The cat is a brat. He does this thing of getting freaked out at the wind, where he comes in his catflap, bolts round the room, bolts out again and stands there with his ears pointing in different directions. So he did that a couple of times yesterday morning, then came back in again and stood in the kitchen door with ears twitching. I went over to stroke him a bit, and he started to purr. But then I had stuff to do, so I started to walk past him ... and he jumped straight up from a sitting start and grabbed my leg about the knee and then bolted out of his catflap again when I squeaked!

He doesn't do these things when J's here, he behaves himself then ....

I know my place in the hierarchy, it seems ;)

Apart from being attacked by the cat I mostly did housework yesterday ... did do some icons, too - tweaked the one for iconartistic then had a sudden flash of inspiration and did something completely different ;) That's entered, and I think I've finished the blend for blendage, need to contemplate that later, and then enter it. Started on the blend for blending_star - theme is Hilary Duff, and I tried googling for quotes, looking in IMDB at the films she's been in ... rom coms aren't my favourite genre of films by a long chalk, and all the quotes are so inspid ... I guess I should finish off and look at lyrics for her music, but I'm leaning towards a lack of words on this one ;) Just her name, maybe. But that probably means I need more decor :/

Watched telly last night too - Monarchy, which was all about the transition from the Tudors to the Stuarts, and how James I & VI and Charles I screwed up so badly that they brought the Civil War on their own heads. The main book I'm reading at the moment ("Reformation: Europe's House Divided 1490-1700" by Diarmaid MacCulloch) has also covered that so it was interesting to see another exposition so soon after reading that bit (having trouble wording that - I mean that the same broad things were discussed but the details picked out were different, which colours how the telling of it feels).

Need to write about the books I read while on holiday - and maybe quickly run down what telly I watched, as it's rare it happens ;)

How about finding a quote from something more appealing that suits the imagery.,.. random bit of shakespear or a proverb or something else entirely. Doesn't need to be *relevant* ;)

True, but she's a bit of an inspid blonde too, so relevance was what was going to be the saving grace ;) Once I've got the picture done I'm sure either words will pop into my head, or I'll work round it :)

Go for something insipid like some of Shakespeare's more eye-crossingly not-my-cup-of-tea sonnets, or Keats, or the Brontës or something... I'm *sure* you can find appropriately insipidly suitable amongst that class of stuff *chuckles*

... Or get a really dirty graffiti font and put something utterly inappropriate on it instead. Muahahaha. Oh yes. *wicked grin*

Cats have stash of sweet, sweet smack that they dip into.

I'm convinced on that.

They never grow out of taking it neither :)

Well, first the cat is a kitten, then it's holding onto its vanishing kittenhood, then it's reliving its kittenhood, then it enters its second kittenhood ;)

Oh yes. And our Toby-cat has some of the finest!

Perhaps the cat's only trying to give you a hug? :)
Margaret: Eek! So scary!pling on October 4th, 2005 12:25 pm (UTC)
Hmmm. Not sure about that, I think he's just a crack-kitty

*looks over at her sleeping kitty-cat*

Better you than me! *muwhahahahaha*

For iconartistic, I ended up going in a totally different direction than I originally went too. For some reason, my first inspiration had to do with G&S's Mikado. Luckily, my final one has NOTHING to do with that *grin*
