I’ve talked about Kitty before haven’t I?
No.. not Pi, Knotty and Kong (Loki).
It’s all that damn Pixar movie’s fault where the little girl calls after the blue monster played by Tom ArnoldJohn Goodman and exclaims “KITTY!” It’s probably still the funniest part of that movie to us – when we first saw it – we had to replay it countless times and literally fell of the sofa in laughter….
mmm.. good stuff.
anyway… Prefect example of a movie-reference pulled out of context and re-inserted into daily language:
Ever since we tend to call anything that’s cute “kitty”.
Hirsute meat-eating men…
Joshua originally started out as a friend-in-law through one of Kevin’s projects friends.
When there was an opening up at RestorationSTL (back when Kevin was still working there with me) he set up an interview for him to come in.
He got the job and has been there since.
So I’ve gotten to know him as first a friend-in-law… then a co-worker / boss’ henchman… then as work teammate… and now as what I’d consider a truly admired friend.
Josh is an enigma… he’s got the mystery-man gig down way better than I ever did when I was his age…
He likes fast cars, fast macs and fast boys…. Think a less prickish Brian Kenny from the Queer As Folk serial.
“Is he Amy GIll’s assistant or some kind of secret agent?”
“I heard he works for the N.S.A.”
All things you could probably hear out in public just out of his ear-shot.
So… Joshua… (or Talan as he goes by in cyber and club-space) – will always be Kitty (kitty-prime) to me. 🙂
Have to remind myself about one of the more important functions of this blog: To record notes / sketches of the people that touch my life…. it helps too since he was just over on the weekend and hung out with us for a spell and I could nab a quick candid photo while we sat around talking about German cars, Adobe Flash applications and OLED interfaces.
