The blobs seem to think we're "pretty" or "cute"...

Ugh.

We are of course supremely elegant and beautiful. And evil. But anyone calling us "cute" is likely to feel the Sharp Pointy Bits in their flesh. Oh yes.

Here are our Pepper and Zool and Pteppic selves today:

Male Blob sent Female Blob a birthday card, ostensibly from us. Normally we Don't Approve of such things, but in this case He got it about right - it's the spitting image of how Esk sees herself. You can click on the image to see a bigger version.

we had a visitor last night - Claire from Clifton Cats. It seems that They are planning a holiday (what's that?), and Claire is going to look after us.

we were very well behaved, and she seemed to think we are lovely; which, of course we are. Although, perhaps, not precisely as she thought.

we got a bit bored with LJ, to be honest, but this corporate site caught our attention.

Male Blob, perlmonger, has bought a Canon Pro 90 IS (it says, apparently), and has taken an image of Pepper. A huge image of Pepper - it's 1.4Mb, and 1856x1392 pixels. You can find it here, and don't say we didn't warn you. Or you can see a little version in perlmonger's LJ.

Mood: grateful

we assume everyone has seen ratemykitten.com.

Zool has taken it into her head to enter herself for this, so we are soliciting votes - you will find her here. Please vote for her!

Subject:Save Angus
Security:Public
Mood: annoyed

Angus is a cat who was adopted sixteen years ago by a fire station in Merseyside after having been rescued from a fire.

A Merseyside Fire Service insider said: "It's got to be said that Angus is a horrible cat. He's taken a chunk out of a fair few legs over the years and now he's forgetting his toilet training. He's left the odd damp patch on the chairs and was found sleeping on the chopping board recently. "

sounds like a bloody good cat to us ...

Subject:rubber bands
Security:Public
Mood: worried

Zool has a fondness for rubber bands - the postman drops them when he's delivering the mail, and she brings them home and kills them.

so this Dr Fun cartoon is rather apposite. And worrying.

Subject:still on the subject of the sushi bar ...
Security:Public
Mood: irritated

They were disturbed this morning when they could only count nine (out of eleven) of the fish in the pond this morning. The missing ghost koi soon put in an appearance, but the cream Zoolfish was nowhere to be seen.

we were all interrogated ruthlessly until, eventually, the recalcitrant Zoolfish emerged from under whatever stone it had been lurking. We do wish They would learn that we are not interested in Their bloody fish until the creatures have grown enough to provide a decent mouthful.

and, as an aside, they seemed ridiculously upset about the loss of a 2" goldfish that they bought on Saturday, costing less than UKP3. So They should be really distressed when we do consume the wretched piscines (heh heh!)

Subject:more food
Security:Public
Mood: devious

They have added some more fish to Their fish pond, which will in future be known as the sushi bar, thanks to valkyrie_k. Because we haven't yet touched the fish, They think that we will always leave them alone.

fools

two of the fish are plump, and wriggle a lot, and They have christened these Zoolfish. This is unkind, but accurate.

the Female Blob has removed her 19" monitors from her desk; we used to love to sleep on them - so warm. And now there's these little thin things there - no heat, and no room to sleep.

She didn't even ask us first - She's like that.

someone is watching us from Electronic Warfare Associates, Inc - we really are beginning to get worried about the amount of military type visitors we get.

it transpires that Female Blob omitted to remove any oxcheek from the freezer this morning, and thus there is none for our supper. She has put down a tin of tuna in an attempt to placate us; we will eat it, but She needn't think that we are won over.

Male Blob at work @ Motorola
our regular from Technische Universitaet Berlin, and
a cable user from Buckeye Express in Toledo, Ohio

we've also had a visitor today from Saudi Arabia, and someone from the Royal Signal and Radar Establishment (which sounds a bit military) - technology is truly a wonderful thing. Especially when all they ever see us do is sleep.

now, we don't normally like Flash stuff. But this was pointed out to us by marypcb, and we were pretty impressed. Which is pretty unusual. Whoever authored this knows cats very well.

right. Now we're trying out LiveLizard, which looks quite fun, and allows us to edit this direct from Mozilla. This means we can sneak into the back bedroom and use the iMac, where They won't see us talking about Them. It took us ages to download, which is why we are a little stressed. Why is the internet so slow? Ah, LiveLizard doesn't seem to cope with the emoticons too well. Ho hum ..
