HRH and the Word of the Year


In honour of 2013's Word of the Year, my cat Her Royal Highness invited a bunch of her friends over for a Selfie Party. They had a lot of fun!



I was called in to assist with a few of the more creative shots . . . .




As HRH always says, "Put on a happy face . . . and then take a selfie of it!"

Is a selfie a picture you take of yourself ? I've no idea, also what on earth is a 'twerk' ? I know what a twerp is - I suspect it's similar !
sorry, but I'm English through and through, and don't (want) to understand this claptrap !
It's makes my 'A' level in English Language totally redundant.

wait until wean finds out that a twerk is nothing like a twerp!

I've always considered selfies to be self-obsessions. Maybe I'm buzzing behind and I'm way too discreet for this modern world. If I were a cat, I'd be taking pictures of myself all the time, though :-)

What's a twerk?

My cats would fight over the camera.

Kay G. said...

Ha! Now, for your next post, let's those cats twerking!
No, just kidding, I don't ever want to see that again by any living creature!!

So when are we going to see the cat belfies? Not quite as exciting as seeing Rihanna's but still..

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hi everyone -- Yes, a "selfie" is a photo you take of yourself. The Urban Dictionary defines "twerking" as "the act of moving/ shaking ones ass/buns/bottom/ buttocks/bum-bum in a circular, up-and-down, and side-to-side motion. Basically a slutty dance. derived from strip clubs."

Conan makes me laugh and cry at the same time with that joke. Also, human selfies? Usually terrible. Cat selfies? Amazing. Simply amazing.

Carolynn Anctil said...

Oh my gawd! This made me laugh so hard. Now, I have to go find a sharpie and mess with my cat. ;o)

I'm swinging over here from Caroline's new place. I thought if you were among the chosen few she invited to continue with her on her journey, you must be Good People. I'm looking forward to hanging out here.

Blessings,
Carolynn

Anne Johnson said...

I'm gonna give Decibel the camera and let her do a parrot selfie!

Carolynn Anctil said...

I gave you a shout out today. *smile*

Leeanna said...

Did you know that HRH's friends selfies have gone viral? YES!!! It's true!

Francie M said...

Cheers, Debra.
Keep smiling and keep us smiling.

I love cat selfies...not so much the ones of humans!

I am still back in the days when everything was 'cool'. I have no idea what a selfie is, but I do love those precious kitties.

This is just fantastic! Guy agrees with me too! I think you'll be seeing some selfies of him soon!

Guillaume said...

I agree with Conan O'Brien.

Mary said...

Awesome kitty selfies! And i too agree with Conan. We English speaker are such.. an... ahem.. sophisticated bunch. Lol

Professor Chaos said...

O my God, cat selfies are awesome!

Riot Kitty said...

I like cat ones much better that the people ones!

Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar was about to view this posting. I covered the poor dog's eyes.

Love the montage! What a fun idea with the mouths. I may have to try this with my feline housemates! The Oxford Dictionary has been including too many words in recent years that just need to go away.

Adam said...

I like the Conan joke

Introverted Art said...

you should do one "If cats tweaked. I would like to see that!!! ;-)

Beverly Frankeny said...

Just found your blog....love it!!!

Caroline said...

Best selfies ever!!! LOL

DWei said...

If I ever had a cat, I'd do this all day long.

Jeanne said...

Love, Love, LOVE this post! Those selfies are priceless! And I much prefer the word selfie to the word twerk. It rolls off the tongue with a much nicer flow....
{{There is no way in h311 that Gomez would let me do that!}}

Melanie said...

I so love the cats with the drawn mouths. They crack me right up!

And I have a friend who is notorious for taking bathroom selfies everywhere. I just don't understand. It really looks like she must have some serious digestive troubles since she's always in the bathroom!

knitwit said...

I'd so much rather see cat selfies than the ones that keep turning up on my Facebook news feed!
RIP English language!

Elena said...

LMAO! Ok...you are too damned hilarious and oh I love that last smile selfie! Thanks for the laugh!

Dawna said...

That's really funny.. 'the funeral for the English language is this Saturday!' fo' real ..lol. Those cat pics.. gave me a right laugh:)

Magic Love Crow said...

I am always learning something from you Debra! LOL! These pictures are too cute and too funny ;o)

heartinhand said...

The first cat with paper teeth looks exactly like my Kamir!

Jim said...

lololol! I wanna be a cat-person again!!

Cheryl said...

I would much rather see cat selfies than human selfies...but I don't want to see anyone or anything twerking.
