Facebook, odd, funny but not really friendly!

The Cat Portrait2

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?

Back to School

Do you think that bad teachers leads to underage drinking and alcoholism in later life?

Back to school before you break open the drinks cabinet

Or do you think that bad teachers should be committed or as the genius who commissioned this sign prefers “committed.”

Commited  they should be

We should stop making fun of foreigners!

Don’t you think it’s terrible of us English speakers to make fun of foreigners who try to speak English?

I know that when I was learning English people made fun of me when I tried to pronounce English words but frankly ‘Cat’ pronunciation is so very different to human speech that I am surprised I can make myself understood at all and when it comes to writing… well you have to remember that Cat’s don’t have a written language which means that the mere fact I can speak and write English is a work of considerable genius. Or is that the work of a considerable genius? You decided I am too modest to say.

When I hear people making fun of others wrestling with English I tend to feel very sorry for the poor devils who are being laughed at, except when it’s the French but that goes without saying doesn’t it?

I also feel terrible when I see articles or indeed blogs making fun of foreign words that are innocent in the language they were being used in but tend to make us English speakers fall over with laugher.

Below is a good example of what I am talking about a chemist shop in Brazil!

A Chemist with a problem Brazil

Human language is funny isn’t it!

Does this look ‘reasonably’ familiar?

Facebook

Hello to all my dear cuddly readers, yes you are right the picture does look familiar! Not only are you well acquainted with the marvellous pictures of yours truly but you might know the struggling website I am gracing them with.

Yes that’s right I have decided to help poor little Marky Zuckerberg and add my support to his, oh what do they call those awful things, oh yes “social network.”

I prefer to think of them as captive advertising sites where you have no choice but to ‘like’ Nike, personally I can’t think of anything much worse than doing that, well oh ‘liking’ Mitt Romney just might be pushing the boundaries of taste!

facebook no I said facebook – sorry Apple currently likes facebook and so although the silly sods there called their site, err sorry social network facebook Apple keeps autocorrecting the word, unlike I have to add – google, android, samsung (even though they gave Apple shed loads of cash recently, or indeed microsoft, Apple’s spell checker just thinks that microsoft is just a misspelt word and underlines it in red, mind you I think I detect a thaw in the relationship there, type in Microsoft with an uppercase ‘M’ and Apple with leave you to your own devices and say nothing.

All of which means I have moved away from the point, ho hum, which is! I am ‘on’ facebook and apart from gathering nice cuddly friends it is something of a let down. I didn’t expect dancing girls and fireworks when I joined of course, but after filling in all of the information like religion – “catolick” though I can’t understand why I can’t use a capital C when typing the name of my religion on facebook I am sure that Zuckerberg Inc allow Jews and Muslims to capitalise the names of their religions.

Maybe us catolicks just aren’t radical enough and I should ‘suggest,’ no that isn’t a radical enough word, maybe I should ‘demand’ that us catolicks get the same rights as all of the other religions of the world, or we’ll, mmmh need a big threat quick, oh yes or we’ll eat all the Prawns in the world.

And don’t even get me started on my political views or my language skills, why can’t I enter ‘Cat’ I speak it? Since when has Democat not been a political party? I am a fully paid up member so why can’t I proudly announce to the world that I am one, why does Facebook (oh autocorrector you beat me) not let me enter my deeply held political beliefs?

Still I did manage to put up some nice pictures of my pals, Burt the Black & White Cat is there, Randolph the Mountaineering Cat is there (well his last known picture is) and loads of other wonderful friends all I need now is your pictures on my page so that we can start doing what you do on a social network and that is to sell you things by the bucketful!

I wonder what they were thinking?

Am I the only Cat (but please read ‘person’ here) to think that there is something wrong with this shopping centre ‘Baby Station?’ Surely that microwave is only big enough for one baby at a time and there is loads of seating!

Warning only one baby at a time please

I love the instructions on how to use a microwave glued to the door don’t you? Just another sign of dumb Britain.
