MadCattew's Tea Pawty and my Submission to Mango Minstew

I debated endlessly
thewe awe so many faboolous Diva's out thewe and I didn't weally think I qualified, but Mommi convinced me that I would feel howwibull if I missed out on this most auspicious event.
Aftew all, Mango Minstew is THE Event of the yeaw.

so hewe goes.

I suppose, I am a Diva of sowts
I pwefew going to the beach  wif an On toow Ahwge, wif my fuws pwotected fwom the bwootal sun

I always weaw coo toowe

whenevew I twavel I take along a few necessities

and I love to sleep in nice hotel wooms

when I wake up in the mowning on my twavels, I pwefew an Al Fwesco Bweakfast

and what Diva doesn't like to be sowwouunded by handsome boyz..these awe just some of my wondewful fwiends who happen to be boyz..
(the photogwaphew should have used a wide angle lens to fit all of them in, hehehehe)

I have cewtain weeknesses, like loving to twavel to the souwce to taste the best gelato in the wowld (Wome)

and when I'm home, I pwefew to be hand fed my hooman food wif a fowk

and aftew dinnew , ow in the aftewnoon sometimes, I do love to lounge on the sofa while eating BonBons

now that I look at my pictoowes, I guess I could qualify as a Diva, so I humbly submit my application to Mango Minstew in this categowy

well, I guess all this is pwoof that I am a Diva, but basically a nice , loving one, so hewe's a bunch of smoochie kisses flying out to all of you, even if you don't think I qualify

Now I hope you wemembew that Satuwday is my sissie Gwacie's Biwfday and she is having a spectacoolaw  Madhattew's Tea Pawty!  I told you all about it a few days ago.

You are a true diva! I like a lady who knows what she wants! Have you really been to Wome? I love to travel, but I have never been that far!

Your pal, Pip

Zona said...

Happy birthday to Gracie!!

What a great entry, Asta!!! What a sweet diva you are!


Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Mum says that a Diva knows what she wants and how to get it. I think that applies to you Asta, I bet you just has to look at peoples and put on a cute face and they give you whatever you wants.
The tea party for Gracie wounds very exciting! You even has the white rabbit down in your blog corner.

We will see you again at Gracie's but we just wanted to stop by and check out the Orange Diva. Whenever we see something orange we always thinks of you, since we know it is your favorite color.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

You are totally a diva! And exactly why there was NO WAY Abby could qualify as a diva (she is shameless, yes, diva, not so much). Great entry!!! Good luck! BTW, my little big sister TaiChi used to get fed off a fork ALL THE TIME!!!

Asta! We caught one of your smoochie kisses! We are blowing one back your way! We like your pictures and especially your header!

The Cat Realm said...

wow - if there is a diva in this world - you'll be it!!! you are the embodiment of diva! (and that first painting on the beach is picasso carrying your umbrella, right?)
and so good to see you at gracie's mad catter party!!! we are just such a party gang, hahahahahaaaaaha

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

BRAVO BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Asta...what a fine entry!!!!! You have such style...such grace...such an appetite for gelatto....

Was that Holy Water in the hotel room on the wall?? Just wonderin'....

Honestly, Asta...it's a fine entry...I'm just jelly that I couldn't enter as a diva, but I GUESS there is only one entry per dog and my stoopid brothers seem to think I'm a saltine.

Sheesch. That one orange dress you have on was from the Minster last year...did you 'member who it was by?

Did you find that pic of you on the diving board? I just hope you didn't have to find all those boy dogz to recreate the photo...

Hey, who is the little foxy wire in that pic with you and Joey? At least I think it's Joey? The little foxy wire looks like a pup or a grown dog who might need to work out a bit more at the gym....makes Joey look hooge...how I do run on...


Your BFF,


As for you staying in one ring and me in with the cheese and crackers, that's total crap.

I plan on popping back and forth.

I'm just sayin'...

Off to Gracie's...

Kiss Kiss....

Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Stopping by to let your mommie and daddie know that you might be home late and that they should leave a light on for you. We are extending the Mad Catter TParty and going through Sunday. I think each party gets better than the last one. I am so glad that you let Asta come and celebrate my special day with me.

Anya said...

Oh..oh .. Asta

your Mommy is very creative :-)
We love it .....

Have a wonderful peaceful sunday

Hugs to all

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Asta...it's been a long day here already. So Mumsie was cooking. Do I need to go on? She insisted on making a BECK A MILL sauce. OK...you know all bout those, don't ya? Well, as she was wire whisking the flour into the butter, (did I mention she didn't measure EITHER OF THEM????) well, the ROUEEE or whatever ya call it congealed into this hoooooge spaetzel. All up inside the wire whisk. Speaking of wiry whisks, I'm thinkin' of whisking Scruffy with it, but that's another comment. So...she has this like GLOB. So she hums and giggles and adds more skim milk (oh the horror) and proceeds to BEAT the wire whisk on the side of the pan...no she wasn't beating Scruffy with it...she's been nice to him since she saw that stoopid video of the fat, clean wire stuck in that pipe.) So the blob fell back in the pot and she stuck a knife in the whisk to get the rest out. She then whisked the hell out of it till it sorta disolved and sorta looked like BECK A MILL sauce. Cept it had lumps....big uglee ones and little funny one. So what's a Mumsie to do? She gets out this screen that she puts over a fryin' pan so stuff doesn't splatter??? Ya know what I mean? Then she dumps the LUMPY BECK A MILL sauce through the screen. (Mind you, she's still humming and giggling...) She then takes a flat spoon and gooshes the sauce through...leaving lotsa uncooked flour-ey lumps.

Then she dumps it back into a pot, adds chesse and dumps it with the noodles and beef into a casserole dish. Still humming and giggling.

It's Daddy's dinner.

He'll love it.

I am appalled.

Chef Lacie who knows that one should just use a hammer on those pesky lumps.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...


And I think Mumsie is a fine cook. I love ketchup.
