'partment Wars

Some of you asked whether I decorated our 'partment with nice muddy paw prints. Well, Momma tried wiping some of the mud off of my paws, but I don't like people messin' with the feets. So I had to get most of the mud off myself. I didn't leave too many prints, though, because I cleaned up in the kitchen. See what a nice guy I am? Coco gets dirty paws and a dirty belly, too, sometimes, because she's got a low wiener-dog chassis. So Momma always keeps a towel by the door anyway and we got little rugs everywhere and a washable cover on the sofa. So even when we do decorate things with furs and paw prints, they get cleaned up.

Some of you also asked about my momma's Ph.D. She is getting a Ph.D in Theatre Studies, concentrating on history and aesthetic theory. I am not exacting sure what this means, except that not only does she read a lot of philosophy books by dead Germans, she also goes out a lot at night to see plays and movies. As far as I can tell, she's pretty weird by Bean standards, but she's my momma, so I love her.

But she got back at me for stayin' out too late and for gettin' muddy paws. Look--she caught me droolin'!!! I gotta figure out how to work the flashy box so I can get her back...

You are very thoughtful to clean yourself up in the kitchen! Not all kitties would be so nice. I actually like that picture, Jimmy Joe. You look very relaxed . . . and cute. I'm sure some of the girl kitties will swoon when they see that picture.

(Don't feel bad. I drool sometimes, too. Usually on my mommy.)

You looks funny with yor tongue stuck out like that! For some reason beans like to take pictures of kitties with their tongues stuck out. We just don't get it. I think all of our beans are weird, not just your Mommy! Silly beans!

It was very nice of you to clean up in the kitchen, Jimmy Joe. Your mom's studies sound very interesting. My mom is getting her Masters in physiotherapy, so she studies the human body and stuff. That's a very cute photo of you! :)

OMIDAWG. That is the funniest (I mean, most humiliating!) photo ever.
Sometimes ML will say to me: "What's with the tongue?" cuz I stick mine out a lot too.
But not when I'm sleeping.
And never drooling.
Never.

Nice to meet a tidy kitty. Me, I am not one of them! I drag in grass, leaves, mud and everything else from the garden and leave signatures all over the kitchen and family room.

Your mom's dissertation is way more interesting than SS's. SS loves the theatre and would gladly help by going to the theatre! Anyway, hers is on characterization of prehistoric ceramics in the Iranian Central Plateau. I don't understand any of it but I might consider doing a blog of it some day when I want to bore everyone out there.
