But this was too good not to share:
The original picture is open for lolcatting purposes here.
Back into writing mode for me. See you tomorrow.
Looks like the Whatever isn’t the only distraction here.
I think what’s going on there is obvious.
“Wait, lemme see if my nutzes are in there!”
Our score so far: PhotoShop 1; Scalzi 0.
Willpower 1; Scalzi 0.
What is this going to do to Chang/NotChang – two pics in one day?
Hello, Zeussy! You won’t like that, it’s not supposed to have caffiene in it.
Hmmmm…. Looks like John wants to be distracted from work… and who am I to disappoint? Zues needs…
I don’t know, it seems Zeus is offering the Coffee…
Damn, linky no work:
Zeus tries something else
Get to work, John.
But you knew that….
Who’s coffee is that really?
I vaguely recall you not liking coffee and saying something to the effect that coffee tastes the same as ass…
You know, ( and I could be wrong), but upon further examination…it looks like hot chocolate, which doesn’t taste like ass. Note the frothy, “I keep stirring in the powdered chocolate but it’s just not mixing” web on the upper rim of the cup. The color also looks wrong for straight coffee with cream.
Or it could be a cappuccino, but knowing his professed hatred of things that taste like behinds, I would put money on the hot chocolate. :)
Ironically, this would only seem funny if you have not yet had your coffee…
Bet Zeus is going to be raining down the lightning bolts now when you least expect it.
Prediction: there will be a cat velcro’d to Scalzi’s head by the end of the week.
*not on meds*
Like all kittens, Zeus appears to be self-spoiling. I swore up and down I wouldn’t spoil my latest. This weekend I had to admit I’d lost that fight.
Also, I propose “By Zeus’ missing nutzes” as a new expression of amazement around Whatever threads.

Exactly who is tasting behinds? I think I’d like to hear more of that story Mr. Paul Harvey.
(corny joke to follow) so it seems coffee really IS the nectar of the gods!

Formerly known as “Scalzi Compound”
Image taken 0.17 sec before subject tipped liquid into computer keyboard of phlegmy novelist with a blown deadline.
First responders reported there were no survivors.
This cat seriously has the greatest eyebrows evar!
And the muzzlepuff (also known as “Poohs”) are beyond compare.
“The cat, which drank the entire cup of coffee, was found two hours later and a hundred miles away, shaking uncontrollably in an aquarium store and muttering ‘Too many choices, too many colors, which one tastes like tuna…”
mmm…seems the caption ought to be…”Screw the water-bowl, Dude, I’ll have this from now on!”
“This ain’t rum & coke!”
BTW, if that’s coffee, it’s no wonder you don’t like it. You’re not making it right, dude.
Well, I certainly tried photoshoppery. Can’t say that it worked…
You know, after thinking better of it, although hysterical this morning after little sleep, my lolcat is vaguely creepy in an Internet sort of way.
I took it down. No harm intended. :P
Patrick M, shouldn’t you have Athena springing from Zeus’ head?
My cat has the same problem..He has to sniff everything that I am eating or drinking to see if he wants it. My cat really loves ice tea for some reason as my husband found out one evening. Luckily the cat’s head didn’t get stuck in the cup.
Well, now, Cassie, I was just happy to get any Scalzi springing from his head.
