Fun Monday: Art

Sayre has asked us:

Brush off your interview skills. Talk to everyone who lives in your house. I want to know what their, and your, favorite piece of art is in your home. Photographs do not count. If there was a fire in your home, everyone would grab photographs, but what is the non-photographic piece of art you would grab on your way out - and why? (Edit: These don't have to be paintings - these can be wall hangings, statues, lumps of clay by your child, anything that is artistic expression of some kind EXCEPT photographs.)

I am currently living in a hotel. Away from my worldly possessions that I would attempt to save in a fire. Away from the photos I would grab first. Away from my love and my 3rd cat that I would ensure the safety of.

So...if some jackass staying in the room next door fell asleep with a lit cigarette, what would I and my fellow occupants grab?

Well, I interviewed the senior Cat first. Yoda, after she grabbed her bag of weed,



she would grab her favorite fetch toy. My cheesy plastic bracelets that she has absconded.



Kitten, Ms. Chloe, was extremely undecided.


She first picked her mice. Currently residing next to the food bowl. However, their usual spot is on my pillow.


Then, she excitedly changed her mind. And was so riled up that I couldn't get a clear photo. Her choice?

My kitchen sponge. The sponge that I tried to place back in its rightful spot the first time I found it on the floor. She quickly retrieved it and has not left it alone since.



As for me? I have 2 choices....


While the art isn't too shabby. Pointillism is kinda cool. But I am kinda vain and would probably pick the mirror.

Can I just choose my fave possession beyond the cats?



I think Yoda is jealous of Dell.

I would definitely have to get my laptop out too but I really love the kitties choices. You might need that sponge once you're outside to wipe soot off your face.

Well, I think the kitties are too precious!

Oh yes.....I'd much rather go for the laptop than the mirror....maybe tho, you can take both!!!!
[love the photo of the laptop with the kitty AND your blog header]

You are hysterical! I think I would have found it hard to come up with anything for this, yet you come up with cuteness and funny. I still can't believe you're surviving living in a hotel room with two cats....

Your kitties are to cute. I had a cat that liked to take things out of the sink also. My cats get jealous of my computer also.

I'm wondering...your cat DOES look stoned! Catnip? Surely you don't share the weed...

I would take the mirror, too!

I can't believe I left my laptop AND my cats out of my post! But yours? Great!

The laptop certainly counts. And, your cats chose wisely.

Well, not bad artwork for a hotel. I have seen mucho worse. Your kitties are too cute! Grab them and the Dell and get the hell outta there!

BTW, I used to live in Houston (Spring actually). But now I can say "All my exes live in Texas!" Ok, just one ex, but hey,that's been one of "my" songs for many years now ;)

Fianna, you have written a fun post for Fun Monday. Your cats have made such fine selections. I might try to grab the laptop in a fire even though much of the important stuff is on the big computer.

Lisa: Great thought! Chloe is way ahead in her class. I may need to check into Honors for her!

Sauntering Soul: Thank you, thank you. This was a last minute decision to post. Either blog or get to work on time. I called in late! Also, surviving is definitely not the same as enjoying!

Tigger: If I had some, I wouldn't share. She would have to find her own. I am gonna have to check her hiding spots to see what there is underneath the bed!

Thanks to all for their kind words! The kitties are purring in appreciation as well.

I gotta get outta this hotel and find something else to talk about besides the cats!!!
