A Royal Decree from the Cats
Queen Duma here. I have confiscated the computer from Little Sooz today. Now that her book has sold and she is being bathed in congratulatory praise, ’tis time I confess the ugly truth behind Sooz’s books:
She is not the brains of the operation.
Not even close.
If you do not believe me, I have proof in pictures. I, Queen Duma, am the true creator. The Voice behind the Words. The wizard behind the curtain.
However, I lack opposable thumbs. ‘Tis a dreadful state — let me assure you. To be as beautiful, cultured, and well-spoken as myself, yet rely entirely on Sooz for everything. It is a fairy tale curse I must endure. At least the poor girl knows I am boss —
Woah, woah, woah. I’m gotta interrupt. Prince Mowgli here. Her Majesty is waaaaaay off. She, like, totally forgot about my contribution. I’m the in this whole operation too. Well… Kinda. I mean, I don’t have purty words like Her Majesty, but I got a wicked sense of adventure! Plots — all me. Zombies and monsters — definitely comin’ from my tabby mind.
And I’ve got this new idea, see? Where this giant mouse —
Stupid pipsqueak of a prince. I, Queen Duma, am back, but I must be quick. Little Sooz is groggily stumbling toward the office at this moment!
Before I sign off, my dear subjects, I want to add: if you wish to thank me for my Creative Prowess, then please purchase blue fin tuna (you need not worry about overfishing — that is Sooz’s concern, not mine) and send it to —
Hey, what the…
Scram! You’re not supposed to be here!
Gotta dash! À bientôt!

Hahaha, I’ll pass the message along. 😉 Seriously, my cats dominate my desk. I try to shut them out of my office, but then I get a chorus of whiny meows for HOURS… So I succumb and let them in…

Bernoulli likes to play ‘the running game’ wherein she runs and we chase–sort of a high intensity hide and seek. When I’m working in the office, she will run back and forth past the door hoping to tempt me from my readings…it usually works.

Hahaha, awesome. Distraction is important sometimes… 😀

Aw, they’re both so cute! *huggles them*

Oh dear! NO HUGGLES!!! YOU WILL LOSE AN EYE!!!!
For realz, tho… They’re not very nice cats. I’m pretty sure Queen Duma is constantly plotting my demise (a là Stewey) and Prince Mowgli is just the stupidest animal on the planet. If it weren’t for me, natural selection would have taken him out a long time ago.

What a great picture of the two cats with their heads together. What would we do without them?
December 9, 2010 @ 1:36 pm
You’re right…though the cats drive me nuts, what would I do without them?
December 9, 2010 @ 8:21 pm
LOL. And so adorable, too 😀
December 9, 2010 @ 8:25 pm
Ha! They are too cute!

I suddenly have the urge to lick my hand and glare at the computer…must be my cat sense tingling…

Vee: Adorable, yes, but dangerous….
Meredith: Look cute, but are in fact little hellions.
Jessica: HAHAHA!!! The glare takes skill — I’d like to see any human muster as much disdain as a cat!

The cats are beautiful – love the long-haired Queen Duma and the second pic of the Prince. Can you say ‘lazy’? 🙂
