Cat, Computer, Cola

Three necessary items for the production of the written word. Well, actually the cat’s not strictly necessary. Unless you ask the cat about it. In which case the cat’s the only necessary thing.
In other news, I am now home. Yay! And have work to catch up on. Boo!
I can’t help but notice that your “written word” is actually twitter. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
That’s why the cat has such an admonishing look on her face.
Is that Trello on your screen?
That looks like the cat I had growing up! Although her expression is somewhat different. Is she a Balinese?
When I read the headline… my first thought was that your cat had knocked your coke over and broken your computer.
I was sure that “cat, computer, cola” was a recipe for a small electrical fire followed by the loss of all of your not backed up work.
Amazing how you got all three items to sit in one spot long enough for the group photo.
That cat definitely does NOT approve.
Your twitter display just gave me a seizure. How do you have brain with that kind of onslaught of brevity?
ONLY Ghlaghghee could out-pretty a macbook.
“Unless you ask the cat about it. In which case the cat’s the only necessary thing.”
I don’t know where the idea that cats are selfish and arrogant comes from, I’ve lived with cats my whole life and have never really seen it.
That keyboard looks chiclety and … uncomfortable.
I wonder if Chang, who is ! Chang, is still hanging around.
That’s the ingredient list for a recipe called “Three Mile Island Surpise”
@scorpius – its cats’ world. We’re here only to open the cans.
@Bob – And provide petting. Don’t you dare forget the petting!
The cat clearly does not consider Hootsuite a work tool. Or she is thinking, “Oh, crap. 24/7 Journey again. I’ve so stopped believin’.”
‘Cuz, yanno, my dog completely despises Keith Richards lately for similar reasons.
I’m sure Fluffy (I’m not even gonna try to spell it the way you do) was woefully unloved and underfed while you were gone, hence the disapproving look on her face. For shame, sir!
Dog, Computer, Whisky would probably be my recipe, but what ever works for you… cats not withstanding…. (allergies flare up and sneeze all over computer and into whisky).
If you print your sequel to The Great Fart Joke on a cat, I’ll buy three.
And then encourage others to do likewise, as it would probably help with the lawsuits.
My cat drinks the cola, so I don’t drink at the computer anymore, except Kool-Aid. She won’t touch the stuff.
Sigh… I miss the Executive Committee.
The cat is essential, as motivation to produce and earn cat food money. “Feed me, or else.”
Always good to start off the day with a nice picture of a cat–or better yet, have one on your lap. I consider them to be a necessity of life.
Um…wher is the bacon? The picture is not perfect without bacon – preferably taped to (at least) one of the the other nouns mentioned.
What Marc said. Bacon?
Next one to miss Chang != Chang…
So, Chang != Chang, wherever you are, know that the cat is probably disapproving of your absence!
Otherwise great picture!
