New Year’s Resolution


Woo Hoo, We Made It To 100!

100th Post

Cynthia:  Marcy, this is our 100th post. Woot woot woot!


Marcy, Cynthia, and Hello Kitty

Marcy:  Really? I didn’t think we’d make it past 5 posts.

Cynthia:  Me either. I kind of can’t believe it. Let’s link to our favorites and conveniently forget the bad ones.

Marcy:  Selective memory. Good call.

Marcy’s Top Three Picks As Explained By Marcy

1.  Marcy Goes To Hollywood because I should be famous, already.
2.  Marcy For Mayor? … because I should be mayor, already.
3.  Is That A Monopoly Moggy Or A Malevolent Marcy Marching Through London?  … because everybody should worship me, already.

Cynthia:  Marcy. That’s the new Monopoly gamepiece, already. It is not a statue devoted to you.

Marcy:  The most excellent thing about being a goddess is that I can choose to hear what I want to hear. And I don’t hear you.

Cynthia’s Top Three Picks As Explained By Cynthia

1.  MIAO: Red Light District’s Cool And Catchy Cat Tune … because this is such a fab neo -swing tune about a cat by our friend Juliette Angeli and her band.
2.  Hot Guys and Cute Cats. Together Forever. …because, well, Johnny Depp.
3.  Brides Throwing Cats … because who doesn’t like a little photoshop Cat Fun?


Marcy:  Not Fun. I will now smite you with my cat goddess power.

Marcy swipes Cynthia with her claws.

Cynthia:  Ouch! For the last time, Marcy. It’s PHOTOSHOPPED.

Marcy:  For the last time, Cindy. I still DON’T LIKE IT.

Marcy (forgetting she was mad):  So what’s in store for the next 100?

Cynthia (enthusiastically):  More creativity. More fun. And, I really want to find a way to raise money for cat rescue in a creative and fun manner. Shall we?

Marcy raises her Friskies can. Cynthia raises her martini glass.

Marcy and Cynthia:  Cheers to the infinite possibilities for 2014 and for the next 100 posts.

Yet Another Gorgeous Cat Eye by Tal Peleg

Yin and Yang cat eye by Tal Peleg

Cynthia:  As long as make-up artist extraordinaire, Tal Peleg, continues to create the most gorgeous and original cat eyes ever, I will continue to blog about them. I think they are magnificent. She calls this one “Yin and Yang” and it’s an update on her first cat eye that went viral last year. I blogged about that one here and her Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat one here.

Marcy:  I thought one of my 2014 New Year’s resolutions for you was to decrease your use of silly superlatives.

Cynthia:  My New Year’s resolution is to increase my use of super superlatives, Marcy. I want a new year that is coated in them.  Now jump on board and join me in marveling at this most marvelous cat eye ever.

Tal Peleg‘s work continues to be intricate, emotional, and artistic. This next one is based on The Princess and the Pea.

Cynthia:  And this next one is a startlingly precise depiction of manic depression.

Marcy:   That is so pretty… but… so dark. Just like me.

Cynthia:  Yes, so can we please aim for a year that contains more electric pink butterflies and less crying coal?

Marcy:  I aim high. At least to the top of the refrigerator.



Marcy’s New Year’s Resolutions For 2014

Marcy In Her Box

Cynthia:  Hi Marcy.

Marcy:  I’m in my box.

Cynthia:  I know. Want to tell me your new year’s resolutions?

Marcy:  Well, I’m in my box.

Cynthia:  You can tell me from your box.

Marcy:  Okay. ‘Cause I’m in my box.

Cynthia:  Yes. I know. So, what will you change or improve upon for 2014?

Marcy:  Okay. Here’s the list as… Decreed From My Box.

Number One – Cindy will feed me more Friskies.
Number Two – Penelope Kitten will find somewhere else to live.
Number Three – Scooter will give me his sunspots, cat nip, and tennis ball.
Number Four – Freddy will rub my face more often.
Number Five – Cindy will feed me more Friskies.

Cynthia:  Those are resolutions for others. The idea of a new year’s resolution is to change yourself for the better. Or, to achieve goals that you set for yourself.

Marcy:  No.

Cynthia:  No?

Marcy:  No. I reached all of my goals and became perfect 3 years ago. It’s others who need improvement.

Cynthia:  I don’t think you can do that, Marcy.

Marcy:  I can do anything. I’m in my box.
