Dahlings, There is no better way to start the week than with a few spa treatments. First, get your quills moisturized. Twice. They bring out your beady eyes.

Second, your dainty paws could use an apricot scrub and peppermint oil massage. Those paws are tiny, and you carry the weight of the Cute World on them. They must be refreshed!

Lastly, and most importantly, I recommend BeautyHedge nose cream, for a supple, come-hither schnozzle. Try it, Dahlings!

schnozzle...resistance to snoorgle is futile.

Lucky Hari. He gets spa treatment while all I get is a Monday.

Hedges don't know how good they have it.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 10:49 AM

Seriously, I want a hedgie now!

"Oh, and last but not least, the cucumber over the eyes, for the lasting longing looks you give your fellow hedgies...they make great hor d'erves too!" (Do hedgehogs eat cucumbers???)

Recipe for hedgehog hors d'oeuvres includes carefully removing ALL prickles first...

But who will do the massage for the hedige? Everyone needs a good massage at the spa...

very cute my head imploded

 |  May 08, 2006 at 11:49 AM

Meg, your comments are AWESOME!! Second only to dear little Hari, who truly deserves the royal treatment. Peppermint and otherwise...

 |  May 08, 2006 at 11:58 AM

OMG - That's utterly beautilicious.

Good grief. I need my snorgoggles.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 12:05 PM

I think I need to borrow the white pup's bifocals, because I thought A thinker said to remove all pickles first, and I'm down with that, since I hate pickles.

I'm not sure of their efficacy as a beauty treatment, though. The acidity might be good for the complexion.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 12:07 PM

LOL @ AuntieMame!!

Is it just me or does anyone else thing that the adorable hedgie looks like he's dressed up to play the virgin mary in the All Hedgie naitivity scene?

 |  May 08, 2006 at 12:27 PM

Holy Mary Hedgehog, Elizabeth, I think you're right!!

Hari looks so tranquil - and yet, most hedgebaths are not without struggle...

I'm not feeling too quick on the draw today re. humorous comments, but I'm mos' def' lovin' this hedge.

Ahhhh! What a cute little face!

Variations on a theme suggested by Elizabeth (weeeeeeeeeeee, I'm going to hell!!!)

"And the webmaster came in unto him, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Broadband is with thee: blessed art thou among hedgies.
And the webmaster said unto him, Fear not, Hari: for thou hast found favour with Meg.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive a website, and bring forth a cult, and shalt call its name CuteOverload."

that hog looks smart

also v. low BEF for a hog... the irises are *sigh* hazel

 |  May 08, 2006 at 01:17 PM

And for penance you shall do 20 Hail Hedgies and apologize to Brother Theo for commiting the first post sin.... again....

 |  May 08, 2006 at 01:57 PM

Tony J, you just sent me into a coughing fit lmao!! I've been sick at home for a week and this place has *tewtelly* saved my sanity.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:04 PM

The danger, of course, of having your hedgehog in with your towels is that horrible day when you can't find your loofah and you're sooooo laaaaazy and he's riiiiiight there...

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:09 PM

pewsonawly, I think Hari is in the preparatory stage to become a "hedgie burrito" (cf. April 25, 2006 'kitten push-up' post).

/sorry no linky, I can't get the permalink to show...

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:10 PM

Yea, verily Tony!

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:23 PM

M-, LoL! Why is everyone on here inexplicably funny?

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:30 PM

Hallo everyone, I'm Amie.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:33 PM

I'd gladly give hedgie a tummy massage. Not a back massage, though.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:36 PM

Hedgehogs are the BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO GO GO EMO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like hedgie's had his quills highlighted too, for that chic streaked look.

BTW, I could swear there was a whole section on the CO main page yesterday written by Theo, summarizing the best posts from last week. Did I imagine that??

 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:47 PM

She must be the daintiest darlingest hedgie possible!!

I saw it too, Dustbunny. I seem to remember a birdie in a towel.

little miao
 |  May 08, 2006 at 02:50 PM

Dustbunny & Little Miao -- Huh. I missed it completely. I did write something up, and Meg was doing some re-formatting; I just figured she ran out of time before it wasn't Sunday anymore.

[time passes] ...OK, I just checked on it in the TypePad management screens (took forEVER to load! yeesh), and it it looks like the post did get prettied up with photos & colors & an intro by Meg. It's also been re-titled "The Sunday Wrap-up: 5/1 to 5/7" sooooo I'm guessing it may show up NEXT Sunday, presumably along with a new one.

Meg? Weigh in?

 |  May 08, 2006 at 03:09 PM

No, no, Theo. What happened was exactly what you predicted: with three comments, that post went into a recursive meta-feedback comment loop, or whatever you said. It disappeared into the infinity of CO, only to randomly reappear (sometimes) as one of the navigation links at the top of the page, only to disappear when you looked for it again. Three comments were just too much--they tipped the balance.

What a cute little guy. That reminds me, my little boy has a report to do on a book called "Hedgie's Surprise" by Jan Brett that we need to do tonite. Just showed him this pic and he goes "yaaaaaaawwwwwwww"! He's addicted to CO, too.

 |  May 08, 2006 at 04:47 PM

So do we get to see them or do we have to wait till next Sunday?

 |  May 08, 2006 at 04:48 PM

"After a day-long visit to her favorite Barb-er Shop, Hari is living proof that a detailed beauty regimen is worth the trouble! Beginining with a hedge trim, she continues with a frost, eye sparkle treatment and full body wrap, to prolong that shapely hedgie-sillhouette. And, lo, she emerges - spikey and adorable!"

 |  May 08, 2006 at 06:19 PM

But who will do the massage for the hedige? Everyone needs a good massage at the spa M-, maybe itll be an old carpenter, they have rough hands

A) what the heck is with emo rangers?!
B) no-one imagined that post and im kind of responsable for the timeloop majigger, [as if that could actually happen, that sounds as stupid as "the worlds going to end in 2000 because the computers will set it to the begining of time" thing]

Thinker - U R FNY. At least space & time as we know it weren't sucked in right along with it.
It's the little things.
