penelope kitten: here’s my new meme on monday.
the humans in the house are transfixed by a tv show about zombies.
i don’t get it.
obvi cats will survive the zombie apocalypse.
zombies will never catch us.
we can climb trees.
we can hear the zombies.
they can’t hear us.
we won’t have anyone to spay/neuter us
so we’ll explode in numbers
while the zombies won’t.
cats will survive the zombie apocalypse.
i’m not scared.

Cynthia: Introducing “mostly me, by penelope”. This will be a regular Monday feature consisting of sweet, fun, and/or inspirational memes by Marcy’s kid sister, Penelope Kitten.
Marcy (outraged): Says who?
penelope kitten: says me.
Cynthia: And me.
Marcy: No way, Cindy. This is MY blog.
Cynthia: It’s only one day out of the week, Marcy. You really need to learn how to share.
Marcy: This is Marcy Very Much. Not Sesame Street. I’m not Big Bird.
penelope kitten: more like oscar the grouch.
Marcy (incredulous): Gasp. I’m leaving.
Marcy indignantly stalks off to her window perch with her tail high in the air.
penelope kitten (calling after her): i’m sorry, marcy. you don’t live in a garbage can.
Cynthia: It’s okay, Penelope. She’ll get over it in a couple of hours. So what do you think? Shall we stick with memes for your Monday feature?
penelope kitten: i love it. there are two me’s in meme.
Marcy can be heard grumbling to herself from the other room.
Marcy (swishing her tail back and forth): I’m so mad.
“In rescuing animals,
I lost my mind
but found my soul”
Marcy: That’s a somewhat sappy and pretentious meme you got there, Cindy.
Cynthia: Really? I thought it was humorous. And the pic is so cool! Striking, in fact.
Marcy: It reeks of earnestness and new-agey spiritual condescension. Like people with babies who say ridiculous things to you like “you don’t know what love is until you have a child.”
Cynthia: Yeah. That was kind of a mean thing to say to me. So why can’t I be earnest back and lecture about animal rescue?
Marcy: Because it’s… (Marcy thinks for a moment) … derivative!
Cynthia: Derivative of what?
Marcy: Derivative of being an asshole.
Cynthia: What!? I don’t think you know what derivative means.
Marcy: Oh, I KNOW what it means. You’re the one who has lost her mind.
Cynthia: I know! That is what the meme is about!
Marcy swishes her tail around and glowers.
Cynthia: Why on earth are you being so contrary?
Marcy: I don’t know. I guess I liked talking about shoes better. Tomorrow I am taking over and talking about shoes.
Cynthia (impishly): You know what shoes have, Marcy? Shoes have soles! Bwahhhaaahaahaa haa haa!
Marcy: Sigh… Living with a mindless soul is not as easy as living with a soulless mind.
Cynthia: But seriously, do you think anyone will get my Duran Duran reference?
Marcy: Double sigh…
