I’m not sure how many more posts I can make about my poor deceased cat, but I’m going to keep going until I stop thinking about it, so there.
Yesterday I made that Picasa album because it was the middle of the night and the house was really lonely. I noticed when I was doing it that there was one picture I could remember but just couldn’t find. I was sure it existed, though. Today, after I got back from watching Anderson Silva actually fight for once, I decided to find it.
I scoured all of my image directories: nothing. Suddenly I knew where it had to be, and woe…woe unto me.
I searched for the box I knew it to be in, and there it was: my old LG VX6100. Then I poured through the box some more…the DATA CABLE! I press the power button and the phone comes to life, reminding me how terrible the battery life on smart phones really is, since this phone hasn’t left a box in over three years and had a three-year-old battery that was half charged when it was put into the box in the first place. So, anyway, I start flipping through the images directory of the terrible digital camera and find quite a few gems I probably should have moved off, but finally there it is, the picture I remember. Skirt was, obviously, one of the most awesome cats around, but I think this was the only picture ever taken of this particular habit of hers:
She didn’t do that as much in her later years, and as far as I know this was the only time she did while a camera was available. It’s an awesome photo, though, and one I knew had to be found. All I had to do was find my old cell phone, find its data cable, find a driver, download bitpim, and connect all of the pieces in exactly the right order to make this happen. The order being: both cables, open bitpim, power on phone. Anything else wouldn’t work.
But, there you go. My cat wandering the house by laying across my shoulders.
