This week I discovered an interesting Giant Military Cats. As you might guess, it features giant cats Photoshopped into military settings.
Well. Challenge accepted! And I knew just the photos I wanted to use. So…
…here you go, Giant Military Lorelai.
You’ve all seen it, I’m sure: the meme of a woman yelling at a cat. The woman is Taylor Anderson from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and the cat is Smudge.
Well…you know I had to do this! I knew that at least one of the professional photos of Izaak we had taken at the show in Örebro last year would be perfect for my own version of this meme.
Actually, there were two photos of Zak that were perfect, and I couldn’t decide which one I liked better. So, I made them both.
Regardless of which Zak-face is better, I knew the perfect argument for them to be having!
The ferry boarding photos I posted yesterday were not, exactly, the photos I originally purchased on the boat. We did get a photo of Izaak and Lorelai, but it was the close-up above. I had wanted one of them together in a photo with one of the special frames (I really like those because they have the date and the ship we were on). The photographer told me she couldn’t get that photo to fit the frame, and she had only gotten one shot of just the cats.
I asked if I could have the digital photos with my purchase, and she emailed them to me. I assured her that I could fix it.
Then too, that nice photo of Björn and me boarding together with the cats? Yeah, that also wasn’t exactly the perfect shot. They got one of me…with a cheesy Minnie Mouse suitcase behind me. And they got a decent one of Björn, dragging our crippled suitcase onto the boat (this was the trip that it finally became an ex-suitcase and ceased to be).
So, as you saw yesterday, I fixed that, too.
There’s a meme going around with three cats at different levels, with the highest level cat being designated “Boss Chonk.” Well, we’re going to a cat show this weekend, and I bathed Izaak and Lorelai. I also bathed Alfred, to help get him used to bathing (something I should have started doing when he was younger). Whilst bathing these three, this meme inexplicably came to mind.
So…I made a thing.
The other day, watching TV, a commercial for small loans came on, featuring “typical Swedes.” The man in the advert is meant to be Lars Johansson (the Swedish version of “Joe Average”), complete with manbun. I laughed and said, “Jeez…And of course he has a manbun! Manbuns are so 2016!”
Which reminded me of the time I Photoshopped a manbun on Jacoby. I’m still pretty proud of this one.
Tonight, Björn and I are going to see the new live-action Lion King movie. We have been watching the trailers for months now, and one thing about them has really struck us.
There’s definitely a similarity there. And it’s not just Izaak, you know…Millions of innocent cats have been held up in the air because of The Lion King.
Ten years ago tonight, Jacoby Ellsbury did more than juststeal home against the Yankees at Fenway Park on ESPN’s nationally-televised Sunday Night Baseball…he also gave my 12-day old ruddy kitten his name.
We had been discussing names for the kitten, and my ex wanted to call him Jake. I thought that was a little too Cat From Outer Space (You know, like naming a Collie “Lassie” or naming a Siamese “Pyewacket,” “Tao,” or “D.C.” But the moment I saw Ellsbury steal home…I knew what the kitten’s name would be. But, as I explained, I did not name my Jacoby after the player. I named him after the amazing thing that player did that time because someday he’ll probably betray us…but that thing he did will never not be awesome. And, sure enough…in 2014, Ellsbury did precisely that: he joined the Yankees!
But back to happier times. For the 2011 April Fool’s Day post, I put Jake together with the real Jacoby, playing a little ball.
Then, in 2012 the Improper Bostonian Jacoby Ellsbury on its cover of the end of March/early April issue. How could I resist?
It would have been fun to, just once, have the human Jacoby meet the feline Jacoby…
