Ceiling Cat 2

Ceiling Cat is watching you stand around the coffeemaker

While chat­ting with some cowork­ers around the cof­fee sta­tion at work, I looked up and was sur­prised by a ceil­ing cat.


It would appear that a pat­tern is avail­able here: http://tubbypaws.blogspot.com/2008/03/meow-you-can-has-lolcats.html

Ketchup Post

I have been doing some house­clean­ing on the lap­top and came up with some pho­tos and videos that were not pre­vi­ously posted.

The Chronulator

The Chronulator is a great lit­tle clock kit. It’s a dig­i­tal ana­log clock–using dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy to dis­play the time on ana­log meters. Apparently the guy who makes the kits is here in Portland. He swung by early new year’s eve as we were get­ting prepped to go out and deliv­ered the pack­age in per­son. If it were some other night, I would have chat­ted with him a bit more.

Cartoon Box Trap

You know, in car­toons, how they have a box propped up with a stick with a string attached? I started doing the same in the kitchen with a card­board box and pen­cil. As I was set­ting it up, on cat trig­gered it on the other.

Squirrel

I got a “shepherd’s crook” thing for the bird feeder because the squir­rels were smart enough to dan­gle upside from the eves, where the bird feeder was pre­vi­ously. Well, it seems that they are smart enough to just climb up the pole. Duh.

Laugh out Loud

I’ve been fol­low­ing The Laugh Out Loud Cats for a while now and ordered a signed copy of his book. Adam, hav­ing never seen Ebenezer, nonethe­less drew a pretty good like­ness. :) He rarely smokes a cigar, but often car­ries around a piece of rub­ber weath­er­strip tub­ing in his mouth.

Food

I know the lat­ter pic­ture is from a recent trip to Pasadena. I have no idea where the first pic­ture comes from. I remem­ber the bar hav­ing tables with that imitation-chalkboard-paint applied to them, and there were mul­ti­col­ored sticks of chalk. It had to have been in Portland, but I have no idea where.

To Move

To move, first u up, then u down. This was in the bath­room at an asian-themed bar-slash-restaurant (not restaurant-slash-bar) near the old place. The Jade Lounge, I think it was called.

Next, I need to make a ketchup post on the California trip last month.

LOL I has a blog post, with linkses

The screen­saver on the TV is a carousel of pho­tos from I Can Has Cheezburger.   Kim and I were just dis­cussing the gram­mar the other night.
Now, it seems that some­one named Anil has turned a stu­dious eye toward the LOLCATS phe­nom­ena and specif­i­cally the lan­guage.  In his post Cats Can Has Grammar, he looks at the lan­guage of those “cat macros” and deter­mines that there is a way to speak “cat” and do it wrong, mean­ing there has to be an actual gram­mar with rules.  He con­cludes from this that there must there­fore be a grammar–a sort of cre­ole (“cwee­ole”) or pid­gin.  There is even a visual gram­mar.  If it is not a white serif font (Arial Black or Impact) with a black out­line stroke, it is per­ceived as not quite right.

Someone named Stephen noted that there are no long-form kitty pid­gin works — they are all always just one or two images, never longer–and redid the Star Trek trib­ble episode in kitty pid­gin.

Because there aren’t enough cat pictures already

These are some of my favorite sphinx images from I Can Has Cheezburger? (Actually, the only sphinx images from the site, as far as I can tell)

Mulder, we have your sister Bass Bass Bass

In The Prestige, Nicola Tesla was played by David Bowie. How the eff did I not notice that?!

In other news, I’ve switched from BBEdit to TextMate. BBEdit isn’t even in my dock any­more and only comes up by acci­dent because of file asso­ci­a­tions. No edi­tor I found on OS X (includ­ing those two, SubEthaEdit, and oth­ers) had the tab-indents-a-selected-block-of-text fea­ture that I was look­ing for (well, except Eclipse, but that’s not so much an edi­tor as an IDE that takes 2 min­utes to load), but TextMate has all of the fea­tures I use in BBEdit, plus some really great tab-completion and plu­gin func­tion­al­ity and key­board short­cuts for EVERYTHING. It has a crazy num­ber of key­board short­cuts which, on the one hand, is a bit over­whelm­ing but on the other means I never have to touch the mouse. There’s also a “uni­ver­sal key­board short­cut” to bring up a search box of functions/keyboard-shortcuts so that I can learn the right key­board short­cuts with­out the mouse. It was writ­ten by a Unix hacker, and it really shows. They got my €39. I just need to train my fin­gers to type “mate blahblah.txt” at a shell prompt instead of “bbe­dit blahblah.txt”.

I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER? As lol­cats showed us before it dis­ap­peared, appar­ently, all pets speak in a com­bi­na­tion of l33t and pid­gin English.
