getting hairy

The council doesn't give a stuff what we do to that tree since it's not indigenous. Anyone Not From Around Here can bloody well take their chances it seems. On the weekend I murdered a golden diosma which was growing next to the front steps and in its place planted some banksia (for the banksia men), the dougals, and a bunch of tubes of things that grow around these parts. I'm going to write off for some canna lily rhizomes in a minute since I feel that in the interests of vegetable multiculturalism it's important to encourage native and exotic species to mix (but not force them to assimilate).

Pud has forgotten he ever lived anywhere else, although he's having a hard time working out how the cat door goes. Not the most brilliant of souls, he'll sit next to the flap and cry until someone comes along and pushes it open for him. Albie however is still doing his Anne Frank act under the sofa bed. Maybe I can be his love interest a la 'Peter'. I bring him his meals under there twice daily and drag him out occasionally for a patting. Apart from Albie's issues and the painfully long time it now takes me to get everyone's breakfast in the morning, they all appear to be reasonably satisfied with the new domestic arrangements. There is a dilemma, though: three times as many cats does mean three times as much vacuuming is required, but I'm afraid if I switch it on then Albie will have some kind of meltdown.

Speaking of puzzles - I took the Which Lolcat Are You? quiz (via Clancy):



Your Score: Lion Warning Cat


57% Affectionate, 66% Excitable, 28% Hungry




You are the good Samaritan of the lolcat world. Protecting others from danger by shouting observations and guidance in cases of imminent threat, you believe in the well-being of everyone.








Best quiz ever.

I CAN HAS CHEESEBURGER
"Sure, you deserve one. You helped popularized lolcats from a running gag to an online sensation. Now mainstream media writes asinine columns on this 'phenomenon', students write theses on the topic, programming languages adopt the grammar, and losers write tests about them on dating sites. Now take your cheezburger and never touch the internets again."

Awwww... but that was so awesome!

Poor Albie. Pooter feels deeply for him. Padge thinks he should get over it. He wants to meet Pud for some quality lolling.

I am Serious Cat.

Hungry for knowledge in any internet forum, you demand decorum. Any off-topic remarks, absurd statements, or tomfoolery on the interweb is deeply frowned upon by you. Truth has no room for drollery.

Im in ur fridge, beein ur 7331 CAT!

"Lolzergs have nothing on you. You are swift and ruthless, cutting down whatever and whomever necessary in order to obtain the foodz. As one of the first lolcat known to man, your ancient skills in location-declaration and object-verbing have been passed down several generations, keeping the spirit of felinity alive."

This quiz is uncannily accurate.

I'll take your word for it, Laura, as apparently I'm "Ceiling Cat is watching you masturbate". Not exactly what I was expecting, and I decline to comment on the issue of uncanny accuracy.

Also, doesn't the following suggest you're the Mary Bennet of lolcatz?

"You are the good Samaritan of the lolcat world. Protecting others from danger by shouting observations and guidance in cases of imminent threat, you believe in the well-being of everyone."

Perhaps I'm the Miss Bates?

lucy tartan said...

eg

“Pray take care, Mrs. Weston, there is a step at the turning. Pray take care, Miss Woodhouse, ours is rather a dark staircase— rather darker and narrower than one could wish. Miss Smith, pray take care. Miss Woodhouse, I am quite concerned, I am sure you hit your foot. Miss Smith, the step at the turning.”

etc

Fyodor said...

Miss Bates would work, if she weren't such a sympathetically downtrodden character. Moreover, you can't be Miss Bates, Miss Tartan, as you can't be relied upon to say dull things, let alone three at once.

Strangely enough, my first thought was Emma Woodhouse, but that's too flattering to be comic. I'm afraid you simply MUST be Mary Bennet.

lucy tartan said...

My students aren't keen on Emma. Many found her in need of a good shaking.

Fyodor said...

That's a shame, but a fair cop.

Mind you, most of the Janeite heroines are in dire need of a damn good spanking.

jac said...

I never realised the study of Austen got so... physical.

I am Longcat. Ah, if only...

Mindy said...

Cheeseburger cat. Hubby is delighted about the death of the diosma. He can't stand the stuff.

TimT said...

Mr Woodhouse and his fond devotion to gruel wins me over.

TimT said...

After that last comment, you're probably not too surprised to find out that I am Cheezburger Cat.

This is OMG!1!amazing. I got the same LOLcat and I am actually that kind of personality. I blame my Dad. I still haven't reached the level of excess he has in the matter of warning everyone who will listen about every lurking danger in everything no matter how unlikely!

I too am Longcat, Protector of Truth and Slayer of Darkness. And in that role I too have occasionally longed to give Emma a smack upside the head.
