I sometimes wish I were a cat. Actually, no, I very rarely do – but ‘sometimes’ sounds better for an opening than ‘I might have once or twice when I was really stressed have wished that I was a cat.’ Anyway. Cats. The internet has a bizarre fascination with cats, which I know of only through secondhand exposure, because despite how much time I spend on the internet I very rarely engage in anything involving memes, macros or anything else of that sort lest it be posted on ONTD, ONTD_P or fashin. (Exposing my browsing list right there.) Basically a lot of internet humor falls flat on me… I don’t really know where and how the internets obsession with cats started, but if I had to really think about it I would say I find it surprising? Mostly because cats are to dogs what Macs are to PCs and I think more people (unfortunately) use PCs.
And the point of this really wasn’t to talk about cats but rather something along the lines of, even though I spend a ridiculous amount of time online there are certain parts of the internet that’s still unknown to me.
I like cats though.
This is a cat I met at a cafe in Seoul; it wasn’t a cat cafe per se, so much as the owner happened to own three kittens that he brought with him to work every day. Adorable little fluff balls. Animals are a pain and a half to take pictures of with manual focus, because much like musicians, they rarely stay still. In this case the lighting in the cafe was quite low as well (it was a basement location at that, so natural light either), and I had the F stop on 1.4 again. hence the very very very narrow focus somewhere in the ear and corner of the eye of my little buddy here.
Apart from that, I’ve figured out what my first ds106 assignment will be! And probably my second choice as well. Will be trying to get one done on the way to school tomorrow, so if you happen to see a blonde girl with a camera at Tamachi station cirka 7:30AM… yeah, don’t come up and say hi because it would totally freak me out.
