Tuesday Toad Profile: Jade

sohlson posted this Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Name/nickname: Jade/ Jadeypants

Job: Guarding my mom’s desk from Daisy and the UPS guy.

What do you do for fun? I chase squirrels, birds and skunks. My mom says I’m not allowed to chase skunks anymore.  I’m thinking about chasing horses instead.

Favorite meal ever? Cat food

What three people (alive or dead) would you most like to invite for dinner? Odie (my cat friend), Julia Child and Ellen (not that talkshow lady – the lady we work with).

Desert island album? Is there one that sounds like a can opening over and over?

What’s your favorite Toad product? I know it’s a cliche, but the Cashmoore blanket is pretty good.

Where’s the next place you’d like to visit? Sometimes I get to go into stores.  I want to go to Nordstrom and visit the Chanel section – the black suits, preferably – where I can blow fur everywhere.  It will stress my mom out, but I think I’m worth it.

Which do you prefer?:

Surf/Ski: I heart snow.

Cat/Dog: I love cats.

Soul patch/ Full beard: Have we met? Beard. I’m, like, known for mine.

Salty/Sweet: Jerkey

Sunrise/Sunset: I’ll go cool with both since my dinner and breakfast times are right around then.

Water/Mountains: I was born in Colorado.  That’s where the prairie dogs are that I love to chase so much.

Milk Chocolate/Dark Chocolate: As if.

Bike/Car: Bikes for chasing, cars for getting to and from work.

Yoga/Run: You don’t need yoga when you’re already enlightened.

For those not in the know, Horny Toad is actually run by our dogs.  We humans are here only to help out when an opposable thumb is needed.  Which, by the way, is every time the barbecue gets fired up.  That’s what we call job security.
