My Intolerable Working Conditions

by on Feb.01, 2007, under The Rest

The pain!

And a quick trip to the vet this morning resulted in Dexter’s ear mites getting treated, the first necessary jab, and drops for his gummy eye. Otherwise the vet was really impressed with him, and how healthy he was.

Thankfully he’s sleeping now exactly where you see him above, as this morning saw the discovery of the mouse cursor, and a brutal attack on my monitor, followed by somehow firing off about thirty applications at once, and then creating this really rather impressive graph with Excel.

If that mobile phone rings, I think he’ll hit the ceiling.

    Ah! I see! He is alredy Dexter.

    Has he had THAT trip to vet?…you know, the one where all the tabby cats avoid talking to him cos all he taleks about is his operation?

    PS I too have your nephew’s cold. …but all is not lost, I spent Monday in bed watching all 14 episodes of Firefly.

    My late kitten managed, somehow, to make every email sent to me by one particular person appear in green text. She also had a trick of shutting down my laptop by sitting on the power button.

    The Finchkitten spends her time rubgy tackling the Minnietron, who is too old and rubbish for that kind of thing. She also likes to sit in betwen the monitor and keyboard when I am playing a game.

    I WARNED YOU. I TOLD you that kittens were evil.

    Course, it IS kinda cute…

    ARGH! I have fallen into it’s trap!

    (lack of sleep and a few minutes before a lecture make for some weird comments…)

    Dexter’s latest confusion is where sounds come from with speakers. He darts behind it to discover the source.

    What frighteningly hairy arms…

    You know, I predict a time when you’ll find Dexter’s fascination with your computer a lot less endearing. I expect hilariously wrathful blogs about lost or mangled reviews. Bonus points if the kitty deletes something with a looming deadline. And I love the name.

    So, is Dexter the House Cat or is he your cat …i.e. does he come with you when you visit?

    I suppose that if dexter should prove you wrong and have kittens (s)he’ll become Dextress?)

    Dexter belongs to the house, with the awkward nightmare of who actually keeps him to come in the future.

    Simply imagine you are piloting your space ship through space, on a search for fortune and fame. Perhaps you are in the process of working a trade route, transporting ore from a central mining area to a heavily industrialized planet in order to sell it…
