Zorro makes a good teacher's pet

Zorro saw that his daddy needed some help grading papers and so he settled down to provide some moral support. He was willing to do the actual grading as well, but Mark was concerned his students wouldn't comprehend Zorro's brilliant and incisive wit, so he simply consulted Zorro on any particularly difficult decisions.

Zorro, as always, offered only the sagest advice. ;)

They loved it!

My committee loved my dissertation - hooray! That mans that, with the exception of a few administrative odds and ends, I am finished with my graduate education. I don't officially graduate until early May--but it's a great feeling.

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes! (And thanks as always to my sweet kitties for putting up with me [grin])

Tomorrow I...

defend my dissertation! And then (as of probably around 7pm on 5/29) I'll be Dr. PurrPrints! (how obnoxious would that be?)

Anyway, just had to share - wish me luck!

Puma prefers naps and laps to apps

I had to steal mommy's blog today to say that I am really tired of this new toy she has gotten.

First of all, what kind of toy has neither catnip, feathers, fur, nor nice crinkly sounds? I mean really, what good is a toy if it doesn't have at least one of those things? (Though mommy will never get me the feather and fur ones because she'sa says they are cruel to animals. I don't know what she means - I'm an animal, and it's cruel NOT to get them for me in my opinion!)

Secondly, this new toy makes her talk funny--always going on about "apps." At first I thought she meant naps, or maybe laps, and I was excited--because those are both very good things. I just thought maybe she had forgotten how to say these crucial words because her dissertation had finally fried her brain. (I don't know what this means, but I always hear her saying this.)

But no, there has been no surplus of naps or laps since she got this new toy, which I find really annoying. instead she's constantly pointing this thing at me and fussing if i don't sit sill to make a picture like the one above. So finally I did stay still--and look what she did! she made me all sideways!

Sigh. Its enough to make me need a nap.

P.s. - mommy says you all should check out this new treasury she is in, which was made by someone in honor f their newly adopted kitties.

My first mobile post

My latest crafting fascination: plushies & paperclay

I hope to be posting more often again soon because...

I've now joined the 21st century and gotten a smart phone! I'm hoping having such a handy way of taking pictures and turning them into blog posts will make me more prone to write. Right now I'm in the process of setting up my mobile blogging abilities, so if all goes well I'll hopefully be posting some new pics of both my cats and some new craft projects I've been working on (I'm getting very into sewing plushies and other 3d projects lately) to share with you all - assuming anyone is left after my long absence, that is ;)
