Actually, most of the time, Gary assigns me DR's to do.

I really don't have a lot of time to review much these days and, being on the site for as long as I have, I'm pretty set on products. I have a two drawer filing cabinet full of toys I almost never have time to use. I'm even thinking about putting some stuff up on EdenClassifieds.

Occasionally a toy come through I really want to try out. I usually make sure at least one or two other reviewers get it before I assign it to myself.

Hmmmm - I have a lot of movies. I'd say some of my top favorites are A Clockwork Orange, Aliens, Vampire Circus, Audition, Die Hard, any of the James Bond movies with Sean Connery or Roger Moore, to name a few

Video games are tougher - I love Spyro, and Call of Cthulhu


And yours, Stormy?

Sphere...I haven't seen that. I might have to check it out; the info on IMDB looks nifty.

Never been a Playstation fan, but I hear the FF series is pretty badass.

This one is for JR and Sammi since you both have animals; working in an animal ER I hear lots of stories about pets from owners, whether its a bit embarrassing (how the dog ate underwear-mine has done that one) or got into something they shouldn't have, or as owners reflect on one of their favorite moments in their pets life. What is one of the funniest things your cat or dog has done? And over all the years what is the one thing that has melted your heart and stuck with you the most?

Stormy do you have any plans to get a pet other than a plant and if so do you know what you want or if you'll adopt from a shelter or buy from a pet store?

gawd...Fidget. He is such a trip! He's a bit "special" - as in, his father and uncle were the same cat. He plays fetch with milk rings, whether I want to play or not. He gets all up in my grill (I was working when I snapped that pic shown). His favorite food/toy is dried shredded squid from the Asian market. He constantly blurs the line between food and toys.

Dip is...Dip. He LOVES to get spanked, have his tail pulled/tugged, fur rubbed backwards - preferably all at the same time. He wouldn't leave the sink alone, so I had to get him a pet fountain.

This moment is when I knew Fidget adopted me:

We want another cat, but right now we don't have a place to put a little box that isn't out in the open and I just don't get down like that. Once we move to a new place/unit, we'll probably start talking about when to get one.

We've both had torties in the past and those are my favorites, but we'll probably end up going in a completely different direction. We'll adopt from a local shelter or off the internet; we don't believe in supporting pet stores that sell puppies and cats.

We also have a dream of owning a bearded dragon that we would inevitably pick up at our local Reptile Expo that happens once a year. We aren't ready to invest in that undertaking just yet.

Oh and I forgot to mention, there is one really big exception to the no pets/no breeder rule: a Savannah or a Bengal. If I were to find one at a really good price that was healthy, I'd have a very difficult time passing it up.

My cat is half tortie half tabby, her legs and face are tabby while her back is tortie with the attitude to match. I adopted her as a kitten, she was part of a litter that was dropped off with momma cat at my work because momma cat was very sick and had a ranging infection of her mammary glands with open abscesses, animal control let a co-worker foster momma and adopt out the kittens due to shelter crowding. She has a whole bedroom to herself at our house, so the litter box gets tucked away in the closet. I hear you on having to have a place to keep it, my issue is my dogs like to help keep it clean if it's not tucked away.

A bearding dragon would be cool. My partner really wants a snake but I am a little hesitant to own and care for a reptile, we have a box turtle which is pretty easy to care for, but it will be a while before a snake comes into the house.

Aw, she sounds pretty! I had a box turtle when I was a kid. Man, did that thing stink up the place! I wasn't great at keeping up with changing the bedding and the water for him.

When I had a dog and cats in the same space, he liked to munch a few "tootsie rolls" himself. Which he then puked up on my carpet - litter and all - while I was having dinner with a date two feet away.

My questions go out to all three of you... When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you "grew up"? And do you ever get any slack from friends and/or family when they find out that you work for Eden? Thanks! xoxo

Hmmm - with our first dog, it was always funny in the winter. It'd snow, and we'd make snowballs. She loved to fetch, but toss the snowball and it'd land in the snow, and she totally could never figure out where the ball went

Funny now, but not at the time: two years ago, it was brutally cold, so we decided to leave the dogs inside, with no supervision. My yellow lab is the older one (he's almost 6 now), and he's pretty much a "you're not looking, I'll hop up on the couch now" dog. That is something funny about him - he really sleeps hard on that couch, and sometimes we'll hear him fall off .

