It's been great!

I am swimming in treats of all kinds. I won a prize at the One World, One Heart blogger event.
And just when the human stopped making high pitched noises of excitement, I won again. And again. In fact I won SIX times!


First I won the grand prize from Melanie's Journey a print called Enchanted Forest.

Then I won a necklace from A Frayed of Fibers

Then soon found out I won cat themed scrapbooking embellishments (those are so going on my pages!) from PawsN2Stamp

And just when I thought it was done, the human got another email saying I'd won two cat magnets from 3Cats Creations

But I wasn't done having my lucky name drawn!
Because then Following Trolltacks informed me that I won her penguin through the Art Dolls Only giveaway.

I figured this HAD to be the end of it until Papier-Welten sent out a mass email to everyone who commented. She asked those who came, to give her a request, something to do with paper and the most creative idea wins their idea realized. Well turns out Judith is really generous as she is fulling everyone's requests (all 44 of them), which means eventually (when she gets to me at the bottom of the list) there will be a cartoon of yours truely gracing the world.

I don't have a picture of this yet obviously.

This has been quite the adventure for both myself and the human. Ok so I slept for most of it, but typing is exhausting.
Which reminds me...I gotta go take a nap soon.
Hopefully next year the human will have a blog of her own and maybe even something to give away too. And hopefully the human's lap will be open for sitting when she does it all again, who knows, it may have been me sitting there through it all that brought in so many wins.

So my title as Lucky Ducky not only stands but flies to a challenge. I have more treats I can possibly eat (though the human won't let me eat em all at once *pout*) and my human is happily waiting for the mail.

Oh looks like the first package arrived! I gotta go see!

Maybe I should explain.

The last several days I've been commenting on a lot of blogs, or should I say I've commented on the odd blog here and there but my human has been doing the rest.

*the human waves*

I've been promised my favorite treat, salmon cubes if I help her win something from the "One World One heart" event. She'd do it herself but she's not an active blogger MOL! And being active is a requirement (thankfully most of the giveaways were open to everyone, except one who specifically said humans only, which did not make me a happy tabby).

For your information, for most of these posts I have been perfectly happy sitting on her warm lap as she types. She likes calling herself my 'ghost writer' because of this whole thing...hmm maybe I'll get her to type up a few of these blog things in the future?

So if anyone see's some weird posts by me talking about my crafting, my mom or anything else human like crossing fingers for luck, well you can guess that's my human.

She has my full purrmission to do this. She also has my full purrmission to give me those promised treats early.
*the human shakes her head*

What up with what's up Duck?

I've been asked in the past, what's with the journal title? What does it mean? Your name is Ducky, not Duck.

Well, to put it simply, it's a play on words.
My human has the weirdest sense of humor at times.

She started calling my nannybug (originally named Lokki) Bug. Then buggaboo. Then for fun, Bugs. Then came Bugs Buggy.

Sounds like a familiar character does it not?

For some reason seeing the two of us snoozing together as we often do, an idea came to mind. Instead of that funny rabbits catch phrase "What's up Doc?" she called us Bugs Buggy and the What's up Duck.

When it came time to name my blog, I thought, what better name than What's up Duck? I post what's up with me and the crew (but mostly me).

So there you have it.
Now can I have a salmon cube?

A popular Ducky indeed!

Though it may not show it by my astounding numbers here, I'm actually getting quite popular on that birdy talk site.

Follow WhatzupDuck on Twitter

I have been listed 8 times and197 followers (some of them even humans or DOGS!) .

Even Patches can't believe it (and she's still mad she can't figure out how to get on my twitter so she can post on there like she does on this blog).

Taking a bite out of twitter birdies, one follower at a time.

I think I really do like this birdy site afterall!

It's all white outside

It's soo white outside it's all I can see. The white has crawled up the window and covered it up to my height so I can't see anything else!

I think I now know why Patches calls it sNOOOOOO!

So glad I don't have to go out there. I'd disappear in snow that deep!
