Sorry About the Tainted Cheesecake

Shout-out to new subscriber Elane! Thank you! And to the anonymous donor who asked “Just want to know if NTMTOM is the same as NONTOM”: Thank you very much, but I am not the same as Non Tom, the premium tea from Vietnam. According to this page, when you brew Non Tom, “you will feel smell of small nuggets.” As far as I know, I don’t smell of small nuggets, but this is the sort of thing even your best friends won’t tell you.

I want to apologize for the cheesecake video earlier today, which looked really funny until someone noticed how it was staged. It bothers me when I get punked by things like this, because it means I’m not paying close enough attention. Anyway, onward we go.

    Don’t beat yourself up, NTMTOM! A lot of us were taken in by the video! Your fans know you have the best interests of our anipals at heart!

    Don’t apologize, NTMTOM! You weren’t the only one who didn’t see that hand at first. Heck, *I* didn’t see it until I’d watched it about 15 times, and I’m kind of regretting even mentioning it. It’s never fun to be a killjoy! You find an amazing selection of things for our entertainment, and I think I speak for everyone here when I say THANK YOU for setting up your own site so we’d be able to continue to enjoy your wonderfully unusual brand of Teh Qte!!!

      Both NTMTOM and Laura can take a deep breath. It’s all good. No doggies were hurt in the making and viewing of this video. We all love this place!

      And nuggets or no, I usually feel better when I can’t smell people.
      Unless they smell like cheesecake. πŸ˜‰

    I’m going on the theory that the hand was simply pulling doggie back from snarfing up all the cheesecake in one bite and the effect just turned out to be funny.

    On a side note, today on facebook the video of the doxie and the lab playfully arguing over the squeaky toy on/under the chair randomly showed up in my feed. So I watched it another 4 times.

    You know what? Even knowing about the scruff-grab, it was an awfully funny look on pupper’s face. Also, one of the things I love about you and this site is how responsive you are to your fans. That takes thought and energy, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who really appreciates it.

    I don’t know what the smell of small nuggets feels like, and I suspect that’s a good thing.

    I’ve decided to restore my name from the Old Ranch. It’s shorter, and easier to pronounce than my other option, β…‹.

    You have no need to apologize, we all love your site NTMTOM and I’m certain we would love your smell too, whether it be of small nuggets or big ones πŸ˜€

    I love the smell of small nuggets in the morning! (Cue helicopters and Valkyrie music.)

    No apologies needed.

    Apology? Tut tut! Pshaw! Pfffft!

    Oh, NTMTOM, don’t worry about it. I didn’t notice either until it was pointed out. You’re only human after all….or ARE you? :dramatic music:

    I am mad at you for making me hungry for chicken nuggets, though.

    No worries! Any chance to think about yummy cheesecake is a good thing.

      No, that’s not me!

      Or, to put it in the most cumbersome way possible: I’m not that Not That Mike The Other Mike, I’m the other Not That Mike The Other Mike.

        Wow that is so weird.
        Who would have thought that there was Another quirky creative humorous genius NTMTOM who can do practically everything?

        Oh MY Gosh!
        Now I understand why you went straight to the invasion from Pluto theory!

        I have to go do 10 or so minutes of research to see how many more of you are out there.

        (there will now be a certain amount of reverential bowing and scraping to the vanguard of our new overlords while I temporarily exit the site…)

        Steve Martin had a routine where he believed there was this other man doing exactly the same thing as he was doing all the time. The idea starts to drive him crazy. Steve gets more and more exasperated and finally decides to phone him to get him to stop!!

        Dials phone. Line is busy…

    Thanks for the tea link.I really like the cheap Vietnamese coffees,with their unique almost licorice taste,and brutal caffeine content.I will have to try their tea,also,to see if it is in the same vein.

    NOMTOM, really and truly I’m grateful every day to you for building this site. You listen to us, share what you’re doing, and make everything fun. If you hadn’t opened up shop even before CO went away, I’m not sure I could get out of bed every day.
