Mutterings continued.

Nothing very exciting in the post today; just a reminder that Manfred's insurance is due.

Channel Ten was in to film the Painted Dog puppies today - the piece should be on tonight after the weather. A couple of newspapers were also in to see the kiddies.

The baby Baboon is very independent now - I was watching him wander around on his own (though not too far from Mum).

Amusing: How to Photograph a Cat

Put the cat on a pillow.

Set up your camera.

Put the cat back on the pillow.

Get a bowl of food and put it next to the pillow.

Put the cat back on the pillow.

Grab the food bowl and follow the cat. As you run, hold the bowl in our cat's face, tempting her to eat.

See if the neighbors will come over and pick up the sofa while you snap a picture of the cat underneath.

Cross the names of your neighbors off the list for your next party.

Put the cat back on the pillow.

Place a catnip-stuffed mouse in front of your cat and wait for your cat to go crazy.

Go back to the pet store and demand a refund.

Decide on a family portrait with the cat instead.

To stop the argument over which child gets to pose with the cat, agree to take pictures of each child holding the cat on her lap.

Tell each child that it doesn't matter who holds the cat first because you'll shuffle the pictures after they're developed and look at them in a different order than the order they were taken.

Get more cats, one for each child, and go back to step one.

Speaking of amusing, I was watching a show on VH1 the other night and the lovely Mike Nelson popped up a couple of times to comment on horror movies.
