Throw back Thursday… remember these tiny guys?
Look how cute baby Morcilla was!
And to think I almost chose the orange boy…
Here is Morcilla, prettily reflected in the screen of my new TV…
Problem? Well, yes. Morcilla has become enthralled by the cute cat “inside the TV screen” and does whatever she can to make contact, including SCRATCHING THE HELL OUT OF THE SURFACE. You know, to get inside, so she can play with this obviously attractive other being. Seriously, Morcilla sits up on her haunches and commences trying to scratch through to the other side of the screen. So far I haven’t seen any damage to the screen… I think she can’t really get a grip with the pointy-scratchy tips of her claws, so she ends up just (just???) dragging the curved edges of her claws along the screen. This morning I decided to try putting a throw over the TV when it’s not in use. We’ll see if that helps. Honesty. I mean, cheap 12€ IKEA curtains are one thing, but a 700€ TV???
It’s computer upgrade time! Not so much for myself, but flatmate Peter has been using trusty six-year-old Shadow since I bought the Greyhound, and it’s looking like Shadow is about to give up the ghost, so if I upgrade then I can pass the Greyhound on to him. But I’m not sure which way to go. I saw an older version of an HP all-in-one desktop (different than the one shown above) awhile ago and thought it might be nice to have a larger screen to work with, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to lose the portability option of a laptop. Though it must be said that the Greyhound has seldom left the desk in the past three years. So I thought I had finally decided on going with this newer desktop version with a 23″ touchscreen, but then I saw this 17″ laptop that is a bit cheaper and seems to have more “stuff” (RAM, memory graphics, etc) so would it be better to go with the laptop instead and keep the portability option? Do I really need 12 GBs of RAM? Help?
Best part about coming home again was seeing the cats, and especially this little sausage. I love all my cats, but somehow I miss Morcilla the most when I’m away. I worry about her, wish I could cuddle and play with her. It’s actually hard being away from her. But then I come home and she acts like I’ve never been away (Azar used to SULK for hours) and she immediately wants me to pick her up and snibble her. I think I’m in love.
