I love my MacBook. Have I mentioned that? Because I really love my MacBook. It has so many interesting features, and I don't even know how to use most of them. Mainly because I'm dumb. For example, I have been told there is a widget called Flores. This particular widget is supposed to tell me when I get a new email by blooming prettily as an flowering icon at the bottom of my screen. Cute, right? But stupid me, I can't HAVE Flores. No, as soon as I try to install Flores, the Flores people ask me all sorts of questions about my POP server and various incoming and outgoing mail servers and how to solve the Rubik's cube in UNDER 3.7 minutes and what my original thoughts are on global warning. Also, how to properly sear beef. And, as anyone who has eaten with me will attest, I'm not qualified to answer ANY of those questions.
However. The iSight is delightfully easy to operate (click on the little camera, and it counts down from three!) and so I often take pictures of...well....everything. Most often, as you'll see, "everything" means "cats". And this makes "Elise" "boring". Or, possibly, "crazy". But, nonetheless, cat pictures! And different iSight effects! Yay!
Jill, as shown in the Comic Book effect.
Sophia, as shown in the Colored Pencil effect.
Elise, as shown in the Pop Art effect. Don't I look kind of man-ish?
Elise and Jill, as shown in the Sepia effect. The only way to get Jill to stay anywhere, for any amount of time, is to let her lick your fingers. She never tires of this, and it's yet another example of her socially deficient personality.
Elise and Jill, as shown in the Black and White effect. This picture PERFECTLY sums up Jill, and her feelings on the world at large. See how miserable she looks? How annoyed, and beaten down by life? She hates everyone, all the time. Oh Jill, your life, truly, is difficult.
This is as still as Sophie gets. I have to hold her down and give her the kiss of death - pressure on the top of her head - for her to sit still at all. Ever. Her eyes are yellow and have this funny way of looking like they're narrowed permanently in a glare. However, Sophie is, far and away, the friendliest, most loving cat I have ever encountered. In other words, she is the polar opposite of Jill.
My cats, they hate each other. I keep waiting for the day when they'll be best friends, and will curl up together on the bed and sleep in a cozy ball of felineity. And all I get in thanks for my dreams of love and peace is this:
"HISSSSSSSSSS! Hisssssss, hisssSSSSSSS!"
Very pleasant creatures, cats.
