Friday Cat Blogging – 1 April 2016

For the last few weeks I’ve been on a mission to upgrade my working environment—the very hub of my blogging empire. As these things so often do, it all started with something trivial: a new lamp. Then I got a new monitor, a new monitor stand, a new keyboard, and new cable management to clean everything up. It’s all lovely.

Naturally, I had to upgrade the cats’ snoozing environment too, so I bought a new cat bed to replace the old red blanket. It’s a hit with both critters, but especially Hilbert. And the nice thing about it is that it has side pillows, which keeps Hilbert within the boundaries of the bed when he rolls and stretches. I have created a bounded Hilbert space, which turns out to be excellent for human blog productivity.

And with that, I’ve finally gotten my Hilbert space joke off my chest. It’s been a long time coming.
