Doc Searls, American Porn, & a suddenly affectionate cat

Late this afternoon I made a good start on a post about the diverse responses to Doc Searls and the babe blogs. I went out for dinner, making it back just in time to start taping the PBS Frontline documentary American Porn (I did work experience in a porn shop for a couple of months last year, in the course of researching my book).

I lay down on the sofa to catch my breath and watch the first ten minutes of the program before getting back to writing. But Reimi-chan appeared beside me and—for the first time since I brought her home—jumped up on my chest and settled down on my stomach to watch TV. This was the moment I’d been waiting (and hoping for). She’s been skittish and reluctant to be picked up. Then, last night, she walked along the top of the sofa, leaned down, and licked my face. Still, I didn’t expect her to want to sit on me so soon and I sure as hell didn’t want to disturb her.

Now it’s late and my spirited defence of Doc Searls must wait until tomorrow.

The funny thing is, Doc didn't even know about this until he saw this in your weblog, Jonathon.

Nothing like being one of the invisible in the land of the purely sighted, is it?

You all do your spirited defense of Doc. I'm bowing out of all this crap.

BTW, your sister is right. You need to get little love her own collar.

Cats can be like that sometimes, it just takes a little time
