Learning the Computer

MISTY

I'm learning how to use the computer. See?

Maybe I'll become an internet star or maybe a computer geek. Oh wait, that doesn't sound too good does it? Internet star sounds much better.

TIPPER

Yes, it's true. Lately Misty goes over by Mom every time she sits down at the computer.

MISTY

I've discovered this neat little flashy thing Mom calls a "cursor", and she says it doesn't have anything to do with Max's bad word list, either. There's also a pointy arrow that flies around when Mom types for us and I like to put my paw on it and try to catch it while it races around the screen. The trouble is, it's too fast for me and I never catch it!!

Sometimes I sit in front of the screen and watch it or I walk back & forth in front of the screen. Then Mom says "Misty...move. I can't see!" So then I go behind and drape myself over the top of the screen and I look down and watch the arrow move around from upside down. It's really fun to reach over and try and grab it.

Mom doesn't mind as long as I sit still, but it's really hard to sit still when you're trying to catch the arrow. For some reason, she gets upset if I start blocking the screen while she's looking at it.

Well I'm sorry Mom, but this is important.

Oh, Mom says pay no attention to the mess on our desk, but did everyone notice our cool Cat Blogosphere sticker?!

One of the first things our Daddy taught us was not to walk on the keyboard. Because of this, we try to block the screen whenever we can. Sometimes a kitty just has to have the last word, you know? You look very cute sitting on top of the monitor though!

I can't sit on momma monitor, its a laptop. I did find a cool pointer hand to chase and its HUGE. Momma just got a new toy called a Wiiiii and it make a huge pointer hand on daddy's giant noise box. I like to jump at the screen and try to catch it. ~Queen Snickers

Oh we love to chase th cursor too - but since Mommy uses a laptop it's hard to catch it without stepping on the keyboard (which usually results in ejection from the comfy lap!).

Mum has a laptop on her lap when she works. So I can't drape myself over the monitor thingy. But that would be a warm place to nap.

Very nice pose. I have tried to do that before but the PM has Mac and the screen is very skinny and moves so I ended up really making a fool of myself in the process. I am glad the camera wasn't around to capture that!

Misty, it looks like you have a great perch there, on top of the monitor! :) We like to chase the cursor too - it's fun to watch things moving across the screen! :)

I'm not much of a computer cat myself... but Pumpy? Oh he comes running every time the woman sits down in front of the computer.

Computers are hard. Misty, I think you are already an internet star!

Kaitlyn, one who came before used to always sit on top of mommy beans computer screen. She was always there even when mommy bean wasn't using it. I guess its fun (and warm) to sit on top of them.

Oh Misty, you look so cute draped over the computer monitor! You are definately an internet star!

I like to sleep on the keyboard while Mum tries to type - for some reason this bothers her so I then switch to sleeping on her forearms while she types. It's a little bothersome for me because her fingers keep moving, but I deal with it. I think she really enjoys it, even though she sighs when I do it.

We just have a laptop. This makes it very hard to sit on top of the computer as you might have already guessed. I have a little mini-Gizzy for the computer that I lay on when Mommy isn't typing.
Misty, I think you are a star already! AND I love your bumpersticker!

Wow, learning the computer! That is great. I could try too, but I think I'd rather sleep and let mom do the work!
P.S. My Misty would like to be friends with your Misty....but she was too scared to come out and tell you herself!
