The other day, I decided I wanted a spiffy new header image so I pulled out various items with the idea that I could arrange a still life. It would be a nice casual arrangement of things related to my life and my identity that would look arty and cool like the stuff I see on Tumblr*.
I had momentarily forgotten about the OTHER thing you see all over the internet.
Somehow, despite having about 20 or so cats**, I rarely post pictures of them. They feel left out. So Azrael (seen above) decided there was NO WAY he was going to let me neglect him.
I decided to get a few pictures of him, because – well, look at him.
He really did not want to move, so I went ahead and set stuff up around him.
And then I told him he HAD TO move, since even though I love cats and sex toys, having them in the same picture seemed a little creepy.
So I tried to get a picture while he was out of the frame. And, being a cat, he knew this and refused to stay out of the frame.
Finally, I got this one, and realized that blurry ears in the corner was the smallest amount of cat that was going to be possible and called it a day. Sure, I could have locked him out of the room, but I’m not a monster. And that is your exclusive behind-the-scenes look at my creative process, and Azrael’s part in it.
Stay tuned next week for “Oh God, How is There Cat Hair on This Dildo Already I Just Washed it?!?!?!?” (part 1 in a 34987 part series)
*OR SO I THOUGHT
**This is a slight exaggeration. Maybe.
