Ever since he arrived, I've been taking regular photos of myself with Dr. Jones using the Photo Booth application on my iMac. He's gained more than five pounds in less than five months, so I figured this was as good a time as any to share the photo progression to date:
- My makeup doesn't necessarily last all day,
- I get a little puffy from time to time,
- I wear glasses in the morning and evening,
- I have no brand loyalty when it comes to cat litter, and
- My office is a disaster area.
Since we're keeping it real, I'll admit that I actually re-shot today's photo before I posted it. I took some pix after I got back from breakfast and immediately regretted that I'd been out in public looking like that. I had residual makeup on from last night's gig, my hair was a giant frizz-ball from loading gear in the rain, and I was wearing an over-sized sweatshirt that made me look enormous. So I straightened my hair, reapplied makeup (even though I'll never get rid of all of the purple glitter eyeliner from last night without a shower or two), and changed into a t-shirt that fits.
Verisimilitude has its limits, is what I'm saying.
Okay, I've completely hijacked this post away from Dr. Jones with my own self-consciousness. Back to him: he's still very talkative, rather needy and a champion eater. I'm looking forward to the day when he's completely grown up and less enthusiastic about things like eating my plants and gnawing on the paperwork I leave on my desk.
So basically he's still an annoying kitten in a big cat's body - but at least he's cute.
