Cuddly, cuddly, all mine! :)

There are some charming people who belong to the small world of mine. Soft and cute and definitely adorable, they are more than dolls to me. I thought I should introduce them to you. Shall we begin?


Let’s meet the big bro first! Big man Bozzo, Bozzo the Bear! Bozzo is the oldest of the lot and supposedly, the most mature and sober of them all! And that shows up most vividly in his large, chubby face! This chap loves, ‘simply loves’ food and Ahem, I assume that is quite obvious! Bozzo has always remained the man of few words, and is often feared (and disliked by one particular person, whom I shall name later) for that particularly ‘smug’ expression on his face. Once, this fellow caught sight of a woman who got her hair dyed pink, and pink being his favourite colour, was desperate to have his ears coloured as well! His friends tried hard to convince him, but since our dear Bozzo had his mind set, got one of his ears dyed pink and added a dash of blue as well, to look Yo!


Next in line is the absolutely feline, feminine, beauty queen. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I request you to please put your hands together to welcome the gorgeous damsel, the sweet pussy cat, Pooshy! Pooshy is definitely not someone whom you can take your eyes off easily. She will hold you with her smart gaze and of course with that erect and professional pose of hers, she may very well be the perfect model for all your cameras! Having said that, I ought to tell you what Pooshy treasures most. Well, yes, it is her bushy, bushy tail that she prides herself for and as expected, quite a lot of effort goes into maintaining her prized asset. Ah, I suppose you can all see the tail, can’t you? She actually wouldn’t let me go without ensuring that it appeared in her solo picture!


And then I would love to introduce this pretty faced, sweetie, cutie pie of mine, the child with the golden curls, Pinky! Pinky is the most obedient child you could get and she sweetly agreed to sit next to my telephone, to take care of calls whenever I am not around. Pinky’s golden curls are, to put it most simply, neighbours’ envy and owners’ pride! I got her home, falling for that innocent smile of hers and of course for those curls! She insisted that she wanted to display her curls for the picture and here they are! She and Pooshy are thick friends and Pooshy’s pink ribbon was Pinky’s gift for Pooshy’s birthday!


Ah, what moment is more perfect than this, to introduce the Mr.Romeo of this gang? Adonis, rightly named thus, is the Yo! Man with the guitar. Actually a ted, Adonis gets more than a teeny-weeny bit upset, because he is often mistaken for a lion cub! This chap is one hell of a smart bugger, for he starts plucking the strings, the moment a specimen of the better sex is in sight! Pat him on his head, and he shakes it as if in trance, and strums his guitar to sing the song, “Come on baby, let’s do the trick!” (Uh, really??) And didn’t I tell you, there is someone who isn’t too fond of Bozzo? It’s no one else but Adonis, for he often finds female teds attracted to Bozzo for his serious nature! Of late I suspect, Adonis has set his eyes on Pinky and starts his “Come on baby..” the moment she appears. He is however a little wary of Pooshy, and calls her the ‘no-nonsense’ babe and no wonder I see Pooshy around, whenever Pinky enters Adonis’ room! :P


Last but definitely not the least, let’s say hi to Jojo, the Jumbo! Jojo, is so, so innocent and naïve, I can’t tell you, that he often is made the baby of the gang. Jojo has great trouble with his nose that half the time he struggles to balance the rest of his body against his nose! Bozzo is particularly very concerned about Jojo that he keeps dropping a word or two of advice to the most sincere listener he could get! Pinky loves Jojo’s tennis ball tail and keeps playing with it affectionately, much to Jojo’s dismay! Shy that he is, compliments make his ears go pink! (literally!) I have often seen Pooshy comparing her creamy fur with Jojo’s pure white and sighing deeply, “Baah, Jojo! You are the first jumbo that I have seen with such lovely white coat. You are soooo cute!” and Jojo actually hides his eyes beneath his fur! :)

And finally, I tried hard and successfully brought them all together for one common snap.


Trust me, this picture is worth a million dollars! :)

Chez said...

I'm wondering... Why is that women are so obsessive about soft toys?? I've got a flatmate, who is so Winnie-the-poo-ish!!

Manoj said...

Yikes. Dolls. Runnnnnnn....

Manoj said...

And whats with the "all mine?"

heyram said...

shouldn't ur blog title be Thought Palette...bcoz Pallette (with 2 l's) means paddle or a plate.correct me if i'm wrong.

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Vani, hehe..I think we should get them to meet when you come down! :p

Sriram, hi! been long...thanks! :)

Heyram, I am not too fond of the barbie collection..I would rather spend the money on stuffed toys..Meanwhile this thing about 'pallette', I wonder whether such a word exists at all!(I don't think it means plate or paddle!)..Like I had mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I somehow liked the symmetrical look of the word, rather than 'palette'..Silly, it may sound, but it's a random thing that was done, just like, calling connections, connexions! and of course a small consciously done reminder for myself - that I can make lots of mistakes! :)

Chez, there is very little to wonder in this..to each, what they wish..Can you tell me why men are so obsessed with techy stuff or cars or sports?? It's just there and that's it about it!

Manoj, I thought it was very clearly understood thro' the post that all these stuffed toys are mine..and I had clicked their pics with my digi cam..

MrGonSings said...

That looks like a bunch of fellows you just wouldn't want to mess up with... ha, ha, ha! ;)

Manoj said...

I know. I know. It wasn't a question. It was so kiddish and i had to mention it.

Anupama Viswanathan said...

MrG, Hahaha!! Truly! :D

Manoj, I suppose that was meant to be kiddish..if it had been otherwise, then the intent of the post is lost!

Eroteme said...