Anyhow, the younger one is kind of fidgity (he's almost 5), but I thought they'd be ok. The first day - no problems. The second day - no problems. The third...well, I came home, and the yellow lab was lying on the couch, looking at me like, "I didn't do it." The black lab was cringing. He ate my remote (into about 400 pieces), the Lego Harry Potter toys, the cord to the curio cabinet, the curtain ties, a pillow, and on top of that he managed to make confetti out of a 64 page music book. I think he got bored

The one thing that's stuck with me the most was with our last dog. When she was old, she was completely blind and deaf, and I think she'd lost her sense of smell. We used to leave her in all the time, and I think she could "feel" when the door slammed. I was actually home and sitting on the couch, and she had no idea I was there - she just walked up and hopped onto the couch - into my lap! (This was an 80 pound catahoula/husky). The look on her face was completely priceless

I wanted to be a dancer, an artist, and an author at one point. Still working on the author one

My husband never gave me any slack about it - we discussed it beforehand

We call them "kitty truffles" in our house and the dogs sure love them, lol, we have had luck with using baby gates to keep the dogs out of the litter box but our lab figured out he could jump them pretty easy. He comes out with a litter crusted nose and you can tell what he's been up too, then its a few days of shampooing carpets thanks to the after effects of his treat.

Our turtle lives outside in a turtle garden/pen for the summer so it's pretty easy up keep

I wanted to be an astronaut/stand-up comedian.

There's really no chance of the astronaut thing. The stand-up comedy...it's a work in process. There are a couple of comedy clubs down here...someday.

My friends don't give me any slack...if anything, they're actively to passively interested.

Yeah, the lab figured out every entrance into the litter box and I was just not having it. So I "gifted" the entire lot - cats and dog - to a friend of mine.

I wanted to be an English teacher at either a middle school or high school level. Or a veterinarian. I ended up going into business administration as a means of necessity.

Here's the funny thing about Eden and IRL peeps I know - no one has ever asked!!! And my closest friend is a former employee so we gab about the new stuff that's going on and what not.

I do have some plans actually. We are getting everyone bowling kits for their birthday/Yule (Christmas). 'Cause we are so sophisticated and stuff! So I am getting a nifty Caribbean Blue ball and bag with matching shoes and towel. Then we go bowling...lots of bowling.

Zombies make for good reading especially since you, in fact, have an abundance of eyes for doing such things! So glad to hear you are feeling better but up the roughage cause they can get irritated again. Your Mom (or Gramma) was right veggies do make you poop! jus' sayin'

Brown eyes are rather nice, I happen to own a pair myself though I have a thing for hazel blue/green or blue eyes (yes I AM staring at you Stormy!).

School is cool I think we should always be planning on learning something more all through our lives.

...and AWWWWWWWWWWW she loved your cooking! When do we get to approve of...I mean meet this sweet young thing....

MMMhmmmm I suspected the two in the back of your head...they install them when you go to have the baby. They are damn necessary and freak out my son every time he thinks he is getting away with doing something behind me and I tell him to stop. I love the greenish blue teal as well it's just brighter and more cheerful!
LOL I tend to read my kids books before they finish them and then I can't say anything cause they get mad if I spoiler them.

WOW how lucky! We went for a few years without needing drops with the cat but then got a kitten and BLAMMO fleas everywhere. One does of interrupter drops and they are gone thank goodness!

I hear that! I love listening to the kids learning to talk...they say the damnedest things!

Oh that is awesome!!! Bowling is a lot of fun and the wee one will enjoy it. All the lights and sounds...

Mine was a swirled purple, blue, green, and pink. Ten pounds. Had everything, too. I always had a great time, even if I was bowling by myself.

It's so funny how those work, isn't it? My kids can never figure out how I know what they're doing. One time I told my daughter I had them and she lifted my hair, but she couldn't see them

I love how kids can be so direct - they totally don't care when they're young. Sometimes it's embarrassing, though - it used to make me think of those chewy Granola commercials . I am finding, though, that my Mother can be worse lol.
