He's always around when I'm on the computer, usually on the desk between me and the monitor, no matter how many times I try to explain to him that I am TRYING TO DO SOMETHING HERE, and additionally, I am LOOKING AT THE MONITOR AND CATS ARE NOT SEE-THRU. He gets tossed to the curb, and eventually settles for the windowsill behind the desk.
But lately he's taken everything a step further, and he actually goes from my desk to my SHOULDERS. Like, he puts both front feet on my shoulder and shifts his weight so that his body is up against the side of my HEAD, and then he just STAYS there! Weirdo! I like to pick his hind legs up off the desk so that he's totally off balance and at my mercy. Sometimes I push him back so that he has to jump off my back, but the other day he kept going. He climbed up and around and went behind my head and around the other shoulder and back onto the desk. WEIRDO. And this is not a small cat. This fucker's at least sixteen pounds, he's a big solid male cat.
So the point of all this boring cat-talk (it's somewhat interesting to observe, I swear) is that last night he stepped on the keyboard and invented a new emoticon:
Swear to God, that's what he typed. It represents someone zerberting in tears. Conspiratorially.
