Dissertation Debris

Friday cat blogging:

orange cat on desk

Night. In my work area, Tink knows where to recline: atop 222 pages of committee-submitted dissertation. She’s idly pawing at the thumb drive that holds my backup copy.

2 cats under skylight

Day. The other side of the office. Again, Tink’s got the paw out. Zeugma grooms herself between my empty reading rack, my full to-do file, and some photocopied essays on class, along with Benkler’s “Coase’s Penguin” and Gibson-Graham’s A Postcapitalist Politics.

    You’ve brought the Friday cat blogging genre to a whole new level here. It’s–if I may say so–very materialist: showing the intersection of the materials of professional/daily life with the daily habits of cats. Just my kinda post.

    (And Tink has very lovely tabby swirls that I’m not sure I’ve ever commented upon.)

    I agree, it’s good, but this is still Mike’s Best. Catblogging. Post. EVAR.

    Donna, I agree about the intersections depicted here, but I would quibble over the word “intersect.” “Subsume” might work, or perhaps “subordinate,” or “makes a comfortable place to nap,” as in “Mike’s dissertation makes a comfortable place for a cat nap.”

    Seven days, Mike. How are you holding up?
