Model kitty

Today is one of THOSE days.  You know the kind: my servants were both busy on their computers IGNORING ME.  How DARE they?!  I am the bright and shining centre of the universe!!!

One of the servants was busy editing the zombie shuffle footage the other took a few weeks ago.  When his tummy started rumbling unbearably, he got up to make lunch.  Guess what happened next?

Her Royal Highness

Heh heh

Then the other servant, remembering that I am the epicentre of the household, took up the camera, taking the above picture of my gorgeous self.  Trouble was, she didn’t stop there.  She’s had the flu – how DARE she take a few DAYS off? – so she hadn’t photographed MEEE with items received.  She tried balancing the books on the edge of the chair, but I was somewhat miffed with having to share my personal space.  I arose and, with a flick of my tail, I departed.

After a short scratch from the servant, I benevolently agreed to pose with this week’s items received.

Pose the first
I haz an itch I haz to scratch
I haz an itch that needs scratching
final pic
Dignified pose

In my benevolent mood I allowed the servant to take a few more photos


glaring indignantly when she WALKED AWAY to upload the photos.  How dare she?!



Earth Girl

Apparently there is much rejoicing in this household as publishers are starting to put out more science fiction, including this young adult 28th century novel, Earth Girl by Janet Edwards. [flicks tail]

I wish the servant would make up her mind… what does she prefer? Science fiction or fantasy?  CHOOSE, DAMN YOU, CHOOSE.

Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor is a book the servant has been looking forward to since reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone last year.  The servant loved the vampire in Daughter – the ONLY vampire was a young man in costume to scare the tourists.  Well.  [sniff]  I LIKE vampires – they’re like a cross between cats and humans, so I find them RELATABLE [licks self]

APPARENTLY the servant is somewhat tired of vampires, especially when they have affairs with humans.  Personally, I LIKE playing with my food and see no problem with this AT ALL.
