web 2.0 awards provoke thoughts on unconditional love
THE SPHYNX VS. THE SIAMESE:
DON'T HATE ME BECAUSE I'M BEAUTIFUL
I'm eagerly awaiting the 2009 web 2.0 awards list- what a helpful way to "catch up" on the year's new coolest web-sites. I linked through to several of the award sites, and then finally stayed put for awhile on Oodle.com since my son wants a kitten and my cat needs a companion.
Now, first my son wanted a siamese- a sleek intelligent human-like creature. But, at some point he decided he wanted a sphynx "because they are so ugly that someone needs to take care of them"; yes, that really is his reasoning (it's called stop breeding them). I'm thinking my current cat is going to have a problem no matter what I bring home. But surely if I bring home a balding crumpled up fetus looking creature it will just compound things? Of course, my current cat, being a four-legged snail, leaves trails of fur wherever he goes, so just maybe a sphynx kitten would balance out the universe somehow. And then I'm confronted with my shallowness because I just don't know how much I could love a sphynx.
Life is good... when these are the things I worry about.
