Hi all, you probably know something is wrong or has annoyed me when I say hello before I write my blog and I am spitting teeth today.
As you probably know by now if you are one of my original fans I loathe facebook for all sorts of reasons and have never used it to promote my books, blog or any other wonderful cat products, they have sold themselves by recommendation and word of mouth happily.
I also hate facebook because of their lazy use of the letter ‘f’ and the fact that Apple and other of the other spell checkers around the world try to change their name because they thought it would be trendy to use a lower case ‘f.’
Mind you I also think that it is a bit odd that even facebook’s own spellchecker will change your ‘proper’ use of their name – but then that is probably more to do with my computer when I think about it – BUT IT IS STILL ANNOYING!!!!
Today I have been trying to talk to facebook because they accused me, yes the Cat of being a spammer, what sort of a bunch a bunch of things you sit on and the holes between are they?
They obviously don’t read the messages people like me send out to other ‘friends’ on their system and I use the word ‘friends’ lightly here of course, no they just seem to assume that if you do what I imagine 90% of all of the other facebook users do and that is not write anything and just do a lot of clicking and playing of inane games you are obviously spamming. I do wish they could read, but even more so I do wish that there was some way of contacting the idiots and telling them just how wrong they are.
As I wrote on my page facebook “seems to have a lot in common with North Korea, lots of accusations, a couple of spineless informers, no trial and loads of punishment for a crime I didn’t commit.”
No wonder the value of facebook is tumbling!
As you may or may not know I was a member, friend or whatever they call it before on facebook back in the old days when I was ‘allowed’ to use my identity, The Cat but now all that has changed or so it seems and poor old John Woodcock my translator has to have the label as ‘spamming bastard’ well it doesn’t suit him because it isn’t true all because I can’t have a facebook page now.
Why? I hear all of my very cuddly readers ask was I bothering with such an inferior website such as facebook when I have such a superior blog and website and a new addition to my website coming soon well the simple answer to that is (as I said on facebook just a minute or two ago) that I have decided that I am not getting anywhere with the hollywood types I have been dealing with about the movie of my masterpiece of feline literature “Getting Out Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary” and have decided to make it myself, my Mum used to say “if you want anything doing then do it yourself!” And that seems like good advice.
So what I have done so far is to persuade the accused spamming bastard above to drop a movie project about, of all things, Dogs and do something useful, namely a movie about me, well it might be a TV series we will see.
At the moment I am putting everything together, I have a colleague in South Carolina where we will make a base for the movie and I plan to bring together a lot of very of very talented people, but having said that I may just have to run with the team I can assemble but and it is a big one, I am going to put my project up on a crowd funding site called Kickstarter.
By the time I am ready it will probably be there by the middle of November especially as I will be away from Cat HQ from next Friday for 10 days, I am going to Siberia of all places to make a film!
So do look out for me spreading the word about my little Kickstarter project, I am trying to think of some really great rewards for all of your hard earned folding stuff and just think this time soon you could be watching me on a silvery screen near you – how cool would that be?
