    Tennis
    18 October 2007

    I guess my blog makes sense only to me lately, and I like it this way. From now on all my readers (yes, all five of you) are excused if they find more interesting things to read and comment on. Really, I wouldn't read my blog if I were you! I can't write about anything that really interests me because:

    1. I am not anonymous (yeah big surprise)
    2. I am married (self explanatory)
    3. It seems like everyone knows about this blog (therefore I can't bitch about anybody)
    4. I live in a Muslim country... and I would like to continue living here (if you don't know what I mean, you never lived in a Muslim country)
    5. The person who is the reason and inspiration behind most of what I post couldn't give a flying mushroom
    6. I am too old to try and be funny when it doesn't come naturally
    7. Most of the things I would like to blog about will inevitably piss someone off, and I just can't be bothered, honestly.
    8. I am so far gone I don't even need an audience anymore, lol.
    9. Tennis posts will make the sad current situation even worse.

    So... I will risk being labelled as an airhead, and post stupid irrelevant things until I get fed up and take up skydiving or something like that. Until the laptop becomes redundant and I forget my own URL. Ta da.

    Irrelevant thing for today: how Cat got her nickname.




    It was secondary school, and boys only just started trying to attract the girls' attentions. We had this silly game going around that gives a description of a person based on their eye colour. In my class we had all sorts - at least 10 different shades of grey, plenty blues, browns, hazels, and I was the only one with green eyes. Green wasn't so common even where I come from. The list of characteristics given to my particular eye colour implied feline qualities - so to play it up a little I started meowing, lol. Well that was the only feline quality I could think of at that age, haha. It was, apparently, cat-like enough and the name stuck. From there on I started getting all sorts of Cat paraphernalia as presents, I have an enormous collection of cat mugs, cat figurines, cat pics and all stuff "cat", and I don't even like cats! But I got used to my friends calling me Cat ;-)

      Don't worry, I will keep on reading, and keep blogging, it helps make the working hours pass quicker.

      Don Veto,

      Thanks, that's good to know :) And you are right, blogging helps.

      Anon,

      No I am not an Arab, and I don't wear eyeliner. However, on this pic I do have some traces of eyeliner, lol.

      مجرد انسان ,

      Welcome to my blog. I dunno, you can either subscribe to my RSS feed, or just check my blog once in a while to see if I posted something new. I usually do at least one (silly) post a week.

      ZeroCool,

      You always make me feel better about myself for some reason, thanks! ;-)

      If it helps you can always bitch about me! :-P

      I HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE !!

      Does that count for something ?

      ... and yes, I can understand how the lack of anonymity can make it hard to speak the truth in a Muslim nation.

       
    • At 19/10/2007, 09:10, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Baj,

      Sweetie, why would I bitch about you?

      Mattie,

      Haha yeah I know you have no idea who I am, and you're also very far away. But I know you understand what I mean!

      you have to explain what a tennis post is. and yes, i agree with all the points above! they make this whole blogging thingy a bit less exciting than it could/should be!

       
    • At 20/10/2007, 19:28, Blogger Taras said…

      Your passion for all things feline has inspired me to share some funny pics with you:)

      I took these on the dawn of Sept. 30, the day we had parliamentary elections in Ukraine. I call them the "watchcats of Ukrainian democracy.":)

       
    • At 20/10/2007, 19:44, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Max,

      :P :P

      Ammaro,

      I am a huge tennis fan and I used to post a lot of tennis stuff. Go through my blog you'll see what I mean. Used to bore people to death with it.

      Taras,

      Hahaha I don't have passion for anything feline (well maybe for a certain panther, but that's another story) but those pics are hilarious! LOL I played with a similar pic of a Saudi cat and came up with a lot of fun stuff. Check this out!

       
    • At 20/10/2007, 19:44, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Oh and Taras, your links don't work, and mine does :P :P

       
    • At 21/10/2007, 16:19, Blogger Taras said…

      Hahaha:)! Thank you, Cat!!! You've just contributed to my continuous improvement;)

      Now my watchcats are as accessible as yours:

      WatchCat1

      WatchCat2

      I had this terrible typo in the title of one of my recent blog posts, and it took me four days to notice it:(burning in shame).

      So whenever you notice something weird, please let me know:)!

       
    • At 21/10/2007, 17:03, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Taras,

      Kewl! You live, you learn, they say :P :P

      Don't hate me! lol

       
    • At 22/10/2007, 07:08, Blogger Luthien said…

      You've got beautiful eyes kitty, and you know it. Don't despair - your blog is as funny as ever, even though I can tell you are still not OK. Come on, it's been a while now, time to move on. Lots of other fun things to do.

       
    • At 22/10/2007, 14:58, Blogger ammaro.com said…

      oh.. so its literally a 'tennis' post. i thought it was figurative for something else.

      tennis posts.

      wow.

      how exciting.

       
    • At 22/10/2007, 15:22, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Luthien,

      Get your old nick back please, you spooked me for a moment until I read your other comment about Santorini and put the two together! Lets concentrate on fun things to do, girl. I could sure use some fun.

      Ammaro,

      Lucky you - a tennis post is coming very soon! :P

       
    • At 22/10/2007, 22:43, Blogger Taras said…

      Why should I hate you? Or Alanis Morisette, for that matter?:)lol (In fact, she's one of my teen queens!;)

      And you're the one who helped me learn my way out of the art of posting half-assed hyperlinks:)))

       
    • At 23/10/2007, 09:38, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Taras,

      Alanis Morisette? Really? *rolls eyes* LOL! Boys :P

      As for the hyperlink - nevermind me, I have a little note file saved with the template for hyperlinks! ROFL I could never remember the code for it, and never will.

       
    • At 23/10/2007, 23:39, Blogger Bob said…

      Is that really your eye or did you just cut and paste them from some model? Nice eye anyway.

      You don't like cats? hmmm? I always pictured you as one of those sweet but a little crazy cat ladies who live with like a million cats and their houses always smell like pee.

      The eye thing is better.

       
    • At 23/10/2007, 23:42, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Bob,

      Wow you nailed me! That's me in a nutshell. Oh and that's not my eye, that's one of my cats' eye. Pretty, eh?

      :P

       
    • At 24/10/2007, 02:04, Blogger i*maginate said…

      And to top it all off..an eye pic...(and a nice one at that)...how demonstrative of your local understanding! :)

       
    • At 24/10/2007, 14:12, Blogger Taras said…

      Well, you're not the only one to use that technique;)!

       
    • At 24/10/2007, 17:29, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      i*maginate,

      Hello there :) An eye pic is there cause it illustrates the point, not because I am an Arab girl who wouldn't have her pic on an internet site! :P Those people who want to know what the rest of me looks like can click on the Flickr thingy on the left hand bar and there are plenty of my pics there.

      Taras,

      Well it makes me feel better! :P
