Men don’t understand science.

This was supposed to be a post about how awesome towels are but then my cat Rolly fucked it all up.  I was going to share my discovery about how if you wrap your hair up in a tight towel-turban when you’re upside down after a shower it pulls your face-skin back so it’s all taut and you look like you just had a mini-face-lift which is cool because you can combat the I-feel-vulnerable-because don’t-have-any-make-up-on problem with the but-I-do-have-a-youthful-fake-face-lift thing, but then when I was setting up my camera my cat jumped on my head.  And technically she does that almost every morning but this particular morning I was trying to document my towel discovery and it was fucking up the whole look, but then I noticed that the weight of the cat body actually pulled the towel further back and made the face-lift thing even more dramatic.  Which was kind of great except that she’s so fat that she sqwooshed my neck so I looked even less swan-like than usual but then I thought maybe it was an okay trade-off because her height gave me the illusion of being taller (which is slimming) so then I was totally conflicted and so I went and asked Victor, “Be honest…does does this cat make me look fatter…or younger?” and he just kind of stared at me and I’m all “Seriously, this is not a trick question.  This is for science.”  And then he was all “You know, you’re the reason why that damn cat jumps on everyone’s head.  If you’d stop letting her ride around like that we’d have a lot less people complaining that our cat attacked their head” and then I was all “I’m not even going to talk to you while you’re being ridiculous” and I walked away because Victor’s mother doesn’t count as “everyone” and besides, the cat was probably just trying to make her look younger.  Or fatter.  Hard to tell with cats.

PS.   This is exactly why I keep a tripod set up in my bathroom.  And also, it makes people take faster showers because they never know if the camera is going to go off.  So I’m saving water and inventing beauty tips.  And also I’m making cats more useful.  You’re welcome, America.

I showed this picture to Victor and he was all "Is that my toothbrush?!" like *that's* the pertinent issue. Victor needs to get his priorities straightened out. And also have no idea if that's his toothbrush. I'm way to busy doing science to pay attention to trivial shit like that.

Comment of the day: Clearly, to activate the scientific part of your brain you need a cat to sit on it. That’s why Einstein’s hair was so fucked up.  He didn’t want people to see the cat.  He wanted all the credit. ~ a

  207. thank you for that. i kinda choked quite a bit here when i began to laugh because i’m laying down with a 15 lb. laptop on my, well – lap. however, unless i start bench pressing it, it will amount to nothing like your science project success. thank you for risking having your new temporary facelift clawed to kitten bits in the name of science. the choking was worth it.

  208. I have heard of asshats but not facelift cathats before. I am all enlightened. I don’t think this would work so well with the Crack Puppy. Her claws are way sharper than a cat’s.

  210. You’re reminding me of a great book for teaching probability that just happens to be authored by my cousin. A major theme of the book is a cat on a boy’s head. Check it out.A Very Improbable Story: A Math Adventure

    Oh, and so sorry about your cat! I hope, hope, hope he turns up.

  211. I am also sorry to hear about your lost cat. But – cats do tend to find their way home again. I won’t tell you the story about the family in Russia who moved from Moscow to Odessa and their cat went missing almost immediately only to turn up some 1,000 miles away at their old home in Moscow 10 years later, because that probably won’t cheer you up since you don’t want ot wait 10 years to have your cat back. Plus you haven’t recently moved from Moscow.

    I will however tell you about our cat Assar who went missing just after Christmas. He’d been out on walkabouts before so we were not all that worried the first couple of days, but after a week we started to get concerned. We put posters up and had people looking for him but no sightings. After about 3 weeks we started to realise he had probably been in an accident, and that he wouldn’t come home anymore. Those were dark times. Another month went by and we had just started to adjust to a life without Assar when he suddenly appeared on the internet, larger than life! It turned out he’d been in a fight and was bleeding, so some kind (but confused) person catnapped him and took him to the vet. There he was scanned for a microchip ID, but they couldn’t find one, so they sent him off to the home for lost cats, who later advertised him on their web site, ready for adoption. So, in the end we did get our cat back (even though we had to buy him back from the cat home), and we still don’t know why his microchip ID didn’t show up at the vets.

    My point is don’t give up. Cats are strange and surprising animals. Not like dogs. When dogs go missing they stay missing until you find them. Stupid animals (and, yes, I’m talking about YOU @LydiaOfficeDog!).

  212. Thinking good thoughts for you, Jenny. I had a cat go missing and then just waltz in back home after 2 weeks had gone by. Like it was No. Big. Deal. Damn cats. They’re heartless…but I love mine. Fingers & toes are crossed….

  214. If she is anything like my cat, she won’t have gone far. Check your landscaping, she’s hopefully just hiding in there feeling sorry for herself. Since she’s a cat, she is constitutionally unable to come when you call. Yes, racial profiling. Sorry. Hope you find her soon! *hugs*

  215. You’ve got kind of a twisted Carmen Miranda thing going on there, chica. And it’s wonderful. Towel is probably a necessity, though…cat claws in the scalp are a bit less than comfortable.
