Friday Cat Blogging - 22 October 2010

| Fri Oct. 22, 2010 2:33 PM EDT

Today's installment of catblogging features rare video footage of Domino doing — well, let's be honest: doing something not very exciting. But new! For her. And I just happened to have my camera around when she did it. That's sort of rare, so today you get rare Friday Cat Vlogging.

To make up for the lack of actual excitement in the video, however, note that my personal video creation skills have taken a great leap forward. Unlike my past crude efforts, this one includes a sophisticated opening title and an actual edit with a diagonal transition. Thanks, Microsoft Movie Maker!

In other pet-related news, Chad Orzel is writing a sequel to How To Teach Physics To Your Dog, so he's running a contest that will benefit the DonorsChoose fundraiser to support public school students and teachers. Here's the deal: Chad's book is full of animal characters, and he promises to name one of them after the biggest donor to his fundraising drive. But what if we all made donations in Inkblot's name? Simple arithmetic would make this the biggest donation, and he'd be forced to recognize this and feature Inkblot in his book. Right? I mean, the guy's a physicist, after all. So head on over there and give til it hurts. The kids it will help are all well and good, but this is really for Inkblot. He'll be watching.
