Look, It's ME, Lili of Lili-Land with my BFF Derek on the cover of Dan's Papers

That's me Lili of Lili-Land sitting pretty on Dan's Papers cover for this week's Thanksgiving issue. I think it looks just like me. That's Derek sitting next to me waiting for a cookie from our favorite bakery. 

You can read the paper here at

I think the artist did a wonderful job at capturing me. He did a nice job on Derek too and also Tate's Bakery but I can't stop staring at myself.

Have a Lili-icious Day and don't shop too much but if you do... #shopsmall .

Move Over Brian Griffin!

Move over Brian Griffin. There's only room for one white dog around here and that's ME... Lili of Lili-Land.

Brian's untimely demise left me momentarily sad and then I thought... Wait... There's only room for one white dog around here. I'm certainly not foul mouthed as is Brian Griffin. I don't smoke or drink. I've been known to toss back a few Shirley Temples and dance the night away, but I always get to bed at a reasonable hour.

So here's to you Brian Griffin. I shed a tear but your days as King are over. Long Live ME.... Queen Lili.

#ShopSmall Saturday with ME... Lili of Lili-Land

#ShopSmall Saturday
November 30,2013
Sponsored by American Express

This gal shops BIG in a #ShopSmall way! My American Express Card is burning a hole in my fur pocket!

Hello all! It is me, Lili! I have been celebrating Hanukkah because I never pass up the opportunity to celebrate a holiday. I am also preparing for a Lili-mas joyous Christmas extravaganza! Let the Shopping begin. 

I gathered Derek and Meeko (he's a cat) to shop Local with me on November 30, Saturday!

One thing for Lili-sure is I shop Big, Big, Big in a small business boutique way!
American Express is promoting a campaign to shop small and help out our tiny stores across the USA!

To start, I will hit the shops in Lovely Westhampton Beach!

First it's the Beach Bakery to sip delicious coffee to warm my paws.  I'll fill Derek and Meeko's sweet tooths with some yummy-licious JELLY DONUTS. Then it's time to chat up Simon the owner! 

Now it's time to begin my shopping whirlwind! I will visit Messina Jewelry and scoop up some diamonds and precious stones for me, me, me! I'm worth it.

I will also get some trinkets for Derek and Meeko! Messina's has lovely cufflings too! I love the one on one attention I receive there!

After that, I will buy up the toy store Sugar Daddy's! They have cool super hero figurines that Derek loves! Toys for the big kid and collector! They have a giant Iron Man statue! Lili Cool! Derek loves this place but I have to keep Meeko's paws off that Iron Man Statue. I'm sure he'll try to scratch out it's eyes. Bad Kitty!

I need some baby gifts so I will make an appearance in Shock Kids! They have great unique stuff!

I also need some NYDJ Jeans, so I will pop over to Shock Women's store! They have great service! I took 5 lbs off my figure with a pair of jeans! Lili fabulous! I need some fantastic sweaters too!

I will race across the street to Blue 1 for some funky clothes for some of my movie star friends! You know who you are! I hate to be a name dropper!

Then we'll stop at Lynne Stoller's Shop for some great designer stuff! What a lovely experience!

We'll be exhausted but onward we'll go... There are more and more stores to hit before we leave! To name a few, Beach Greenery, to pick up some cute things for the home. Westhampton Beach T Shirts, the lovely owners Flo and Jim and of course their D-O-G, Colleen. They make cool customized T Shirts! I ordered 10,000 "I Love Lili Bruno T Shirts" for all my friends! 

The reason? They Love me, Lili!

I cannot forget Fahrenheit! My friend Sammy's mom owns it! Hip and Lili happening clothes!

I can't forget Lynne's for endlessly needed Holiday Cards!
We'll be famished so it's lunch at Margarita Grill!  Always delicious!

Shop Small! American Express is right on target!
Support your local business owner!!!!

I did!

A Thoring Snoozefest of Epic Proportions

Thor! A Thoring as in Boring Bad Time!

Hello all! It is me, Grand Gal Lili of Lili-Land.

Derek, Meeko (he's a cat) and I went to the movies and saw the much anticipated Thor.

We were a bit confused, at first, since we had not seen the first one... apparently we missed the memo.

None the less....UGH! Let me tell you... It was barking awful! We had a growling grueling time!

First of all, Thor is handsome, but I cannot sit there and watch a man who is trying to be prettier than me! 

Of course, the producers begged me to play the Natalie Portman role but they thought I would outshine the main character Chris Hemsworth and of course I would because I am Lili fantastic.

Anyway, I HATED this movie. The special effects were GEE WHIZ BINGO but that's about it.

The ruthless brother was slightly interesting. He reminded me of Meeko (he's a cat) sneeky at times but fun to watch chase after a mouse.

I don't even know how to review Thor. Only that there were a lot of freaky creatures and Thor swinging his big hammer.

I am so happy I dropped out of this film. It was tiresome. Derek fell asleep. I cracked him over the head and shouted, "WAKE UP!" He thought he got his with Thor's hammer.

Meeko threw popcorn at the screen several times before management at the theater tossed him out.

Please stay home. Don't see this movie.

Thor was a snoring bland time....It would have been better had Thor knocked us all out with that hammer.

Peace, Love and have a Lili-icious Day from here in Lili-Land.

Last Vegas with ME, Lili of Lili-Land.

Hello all! It is me, Lili of Lili-Land!

Derek and I went to see the new movie Last Vegas!

What a howl! It was a barking grand time!

I was invited to be in it but some of the shenanigans were not very Lili like. The stars, (I call them the grand papas) begged me.... so I filmed some scenes to keep them happy! Bobby DeNiro, Kevin Kline, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Douglas all did a wonderful job.

As you can see, I took Vegas by storm! They even changed the name!
Lili Vegas!

I do shine!

There was a scene when we were all toasting each other... I had a Shirley temple as did the grandpas! At least that is what they told me.

Because Vegas is sweltering hot, my pads of my paws were overheated so a young man in the movie carried me!

Derek tried to play the slots. He lost. Meeko tried his paws at the Black-Jack tables and he lost too. 

I played the big money wheel because I love the clickity clackity sound that wheel makes. I WON. I should have bet more than a whole dollar. I took my 7 buckaroos in winnings and stopped right there.

Please go see this movie! You will laugh, cry and have a Lili-Grand time!

Without spoiling it for you, friendship is what matters! 

Mary Steenburden was great... But she was a burden (that's what I call her) she would not give me any singing scenes! She didn't want me to steal her thunder! As I say in Lili land, no harm, no growl! Everyone knows who can belt out a tune in Lili grand fashion...ME!

Loved this film!
See you at the movies!

Lili of Lili-Land is Under the Weather.

Hello all it's me Lili of Lili-Land.

I think that Meeko (he's a cat) gave me a cold. He insisted over and over that he had allergies but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... He was sick... and spreading his germs all over my house.

And so now I'm in bed and thank the stars for my BFF, Derek. He is taking excellent care of me in my hour of need.

Aaaaaachooooooo! I'll get back to blogging soon.

Now Meeko insists he's going to catch something from ME. He looks downright ridiculous in that silly mask.
