The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
The new Muppet movie is here! The new Muppet movie is here!!
To celebrate, both Cats saw the new flick and discuss. Here are some links to other muppet-y goodness discussed herein-
- Jason Segel & Nick Stoller on “Fresh Air”
- Muppet Movie review on “The Disney Blog”
- my personal Oprah’s Muppet connection
and of course, THE FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS!!
If spoilers are generally your thing, you might enjoy Slate’s Spoiler podcast as well – the Muppet Movie is the latest episode if you are so inclined.
And, no, we haven’t unleashed the holiday music. YET.
Before we embark on a two week break (back August 24th!), we thought we’d stir the bubbling cauldron that is the Refillable Mug Controversy and add a pinch of Pooh.
Yes, it’s the “Pooh Sized Debate” courtesy of some favorite blog reads lately and those marvelous interwebz where all is quiet and peaceful, all the time.
And for your browsing pleasure, teh links:
- Disney Kicks Ass – the original “pooh sized debate” blog post

- Corinna Writes schools them
- When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies
- Love Your Body (did you ever read HUES magazine back in the day? I lurved that!)
- The Body Positive
UPDATE: Cat #2 just came across this blog today and I’m digging it! Used to be called “Young, Fat and Fabulous” now gabifresh . Some nice body accepting links on her blogroll as well.
It’s a Those Darn Cats cornucopia of goodness! It’s all here this week!

*Also – please note we will be on hiatus for 2 weeks in August (the weeks of August 10th &17th) – but find us back here on August 24th!
Last week both Cats were out of town, Jennifer in beautiful Hawaii, Lisa in Texas. Cat #2 thought she’d take the mic and ask her very own Disney Dude how she was rating thus far on the “Bridezilla Scale”. She’s sorry she asked. Is it worse to be Disney Bridezilla or a Disney Zombie Princess?
Check out these”Disney Inspired” Fashions –
- Sue Wong “Alice” dresses

OK – Cat#2 is still in a post half marathon semi-coma AND has to go to work soon…. Sooooooo, our show notes are somewhat abbreviated… But hasn’t it been said that a picture is worth a thousand words? Yes? Well, here are a few thousand for you – Enjoy!!
A few other post-marathon weekend resources include:
- The Disney Dudes
- Gordon at “Running to Disney”
- Meghan’s blog
- All About the Mouse (and you can find lots of Team Voice info on the friendly forums there and link to Jonathon’s blog – as well as find other Team Voice bloggers)

Christmas Carol ContestThen email us at email@example.com to cast your vote for the best Christmas Carol…..All votes must be cast by Monday January 5th and the winner will be announced on our January 9th show, episode 91.
C’mon! Everybody is gonna be there!!! Jenn and I thought we would roll in, fashionably late, dahling (no capes!) and bring dessert! Yum! Of course, Cats LOVE cream, so I thought we could dig out my Poppa’s old hand crank ice cream maker and put the kids at the cookout to work after dinner! Doc promises the fireworks out in Passamaquody are going to be fantastic!
My only hope – and I forgot to ask him about this one – is that there is a pre-fireworks recital like I used to see in my Grandparents town of Connersville, Indiana. The Dixon Dance Studio classes would each have a turn at a patriotic interpretive dance of some sort – this was the 70’s people so you can imagine the hair, the leotards and the disco influenced reenactments of the midnight ride of Paul Revere – followed by the world’s oldest Legionnaire (he always seemed to be to me) leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance… Jennifer spent her fancier 4ths – at least as a teen – in Boston, so she’d have more stories about the Pops, REALLY awesome fireworks and Paul Revere…
So, time to pack up – We’ll see YOU there!! Oh, and be kind to your webfooted friends – that duck could be somebodies mother!
