    So ... being that I'm an engineer and also that I now have five (yup, that's right, FIVE!) cats in this house, I figured it was time for a primer on engineers living with cats ... so:

    "I will never drink again" is so funny.

    YES!  Ballet Cat exercises!

    Steph, I haven't had time to visit all the groups in here lately. 

    "My kingdom for a nom" reminds me of the last act of "La Boheme," when Mimi is supposed to be dying of consumption, but keeps reviving to sing another full-voice aria.

    I was in the 8th grade when our class went to see that opera, and it was very difficult for us to keep from giggling during that scene.

  • Steph S.

    oh hey there sk8eycat! So glad you got to visit here.

    Sounds like a funny scene in that opera. : )

    Ballet cat is funny. Have you seen the Yoga Cat calendar? I bought it - I will post some pictures from it.

    I really don't like opera...except for the instrumental parts.  Hurts my ears, especially the sopranos. 

    That particular production of "La Boheme" really was miscast; the woman playing the part of Mimi was about as wide as she was tall, and they never should have cast her in the role of someone who wastes away and dies of tuberculosis/consumption in the fiinal act.  It was hilarious...to a bunch of 8th-graders, anyway.

    In the meantime, here's Son of Ceiling Cat:

    Opera: people singing when they should be talking.

    Rap: people talking when they should be singing.

    ...from a humorous guide to musical genres floating around the web, which also includes stuff like...

    Blues: sung exclusively by people who woke up this morning.

    Folk: endless songs about shipwrecks in the 19th century.

    Classical: discover the 45 minutes they left out of the ad.

    (And I'm sure the kids remembered that miscasting as much as anything else in the opera!)

  • sk8eycat

    LOL  I was listening to classical music before I was 5 years old, but it was mostly ballet music and (Dad's fave) Gilbert & Sullivan.  They had one hell of a collection of 78 rpm records...including Glenn Miller, the Andrews Sisters, and I don't remember what else.  BUT the only opera music they had was Enrico Caruso...a very old pressing that was almost completely worn out.

    But this LOLcat IS the Mimi I remember from "La Boheme"...shrieking a few bars, and then collapsing, only to rise and shriek for another 5 minutes or so, and then collapsing again.  Took her forever to die.

    Kalliope thanks for the comic strip.

    sk8eycat those are great - love the kingdom for a nom one.

    Grinning cat - great LOL.

    Loren great Happy Halloween picture.

    I would post in the Ceiling Cat and Basement Cat group - but for some reason whenever I open the group to post it crashes my computer.

    Not sure what's going on there. Maybe a plug--in is not working or something.

    If I've asked this question before, let me know.  Do any of your cats stomp spiders?

  • agnosticat

  • Plinius

    Luna stomps spiders, and eveything else that moves, she tries to take tv images apart and sits on the windowsill trying to think out how to get at the birds and the passengers four floors down...

    Yea, after sitting on the kitteh sidelines for several years, I adopted a 2 yr. old grey tabby today! I'm pretty pumped and he's already behaving like he owns the place. He's pretty chill which works well with being single in an apartment, and the SPCA told me he doesn't get along with other cats so he needed someone like me.
  • Patricia

    Glad to hear another orphan gets a home! Not to mention companionship for each other Starscream.  

  • Plinius

    Congrats, Starscream and tabby!

  • Idaho Spud

    I'm glad Starscream.
