been keeping busy nevertheless. My therapist suggested that art classes might be a good form of therapy, so I recently started doing ceramics. It's been fun, but I might try painting next - wet clay really mats my fur something awful.

Pictures from the trip to Vegas!

Photos from Vegas are here! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take any pictures at the awesome stripclub I went to, as Laura and Ronit had the camera and thought it would be more fun to see some silly circus. There are lots of other good photos though, go take a look! And don't worry, I came out of it unscathed - I think the assassination attempts are mostly out of habit anymore.

Photos from Deutchland!

And again, it's been a terribly long time since I've updated this blog. The kidnapping in Rio really affected me far more than I realized at first. There've been a lot of therapists, but now I feel like I've really worked through the trauma and am in a better place. And speaking of better places - I haven't just been moping about and getting liquored up, though I'll admit to a fair bit of that. I've been travelling! Finally, I can truly call myself the Wandering Wombat.

First, I went to Germany! My good friend Laura is such the world traveller. She spent a whole year in Germany once, though it is popularly believed that she had dropped off the face of the planet during that time. For this trip, we visited two of her friends, lovely ladies both of them.

See the pictures here!

(Don't ask about the eartag, by the way. I was still a bit traumatized from Rio and those fashion fads can be so tempting... besides, how many of you wore scrunch socks in the eighties? Neon green leggings? Ha!)

Laura also took me to Vegas with her charming Big Apple buddy Caroline, but I haven't seen hide nor hair of those photos. Guess I need to email her.. It's been a while since we chatted anyway, perhaps I should invite her over for a spot of tea.

Wombat Returns!

Well friends, it's been a long time, but the Wombat is back. It's been a hell of a year, let me tell you.

It all started when a friend invited me to accompany him on a vacation to Rio de Janeiro. We actually had a lovely time, until the very last day. We were on the beach at Ipanema, just hours away from leaving, and I was riding in Colin's backpack when all of a sudden two guys did a tag-team number on my buddy and kidnapped me!

I can't go into the details, but it took *months* and several spectacularly failed escape attempts before I made it back to the United States.

I'll write more later, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm here!

A more successful shopping trip

I have continued to be consumed by a burning desire to wear clothes, even though the weather is becoming warmer by the day. It must come from living with humans. Having given up on people stores, I went to a place more suited to a bloke of my stature. Yes, the pet store.

They had a surprisingly vast array of clothing choices. I had my eye on a dashing wool peacoat and some delightfully frilly dresses, but the sweaters seemed to fit me the best.

This one wasn't bad, though it did make my torso look a tad overlarge. Still, a reasonably good fit, and I did enjoy the way the blues and greens complimented the dusky chocolate richness of my fur.

Ahh, the pink sweater. Such a darling piece, and so soft. It's a terrible shame it was too long. Wearing it made me feel so pretty and sweet, I almost wanted to dance around the store singing songs from musicals.

Who doesn't love argyle? Don't you think it makes me look intellectual? It wasn't a bad fit, either. This stayed in my shopping cart until I found...

...this, the most fantastic and wonderful of wombat garments! The Little Red Sweater, as I have come to think of it. The color, the collar, the ribbing, the stripe, the obvious high quality of fabrication - everything a wombat could want in a sweater. Next to this, the argyle is just a cheap, pallid, tasteless rag. Oh, Little Red Sweater, joy of my life! There's nothing like finding the perfect garment while on a shopping quest.

At the store, I also met a lovely, sultry lady with a fantastic figure who was just the right size. I was starting to believe in things like fate and love at first sight, until..

... she introduced me to her boyfriend. Alas, my hopes for love with a similarly-sized female were dashed just as they started to take root. Well, at least he was a nice fellow and very friendly, and I ended the day with two new friends who don't make me feel like a pygmy among giants.
