Stray Cat Strut

Today I tripped and fell down stairs and managed not to break any bones. I did twist my left ankle rather badly though. But this post isin't about that.

No. This is instead about Cats.

I'll be the first to admit that in all my years, I haven't associated with them, or got to know them, or thrown them a bone or anything. But lately, cats seem to have been thrust into my life like things that are thrusted into lives without being wanted.

Just the other day, I came back from class, all tired and weary. I open my door and what do I see? A cute orangey cat is plonked right in the middle of my room, staring at me with it's bright green eyes - pretending as if the room is her Kingdom and my books are her subjects. "Off with his head!" she thinks maybe?

"Wierd!", I think. "Damn, confounded! He's back!", she thinks.

And runs straight out of the open door.

Now this is a great mystery to me. How in the world did it get in there? Did it enter in the morning before I left for class? Or is this simply a minifestation of Schrödinger's Uncertainty Principle? But anyhow, I moved on to more profound thoughts, like "What's for lunch?" and soon the Cat-incident was forgotten.

Not yet beaten, the cute cat has yet another brush-in with me.

It was a dark and stormy night. No it wasn't. Yes it was. No, let me tell the story. Damn inner concience.

I was sleeping. I must've been 6 AM in the morning when I heard a thud. Slowly I raise my head and I see a cat scrambling up my bookshelf! There happens to be a window above my room door and she had somehow managed to get up there an jump into my room!

But silly cat.. realizes I'm inside and must now scramble out. She jumps onto my desk, scrambles up my bookshelf, drops all my cards (yes some friends did send me cards on my birthday. Shame on you, all those who didn't.), and jumps out the window again to land on the other side with yet another thud.

Pretty damn cool.

And that brings me to the end of my rant, and to the point which I might as well have just stated instead of rambling on. And that point is this: I wish I could land on my feet like a cat instead of twisting it and having to hop around on one foot like a (slightly defective) rabbit.

i think the fall down the stairs must have something to do with a shift in the centre of gravity of your body which resulted in an unbalanced torque which occurred when you tried to exert an angular momentum during you descent down the complicated pseudo-helix staircases of your dorm, caused by to an uncharacteristic reduction in mass in the upper part of your body...

why the f*ck did you chop off your locks man?!

You should keep the cat! I think of them as low-maintenance dogs.

And Essdee...you mis-spelt concience. And *fonally* as well. Did you hurt your ankle or your typing finger? :P Or is A having its usual detri-mental effect (and here I thought you were immune:P)?
