Saturday: Hili Dialogue

Jerry has several posts scheduled for today, but I’m in charge of starting off the morning.

It’s National Cat Day today – not to be confused with International Cat Day of course – so, pretty much a day like any other, but with extra cats.

In history, the 29th has been a litany of humanity at its worst: genocide, witchcraft trials, natural disasters and general murder and mayhem, too depressing to recount on a Saturday.

On a brighter note, today is the birthday of Kate Jackson, my favorite of the Charlie’s Angels TV series because she was smart and usually managed to keep most of her clothes on.

Kate’s the one on the right hand side in case you are wondering.

Over in Poland today, Hili and Cyrus are once again engaged in serious philosophical discussions.

Hili: We are facing the problem of freedom and responsibility.
Cyrus: Yes, sometimes it’s only responsibility that stops me from doing what I want.


In Polish:

Hili: Stoimy przed problemem wolności i odpowiedzialności.
Cyrus: Tak, czasem tylko odpowiedzialność powstrzymuje mnie przed tym, na co mam ochotę.

  1. The orange cat is thinking: “What the hell?”
    If she only could speak. But, I don’t think she needs to worry about a forced early retirement. After all, she’s as sentient as Hili.

  2. Loved the expression on the orange kitteh.

    Of course the coin-grabbing box is just a development of the original ‘useless box’ that just switches itself off whenever switched on.

    I’ve always found that original concept to be curiously satisfying. A machine that just wants to be left alone. With no purpose in life other than to switch itself off. Some people are said to find this quite disturbing in a philosophical way.
