The TRUTH about Cats


Pictures of cats on the internet are not very new or exciting things. In fact, seeing cats on the internet is an incredibly average occurrence. They practically live here.

As you may have noticed, nearly all cat pictures include captions. And these captions usually personify the cat in some way or another.

What the internet fails to realize is that most cats do not think like people. They think like cats. AverageCats seeks to remedy this misinformation by providing a helpful, pictorial primer on cats.

AverageCats uses the accepted lolcat style to explain simple truths about cats. Any humor that arises from these pictures is coincidental.

Today in English class, I opened a Letter to Myself that I wrote in sixth grade. After reading it, I noticed that I had left myself $10. sixth grade me told myself, "To get something nice for your girlfriend. And if you don't have one, you're a loser." I was a cool kid. MLIA

Today, I was eating cheese fries from Checkers. I noticed the box said "CAUTION: Contents may be extremely awesome". My cheese fry experience was heightened simply by those words. MLIA

Today, I was washing my hands in a gas station restroom and when I went to dry my hands I noticed the hand dryer directions say do not operate with wet hands. I'm still not sure what to do. MLIA.
I love the internet.

"I love it!"

The words uttered by our very excited 2-year-old daughter upon seeing her new cars bed for our camping trip this weekend.

Who am I? You decide.

Jim Metcalf, a hotel business tycoon in Hawai'i recently sold me my domain, for a few hundred bucks (he was holding it onto for his son, Mike, but he didn't want it). I'm REALLY excited to finally own the domain, as I've had my eye on it for awhile. But now that I have, I'm not exactly sure what to do with it.

For web designers, a strong portfolio is far more important than a college degree or an awesome resume. Fortunately, I have a great job right now, but with child #2 on the way, it's become even more important for me to make sure I have something to fall back on. So my new website will basically be a place where I can strut my stuff, and hopefully serve as a means of bringing in extra work for Code Greene too!

So I got the domain, I've got the skills, now I just need to put it together right? This should be a cinch right? I opened up Illustrator a few nights ago with hopes of coming up with a good logo for my new me, and ended up just staring into the void. I read an article about redesigning for yourself, and found some revealing advice. Before I can redesign, I need to rebrand. So who am I? What are my roots? How am I unique from the thousands and thousands of other designers in the market?

I spent a morning writing down adjectives I thought described myself. It was a helpful exercise, but my own perception is not always parallel with how others might perceive me. And so I turn to you, dear friends... I need your help!

If you would be so kind, please write down 3 adjectives that you think describe who I am. Please be completely honest in your responses (it's ok to use words like "grotesque", "dastardly", or "obnoxious"). You might also use words such as "charming" or "definitely hotter than Taylor Lautner".

Once you write down your adjectives, please post them as a reply to this post along with how long you have known me, and your relationship to me.

Name: Santa Claus
Adjectives: nice, skinny, ungrateful
Relationship: jolly friend
Time known: forever

You are forbidden to read others' responses before posting your own. So write it down on paper before you scroll any further!

Did you write it down yet?

Ok, you can open up Notepad or Textedit too. You don't actually have to use a pen (I can tell you were worried).

Alright, got it? Sweet, post away.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
