I'm Just a Human Bean

I give up.
I just don't fit in.

I tried to brush up on my Catspeak this morning after getting a letter from Siamese kitty Cheysuli, but it's just not working. I can sing in Latin, German, French and Italian but all I know how to say in cat-talk is puuurr and hiss. Oh the humanity.

Take this for example. Cheysuli writes, "As a presidential candidate, I am a strong proponent of peace. I feel that naps are far more important than war and any war that disrupts naptime is completely without merit."
Who knew they had such far-reaching influence. Who knew??!

(Mimi taking notes from the cats...."Naps are more important than war." What a soundbite. What a concept. They'll get my vote! )

I've decided to be a Persian.
Do you think they'll let me in the Cat Blogosphere now?
But first, I think I'll take a nap.

I love your avatar ~ she looks like you. How did you do that?

I heard a hum and then I realized you had the song going again. I'll be OK.
I guess I am overtired! It's morning but I could use a cat nap anyway.

Happy Sunday and happy napping.

Wow. Cats ARE taking over the Internet. Who knew? Run for your virtual sandboxes, America. I love how lazy and casual cats are...if I ever come back as an animal, I want to be a cat!

Make snores, not wars!

Now that's a platform I could get behind!

You have the perfect cat attitude, so I think we could make you an honourary cat blosophere member! :)

Chey is a great presidential candidate - I hope she wins!

Feel free to tag yourself for the True Confessions meme. :) We cats frequently are tagged my humans, so I don't see anything wrong with cats tagging humans in return! :D

Patti - You need a loooonnngggg nap, sweetie. (grin) Yes, the music is humming for some strange reason before it plays. You're new to the blogosphere so let me explain.

The song you hear "You and Me" by Lifehouse is the theme song for BlogBlast for Peace. Forget for a moment about the romantic video and imagine just the words relating to our collective effort here. For some reason last year, the song just fit. I will play it until BlogBlast is over. Everytime I hear it, I get chills and remember how awesome November 7, 2006 really was.

The avatar - Go to and make one for your blog. It's fun, it's free and it's addictive! If you need help, email and I'll try. You can try on all sorts of clothes and jewelry. It's like playing with paper dolls (back in the day) online. Matter of fact, I think I'll forget the nap and go there now.

I'm such a priss.

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

I am so glad you decided to be Persian! I love company....:-)

Mimi Lenox said...

Gale - Yes, the Cat Blogosphere is a force to be reckoned with. Now, if I could just get the dogs to participate.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - Ha! Great slogan.
I'm getting sleepy again....

Mimi Lenox said...

Cheysuli - Please let me know when you officially announce your cat candidacy. I want to be the first to conCAtulate you. See there? I am learning catspeak.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dragonheart! Do you mean it? Don't you have to vote on or something?


Mimi Lenox said...

Oops.....I mean puuuurrrr.....

Mimi Lenox said...

Maryam - Of course I'm Persian. They're the best. Everybody knows that.

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

Mimi Lenox said...

Bee - Is there a class somewhere?

Anonymous said...

Mimi, I'm quite honored and I'll be getting up my memorial day post to say so!

I have actually already officially announced my candidacy. I run around the country and speak. I've raised 10s of dollars! Can you imagine?!

At any rate, you should get to my official site by clicking the chey for pres button on the right sidebar of my blog!

By the way, welcome to the cat blogosphere!
