Kitten Kaboodle

Magazine Ad Cat with Human Features Art Project

When I was a kid I used to take pictures cat food ad kittens and glue cut-out pictures of human eyes and noses and mouths over their features. I made this example tonight to illustrate this:

It took me about 2 hours and entirely too many magazines to find good kitten ad. There used to be a lot more when I was younger.

I love my car because I now have automatic windows, which means that on hot days I can open them all and have wind coming in from all directions. I love Saturns because it was the first car I’d ever been naked in; this fact did influence my decision in buying one. Yesterday I cleaned out all the random papers in my car and I had to lie on the backseat to get them out. It was rather comfortable and brought back some memories.

Don’t get me wrong though, I do miss Krusty the Kar, my old beat up Ford Escort, and how it shook violently when I hit the brake and how the roof rack made the radio stations come in too fuzzy in the rain and how the spare tire was filled with green pennies and how people would think I was a cop in the middle of the night (see again, roof rack).

I read a book yesterday called the Year of Yes. Basically for a year the author went out with every guy (and girl) who asked her so she went out with like over 100 people or something ridiculous like that. WTF? I haven’t been asked out by anyone in the last 2 and a half years (and basically my whole life), who gets asked out that much?

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    You know, I did some research on this woman, and you’re way cuter. No doubt this woman was trolling pickup bars looking for memoir fodder to get to her 100.
