Meet Fernie!

The bitter barn is a sad and lonely place to be. Which is why Indigo has been sent there to think about what it's done. In the meantime, I needed something quick, cute, and fun to restore the faith.

Enter Fernie!

It's short for Ferdinand. Hubster named him. It's better than Boba Fett, which is what he'd name our first kid if I let him.

I just love him! Isn't he cute? But ya gotta wonder, what does a Spherey Pod do all day? So I grabbed my cam and skulked about the corners to shoot this exclusive "Fernie: A Day in the Life" expose. Let's take a look, shall we?

Fernie's primary responsibility is to act as Head Doorstop. He's really good at it, too! Must be that sock full of coins in his ass.
Fernie - Door
Dude, I've got coinstipation.

But you know, being a doorstop has sort of limited entertainment value. So when he thinks nobody's home, Fernie likes to roam about the house. Sometimes he hangs on the computer...
Fernie - Computer
Man, no wonder she's on this all the time! I wonder what her friends are queuing up...

Talks to the camel...
Fernie - Camel
So, like, how much water can you really store in there?

Checks out the fridge...
Fernie - Fridge
I'm guessing grapefruit juice was on sale.

Or watches TV.
Fernie - TV
They have like, 600 freakin' channels. How can nothing be on?!?

With a lack of decent shows on, Fernie decided to spend some time gazing out the window. He was deep in his Spherey thoughts when suddenly...

*knock knock knock*
Fernie - Window
I wonder who that could be?

He went to the door, opened it, and got the shock of his life to discover...

Hey, only one of those little buggers has any orange or blue on him. So I'd demand a paternity test if I were Fernie. Just sayin'.

Besides, how would he reproduce? Does he have a little knitted wee-wee? If so, you must have improvised, because I don't remember seeing those instructions in the pattern.

Bad Spherey! Bad! He is cute though. The girls probably can't keep their hands off him.

I am another one marveling at your fridge!

The orange and blue is together makes for such a cute little fellow! (Even if he is rather naughty...).
